Played it on PS3 and hated the combat. Going to give it another try on PC though.
That said, I find myself strangely attracted to this new PC edition (if only because I hope in a 1HKO option in the trainer which will give me immense schadenfreude when facing adamantoises).
Still, I personally hope to see more of the older titles on PC: we already have III, IV, VII and VIII; I'm still yearning for VI and IX
The game was designed well, looked amazing, some awesome video. Sure the game was linear to a point, but after that the game did open up more.
I just hope the PC version will have HD video and not heavily encoded video. That would be a bummer.
What really bothered some people (including me) was the fact that the game was linear to the point that you felt like you were wearing a straitjacket. This was particularly evident in the combat system where 99% of the time it was more convenient just to click auto every single time.
I like FF games in general, but this element was a bit insulting; I think Yahtzee put it the best "Final Fantasy has generally made an effort to mix the combats up with each game, and this time it makes it very clear that it would prefer to involve the player as little as possible"

Especially the hunt bosses, that took some planning.
Not sure how far you actually got into the game, but the first two discs were easier than the last disc. The third disc is what I liked the most because you were able to go anywhere and do anything at that point. The first two discs of this game sets up all the story for the entire trilogy. Yea it started off slow but in the bigger picture it's a great group of games.
