Great battle system and take on the job system (minus the transformations you can turn off), awesome option of New Game+ (that all FF games should have). Then the positives end as even the music is mostly subpar and it's a mess everywhere else. The game is even outright cringeworthy at various points even considering the fact it's a JRPG.
This is GameFAQs. People here take great pride in ignoring common sense.

I can't think of a single thing I liked about the game. Story was bad, characters that were decent before were now bad, side quests and mini games weren't enjoyable, and for a turn based game the battle was too chaotic to enjoy.
Nothing wrong with a 40 year old man watching anime intended for 5 year old Japanese girls.

I think it has to do with the beginning being so offsetting to so many people. Personally I thought it was significantly better than it's predecessor.

Some people didn't like to play as girls only. Other than that, the game actually has better gameplay than the first one, but the story is not as good.

The story, characters, and writing are some of the worst in the history of mankind! Have you gotten to the part where they throw a dance party yet!? Its not FF, its Charlies Angels meets Barbie

Weird ass story.
Weird ass characters.
Nothing made sense.
They fell off big time.

It's one of my least favorite Final Fantasies. To be fair I think part of it has to do with my play style but still. Let me describe what I didn't like about it:

Didn't like the story You start the game trying to get back Tidus, okay I'm fine with that. Then the story completely deviates from that, which is fine I guess but I didn't like where it went. And finally at the end Tidus comes back for literally no explainable reason. I guess I just felt the story should have been about getting Tidus back. If they wanted to do something else than fine but why bring Tidus back at all then?

I found certain scenes to be absolutely cringe worthy (and that doesn't happen to me often). The freaking concert in the Thunder Plains, most embarrassing thing in a video game I've ever seen.

Trying to get 100% was just awful. I realize now that I was probably going about it wrong and that I should have planned multiple playthroughs from the beginning but trying to get 100% in one playthrough was painful. It's so easy to make a stupid little mistake that screws you over, and a lot of the side quests are painfully boring (I'm looking at you PR and Wedding quests).

The battle system, which is often considered a strong point, I didn't love. My main problem is that I don't like switching jobs, I'm this way in III and V too but it's not such a big deal then. I want to master a job before I move on to something else but playing that way I'm the same job for the entire game. Literally my first playthrough I think Rikku was a thief the entire game.

And that about sums it up. I know some of these might just be personal problems and that's fine but the game just didn't appeal to me. I'll be trying it again soon since I bought X/X-2 though, we'll see if that changes my mind at all.

The only great thing about that game was the opening credits. Reminded me of FF 8. S*** got me hyped then everything went south after I press start then new game.

Battle system is fun, the writing is cringe-level awful all the way through.
