i heard dirge of cerberus's story was great.. haven't played it tho... but they say it happened 1 yr after ff7AC.. its story is about vincent.. vincent is really mysterious.. and i think it would really have a good story..

the sad thing about the game is that it is compared to devilmaycry... although the game play is like DMC.. i think the impt part is the story.. ehehehe...

It's not they think it, they know it. Of course, I'm as guilty of it as anyone else, but I'm pretty forgiving when it comes to Square (though I won't touch KH with a ten foot pole).

Personally, I liked AC a lot. Great fight scenes, good animation, and I loved seeing the realistic characters designs. I thought the plot was good enough though nothing spectacular. It answered some questions from FF7, but was enough of a stand alone story. A wonderful eye-candy trip down memory lane.

There were some plot holes and "why didn't they just..." moments, but it's hard to translate game mechanics to a movie format. Kind of the whole "why not use a phoenix down on Aeris" deal - it's there to add dramatic effect and tell a story. So there had to be a few things that were swept under the rug or downplayed. They had enough old school nods to keep it interesting, and enough fresh material not to just be rehash of old material. I liked how every major character got some screen time.

I'd just like to see a streamlined remake of FF7 with next gen graphics done in the character style. They've been cock-teasing us forever with it, I refuse to beleive they won't do it eventually.

Unless you loathe anything FF7 related (jay, I'm talking about you), I don't see how you could hate this movie. Cout it have been better? Sure, there was room for improvement but that's true for any movie. But I remember seeing Spirits Within in the theatre and being very dissapointed with it. This was head and shoulders better than that mess. It actually felt like a FF to me.

I picked it up and actually enjoyed it, though I haven't got around to finishing it yet. It's a lousy game, but it seems to be just a Vincent side story/sequal for AC to me. I think it's just an excuse for excessive CG cutscenes, which is fine by me, but I wish they would have put a little more effort into the gameplay itself. All they would have to do was make a DMC clone and I'd have been content, but oh well... at least it looks nice.

ALL i have to say is this....FF7:AC isnt the worst animeated show you could have possibly seen...not if you have watched FF: the spirits within..that without a doubt beats the holy hell out of AC for being a worse movie.....

*sigh* I think the overzealous fanboys have ruined a decent movie for everyone again... it's not cool to like it since so many other people do as well now.

see, that's your fault for even watching a dub in the first place. i typically only check out a dub if hear it's good ahead of time. other than that, i'm locked on the original language from the get go.

well one thing i wished for that movie tho.. i wished they all did their final Limit breaks on bahamut except for caith sith... it would have been cool if tifa used her final heaven, yuffy's all creation and especially vincent's devil form like in dirge.. eehehehhe.. bahamut would have been a sinch...

plus more summons!! like the clash of the GF!

one question tho y cloud didn't hurt his leg wen he landed... hmmmmm.... that was way high....
