Anticipation in Japan for title is perceived by many as one of the main reasons that Xbox 360 sales have increased five-fold recently. It was evident how much Microsoft were trying to show off the title to Japanese gamers as alongside Star Ocean, it filled up a huge portion of Microsoft's gaming area. I was eager to get my hands on it after watching the trailer at the Microsoft keynote yesterday and managed to get 15 minutes with the game.
The opening cut-scene looked as fantastic as most of Square Enix's cut scenes are and I was soon thrust into open world gameplay. The terrain was an uninspiring rock and grass canyon and I headed for a horse-like beast in the distance. I pulled the right trigger to enter combat mode and began to work out the controls."
