"Seems Square Enix has been lying to us. Remember the exciting battle footage from E3 2006? It's all false. In the long-awaited JPRG's final guise there are no sleek real-time menus, no mini-maps and no MP.
Oh, and as a dollop of amnesia's on the cards you can forget about stylish attack-linking acrobatics too: in between their moves Lightning and her band of misfits need to stand around and wait for their Active Time Battle gauges to fill just the same as all the heroes that have gone before them."
