Well, thats it, I lost, game over man, I am done with FF5. The interest just isn't there anymore. I don't care, there is nothing that motivates me to move on any further. The game ended like 3 times, and it should have ended the third time.
I am in the "wind temple" I guess, and I found a boss where there is 4 of him, but I can only hurt one of him, and he switches every turn so it's impossible to find him, and he attacks 4 times in a row and his attack is ALWAYS blaze, which is an all hit attack. I can use all hit attacks, but they fail to do a decent amount of damage to take him down permanently.
So here's my verdict of FF5:
Job system: Fucking genius!
Story: The writers didn't give a fuck and looked up every cliche in a book of cliches and said "yes" to all of them. The characters are bland, one sided and uninteresting.
Music: Uematsu was probably exhausted from working on 4 when they dropped this game on his lap. Nothing gets stuck in my head, nothing is catchy, it's just music. It gets the job done, but jeez is it boring.
When exploring dungeons there are only 2-3 pairs of enemies at a time. For example, this...fucking cave, it doesn't have a name, when you encounter enemies it is ALWAYS either 1 skull muncher, if not that 3 nut crunchers, or 4 bats. There is no mix up, there is no variation, always those groups, and always specifically those enemies, the repetition is so anal that dungeon exploring becomes a chore.
Rewards are few and far between and they all shit rewards. Leveling up takes tons of XP, leveling up your job, takes even more. You can grind and grind but you make progress unless you do it for over an hour. Im at god knows where, the game probably pulls 3 more fake endings out of its ass but im level 37. I have played for, on record 23 hours. In the same amount of time I reached level 60 something in every other FF. Weapons? You dont find those things in chests or anything, or even in the end of dungeons. Just in towns.
Lastly, lack of communication or understanding. If you buy a new weapons you have no idea how much it will raise your stats, you have to actually buy it first. Same with armor. Next, when you buy or use spells, you have no idea what they do. You just don't know a damn thing. It's aggravating.
Job system can't save this game.
I started FF4 to get this bad taste out of my mouth. Fun fact: It's infinitely better already. Hawly sheit that overworld theme and story.
