I have heard good from some people, and bad from others about the battle system. So if it is bad, yes let's hope it gets better.

I rented the demo, so I only got to play it for about 2 days. Anyway, I am loving the battle system so far. To me, not having random battles is a great thing. Also, it still plays like a FF game IMO. I loved the “Wait Mode,” where everything freezes when the command menu is called up, therefore giving you enough time to choose your next action. I am very happy with the direction the FF battle system has gone to…After playing the demo, I am even more excited about FF12.

I pretty muched loved the demo. I thought the battle system was really fun. I loved that fact that there was no randon battles and you could easily dodge your enemys attack. So far the only FF I'd be glad to fight in.

Well....I thought the battle system was fun....but the system isn't exactly for me. It just seemed so blah. Its sort of like..."oh, Ill just enter in one command for the rest of the demo and ill live" sort of like that....It just seemed to effortless....the bosses were jokes too....I just hope its actually hard...cause the demo was much to easy. But Im sure it will have difficulty.

But the graphics were just visual orgasims. happy.gif The summons were just amazing....I didnt like the two summons that there were because they seemed a lot the same....very fire and brimstone. It would have been nice if they had added something with a little more difference then that. And my hopes of Shiva and Ifrit....and *sniff* Bahamut....are fading....

Then there is the music....very pleasent....I didnt expect all of the music to just blend right in though battles...it was very nice.

Overall...the demo was good enough for the time. Im sure the final copy will kill us though....it has been a long 3 years...since we have gotten a new story thats worth the time.

That's exactly what I think.

I hope that with time, the battle system will start to grow on me, and I will like it more.

I think they felt that it would be too early to release a demo for NA but at the same time felt the necessity to give DQ a boost in NA so they just released an extremely limited demo. However, I still thought the demo was incredibly beautiful. I'm not sure how but it definitely feels like an FF to me. The only thing that bothered me was the fact that they changed the menu sound effects. I loved the typical FF menu effects.

I think renting DQ8 is probably the best way to get a hold of the demo. Like others have already mentioned, the demo is very short. There are two stages and each stage can be finished in about 15 minutes.
I rented DQ8 at Premiere Video with the FFXII demo included. My local Take 2 also included the FFXII demo in the rental. I do not know If Blockbuster will include the demo...I think the best thing is to ask first before renting.

Unfourtanetly blockbuster didn't include the demo with DQVIII(grr), so i ended up having to buy DQVIII then trading it back in at EB games the next day(got $30 back).

I've only played thirty seconds of the second half of the demo (most of it was spent waching Ashe from behind as she walked around), and that 30seconds was enough to put the demo on my "top games of 2005" list! I cant wait for it to release in Australia.
