I've got it preordered, just need to pick up my copy after classes today. I didn't like XIII that much, but this supposedly fixes all the stuff I didn't like about it. Just crossing my fingers we don't get another X-2, ugh.
I'm playing xiii at the moment, only about 10 hours in so far. I'll probably pick this up if I clear the first one. There's a few things I'm not crazy about in XIII so I'll have to have a good read into what they're doing with the new one. The battle system is a bit annoying for normal battles and at times it's more like watching a movie where you walk between scenes than playing a game.
I think 12 is one of the best games in the series. In my opinion, the best FFs are: 6, 7, 10, and 12. The worst FF in the series is 8. I can't explain how much I loathe 8. Tactics is a decent game, but I'd hardly call it a peak of the series. It's not even a Final Fantasy really. It's just a rip off of Shining Force. Of course, Shining Force was on Megadrive/Genesis and Game Gear, so it just died off, but Tactics turned into a sub-series of its own.
I have to back Naren on 12 here. At first I hated 12. It was a break from tradition with the battle system, and at first I was like "Great, a spoiled princess is going to join the hero and his plucky sort of girlfriend. Right." But then, the story got interesting... there was political intrigue, character development, unexpected twists, and the gambits are awesome if you find out how to exploit them.
