Has anyone played the PS-Underground Demo??? It's awesome...

You get to pick from 2 different missions to play in, as well as tons of abilities and job classes.

Not sure if anyone has posted this next part, but I want to rant about the battle system:

The battle system flat out rocks, it's Active Time Battle just like older FF's (not turn based like FFX), so you have to think and act fast. Not only is it ATB, but when you choose an action, it happens instantly, no waiting AT ALL, I had Rikku, Paine, and Yuna all attack simultaniously (pardon the spelling), and I'm not talking run, then when one is attacking, then the next runs up, I mean, they all ran up at the same time and did their little thing O_O, so it is REALLY, REALLY active! In fact, it is almost like a real-time fighting game, and it would be to if it weren't for the ATB-Gauge that you have to wait for to get your next turn....

Ahh, speaking of the gauge, the time it takes to fill increases and decreases depending on the abilities that you use, it's very cool! Not to mention you can change classes in the middle of a battle!

All and all, the game looks great, the only thing I don't like, is the lack of new animations, the characters, the enemies, the backgrounds, everything that was in the original FFX is the exact same in FFX-2, including the abilities, weapons, etc...

Cool, does the demo come in an OPM issue or do they send it out by itself through mail? I hope it's by itself so maybe I could get one cause I never really liked those OPM demos.

Sounds very promisng. In response to your complaint about the environments, being its a demo, the environments could change in the final version especially as you'll have more freedom.

The demo came out only a week before the actual game is due out, so it's actually impossible to change it now... And anyway, I know there will be more and new environements. My post actually stated that the animations in FFX were never changed when moved to FFX-2 (along with enemies, weapons, some spells, and the environment)... But I did not exclude the fact that there will be more ~_^

Either way, the game looks awesome!
