Man, I remember seeing the commercial to the last PoP and I was like "Holy crap that looks awesome!". Then I played it... and it definitely wasn't what I thought it was going to be. I was hoping more for a game where you can just explore and go anywhere kinda like the FF series, and was totally disappointed with this one. Maybe they will learn from their mistakes.
