@Robio: After you beat the "Tales" the game says something along the lines that all the items you've found in each chapter, and your character stats will be transferred over to the last chapter. I'm pretty sure that these "tales" are optional, but it sounds like everybody will be together in the final section.

@Objection: Again, it's not that bad of a price for a new game (compared to what is being charged for a re-emulated SNES game on the DS). It's expensive compared to most WiiWare games, but of the WiiWare games I've downloaded so far, none of them have given me 30+ hours of game play either, which it appears is what you'll have if you get the two main games plus all the "tales" (and the bonus dungeon at the end of each tale).

I seem to notice that the only people complaining about the price are those who aren't that interested in the game anyway. I think it's a fair price (cheaper than buying an emulation of FFIV on the DS with no new content). I've played through the first part of the main quest, and the Rydia quest, and I'm having an old-school blast. Plus the "challenge dungeon" at the end of each chapter is a fun add-on. Also, has anybody else beaten the any of the chapters yet? The credits are like 45min long. Did every single person in Japan help develop this game? :-P

@kbdlock: I've had those problems too. I don't think it's a problem with the emulation, just poor programming. The controls lag just a little, but you are frantically pushing buttons to attack before the enemy. I've ended up attacking my own party a couple of times, and outside of battle I've skipped a few blocks of text due to strange pauses between texts.

So far the game seems pretty good. It'll be worth $37 if it's as long (or longer) than the original. Couple of hours in, and all the dungeons are new and though the monsters are the same they use new attack patterns and the combat system is better.

@earl_wickrue: Problem with FF X-2 was all the maps were the same as in FFX... and you had to do the same maps over and over again to unlock everything. The new combat system was alright (and the humor was good), but the game was a straight rehash of FFX.

I could never get into this game either. I bought it when it first came out, and I don't think I was ever able to finish it. The story bored me (ruining the RPG element), and the slow combat and poor AI was not that exciting (ruining the action element). I always wanted to like this game (tried every couple years to play it again), but I could never stick it out... and I loved the GB version!

This is one of the few VC games I've purchased, and it was well worth it! It's simple to play, and makes for a great two player game (or fun to pass around at parties). I'd give it 4 stars.
