What do these ratings mean?

All I have to say is WOW! I was happy to see a new battle system, much like Final Fantasy Tactics, where you can actually see what monsters your running into instead of the old style of walking around, and getting into battles when you really didn't want to. FFXII also adds onto the FFX sphere grid, with the License Board. Although very confusing, it's pretty cool to be able to pick what your people are going to learn. However I am sad to say that FFXII also takes somthing from FFX, and thats the graphics. Even though Final Fantasy graphics have always been the best, I was hoping to see much better graphics since Square Enix had about 3ish years to work on the game. And Finally! Theres a better than awesome storyline. After Final Fantasy 7, nothing came as close to have a awesome storyline that FF7. FF8's was pointless, 9's was obvious, 10's was ok but alot of it was abvious to, and do I even have to go through the torture of mentioning FFX-2's storyline. I give Final Fantasy 12's storyline a BIG 10! Finaly Fantasy 12 also brings a new feature of Hunts, and nearly free exploration. You can be kept buisy for hours just explore the enormous maps, and super hard hunts. One thing that concerns me in the game is the fact that you get barely any money, and there is to many things to learn, and buy. You need to get Magicks, Tecknicks, Items, Accesories, Armor, and Weapons for 6 characters. I also love the new feature of haveing Guests in your party. Even though they don't follow your orders, they can be very useful as distractions, healers, or an extra sword. Another new feature is the Mist system whcih is half cool. It consists of Summons, and Quickenings. The summons rule, but the quickenings are impossible to understand, and a waste of MP. With a game as great as this, of course there will be flaws. In my final note I'd have to say that this game is worth the $50 off of your PS3 saving. I still miss the Old Blitzball, and the Tetra Master Card Game.
