What I like about this game, is how well you are explained to playing during tutorial (now who needs a boring instructions manual to read), you get hands-training from start, but it is really up to you if you want to skip it. For me, I was for it, and you can see it on my video below.
There are lots of functions for Cid such as running, climbing, stealth walking, fighting, and much more. He's not just crashing inside cars anymore :D ... I really do find the voice of the profesor very funny hahaha :r and If you follow the story, I am sure you will like it as well.
