It’s time to play the action movie.  This time we’re following monsters to find Squall, fighting other monsters in jail, suffering exploration monotony, beating a man for his Battle Meter upgrade, improving Squall’s humanity, concocting a ridiculous escape plan, heroically saving Zell, falling down stairs, splitting up to escape, realizing we’re in a desert prison, not falling to our death, and splitting up to outrun missiles. Irvine’s sin is unforgivable.
