Three reasons (and this is all just my opinion) :
1) The lead character was a little too brooding, it was hard to sympathise with him as much.
2) Its Darkness worked against it, the game felta little too dark at times to handle.
3) As an overall package it lacked substance, the story was just that little bit weaker than others I had played at that point.
That being said, its still a great game, I have loved almost all the final fantasies I have played. Also, please do not refer to any of the storyline in any discussion you continue on this, I do not wish to ruin the story for anyone who hasn't played it)
