Lightning Returns, and So Does Final Fantasy's Sense of Grand Adventure | 1UP

1UP: "Despite Lightning's top billing, the real star of this FFXIII sequel may be its world." (Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, PS3, Xbox 360)

"the real star of this FFXIII sequel may be its world"

Well, based on the trailer which was set in a really dull artificial looking town, I'd have to disagree.

Can this game come out and flop already so we can look forward to a Wada free next generation?

So not only is the main character bland and unappealing, but now so is the world and environments... WTF Squenix!?

youre being a hater because this looks pretty original the way i see it.

I could care less about FF13 or 13-2 this seems the FF13 that actually looks worth a buy.

Im honestly not hating, stating a negative opinion doesn't automatically make me a "hater" Im just giving my honest "opinion" here, no harm in that right?

Anyway to each their own and I hope it matches your expectations

I enjoyed FF13. I was skeptical about 13-2 but got it anyway and wa severely disappointed. It was one of the worst games ive played this gen and that ending was craptastic. i will not be duped into buying another ff13 game
e-p-ayeaH  +   699d ago
This might be the actual FF13 i might consider buying the gameplay seems pretty good.

I see:
- Good exploration
- fast and challenging battles
- a cool main character and setting

It it flops there´s always versus13.

@disagrees explain at least why?

Because some people can't get over the fact that others are actually hyped up for this game.

My disagree was because I don't agree with the cool main character bit. Also good exploration remains to be seen.. in the footage we've seen, the environments look pretty uninspired and dull environments make for dull exploration.

Man, I hadn't thought of the Valkyrie Profile comparison, it's actually pretty apt.

I beat ff13, I beat ff13-2 (hell I platinumed that game), so yeah I am all in ff13-3. Here is hoping it doesn't suck and restore the glory that was once associated with the FF games.

I pulled myself together to beat FF13 last year (even though I bought it on release) and I surprisingly liked the later third of the game. The missions on Pulse were fun though I forced myself to stop doing them and beat the story. I wanted to start FF13-2 but Steam and some sales and... Yeah lol. Anyways like you I'm all in for 13-3 simply because I just want to see how this saga ends and I actually like Lightning as a character.
cleft5  +   699d ago
Yeah once you get pass a lot of the initially stuff ff13 is good and you do end up with all of your traditional FF side quests. Yeah those Steam sales will catch you up every time, haha.

The sooner this get's released the sooner they can get to work on a FF game people actually want.

This could have been FF 15 or 16....with new characters, new stories and a new world to explore..

Nope.

You not heard? every Final Fantasy game from now on will be a FFXIII sequel due to the FFXIII series being so well received and loved by critics and fans alike!

Really wouldn't surprise me -_-
Square Enix just haven't got a clue anymore.
Can't wait for Ni No Kuni!
