Nova Crystallis | Lightning Returns Preview Part III: Bold new ideas, but are they for the best?

With the final entry in the Final Fantasy XIII saga, Square Enix has surprisingly and decidedly broken the tried and true mould set by previous games with that number attached with a strikingly different effort in Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, but is it for the best? (Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, PS3, Xbox 360)

I just want to see this game. I am a fan of ffxiii but ffxiii2 was just a mess.

The crux of my worries for this game: SE use the time limit mechanic to water down the game. In other words, the game gets put together lazily because of a "who's going to stop and stare when the clock is ticking?" sort of thing.

This could effect a lot of aspects of the game, not just the visuals. I just hope they don't cut loads of corners or something. A clock that's always winding down doesn't really give them licence to do that, and I hope they realize it.

But whatever, it's their game. If it really turns out to be crap I just won't buy it. Yeah I'm a fan and I contributed to their success by buying their games, but I didn't make any of them. You can't act too entitled about these kinds of things, and at the end of the day, they're not as serious are some people like to think. I think the only time videogames become serious is if they're considered in a cultural light- what they bring to a culture, be it positive or negative, good or bad.

Can't tell if its a platformer pretending to be an RPG, or an RPG with platformer elements.

@-Gespenst-

I expect the time element will be used as a replay mechanic. That to get to the ending you'll have to play it multiple times.

The Final Fantasy fanbase is damn near unpleasable.

I was pleased with FFIII, FFIV, FFV, FFVI, FFVII, FFVIII, FFIX, FFX, FFX-2 (ya i liked it lol) and FFXII.

The Final Fantasy fanbase is fairly easy to please. As Julie stated, we've been pleased with about 12 Final Fantasy games and spinoffs. But FFXIII soured the experience and the subsequent unwanted sequels poured salt into the wound. To please us, all SE have to do is actually listen.

It has potentical like anything else, however, from what I've seen from their trailer, it's a trainwreck waiting to happen at a technical (a la the frame drops IN the trailer) and whatever other perspective you which to perceive it quite frankly.
