The most important fact is that it's a part of the FF13 story and that is why I will not buy.

Godmars2902040d ago

Well said. Liking what I've seen of the game mechanics, but the fact that the story is incomplete and connected to tow other games I could care less about, makes me want to wait until this one is under $20.

waiting sucks

For the future of smartphones , thanks to XIII saga for ruining my gaming life >.>

Why does SquareEnix feel like they have to re-invent the wheel? This whole entire gen all we've seen were bunch of screwed up final fantasy games from SE. Fans ask for the classic RPG style games, what does SE do? they do the opposite. Instead of giving us open world exploration like past Final fantasy game, they give us a damn linear tube. Fans never asked for FF13 sequels, SE give us two sequels. Why? Thank god they are releasing the FFX HD which give us fan a sense that SE is returning to normalcy. But we all know SE needs to earn back our trust.

well said my friend! i hope no one will buy this game so they can sink even more and they will finally start caring about delivering quality

I am a fan and I asked for sequels, 13 is not the worst of all the FF's but its not the best either.

I don't understand how you can go on about the 13 being to damn linear and no exploration, then you praise 10 which is also linear with no exploration. Those 2 titles are the most linear and no exploration of all the FFs.

kayoss2039d ago

I never once said FFX was not linear. It maybe linear but it was a great game when compared to FF13. It was fun to play and the story was great. It made the player want to complete the game for the story. FF13 the story got to the point where i didnt care any more. i just wanted to complete the game so I feel that i got my money's worth. Even if the FFX was linear it was not as bad as FF13. The only exploration done in FF13 is the Great plains. But the only reason why the great plains exist is for farming and Leveling up.

X was good because of the story, and the gameplay. I think what kayoss is saying is that a linear story isn't bad in terms of story, and in terms of battle sequence. I've said this time and time again but when you play 13 for the first time all I did was button mash and didn't even pay attention to the game. The worst feature about battle.... excuse me for screaming IS THE FUCKING AUTO BATTLE! That was one of the worst features in a FF title. What is the point in that?

I pick X over 13 any day of the week, because they were all characters that I relate to. The battle system was simple yet complex. The graphics (for their time) were through the roof. And lets not forget Blitzball. That game was sick. What was the minigame in FF13? I didn't see one. I'm playing 7 all over again, there are minigames all over that game, and the exploration surpasses anything Square Enix has done since early PS titles.

I'm all for sequels if it doesn't regurgitate the same story, which is why I'll watch a few cutscenes on youtube, without buying that game.

"Fans never asked for FF13 sequels"

Well, Japanese fans did.

Godmars2902039d ago

No. No they didn't. They were returning their copies of FF13 the first week it was out. And FF13-2 sold as worse there as in the States.

chadwarden2040d ago (Edited 2040d ago )

Fact is that Lightning is the best character in all of video game history.

Alos882039d ago

She's supposed to be tough but kind, except we never really see the kind part. Even if Lightning Returns does manage to flesh out her character, it really says something that it took three whole games to do it.

FRA852039d ago

think your exaggerating a bit but never understood why people hate the character so much, i liked her better than the other main characters and even the main character of FF10.

Hicken2039d ago

People got their own expectations up about a game that never claimed to be anything it didn't turn out to be, and since Lightning is the main character, she gets the brunt of the blame.

It's one of those games people love to hate. And the worst part is: they hate it because of their OWN problems, not so much the problems IN the game. I mean, I can say it's not the best FF, but this is one game that's suffered more from its hype than any other. It's not NEARLY as bad as people say.

goldwyncq2039d ago

Just be thankful that this would be the last Lightning game. Like it or not, this game will still release, no matter how much you bitch about it.
