GAME - Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII - Review

Final Fantasy XIII had a lengthy run. Lightning is about to partake on her third adventure, with an additional appearance in Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, and what was once Final Fantasy Versus XIII is now known as Final Fantasy XV.

The story is too old to be commented.

This review sounds more like a review of the demo.

Is the review embargo still on? Less than 3 days remaining and no reviews at metacritic.

In the US embargo is still in effect. I know that some GAME stores in the UK were selling the game early, so this might be it.

I kind of want to get this but I dont think I will have the cash at launch.

I had no idea Famitsu actually gave this a 37/40. I would rather take that score than any reviewer from a big US, EU site that seem to not usually care for most JRPGs unless they are on a handheld platform. Either way I kind of do want to see some more reviews though

Famitsu gives every game a high score. They don't even write reviews with text, just three sentences of taglines and propaganda. They're sales pitches. That's why no one in Japan takes the magazine seriously.

If Japanese don't care about Famitsu...why should anyone else?

Edit:

Follow the links to the original article and Japanese comments about the article. JP gamers agree that Famitsu reviews are useless.

Thanks for the info, it is always nice to be educated. Will remember that in the future I will take their reviews with a grain of salt just like I do IGN reviews.

best part of this review is how it explains that CLASSIC rpg fans opinion will differ from an action fans opinion. VERY true
