Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII Review Gameluster

"I like what they have done with the new UI system and batteling system. I like the fact that we can now add our own special twist to lightning’s attire. Downfalls for me are the time aspect as I did not feel like I could stop and enjoy the game and what was going on around me. This is still a true RPG Final Fantasy Game and I will certainly be buying the next installment into this franchise but for reasons as I have mentioned throughout the review my score is based off the background graphic’s,Guiding system and the time aspect which rushed me through this."

A positive review so far.

I don't know why you got disagrees for pointing out the positive scores. Most of this game's reviews have been mixed to positive. It even got a 37/40 in Famitsu.

Personally, I'm on the fence about this game. I liked some of the things they implemented but extremely disliked others. But I'm not going to run around and troll every positive article about it.

There is just some people who like to disagree with everything. From What I have seen, you either really enjoy Final Fantasy or you dont

Yeah it's true that this is a "positive" review ...

Famitsu is not the same as it used to be way years ago, Famitsu is a joke that even sell reviews!

I don't believe any reviews know a days, I can read reviews and see what the reviewer think about games and what he/she discuss about the gameplay / music / sound / graphis / story and so on but that's it, the points on the reviews are most of the time pay or biased...

In my book, FF 13-2 was ok compared to 13 and lighting's return, those were close to garbage in my book!

A lot of people are hoping the game gets the review score it deserves so that SE can get the message.

That's because haters will hate & disagree because they're just miserable.

Godmars2901765d ago

Because at this point there are two types of "fans" of the series: one who are too enthusiastic and forgiving, who's general cry has been for all the "haters" to just shut up, and the others said haters who were done with the storyline with the first FF13. Since its suppose to be a role playing game but failed with its story, that only leaves it as game so if haters have any interest in it, its going to after its hit the bargain bin.

If its true that the game is based on multiple replays and its only worth 7/10 in that regard, that's going to be further deal breaker.

Also Famutsu's reviews were crap well whatever score they gave this. Likewise this article is poorly written. Has too many "were" instead of "we're" and "there" instead of "their" for my taste.

I can either keep playing Tales of Vesperia or, put it on the back burner for when Lighting comes in the mail.

KonsoruMasuta1765d ago (Edited 1765d ago )

Keep playing Tales of Vesperia.

I'm not saying LR is bad. It's far from that. Tales of Vesperia is just better.

LAWSON721765d ago

If it is as good as Tales of Xillia dont quit playing. I am enjoying it almost as much as Ni No Kuni.

I'm sure I'll love this game, and I'm sure it will get some average reviews. The art and the battle system both look great.
