Each of the titles in this trilogy has its perks and differences. The case with Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII could not be any more apparent, as it truly strays away from its roots of the entire catalog of any game with the name Final Fantasy. Is this a bad thing? Certainly not, as Lightning Returns is a very engaging and deep title that has replay value. The game is much faster paced, as the overall experience keeps players on their toes at all times.
