Destructoid: "If you didn't enjoy Final Fantasy XIII, I am by no means telling you that you are wrong, wrong, wrong and should sit there and think about all the ways in which you are wrong. For the most part, I can still see where some people's problems with the game are coming from.
The big question with Final Fantasy XIII is this: are you willing to put in a few hours of playtime before you see the fruits of your labour? If not, I don't blame you. But if so, then you're in for a pleasant surprise."
