First impressions last, and it mattered a lot for Final Fantasy XIII’s first two chapters and their contribution to the mixed impression of the game as a whole.

Well, according to the fanbase, first impressions don't mean a thing...

I've seen a lot of people have recently replayed it to realize they actually liked the game instead of just jumping on board the blind and uninformed hate train. It's a fun game, a bunch of issues and certainly not the best FF title, but still fun to play.

The game's "story" used unconnected plotting to explain away how it had no plot. No way to overcome challenges or develop as characters. There were only the corridor, busy work and self affirmations regarding character development via cut scene.

Wasn't fun for me to play, just tedious.

For me it was tedious, because of boring fights and I don't like rpg in general, but I really liked characters (except for Hope), plot and the world of XIII. I don't get it, why the game got so much hate.

He is wrong because he has his own opinion?

Both stories in FF15 & 13 kind of sucked but both had great gameplay,FF15 OST also sucked but FF13's OST was amazing.

"FF15 OST also sucked"

I can't possibly disagree more.

The OST was the best part of the game.

Lightning Returns is easily far more "bizarrely executed" than the first two games.

I enjoyed FFXIII. Completed it twice. I'd happily play through a third time

Agreed! I've played it 3 times & hoping for a PS4 Pro enhanced remaster.
