Battle Gameplay Score: 7.5/10

-.-

after all hype 4 years for this game ..

i expected more of this game.

GrandDragon2339d ago

I always thought the Battle Game play was the BEST aspect to this game

They never spent 4 years just on the battle mechanism, don't twist things.

SasanovaS19872339d ago

and here i thought the story was lacking, and not gameplay...so many inconsistent reviews...

O.o This is getting rediculous. The only negative I've EVER heard about this games gameplay was that, in the beginning, it's too easy and all you have to do is mash attack repeatedly. I've seen this game in motion an watched for hooooours. I watched people grind to get CP for hours and not once did I think of the battle system anything less than perfect.

It's strategic, yet fun, fast-pasted and visually pleasing. What more could you want?

A Cupcake for Gabe2338d ago

FFXIII should be in the book of world records as the game with the most inconsistent reviews. I'm getting it still, but WTF is going on?

ThanatosDMC2338d ago

Yup, that cements my decision. I'm really not buying this game. SO4 and Yakuza will be my fix.

rockleex2338d ago

They JUST COULDN'T give it the extra .2 to make it a 90?

LAME. -_-"

Danteh2338d ago

Thanatos, not to be a jerk, but you WILL get this game ;). Almost all the ppl who say that (MW2 boicot, etc) are the firt ones in line, so have fun with FFXII like the rest of us!

I'm pretty sure they spent more hours on the graphics part, trying to make the game more beautiful (style over substance). And then there's also the different engine the 360 uses for the game. So technically it's not really 4 years

Drakes_Fortune2339d ago

Its almost unanimous that is the best battle system in the franchise.

Son_Lee2339d ago

Well, some people may think the battle system is too fast or overwhelming. But a 9.8 for story? That's what I wanna hear!

Gambit072339d ago

I kept hearing the story wasn't too good, but who knows...
