Eurogamer.it: The premise is as dutiful as explicit: this article does not claim to be a complete and definitive verdict about one of the most anticipated titles of the year, but a hands-on on the first hours of gameplay of Final Fantasy XIII.
The author's hating on FFXIII really hard and this it's just a preview... =0
well I see completely natural his reaction the guy thought that this game was FF and RPG until he played and say "WTF?" as I read in a review from the JPN version of the game 40% of the whole game is FMV/cut scenes, the rest 40% is battles.. how is this an FF & an RPG? no exploration no world map no chat with NPC's no towns no shops the summons is fewer than any other time and most of them is ugly mecha OK the game have the best graphic & FMV on the PS3 so what? They think that this is enough to make an FF? the series going downhill after FFX when they start to make real time battles and change everything to look like an MMORPG, my once favorite series is doomed.. btw FFXIII make the lower sales of the series the past 14 years in JPN and I have read that thousands of ppl play it once and after that resell it for the 1/3 of it's real price, what else to say...
