TeamXbox: Final Fantasy XIII Review

TeamXbox writes: "In a recent interview with, Final Fantasy XIII producer Yoshinori Kitase brazenly declared that Square Enix's latest high-profile, role-playing release shouldn't actually be classified as an RPG.

You know what's sad? He was right.

Good role-playing games offer choices, engrossing worlds and the opportunity to figure out the best way to trounce your opponents on the battlefield. Final Fantasy XIII offers none of those things. It treats players like students taking a college exam-there's only one right answer. And if you even dare to question authority…well, get used to academic probation in the form of the "Game Over" screen."

Decent review, i'm hugely disappointed in this game.

Luckily, I have the better scored PS3 version.

Hopefully, SE learnt its lesson and focus on the PS3 instead, since the 360 audience doesn't even appreciate Final Fantasy. Seriously, SE, next time, don't even waste time on a 360 version.

Better rated huh? Metacritic is showing me an 83 for both versions. Interesting that you think that though.

Edit: Oh your name says it all.

Metacritic does not change the fact that the PS3 is the better version, no matter how biased the media may be.

So you're playing the better version of a crap game. So what?

TotalPS3Fanboy3195d ago (Edited 3195d ago )

The game is NOT that bad. It's only the 360 version that's bad.

But even on the 360, this game isn't that bad. It deserve a 7. But with TeamXbox's score, it's like, a f*ck you to SE. I don't even know why SE even bother bringing out a 360 version, if that's the kind of treatment SE's gonna get from 360. I guess it's time for SE to start focusing on the PS3 again.

Fan boy, your named explains it all, you're an idiot to think 360 doesn't even appreciate it...FF is now for 360 okay? It's no longer an exlusive okay? FF didn't start on Sony, okay?!
