NowGamer gets hands on the latest Final Fantasy to see just how much the game has been improved...
They just did a 180. First they said, "making townz in HD takes too long". Then 2 years later they just showed something they claim will take very long to do. So, how can making townz in HD take a very long time if you did it in 2 years?! Unless, It Was The Stuff They Cut Out From FFXIII and Are Repackaging It As A New Game.
Love how the author repeatedly complains about fanboys who complained that XIII was linear, then compliments this one for having side-areas. If XIII had had side-areas, even if they were only corridors, people wouldn't have complained in the first place!
we don't have to enter a separate battle screen for every fight. Its one of the reasons I hated FFXIII. I tolerated it in previous titles because having it realtime wasn't done before, but after FF12 I don't see why they don't go with realtime battles in the environment using the paradigm thing. EDIT: More corridors??? Making 3-4 corridorts instead of one isn't really a change. I'd rther have large expansive environments that players traverse through like in FF12. See, this is why FF games are failing, they aren't going all out any more, always holding back like they still have no competition. Skyrim, and Dark Souls will blow this out of the water. Hopefully FFVXIII will be open world.
Dude, go play a final fantasy first. Thats how they are, they are not wide open, they just have multiple paths, corridors.
Final Fantasy 12 then come back to me....
FFXII while it was more open than your regular FF, its still not open world or free roam. FFX had the right formula.
I don't care about this game! Where's Versus13 at!?
And they manage to do this while keeping it a multiplat title. Amazing that they will be able to fit this game on 3 DVDs. But then again they could have a lot less CGI in this one.
I read as far as "We’re big fans of the combat system of Final Fantasy XIII and so should you be, so let it be known that combat, for the most part, remains unchanged." That killed it for me right there. I have been a fan of the FF series since I first played FFII on SNES, but I do not like the battle system in XIII. If they keep the battle system the same then square will not be getting my money this time.
this looks worst then ffx ffx-2 im still going to download it for free 360 for none online games will i play it for more then 5 hours that a diff story
cant wait need some RPG's in my gaming life lol the Haters wont change my decision love the 1st one and cant wait for the next
