Couldn't agree more. The PS3 version looks better graphically, FYI.

And why should anyone really carer when the differences are so small?

JLesinski2326d ago

I'm sorry are you a gamer or a troll? Any difference that is an improvement is important.

It's only a minor improvement, but it is noticeable. I mainly got the PS3 version out of fear that it would be multiple discs again.

Like the article mentioned, leveling up is completely free and to your own discretion. I've only just passed half way through (I think, there still seems to be more unvisited locations than visited ones) and there are no more abilities for them to learn in any of their roles. I was making damn sure that future battles weren't too annoying, but it looks like I made TOO damn sure lol (still getting my a$$ kicked by Tonberries and Purple Chocobos though).

The problem is that while you may have all of your abilities, you might not have increased the right stats. Mine are all pretty high and I have yet to run into either of those. Maybe I'm just a min/max guy by default, though.

On reflection though, I haven't tried too many ways of taking them on yet (didn't even use a Saboteur at the time). The only reason I met up on them was because I was completing the Silver Petal sidequest.

Oh, and now I know the "terrible rock remix of Crazy Chocobo" that everyone was complaining about. I concur, it's not a classic, let's leave it at that.

Game is fantastic. It really is one of my favorite ff's ever so far (only 8 hrs in maybe). I love the qte's they make it feel much more epic. If 13 was about going forward with no distractions this is all about freedom and going at your own pace. I liked 13 also but it was lacking variety that 13-2 has. 13-2 is everything people missed and then some.

I briefly mention the problems I had with XIII, something I may expand on in a different article on pacing and linearity. Both have their points, but ultimately, XIII was an unfinished game that they tried to make as complete as possible within the timeframe.
