This preview is that of my own thoughts and impressions of the game and not hampered by other site/forums/news articles. This is a gamer's true honest FF13 Preview.

General and Story
While I don't speak Japanese or understand it, the story in the game is great, you really get a feeling of what's going in the game by how well the cut scenes are presented and how well animated each characters facial expressions are. Having a quick read online with many translated dialogue of the game lets you get the idea of what's going on, voices are clear and crisp and the sync of voices to characters are on a level even Hollywood would have to sit back and take a long look at themselves, it is simply that stunning. The game puts you into the roll of playing many characters, all folding together neatly as the story comes together and you are playing each character just long enough before you start with another to keep the game and story rolling, it's so well done.
