Nearly four years after the last major title in the Final Fantasy series, and the first on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, we finally get a chance to play entry number XIII. As a fan of the series, it was hard to take a lot of the early news and impressions from interviews and Japanese players late last year. The combat system in XII was a big change in the wrong direction for me personally, and it seemed like things were getting worse in XIII. This was certainly a case of having to play for yourself before forming an opinion. A lesson I learned a long time ago."
