PS3 Attitude: "Rest assured, Final Fantasy XIII is not a bad game and it is certainly not the worst in the series. "
i love the game, one of my fav ff's. hey i hate 12 and 9 and others love those so its all opinion :)
I hate FF9 & FF12 as well. they were both pretty boring in terms of story, battle system & character design. hmm, thats pretty much the entire game that I hate... lol! FF7/10 were the best and most memorable to me... but this one(FF13) is starting to get better now that I'm passed the 10hrs. mark. I tell ya, the graphics in this game is amazing! and every chick in this game is ridiculously hot;) I just wish we were able to change the character's names, that always made me feel more involved.
Have not gotten it yet but will get it soon, big fan of there CG cutsenes, it seems like it has a good story and great graphics.
i have just to say ... don't dare you tell me the game suck if you haven't reached gran pulse .when you can get cieth missions. This is all . If not you haven't seen what the game has to offer
heh, I agree. It sounds dramatic, but it's exactly how I felt.
dont care about reviews....this game is great....presentation in audio and video is some of the best I have seen..RPGs are not my fav. genre so this game keeps me focused on the story and battle..to me thats what I so like
this game is great story is good cg cutscenes are entertaining to watch im currently on the end of chapter 12 and damn the boss is hard
Rasch Part 2? I thought it was pretty easy. You just need to have paradigms that are spread out... one person attacks while one heals and one synergizes... and then other combo’s like that. It does suck that everytime you Break him, he hits you with a huge attack when he’s done.
The story is interesting. The way the story is told is Awful. Absolutely awful. It has Final Fantasy VIII syndrome. It could have been epic. Instead it is a series of made up words strung together with random words thrown inbetween. L'cie, Fal'cie, L'cie, L'cie, L'cie, "Lets Run Away", Fal'cie, Hero, L'cie, Fal'cie, Hero, Hope, Hope, L'cie, "Lets Run Away" Fal'cie Arc. - The entire story to chapter 11 I just reached chapter 11. I really hope it is as everyone says "The begining of the game's redemption" I love the battle system though. It reminds me a little of Chrono Cross, one of my all time favorite JRPGs.
It's different but not terrible. Squeenix is in a bit of a pickle: the core ideology of Final Fantasy is to start new with every game, and people so far have been quick to forget that. This game - like every Final Fantasy before it - should be judged on its own and not against other games of the franchise. It's an FF for crying outloud; the whole idea of being FINAL Fantasy is that each story can only be told within one game and is going to be different than the others. Now, Squeenix did bend that rule with X-2 and with the VII expansions/prequels, but with XIII they did something different and took a whole design element (Advent Children's fast paced action) and tried to work it into an actual FF's battle system mechanic. They also decided to go X-2 again and put a female lead, as well as keeping the general feel of X and X-2's world and styling. The result is as far from a traditional FF as Squeenix has ever tried to achieve; now it's more drama but less traditional FF. If there were any logic to it at all this game would be called Dramatic J-Pop Fantasy...which is what it's supposed to be anyway as that's what those of us who are j-pop fans want in the first place! Squeenix is just rolling with the demands of the modern j-pop fanbase, no beef there.
some of the bosses are really challenging. Definitely one of the things I liked the most about the game.
i really liked this game, it was fun and a lil different. But im not sure if i will ever playthrough it again. Well i can't see it for the near future anyways. Other FF games always brought me back to it somewhere down the line, but with this one i don't see it happening. Perhaps its because all of the other great games hitting ps3 and other systems, not sure.
So far this has been the only Final Fantasy game I was able to put down in my spare time. The story is, for the most part, absent throughout most of the game, and the only actual nice thing about it, is it's combat. I also think it might be more linear than Final Fantasy X, which brings me to another point. Does this FF actually do anything different from the others? It seems every FF game did something new and refreshing. This one is just a mix between X and X-2 (which was just silly, imo), except it's a little watered down. The crystarium is the exact same thing as the sphere grid, except with less things to do, and the entire status of your characters consists of: Strength Magic Every person who has played this game with me has been sorely disappointed. Still, I'm going to complete it, since I bought the damn thing for $59.99, but unfortunately, it might be the first FF I ever return. I mean, damn. Final Fantasy 1 and 2 had more gameplay and features than this.
That's unfortunate. It's sadly not a game for everyone. What's even worse is that the strongest divide in opinions is from actual fans of the series. It takes away a lot of what people specifically loved. ;(
I love the FF franchise. I own 1, 2, 7-13, and 13 so far, has been the worst of them all. For more than half the game, all you're doing is hearing the issues of each character, instead of actually following the story. Honestly, it's not a bad game. It's an enjoyable experience. It is not however, a good Final Fantasy game. There's nothing to it, and my friend actually gave it the "My first RPG", because of how basic it was.
but at least i know what to expect next time should i replay through this game that it will be alot easier knowing the battle system and to save up on cp points even if u couldnt use the rest of it since u fully upgraded to the max possible
I don't know if I was the only one who caught this but giving away the fact that one of the main antagonists dies randomly is kind of spoiler territory?
Final Fantasy versus XIII will have towns, world map and a airship(confirmed) everything XIII is lacking and more plus the main character can use more than just swords( eg. lances, axes, guns etc.) I've beat Final Fantasy XIII, IT IS THE WORST FINAL FANTASY(main series) but still a good game
