Critical Gamer: Final Fantasy XIII: Review

Critical Gamer writes: If you're not a patient person, you may as well write off Final Fantasy XIII right now. Square's latest is an unfinished experiment, and the players are the unwitting guinea pigs. The game begins at a constipated pace, finally passing its first nugget of entertainment at about a dozen hours in. Those willing to subject themselves to such abuse will find pockets of brilliance in a product brimming with half-baked ideas.

A very controversial and harsh review, I agree with alot of the review. Square Enix seems to have drop the ball on FF 13

It's good review but too negative in my opinion. I'm sticking with my 6/10.

Actually, I felt the first 20 hours to be MOSTLY 4/10. When I reached out onto the field and found a lot of monsters that I couldn't beat. It changed to a 8/10 instantly. I find myself happy with the result.

I agree with a lot of the things said in the review, but for me the battle system, eye candy and set piece moments elevated it to around a 6 or 7.

i disagree .. you can not dumb down ff quality to 4/10 just because you don't like some changes ...ff13 is a sloid rpg whatever you can think about it being a good ff game .. it's still a good rpg ...

I'd say 5 to 7 out of 10 really...

this game is easily one of the best in the series. Story is great, characters are great, battle system is great. I can understand not being into the first half, but I think the story, cut-scenes and character development really carry that part.

easily a 9/10
