But going into Final Fantasy XIII I was nervous. First there was the ridiculously delayed release, then the talk of the game being very linear, and, finally, the harsh reviews that never, ever go hand-in-hand with a Final Fantasy game (including the now infamous one by our very own Jim Sterling). When I picked up the game the day it was released I truly thought this may be the first Final Fantasy game that could quite possibly disappoint me."
