Final Fantasy XIII

 

Final Fantasy. The RPG series known to millions of gamers worldwide for its long-standing legacy of intricate characters, exceptional storytelling, engaging battle systems and spectacular visuals. Veterans, casual players and many others that do not...

Final Fantasy XIII is an epic game that plays to its strengths by taking risks. It abandons the all-too-predictable towns, forgettable NPCs and typical combat systems seen in far too many RPG titles today. Still taking its flaws into consideration,...

Final Fantasy XIII- PS3

 

There are so many pieces to any well written story, usually with many different fragments of characters that end up colliding, making the incomplete tale whole. It's Day 13 and you're not sure what kind of stage is being laid out in front of you, just...

Traversing through Cocoon was a wonderful experience; I stayed immersed, so in my book Square Enix has done its job. This was really close to being my first five-star review, but issues mentioned above had a lot to do with its score. It lacks a few...

Final Fantasy XIII

 

The wait is finally over. Final Fantasy. When most people think of it they think of spiky haired protagonists, airships, characters named Cid, evil villains trying to take over the...

Beautiful game ; Fun, challenging gameplay ; Interesting story

Story takes a while to get going ; Later battles become frustrating ; Learn more from datalog than cutscenes

Final Fantasy XIII Review

 

See what happens when a JRPG slices out all the small stuff.

Deep story development, beautiful in-game and cutscene graphics, and fun/powerful battle system

A bit too handhold-y, way too linear, and it feels like it takes forever to "start" the game

While I could harp on and on about Final Fantasy XIII's linearity and its simplistic character customization system, there's something about its enchanting environments and fast-paced battle system that make playing it feel like poetry in motion. Even...

Final Fantasy XIII

 

Final Fantasy XIII is possibly the most anticipated game in the entire celebrated series, so it should come as little surprise that, while it is a great and entertaining game, it just isn't as good as all the hype made it out to be. Honestly though, it...

Story is intriguing; Graphics are impressive; Soundtrack and voice work are great; Battles are epic affairs; Characters are great

Vanille is annoying; combat system sometimes feels like it is playing itself

Review: Final Fantasy XIII (Sony PS3)

 

Controls in this game are very responsive and I didn't have any problems with lag at all. The left stick controls movement, the right stick controls camera direction. Face buttons control your interactions with things and people, as well as getting...

Final Fantasy XIII continues the tradition of a really well polished and fantastic looking game, there are some issues with the story and the way the game is formed overall that really make it not as much of a fantastic game to play. I found it very...

Final Fight

 

Controversial though they may be, Final Fantasy XIII has made some sweeping changes to Square Enix's classic franchise, and the results are nothing short of spectacular.

There are a million examples I could paste in here that I took while playing (the word count on the simple descriptions alone is almost 500 words), but I honestly don't want to spoil them for you. Every rock, every pebble, every cup or crate or plant...

Final Fantasy XIII - PlayStation 3

 

Join the Fight for Cocoon

A shame that I decided to play Resonance of Fate before this, everyone now tells me I'll have a lot of trouble liking it, so much the battle system in FF13 pales in comparism to RoF

Final Fantasy XIII

 

Say what you will about Final Fantasy, but this is one franchise that has never been afraid to make drastic changes. After years in development, Final Fantasy XIII is finally here but not everybody is going to like the new direction for this venerable...

There's not much middle ground for Final Fantasy XIII, either you'll appreciate what it's trying to do or you won't. Thankfully I had a great time with these characters and enjoyed most of the changes made to the game. However, there were plenty of...
