Excerpt: If you've played Final Fantasy XIII , you have an opinion of it. And no matter what that opinion may be, there are thousands of people who vehemently disagree with you, to the point where it facilitates the kind of frothing, incoherent fanboy rage that our particular subculture is so well-versed in.
Excerpt: So let's start off with the story. The Story in FFXIII was decent. The concept was good but (without spoiling anything) I felt it was executed poorly. Especially in how it handled the main antagonist.
Excerpt: Few things are as polarizing as numbered Final Fantasy releases. The day, no the minute, a new game is released in the "core" series (any game with a number behind it), it's immediately met by legions of trolls, apologists and whatever else the Internet is able to cough up.
Conclusion: It's funny, because if you think about it, Final Fantasy 13 is just one big metaphor for itself. One of the big themes of the game is change, and how each of the characters react and deal with it.
Summary: tries a variety of new things in the series. Some work great, such as Paradigm and Crystarium, while others miss the mark, such as the linear areas. This is a must have for fans of the series.
Summary: It would be fair to say that " Final Fantasy XIII " is one game that has been eagerly awaited for such a long time and it is an added bonus that the game is now available across numerous platforms.
Conclusion: For my first Final Fantasy adventure, I have to say the experience was engaging and immersive. The complexity of the battle system was a nice challenge to embark on, though due to the level-grinding aspect of this title, didn’t too good of a taste in my mouth.
