Somewhat standard

Fred, Amazon

  • Summary: The collector's edition for this game is somewhat standard of what you would get usually with collectors edition for games like a small artbook, codes for exclusive content, etc. The price for this though is a bit too ridiculios and expensive if you ask me.

Great until you're near the end...

  • Summary: I bought this game last year but I didn't have time to play it until recently. I read a lot of the long-winded reviews posted by diehard FF nerds and the people who think linearity = bad in almost all cases. I don't find these reviews to be helpful at all because they're not reviewing the game for what it is...but it is true that this game has several good and bad points.

Drifting From Typical FFs

FicktionPhotography, Amazon
14 November 2011
  • Summary: So, we have Lightning, Snow, and other irritably named characters like Hope and Vanilla...ohh, I mean...Vanille, dealing with the hand of fate which interweaves their lives with one another. They go up against an omnipotent force called the fal'Cie and attempt to change their lives for the better without causing ultimate destruction and death.

A Love-Hate Relationship

  • Summary: This was my very first Final Fantasy game. The graphics are extraordinary. Some texturing could have been better, but all in all this game will graphically dazzle you. The story is excellent and very engaging. However, this is the most linear game I've played. For the first 30 hours of gameplay, it was like Square Enix was saying "Here, we drew a line. Follow it." There is nothing but running along a predetermined path, fighting mobs, and watching cutscenes.

FF 13

bestgameralive, Ebay
27 October 2010
  • Summary: I've been a square fanboy since FF7 first came out and I have loved playing the series including the older titles that came out before FF7. FF13 however is a bit of a dissappointment. Pros: Graphics - This game looks incredible, and i do mean incredible. By far the most beautiful and polished game on the ps3 to date. Square defenitely put alot of their effort into making the game look as good as they could and it shows.

A change to Many? Annoying Characters?

jastucson, Ebay
17 August 2010
  • Summary: I am an avid FF fan, playing from FF3 (even have the origins) till X-2. This current FF was much anticipated and the first few hours were really enjoyable. However, The new combat system was something that really started to drive me nuts. There started to become to many changes per battle and the amount of customization between character paths and weapons and components never quite got my full attention.

This may put the "Final" in Final Fantasy...

K. Kitts, Amazon
17 April 2010
  • Summary: Disclaimer: I'm not done playing yet, I'm in Chapter 12 of 13. Sony and Squenix people, pay CLOSE attention. This is a poorly told, cobbled-together piece of junk story wrapped around a game. I gave it 3 stars just like I gave Dante's Inferno 3 stars, because the graphics, sound, and the voice work make a 1-star game into a 3-star game. The gameplay sucks.

Ouch

Sam Roark "Sam", Amazon
14 April 2010
  • Summary: I've been a fan of the Final Fantasy games for a long time. Even the games that didn't go over with fans so well I usually enjoyed. VIII was one of my favorites, gun swords and all, and while X had a less-than-satisfying ending (probably why they made X2), getting there was a lot of fun. XIII has a lot going for it.
