  • Summary: It's a good game, just not what you'd expect out of a Final Fantasy game. I really wouldn't even call this an RPG, but I'm still enjoying myself.

Polarizing Game Play Detracts From a Beautifully Rendered Story and World

Girl Geek "S. Smylz", Amazon
20 October 2014
  • Summary: Final Fantasy XIII (FFXIII) is my first adventure into the Final Fantasy (FF) franchise. I think I'm lucky in that aspect, as I don't have anything to compare it to. For me, this game is one of the few that manage to completely engross me and pull me in. But, it's not without flaws. The Bad - It is VERY linear. At the beginning, as you're getting a feel for game mechanic, it's nice. But, as the game progresses, some levels and maps can be pure grinds.

An enjoyable RPG under the right expectations

Wreckless Souls of the Fallen, Amazon
27 September 2014
  • Summary: "Final Fantasy XIII" has terrific production values, a fun combat system, and an inexplicable story that I couldn't have cared less about by the end. The story starts out OK if not great, with the introduction of Lightning and Sazh traveling on board a train whose passengers are about to be purged from the planet. But as it goes along, you start to realize just how nonsensical and unmoving it all is.

A Little Hard but Still Decent

J. Michael Gallen "J. Michael Gallen", Amazon
20 July 2014
  • Summary: The announcement of release of any new installment of Square-Enix's Final Fantasy series always brings about divisive discussion of major elements such as the battle system and plotline to even minor elements such as the character designs. Thus, it was unsurprising that these debates arose after the announcement and eventual release of Final Fantasy XIII for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, with the thirteenth installment, as has been the case with its predecessors,...

Great battle system

Josh Stringer, Amazon
5 September 2013
  • Summary: Good game with a good story and lore, even if you have to find most all of it out in a datalog. The real high point of this game is it's awesome battles, very fast paced and strategic, yet accessible even to newcomers to the franchise or rpgs in general. Wonderful graphics.

Not a great Final Fantasy expierence

SuperDorkyGrl94, Game Informer
15 December 2012
  • Summary: First off, I have to say this is maybe my sixth final fantasy game I have played and one of the couple I actually completed. Out of those final fantasy games, this story just flat out sucked. I hated all the characters, I didn't like the world, the summons were retarded, I actually gave up on gathering the last couple of trophies, and the crystarium leveling made me almost want to kill myself but I did finish it.

Puts the player in control of the game for once!

Christopher Lankford, Amazon
12 December 2012
  • Summary: You know it's beautiful, and you know it's linear. What it seems no one has an opinion on is its new battle system. Here's the scoop: Back in the good ol' days of SNES (through PS2), if you wanted to play a game with a decent storyline, you had to sit through at least 35 hours of mindless character-statistic checks and waiting for a bar to fill.

Final Fantasy in a new direction

Symba, Amazon
13 November 2012
  • Summary: This a great addition to the Final Fantasy name although it changes things up a bit, it is still a Final Fantasy game and it may not be the best one, it is still a great addition to the Final Fantasy name.
