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.
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.
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.
great game, once you get used to the new game mechanics

Old school player adjusting to the new battle system
7 August 2011
Summary: I haven't played Final Fantasy since it was on the SNES. Of course, this game far exceeds that system's capabilities, but I am in an adjustment period right now. I'm sure some of the stuff I will mention has been around for a long time, so be nice. :) The way battle is done has changed: it is now active-time based, so there is no turn-based play any more; battle happens whenever it happens. ALSO, you only really control the main character.
Summary: Ok, let's start by saying 13 is obviously a piece of work that has been put a lot of time into. GRAPHICS (let me emphasize) and gameplay have progressed drastically. The picture in this game is stunning, definitely blowing the roof off of it's previous installments and setting a new standard for FF RPGs, much like FF7 did when it came out. The thing about 7, however, was it's stunning story. Complex, engrossing, shocking. FF13 does NOT deliver a mind blowing story.
Another Great Addition to the Final Fantasy Series
7 May 2011
Summary: Overall a fun and enjoyable game, even if it did take several hours to start figuring out what was going on and to progress your characters. If you like RPGs of any kind I would highly recommend checking Final Fantasy XIII, just stick it out through the beginning and it will be rewarding soon enough =P Square-Enix did a great job with the story, it just takes quite awhile to unwind and explain things, but that's just part of the twists and turns of story telling.
Summary: I have been a fan of the FF series for a long time, and I wanted to see how they continued with the hi-def abilities of the PS3. Now, the gameplay is a little different from previous games, but it does not disappoint. To start, don't expect to be wandering around an open world looking to find the next mission or battle, because the entire game is a set path that guides you on your way.
