The music is beautiful and more of the mythology of 13 is revealed

Summary: The battle system is somewhat different from the previous two FF13 games. The music is beautiful and more of the mythology of 13 is revealed. There are somethings I wish the storyline would clarify, but that's just because I enjoyed the storyline. The graphics are amazing, but if you do play it, play it for the storyline. If you're not much of a storyline player, you may find it dull, but the battle system still keeps you engaged.
Time limit is basically nonexistent. Decent game overall.

Summary: Wow, the time mechanic threw me for a loop. I'm the kind of guy who likes to be hyper-efficient, so when the game framed itself as 'you have up to 13 days to save as many souls as you can, you're gonna have to manage your time wisely and choose which souls you can save and which have to be left behind' I took that to heart.
Summary: i havent played final fantasy since the first couple came out on the PS gaming console, i tried the demo on my ps3 and decided to jump back into it and ironically started with the last one. I LOVE IT, i love the new battling system, i like all the gear, the scenes, theres not much i can complain about SO MANY HOURS of gameplay, i hardly get sleep and when i do im dreaming about it.
Becoming an expert in time management with this one :)

Summary: By some kind of luck I got the steel book from target with the dlc for soldier first class garb. So already I was excited, now for my review first off it's an open world where you're at a time limit to complete everything. It sounds iffy I know but I promise it's enjoyable. You get to see the world as it is 500 years into the future. And I've more than once found myself standing to listen to a singing npc and things like that.

Summary: I've been a huge, huge Final Fantasy fan my entire life, but this title just didn't do it for me. The game itself was fun and I'm happy I bought it, but to me at least it really doesn't resonate as a 'great' game and certainly not a Final Fantasy title. I did like the gameplay a lot. I say this in a lot of my reviews, but I don't think that I'd ever buy a game that doesn't play well. The mechanics of the fighting system are very good.

Summary: I did not expect to like this game as much as I did. I bought this simply because I enjoyed Final Fantasy XIII and played through FF13-2 (it was okay). When I started playing this, it was a bit shaky for me as the game came off very preachy on the in-game religions, however, as per normal JRPG fashion, give the game a few hours and things start picking up. The story ends up being quite good and (mild spoiler ahead!
Ends the series as well as anyone could have hoped.

Summary: Overall this game really did a great job wrapping up the story. It is kind of sad to see this series end. I know it got a lot of flack for some of the choices Squeenix went with this series but overall I thought it was a great one. Lightning Returns is probably the best of the series. It's close but I feel comfortable saying that. As always my reviews are split into 3 sections: story, gameplay, and characters with story getting the most weight.
