Summary: Arrived on time, came as described, now my daughter has not played it yet, it is a Christmas gift so I can not tell you yet how good of condition the disk is in or how well the game plays that's why I haven't given it a 5 star rating, but we shall see! Time will tell.
Summary: I can't believe how much fun I had with this game. The battlesystem is really good and challenging, the visuals are nice, but can be ugly as well at some parts. And there is a **** of content. Character are meh this time around.
Summary: When I bought this I genuinely expected this to be terrible based on other reviews , but from playing it myself I must say I thoroughly enjoyed it. The time element isn't as restrictive as people think at all , the graphics are gorgeous , the world is vast and beautiful and the gameplay is epic.
Summary: I've been playing Lightning Returns now for about a week, and while I enjoy the new combat mechanics the story seems very drawn out. If you an avid FF gamer then it's a must buy, but for someone who wants to play this series for the first time they will be very lost.
Summary: I take one star off for two reasons: 1. the game is not open world 2. the game takes FOREVER to get through the tutorial. you seriously are still being taught how to play at the end of the first disc. That being said, the rest of the game is great.
Summary: Paradigm system is interesting. Playstyle reminds me of old Secret of Mana where you sorta program the style of your team mates and you only control one person. However the ability to switch Paradigms on the fly in combat makes for some very interesting and dynamic battles.
Pros: Good game with interesting plot. Beautifully rendered cutscenes.
Cons: This version is on rails for most of the game and sometimes it feels like you're play is less important than the numerous cutscenes themselves.
Summary: Being the newest game in one of the most beloved and successful video game series is never easy and while XIII doesn't hold a candle to the best FF titles, it is still a good game in its own right.
