Just a reminder, use the Spoiler tag for spoilers, that's (spoiler) blahblahblah Aerith dies (/spoiler) for example , just replace the brackets with square brackets.

This is due to the very real danger of me breathing fire if I see spoilers. And I am NOT paying for the damages _.

Re: Final Fantasy XIII - March 10th 2010, 11:41 PM

I got it, and I'm about 10 hours in. Great game so far. I like it MUCH better than FFXII, which was a poor excuse for a FF game in my opinion. This one has a FFX type of feel to it. If you like that, then I think you'll like this.

This game isn't without faults though. Here are my basic thoughts:

1. Too linear. No towns. No shops. Nada. Literally its like a straight line with battles in between (think FFX). But considering the story, at least it makes sense and its bearable. You'll see once you play. Plus, the battle system makes up for the linearity. It's alot of fun to experiment and work with. Its scaringly simple in the beginning but it does get complicated later in the game.

2. All the characters are great and memorable, with good voice acting for once. Vanille may get on some people's nerves though. But sadly, we get alot of girls like that around this area so I'm used to that [horrible] voice and the perky personality.

It's not the best FF, but its good, fun, and entertaining. I recommend it

From the reviews I've heard so far, I hear it's a really good game, but not outsanding. The whole linearity part of it disappoints me because I do enjoy open-world RPGs where you can visit many cities and town and have side quests. I've never played Final Fantasy before except a bit of VII. I do want to try the series out with this title.

Most likely will play it when it drops in price, borrow from a friend, or buy it used. I'm more interested in trying out Heavy Rain or God of War III xD.

Re: Final Fantasy XIII - March 31st 2010, 06:08 AM

Its allright i guess. What i dont like about it is that there are no towns. There are side quests but they arnt unlocked till near the end of the game and they arnt as fun as say the ones in FFX. The game feels like one giant battle. Free roaming is limited to one area (Which isnt unlocked till near the end) The adventure aspect in this game is gone. Its preaty much just follow the path kill enemy along the way throw a few cut scenes in there then a boss then rinse and repeat. The battle system is just rly mashing the x button and doing auto attcks and changing your pardigms every once in awhile. The story is really good but thats about it.

Bottom line - Its worth playing (Just dont expect a perfect game) but wait till it goes down in price definitely not worth 60 bucks I give it 5.5 outa 10

I've seen other Final Fantasy games after the very first one, and I still think old school nintendo, the very first Final Fantasy is the best way to go. I'm just kinda old-fashioned too I guess.

Re: Final Fantasy XIII - April 3rd 2010, 03:20 AM

its a great game. played straight for six hours today, i just couldn't stop.. not too changelling but changelling enough to make it fun. first time gamers could definatly play it and not get all confused. way better then the last! all around it has a great storyline, great characters, ahh pretty much just great everything! the guess the only things that slighty bug me are a) sometimes Vanille and b) how expensive the cp get later on in the game.


" One day at a time, this is enough. Do not look back and grieve over the past for it is gone; and do not be troubled about the future, for it has not yet come. Live in the present, and make it so beautiful it will be worth remembering. "

i wonder when i'll finally jsut start accepting myself, when i'll stop saying i wish i could be like that person.

i have facebook, and myspace. and you can ask for it. :P
