A fantastic entry in the series, with it's main flaw being that it takes a very long time for the combat to reveal it's greatness. Makes FF VII look like a pile of oily rags. Set that shit on fire and give FF XIII a try. Before long, you'll be glad Aeris is dead.

Combat was pretty aight, graphics were great, musics were godlike, game was pretty long, but the thing is that the game takes pretty much 25 hours to actually take off and feel like an actual FF game. And it still has meh characters and an average story.

The game isn't THAT awful, but it's certainly painful to play at times, since we know it might end up be great, but we have to stick through hours of ultralinear gameplay before it finally gets interesting.

FF X was very linear too at the beginning, but it at least made up for it with a great story and a shorter "intro", imo.

@ Rob-Ot, I don't think so. XIII bored me a lot and was far away from being a JRPG and ven far away from being a good game. XIII-2 has more variety with some miniquests, alternative places, riddles and other mini games. Even the story, which isn't that great, is better than it's predecessor.
Just my opinion

I know what Sqaure Enix are saying. they think adding 200 monsters to catch and train and multiple tree dialogues makes a game better. i think if people want monster training they will buy Pokemon, not FF, if they want multiple tree dialogues they would buy Mass Effect, not FF. the point is they havent actully fixed the poor dialogue of FF13, or the unrealistic characterisations. i think their creating more problems by trying to add things that dont need to be added while not improving on the things that were trutly bad in FF13, like the story.

Well FF10 sold 8mil and 10-2, sold about 5mil, with that logic 13-2 should do about 4mil. but since i think it was very unpopular compared to FF10, i cant see it doing over 3mil. i can realistically see about 2.5-3mil.

@ The_Joker_Product sorry dude but even me, beeing the FF entusiast that I am know XIII-2 wont sell anywhere near 4 millions, the preoders in Japan right now are "only" 600k less tham XIIIs preorders were at the same time from launch. XIII-2 will sell around 700-8000k on Japan, will probably not do very well on the USA were most of the XIII hatters are and sell another 800k or so on Europe for a total of about 2 mil. Thats how I see it going anywhay, Im buying 1 for sure.

@A203D I dont think Square is concerned about XIII-2 sales, they pretty much know it wont sell nearly as well as this game but they arent expecting it to, its a considerably low budget game, built upon a DLC that was planned for XIII using the same engine character etc etc as XIII. Itll probably sell aroound 1-2 million worldwide and Square will make a very hughe profit from it.

Its probabily selling a few copies here and there. Square should do a White Knight Chronicles and put FF13 in free with FF13-2, to incentivise people who didnt get it to pick up 13-2. personally i don see people who didnt play FF13 getting 13-2 and i cant see many people who got FF13 queing up for 13-2.
