The Most Divisive Entry in the Once Venerable Series

30th Dec 2018 | 1,724 views 

FFXIII is quite simply the Final ( no pun intended) nail in the coffin of a long running series that through 10 entries could do no wrong.

This game is very good. It tries different methods of storytelling some good some bad. But I'm happy they tried to change the way it was told. The battlesystem is also change. For me it was the bette

Final Fantasy at first glance

29th Dec 2009 | 1,665 views 

This game is amazing and has already taken its place among its predecessors, with smooth battles, beautiful game play, and a story to captivate any audience. A simplified yet powerful experience.

The Fantasy Is Never Final!

28th Apr 2010 | 1,664 views 

The first Final Fantasy games on the Playstation and Playstation 2 (VII and X) were both amazing - naturally there is a lot of pressure on XIII to continue the tradition, and of course it does!

It doesn't live up to long time Final Fantasy players expectations

20th Mar 2010 | 1,677 views 

As this has been 20 years for a seriously long franchise, its hard to give a fair review as how XIII compares with its predecessors

What happen Square Enix? this is not a Final Fantasy

06th May 2010 | 1,682 views 

"Because players are presented with multiple different situations on the field, in a lot of senses FFXIII is more like an FPS than an RPG," says director Motomu Toriyama. I agree

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.

The 4th best selling in the franchise ( 7.45M ) behind VII, X, and VIII .That is without counting the PC version.
