This review pretty much sums up what I think about the game.


Note that I am not the author of this review.

All in all it's a good game, it's just that It could have been better. Even more so considering how long it spent in development.

can i just reiterate how much i want them to make a sequel to this game? so much is left that the possibilities are quite intriguing.

anyone else feel the same way? every time i set foot into oerba i cant help but wonder about the history of the world and how it will have an effect on the present day.

incidentally, am i the only one that gets the feeling that pulse society wasnt destroyed after the war of transgression, but rather just suffered a large (but recoverable) blow? to me, based on the cie'th stone sidequests, it seems that pulse society was essentially sacrificed as more and more surviving humans were turned into l'cie. the remaining non-l'cie humans were either turned into l'cie eventually or killed while trying to survive against pulse's native life and the other cie'th (and maybe even the fal'cie too).

Versus XIII is supposedly set in the same realm as XIII, so we might find some answers there, if the game is based on Pulse and not Cocoon. I think it might be a prequel to XIII actually. The ruins found in Pulse and Cocoon look quite high-tech, almost like skyscrapers and such. That would fit into the theme of Versus, I think.

For me 13 is the best single player FF since 6. The characters are likable, the story is exciting, battles are fun, the difficulty is perfect, the graphics are amazing, the atmosphere has nice variety and the music is good (bonus points for having a little jazz thrown in). I am 100% satisfied.

It's weird how this game is so polarizing.

thats a good point, i really dig the jazzy parts, and the music in this game is, for me, leagues above what it was in twelve.

I waited a long time for this game, but when i got it on its release, and played it, only thing i could do was snore and yawn, great graphics but i just cant get into this game, does'nt feel like a final fantasy title, feel more like just another average role player game, feels just to mediocre for my taste, great graphic boring game play, and no eye poping wow factor behind it. I miss my old final fantasy games when i could decide my character strategy better.

I just got through the Gapra Whitewood...what a beautiful area. It reminded me a lot of some of Philip Beesley's installations:

Check it out, you might see the resemblance, especially the "hylozoic soil" project. I found 'em to be very cool, so it was really neat to see an area that reminded me of it in FFXIII.

I can't say enough about these environments in the game, they really are amazing. But it just makes the straight line path that I'm walking through them even more infuriating. I wanna go explore! : /

I absolutely hate XIII. I'm hopeing that Versus XIII will be more traditional. I won't buy XIII, maybe I'll rent it, I'm gonna wait for Versus to come out.

I just finished the game a few days ago. I only completed the first two missions while running through chapter 11, so now I'm going through to max out characters, upgrade weapons, and complete missions. I'm having a blast. I have God of War 3 also, and even though I've beaten that, I can't seem to pick it up for more than a few hours a week because I'm into FFXIII so much. I have 72 hours played so far and I see myself putting well over 100 hours into my game before I put it down.

It's unfortunate that everyone can't have as good of an experience as I am having. I wish everyone could enjoy the game the way I am.
