Final Fantasy XIII review

Reviewed March 20, 2010

Jason Venter says: "The multi-faceted nature of combat means that in Final Fantasy XIII, nearly every battle is a fresh adventure. That's not evident in the first few hours, where you're still learning new techniques and simply mashing the 'X' button allows you to slaughter most enemies that you encounter. The dynamic changes abruptly once you've been playing for a few hours, however, and you're suddenly going up against monsters so powerful that they can smash tanks, or you're fighting so many at once that they can overwhelm you almost before the fight begins unless you truly understand how to get the most out of your party members."

jerec says: "Square-Enix would love to create masterpieces of storytelling, if only the player and the whole gameplay aspect would stop getting in the way, which is why they are taking such drastic steps to phase them out. Final Fantasy XIII isn’t a roleplaying game, and perhaps calling it a game is stretching the definition too far. "

Nightmare says: "If I were to base my opinion of Final Fantasy XIII solely on the reviews of others, I never would have played it. Like many, I’ve been a fan of the series since FF VII, played every installment, and come to appreciate certain ideas—those of which are now missing, shifted or minuscule. "

Reviewed May 01, 2010

Suskie says: "Final Fantasy XIII director Motomu Toriyama once defended the game’s much-publicized (and much-criticized) linearity by stating that his team was going for an FPS vibe, an action-centric experience in which the entirety of the design, barring a few exceptions, moves players from one encounter to the next and little else. This excuses nothing but explains a lot: FFXIII has caught a lot of flak for ditching a number of valued JRPG conventions, and this was done to make the game’s bat..."
