Final fantasy 13 was more dissapointing then fun. ive put a good 15 hours into it so far and the only word i can think of for it is bleh. they took out side missions (and i am a fan of all the classic final fantasys) the WHOLE game is way too easy. the battle system is fine i dont really have a problem with it but i have a problem with everything else. splitting the characters up and the going through each of there storys by doing a cutscene every twenty minutes. the whole free roaming part of the game feels like a waste of time with no citys to go to or special weapons or magic to unlock. i like the leveling system with the different kind of jobs thats always a good method since ff5 but thats the only good thing.
You might as well give the game a chance and see if you like it but if you love the classics like myself im not to sure if you will.
