Fair

graphics does not make a great game

First off I am going to say I was very disappointed in this FF. After playing for 3 hours I realized I was only going to get to go in 1 direction- the direction they wanted me to. I'm sure this is everyone's chief complaint but I'm sorry it ruined the game for me.
The game has the best graphics I have ever seen. But this game proves a point I have been trying to make since cel-shaded graphics killed The Legend of Zelda= the Windwaker in reviews(and sales). The Wind Waker was an awesome game- had so much to do, so much exploring- great challenge, plenty of time to play the game. Most people who complained about it were riding the anti-nintendo wagon and gave it a bad review because of cel shaded graphics. The truth is,this game was awesome and the graphics were actually pretty good for what they were.
FF 13 has a great combat system, great characters, great story- but the linear part of the game just flat out ruined it.

Don't get involved!!!

Worth a play through if ur a fan bit don't even bother getting involved !!!!

Story is fairly confusing since everything has the same name. Power through

Graphics and cg very nice.

Game play linear. Only later side missions
which are no fun. Lotta running around.

The worst endgame of any ff game ever. Cheap creatures. Best way to kill a lot of them is to spam death spells and hope they hit b 4 u die. How lame is that. No good way to make money.

Battle system can be overwhelming. Can't pay attention to everything that's happenening.
A real miss for the ff series.

Kind of dissapointing

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.
