other than the graphics i hate everything about this game. the story is average, it really bothers me that they decided to go back to having you go through a cutscene in and out of every little insignificant fight also fighting people has no benefit the fighting is extremely boring because you spend most of yoru time just mashing the x button the only stuff you can equip is weapons and accesories the only real action is in the cutscenes so if your into watching a movie then this is all for you but then again why not watch a movie i dont play games to watch cutscenes as the main focus of an entire game i really wish theyd follow step with ff12 yes it had somewhat of a bland story but there was so much freedom and custimizastion options and i absolutely loved real time battle in an open world instead of going into a limited area to fight which your not allowed to menuver or really be able to do anything besides give commands and wait for them to perform said action but in ff12 they had gambits which if your smart enough you can program the computer to behave exactly how you want them too i was able to put up with and deal with these flaws back in the day but nowadays i expect alot more i really really hope ff15 is going to be closer to ff12 than to ff13. to conclude on this the game is a barbie dressup game for people looking to enjoy a soap opera
i am relativity new to the FF series never played any of them so FF-13 was my first and have to say for the first like 15 hours of gameplay it was wonderful and pretty fun had a simple combat system and look great the story was very confusing at times and never seemed to have a set goal or at least not one that didn't change ever cutscene. but after so long in playing it gets dull the fights get plain or just annoying and avoiding the fight just leaves you with less Crystalis to keep your characters up to level i got so annoyed with the fight i gave up at chapter 11 and watched the rest online so i could just move on to the next game. defiantly worth trying to see if its the game for you.
I love the story and the overall game play even the switches from cinematic to game you could hardly tell but what i don't like is this game has an ATB battle system that is way over simplified you only control one character and everything else auto plays its self
