Final Fantasy 10 was probably the best game I have played, and the only Final Fantasy game I have played so I expected a lot from FF13. From the start, the game sucks I think, like all RPGs, it gets much much better and harder, but the start is painful. So don't send the game back after only a few hours of play time. Keep fighting and you will get the amazing Final Fantasy effect.
Goods: Graphics are awesome Decent storyline Hard and fun battle system (May seem easy and lame at first)
Bads: VERY Linear, follow a narrow path and kill stuff most of the game till the end. Can be overemotional (Former FF players understand this) Vanille = Annoying (Rent the game and you will understand) Boring start
Conclusion: FF13 is a huge game, if you have the time, rent it. Since battles are live, the intense boss battles is what makes this game great, not adventuring and side missions like other RPGs. The more you play, the better FF13 gets.
Purists may not be happy, but the story is as rousing an adventure as ever. Graphics are as incredible as advertised, with good voice work overall. The thing that most won't like is that the story so far (I'm half way through disc 2 of 3) is purely linear. No sidequesting. No grinding. No finding all the cool stuff. I think the story and system outweigh it, but the purist in me knows that many will shut it off over this, especially in a world of open ended games. I still recommend it, if for nothing other than the parade on disc 2. It is possible the most beautiful cut scene I have viewed in years.
The game is okay but when I was on disk 2 the game really started to get extremly frustating and I tryed o defeatedthe same boss 8 times!!! So I have up on the game. The guide may help but it's like 24 dollars for it and I am not paying that. Guide used to be 13. Ridicoius
