Final Fantasy XIII was shaping up to be the best RPG of all time. The graphics are amazing, the voice talent sounded great and the trailers got me excited but then I actually played the game....yikes.
Final Fantasy XIII breaks the first rule in a video game...Its BORING!!! The story makes no sense and when it does it decides to convolved itself with meaningless exposition. All the characters are either unlikable, annoying or just plain stupid. The only character with any redeemable qualities is Sazh.
The game is embarrassing easy, just press the attack command over and over again and your guaranteed victory even during boss fights. I only used a potion once and that was me trying to break past the mundane combat system. Eventually the games turns into Frogger as I avoid enemy encounters and rush for the exit just to move the story along, which is a RPG no-no but for this game, it doesn't matter since leveling up is pointless
A lot of players would argue the game gets better 8-10 hours into the game, this is not a positive. The game should be entertaining the moment the first level loads up!
I honestly tried my best to enjoy this game but after 6 hours of gameplay I had enough.
