I personally love Final Fantasy. I even appreciate the recent series' concept of exploratory evolution of gameplay. But this? This thing is stinky water trash. It is a tedious, random fetch game with no leveling and no rpg soul. The visuals and cutscenes are literally the only not-terrible things about Lightning Returns. And even those very visuals make the battles themselves a seizure-inducingly chaotic affair. You wont like this game. Any review that rates this disgrace above a 4 is either bogus or from some larping fanboy(or girl) who does not care one iota about playability and execution. Now if you absolutely love this current lineup of characters, this may be a rent for you. (Personally, I find them all whiny, vapid and tolerable at best.) Be aware though, even the voice acting seems disinterested. Did I mention the game is also timed?? It is. And that also sucks. In conclusion..
Don't do this to us again. It is a waste of all of our time. If you insist on doing exploratory story arc trilogies then take what was well received from the first and build on it in the second. Then take all of that input and make something beautiful as the final installment. And frack, if you are looking for a money grab then just release a 3D HD remastered version of one of your beloved previous installments with a generative loot system and custom build weapons and armor. Pssh.
