What sucks about this game is that you absolutely positively need to have some sort of strategy guide to be at all successful in this game. I almost bought one off amazon, but I decided to use IGN and other websites. It isn't too difficult to deal with the time element in the game. Once you get the hang of it, its kind of fun. Aside from that, one thing that is actually pretty good about this game is the storyline. Lightning returns builds off of both previous games and connects both of the story lines. The ending is actually pretty good. I didn't bother using the new game plus feature, because nothing carried through to new game plus that would spark me to play the game a second time. After I played it, I almost considered starting FF13 again because I just wanted to get a sense of whether or not square enix truly was planning this game from the beginning. I played it for a little while, and after some thought, I think they actually were. Its true.

i like the fight style in this installment once you get the hang of it , it's quite fun.. i like the gear set up the costumes and stuff.. i didn't like that its on a time limit you know the 13 day thing you get no real chance to explore and find secrets and repeating the same quests over to many time kinda gets boring. i didn't like that there are no summons in this one , nor do i like the fact that your fighting your friends .. and i don't like the repetitive dialogue . i guess all an all the good counters the bad and makes it an OK game..
