Really Bad

Lame

Not to belabor the point but the Timer system in this game is terrible. The one thing you want to do is explore the world but you simply cannot waste a single moment.

Second why oh why has every "RPG" morphed into a button mashing clone of Kronos/God of War.

The dialogue is terrible, the conversations between Hope and Lightning are unbearable.

Side quests are the only way to level up, and inexplicably, there is a tree that grows as you save souls and somehow expands time. Save the monotonous repetitive side quests and just buy some fertilizer already.

If you are looking for Kronos go for it. If you are looking for a FF game this is not it.

Great Music and graphics.
Those are the reasons to buy the game. The new battle system is fun at first, but boring and repetitive in my opinion. I played for about 10 hours (i have beat xiii, xiii-2) and just could not bring myself to like this game. I will be honest and say i did not like the other two games much either though, so I could be a bit biased.
