"Far better than I thought"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Leading up to the release I kept up to date with the news on Final fantasy XIII, so many critics said it was linear and gave the game bad scores. Now that I have played it, I see that they were wrong to mark it so low.

Sure, the start is not an overwhelming scale that you can roam around in like fallout 3 or Dragon age origins, BUT THIS IS NOT A BAD THING!!! It makes it fast paced and able for you to grasp the marvelous storyline and the many game mechanics. I don't think that the things that are missing from other final fantasy's is a bad thing either. There is alot of things they have kept that are the better parts of previous titles of the series.

This is a well put together game and the way it presents itself and progesses through the storyline is absolutely engaging and fun, it doesn't get dull and boring like most RPG's, you always have something new around every corner.

I would reccomend you play this before judging it and don't listen to the critics!! unless you have already completed it.

"EPIC WIN!"
5 stars"

This has to be my favourite Final Fantasy game I have yet to own. The graphics are simply amazing. I like all the characters, not just some of them, and it has a unique storyline. Yeah the beginning is a bit boring doing the same thing but it gets so much better.

The soundtrack included is a sweet taster of what the full soundtrack has. A beautiful original score and you get this sample at a fraction of the price of the full 5 disc soundtrack which is about $70 US most places I have seen.

The hard-cover photo book is neat. I got two decals with my one. So I guess that is a bonus and the Art cards are a nice addition.

Its worth buying the collectors edition for all the goodies you get.

"Worst game to grace the series since IX"
1 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

This game was everything you didn't want and more. The characters were all digital copies of old Final Fantasy heroes. Not just similarities but exactly the same. Snow has the EXACT same problem and goal as Locke from Final Fantasy VI. This was nothing new at all. They did not use the full power of the PS3 or X-Box 360; they could give us back the old world map mode which made the game extremely expansive. But no instead we get “go from point A to point B” then you are at the end. This game is easier than tying shoe laces and offered no challenge what so ever, I would be surprised if you don't have a platinum trophy in the first 2 weeks of owning the game. This was a disgrace to gaming; let's hope Final Fantasy Versus XIII and Final Fantasy Agito XIII are better. Also Square-Enix needs to remember that we play Final Fantasy to play Final Fantasy not every other J-RPG, so please bring back the original music.

In summary don't play this game, unless this is going to be your first Final Fantasy in which case I feel sorry that you have not played Final Fantasy when it was actually bearable.

Cocoon - a utopia in the sky. Its inhabitants believed their world a paradise. Under the Sanctum's rule, Cocoon had long known peace and prosperity.  Mankind was blessed by its protectors, the benevolent fal'Cie, and believed that tranquil days would continue forever. Their tranquillity was shattered with the discovery of one hostile fal'Cie.

The moment that fal'Cie from Pulse - the feared and detested lowerworld - awoke from its slumber, peace on Cocoon came to an end. Fal'Cie curse humans, turning them into magic-wielding servants. They become l'Cie - chosen of the fal'Cie.

Those branded with the mark of a l'Cie carry the burden of either fulfilling their Focus or facing a fate harsher than death itself. 

A  prayer for redemption.
A wish to protect the world.
A promise to challenge destiny.

After thirteen days of fates intertwined, the battle begins.
