Considering FF series is suppose to be the best of JRPG with millions of fans
world wide. FFXIII is a big disappointment for all of us and a good example of
what happens when developers forget that FF is a game, an RPG game, not a HD
First look, pretty, intro was impressive but that's about it.
Story line: after 4 hours. I still couldn't understand what is going on.
There is no background, no foundation. Just bit and pieces
Combat system: real time, similar to star ocean but you can only control
1 character, if you die, game over. You can revive your teammate but they are
not smart enough to revive you? To make it worse, to use certain skills or
spells, you will need to swap classes, and since this is real time battle, while
you are scrolling thru your ability list, selecting which target to attack.
Enemies will continue hammering you non-stop. And there is no option to turn
combat to turn-based either.
After months of waiting, it is sad to say that I won't be finishing nor
keeping this game.
