"A long walk to get where you want to be"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Great cinematic, love the battle system, however it takes about 20–25 hours to get to any point where you feel you have any freedom in the game. The level up system is extremely linear up until the above mentioned time, well generally the entire game is. So why is this game so linear, well i guess that they did task themselves with a epic storyline, told from the perspective of all of the characters, each with an interesting twist on their past. Apart from being flooded by all these twists and turns the data log acts as a great supplementary source, containing detail and background to this world. sure i wish they had possibly expanded it a little, given given us a world more like ff 8 or 7 that you can explore between towns ect. The biggest thing i could say about this game is that during all my play time of the other ff games ( excluding ff x-2 which was terrible) i haven't been able to put them down or play other games until i finish, and currently iv already finished two other games since Ive had it, but it is defiantly worth playing for all you ff fans out their just prepare for the most linear ff ever.

"Tedious at times, but worth it."
5 stars"

Untill about 30 hours of gameplay, this game is extremely linear. It starts off easy, becomes harder, then gets easier again. But when it gets difficult, it gets really difficult. So much so that I gave up for a few months. But, having decided to restart and try again, I can say I am SO GLAD that I did. The game really opens up at the end, with secret areas, hidden bosses, optional quests etc. And it is really worth the wait. Also did I mention the absolutely stunning graphics (some of the best I've seen, on any console), amazing story (of course, this is a FF game after all) and great battle system (odd at first, but you get used to it, and it is intuitive and a change from any other typical RPG fighting system).

Overall, the games amazing graphics, great gameplay mechanics and just pure enjoyability make up for its initial linearity. And it's only $50, which is great value for such an amazing game :D

Description

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.
