Rated 5 out of 5 by MrsMartin906 Amazing game!
My husband has been waiting for this game to come out for forever. I pre-ordered it for him. He loves it and I have to admit I find myself sitting here watching him play :) The only thing I was disappointed with had nothing to do with the game. I always preorder movies and books from walmart.com and I get them the day they come out but with this game I didn't get it until a few days later. i wasn't as disappointed as he was :)
Rated 5 out of 5 by CMONEYCASADOS FROM HATING RPG'S TO LOVING THEM
I am normally a thrid person shooter or a fast motion reaction gamer with the exception of loving music games. I have HATED RPG's for as long as i know but its probably because the xbox doesnt have very much that are good. My friend got me and him a copy of Final Fantasy XIII and by far i thought i would hate it. Surprisingly i fell in love with the storyline the characters and the cut scenes that were really awesome with graphics and emotional storyline by far i love final fantasy XIII and i will probably get a ps3 just to play the series
Rated 5 out of 5 Great game
This game is pretty sweet. Far surpassed my expectations given that Final Fantasy XII wasn't that great.
Rated 2 out of 5 Not what I had hoped for.
The game was very linear. No freedom until the end, and even then it was very limited. I was not a fan of going through a cut scene, then running 10 steps and going through another cut scene. Why not just make it one cut scene? That happed all to often. The fighting system was interesting, but i don't like the lack of control over your party members. Also, the fights were to fast paced for me to enjoy the animation.
Rated 5 out of 5 by rockstarsrus love it.
Very challenging game for one that has never played anything like this.
Rated 4 out of 5 by snowyotter Great, but nothing unexpected
I honestly knew I was going to love this game, and I do. However, it has a new battle system (as compared to previous FF titles) which is very good but rather different than past traditional titles. I think they have spent more time focusing on making the new battle system over making an epic glorious story. The story is good, but you will have no idea what it's about unless you read the journal-type entries they give you, which takes up a lot of time to do. The graphics are great and it's a very smooth game. I highly recommend it, and like any Final Fantasy game: be prepared to invest some serious hours in it because you will be hooked!
Rated 2 out of 5 by newguy65 the shame of final fantasy
As a huge fan of final fantasy i must say that this final fantasy has nothing exciting. Yes the cutscenes are heart-breakingly beautiful but the storyline is where the game falls. Its dull, boring, and dry. the battle system is a failure because the AI basically does all the work you only have control of what style your character uses. final fantasy is better off staying with the old battle system in the older final fantasies.
Rated 3 out of 5 by dogma Whose the Other One
I received FFXIII with the X-Box 360 White Elete Console.
I also purchased FFXIII for my PS3.
I was surprised by teh differences.
First, the 360 conmes on three discs, while the PS3 come on one disc.
I watched the first 15 minutes of FF13 on both consoles on my 32 inch 1080p Samsung LCD TV. Both are connected through HDMI cables.
The 360's version looked more like a blurred copy of the of the video, while the PS3 looked more crisp, and did not hurt my eyes to watch.
Now, I hears a rumor that 15 gigs were chopped out of the 360's version and the video files are compressed, while its counterpart the PS3 used non-compressed files and could generate the video easily through its processer.
I wonder when Microsoft will decide their 360 needs to have a Blu-Ray player?
My advice is simple. If you own a PS3 get this game for the PS3. However, if you need a bigger hard-drive for your 360 get the FF13 white elete edition with the 260 gigabyte HD.
Rated 1 out of 5 by TravisJF TERRIBLE GAME
I heard from a friend that it was a good game, so I thought sure why not. Worst $60 I ever spent. The entire game is walk 5 feet and watch a cinematic over and over.
Rated 5 out of 5 by ladydrafter87 Best game
This is one of my favorite games of the final fantasy.
Rated 5 out of 5 by MisterAmish Everything you would expect from final fantasy.
The storyline at first is confusing but begins to make sense as things move along. But what really makes the game interesting is their interpretation of turn based combat, its a big change from anything I've experienced before and makes the game interesting and fun to play even in the age of instant action and FPS games. Would highly recommend to anyone who wants an epic story, epic artwork and an epic game.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Raineygirl Game didn't allow for very much interaction.
There wasn't a lot to do in this game. It does the interaction itself. If you don't like to do much but watch the game, it is for you...
Rated 5 out of 5 by An0nym0usSh0pper Fun game
The graphics and battle interface are amazing. The characters and story however are not very good. If you play for the action and don't really care about the storyline then this game is great for you.
Rated 5 out of 5 by shopper1382476 Every third one is great
FF VII, X, and now XIII are by far the best. I'm already waiting for XVI. I wish they would dump the sometimes childish dialogue but this game is beautiful.
Rated 5 out of 5 by TheShadow99 A Classic Final Fantasy Tale
This reminded me of the classic Final Fantasy games, in particular III, IV, V, and VII in different ways. I own many Square-Enix games, but this is probably one of my recent favorites.
It has good graphics, interesting battle challenges, and a grand story on the plus side.
It's weakest point in my opinion was it's music. It seemed the same as always, with no real difference since the last time I'd stepped into the series.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Mariza03 Best FF Release, Yet!
