    Any geeks out there playing the new FF XIII? It's pretty cool, a little linear but great graphics and sound! My best hub is my hints and tips page!!

      Never played any of them but i am a huge rpg fan,just thought that because they were made in japan that the story would lose me somewhat!!

      I like the graphics but not the game play. I liked the formula of FF 3 on the SNES more. I played 20 hours of this and have not picked it up since. It is just uninspiring.

    I only got to play like 30 minutes. My dad keeps hogging the console. Neither me nor my brother (who bought the game....) are getting much play time.

    So far though I wish it wasn't called Final Fantasy. It's not a FF game to me... At the very least it should have been a non-main FF.

    When I play it or watch my dad play it I think it's Kingdom Hearts meets Xenosaga. Not a bad combo (I love KH and XS), but it's just not FF. Oh well, I guess that's what the DS is for.

      Yep I agree - it's more mainstream and there are going to be a lot of traditional FF fans not happy - but it's still a pretty good game other than that!!

    Yes it is a pretty good game. But considering how long we had to wait for "Final Fantasy XIII", it's very disappointing that it's not a real Final Fantasy game.

    Any other name (including a FF spinoff name) would have been better.

    That'd be like if you waited 5 year for COD6 and they decided to make it a platformer. It wouldn't matter how good the game was, it'd be disappointing just for not being what we paid for.

    Is it really that bad? Everyone has been saying it's very linear but I'm a die hard Final Fantasy fan. I bought it yesterday and I'm thinking of playing right now. How does XIII compare to X or VII(my faves)?

  5. The10DollarMark profile image60
    The10DollarMarkposted 12 years ago

    It's a lot like X linear wise. But linearity isn't really an issue.

    It's hard to explain why it's good yet bad. There are a lot of people who hate it and a lot of people who love it. The only real way to know is to just give it a go.

    It's nothing compared to VII.

    But anyway here are a list of potential issues that may or may not turn you off the game.
    - Linearity. Not really an issue but a lot of people think it is.
    - Little explanation of the world you're in
    - Monsters don't change much within a map
    - Loot system can be very annoying
    - Tutorial lasts way too long
    - Game drags on
    - Did I mention Loot system can be annoying? You know what I'm putting that as two slots because it really can be THAT annoying.
    - Always switching characters. Makes it hard to connect with them
    - Characters don't really feel like they're getting stronger even when you use stronger weapons.
    - Difficulty level is all over the place. Sometimes it's too easy, other times it's too hard.

    There are of course plenty of good things like:
    - Engaging battle system
    - Engaging storyline (once you get what it's about)
    - HP heals for every combat

      I guess I'm going to have to just take the leap for myself. Thanks for the input. What exactly did you mean by Always switching characters? Are people going to be constantly joining / leaving my party? I don't really know much about the game besides watching a few trailers (which were mostly just cutscenes) If the storyline is really good then hopefully I can overlook the rest of the flaws ... hopefully

        Well this happens a lot in the first two discs:

        I'm playing as Snow
        Then I get to play as Vanille and Hope
        Then one of the them leaves and I get to play as Lightning
        Then we're switching again. How about Sahz and Vanille
        Hey look, this time I get to have 3 characers.
        Oh no, one of them left, now it's Snow and Hope.

        (I'm making the pairings up but yeah. As you progress in the story your charactes are constantly in and out, and you're constantly switching between their parts in the storyline. It's kind of annoying >.<)

          After about 20 hours of gameplay you do get to choose your own party and the game becomes a lot less linear....but that's a whole 20+ hours of frustration at times!

          I do like the game in general though...great graphics..a decent combat system and the best part - it saves just before a battle so if you lose a battle you don't have to go all the way back to a save point!!!

          I agree...and I like free play...  Side quests...  Not being able to be in control of what I want to do when i want to do it in the game is annoying...

        yep, the party of 6 gets split up almost constantly for the first part of the game, mainly into groups of 2, and they fight back to eachother about quarter way through. its bloody annoying, but its not actually thathard to fight with just 2 people. untill you get to pulse and fight vanilles guardian thing, then its fucking annoying

    Square Enix is not currently planning on releasing FF13 DLC

    Instead they'll have FF13 Versus (PS3) and FF13 Agito (PSP) released in a couple of years.

    its anawesome game, it starts off very linea, need to play for about 20 hours before you can start playing properly. i think the battle system is great, some people say they dont like that u cant control all three players, but u kinda can by chnging the paragims, u get to know exactly what they will do, and they do is what u would of done any way. so in that way u do control them.

    i also love like the leveling system, very smiler to ff10 i think it was (i might be wrong) but a lot simpler.

    any way i love the game, there could of been more variaty in the side quests, and maybe some card games, the card games are my favourite bits of the ff series smile, i spent hours playing the card games trying to win rare cards. is that sad? haha, theres this immense game waiting to be played and im worrying about a card game. hehe.

    I always play these Ginal Fantasy Games because of the Graphics excellence shown. I played FFXII and loved it. Introduction of some new characters are awesome.

    I have'nt played that version of Final Fantasy but I've played 11th version and that's really an excellent piece of work.
    Its game theme and graphics are extremely rocking.

    I've played it. I'm just at the point to where I can freely pick my party and start to assign more roles to my characters. I have enjoyed it and have not really cared that it has been very linear. I feel like it fits the story better that way.

    Enjoyed FFXIII.  I am interested to see what FFvsXIII does to the story as it is supposed to be set on Pulse hundreds or thousands of years earlier, when it looked a lot like the world we live in today (check out the newest leaked videos).  I read a rumor that in it, aliens are invading and taking over/integrating themselves into human society.  I also heard that the aliens are called Fal'Cie.  This makes you rethink Barthandalus's words about "The Maker" and the relationship between human and fal'cie presented in FFXIII. 

    This is an interesting place to take the series if the rumors are true.  It would make you rethink a lot of FFXIII if you learned that things were not as you believed they were.  I also read that there is a film of the beginning 13 days of FFXIII coming out with all the same voice actors so that many of the questions will be answered for those of us scratching our heads.  I don't know what's true other than I know for sure Final Fantasy Versus XIII and Final Fantasy Agito XIII are both real and somehow set in the same world of Pulse....

    I've only played 2 final fantasy games, but I quite liked final fantasy 7 crisis core. Probably my favorite game on the PSP.
