Linearity: I can handle walking on a set path for a while. Most games I play does it anyway. Storytelling: In XIII case, it was decent but it remind me of X story. So I'm going to have to go with neither and pin it on the gameplay. The battle system was fine but the overall experience leave me desiring more.
Versus XIII is coming in 2014, GTA5 will be awesome, and PS4/Xbox 720 is coming in Dec. Lightning Return will be super awesome and I don't care what you think!
Story was decent until the end, honestly as much as I bash on the story it is what kept me playing I had to know how they were going to get out of the corner they were painted into. Then I got to the end and I was all WTF was that crap, I hate this game.
