General consensus of Final Fantasy XIII?

It averaged a 7.7 out of over 6,000 votes.

Of course it doesn't speak for everyone -- no poll does -- but it seems pretty clear to me that most people enjoyed it.

Out of this world amazing visuals and animations. Gameplay leaves much to be desired.

It isn't trash like a lot of people are saying, but it certainly has a lot of problems.
It's more like a cinematic experience where you press a few buttons here and there.

An amazing game. Just a bit disappointed that the battle system went over most people's heads.

General consensus?

FFXIII is a very linear game that eschews the open world freedom of XII in favor of running in a tunnel for a hundred hours with a storyline that makes little to no sense, after which point Square-Enix proceeded to completely ignore almost everything else in favor of focusing on a girl with feathers coming out her butt. If you LIKE tunnel running and hate towns, you'll like it.

Really bad pacing, but loved Sazh's story arc in the game.

Actually the battle system was so simplified for little babies that it went under our heads.

I personally enjoyed it. Gameplay, story, and characters are all good imo (keyword: imo). I don't think its "trash" just because some haters bash it. Haters gonna hate.

Haters gonna hate games that suck, and lovers gonna love sucky games. There was nothing good or redeeming about FFXIII or XIII-2.

It is probably one of the most polarizing works of art (let alone games) of all time.


This. IMO it's a great game, people always say those who love it are blinded biased FF fans but the people who tend to be biased are those against it, the hate is highly contagious.

What did you enjoy about it? What do you think it did particularly better than other games?
