FF 13 and 13-2 isn't a rpg games. Its a movie qta games,where players just sit down and use their left thumb on the analog and the game will play itself.


Says someone who's never completed it. It's one of the only RPG games that can actually challenge you. Don't take kindly to the 'press X not to die' crowd. If you try powering through you'll die in the tougher fights. Newer gamers are spoiled. It IS cool to have to think to win.

Even if you manually input your commands, it's not really different from using the auto battle. I know, I have tried it. Plus there is no way to directly control all 3 characters at once, so it sucks. The battle system does not take strategy.

You don't think at all in FFXIII, the game plays itself, you just switch paradigms every once in a while.

It's such a cheeseball, watered down, casual, ADD, battle system that is so dumbed down for new gamers, and you can't even use strategy since the combat is mostly auto controlled by the AI.


Previous Final Fantasy games you actually used strategy, input every command of every character, plus solving puzzles and sidequests and exploration, etc. XIII lacked everything that should be included in a Final Fantasy game.

That is why the nickname of Final Fantasy XIII is Fail Hallway XIII or Hallway Fantasy XIII or something like that.

Nicely stated, AXKSION.

Good game, but a little more pretty than it is fun.

As far as I know, I invented that term, and I take credit for it. Pretty sure it was me who first used it, anyway.


I was trying to be creative again tho, with Fail (Final) Fantasy XIII.

Get it???

Story: not bad for the first one. Grim-Dark for the sequel. can imagine the 3rd one being depressing.

Music: epic. Caius' theme can kick One-Winged Angel off it's pedestal.

Graphics: stunning.

Gameplay: could've gone the Kingdom Hearts or Versus XIII route. it's just blah.

Garbage.

How the hell did we go from the awesome FFs to such a linear crapfest is beyond ridiculous.

It's a bad game, which is fine. What isn't fine, however, is that SE has put so much development effort into making sequels to it.

It's a good game, and the consensus isn't even particularly negative. Sure you have Greer on this site, blobbing his way into every topic to bash it, but that's just because he's a pathetic loser that only gets enjoyment out of spewing constant negative garbage.

Most people who played it enjoyed it. Critically it scored around 8/10 in most places. It's not as jawdropping as 7/8/9/10, and I wont replay it as much as I did with the snes/psx/ps2 games, but it's definitely worth a playthrough. Sequel was pretty good too.
