XIII is completely beatable by holding forward and hitting X a few thousand times. Sure, you don't have to use autobattle but it makes no sense not to 90% of the time.
Just like every FF then.
Clearly you never played the other FF games. Sorry you have so little going on you have to be such a diehard fanboy of a videogame.

Trolling? l bought XII day 1. Final Fantasy has been one of my most treasured series' since l played Final Fantasy Mystic Quest on Super Nintendo when l was young. l beat XII (mainly by mashing X) and was extremely let down by it. But, being a fan of the series l Preordered the Collectors Edition of XII-2 and hoped they'd fix their mistakes. They didn't. l didn't even bother to finish XII-2. So, if anyone is in a position to criticize, it's someone like me. It is a fact that the bulk of the game can be beaten bt doing nothing but mashing X during battle. You rarely ever need to shift. Just face it.

It's an exaggeration. I don't like the game that much, despite getting the Platinum trophy, but even I can tell you that the combat takes a bit more preparation than that. I may not like the combat, but it's not just "mash x to win" either. You can complain about the game without oversimplifying the issue guys.

It's not even a glitch, it's actually intended to be played that way >.<

It is possible to go through the game almost entirely on auto battle, thus the "mashing x". Yes, it means you can have some pretty dumbed down combat. However, if you don't like that then don't use the auto battle option and play it creatively!
The game can be nearly won by nothing but mashing 1 button...just go look up the one of hundreds if not 1000's of youtube videos proving it. Sure you can put a ton of strategy and plan everything out but the game rarely ever requires you to make that effort.
I'd also like to note that you could beat the majority of FF7's random battles my holding down x (or circle can't remember which). If i remember the game auto selected attack if you just held down x. This was all that was really ever needed for the randoms.
My problem with 13 wasn't so much the battles as the overly linear nature of it that amounted to a single 20-30 hour corridor sequence. The game is just so tightly controlled and scripted it's barely a game and the auto battle just exacerbated the problem. If you are going to make your game so painfully linear at least make the combat interesting and don't make the most efficient way to beat nearly every battle outside of bosses an automated system.
