Oh well, I enjoy a good challenge, and hopefully they'll be some sort of Ultima or Omega in the NA release.
Plus I get bit obsessive with leveling up everything.
A lot of complaints are trolling and they are not even logical.
I have no problem with the structure of a game as long as it's fun and satisfying.
It is good to see non-hyped reviews, or at least reviews from those who have not drank the FF Kool-aide. Too many people have gotten sucked into "its FF, it has to be cool and great" mentality and/or those that overrate production value (graphics) over gameplay. FF has become a paint-by-the-numbers game/movie and has become more and more linear and generic as the series continues which is not a good thing in todays market where gamers are demanding increased character customization and the ability to free-roam/ choose your own path.
This is exactly what im saying. If FFXIII had a different name, i bet you everyone wouldn't rave about it. I am a FF fan and have enjoyed the series, but with so many good games coming out early next year, there just seems to be games more deserving of my time than ffxiii. its not a must buy for me.
Plus some of you are blind to how big this really is. The first FF game on a next gen console. There is so much to work with here to make an amazing game. Butttt there are huge things lacking in the game (for me) that are crucial to a great rpg and essential in great ff games. So its upsetting for me thats all.
...Wow none of those reviews/previews even pass the chapter 11 where you can choose your party and assign party leaders as you wish lol. Those are websites who are looking only for hits don't mind them , geeze some people haha...
...Not all chapters are the same length, chapter 11 is like chapter 1 to 7 or longer and so on ... but seems like you guys only want to believe the bad stuff to each one his own...
Just more reasons not to trust reviews I suppose .
Has anyone actually read those two reviews?
I did , did you read my reply? those guys are not even 20 hours on the game and they are talking nonsense.
Let me be more detailed
"Having played the first 17 hours of the game"
lol a straight line...
I so predicted this game to fall, hard
I guess the story, gameplay and music don't count when you rate a game.
