I have been playing Final Fantasy games for many years, I have never been so disappointing. The game is linear, the characters aren't even remotely like-able. The only redeeming qualities I have been able to find in the game is the beautiful cinematography and amazing music. The story line feels hollow and rushed. Its a fun game if you haven't been spoiled by the past games, but if you are looking for something on the same level of 7-8-10, then you will probably be disappointed.

It's great to finally have the FF series on the XBOX. XIII certainly isn't one of their best FF in my opinion but it was an enjoyable journey and some of what makes the series so great is still there: beautifully rendered environments, creative lore, aesthetically pleasing characters and out of this world fashion. But so much of what makes it even greater was missing: a strong soundtrack, deep exploration, deeper RPG mechanics. But overall, a pleasant experience full of wonderful eye-candy!

being a huge final fantasy fan i really couldnt wait to get my hands on this........the game looks beautiful , the summons look cool , character design great as usual..... but such annoying characters!! i dont mind the fact the game has a set path but you can explore abit. but the story really didnt do it for me. i didnt really care about the characters and had myself saying "not them again" when id go back to the characters i dreaded. after final fantasy X i felt the series kinda went down hill..... this altho the visuals being stunning it just didnt grip. still ok just dont compare

Final Fantasy XIII 13 is a pretty average game but requires alot of tactics sometimes a bunch of heroes come to together to save the day the game goes on for hours on end and is a definately exciting game thats worth its weight in gold and has excellent replay value

There's been a few complaints at how linear this game is. Well, the game IS linear, to begin with, it doesn't branch out until the third disc. The story keeps it together though. A mixture of unlikely heroes need to come together and overcome their fears in order to save the day.
