Story
Cocoon — a utopia in the sky. Its inhabitants believed their world a paradise.
Under the Sanctum's rule, Cocoon had long known peace and prosperity.
Mankind was blessed by its protectors, the benevolent fal'Cie, and believed that tranquil days would continue forever.
Their tranquility was shattered with the discovery of one hostile fal'Cie.
The moment that fal'Cie from Pulse — the feared and detested lowerworld — awoke from its slumber, peace on Cocoon came to an end.
Fal'Cie curse humans, turning them into magic-wielding servants.
They become l'Cie — chosen of the fal'Cie.
Those branded with the mark of a l'Cie carry the burden of either fulfilling their Focus or facing a fate harsher than death itself.
A prayer for redemption.
A wish to protect the world.
A promise to challenge destiny.
After thirteen days of fates intertwined, the battle begins.

Features
  • Take Part in a Gaming Experience that Sets New Standards – The first in the series developed for a simultaneous release on multiple high-definition consoles, FINAL FANTASY XIII pushes new boundaries in cinematic presentation, sound and gameplay.
  • Experience the Unity of Speed and Strategy with the Ultimate Active Time Battle system – The familiar system has evolved, granting players the freedom of executing numerous commands in a single turn with the multi-slot ATB gauge. Whether inputting singular commands in each slot for consecutive attacks, or expending multiple slots at once to activate a devastating blow, it’s up to the players to respond effectively to the battle conditions at hand.
  • Adapt to the Ever-Changing Tide of Battle with Paradigms – A brand-new game mechanic enabling players to assign roles to their party members at any time during battle, shifting between combat paradigms. Consisting of various combinations of the game’s six roles, ranging from Commando, the offensive specialist, to Medic, the quintessential healer, paradigms allow players to respond and adapt instantly to any given situation to turn the tide and seize victory.
  • Witness the Battle Scene Transform with an All-New Summon System – Introducing Gestalt Mode, a powerful dimension of the summon system that elevates the action to a whole new level. In Gestalt Mode, characters and their transformed Eidolons fight as one, dealing massive damage to enemies through simple button commands.
  • Delve into an Emotional Experience – An immersive storyline connects players to an intriguing cast of characters. Will they have the strength to confront their cursed fates, or will destiny prevail over all that they believe in?

The Characters

Lightning Lightning
This solitary young woman speaks little of herself – even her true name is a mystery. She is known to others simply as "Lightning."
Snow Snow
An irrepressible, fiery young man, Snow dives headfirst into danger using nothing but his powerful physique as a weapon.
Vanille Vanille
Vanille is an endearing young woman with a relentlessly sunny disposition. Her bright personality gives no hint of the dark resolve that lies within.
Sazh Sazh
Sazh is a friendly, cheerful man who is never without his curious companions – a chocobo chick and a pair of pistols. He is quick to banter, but also keeps a mature perspective on matters.
Hope Hope
Hope has enjoyed a markedly uneventful youth on humankind's haven of Cocoon. His life is turned upside down at the hands of the Sanctum's Purge.
Sera Sera
Sera is Lightning's younger sister and Snow's fiancee. Always showing concern for Lightning, she has an inner fortitude that allows her to make her own decisions without relying on her older sister.
Fang Fang
Fang is a mysterious woman who is working with the Sanctum military despite bearing the mark of the detested l'Cie. She has a strong-minded personality and is unconcerned with trivialities.

I take one star off for two reasons:
1. the game is not open world
2. the game takes FOREVER to get through the tutorial. you seriously are still being taught how to play at the end of the first disc.
That being said, the rest of the game is great. The graphics are beautiful and the characters are for the most part likable. Hope's a little bit of a whiny bastard but you get over that after a while. Snow's kind of an arrogant bastard but he's the heroic tank character so I forced myself to get over that. Lightning's the bitchy loner Cloud Strife rip off character who oddly enough, like Cloud, is also an ex soldier. The rest of the characters, well you'll meet them along the way when you play it.

Thankfully, the summons are SOOOO much better in this game than they were in 12. The design of them in this game however is completely different from anything we've experienced in the past. Rather than organic creatures, we're treated to more mechanical beings that act more like transformers than the summons we're used to. Bahamut looks like Megatron's younger brother now. Fortunately, the change is good and the animations look badass and there's a reason to bring them out because they are actually very powerful and can save you in a fight. Overall, they're very entertaining and fun to play with.

I found the story to be quite entertaining and although it is a bit slow, I did feel the need to keep going and compete the story. It seems that they took notes from Tolkien's writing style, making sure that you felt every step that was taken towards the goal so that you fully appreciated the struggle and the reward for reaching it, which I might add is no easy task.

The boss fights with Barthandelus are particularly enjoyable.

First off, let me tell you what kind of gamer I am so you know if you will agree with me or not. I have played and completed FF1, 2, Tactics, 7, 8, 10, 10-2, 13, and 13-2. Like most FF gamers I loved 7 the most, and really loved 10. 1 and 2 were great turn based level mashers. Tactics is almost a cult in itself. 8 was really good, but coming off the 7 high hurt it. I didn't play any of the online only ones. Other favorite games: Resident Evil (pick one), Tomb Raider (pick one), Legend of Legaia, Halo, Bioshock, and about every turn based rpg that reminds you of Final Fantasy. I love not stressing out while playing games. With that large list of games, I am not actually that big of a gamer. I play a couple of hours a week, more if I have a new game.

I will start by telling you that I love this game. It was a lot of fun and I really like Lightning. Is she the best FF character? Actually, arguably maybe. The storyline is great. I felt like they actually planned this game out and you aren't just bouncing from area to area wondering what is happening.

The fighting system is new...kind of. Yes, there are now specific summons for each character and they operate differently, but I honestly miss FF7 and 10's version. 8 was pretty good too. I really didn't use the summons. The fighting isn't ACTUALLY turn based, but feels like it. You will learn how to combo your characters for maximum damage.

I am a level grinder. I like to find a good place to fight and just spend hours leveling up so that the next part of the game feels like childs play. This game didn't really let me do that. Basically, the story is very on the rails. You have a starting position for each map and you fight your way to the end...and then do it again on the next map.

This game has some great and fine qualities that are overshadowed by bad development.

ABT (Action Battle Time). Taking turn based gameplay to the next level of if you're not paying attention, you'll lose and fast. Now, this is a feature I actually really enjoy, because it requires a lot more strategy over normal turn based games.

Free roam? Huge worlds? Don't count on it, FF XIII is extremely linear until the very end where the world opens up slightly. You will be running down what seems like never ending paths. Don't get me wrong, the scenery is beautiful. Square Enix never lets you down on breathtaking worlds that can you leave you watching cutscenes over and over.

Class system? It's beautiful. You can't freely pick abilities like in other games and class advancement is linear. However, the ability to change classes live in battle on all characters (setup as paradigms) is crucial to your victory in the game. If you're getting pounded by some flying monster just switch to a tank, healer and buffer. You're good to go for a revenge all out offensive in no time flat.

Personally, I would recommend this game if you can get past the idea of linear maps and running for hours. If not, skip over it.

I'm about 20 hours into the game more or less and I love it! It seems like it would be difficult to understand at the beginning because of all the tutorials but it's easy! Yes it's linear but that's not a big deal to me. Got it on time. Great game! If you have an HD tv get an HDMI cable. It makes a great difference in the graphics. Music is spectacular and plot is tremendous.
