From the Manufacturer

From the creative minds behind FINAL FANTASY VII and FINAL FANTASY X comes the latest installment in the critically acclaimed series. As FINAL FANTASY VII was for PlayStation, and FINAL FANTASY X for PlayStation 2 computer entertainment system, FINAL FANTASY XIII will be the first numbered FINAL FANTASY title for the PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system and Xbox 360, and will look to once again reestablish the series as the RPG brand. Players will follow Lightning, Snow, and the other heroes who are dealt a hand of fate by the god-like fal'Cie. Cursed and regarded as enemies of society, they have the world against them and nobody to rely on but each other. Will they find the strength within themselves to break free of their curse and determine their own fates, or will they succumb to this higher power? With a story that is sure to connect with players' hearts, diverse new characters from world-renowned creator and character designer Tetsuya Nomura, and exciting new gameplay features centered around an evolved Active Time Battle system, FINAL FANTASY XIII will be the pinnacle in gaming experiences.

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.

Product Description

The 13th addition in the FF genre.

4.0 out of 5 stars First Impressions-- an Interjection March 12, 2010
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I'm only a few hours in to the game, but my experience is already so sharply different from what I've read online that I'm going to add my two cents a little early. I will address the two big controversies that are fueling a lot of misinformation: the Xbox 360 version's graphics and the linearity of the gameplay, both of which have been grossly exaggerated.

Playstation 3 owners are very disappointed that Square-Enix has given so much support to Microsoft lately, and FFXIII going multiplatform was to many an abomination to God. I get it. Really, I do. This happened about fifteen years ago when Squaresoft shifted support from Nintendo to Sony after giving us Final Fantasy I, II(US), III(US), Chrono Trigger, and Secret of Mana, all of which I played and loved as they were released. Nintendo was THE Square system back then, just as many feel Playstation is today. But times change. Instead of being grateful that FFXIII is MULTIplatform instead of a Microsoft exclusive, many Sony fans and professional critics have started a smear campaign against the 360 version that has gotten way out of hand.

The Final Fantasy XIII graphics for the Xbox 360 are inferior to the Playstation version. The CGI video is compressed and the in game graphics are of a lower resolution. The framerate and loading times on the Xbox 360 version are better than on the Playstation. HOWEVER, if you are running the game on a reasonable sized television, the graphical difference is NEGLIGIBLE. The game looks absolutely fantastic to me on my modest 36" LCD screen.

4.0 out of 5 stars Overall, a good game. December 24, 2010
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I think if Square called this game anything other than Final Fantasy, it would have been much better received. Not saying that I think they should have done that, but it just seems that much of the problem many people have with this game is that it is a MAIN FF game.

So far, I've played 5 FF games (1 4 6 12 13). And I think all of them are good games. So Square tried something different this time. Honestly, I liked most of the changes they made.

-Everyone talks about the linearity. I liked it. I hate running around like a fool not knowing where to go next. Not a problem in this game!

-Loved the fact that your health is automatically replenished after every battle. What's more, all negative status effects are removed once the battle is done. And on top of that, you can use regular magic to your hearts content. There is no MP meter. Only special techniques have a limit.

-You only have to worry about equipping weapons and accessories. No shields or armor.

-Liked that you only have to control 1 character. The battles are too crazy. If I had to control all my characters, the battles would have to go a lot slower in order to compensate.

-People say there are no towns. But there are! They are just presented in a nontraditional way.

-Of course the graphics are wonderful. Can't complain there.

-Didn't like the most of the music. It's way too light and "airy" for me. Would have liked something with more "weight".

-Wasn't crazy about the story, but it's the rare video game story that I like, so I wont hold that against it. But it's typical JRPG melodrama.

-For FF15 I really hope they do not try to make the gameplay even more complex.

This is kind of ridiculous. The hate being heaped on this game is almost bizarre, given how remarkably SIMILAR it is to other Final Fantasy titles, most clearly Final Fantasy X.

Let's try to do this quickly, yes? We'll start with linearity. People have complained repeatedly that they hate being confined to one path. Yet everything that happened in FFX, in one way or another, had almost that same effect. Whether it was Kilika being destroyed which left no way back to Besaid thus forcing you on to Luca, or being chased out of Bevelle post arrest and never allowed to return, or "Home" being destroyed leading to a hasty retreat off the island, your path was certainly forced in FFX until you gain control of the airship. Which is not all that unlike the portals found on Gran Pulse in XIII. And there really is no reason to return to lower ranking areas, is there? To what, fight monsters that can be killed with one swing? In my mind, that's actually something that drives me nuts in RPG's: backtracking and having to fight meaningless battles the entire way. Also, just because the Calm Lands in X were a wide space, that doesn't mean they weren't totally linear, cause they was, yo.

Isolation/Distance from the world at large: Much like the chaos that ensues after the 1st "death" of Seymour in X, your characters in this game are almost from the onset branded--literally--in a way that forces them out of the mainstream population. Just as you were "the traitors that killed a maester" in X, you are social pariahs condemned to purging thanks to the nice tattoo you didn't ask for. No towns? No duh. Again, I don't really recall any cities or large gathering spots other than Luca in X, since the premise was an enemy that, thru destruction, prevented any real societal growth.

This is a good ole FF game. Has an odd flow though.
