5.0 out of 5 stars Superb Role Playing Experience February 16, 2014
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
I understand why this game is getting a lot of hate but i love it. I loved FF13, and enjoyed some concepts from 13-2 but it was difficult for me to become attached to Serah as a character; Noel was great though.

Lightning Returns introduces many new ideas and i love them all. When 13 and 13-2 came out, everyone complained about how linear the game was. Now they introduce a game where nothing has to be done in a certain order, and everyone complains about it's storytelling. I agree that it is difficult to really get into some of the side quests because the characters are so bland, but they provide you with a larger, more intriguing overall story. The fights with each of the main characters at the end of each main quest chapter is great.

The combat is phenomenal. I actually loved the combat in 13 and 13-2, and i enjoy this combat a little bit more. The introduction of Odin as a chocobo is fun and adds a nice element to the game in the form of healing. Another great aspect of fighting is it's connection with time management. Fighting in other rpg's seems annoying, and you have to grind mobs to gain experience and level. This is completely different now that you do not gain experience from battles. I actually enjoy gaining attacks, and abilities from battles instead of experience. It is just something that is new and refreshing. I found the balancing of time between certain hours to be one of the best parts of this game.

No final fantasy will ever match what FF6, 7, 8 and 9 did but that was a different generation of gaming and storytelling.

Anyway. It all depends on what you like in games. You'll either hate or love this game.

5.0 out of 5 stars Different isn't bad February 17, 2014
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Verified Purchase
If you're looking for a "traditional" Final Fantasy game, then just stop now. None of the games in this trilogy have been "traditional" Final Fantasy games, so there's no reason to expect this one to suddenly go back to it. In reality though, Final Fantasy has always been about experimenting, and that's why even just in this trilogy you see a difference in the way the game is played. The same held true for a recent sequel in Final Fantasy X-2.

If you hated Final Fantasy XIII or it's sequel because you didn't like the "stupid story" then stop now. Why would you want to continue a story that you don't like? It just doesn't make sense. It continues with the same kind of story, so if you enjoyed it, and want to see it come to a conclusion, then this game is probably for you.

I love the customization that this game has to offer. You can really change the way you want to play it, and the appearance of your character. Sure, you're limited in some ways of what is the "best" way to play, but there's nothing wrong with just playing it on easy. In fact, all of the achievements can be accomplished just by playing on easy.

The game is pretty tough when playing on normal, which is something that I enjoyed. A challenge is always a good thing for me.

My biggest complaint about the game is the time limit. It can easily be countered by using some of Lightnings abilities and is even easier to control when playing on easy. It's not really that the time limit is too quick, I just always feel like I'm being rushed. It's more of a personal problem than a game problem.

The fact that you can do an infinite series of New Game + helps make up for the fact that you wont be able to do everything on the first play through, and probably not the second one either. It helps the replayability of the game too.

In short, it's a fun, fast paced, action oriented RPG that continues to follow the story of Lightning.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good Game Not Without Fault February 25, 2014
By Sherr
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Verified Purchase
I wouldn't say that this is a bad game by any means. It's a little rough around the edges and has its oddities. I'll start off with the battle system:

The battle system is the main selling point of this game. The main issue that I had with the first XIII game is that you're constantly pressing A while fumbling around menus. That's been fixed. Your battle actions are now hotkeyed to four buttons. There's a feeling of having more control over the real-time aspect of battles. There's also an added defense/guard mechanic. Guarding attacks and timing them correctly is very crucial, esp. in boss fights. If you Guard at the right time, you'll drastically lower damage taken or fully nullify it. If you guard too late, the damage reduction isn't as great. Remember Paradigms? That's been replaced with Schemas. Your Schematic includes 3 variations of Lightning (in different costumes) and you can customize them to your hearts content. You can even adjust the colors. Personally, I found that the magic/phys tank, melee, and mage Schemata combo worked the best. Switching between each Schema is instant, therefore makes it possible to combo more (esp. with moves such as Launch). You are also forced to switch b/t each Schema because you have to regenerate ATB (your stamina meter that lets you attack/defend until it runs out). A minor complaint about the system is that l wished Lightning's movement during battle could be faster.. although there's an Evade option. It can make it somewhat difficult to position yourself from an enemy such as the Earth Eater (pain). There's a decent sized learning curve, especially if you're unfamiliar with XIII/XIII-2 FYI: If you start on Normal mode (aka Hard mode), you have to rely on stagger a lot.
