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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor End to a Great Series September 5, 2014
By John
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Verified Purchase
I have played many of the Final Fantasy games in the series and have always been impressed with each game in the series. I completed both of the previous FF13 games and loved them both. This game takes the series in a poor direction and I do not think is worth playing.

The Good:

1. Cinematic are great
2. Music is great
3. Customizable outfits are a nice touch
3. The new combat system makes battles much more interactive than the previous two FF13 games

The Bad:

1. The party system is gone. It is all Lightning, all the time.
2. Lighting has no emotion. She is like Mr. Spock. Who wants to stare at an emotionless character by themselves dozens of hours?
3. The story is very weak and there is not a strong central plot. Your goal is to complete as many side quests as you can in a limited amount of time. If you have never played a MMORPG (like WoW), you may like this as it may appear fresh to you. If you have played a MMORPG or two, you will probably be disappointed in the same tired quests that are not really tied at all to a cohesive overarching plot.
4. Hope speaks way too much and his dialog is often going on at the same time your quest dialog is going on. His voice soon becomes very annoying.
5. The universal time limit changes the tone of the game from exploring a beautiful universe where you can stop and smell the roses, into a rush to grab and complete as many quests as you can as fast as you can. This also means you can’t stop to level up your character to make later battles easier. You may also will get teleported out right in the middle of your quests.
6. The story is strongly religious. Depending upon your belief structure, you could find this offensive.
