Using the latest in cutting-edge technology, this latest addition to the Final Fantasy series is worthy of the title next generation.

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.

Developed for the PlayStation 3 system and Xbox 360, FINAL FANTASY XIII features the series’ most impressive graphical presentation.

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.

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'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.

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.

So after playing this for about a month now and I have to say, I was a bit skeptical about the game, even being a veteran of 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 10, X-2, and 11. I've been reading reviews about it from various websites, stating that this might not be open for the public or the fandom of the Final Fantasy series, so I bit the bullet and got a copy of the game for the Xbox 360. Let me do a rundown of what I think of the game in categories.


I can tell Square-Enix was trying something new here. The new system they have made is quite "different", if I had to say anything, from all of the other games. It does take a little while to get used to it, but after you get the hang of it, it becomes second nature to play. I do frown on Square-Enix on making you not able to control all of your characters in battle, and having most of the battles take almost forever to complete (and I'm not talking about boss battles). I really do like the new Crystarium system. It really does feel like the Sphere System from Final Fantasy X, but a bit more tedious to level up. Instead of gaining levels to move your pointer and use a sphere to level up a certain stat, you have to collect Crystal Points to progress to the next stat upgrade (HP, Strength, Magic or Abilities). At first, it's very easy to level up, but as you get farther into the game, it gets even harder to level up your characters' stats when you only get about 120 CP per battle (depending on who you fight). I also really like how you don't require MP anymore while casting spells. Now that's a big improvement in difficulty in my book. Another really great thing about gameplay is when you finish a battle, you are fully restored to full HP on everyone.
