Potions heals all = retarded. As a result it makes combat so much easier. The VA is below average for the most part and the graphics are not as good as people say. I'm sorry but FFXII is 5 times better than FFXIII at the moment (About 6 hours in).


i didnt play 12 but i agree with you. potion = heal all = lame and for sissys. controll only 1 character with the rest on AI = lame = for sissys

lol at the sissy guy over here, just try to beat the game without dying then come back.

OT: halfway chapter 9 and absolutely loving it, things sped up in chapter 7 and got me hooked.



Yeah it's great but so hard for me.

Play the game first without dying even once and then you may talk...

Jesus, stop posting on a message board and play a few hours into the game, my friend.  Potions don't scale up and stop healing your party enough after about the second or third chapter.  They're only useful because you can use them in a pinch (they don't require your ATB guage to be filled), but often they don't even cure as much as one attack from an enemy.  Good luck getting through the game without turning one of your characters into a healer (medic) job for at least half the game.

 

And give the rest of us some credit, we're actually playing the game and not a bunch of liars, okay?

 

 



 

Cheesy dialogue + voice acting. Everything else = orgasm.

i have to agree there...potion is so useless in ff13...i tried using it...but it so crap doesn't heal enough....the mobs start doing alot of aoe dmg later...so it's useless later on

FFXIII is total garbage. Compulsory tutorial for the first third of the game- 15 hours is a joke. Most games can be completed within 15 hours. But this will take 15 hours of your time to get through the boring chapters. Another 15 to 20 hours on the longest chapter before you finish the last two chapters in the last 10 hours. Long drawn out boss battles towards the end. 40 to 50 hour game to finish the main story. Side missions can only be accessed when you have completed the main story.

The story is utter crap and does not make any sense. The characters are whiny emo kids. The characters know what is going but the gamer has no idea what is going on. Why should we really care about Cocoon or saving the planet we do not get attached to the characters in this game to really care about saving them. Character development is very poor in this game.

Typical line used over and over: "Cocoon, fa'cie, l'cie, focus, focus, focus".

Battle system is complex if it was left to manual commands. Using ATB and you can more or less just press X all the time for most of the game. The Paradigm shift battle system is crap. Options with the classes which are more or less the same: defend or attack- depends on the situation. The game would of been a lot better if they had the leveling system. The boss battles are so boring and pointless. Have to stagger all the enemies but it takes so long to finish them off. FFXIII does not even play like a FF game. This is not Final Fantasy. Go from one cut scene, boss battle to the next and follow a linear pathway for first 15 to 20 hours of the game. Being forced to enter every fight. You can not just run away or sneak up on your enemy for a surprise attack.

FFXIII sound track is totally forgettable the music does not stand out. FFXIII only shining light is its cotton candy graphics. 1080p FMV scenes on the PS3, gameplay in 720p.

FFXIII without the FF name branded on it would of received a much lower score than the low 80's average on metacritic. Below 70 average would of been fair if it did not have FFXIII as its name.

Worst main series FF game. If this is the future of the FF series well it is a very bleak future. Squeenix have failed to deliver.
