this is for not a good Final Fantasy game, the only ones it is better than is 1+2+12, at least in my opinion..
oh and btw i have defeated the last boss...
The battle system to mention something is what i dislike the most, it feels tedious, and at the end of the game you are just beginning to get annoyed with it.
I don't like that you only control one character at a time, since most of the time it seems that the AI is just using what I would have been used if i controlled them but just used auto-battle, and since auto-battle often uses less than optimal abilities this annoys me.
The story is weird, the whole story seems so strange and odd to me, even more so than earlier final fantasy stories, and with the linearity it makes sure you dont miss a thing.
I miss having a world map, and i mean a real world map where you control a mini version of you party leader, like in the past games before they started FFX.
when the game is as linear as it is, this takes away all incentive to play through it one more time, and since the sidequests are just these missions from these stones i do not see anything of interest there either.
It is by no means a bad game, it just doesn't feel like a Final Fantasy to me, i dont know what would describe it as but i have never played a game more linear than FF13 in this genre.
My own top 11 of the final fantasies i have played:
i have not played 3 and 11 enough to give honest opinions.
all of the above is an expression of my opinions and should not be regarded as facts.
edit: forgot to mention the music:
The Music i find very bland and forgettable, and i really miss hearing Uematsu's music, i played through the whole game and not once did i hear the prelude theme or the prologue theme which has pretty much been present in any final fantasy since the beginning.
if you'd ask me if could remember a single song from FF13 i would not be able to.
