really? i heard roughly 80hrs for gameplay and +200hrs with sidequest XD i must be reading stuff wrong then.

 

I have only 2 more side quests to do and I'm at the 60 hour mark, after that there is nothing except for silly amounts of grinding to be fully upgraded with all weapons, but then there is only 1 enemy aside from the 2 side quests (1 enemy of which I already killed randomly outside the quest) to fight, defeating the point of leveling up more unless I want the trophies.

 

To compare by this point in FF XII I hadn't even finished the main story...

This is by far the worst thing about the game... for a game that took +5 years of dev time, hell even 3 if some want to call it that, the time span is pathetic.

I forget who said it exactly, but my gamestop dudes said it correctly, compared to other JRPG's this gen and other FF's, FFXIII is an and i freaking quote... "ON RAILS GAME" the gameplay is trash because its to simple for this gen and there weren't enough mini games.

It's a good final fantasy game, i myself put it above the almighty FFVI along with FFI, FFVIII, FFIX and even FFXII... but VII, X, and II are far better FF's imo. for there time they were the best.

But don't worry... Square may not let us down this gen in the grand scale of things... with that said... Need a lift buddy? http://www.vgchartz.com/forum/thread.php?id=104556&page=2



I haven't bought this and I really don't plan on it. From reading reviews and comments, I have gotten the impression that they took what made Final Fantasy games what they are and either did away with them or just greatly simplified them. Personally, I'm waiting for Versus. Call me old fashioned, but I like a worldmap in my FF's.



Is nothing to say Versus will not follow the FF XIII route.

You must have either:

1. Really short memory

2. Or just very guillable.

Companies always lie about how long it takes to beat their games. I beat Rogue Galaxy is 30 hours despite being advertised on the box that it was 100 hours long. Same with every other Final Fantasy. FFXII was the only one that took me longer than 40 to beat.

It'll be much worse, but that's beside the point. 

You just said the gameplay is trash. That's a pretty big statement to make me believe that you don't like the game.

huh? i could careless what your average Versus hater has to say but im curious why you'd be so iffy towards it... ima ask you on your wall.

It is trash, rubish, scrap, but that doesn't mean i didn't like it, games can be really good and have crap gameplay, look at Team ICO's games...
