    Wow. This article makes it seem like a piece of shit. I guess making a 360 version of this game was the first sign that Square-Enix is dumbing this down so even the most dedicated Halo fans would be interested/into it. I miss SquareSoft :hs:

    :bowrofl: It's like they forgot they were making a GAME. Maybe they got Kojima to help them during the development process :hsugh:

    Oh great. What I hated most about FF10 and 12 and looks like they are continuing the trend. RIP square.

    i dunno, hard to say what youd like if you havent played an FF before. most longtime fans like either 6 or 4 the best, but id say most people got into FF with 7.

    This is nothing to do with microsoft. Just look at the final JPopmusictasys on ps2, ffx-2 was the worst culprit of dumbing down for the mainstream, followed by ff12 with the gambit system that auto attacked and did everything for you.

    Anyways I heard the game opens up after 7 or so hours, not 17. Maybe this guy just sucks?

    I know it doesn't have anything to do with Microsoft. I was suggesting that it was SquareEnix's new attitude of trying to appeal to as many people as possible in order to make as much of a profit as possible which led them to want to release FF13 on the 360 in the first place. FF10-2 and 12 seem to be the steps that lead up to this point. I hated both FFX-2 and FF12 though. This isn't a good sign :\

    Luckily, there are like 4-5 jRPGs coming out within the first quarter of 2010 so even if FF13 does end up sucking, there are a few other games which will probably steal my time.

    THey have really been going backwards since 7 imo. This quote from the review hits the nail.

    "ll explain below why this isn’t necessarily a bad thing. But going from an all-time high of five playable characters in Final Fantasy IV all the way down to one in XIII is pretty much indicative of the general ratio that informs this game’s design: For every five things you could choose to do in a previous game, XIII offers only one. With precious few exceptions,"

    Final Fantasy from VIII on has been more movie than substance. Seriously? Come on. This is not new.

    This doesn't bother me at all. I don't need to control a bunch of characters, grind for hours, or run around aimlessly wondering what to do next.

    ya jamming on the ol’ X button for hours on end, occasionally shifting Paradigms sounds like soooo much FUN. No death penalty or anything either, this is like the opposite of demonsouls.

    I never had to grind in any final fantasys except for the NES ones and maybe number 5 briefly. Good rpgs dont need to hold your hand to prevent grinding.

    I've played the so acclaimed FFVII but never beat it.

    Played FFX, but didn't like it. I stopped right at the beginning. The main character was awful along with the voiceovers.

    The only FF games that I've liked were FFI and FFII.
