Final Fantasy XIII on PlayStation 3

The city of Cocoon is a flying utopia, floating high above the skies, separated from the world below which is known as Pulse. It was created with the intent of shielding humans from fal'Cie, mysterious beings who live on the Pulse. But from time to time, the fal'Cie find ways to contact inhabitants of Cocool, turning them into "l'Cie" - perceived by humans as slaves of the fal'Cie, destined to do their bidding. The Cocoon government, Sanctum, uses their own specialized army known as PSICOM to "Purge" citizens who are suspected of becoming l'Cie, and banishes them from Cocoon.

A former Cocoon soldier named Lightning searches for her sister Serah, who was branded as a l'Cie. Her fiancee Snow, leader of a rebel group that opposes the Purge, meets Lightning and a few other companions as they venture into a fal'Cie dwelling to rescue Serah. However, having fulfilled her unknown mission from the fal'Cie, Serah turns into a crystal. Her last words to Lightning and Snow are "save Cocoon". Determined to find out what exactly the fal'Cie wanted from Serah, the heroes attempts to contact a fal'Cie, and as a result turn into l'Cie themselves - without knowing what their mission might be...

Final Fantasy XIII abandons its predecessor's concept of battles taking place on the same screen as exploration, returning instead to the older separate battle screens triggered by contact with an enemy on the field. The Active Time Battle system from the previous Final Fantasy games returns with some changes. The player only controls one character in battle; the other two should be assigned behavior patterns called Paradigms. Commands and attacks can now be stacked into battle slots, which allows for use of multiple commands in one turn for a devastating combo. These commands are filled based on the ATB cost which eliminate the need for MP. Also, the entire party's health is restored before every fight, since magic cannot be used outside of battle. Summons which are popular in the FF series return with the name Eidolons, and each I'Cie has one. Character growth is managed via a system called Crystarium, with the player able to choose abilities to learn or parameters to increase.

Complete garbage. Anybody who likes this are young or haven't played many JRPGs.

One of the worst games I have ever played. I'm really forcing myself to finish it at this point.

Not terrible but not too great either

Not young and have played plenty of JRPGs, don't devalue a game because you didn't like it. Loved this game, nearly as much as I did FFX.

I feel like I'm the only one who preferred XIII over X, maybe I'm lacking the nostalgia-factor haha

FF XIII was meh.

Nah, you're just lacking the taste factor, jk.

I have to admit. This game was bad. Great visuals, Lightning is by far the best ff protagonist, but the whole game.....we don't have freedom, I can't xp as much as I want.....I have to struggle even with weak bosses and the story is a mess......I dropped it in 70% and went straight to 2 and 3 and yeah....I didn't miss anything. Pretty bad start for a ps3 ff game....Thank God the other 2 were better

Unfortunately, even though, final fantasy is my favorite game franchise, i'm very disappointed with this game..If you wanted to earn the platinum trophy for ps3, you had to play for approximately 150+ hours because of the crystal farming that you had to complete, in order to increase your players' stats and imagine the fact that it's not even multiplayer..I reached chapter 11 out of 14 (if i recall correctly), and it was just a failure to me..Yes, the graphics and the story were pretty good though and i give them that but it had nothing else to provide to the gamer..6/10

The beggining of the end, if you know what i mean.... sad

this is probably one of the worst JRPG i ever played

This game isn't bad at all, but it is linear like FFX. The story is okay, the soundtrack and characters are pretty good, and the battle system is actually really fun. It's a good game but not the best final fantasy game.

I do not care what any one says, this is one of the most beautiful games I have EVER played. The story and characters and graphics were beautiful. The game play could have been a little more engaging but that's okay.
