    With a story that would be considered nothing special, FFXII shines with its fast-paced combat and challenging difficulty. Although it introduces many changes to the series, it provides a good amount of things to explore providing hours of fun.

    Under the catastrophic porting shell is a great role-playing game core.

    The mystery of what FFXIII holds is far more pleasing than the experience itself.

    Final Fantasy XIII has its own set of problems, mainly consisting of a mediocre story and incredibly linear progression for the first forty hours, but the poor PC optimization puts it over the top.

    Parts of Final Fantasy XIII are worth the absurd amount of time it takes to properly open up, but this port is a big letdown.

This game is a visual treat with some of the best music in games. It is an AAA RPG which is linear for most of the game. Remember when we were blaming Square Enix for launching it only on the consoles? Well its here finally on PC now so stop complaining and start getting immersed in the world of FFXIII Expand

Let me just begin by saying that I thinkThis is one of my favorite games of all time, and I think the PC version has the best experience. Let me just begin by saying that I think FFXIII has the best soundtrack of any game I've ever played. Masashi Hamauzu's works are pure genius and fit so well within their contexts. The combat system is also one of my all time favorites. The story gets pretty convoluted (what jrpg doesn't?) but I loved it once I really dove into it. The game is absolutely beautiful, even to this day. My ONLY complaint is that there's no real endgame content; if the Seventh Ark (or other content) is ever added back into the game in a future remaster this game will get a perfect 10 from me. Expand

    With release of FF XIII-2 squenix also patched FF XIII and earlier graphical problems are mostly gone.

Its now playable in higher resolution so earlier port problems are mostly gone.
    Game itself is ... well its not great but it kinda grows on you. I started from anger to actually looking forward to seeing what next location brings. That said, game is linear as hell, basically locked in corridors so if you like more open gameplay (like in FF 7 or 8) you're going to be dissapointed. Combat on the other hand is much more enjoyable and it really helped me getting through first hours of game.
    Solid 7/10 considering very low price is really good deal.

The battle system is almost like watching automated fights all the way long. It also takes some time to understand whats going on in the story.

    I think unless you are not a hardcore fan of the FF series, there is no need to play it, since there are enough better JRPGs out there.
