i offer this title to those who love Japanese RPGs!


In the previous versions of the FFXIII triple, we saw a series of tiny changes, all of which were geared towards making the gameplay more popular and appealing to the players. Many of the classic elements in the older versions of the FF series have been ignored, and even the famous "Style Change Active Time Battle" system has many changes that were made for more convenience. Almost everything except the non-linear levels of the game and its wider environment is the same as in the past and has the same function. The most important feature of the battle system in this series is the variety of powers that are relatively divided among its many characters. As before, enemies will be shown in the environment, and this is you who decides to fight which one! Energy Point is one of the most practical Lightning powers that comes to need for you during this journey. This mechanism has many benefits, such as slowing down the clock, and along with healing items, you can have it for medical uses, reduces the damage we take during the struggle. The LR is a decent and respectable end to these up and down triples, which may still be far from the classical versions of the series, and many would dislike it, but it has the potential to be remembered with the FF series in farewell to the seventh generation!

Esta bien para cuando tengas tiempo libre


En lo personal fue el primer juego de la saga que pude adquirir Y me encanto en su momento pensaba que era el mejor juego que pod?a probar en ese entonces hasta que pude conocer el resto de la saga Si no conoces la saga como yo en su tiempo no recomiendo empezar con este ya que la historia ya esta empezada y esta es solo una linea de tiempo Tienes un mundo enorme por explorar con una gigantesca gama de misiones y secretos ocultos en sus fant?sticos mapas junto a una cantidad de ropa personalizable bastante amplia en conjunto a sus armas Puede hacerse repetitivo en momentos de tener que caminar por todo el mapa y evitar a los enemigos ya que te cansaras de luchar y solo quieres saber que sucede con la historia De igual manera recomiendo su compra cuando quieras jugar a un RPG donde tengas que gestionar a tu personaje en habilidades, ropas y armas con una tematica "Anime"

Trilogy end could have been better


The third game of the Final Fantasy trilogy leaves something to be desired. While the battle gameplay mechanics are largely the same, the party has dwindled from three, to two, to just one. However, you are able to customize Lightning's battle actions, in the form of different weapons and clothing. You can map out different attacks to the face buttons, and make it completely customization to you. It seems the gameplay got a lot of attention, because the story isn't that great. All in all, unless you are a big fan of the first two games of the FFXIII series, you won't really miss out if you don't play this game. But if you do decide to buy the game, make sure your expectations are not too high.

The third game in the FF13 series, and it's easily the best one!


Where do I start? If you played the previous FFXIII games you should absolutely play this one, it's got the graphics, it's got the story, the music the gameplay, thrilling combat, everything you can ever one in a Final Fantasy game, except now you fight your enemies directly by attacking or casting your spells in real time. You should play this one, it's definitely interesting.

Whoops, I forgot my Final Fantasy..


As a big fan of the FF series of games I had bought this back when it first came out for the PS3. I had never finished it so I picked it up when it came out on PC. Turns out I didn't miss much. I know a lot of people like the newer direction FF took with their games. I'm not one of them. While the frantic action is nice at times, most times it lacks a serious depth. You're simply spamming buttons to accomplish feats and then the battle is over and you're graded on a battle that doesn't neccessarily even need a "grade". Seriously. I just got an "A" or an "S" for doing the absolute basic shit needed to beat a monster? Also, while the 13 series was most definitely beautiful to look at, your basic crafting became a drawn out clothing simulator and "add stuff to your weapon and hope it works" simulator. The 13 series is by far the worst of the FF games. All of them. While I did enjoy the story somewhat, I was left wanting real battles, a real feeling that what I did actually meant something in the battle. It doesn't. While I'm sure you can accomplish feats, maybe, 10 different ways, it has no direct impact on your strategy. You're spamming buttons to accomplish basic feats that will ultimately win the day. One other side note. This last FF 13 game was nicer than the first 2 but the "timer" side of the main story meant you more than likely missed out on some decent side quests so you have to really pick what you're going to do in a timely manner. If they would have gotten rid of the whole "timer" aspect of the game it would have been much more enjoyable. Is it worth it to play it? Yeah. In a discounted manner anyway. While the 13 trilogy doesn't break new ground really, it is a beautiful game to behold and even looks better on pc. If you can get past the button mashing for your feats and can get past that there really is no in depth crafting for a FF game, then you'll get some enjoyment out of it. Sure.
