Tell me why I SHOULD or SHOULD NOT buy this game - FF XIII Editio

Posted by Lukeweizer (2764 posts) -

Final Fantasy XIII is on sale at Best Buy for $29.99 (Canadian). I'd probably get it on 360 (I can't say 'No' to points). From what I've heard people complain about the game, it just sounds like Final Fantasy X, which I liked. And I haven't one since X, so I'm kinda in the mood. Or should I just say 'Fuck this new age hippy shit' and play FF VIII?

No? All this talk about Linear areas just reminded me of running from one point of the map to the other in X. Besides from the occasional puzzle.

If you will have a problem with the linearity of the game (you can't decide where you go and what you want to do, at least not until much later in the game) then don't get it. But otherwise it's a fun game with pretty graphics, good combat and a pretty awesome setting if you ask me. 
 
If you want to roam around and have more freedom, go for the VIII!
