Its a great trailer, CG is good, voice acting good and great story, but for F***SAKE turn that Leona Lewis off.
I can't wait. Oh my God, I can't wait.
"Man what's with everyone hating on the voice acting. It's actually pretty good with the modified lip sync. It's not the problem here. The dialogue is what could be considered "cheesy", but it fits the characters and game. I said something similar a while back on a previous trailer posted on GB, but it's a Japanese game made for Japanese players. This kind of "cheesyness" is pretty typical over there, and the emo characters are as well. The only reason people prefer the Japanese voices for crap like this is because it helps give them the illusion that Japanese-created fiction is better than it seems. In the same way that your imagination makes most books more enjoyable. If you don't like Final Fantasy, stop trolling and ripping on the VO when its not justified at all. "
" The final 60 seconds of this trailer...... wow. "
How the hell can anyone call this CG bad? This is probably the best I've ever seen in a game.
emo overload >.<. maybe the japanese eat that shit up but some westerners will be put off by that.
graphics look amazing as expected for an FF game. the voices aren't bad but that song wtf, too loud and definitely didn't fit the 2nd part of the trailer. All in all a very poppy trailer but I guess teenagers are their main demographic.
That was a great trailer, but that song needs to go. It was totally throwing the feel of it all off.
I swear the black characters are always more exciting.
All you Japanese dub, English sub purists need get over the voice actors or import the game. Anyone who says the voice acting is terrible is over the top bias. Perhaps it may not be quite as good as the Japanese voices, but terrible? Clean the crap out of your ears.
Most schizophrenic trailer ever.
I just did a side by side of the English trailer with the Japanese trailer, the voice acting is not as bad as some of you are making it out to be.
That said, sadly the game looks kind of ordinary to me, nothing really exciting/fun about it.
I'll hold off for now, I'm waiting for versus 13, that looks kick ass

Personally I like the trailer, I think the song fit's kind of the angsty, over dramatic stuff these games go for anyways. Voice acting is kinda lackluster at parts, but still not by any means terrible. You weeaboo's need to lighten up.
That song didn't fit the action on screen at all...seems like some kind of lame marketing deal went down...
Screw you guys that was an excellent trailer.
I don't know what's with the mindset that English dubs always have to suck and that there's no place for pop music in video games.
I was really holding out hope that FFXIII would redeem the awful trash that FFXII turned out to be. Everything ive seen of the game left had left me doubting its quality more and more. And now this music video overflowing with emo....i believe this game will finish off what FFXII started
Henceforth i think ill stick with BioWare as my go to RPG people.
Hmm, I quite enjoyed watching it (having seen very little of FFXIII so far). Voice acting is no worse than FFX and thus not a problem for me. I'm not a Japanese VA snob, you see.
damn leona lewis
Wow, people are really upset that there's a cheesy love song in a final fantasy game?
shitballs i liked that trailer
Yep, looks like Final Fantasy to me. Getting it.
Suprise suprise, weaboos going crazy over how 'shit' everything not from Japan is. Embarrasing.
Looks like a lot of fun, also TROY BAKERRRRRRR
Also the japanese dub is kind of meh too.
What word ends in old and starts with S? FUCKING SOLD MOTHER FUCKER.
Nice...Lightnings VO seems crappy though but w/e
It's no surprise that the voice acting isn't very good as most of the English VAs are most nonames and/or non veterans so they probably don't have a lot of experience (probably to save money on Square-Enix's part). Still the English voices don't sound THAT bad, it's just that the lack of good dialogue is compounding the issue. At this point, I'm still probably going the route of importing the Japanese PS3 version (once the price goes down) and then buying the US 360 version, unless there is the possibility of them releasing the Japanese voice track as a separate download option.
C'mon guys SERIOUSLY??? You are bitching about a pop song!? Did you not play any FF after VII? The first FF with spoken words was VIII and you know what those words were??? A POP SONG! And VIII was awesome. I can't stand this, no wonder games that sell the most copies have mediocre stories, cause you yahoos can't stomach a little bit of life, or emotions in your gaming experience. Unbelievable, what's the world coming to? I think you are all just afraid that if you felt a...GASP...EMOTION, it'd make you gay or something. Life is emotion, HUMANITY is emotional. Maybe try to grow up a bit and embrace it. This piece of entertainment will be timeless due to it's story, and it's actually pretty awesome voice-work.
Oh and it didn't look dubbed to me, could they have actually re-rendered the cut scenes with new lip sync? That'd be incredible.
And BTW I don't like pop music at all, not even remotely, but it's not new to FF, and I think it fits well with the themes of the story and the trailer. You guys are acting like it's un-american or something...take a pill.
Will the weaboos please sit down and shut up? Thank you.
The song actually fit... until the trailer moved onto the action-oriented stuff.
WAY better than the older trailer, and nice overall. So STFU.
PARADIGM SHIFT! Those paradigms be shiftin' an' shit. I thought Nintendo copyrighted that?
Also, the description for Final Fantasy XIII is hilarious.
People are just pissed that the person singing the song isn't yellow. It's not and gayer than other Final Fantasy theme songs. Anyways the voices are fine but I'll probably set it to Japanese. It's giving me a Final Fantasy X vibe though which makes me nervous cause FFX sucked. Also, the black dude looks like Michael from Lost.
Why does everyone bitch about the VA???, Seems pretty solid to me, no annoying voices and all the voices seem to fit the characters. What is there to complain about???
yay dub wasnt cringe inducing
Not exactly subtle...but then again this is FF we're talking about. The inclusion of Leona Lewis on the soundtrack will surely challenge youngsters who are insecure about their own sexuality (because they very well can't like a game with a GIRL song on the soundtrack, now can they?), but it's entirely consistent with FF's schmaltzy melodramatic storylines and overall mainstreamism. Embrace your inner Britneys, kiddos...
CRAP I really hope that ....THAT music isn't in the real game.. if it is.. I won't buy... So fucking bad and doesn't fit in the universe....
ROFL , that was embarrassing to watch.
Impressive trailer. Have to say the English voice cast doesn't sound bad & I always like Leona Lewis' music. Not sure about the game itself yet but good trailer.
It definitely looks pretty. Much more so than I was expecting (I haven't been following development). The music was a little too loud though, and I found it distracting when two sets of vocals were running at the same time.
Hooray for Leona Lewis.
Who is doing the voice for Snow? Has he been in every JRPG to date? Since I'm pretty sure I have heard that voice in ALOT of JRPGs, one that comes to mind is Lost Odyssey.
Still on the fence on if I should buy it for the 360 or PS3. I like the 360 contoller alot more then the DS3 and Disc switching doesn't bother me at all. But if the game runs like Last Remnant on the 360 then I will get the PS3 version. Well, it looks like its not going to be a day one purchase since I want to know how well it runs on the 360.
I still think the game will be good but this trailer is HORRIBLE
i just laugh at the idiots who won't buy the game because of a song.
I thought this was a really cool trailer. It kind of encompassed the basis of the plot to tell us what it'll be about without giving too much away. Although it's going to bother me that they changed "Break" to "Stagger" in the NTSC release.
This trailer is crazy ridiculous. Perfect.
" The Good:Totall agree
-Lip-sync is amazing - well impressed with the effort put in
-Cut-scenes/GC looks stunning
-Trailer WAY too long. When will SE learn that long trailers can bore an audience
-Volume of music need to dim when characters are speaking
-Cocoon and Fal'Cie are pretty dumb and clumsy words; again, not good trailer material
-People complaining of the voice acting and stating that the Japanese VA is so much better - see
Darkstar614's comment, he's pretty much bang-on with the book analogy "
Endurance run please!
