It deserves a lot of the hate, but it's still better than some other FF games.

frustrating crap, turned Final Fantasy into just a string of battles.

I like it.
The combat system and music especially. It feels fast and I like how characters move around the battlefield constantly and how timing affects the effectiveness of your attacks.

It's pretty bad. Sidequests are the only fun part and it takes like 50 hours to set up for it.

Would not recommend to anyone.

13-2 > 13 > Shit > LR

>>323224835
long hallway, I thought it was an exaggeration until I played it, 16 hours of nothing but running, watching cutscenes and killing, no side-quest, no events other than the Main Quest

it's really shitty, read a summary of the plot or watch the movie in youtube and move on to
XIII -2
>>
>>323224835
terrible
sure turn based system is dated but i'd rather have ff10's combat system than this paradigm auto battle shit
>>
>>323225325

It's not that hard to find out, it's just some plot elements are fucking stupid even when you figure them out.
>>
was ok if you were really into the combat and music
needed to change the name to Fabula Nova Chrystalklys so no one would bitch about "it's not like other FF".
Also: never play on automatic setting, it justs makes it the horrible auto game everyone thinks it is,

It's a good game, just not a good Final Fantasy game.

Destroyed all good will fans had for the series, then wasted everyone's time with 2 sequels nobody asked for to milk the assets they spent years working on for all they were worth. Caused permanent harm to the design philosophy of the series as can be seen in FFXV and VII's retarded shallow action combat.

Feel free to elaborate.

>>323225685

He could pretty much do both of those in XIII-2 couldn't he? Or did they only have a datalog for XIII without the cutscenes?

Besides, the story seemed clear enough as a standalone title.

I'm thinking of picking it up on PC, anyone know if that version is any good?

Barthandalus is a criminally underrated main villain.

I don't think its the same, it's just a quick summary

but yes, XIII and XIII-2 are completely separate stories, but there are some things that makes more sense in -2 if you have played XIII
>>
>>323226229
If you are a medium-low end pc player, it's surprisingly well optimized and dont ask for much. If you are a high en PC user, well... Search for some modes to fuck up the resolution and FPS caps.

The Call of Duty of J"rpgs".

Literally just a fucking tunnel filled with obnoxious characters.

Not the worst thing ever but fans' expectations were very high. As a casual FF fan I'd give it a 6/10. Boring plot and characters, combat system that takes too long to become engaging and then doesn't go far enough (but is still somewhat fun), beautiful environments, great music.
>>
Story and combat were okay

Graphics and music are really good


6/10

Funny thing is I still have nostalgia for its music. The music is good enough that it makes the game seem less shit in retrospect.

-Runs at 592p while PS3 version runs at 720p
-Cutscenes are compressed as FUCK while they're lossless on PS3
-3 discs that you have to install vs 1 disc that you don't
-no 5.1 audio support (like 360 games in general)
>>
It's soundtrack is the best in the series. Uematsu made stand out singles, but Hamauzu's theming is insane.
>>
>>323230161
Yikes. Wish I knew about this before I bought an xbox 360 many, many years ago. No wonder the cutscenes looked suspiciously fuzzy.

Final Hallway XIII is an amazing game. Sold as fast as lightning in stores.

>It's soundtrack is the best in the series
In my opinion, it's not video gamey enough. The battle theme is beautiful, but you only hear the first ~20 seconds of it until several hours in. It just doesn't feel right, having sweeping orchestral in a game like this.
>>
I went into it with low expectations and was still disappointed. I dropped it fairly quickly due to the terrible combat and environment/level design.

Luckily a lot of the field music had an electronic tinge to it.

Music and graphics are the best of the trilogy, your milage will vary by how much you like the story. Objectively it's the worst of the three. Subjectively I enjoyed it the most, especially once you get a little freedom later in the game.

>13-2 is shit

This so fucking much. With FF XIII I think the hate is justified but it still tried to do a lot of things; modernize the classic ATB battle system, set an original lore that's not your typical anime re-run, do away with tones of grinding, be a little more complicated than your average jrpg.

XIII-2 was just shit. It gave the illusion of a less linear world but in truth it was just a collection of really small maps with locked locations that forced you to jump from one time to another to unlock. In reality it was just as linear with annoying load screens on top. The story was royally fucked, it would make more sense to make it a complete spin off with Noel and Yeul rather than forcing a sequel out of XIII. And finally the battle system, the best thing about the first game was simplified as fuck. The puzzles were the only redeeming quality of the game.

Can someone make a serious case why they liked XIII-2 ?
>>
>>323231830

Chocobo racing.
>>
>>323231830
I hated it, played it for five minutes and took me a year and alot of effort to give it a chance. Once I got into it a bit, I enjoyed it enough but no where near ffxiii or lightning returns. Also the graphics where a clear downgrade from XIII.

Also did anyone feel that XIII-3 could have been soooo much better if they'd worked on it for a few more month the game felt incomplete.
>>
>>323231830
Theres a subset of people out there that get genuine enjoyment out of the act of collecting things and general completionism. I think its mostly these people who enjoyed XIII-2
