Story
Cocoon - a utopia in the sky. Its inhabitants believed their world a paradise.
Under the Sanctum's rule, Cocoon had long known peace and prosperity.
Mankind was blessed by its protectors, the benevolent fal'Cie, and believed that tranquil days would
continue forever.
Their tranquility was shattered with the discovery of one hostile fal'Cie.
The moment that fal'Cie from Pulse - the feared and detested lowerworld - awoke from its slumber,
peace on Cocoon came to an end.
Fal'Cie curse humans, turning them into magic-wielding servants.
They become l'Cie - chosen of the fal'Cie.
Those branded with the mark of a l'Cie carry the burden of either fulfilling their Focus or facing a fate
harsher than death itself.
A prayer for redemption.
A wish to protect the world.
A promise to challenge destiny.
After thirteen days of fates intertwined, the battle begins.

Final Fantasy XIII

After buying Final Fantasy X last year I was left square eyed with a silly smirk over how much fun and enjoyment I got out of it. The game play is fantastic and the story with intriguing protagonists is the epitome of game playing, and so now wanting more of the same I bought Final Fantasy XIII and I was left even squarer eyed than before!

Here there are many reviewers showing dislike and praise in equal measure and I suppose this depends on how you look at this game.

It is almost completely different from FFX. The game play is vastly different. FFX contained problem solving, turn taking, character side quests which were impossible and boss levels that were even more so.

FFXIII is more story exploration, like a film. The story begins playing as Lightning and Sazh who are looking into the political warfare on Cocoon and the way the opening scenes work is how the game plays out. There are story segments then you are exploring and engaging in battles. This story with its political agendas lost me at the first hurdle, the business about being a pulse fal'cie and where the genesis of the world is completely lost me, which was a shame because FFX had a story that was better than many films and was so easy to follow and engage with the characters.

FFXIII has a good array of characters however, each with their own personality and agendas. Hope is a standout being the youngest but the most emotionally scarred and easy to identify with.

And the battle sequences are completely different from other Final Fantasy games.
There is no turn taking this time as you select attacks, sorcery, summons and use items at will.

FF13 is probably the most disappointing for me in terms of many factors out of all of the FF games produced so far (excluding 11 as I didn't play it).

The game has beautifully rendered landscapes, cities, monsters, weapons, spells, etc., however the main thing missing from this game is gameplay satisfaction... In my opinion the story starts off far too confusing, and doesn't make sense a lot of the time... it's almost as if the creators got bored and said, "Meh, let's skip the boring bits and just get to the action-packed parts", and instead made numerous Journal Entries for you to read within the game, to find out more about the lore behind everything. Not as involving, very bland, almost seems lazy... Through all, it seems like it MAY be cool if you just keep playing... you know, you might just get to a point in the story where things start getting really fun and actually start to make sense, but sadly that doesn't really happen (at least not for me anyway).

The game starts to pick up a bit when leaving the main city; you encounter numerous quests and have lots of objectives and it does keep your attention going for a long time... However, there comes a point when the grinding in this game becomes ridiculous, and the leveling system is so bad that you may find yourself wondering why you're even bothering to level in the first place. The only thing I can tihnk of comparing this to is FF10; it was a grind, but for some reason it felt like there was a bigger purpose, like there was more to do, like you had more options. And if you got bored of leveling or grinding weapon upgrade items, you had Blitzball and other fun side quests to do.

FFXIII is a brilliant game if you can look past minor flaws. The story, if you pay attention, is deep and vast, with beautiful graphics and incredibly colourful environments. The battle-gameplay is fast-paced and fun with lots of options for experimentation. The paradigm system really opens op for versatile battles. These are really the good points, however the flaws of this game are for some people enough to discard it completely (which is a shame, in my opinion).
The game has a slow introduction to the game, which some people find off-putting, and it really first unfolds when you're almost at the end of the game (story-wise). This is a shame, as it stains the otherwise brilliant game. It was necessary, however, due to the story being told the way it is, and it really doesn't bother me that much, but I can see how it would bother others.
The thing I dislike most about the game, though, is the characters. Out of the entire cast I only liked about two characters (Fang and Lightning). The rest of them are either annoying or inconsistent. Snow in particular, with his "Hero"-deal. This really detracts from the overall immersiveness of the game, since you're stuck with a character you dislike a lot of the time.
But apart from the linear-story telling and sligthly annoying characters, the enjoyment it offers in return far overshadows its flaws. Final Fantasy has a tradition of reinventing themselves each time, and I think they did a wonderful job. It is not their best game, but I'm glad they tried out new gameplay mechanics. I, for one, wouldn't like to play the same type of game over and over again, with only the FF title changing. I think it's interesting to adapt to new mechanics each time, as long as they work. And they do. It just takes a while to unlock the full potential. My advice is: stick around, for it will reward you in the end.
