Final Fantasy XIII

Story:



Thirteen Centuries before the start of FFXIII, omnipotent beings known as Fal'Cie
were tasked by a great will to construct a home for humans to live in, away from
the planet of Pulse. They in turn created a floating metropolis known as Cocoon.
The Fal'Cie of Cocoon forever were tasked with defending it, but the ones of
Pulse resented it, seeking it's destruction.

Fal'Cie will often turn humans into L'Cie, humans with superhuman abilities such as
magic, who are forced to complete a set task, a Focus, or else they will turn into a
fate worse than death: Cie'th, monsters who wander in enternal pain and suffering.

Unfortunately, a few days before the start of FFXIII, a Pulse Fal'Cie was
discovered inside the coastal city of Bodhum, and the government of Cocoon has
ordered a purge of all civilians in the area to Pulse. Unfortunately, Serah,
Lightning's sister, entered the Fal'Cie and became a L'Cie.

Lightning, a woman with skilled combat techniques, overthrows the soliders on the
purge train, hoping to intercept to removal of the Pulse Fal'Cie, and hopefully
return Serah back to normal.

Gameplay:



Compared to other titles in the series, Final Fantasy XIII is far more streamlined,
as seen by the new combat system: Paradigms. Unlike previous Final Fantasies,
where you control everyone in the party, in Final Fantasy XIII, you only control the
party leader, while the others will attack based on their Paradigm.

Paradigms are essentialy temperary job classes: Commandos do physical
attacks, Ravengers do magic attacks, Sentinals defend against attacks, Synergists
enhance party member abilities, Sabateurs hinder the enemies with spells, and
Medics heal wounded allies. One thing vetrans will notice is the complete removal
of MP meters, making magic unlimited but limited to various Paradigms. This
makes the Paradigm very strategic, and keeps players on their toes. Also in
combat, commands are no longer one per person, each command takes away a
certain percentage of the ATB bar, making players think on their next actions.


Another thing vetrans will notice gone is you can't level up in Final Fantasy XIII.
In place is a new system, the Crystarium. Also streamlined is the stats, only Health,
Strenght, and Magic remain, each which can be enhanced with the new magic
system. The Crystarium is like an enhanced Sphere System from Final Fantasy X,
with the Crystarium Points you earn in battle, you add them to various areas, either
improving your stats, or granting new abilities.

Summons also return in Final Fantasy XIII, but like in FFX, they aid the summoner
in battle. But the new feature is Gestalt Mode, where the summoner rides the
summon to deal out massive damage:



Like Final Fantasy X before it, Final Fantasy XIII is mostly linear. Players will
travel along paths that often lead to cutscenes and then continue along. Fortuately,
this changes when you reach Pulse, and the classic nonlinearity the series is known
for returns.

On Pulse, you can aid Cie'th Stones in missions. Each mission sends players to
attack a group of enemies and will often recieve a small item, or new area as a
reward.

Graphics:

Final Fantasy XIII is a masterpiece in graphical design, both the futuristic
metropolis of Cocoon and the primative forests of Pulse each have unique flares
not seen in many games today, which can easily be seen in the games intro.

Sound:

If I had to choose which Final Fantasy to award "Best Soundtrack" it would go to
Final Fantasy XIII. It breathes new life into the series by avoiding the full orchestra
soundtracks the series is well known for and mixes it up with amazingly beautiful
songs that have made me sit and listen to their radiant tones.

Lake Bresha:


In the Sky That Night:


Sunleth Waterscape:


Nautilus:


Fifteenth Arch:


Pulse Overworld:


Yaschas Massif (I was shocked to hear Bossa Nova in Final Fantasy):


No Way to Live (One of the most epic songs in series history):


Can't Catch a Break (I was also suprised to hear Jazz):


Those for the Purge:



FFXIII has two chocobo themes, one classical and one modern:

Cocoon de Chocobo (J-Pop):


Pulse de Chocobo (Jazz):


Each cast has their own amazing song that suits them:

Lightning:


Sazh:


Snow (Always good to have a rock song):


Vanille:


Hope:


Fang:



Finally FFXIII has well orchestrated battle themes to add to combat:

Blinded by Light (Regular Battle):


Saber's Edge (Boss Battle):


Fighting Fate (Fal'Cie Battle):


Overall:

Although it may be linear early on, the excelent combat system and gorgous
soundtrack drive Final Fantasy XIII as one of the most unique in the series.

4/5

Re: Final Fantasy XIII

I'm sorry but your review confirmed that I would not like this game at all. It's like everything I hate about previous FFs all crammed into one.

Btw streamlined seems like another way of saying lazy. You only have three stats, you can't level up or control your party members? Am I playing an RPG or watching a slightly interactive movie? No thanks.

Re: Final Fantasy XIII

It isn't a bad game, I think the game would be too hectic if you could control everyone at once.
The Paradigms actually make combat much more strategic than the other titles.

But, I'm not saying it's the best either.

Re: Final Fantasy XIII

I'm not saying it's a bad game. I'm just saying I probably wouldn't like it. Some people liked FF8 and X so there has to be a an audience for this game.

A buddy at work has this. He hates it. His favorite was FFVIII though so he has no taste.

Re: Final Fantasy XIII

I mean, until you reach Pulse, the game is VERY boring.

I seriously don't see how VIII is a bad game.

Re: Final Fantasy XIII

Why IX? The learning skills from weapons was a toned down FFVI system.
VII was a much better title in my opinion.

My four would be:
VIII
VI
VII
IV

Re: Final Fantasy XIII

9 was the one that at least made an effort to go back to the roots a bit, it fell short I my opinion but it is my favorite post 6 ff game, even if I stopped playing about a quarter of the way into the game.

Re: Final Fantasy XIII

This looks like a lame game, no MP, almost no stats and no leveling up.

Re: Final Fantasy XIII

it's just different... my boyfriend is really enjoying it (I'm waiting for him to finish it so I that I can play). He said it took him a while to get used to it, but it seems to me that it is not the typical RPG where you can just get really strong and go around hitting without thinking much of what you're doing. There seems to be a lot of strategy needed. Also, you don't level up but you level up your paradigm things, and your weapons.
