It'd still run the whole animation the first time you used a class, as far as I remember, but it's not as if there are all that many. There was some FFT-esque cross-class skill support, too. I thought the class switching was fairly well-implemented, if a bit overpowering by nature. But the jobs certainly still had what seems to be an insurmountable issue for Square, that one or two spammable combinations always work, so there's really no reason to bother investigating anything else except as a self-imposed restriction or if you're grinding AP into all of them for the sake of it.
Haven't been following XIII much. The relatively hands-off ordering by role sounds a bit Last Remnant, but maybe not, as nothing I've happened on seems to have made that connection. The most common complaint seems to be absence of exploration-but-not-really trappings, which I'm not fussed about, so I might enjoy it. Nothing I'm going to bother buying a current-gen platform over, though, and if I don't get one soon I might as well just acknowledge that I'm skipping this crop altogether.
