    JRPG's have often been accused of being linear however Final Fantasy XIII has taken all movement and other choices away from the player.. The gameplay is now a sequence of cinema cutscenes punctuated by quicktime events.. The numbers and stats are just there for show.. There is 80 hours of gameplay but half of that being summonen animations and the player presses about 3-4 buttons a hour.. At least you have something to look at while waiting for your button presses.. The cinemas are the best yet on the PS3.. In fact if you want to experience the game without purchasing it than simply get a bunch of different coloured strobe lights and turn them up to maximum frequency and point them at your face while watching jap anime for 4 days straight while pushing a few buttons on your pad 3-4 times a hour.. And if you want it to feel more like a RPG than write on a piece of paper LEVEL 1 than increase the number every half a hour or so..

    Buy Demons soul or Valkyrie chronicles instead.. After the masterpiece of Final Fantasy XII i was ever so disappointed..

    This will wake JTN from his hibernation.

    erm... even tho he doesn't obviously like doing it, the OP reeeeally needs to take his medication. Everyone knows that FFVIII is the best FF game there is. duh!

    I quite like linear'ness so roll on XIII :)

    I also am quite getting round to the idea that VIII may be better than VII (after pretty much demolishing VII in 40 hours and this time feeling a little meh).

    Still, IX is best, and IV is close.

    VIII sucks massive hairy balls. Trust me I'm playing it now. So incredibly flawed it is unreal. While VII is perfect in absolutely every single way. :)

    This seems to agree with the op. No Buy.
    Considering how much JTN dislikes this person a 700 words response is guaranteed now.

    OP's frothing at the mouth a bit with his criticism. The game design doesn't bother me at all. What does bother me with FF games is the narrative, characters and scripts. All juvenile, unimaginative pish. But that's me: can't abide Japanese melodrama.

    Can't understand how anyone could like FFVIII more than FFVII. I hated the magic system, though everything else was good. FFVII is the best, then FFX. But that's in my opinion I guess!

    and the combat mechanics are broken

    and the characters are all unlikeable wankers

    but still, looked pretty for the time.
