Final Fantasy 13 review

Waw 13 Final Fantasy games. Has there really been that many? I only own 2 of them and i borrowed the 13Th. I have Final Fantasy 9 and 10 and dear me there is allot of differences between the 2. FF9 was on the PlayStation and the characters where really small and stumpy like little hobbits. I used to play it and have absolutely no idea what was going on .It was waaaaaaaay to complicated with all the different spells , weapons , antidotes , crystals and that sort of stuff. In battles i used to just keep pressing down the X button and hoping for the best. More often than not that would actually win the battle. I hated the fact that every time you took a step forward a flashing light would come on because you've stumbled onto an enemy that you now have to defeat. What the hell is this, Pokemon? Anyway if you don't defeat them then you wont be strong enough to defeat the boss and move on with the levels. I don't think there was actually any game play in the whole thing there was just endless battles. The sad thing is you don't get to catch them in a pokeball at the end either you just get the pride of winning. There was 4 whole discs of this and i got abut half way through the 1st one and lost the will to live. Sure the graphics were amazing for that time and it was fun being able to name the characters whatever you wanted (in my case it was often poo and bum so the story line could be allot more interesting...i was a sick child) but as for the game it was just too boring for words.

FF10 however was allot better. This was on PlayStation 2 and the graphics were amazing. I always found Tidus annoying but i suppose you grow to love him as the game goes on. As annoying as i found Tidus words cant describe how annoying Yuna was, Her voice was enough to agitate me. Anyway the games story line was what made this game so great. Take that away and your back to Final Fantasy 9 with the endless battles. I mean for god sake there's only so many health potions you can go through. Anyway again i never finished the game although i got allot closer to the end than FF9.

Looks like a skipped 2 games and went straight to Final Fantasy 13. Now its out on the Xbox360 and the graphics are unbelievably amazing! I love the characters (nobody is annoying me yet) and i love the story line and you don't get that annoying flash of light that tells you that you've stumbled on an enemy, Instead you can actually see when there's an enemy approaching because it will be there in front of you. Another thing i like about this game is that when you are battling an enemy you don't have to take turns in attacking each other anyone can just go for it and beat the shit out of each other at free will. As well as this everything is allot less complicated then the other games and i understand where i am and whats going on. However despite this being a definite improvement on the other games i still find an enemy every 5 seconds or so. Its annoying and basically all the level are the same just with different enemy's. There's 4 discs of this game and I'm not sure I'm going to Finnish it but I'm hanging in there and giving FF13 a fair shot. So far it's going well.
