Final Fantasy 13 is a Joke!
The anticipated Final Fantasy 13 seems to be getting some bad criticism.
As 1 of the most reviewed game, it was awarded a pathetic freaking 40%
& for those who have played it...well lets just say that they are not to
happy spending their sushi money on a "joke" such as this. Here are the
System: 1/10 "Such a crude system barely warrants being called an RPG at all."
Scenario: 2/10 "An epic tear jerker." Graphics: 9/10 "Top marks here."
Sound: 7/10 "Mostly quality."
Enthusiasm: 1/10 "As if you could play this for 100 hours! I could put up with 8."
Total: 4/10 "To think it got this bad..."
Here's the criticism :.
The game is complete linearity until the open areas near the end. You
can’t even backtrack. Of all the RPGs I’ve played in recent years, this is the
first which has been so linear that it’s little more than riding an amusement
park ride. I had heard the opinion that "It’s amazing once you get to Chapter
11," but why should you spend 20 or 30 hours on a game to get to the only
enjoyable part? Just how do they intend to make me play this? Do they think
I’m some kind of masochist?
This reviewer goes on to say that, the game play is a button mashing puzzle game
with no real strategy or RPG elements & a plethora of annoying freaking features,
saying the game as a whole is little more than a "digital novel" of sorts. For such a
game to approach 2 million copies sold must be due solely to the strength of the Final
Fantasy brand, he opines, calling it in closing the "biggest swindle in gaming history"
plus! The "biggest joke of '09".
With such bad reviews given by critics & fellow gamers, will this be the down fall of
the fantasy's franchise's?
