Final Fantasy XIII: Initial Impressions

Okay yeah, I told myself I wasn’t, but I went ahead and bought FFXIII anyway. What can I say, I’m a Final Fantasy junkie! I just thought I’d make a post about my initial impressions of the game. I’m about, oh 2 and a half hours into it, and have no idea what the percent of the total game that is so yeah. What I can tell you that story wise, it’s everything I’ve come to expect from a Final Fantasy. I’m not going to elaborate too much, mostly because I’m still in the dark about a lot of things. I can say though that I am in love with Lightning. What is it about tough cold chicks that make them so attractive?? I can also see that they really did turn her into a female Cloud. The way she acts and talks is almost spot on when it comes to Cloud, although when it comes to her sister she’s more emotional than I think Cloud would be.
As far as the big issue, the linearity the game, I can totally see why people would be put off by it. It’s pretty much, follow the path laid out for you. However, I play Final Fantasy games almost strictly for the story and presentation, so I can honestly say the linearity doesn’t bother me one bit. The graphics are damn good I might add. I should note that I’m playing the 360 version, but honestly I’ve seen the difference, and in my opinion, people who compare and bash the differences are either just PS3 fanboys, or are just wayyy too OCD. I swear, people now day’s are so fucken critical of every little thing it makes me want to puke sometimes.
Anyway, check back later when I finish the game for my final verdict!
