Final Fantasy XIII


$60.00 Released March, 2010

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Very slick presentation. More interactive active-time-battle system isn't as slow and plodding as traditional turn-based systems. Futuristic setting looks great.

The Cons:Archaic menu-based battle system. Retains a lot of the JRPG traditions. Still some hokey/cheesy characters.

Final Fantasy XIII is the thirteenth installment in the series of role-playing games developed by Square Enix. A North American release on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 is slated for Spring 2010. Previews depict a futuristic world as setting for the signature command-based battles that Final Fantasy games have long featured.
