Final Fantasy 13
Well, I just completed FF13 and I would love to share some of my opinions of this game. I still haven't gotten ALL of the trophies but I am slowly on my way to obtaining all of them and unlocking the coveted Serah theme for my PS3.
First of all, this game is graphically BEAUTIFUL (PS3 version). Most of the game music went perfectly along with the environment, ie. running around the forest as Vanille while "The Sunleth Waterscape" is playing in the background. I still cannot get over how gorgeous that part of the game is. Overall, the characters are a little transparent I think, unlike in FF10 where I feel that each and every character had a lot of depth. I really felt that I knew very little about most of the playable characters after I had finished the game. On the other hand, the storing itself is quite compelling, and even though some of the characters are lacking development. Lightning is easily my favorite character because of her serious but caring nature. At the beginning of the game she was very independent, very quiet, very self-centered but at the end of the game she shows a lot of worry and care for her comrades.
Overall I would easily give this game a 9/10! Definitely one of my favorite Final Fantasy games based on just graphics alone. Square Enix has really done it again and I cannot wait until FF15.
