For those wondering what exactly the title is about, Kevin VanOrd reviewed the game and scored it 5 out of 10.
Granted, I've only played the demo, but I'm glad it was the right call to make. Developers should not be punishing videogamers for exploring or taking the time to fight and try out new ideas with the outfits that Lightning is able to equip. Only a few videogames, in fact, were successful enough to use the whole "time against you" mechanic well enough to keep you going without punishing you (Majora's Mask being the one that comes to my mind off the top of my head). Now, that being said, the battle system did show a lot of promise to me and I liked the idea of having to switch my outfits so that I can attempt new strategies against whoever I was fighting.
For me, I'd rather take my time with RPGs and explore everything it has to offer without time being a factor used against me and in that sense, Lightning Returns has failed. Then again, Final Fantasy XIII and XIII-2 are major failures in my eyes, so it's no surprise that the conclusion of that disappointing trilogy was exactly that - disappointing in itself. Once again, I know that I'm judging this early based on a demo and without playing the full game, but I can't help but hate Square Enix for dumping this trash on us and making us play it while we have to wait for something better to come along.
For those who have played the demo, do you think Gamespot made the right call? If so, why or if not, why not? Discuss please!
