    A Sensational Scapegoat of Reality of Storytelling

    Final Fantasy XIII-3 story takes over all elements of gameplay and epic features of Final Fantasy XIII-3. This final fantasy is a continuation from the first final fantasy XIII. This is unusual in any final fantasy beca... Read Full Review

    This game, and the entire Final Fantasy XIII trilogy of games, really is just the worst game and the worst trilogy, with the worst characters, especially Lighting, who is the worst of the worst. Worst worst worst. Worst ... Read Full Review

    A Final Fantasy, this is not. An action RPG, this is! (NO STORY SPOILERS)

    Having followed Final Fantasy from its humble beginnings on the NES, I must say, Square-Enix has evolved the series time and time again. I am definitely a big fan of this developer, always looking forward to the di... Read Full Review

    Nice idea, could be better.
