Not all PC games have a multitude of graphics options like Crytek's Ryse: Son of Rome. The PC version of Square Enix's Final Fantasy XIII was released today on Steam and early reports show the game does not offer much in the way of configuration options.
GameSpot installed the game today and found that configurable options are limited to basic elements like difficulty, subtitles, and camera. The options you see in the image below, the Final Fantasy XIII Settings screen, represent the extent of what you can change.
What's more, we found that if you ever hit the Escape button during gameplay, the game closes and exits to Steam. More bizarrely, hitting Alt+F4 brings up a screen that asks if you want to exit the game. On top of that, Final Fantasy XIII for PC appears to be locked at a maximum resolution of 720p.
We weren't the only ones to notice Final Fantasy XIII's shortcomings on PC, as community hubs Reddit and NeoGAF are flooded commentary about the PC version. We've reached out to Square Enix for comment regarding the PC version of Final Fantasy XIII and will update this post with anything we hear back.
