On a Wednesday night back in April or March, I sat down to play FFXIII for the first time. I played for about an hour and 45 minutes. While I was excited about the game when I saw the TV commercials, I quickly found myself becoming rather unhappy with it. The gameplay, while pretty, was quite dull. The music? While it was okay, I have not found any track (so far) to be memorable. (Memorable as in, "I have GOT to get the soundtrack!", the first time I hear it. Examples: FFVIII, Chrono Trigger, Transformers The Movie)( The most annoying feature of the game... )
In summary, FFXIII = SE fail!
Edit: Also, more proof SE is just trying to milk more money from the fans rather than making quality games: Final Fantasy XIII Comes To iPhone As... An Artbook. Ya know, you could try selling an actual artbook. Like the one you did for FFXI?
