I'm about 37 ish hours in, back on Cocoon. I'm a huge FF fan and after X-2 and XII as very skeptical about this game, the battle system in trailers looked like you had to be on crack just to keep up.
Everything about this game works. The characters (except angsty Hope) are awesome, the graphics are the best I've ever seen in ANY game and the story line is brilliant.
Some of the bosses are pretty tough and I just faced the last boss on Gran Pulse and was surprised how tough a mid game FF boss was (got him on the 2nd try but still, daaamnnnnn)
The game is linear, but most FF's are. I think the game could of benefitted from a world map, and towns/outposts but other than that....
I bought MAG, BFBC2, Uncharted 2, Heavy Rain and FFXIII all within 2 weeks of each other as I sold alot of old games. I shouldn't of bothered as NONE of the others are getting any play time.
The weapon system is like a mini game in itself, it's quite fun. However the higher the level weapons you have, the lower time limit you have to get 5 golden stars in battles so I'm leaving it alone until I get near the Ultimate weapons (or equivilant)
For anyone on PSN add me if ya fancy - KryBoyo
