6 hours in FF XIII
Finally I have been given more options, the paradigms finally came into play and they also introduced the crystarium system which is completely pointless, you might aswell just have traditional leveling up and call it a day. With that said, I will interpret it as an overglorified traditional leveling up system with a few options because of the different paradigms you can evolve, I dont see it as a negative.
The battle system is fast paced and I love that, it's basically a streamlined turn based combat system that requires constant micromanaging during the battle. It's not strategic in the traditional sense but you do need to pay attention to what's happening in the battles. It's different but familiar at the same time, I enjoy it. It's certainly very engaging, if you are one of those idiots who complains about the Auto Battle feature, guess what genius IT'S OPTIONAL.
One thing im finding weird is that in the datalog they are constantly repeating stuff, it's like they are afraid the player won't get the story. I don't understand how people were confused with the terms Fal'cie L'cie and Cieth, they made it pretty clear what each one was.
