There are bits of the game I like, and it's quite addictive at times. :)

You don't get any say until about 20ish hours in. Until then you have to use the people the game tells you to, unfortunately.

Just started playing this last week. Putting in a few hours here and there and I've just gotten past the Odin battle.

I'm really enjoying it personally. Yeah it's linear as hell but that's not necessarily bad. FFX was really linear too and I loved it. Paradigms are an enjoyable way of controlling your party without having to micromanage everything and make for an interesting addition to the combat. I am looking forward to being able to choose my team though.

The Crystal based levelling system is good too. Again, it reminds me of the Sphere Grid from X.

Anyway I'm off to put some more time into this. :D

Check out some of our stuff!

Really? Phew, that was a close one then. I almost bought FFXIII for £12 in CEX the other day. Lucky escape I reckon, because that just sounds utterly gooseberry fool.

Finished this last night [story wise] and I have to say I enjoyed the last two chapters. Even though what's going on in the game is semi-sensical to me at best I did enjoy some of the obvious comparisons to the world we actually live in.

I'd give it overall about a 6/7.

It's pretty frustrating as a whole the game... there were parts I loved and parts I hated but most of the good bits were at the end. 30 hours in. It's like eating a sandwich half filled with jam and half filled with dirt.

After finishing the main story I thought - let's 100% this! Everything was going fine until I got to the point where I realised how much gil I needed.

:evil:

The other post game things were fun though.

Only 9 millionish gil to go [guessing]

At about 300,000 - 450,000 an hour. Actually... I'd rather not do the maths.

Ho hum.

Working on mastering each of the skills and doing some of the missions to make it less repetitive

Less than two hours into this.

I'm assuming there is a leveling system? I haven't noticed any form of exp earning after fights. Or indeed, any actual leveling up.

Edit: Nevermind. Crystarium.

So, after a 14 month break i've decided to revisit the game, and i've arrived at the end of chapter 11 where i fight Dahaka.. i've been trying to kill him for about 2 hours now and just got really close but i still died. This is probably happening because i play these games for the story, hence i skip most of the mindless optional battles making it borderline impossible to beat the bosses.

Do any of you fine souls have a save game you could send my way just before the fight with dahaka? I'm guessing your stats would exceed mine. I have the official primer, and have googled this loads - the save games on gamefaqs are all at the end of the game. Hope someone actually reads this.

You should just go back and grind. Or cheat and look up his battle strategy. He's one of the few bosses that I had no problem with. A synergist is a must in this fight. I used Lightning/Hope/Fang throughout the game. If you can debuff him with Fang, all good.

Cheers mayne. After about 2 hours of trying , i finally learnt how to play the game properly i.e. using dispel and dispelga at the right times. after that the boss was easy although something that PISSED me off was my battery ran out JUST as i staggered him for the third time, and instead of pausing the game it just carried on so i lost a whole stagger.

I want this game to end now, its getting way too hard now and the story is far too few, me no have fun :(
