Final Fantasy XIII doesn't come out until Tuesday, March 9th, but X-Play's Rob Manuel deeply immersed himself in the epic role-playing fantasy for many, many to provide you with a review of the massively single-player game. A choice quote:
"Final Fantasy XIII isn’t a weekend rental, it’s a commitment. Sure, that sounds obvious to any fan of the blockbuster role-playing series, but Square Enix’s dramatic changes to its formula will prove jarring to many longtime fans. Not everyone will enjoy being thrust into a world of chaotic action and feverish flipping of menus. Don’t get me wrong, the new battle system is more of an evolution of previous systems rather than a cheap gimmick. But even as a longtime fan of the series, I wonder how others will come to terms with so many drastic changes. I, for one, grew to truly enjoy it."
