Watch Us Play Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII

Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII was released last week in Japan. As we've noted before, Lightning Returns is a massive departure from the previous games in the XIII series with fast-paced action and an open world to explore. But how does it work in action? Check out our video to find out.

Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII was released on November 21, 2013 for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in Japan. It will be released in Australia on February 13, 2014.


    Conversely just download the demo on the Japan PSN and see how it plays for yourself

    I just figure it can't be any worse than the other 2.

      If you want to spoil it for yourself, look up the ending. It's the final nail in the coffin.

        Can't be any worse than the ending of 13-2.

          It can't be worse then the characters teleporting to Earth and Lightning retiring in France?

          Don't jinx it. For all we know it could have an overly happy ending where everyone is reunited and loose ends are left everywhere

    I personally love the ff13 titles, especially the soundtracks. Never really understood what all the crying was about.

      The crying is about the terrible writing and characters mainly.

    The more I hear about the combat and questing system, the more it feels like a Monster Hunter/Ragnarok Odyssey style grindfest/farmfest. It's first week sales aren't that encouraging either.
