The Final Fantasy XIII trilogy reaches its stunning conclusion. With Gran Pulse sinking into the sea, only 13 days remain until the world's end, and it's up to Lightning to save as many souls as she can. With stunning environments, a constantly moving world, an overhauled battle system, and plenty of character customization, Lightning Returns is a fitting end to an epic saga.

This game is an absolutely brilliant end to the XIII series. This game is focused around the end of the world with an emphasis on family and love. At the end of this game, I had tears running down my face. The storyline, the artwork, the characters stories was simply beautiful. I can’t wait to see more final fantasy games like this from square enix.

First off, I suggest you play the first two parts of this game.
Final Fantasy XIII and Final Fantasy XIII-2. Then come back and read my review. I won't give spoilers....
If you've played both of those, this wraps up the story of Lightning very nicely. It's interesting, and pretty fun to play, and even if you make mistakes with gameplay, you can still pretty easily make up for it! I really enjoyed playing Lightning Returns, it's not like most RPG's. You do a lot of quests / missions to help people, there's plenty of fighting bad guys, and loads of fun along the way. The main thing is, it brings a very lovely end to the whole Final Fantasy XIII story, in a fitting manner.

While I normally love all of the Final Fantasy games, this one really isn't doing it for me. The graphics, like always, are really beautiful and the storyline is interesting but the whole time crunch aspect really bothered me for some reason? It definitely keeps you interested but I normally gravitate towards the other Final Fantasy games over this one when I'm looking to replay something.

Its a very interesting game with the feel of some of the older final fantasies. The one thing I didn't like was not knowing what I should do first when you get towards the middle of the game. The battle system is really cool but I wasn't a fan of all the outfit changes bullshit. I did love seeing all the old characters again and it did sum up the story for those disappointed in ffxiii-2 ending.

I gave four stars because Final Fantasy VII is still the best. I feel that the worlds needs to be more open.It would nice if the environment was affected by your movements and actions, which it is not. Yes it is a game worth replying. Rpg players checkout this game.
