…by any other name… (Final Fantasy XIII)

If Final Fantasy XIII were named Ultimate Illiad and made by a company that wasn’t Square Enix, it would not have been reviewed nearly as well as it has, nor would it be as controversial as it has.  Unfortunately, I’ll never find out whether all of the Internet Rage is justified.  After reading Christian Nutt’s sprawling review, I’ve decided I’m not going to play it.  Parts of the review cover game mechanics I literally can not comprehend.  And if said mechanics make up a battle system that many claim is the games one good aspect, I’m done.  The story seems to be meandering and hard to digest.  If those two things aren’t worth the effort in an RPG, then the game simply is not worth what limited time I have.
