The video game developer Square Enix has decided to give one of its best franchises another chance at bringing in sales.
This week gamers were honored with the release of Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII for the both the Xbox 360 and PS3. Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII is the final story in the trilogy of Final Fantasy XIII games.
The most recent entry has already gained great reviews. Just like its predecessors, Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII is meant to be enjoyed by anyone willing to give it a chance.
Final Fantasy XIII is the thirteenth story in a series of video games created. You do not need to play any Final Fantasy prior to No. XIII to understand this particular tale, because each entry is a completely different story.
If you are still with me, Final Fantasy XIII, although a stand-alone series, is also part of a trilogy. The first is the original Final Fantasy XIII, then Final Fantasy XIII-2, and the final game is Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII. To fully appreciate the last installment to the fullest, you will need to have played the first two but it is not mandatory in order to enjoy the latest game.
The purpose behind all of these titles is to tell a story about how a group of people with different backgrounds and various abilities come together to save their world.
This epic story is told through the traditional role-playing style of video gaming, which means you can customize gameplay and character roles to your personal liking.
Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII centers around a female protagonist who is in a future fantasy universe set on correcting the wrongs done by a certain evil presence in her world. She carries a sword and can use magic to fight anything that opposes her.
Even though the first game has a solid ending, the developers continue to find ways to release sequels. Square Enix has announced that this will be the definitive end to this drawn-out story.
Storyline aside, Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII has addictive gameplay, interesting characters, detailed weapon customization and a high replay value.
I recommend this game to anyone because of the fun I have had playing this and its previous entries. Even though it is considered role playing, this game embodies action, adventure, drama and some puzzle solving. It is an excellent title, worth picking up.
