Final Fantasy XIII - Square Enix v.s. Resonance of Fate (End of Eternity) - Tri-Ace Sega

American/Euro Release dates : 3/09/10(both)

Well I've been talking to my friend about (who is Japanese/Chinese) Final Fantasy XIII and he has bought and played and beat the Japanese version of ffxiii and so I asked him about it (this guy is a hardcore gamer too) he said that buying xiii was waste of money and playing it was a waste of time, if I remember correctly he told me he beat the game in 2-3 days, there is no leveling system, and the game is like 70% cinema and he told me that if it wasn't for the Xbox this game could've been better. He flat out told me not to buy this game.

After hearing all this, I rethought my decision on buying this game (I was so excited too!!!), and started to look for another game and came across Resonance of Fate(End of Eternity), at first, I just glanced at it and then flipped the page, but then I did some research on this game, the more I researched the more I got excited, watched some trailers, clips and interviews, there was so much customization, and supposedly 80hrs+ game play time and the storyline looks really good. And also got a chance to play the demo and it was really fun. So I'm changing my decision from buying xiii to buying RoF.


I would like to hear the peoples' opinion!!! Your opinion!!!

I found out the exact same thing you did. I asked my friend how long it took him, and he said 4-5 days. He works 8 hours a day, so that hardly leaves him much time.. he did say that it was disappointingly short. I was a little worried about that, but to be honest I haven't played a FF game that has ever looked that good. If there is a lot of cinema, all I can hope for is a good plot. If it had a lot of cinema and a terrible plot, I probably wouldn't buy the game (oh who am I kidding, i'd still buy it... just grudgingly). What's the difference between the PS3 and Xbox version? I still can't decide what I should buy it for.

I'm going to let YOU play RoF first.. and then I will ask you how it went hehe.. that's what i'll do. :-P

Well I hear the leveling system is more along the lines of FF10's system. Apparently there will be loads of extra content for those who wish to have a challenge beyond beating the game. Remember that FF10 and to a lesser extent, 12 had great bonus battles that were much more difficult than the final boss. And don't forget FF7 (took me 2 days to beat it) had the insanely tough Weapons to fight.

I am actually looking forward to the game, even if it is 70% story and cut scenes. After the ultimate let down of 12's plot (despite having a great battle system) I welcome the change. If you check youtube, they have posted video clips of the entire game. You can check a few of these out to get an idea of the leveling and amount of action vs story (though I am sure later clips will have spoilers). And they are in Japanese.
