Final Fantasy XIII: Review Scores Say Wait and See

It looks like the jury is out on Final Fantasy XIII and the court of public opinion has never been this divided on a Final Fantasy title (not counting derivatives).  Most of the reviews highlight that the game plays babysitter for the first 25 hours of game time and while it eventually opens up, it’s a case of too little too late.

The guys over at Wired’s GameLife gave it a 6/10, EDGE gave a 5 out of 10 (!), GameSpy 4.5 stars out of 5 and Gamespot an 8.5.

Not too long ago, most people would state that they purchased a PS3 in order to play FF XIII. My reason for buying the PS3 was simply due to wanting a modern-day console; besides, there are just so many hours a Nintendo DS can captivate you.

In any case, I think I’ll wait it out until the game hits the 2nd hand market. I don’t see the game getting rave reviews like that of Demon’s Souls, so maybe, just maybe, the resale value wouldn’t be as high as From Software’s magnum opus.
