Reviews for the next Final Fantasy game is out online. Did it being less linear help? It certainly looks that way. Its been getting decent scores from critics and has a slightly lower metascore against its predecessor in Metacritics.
It sounds like it's still a great RPG in its own right. It still presents problems but it looks like Square Enix is heading for the right direction this time. I played the demo of 13-2 and it was not the Final Fantasy game for me. I'll say it again, Final Fantasy XIII just ruined it for me and I have no plans in hitting its sequel any time soon.
