Final Fantasy XIII Review

Square Enix is ​​a company that released its last game with the name "Final Fantasy" when it was about to go bankrupt, and thanks to this game, it was saved from bankruptcy. Since the company cares about this game, it has released a lot of games with this title. One of these games is a game called Final Fantasy XIII with the amazing pink-haired Lightning as the main character.

As in most games of the Final Fantasy series, the battle system in this game is designed as a round-based battle. Even though the game has impressive three-dimensional graphics and animations, the combat system remains outdated. Under normal circumstances, a player expects the battle system of games with such high graphics and animation quality to be in real-time. However, Final Fantasy XIII has turn-based gameplay. If you are looking for more detailed information about the game, keep reading!

Gameplay Mechanics

First, it is necessary to start with the camera control. In this game, you must adjust your camera angle yourself as you progress through the levels and solve the puzzles. Also, while you move the character, the camera keeps a limited amount of your character on the dial. Secondly, it is necessary to examine the movement scheme of the game. You can control your character with the classic arrow keys. Also in the game, you must use the jumping action to cross the platforms. To save your current progress in the game, you need to use the robots floating in the air. With these robots, you can save your game or load a saved game.



When you encounter an enemy group, if you move towards them, the combat sequence starts. At the start of the Combat sequence, the soldiers on both teams turn to their sides. Although the combat sequence works with the turn-based system, there are no effects such as time lag during combat. All characters in Combat continue their idle actions. However, you must choose whether to attack or use magic.

After playing the game for a while, you will memorize which commands will trigger which actions. Thus, by issuing commands faster, you can ensure that the combats continue without any pause. For this reason, the fluency of the action is directly proportional to the player's command speed.

Bars and Commands

During the Combat, the health bar of the members of your party is displayed in green on the lower right. The red bars in the upper right corner represent the health bar of your enemies. At the bottom left is a list of commands you can give your characters. Among these commands, Attack, Abilities, and Items options are available.
