I would call it Final Fantasy XII Lite, but even that label would be far too generous. A complete regression in terms of gameplay design - (no more seamless battle transition with enemies on the field, a dumbed down less in-depth AI system and less control over the party than ever before) - is not something you often see in any gaming series, although Final Fantasy has never been particularly consistent in its quality. Even so, it is as if Square Enix are trying to drag the series down to the bottom of the JRPG barrel. I understand Dragon Quest was getting lonely down there, but this is just embarrassing.
Final Fantasy XIII fanboy: ZOMG its gonna be the best RPG EVAR.
Rational Final Fantasy Fan: What, because it is a complete backstep compared to XII? Or because the visuals are completely underwhelming? Or because the voice acting from the trailers actually sounds atrocious?
