Our videos of Lightning Returns

Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII is now available everywhere in the world and we can finally propose a bunch of videos from the Xbox 360 version of the game. Obviously made for fans of the XIII series who wanted a conclusion to the trilogy, this new episode is quite complicated to follow in terms of story. The combat system seems to be pretty interesting though, mixing Active Time Battle and real time control of the main character, but you should know that it can get really challenging pretty fast.

Doesn't look that bad. too bad the series became average compared to the older final fantasy games. still, i would love to see the trilogy on Steam.

I'm gonna take my time and let the world end, on my 1st playthrough. When I level up to become BEASTMODE, then I may actually try to save the world. That's just how I roll ya'll.

Is there still a time limit when you start a NG+?

I learned the time limited is throughout the game. Even in NG+

Hmm. Guess I'll wait for FFXV on PS4 before finally playing through a Final Fantasy.

Why do the visuals on this look much worse than FFXIII? The city looks worse than some of the cities in FFXII if they were rendered in HD. Hopefully, lightening will never return after this. FFXV is there last chance to redeam this series...

It looks like they rush released this game, because some parts of the game...the textures looks PS2 era. It's crazy to see a BETA MMO for Final Fantasy XIV Online has way better textures than Lightning Returns. Now having said that, I'm having fun with the game anyway.

Yea ... there some cases where the textures seem dated (especially if you own a next gen system) but beauty is skin deep :D

About the game


What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Activision isn't too much better, with the exception of Blizzard games. Ubisoft is maybe adapting better. (8 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I think publishers can miss the plot a bit too. I think EA is stuck between chasing trends and being stuck in sorta old ways. They need to figure out this market. (9 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth and it would work on consoles too. Elite Dangerous with it's advanced controls were still able to work reasonably well on a gamepad. Giving the game a dynamic campaign built around story elements. (10 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I think giving one publisher exclusive rights to the license was probably a mistake. Sorta putting all your eggs in one basket. (11 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth a flight sim background (Lawrence Holland). But i can't imagine disney/ea being interested in doing a game like that (13 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth Another kind of SW game i'd love to play is a space-sim kind of game. sorta like a modern take on Tie-Fighter (or the X-Wing series in general). Those were games developed by a team that came from.. (15 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I definitely worry about the focus testing approach they take and the appeal to everyone thing, but I'd also love to hear more from insiders. (19 minutes ago)
