When Final Fantasy XIII came out and it wasnt the second coming of JRPGs, it took a lot of flak. But now that its been almost a decade since its release, maybe we can look at Final Fantasy XIII with more gentle expectations. No, it isnt the next Final Fantasy VII. Its not one of the best entries in the series. But Final Fantasy XIII is still a fun and beautiful RPG that doesnt deserve as much vitriol as it receives.
