It wasn’t actually so late, but I did finally beat it last night. There’s more side mission stuff I’ll probably go back and do though. I’d say this is my official ranking for Final Fantasy games that I’ve beat (blasphemy I know, I haven’t beat any of the other ones).

I really really like the battle system in FFXIII but in the end the story is what made it teeter above or below FFX for most of the game. When I finished it though I decided as a whole the story didn’t come together as well so I put it below FFX. It’s tough because I I like the characters more than the characters in FFX, but I had real problems with the game’s world logic and the generous leaps in logic it seems they’re asking the player to make.

Anyway, I’ll write a full review later and post it on my blog.
