I didn’t even like FF13, and I played the LR demo and actually found it interesting. Then it came out and I heard how unbalanced it was, so I didn’t get it. It’s probably for the best.
Finally I get around to ranting about LR’s unbalanceness. (I like making up words.)
It’s not terribly unbalanced. The way you encounter different difficulties of monsters makes sense, and feels like a natural progress. The problem is the boss fights. You might think you’re well prepared, but then BLAM! you realize the boss fight is ridiculous compared to the enemies you had to fight beforehand. (Here it needs to be added I waited until day 6 (or was it 8?) to fight Snow, and so I was fighting Snow+, without having even visited the Dead Dunes or the Wildlands. Let’s just say I did it, but it was EXTREMELY close and I had to get a guard success rate of 90% or something.)
I didn’t like the demo, but I enjoyed the game itself. At parts it felt rather addictive. I think you’ll like it if you enjoyed the demo - it’s worth a shot. There’s a lot of mission solving though, running around finding NPC’s - I guess you could use a guide, making more time for monster hunting than the mandatory game play. The upgrading system looks pretty sweet (I just started using it) and I think once you’re done with the main storyline, there’s a lot of fun to be had.
The story is pretty meh but it has a few nostalgic tear-jerking scenes, also the storyline with Fang is pretty good.
