been gaming FF13 all night long.  and yeah, i get what reviews are saying about how linear this game was.  it’s pretty damn linear.  but then again, FFX was just pretty damn linear as well.  but in the case of FF13, i haven’t even been in a town yet, there is no exploration just moving on forward with the story.  the game goes by the story, you don’t really trigger any events, the game triggers them for you and while the animation and graphics are nice, it kinda gets you.

like a robot just doing what you are told to do.

personally, i think it’s because of the 360 and how they had to limit how much they can actually do for FF13.

i think i’m about 15-20 hours into the game.  hopefully, there is exploration, but my guess is, it’s going to be at the end of the game before the final boss.
