Many would say that the story of Final Fantasy XIII is a little dense, to put it kindly. Sometimes all you need to do to make a complex story more comprehensible is to strip it of all the excess plotting and themes and boil it down to its essence. At least that’s the theory that would explain this retrospective by Square Enix.
So is it all clear now? Does the epic, multi-millennium spanning tale of Lightning and her cohorts make sense now? If the mid-90’s era sprite graphics and the chiptune de-make of Hamauzu’s music didn’t simplify it any, it’s rather safe to say that nothing will.
Hopefully this retrospective will help those gamers on the fence concerning Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII who now can’t use the excuse that they didn’t know what happened in the first two games. Lightning Returns comes out for the Xbox 360 and PS3 on February 11th in North America and February 14th in Europe.
