How many smaller games must Square sell in order to generate the proper budget for FF13?

pSYCO-gAMER321April 02, 2008

Say wha? I got this game when I  went to Japan a while ago and payed $56! Well played Square... well played...

So is this a dungeon crawler, or is it a solid RPG experience?

animecyberratApril 02, 2008

who cares it FF and it has Chocobos what more do you want?

Dungeon Crawlers eat me for breakfast.

But I've actually heard that this is an "easy" dungeon crawler. If so I do plan on considering buying it.

animecyberratApril 03, 2008

when you say Dungeon Crawler do you mean like Eye of the Beholder or Baluders Gater or something like that or do you mean something like Zelda? I guess I am unfamiliar with the term.

If you have ever played Diablo I or II, then there you go. If you haven't, I suggest you do as I would argue it's the best Dungeon Crawler around (and one of my personal favorite games).

So kinda like Balders Gate then?

Never played Baldur's Gate, but yes.

Umm... I was thinking more along the lines of Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team Red or Blue?

Yes, like Baldur's Gate, but with one big difference: they said it's turn-based.

animecyberratApril 04, 2008
