I honestly thought VII was fairly underrated when I played it. But I do definitely agree about the combat system for XIII-2.
Under-rated? Every male Final Fantasy fan I've encountered raves about it. It has the most sequels and gets the most attention.
IX is under-rated, with it's tiny fanbase and minimal amount of attention. They even kept their hero for Dissidia chibified and basically like a child...
See, I figure given all the negative feedback for XIII's combat system we shouldn't see another like it.
It's so bad.
worse than that is,i can't find another FF in shop.
it's very very bad.isn't it?
The problem was more the lack of control for me. I don't like having a party and only controlling one member. I don't play games to have the computer do stuff for me. The levelling up was so linear and the combat was boring.
