Final Fantasy XIII Denied Perfect Score: “Too Linear”


Gaming rag Famitsu’s review of Final Fantasy XIII has proven something of an upset, with the game getting 39 of 40 instead of the expected 40, due to the game’s story being “too linear.”


In all other respects the game is said to be exemplary.

Considering that in the last 2 years Famitsu has awarded more 40 point scores (7) than in the preceding 10 years combined, it seems likely Famitsu either felt it had gone overboard or Square neglected to be generous enough with its advertising spending…

The Japanese release is not far off.
