[i]Note: I am intentionally avoiding using the official terminology for the game in all of these posts to avoid confusion.[/i] [QUOTE] Here's a question: does each character feel unique? One of the things I did not like about...say...FFVIII or X was how you could pretty much make any character do anything. You kind of implied that XIII's battle system did that as well. I prefer VI, VII and IX for the fact that each character was unique and had abilities that were unique, thus making me want to take the time for them to improve. [/QUOTE] The characters are customizable, but unique within those customizations. I mean, the characters are more unique than VII, that's for sure. In VII, I had a team of three attacker-healer-mages. No character could do anything much better than the others. In XIII, each character has three main "jobs". [b]No two characters have the same set.[/b] Some are hybrid characters (Lightning is attacker/healer/mage) and some are polarized (Hope is mage/healer/buffer). At the end of the game, you can try to make Hope into an attacker, but he'll never be good at it. Even characters that have hybrid classes are unique about them. For example, if you want to do magic with Fang (I can't imagine why, though), she is a debuffer. Some of those spells can be used for damage, but they're like...curses and such. Not normal elemental magic. Even when characters share a class, they learn different moves. For example, Sahz's buff spells are offense-based (haste, attack up, adding elemental damage to a weapon), while Hope's are defense-based (defense up, elemental defense). For that reason, I used Sahz for most of the game. Hope eventually does learn attack up and haste, but he never learns the different elemental buffs, just how Sahz never learns the elemental defenses. Also, each character has a unique summon with totally unique attacks and animations related to it. I hope this all makes sense. I'm trying to be thorough without rambling too much. And... [QUOTE]Never has a man nipple been so precisely crafted in any videogame ever. [/QUOTE] [b]No kidding.[/b] I kind of wish more people had taken their shirts off, even if it resulted in "the most precisely crafted middle aged black man chest hair in any videogame ever."
