Now, if আপনি all know me, আপনি would know that I প্রণয় video games. Normally, I only review video games that আপনি can play online. Well, there was that Saints Row: The Third review, but lets not talk about that one… Ever again. But, I am making an exception, so I can review the greatest Square Enix RPG on the Xbox 360, and that game is Final ফ্যান্টাসি XIII- Ha ha ha ha, oh fuck no. That game was awful. But, seriously, we’re talking about Infinite Undiscovery.
Now, this game came when PS3 was getting a fuckton of RPGs. Sure, Xbox had Fable 2, but that was only one RPG, whereas PS3 had a whole bunch. And slaughtering an entire village is only fun for so long. But, then came Infinite Undiscovery, XBox’s answer to the PS3 RPG’s. Like I said, this game was made দ্বারা Square Enix, and if আপনি remember that their other XBox RPG was Final ফ্যান্টাসি XIII, আপনি can easily understand why my hopes for this game weren’t too high. But, actually, the game is a lot of fun.
The game center’s around Capelle, a pathetic and cowardly flute player who is saved দ্বারা a ব্রেভ girl named Aya, and she saves him because she mistakes him for Sigmund, who is known as the Liberator and is saving the world from the Order of Chains. The Order of Chains is a group that wants to connect large chains from the earth to the moon, in order to gain the power from the god that lives on it. However, when a chain is placed, monsters surround it and cause disaster wherever they go. What makes this game fun is the massive open world. It is easily one of the most beautiful games I have seen on the XBox, প্রদর্শিত হচ্ছে আপনি large environments and a large landscape. I really প্রণয় this beautiful world to explore.
Now, lets talk about the characters. Of course আপনি have Capelle, Aya, and Sigmund. Then there is Edward, who is jealous of Capelle because he gets আরো attention from Sigmund then he does. Then there’s Eugene, who is a high priest. Then there’s Balbagan, who is a very heavy hitter. Than there is Rico and Rucha, and…. Well, they’re little kids, but they’re not as bad as most little kids in games, so that’s a plus. Then there’s Michelle, who is a very helpful nurse. Then there’s Gustav, who’s a FUCKING BEAR! Then there’s Komachi, who is a ninja. Then there’s Touma, also a ninja. Then there’s Vic……….. I don’t like him. Then there’s a bunch of other characters that are too much to count. Now, that’s all fine and good, but how does the story work. Well, to tell আপনি the game, I need to point out a lot of parts of the game, so… there are minor spoilers.
So, once Capelle is saved দ্বারা Aya, he then joins her, along with Sigmund, Edward, Eugene, and Balbagan, who are the only party members at the moment. Once আপনি get to the camp, আপনি are told that Aya is sick, and the only way to help her is for Capelle to carry her to the nearby village. This, however, is one of the bad mission designs. আপনি are making us carry a major character, taking away our ability to fight at the moment, and we’re only ten মিনিট into the game. This is a problem because there is no sense of urgency অথবা rush. আপনি just run across a field, and avoid enemies. This would have been much better if it was done at a later portion of the game. But, running away from a giant dragon, I will admit, is pretty cool.
After Capelle gets Aya to the village, আপনি will then be able to recruit Rico and Rucha. After that, you’ll have to help the village while Aya heals. আপনি help them দ্বারা going into the villages shrine and to find Rico and Rucha’s father, who is the village priest. Here is where I had to use a walkthrough. Once inside, you’ll find a door that tells আপনি আপনি need Bats Wings and Snake Fangs. Of course, আপনি can’t just give the items to the door. আপনি have to use Rico’s পেংগুইন March spell to mind control an enemy to follow আপনি to the door, and hope আপনি get there in time before the spell wears off. After that, আপনি will get to fight the games first boss. It’s not too hard, and not too challenging, so I’d say it’s okay, দ্বারা first boss standards anyway.
After আপনি finish your business here, আপনি will then head to দুর্গ Prevant. Once inside, আপনি will have to fight an actual battle. It’s like something out of Lord of the Rings and I প্রণয় it. আপনি also have to use catapults to knock down the door. This scene is just awesome and I প্রণয় it. Once inside the castle, আপনি will then have to walk down a LONG corridor. I’m not joking when I say long. It actually took me half an ঘন্টা to get through it. Sure, there were some interesting parts, but JESUS, আপনি don’t have to have a দুর্গ be all corridors.
After that, আপনি recruit some new people, head to a different city, which really doesn’t have আপনি do much, and then আপনি head to Oradian Drifts, which is a huge desert that acts as the পরবর্তি overworld for you. Here, আপনি will have to head to Fayel. But first, আপনি get rid of a chain in Sapran. After that, on your way to Fayel, আপনি run into the resident of Sapran, who exited the village when the chain was placed there. Capelle then agrees to escort them back to the village. Here is something that all gamers hate. It’s a little thing called…. Escort missions. Yep, I can hear আপনি all screaming in horror. And this one is just as bad as other escort missions. আপনি have to escort a bunch of villagers who walk at a snail's pace, and it really doesn’t help when আপনি are attacked দ্বারা multiple enemies at once. It can either be really boring অথবা really annoying.
So, after আপনি get done with that, আপনি head to Fayel, not much happens, and then your on your way to দুর্গ Valette. আপনি have to go through Oradian Mountains. It is way too confusing to navigate and can get real tedious. Once you’re at দুর্গ Valette, you’ll have to go through a series of puzzles, which are really creative (Most of the time) and can be real fun if you’re a puzzle অনুরাগী like I am. After that, we get another boss fight, that I can’t talk about too much without spoiling the game, and that is the end…… Of disc one. This game came with two discs, so now we must সরানো on to the সেকেন্ড disc. Here, আপনি will have to head to Port Zala, which has a very interesting boss. Instead of killing the boss, আপনি have to attack the Chain. I really like the turn of battle strategies in the সেকেন্ড disc
After that, আপনি head to Kolton, which is under attack দ্বারা these monsters called Vermiforms. Capelle can’t attack them, and the party can’t see him. Here, you’ll have to play the flute to make him visible, so the party can attack him. I really like this idea, and it is pretty cool. After আপনি killed the Vermiform, আপনি will then see that Edward is sick (Sounds familiar to me), and you’ll have to get him some medicine. Then we meet Vic……………………………. Then we সরানো to the Cobasna Timberlands. I fucking hate the Timberlands. Everywhere আপনি walk is either filled with enemies that are so goddamn tenacious and will chase you, even when আপনি don’t want to fight them, অথবা you’ll end up at a mist that will teleport আপনি to some যেভাবে খুশী fucking spot in the Timberlands, and আপনি may end up back at the fucking beginning, forcing আপনি to go through all the shit again. Also, the enemies respond whenever আপনি walk away from the area, so this is where the respawning enemies becomes a problem. After আপনি finally get out of there, আপনি will then find the guy আপনি need, head back through the FUCKING TIMBERLANDS, and then heal Edward.
After that, আপনি must head through the FUCKING TIMBERLANDS and head to Dias.
Now, if you’ve played the game, আপনি may be noticing that I left out Halgita. That’s because I can’t talk about it without either spoiling the game, অথবা not finding anything of interest to talk about. Now, after আপনি leave the FUCKING TIMBERLANDS, আপনি will then make it to Dias, which is a cave filled with large spiders. আপনি know, the enemy that seems to be in every RPG. After that, আপনি will cut another chain, and then আপনি head back to Fayel, and then the Lunar Rain- WOAH! I’m gonna stop right there. আপনি see, this is the part that is basically spoiler central. If I talk about everything here, I will spoil so much. So, I am just going to skip this part, and সরানো on to something else. Something like… Dragons. Yeah, আপনি fight a dragon…. and it’s kind of annoying, to be honest. But, after that, আপনি then head to the final level of the game, and that is the Underwater Palace… And this is where the game becomes unforgiving. Up to this point, আপনি had a fair amount of save points, and was able to stock up on equipment easily. In the Underwater Palace, there is no such thing as that. Here, আপনি will have to fight three recycled bosses in a row, which are real hard, অথবা just take too long. The only original boss is this guy who is really hard to kill, and takes far too many hits to kill. I’m not kidding when I say the Order of Chains leader has less health than this guy. And if আপনি die once, you’re going a LONG way back. So, আপনি better stock up on a lot of equipment and আপনি better be a high level. Trust me, you’ll need it. After that, we have to fight four other bosses, except these ones aren’t recycled.
After আপনি have fought all these bosses, আপনি will reach the final boss. I won’t spoil anything for you… But I will say this boss is basically the Shao Kahn of RPGs. Okay, maybe I just suck, but this guy is real hard. He has these shields that have to be destroyed before আপনি can attack him. But আপনি can’t hit them when their spinning, and he will always shooting lighting bolts at you, and he will even send shadow clones of your party members. And whatever your party members level is, then that is exactly what the clones level is. This makes trying to kill them insanely difficult. It’s best আপনি heal a LOT, and try to kill them before they kill you. After the shields are destroyed, আপনি will have to destroy আরো SHIELDS! Here, he will shoot heat seeking lightning bolts, large fireballs, energy balls that suck আপনি in, and lasers. FUCKING LASERS! After আপনি destroy the shields, আপনি can finally attack him… But not too much. He only has one attack now, and that is to launch meteors at you. But let me tell you, if আপনি let yourself get caught in those meteors, আপনি can just head right down to the courthouse, and have your name legally changed to Fucked, because that is exaclty what আপনি are if আপনি get caught in those meteors.
Yeah, it’s no doubt that this game has its flaws, like confusing riddles, tedious levels, cheap bosses, THE FUCKING TIMBERLANDS, and… well, Vic, but the game is actually amazing. The story may be confusing at first, but once আপনি understand it, it’s actually kinda good. The gameplay is also really fun for RPG lovers, and, like I ব্যক্ত before, the environments in the game are just beautiful. I can’t think of a আরো beautiful RPG- Well, that’s a lie, I can, but still. It’s beautiful. It’s not a game for everyone, I understand that, but if আপনি প্রণয় RPGs, then this is the game for you. And it’s an RPG that is certainly worth আরো of your time and money, and Final Fucktasy XIII. But, hey, that’s only my opinion. What’s Your Take
