mas superior pa rin ba ang 1st FFXIII? para sakin kasi yung XIII-2 downgrade ang graphics at framerate di gaya ng XIII na smooth talaga.

I'm not the one who can answer this best but one look at the demo it seems that XIII has better graphics/framerate. Disappointing ang XIII-2 pagdating diyan, halatang-halata sa final scene dahil yun lang ang pre-rendered.

Tama, mas maganda pa rin graphics ng FF13 kesa dito. Medyo pixelated pa nga yung ibang textures. Pero maganda parin yung Opening CG.

I believe mas maganda talaga ang graphics ng FF13 because during that time exclusive game pa eto. FFXIII-2 naging multiplatform na at para mangyari yun nagdowngrade sa graphics para masupport ang X360. Since ang lightning returns is available din sa X360 same din ang ginawa from FFXIII-2.

Multiplatform din yung FF13 sir. Kaya siguro mas maganda graphics nun dahil na sa ilang years din development nung game compared sa 2 years for FF13-2 :grin:

Sabay din yung release date, nasa development talaga ng XIII yung difference. XIII-2 seems rushed and milked, pati monster sprites ni-recycle.

ay oo nga sir hehe multiplat na nga rin pala ang FFXIII... yeap I agree, siguro dahil sa sobrang tagal ng development ng FFXIII kaya swabe talaga ang graphics.

pati pinagkasya sa isang DVD disc ang FF13-2 for X360 kaya nacompromise ang graphics, pati tuloy PS3 nadamay.

yung FFXIII naman kasi nung una palang it's meant to be exclusive sa PS3, focus talaga sila sa PS3 from the start, rush nalang yung 360 version kaya inferior yung 360 version. parang kabaligtaran sya ng Bayonetta sa 360. ang di ko lang talaga nagustuhan sa XIII-2 yung tadtad ng paid DLC. sana sa XIII-3 minimize na, yung bang ang DLC dapat ay expansion. pero mukhang milky parin eh dun sa mga pinakitang costumes.

Makes sense why FFXIII still has superior graphics than the two. But I really enjoyed XIII-2 as well. Actually natuwa ako sa Pokemon-style nung 3rd character. It's one of those games na naparami akong biniling DLC (Lightning, Snow, etc) and actually enjoyed the purchase! For Lightning Returns, not sure if I'm willing to pay for extra costumes though. :(

I think this is the main reason. Isa rin ito sa dahilan kung bakit kokonti yung mga pre-rendered scenes sa FFXIII-2.
