My time with Lightning Returns simply felt much better than the last two. Lightning returns has the combat system the series was meant to have, the culmination of schemeta(s) and abilities perfectly replace the role systems of old. This game drops you in and lets you go, while there is Hope to hold your hand from time to time, I found myself consistently muting him out to enjoy Nova Chrysalia.
There is a recommended route (as shown on the Lightning Returns official site http://www.lightningreturns.com/basics/hints,) just like you could find in a wiki on Dark souls, but once you master the combat system, you can challenge strong enemies early, once you master the games systems you can take on the area(s) bosses without fear.
This game is easy game to get really into for the simple fact that you're setting constant goals. Time management isn't stressful, power progression feels nice and at times power spikes may seem a bit too high, but eventually even that power will be challenged. My words don't feel organized and that I feel is a reflection of my first play-through, currently on Day 9 and am enjoying XIII-3 very..very much.
I can't say enough about the sheer amount of customization, sure MANY players may end up having similar styles, but the sheer variety, multiple weapon types, finding synergy with abilities, searching for new gear. And it all feeds into the fact that this is the first single player Final fantasy that promotes competition through its in-game Otherworld system.
