BioWare Head: FF XIII "May Be On The Bottom Of My List"

In a recent interview with Game Informer, BioWare figureheads Ray Muzyka and Greg Zeschuk expressed reservations about Final Fantasy XIII. "I've been reading some reviews on that one. That may be on the bottom of my list right now," said Muzyka in reference to his queue of must-play games. "It's kind of a question mark. It would have been right up there before I read about it, but some of this other stuff is probably more pressing."

Zeschuk chimed in, adding "It's really interesting. They're trying to do something different, which is admirable, but it's hard. They also had a very long development cycle. They may have been aiming at a real interesting spot at one point, but then too much time goes by. Not only are there a lot of games, but they are coming out fast."

We'll be curious to hear what the Mass Effect 2 and Dragon Age: Origins creators have to say about the game once they get around to playing it.
