Final Fantasy XIII-2
Could've been a 10
I'm a huge fan of the Final Fantasy franchise and this game, as well as it's predecessor "FFXIII", definitely brought a new flavor to the title. I recommend playing the first one before jumping into the sequel for the continuity of the storyline.
Some elements in battle have changed from the original, but not necessarily for the bad. The paradigm fighting still exists, but the one thing I miss the most is the fact that the monsters are visible before you get too them. They incorporated an old school element commonly found in turn based RPGs in that the enemies don't spawn until you're in their immediate vicinity. This only saddens me because of how beautiful the scenery is and the lack of wildlife in whole scope of things.
This being said the game still warrants much attention too all facets of gamers and even those who consider themselves among the elite.
this game is great, great story great combat, great chac's and music :D i reccomed this game !!!!!!!
Wow just amazing
This game blew me away amazing graphics gameplay everything is just fantastic. Final fantasy xiii bore me to death but this game got me sucked in after 5-10 hours of playing it monster hunting is really fun it will be really hard to turn off the game when you have it. It is intense just simply amazing.
Really all these 10s? Has any of you actually played the old FF games? Seriously this game is junk as was the original their killing Final Fantasy franchise. The combat in this game is simply garbage beyond all comparison to previous FF games. They have dumbed this game down so much in recent years its little more than a joke to real JRPG lovers. Go play Lost Odyssey its 10x better than this joke. Hironobu Sakaguchi created that game do any of you who gave this game above a 6-7 even know who he is? He's the father of Final Fantasy who left square ENIX long ago.
Graphics dont make a game people period. Just as this game doesnt deserve to have the FF franchise label. This games sales in Japan bombed compared to its original thank god Japanese gamers are finally starting to reject this failed series. Now be kind and hit the thumbs down button tools.
At first when I got this game I was expecting a direct continuation of FF XIII, but after popping the disc in and playing it for 1 minute I was lost, and even with about 15 hours into the game I am still a bit lost, just not as much as I was from the start. The controls are just like XIII, some small changes have been made, not much though. You can go back in time and into the future in the title. So the story will jump around as you attempt to figure out what happened. Serah is the only character from XIII that is playable. The storyline is good, a bit confusing, but that can help make you want to play it, so you better understand what is happening in the game. No use of many characters in the title like XIII, you can "trap" and "tame" enemies in this one and use the special abilities to assist you in battles. The look and feel of XIII is all here, so if you liked XIII, chances are good you will like this game as well. It is NOT a direct continuation from XIII, according to the story, there is a 3 year gap in between XIII and XIII-2. I would recommend this game to anyone who like the XIII and to any Square Enix or RPG fan that likes "free roam" abilities in RP games.
WAY BETTER THAN FINAL FANTASY XIII
I PLAYED BOTH VERSIONS AND OF COURSE THIS ONE CAME ON TOP. NOEL AND SERAH ADVENTUROUS JOURNEY TO FIND LIGHTNING IS AWESOME I NEVER IMAGINED IT WILL BE SO GOOD
now this is a game that everyone should play
Everything is great aobut this game alot of you say its not a Final Fantasy game UR WRONG its a Final Fantasy game but diff story :D BUY IT NOW its only 19.99 for the game
this game is awsome.
would reccommend it to everybody it s a great game.its also helps time pass by. when i first started playing it i couldn't put the controller down i was up for 24 hours non stop playing it.
This game series has been awesome but the rock is here. This fails to impress. The big problems are still here while the little ones are gone. This game not as its predecessor that is a run around in a world and kill stuff. It is now like walk down this hallway and take it slow and kill stuff. Plenty of FPS drop outs. This game is appropriate for 11 and up.
the story is alright the graphics are excellent but the story is much shorter than ff13 other than that the ending sucks
