5.0 out of 5 stars A different approach, sitll the same excellence, 6 Mar. 2004
This review is from: Final Fantasy X-2 (PS2) (Video Game)
I bought FFX-2 with mixed reviews in my head. Many people had slated it for being a 'cash in' by square-enix. Others had said it was a desperate attempt to grab a more female audience. The positive reviews had said what i expected. Great visuals, gameplay and simply another superb Final Fantasy game.
I have now owned the game for 4 days and managed to rack up 9 and 1/2 hours of gameplay so i think i am about poised top add my own review to this collection.
Firstly I would like to set aside whatever square's reasoning was to make a sequal or a more female orientated game. Firstly i don't see why they need a 'cash in' as Final Fantasy 11 is out in japan (doing well) and FF12 is set to be released here soon, Q3! Secondly (and i dont want to appear sexist here) but I think this game is too complicated... no... deep for a female audience. GENERALLY women would prefer light hearted gaming and not one of the most deep and enthralling RPG series ever.
Now to the game itself. (im not going to tell you anything about the actual story line as i dont want to spoil it for FF fans) The game is mission based but still carries a good story line that is very intreeging. The mission based idea isnt new, it has been implemented in FFtactics on the PsOne, and FF tactics advance on the GBA, so it isnt 'unloyal' to the FF series.
Secondly there is a new gameplay system that is slightly more simple than others but is still involving enough t satisfy hardcore FF gamers like moi. It involves dressspheres and gamernt grids. The idea of different clothing to show different jobs within your party is also employed in FF tactics advance.
I have simply a closing statement to make. If you are a die hard FF fan then i suggest you buy and you WILL NOT be dissapointed. If you are a bit dubious or bothered about the 'gril power' element of the game then maybe you should rent it first.
It gets a five star rating from me. Final Fantasy has added another superb game to the series.
