I've reviewed the last with a "It was a disappointment" testimonal, although I still liked it in some aspects. A direct sequel was announced and I couldn't stop thinking if it would go any good or not...
It came out, I'm still playing it and since I'm over 24h of play-through, already, I believe I can write my new testimonial: it is brilliant! If you're reluctant whether you should play it or not (if you didn't enjoy FFXIII), please do! You'll be overwhelmed! Final Fantasy's wonderful characteristics are back once again!
It's not a linear playthrough, anymore -- you're free to wander around and you can do alot of sidequests that will add new info to the story,the characters are deep and have personalities (finally), even the ones that we met before are all "grown up" in terms of personality and you can get to know them even better.
Funny dialogues, deep ones too...everything we were used to. In the first couple of hours of playing, I found myself getting my eyes all watery because of the deep and emotional dialogues along with the new events.
I've finally mastered the "paradigm" battle-system. I don't know if it's because I've played with it before or if it gets better explained in this one. If you're new to Final Fantasy and if you're now playing FFXIII-2 without having playing the previous one, do no stress because this one is really well developed for that matter: lots of info about past events, characters and so on, are added throughout the story-line and will make you feel comfortable with all the events.Read more ›
The story this time is Lightning - who is praising a statue called Etro in the opening intro - has gone missing and Serah is wondering where she is with help from a new character called Noel Kreiss, who knows where she is. Lightning (a warrior goddess now) is in the future and she's in a new location for XIII-2 called Valhalla - a big futuristic city. She's too busy battling a new villian of the game called Caius Balled in that city and there's a girl with him called Yeul. Serah and Noel set out to find Lightning, stop Caius and change the future.
The game now focuses on time traveling, a new feature in the XIII-2 - which I believe this is the first final fantasy to use time traveling - called Historia Crux and this is where you'll go to place to place rather than doing that on foot or chocobo. There's different time periods in certain locations once you've unlocked them and they will look different if you go to the future or the past of that place. It's the same place, but in a diffferent time period. This is a great feature and it also has a little intro before you go to that location.
Another feature which the game also focuses on is that you can recuit monsters to join your party. There isn't no learning how to do this and it's easy. You go into battle, defeat the enemies, they turn into crystal and that monster is yours keep, but there's more than just that. You can set up their abilities, you can change their name, but you can't input your own name yourself, you only pick from pre-made names and also, you can dress the monsters up in different accessories.Read more ›
Though I do recomend playing Final Fantasy XIII before this, if you've never played a Final Fantasy title before then this is the one for you. Its not overlly hard which can be overwhelming to new gamers leaving there morale feeling low. XIII-2 uses a basic levelling up crystalasium, i recommend keeping a good balance on these.
The collectors edition is the one I got and I have to say i'm very impressed by my extras. I also go the pre-order pack too and the steel case fits nicely onto my DVD rack (which my PS3 games dont LOL)
So, sumarasing title BUY THIS GAME!

A great game for ff fans.
Maintaining the steady rate of decline in games since FFX, ff13-2 does not fail to disapoint. The game itself is similar to ff13 just with a much weaker storyline and only two main... Read morePublished on 11 Nov. 2012 by Craz
Major fan of final fantasy. Love the story but it was a bit boring at first but it gets better. Ending is a complete shock.Published on 31 Oct. 2012 by Strife92
