Final Fantasy XIII-2 is currently in production with an aim for producing high quality game contents which exceed "Final Fantasy XIII" in every aspect; namely, a brand-new story which stems from the previous title as well as a battle system which has evolved further since "XIII" - and more.
From the release of the first FIinal Fantasy in 1987, this unique RPG series has continued to offer the industry's most advanced graphics, highly imaginative worlds and rich stories as it gains the highest accolades from users around the world.
She spent years fighting her destiny. With courage in her heart, she faced the false gods who ruled over people for centuries.
Her unfaltering determination changed the world. The gods were vanquished, their plans to massacre the human race destroyed. As Cocoon fell, a single pillar formed, connecting the ravaged world to the one below-Pulse, the underworld. It was the beginning of a new era.
However, she was nowhere to be found. Everyone was convinced she was gone-with the exception of her sister, Serah Farron.
Three years later-
A single meteorite falls from the sky. As spatial distortions are created, bloodthirsty monsters appear, threatening the peaceful existence of the townspeople.
In the midst of this chaos, Serah is rescued by a young man by the name of Noel. A hunter from the future, he appears in front of her with a message.
"Come with me across the boundaries of time," he says. "Your sister is waiting."
She is Lightning-protector of the Goddess who rules the realm of death and chaos. She is Serah's sister, her heroine, her savior.
I need to see my sister again.
Grabbing her weapon, Serah heads out on a journey as she takes her first step in

I was happy to see all the characters from FF13 make an appearance in this game, even if only for a short period of time. I find that the game play itself is a lot better than the one before it as on this one you have the choice to go where you wish instead of the never-go-back style of FF13, however it is much shorter than it's predecessor - I clocked it at a little over 20 hours - but still much more enjoyable. I was glad they reintroduced gil (game money) reward for battles as getting large amounts of money needed on FF13 was (in my opinion) incredibly difficult, while on this you could get a large amount from just going through the game levels and not having to go through 100's of battles to earn a small amount. The game itself - I found - was very easy, even on normal mode, you didn't have to spend vast amounts of time killing everything you see to get past any of the bosses, you 'levelled up' very quickly by just going through the game and doing the occasional side quest, the real difficulty lies after you complete the game to get the original ending.Read more ›
See, many of us have grown up with the Final Fantasy brand, we remember the opening of FFIV backed by Nobuo Uematsu's mighty score, Cloud and Aerith in FFVII and of course that laughter scene in FFX. However when FFXIII finally came out most of us discovered a series that had stubbornly refused to mature and grow up with the times. While today western RPG's from Dragon Age and the Witcher series to the Mass Effect trilogy present dark worlds inhabited by deep, complex characters, difficult storyline choices where good and evil are often blurred and multiple playthroughs are rewarded. Compared to these, FFXIII with its hateful anime/jrpg clichés, the usual mix of perky, one-dimensional characters, awful scriptwriting ("Operation Nora"), worrying ecchi relationships, villains which were designed with more thought for their wardrobe then their motivations and this is before I get to the lack of towns/shops/free choice/thirty hour tutorial and `the tube' that never-ending corridor of moving from A to B endlessly. When you can watch all the cutscenes on youtube without playing the game and feel comfortable you haven't missed anything then you know the Final Fantasy series is in trouble...
Anyway enough about FFXIII, let's talk about Final Fantasy XIII-2, well Sakaguchi, Nojima and Uematsu, the old guard of Final Fantasy are long gone, instead directing the game we have Motomu Toriyama (FFX/FFX-2) with Masashi Hamauzu (FFX) on the soundtrack and Kitase (veteran of Final Fantasy) producing.Read more ›
The RPG elements are still evident and leveling is alot of fun (Whats an RPG without leveling!) as you make your way across the Historia Crux to visit different areas at different times of history - leading to alot of different enemies, secrets and evil big bosses. This game expands on the previous installment as the group follow the evil villain - Caius - as he tries to basically destroy the world.
The game continues with the Paradigm system which in my opinion is simple and easy to use, but also makes the game difficult - shifting paradigms at the right time can be a life-saving or death-inducing decision. The characters build up through the ranks and absorb new skills. This game also has an interesting twist in that you introduce a monster to your party, and they ca also be leveled and built up to be a bad ass. These monsters are monsters you fight and then capture; they all have different abilities and styles that can help in a battle. The two main characters - Serah and Noel - also meet the characters from FF13 on their adventures - though these characters only join you momentarily or for a limited time, the game is still fun and its fun to see these characters across different timelines.
The graphics (as expected from Final Fantasy) are amazing and colourful - you can see and feel the japanese influence in the game. This game received mixed reviews on release, due to the enormity of the Final Fantasy fanbase, and whilst alot of fans don't like it, I thoroughly enjoyed it and would recommend it. IT may not be everyones cup of tea, but you never know until you try, right?

Very Good Final Fantasy Game, Can be difficult at times but with time everything can be defeated.
One of my favourite FF Games, A modern classic.
