Product Description

Final Fantasy XIII-2 is a high quality game, with exceptional 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 Final 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.

Storyline:

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."

The story is absolutely amazing. The battle system is in the middle of real-time and the usual FF strategic turn based style. It's visually stunning. Everything about this game is 5 star.

I decided to skip FF13 all together, i played and absolutely loved 12 and could not wait for the release of 13 but i backed off as soon as the reviews came out for the linear gameplay, lack of exploration and dull confusing story. And after watching walkthroughs on youtube i still feel i made the right choice.

FF13-2 however is different, the story is related but not too much that it couldn't be a standalone game. There is a fair bit of explaining what happened in the previous game, this all happens via cutscenes however there is a nifty beginners primer option that explains the events of the previous game in chapters (not really needed but definitely appreciated).

Battle mechanics are almost the same excepting the addition of monsters (which is a really cool addition). I don't feel the game completely makes up for the shortcomings of FF13 but it certainly goes a long way. The paradigm system is the primary battle focus again, basically switching between different roles to accommodate the current situation in a fight (taking massive damage? You switch to a more protection/healing type paradigm, that sort of thing). The paradigms can be customized to make them more effective however the level of customization is fairly limited in options.

Unlike most FF games you will only ever have 2 party members the third party member being filled by a monster of your choosing that you have captured in a battle. To my knowledge you can tame almost anything you fight (excluding the obvious such a bosses and the like) after you defeat the foe there is a chance for you to turn it into a crystal and by doing so capture it so that it can fight along side you.

Final Fantasy XIII-2 is genuinely a good game and up there with one of the best in the series. First of, the story is probably it's weakest but it still has some good parts and the characters are likeable. Serah, Noel and Mog brought back the Final Fantasy magic that was missing from XIII. The story can get confusing and the plot is a bit semi coherent but it's still well done and the voice acting is really good. Graphics are very nice and detailed. The music I liked, especially the song 'Paradigm Shift' and 'Caius' theme'. The game play is much better this time, it's more open world and you get to do side missions as well as other stuff. The battle system is pretty easy to play, with a rather simple yet good levelling up system. The game gets cheesy and confusing but I also liked the ending to this game too.

not really an RPG fan...haven't played a final fantasy game since VII on the playstation all those years ago (but enjoyed that a lot at the time).
saw XIII-2 for a good price and am glad i bought it.

my pros:
graphics...both in game and the video sequences. both are top notch. probably the best i've seen on my ps3. the worlds and cities look stunning. draw distance is excellent. in-battle detail is overwhelming at times (in a good way) as there's so much going on at once.

controls are simple and intuitive without too many buttons to remember. characters move well and don't get stuck behind scenery etc.

dialogue isn't overly cheesy. voice acting rather nice too.

a lot of gameplay...i'm about 50% of the way through it and at 17 hours (but then, as i said, i'm no expert at these games).

my cons:
some of the quests/puzzles are incredibly non-intuitive. i've had to resort to walk-throughs online on more than a couple of occasions. there's a lot of jumping between zones...maybe more than is necessary. i've heard talk of the first one (XIII) being too linear...think that would do me just fine.

oh too frequent battles in some places. for example augusta tower 200 and academia 400. you're trying to get somewhere and are accosted by monsters every 15 metres. it makes for a rather frustrating experience at times.

so more pros than cons. felt quite comfortable despite my lack of familiarity with the genre. was levelling up my characters in no time and enjoying watching their moves get more powerful and complex. and then there's riding a chocobo...whoop!
pleased with my purchase.

I have now been playing for 37 hours, and have found the game has drawn me in and most of the time kept me entertained. To me the great aspects of this latest edition are the graphics, a much better paradigm system and, most of the time, the variation in difficulty of battles within the same area of the game. The colours and detail of the environments give some beautiful and also some very dark/threatening environments in which to follow the story. I love Moogle and his extended roles, I have been moogle throwing all over the place and received some great items as a result of him entering areas I cannot reach with the 2 main characters. Here is a hint - in Academia (4XXAF) I threw him at the new model of Cocoon and got a silver chocobo to fight with, but I don't know if this will work for everyone. I recommend everyone just keeps throwing him into holes, over buildings etc - it is worth it.

I have really enjoyed playing most of this, however personally I have found it has certain aspects which make me yawn. This is why I have only given 4 stars.

1. The two main characters continually feel sorry for themselves and you get numerous cut scenes to prove this. This has been true in the recent outings of FF games, why do they have to whinge and whine all the time? At least in most of the preceding games, excluding FFX-II, you could choose the characters you liked and then use them most of the time. But you are stuck with Sarah and Noel - so if you get fed up of their whining it is hard luck.

2. In some areas of the game, especially Academia (400AF) you continuously take only 2-3 steps then up pop some C'ieth to fight. You cannot escape them and the retry function is cancelled in this area, so you have to fight them all. Always the same enemies with the same weakness.
