Summary: This game was better then its predecessor, but not by much. The game followed a linear story line (as did its predecessor) Though i found the game slightly more entertaining with the way you can travel between (Spoiler) Time! There is allot of things to brake up the dullness of its predecessor with multiple puzzles though it lacked its predecessors colorful cast.
Worth playing once, but could have done a lot better!

Summary: I am a long time Final Fantasy fan and a long time fan of RPG/JRPG games all together. When I play a RPG I rate it from storyline > gameplay > sidequest > soundtrack > and graphics come last IMO. First of all I would rate this game with the same score as I rate Final Fantasy 13 for completely different reasons. Final Fantasy 13 had a memorable storyline, linear and extremely limited yet challenging gameplay, a great soundtrack and great graphics.
Summary: Some improvements from Final Fantasy XIII, like we get out of all caves and dungeons, but other inexplicable regressions that angered me ... leading me to think, why did I pay real money for this second-class game? In Final Fantasy XIII, you had a group of adventurers you could play with and improve (they didn't all play at the same time, but still). Here? You only have TWO!
Summary: I've played (almost) all the FF games, and, unlike most others I don't really have a die-hard favorite. 9 is probably the one I'm least likely to replay, but I did recently play it again, so that doesn't really mean much. For me, the fun of the FF series is the plot and the characters, and the experiments they do with the battle system and the level-up grid each time. Sometimes it'll be a hit, and sometimes a miss, but I appreciate that they try.
Decent, but... is this really what the Final Fantasy series has come to?

Summary: Well, now that I've finished all of the extra endings and whatnot... I guess the game didn't leave much of a lasting impression on me because I don't even know what to say about it. It was probably as good as or better than Final Fantasy XIII, but that's not saying much because FFXIII was pretty weak.
Summary: This game was alright. I'm an avid Final Fantasy fan and to be honest, I wasn't expecting much from this game... It wasn't terrible, but I definitely wouldn't be interested in playing it again... Usually I play through these games over and over and find so many new things to accomplish and with this one, I wanted to finish the story and be done with it. 16hrs of game play and bam! done!
Beautiful graphics and lots of fun, but does leave a lot to be desired.

Summary: Final Fantasy 13-2 is very fun, but it definitely feels much shorter than the first. I just finished the main portion of the game last night though. They are releasing DLCs like costumes, coliseum battles, and story stuff almost every other week, and I would've loved to purchase some nice looking costume, but I feel like they are purposeless to me now that I have completed the main part of the game.
Summary: First of all let me say that you are in for disappointment if you think this is the last FF13 game. The ending clearly states "to be continued" so you can expect there will be a Ff13-3. In any case, FF13-2 is truly a fun game with a unique battle system where you can use monsters to fight for you like pokemon. If you didn't preorder the game, you won't be able to use Omega Weapon in battle until they release a DLC for it.
Is this a full game, or a halve of a game? That is the question!

Summary: If you love FFXIII, then this is a no brainier buy for you, but if you didn't? Well let's get into shall we? Story - If you don't have a imagination to make the FFXIII story seem interesting at all to ya, then give up trying too understand it now. If you add (XIII) + (XIII-2) story together = um... what's going again now?
