Brief review on my experiences after finishing this game.

Summary: I bought Tales of Xillia when it came out last year and enjoyed it, and I can definitely say the same for Tales of Xillia 2. I don't want to explain too much, but the gameplay has been refined, and the story has been expanded upon. It's pretty dark, but it was a pleasure experiencing it. Revisiting old places in both worlds was nice, and seeing the characters after the first Xillia was nice too.
Summary: I don't think a Tales game has failed to be enjoyable to me yet, even if it is a direct sequel which can be hit and miss sometimes.. Can't say i'm a fan of the debt system but i guess it has its purpose.
The debt system is a terrible way to increase game time

Summary: The debt system is a terrible way to increase game time. It is very obnoxious, random, and unnecessary. Also, the leveling system with the allium orb is not what I look for in a leveling system at all. I feel like this game is poorly made compared to Tales of Graces f and Tales of Symphonia.
Good, borderline great, but very grindy (depending on difficulty setting)

Summary: I usually play Tales games on their hardest difficulty setting but, due to my limited gaming time and the grindy nature of this particular one, I was forced to put it on easy. It just wasn't worth it to me, and so I played it for the story and the characters alone. And the good news is that, in that respect, the game largely delivers; and if you are looking for something that will eat up a lot of your time, this can definitely fit the bill.
Not As Great As The First Game But Still A Good One.

Summary: While we get introduced to a few new characters and typical story line overall there wasn't anything bad or great about the game it was a decent sequel that answered a few questions and that's it. The gameplay is standard for most of the Tale Of series like with the combo special attacks and such though hat least the new character Luger was able to do some neat tricks her and there.
