If You Can Get Over, Certain Issues, It's Not a Bad Game

Summary: For a twenty Year Final Fantasy veteran, playing Final Fantasy X-2 was a kick in the stomach. At least when I first started the game, that is. Instead of the typical World-in-Despair opening of other Final Fantasy games, FFX-2 begins with FFX's Yuna apparently now as a pop princess superstar, with her loyal "fox force" of Rikku and Payne backing her up as Yuna's BFFs. Yes, it's very girly.
Summary: I was very disappointed with this game. Square really took a lot of gambles with it, and I think most of them were for the worse. This is a sequel to Final Fantasy X, which occurs 2 years afterwards. Unfortunately, the only playable characters are Yuna, a new character named Paine, and Rikku.
Summary: When I first heard that there would be an actual sequel to FFX, I was happy. FFX is probably my favorite RPG of all time, but the ending was kind of disappointing. Unfortunately, FFX 2, is not in the same league with it's predecessor. Graphics: 3 - Ok this game is every bit as beautiful as FFX, but not better. In 2001 this was amazing. In 2003 they are old news. Sound: 1 - Annoying! Plain annoying. First of all, 90% of the game has the exact same music throughout.
Summary: This is a major dissapointment. I just got this game for Christmas and have kinda just begun just did a couple missions and im not one bit interested. The whole time i just felt like turning it off and playing anything else but i tried to give it a chance and thought to myself" Ill play some more it's gotta get better then this" Well it hasnt and the only thing that really kept me on it was the nice clips of yuna, paine and rikku jumping around seriusly(ok i admit im a...
Summary: I bought this game after completing Final fantasy X, which is easily one of their best games to date, along with VIII, and, well, I thought things just weren't right... Things started okay I suppose. I thought things would stop being all bubbly and camp after the first few minutes of the game. But throughout, things just started to slip. Dressing up in mid-battle? Chasing after a tidus look-alike? Singing?
Summary: As a huge Final Fantasy fan and an optimist, I have tried to love every single FF series and even FFX-2. In fact, I did have some fan playing the game because this game is actually provide some more traditional FF series game with ATB and many traditional accessories and magic. Sphere system is so-so, but in my opinion, it is not as terrible as some of the reviewers that hated it so much. A lot of other RPG games provided worse skill systems than it.
Summary: To say that it is a sequel to one of the best RPGs on the play station...I'd rather that I never bothered. There are some pretty cutscenes, and the singy bits are nice to look at...but other than that...Their costumes were designed for dirty old men to get off on, and the story leaves lots to be desired, and I was thoroughly disappointed by the 'perfect' ending. I don't particularly like the battle system and blitzball has gone rather down the pan.
Summary: First off, this is just my opinion, do not take it to heart and although this is rather harsh, I feel I must say it. I do not own this game, my friend does, however I am glad I dont. When I first heard of FFX-2, I was excited like every other FF fan. After five minutes I realised this is Charlies Angels masquarading as an RPG...The game is all about three girls in skimpy outfits, promoting girl power, while fighting the lamest foes ever concieved.
Summary: This suffers from the very same problems as the Charlie's Angels films: three girls running round as giggling fools but still thwarting the even stupider bad guys isn't feminism. It's exploitation and male fantasy. The gameplay is poor, the music repetitive and the fact that you have to play through the whole thing twice to achieve total completion doesn't provide longevity, it only provides tedium. A dreadful downfall for a brilliant series.
Summary: After playing, and loving, the video game Kingdom of Hearts I felt obliged to try the Final Fantasy Game. I was looking forward to a new instesting story line but when I played the game I was sadly dissapointed. The game was, in summary, boring. Fighting is hardly difficult on this game. All you do is press X all the times and your enemies are killed. How thrilling...not. The characters on the game are, to be frank,aggrivating.
