Summary: FFX-2's free-form approach to game progression is novel, but it lacks the singular narrative thrust of FFX or other typical RPGs, and the storyline can feel a little nebulous and disjointed as a result. Consequently, you'll feel compelled to visit every area in every chapter in order to get a firm handle on the game's plot.
Summary: I really enjoyed FFX and I hoped that I would enjoy FFX-2 just as much. I was wrong. Personally, I don't like having to change clothes in battle just to get different abilities. I actually kind of miss the sphere grid from FFX. One of my my major pet peeves is the way Yuna flings her arms around when she runs. I know it's something dumb to get annoyed at, but it gets on my nerves.
Summary: Now, after successfully completing Final Fantasy X, I went right out to the Gaming store and bought Final Fantasy X-2, as I deeply loved X. When I put the disk in my drive, I noticed the nice piano music playing. At first, in the game, it was pretty boring, which most games are in the beginning, so naturally, I played on, waiting for the good stuff to happen. To my surprise....It didn't. Honestly, if you hold down X during regular enemy battles, you will win.
Summary: This game is an expansion pack of FFX. 90% same characters, 90% same maps, the graphics are the same, it just has a new story. One of the main changes is that you are given only 3 characters, for the entire game. You can change their 'job' mid-fight, which gives you a set of different abilities. This gives you almost the same variability as the last game, even more if you can find the hidden jobs (in 'dress sphere' items you can find in the game).
Summary: I was very interested in this game before it was released, I created a website for it, and was very much involved in it's online community. My worst fear was that it would just be a quick rehash of FFX with few original elements. I couldn't have been less justified in this fear. The game is so different from FFX it makes me want to take a shower. FFX was not an amazing game, my main complaint about it being the idiocy of its main character.
Summary: Final Fantasy X was a great game. And whether you liked FFX or not, just the name "Final Fantasy" grabs your attention when you see this game. Final Fantasy X-2 actually links to FFX in an accurate way, but as far as it goes for a game it's just okay and that means that for Final Fantasy it's rather mediocre. You start off watching Yuna give a pop concert and of course because sex is making it's appearance back in the world today, she's very revealing and so is Rikku.
Excerpt: Welcome to the world of final fantasy X-2 a game that well, let's see how it is. Let's starts with the story and take it from there. Story: We join Yuna who after defeating sin and saving the day for everyone who has join up with a group called the gullwings that hunts down spheres, Yuna does this together with her team mates Rikku from the last game and Paine a new girl you will learn about later on in the game, the main aim for the gullwings and the whole game is to...
Summary: Some people will simply ignore this game when speaking about Final Fantasy games, and quite rightly so. This game is rather confused as it is a sort of adventure/platforming/rpg mix. However this doesnt make it a bad game, it makes it a bad FF game. This game is mostly filled with upbeat and cheerful pop/rock songs and tunes - something you will notice from start to finish.
Summary: Final Fantasy X was the first PS2 game I bought. And I loved it. So when X-2 was released, I went off and bought it... only to have this expression pasted onto my face: -_- (the - are the eyes, the _ is the lips) It's like a rip-off tale from Charlie's Angel meets the traditional Final Fantasy system... not in a good way. The graphics were stunning in the cutscenes, and pretty alright for the other parts, and the songs were AWESOME.
