Summary: Needless to say, I had many doubts about this game when I first saw reviews and what they had done to the characters, but I figured I'd at least try it, because, heck, it's from SquareEnix. In any case, I bought the game and It surprised me. It was actually pretty good. Now this doesn't mean that it's entirely perfect, so I'll review by different aspects. Graphics Some say they have improved compared to FFX, though I think there about the same.
Summary: OK, first off, this is NOT your typical FF game. Those looking for a hardcore RPG with a deep storyline along the lines of FF7 - FF10 will be sorely disappointed. This game is simply a bunch of missions, kinda like sidequests if you will, where you control Yuna and Rikku (from FFX) plus the new character Paine. This game, however, is loads of fun! While it's definitely not up to par with previous FF games, it adds that SquareEnix zing to the mission-based RPG.
Summary: Final Fantasy X was a great game, and a lot of people agree. However, many people may not know that Final Fantasy X had the highest selling rate and history, and not many knew that many unsatisfied crowds of RPG fans complained to Square about the mysterious ending of Tidus swimming to the surface of water. Only too many people have already judged Final Fantasy X-2, based on very lacking information.
Summary: Wow! An actual sequal to a FF Game! I've played through the Japanese version, and when it boils down to it, it's a pretty good game. The opening sequence featuring Yuna (or is it?) in concert is great (Koda Kumi sings the song)! Basically, the plot revolves around Yuna, Rikku, and Paine hunting for spheres, as Yuna tries to find out what happens to Tidus! Gameplay is different. You choose your missions for sphere hunting rather than linear play.
Summary: WOW. First off, I got my hands on the version from Japan, and wow. It's increadable. The story is well written and extrememly envolving. Yes it is a direct sequal to X which happends to be the first time Square has ever made a "real" sequal to another Final Fantasy game ever. I totaly am enjoying this game, and with the help of a translator I do understand what's going on. But I totaly suggest waiting untill to appropriate version for your language comes out.
Summary: This game gets a ton of hate, why? Probably the lighthearted nature of the story, I think the female leads also play a part in that. This game, is by no means bad. It's a good game. It really is. The story is great, because it wraps up what happens with Yuna and Tidus at the end of Final Fantasy X. As well as giving us more time to see the characters in FFX and what they're up to. The gameplay is THE BEST, in the series.
