Final Fantasy XIII-2

Family Friendly Gaming
2 February 2013
  • Excerpt: Final Fantasy has been one of the most well known franchises in the entire video game industry. Square Enix used to do Final Fantasy games as one shots, and never visited that fantasy universe ever again. Thankfully years ago they decided sequels to fantasy universes would be allowed. Hence the release of Final Fantasy XIII-2 on the PS3 and Xbox 360.

  • Excerpt: Ever since Final Fantasy VII was released in North America in 1997, the series has become the archetype of what every RPG should be. This reputation carried across many releases, and when Squaresoft (which subsequently became Square Enix) announced their titles it became a foregone conclusion that the review scores would be high, and every other developer would be scrambling to make something similar.

Final Fantasy XIII-2

  • Conclusion: Final Fantasy XIII -2 offers a great battle system and phenomenal graphics, but its story is often muddled at best, and fails to tie up the loose ends from XIII . Final Fantasy fanatics don’t want much from their Final Fantasy games, but some traditional RPG tropes like chocobos, towns, and open world gameplay are certainly among them.
  • Pros: Excellent, dynamic battle system, Monster recruitment system is addictive and deep
  • Cons: Storyline doesn’t make much sense or tie up loose ends, Seasoned RPGers will likely find little challenge in late-game play

Deep fantasy role-playing with elegant action sequences.

  • Summary: Parents need to know that Final Fantasy XIII-2 is a Japanese role-playing game with a strong focus on fantasy combat and emotional storytelling. Players take control of a pair of characters who alternate between fighting wildly imaginative non-human creatures in bloodless but visually spectacular combat and spending long moments talking about how they feel and their desire to save their friends and loved ones.

Review: Final Fantasy XIII-2 (Microsoft Xbox 360)

Diehard GameFAN
31 March 2012
  • Summary: There’s a very simple test you can take to determine if you’ll like Final Fantasy XIII-2 . Did you enjoy FFXIII ? If yes, then buy this game. If no, then what didn’t you like about it? If you said the battle system, then there’s not much this title can do for you. If you answered the linearity, the pacing, and/or the lack of towns, then you may want to give this a try.

Final Fantasy XIII-2 Review

28 March 2012
  • Excerpt: What's in a name? In the case of Final Fantasy XIII-2, the answer is quite a lot, actually . Consider it. Say it out loud. Final Fantasy XIII-2 is a name that prompts players to stack a laundry list of questions. Unlike other Final Fantasy games - whose worlds, stories and characters have no connection with their numerical forebears - Final Fantasy XIII-2 continues on from the storyline of Final Fantasy XIII, a game that took players the better part of 48 hours to finish...

  • Conclusion: I rarely found myself frustrated or confused in the story, and I am confident that most fans of the series will find it far superior as well. I remember originally it was rumored to be a three part series, so I'm still anxious for more!

Review: Final Fantasy XIII-2 (Xbox 360, PS3)

Gamer 2.0
27 February 2012
  • Conclusion: You’ll be disappointed if you approach Final Fantasy XIII-2 expecting another hundred-hour epic like the original. The main quest should only take you about 30 hours, and the endgame, while solid in its own right, won’t give you what Final Fantasy XIII did. What XIII-2 does well is provide you with a worthy extension of the FFXIII continuity and experience.

  • Excerpt: The first noticeable difference with FFXIII-2 is its surprisingly short storyline, running approximately twenty-five hours of gameplay from start to finish. The Final Fantasy titles have always been epic in scope, with eighty-some-odd hours of gameplay to offer; so while a twenty-five hour experience is about average these days for a single-player adventure, it falls drastically short for the series.
