It keeps the good things - decent characters and world, solid battle system, nice presentation - and ditches most of the bad stuff from the original - linear levels, slow pacing, the million 'Cie variations, lack of towns - and...

  • 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 .

  • 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!
