Summary: 1. Storyline - while it is no longer the linear, hold-your-hand layout that characterized FFXIII, the story that you are given is hardly engaging. There are many plot holes (take Snow, for instance) which will most likely be addressed in the future through DLC, so expect to pay more in the future. The Historia Crux (time traveling) system had potential, but other than changing the weather and monsters, did not help develop the story in my opinion.
Summary: XIII-2...not so much of a sequel, it feels like I'm playing an interactive film without the slightest clue in the story and what's going (but apparently there are external media outlets and content that fill you in). This game will have you button mashing like there's no tommorow, and "strategically" tapping buttons and watching cutscene after cutscene (what else did you expect of SE, but whatever happend to all the fast paced decision making?).
Fun gameplay, Bad story full of gaps. Only for FFXIII fans.

Summary: Recommended for FFXIII fans. It's a good game. It's fun, looks great, and it does fix problems found in FFXIII. However, the story of this game is not good. Dialogues are cheesy, there's a LOT of plot holes and material often feels recycled. Characters don’t ask questions that are important and a lot of details are dismissed. It's hard to care about these cliche characters. If you get this game, make sure you like FFXIII first.
Summary: For games that I am most interested in, I always give a fair preview of what I think followed by a fair review. Here is my fair review. The graphics are amazing like FF13. The music is either a hit or miss for me...alot of it is pretty good...but the screamo boss music was awful..Plain and simple though, without Nobuo, the music is not Final Fantasy...I still miss the variations of the Final Fantasy theme song and fanfare (it went completely missing in FF13 and FF13-2).
Summary: I have been a die hard final fantasy fan ever since 7 came out on playstation in 1997. Ever since i have collected and played every final fantasy that has come out even buying consoles just to do so. However the main series line has been lacking for a while. Ever since final fantasy 10-2 the games seem to have lost something. While the battle engine for ff 13-2 is awesome I hate that there are only two characters that you can control the whole game.
