Final Fantasy XIII-2 (PlayStation 3)

 

Final Fantasy XIII-2's box art features the indomitable Lightning, looking strong and feminine in her tough-as-nails armor and flowing skirt of feathers. You remember Lightning, of course: she spent the majority of Final Fantasy XIII trying to release...

Ever sinceFinal 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...

The gameplay is practically unchanged from FFXIII. There is a creature in the place of a third human AI, and the Eidolon summons are gone. If you liked the revamped battle system in FFXIII, then you will like it here as well. If you did not...

Final Fantasy XIII-2 Xbox 360, PS3 Review: a time traveling cinematic event

 

The latest Final Fantasy epic from Square Enix is here. Brandon reviews this cinematic, time-traveling Japanese RPG.

Overall, Final Fantasy XIII-2 is a solid title. I enjoyed the story (even though it was a bit hard to follow at times) and it was pretty cool seeing how locations varied with each different time period. I loved the battle system in Final Fantasy XIII...

The use interface and menu system is cool and slick, and the visuals are crisp, clear and at times awe inspiring, if not predictable. The game features a respectable amount of recorded dialogue, but a lot of it comes off as cheesy and overdone.

I'd love to have a cheat for quick leveling up, as it would make it easier to defeat some of the bosses easier. A Pokemon style listing of where to find all of the game's monsters would also be a cool tool to have.

Final Fantasy XIII-2 was a rather surprising announcement during 2011 after its prequel wasn't particularly well received. I found it to be an

Despite it’s poor pacing during the second act and its less than satisfying end, Final Fantasy XIII-2 can hold its head up high as a large improvement over its predecessor in the places where it counts. The story is more focused and genuinely touching,...

I'm one of those guys who actually liked Final Fantasy XIII. So, sue me. I thought changing up the style and offering a different take on the FF universe was a breath of fresh air. Don't get me wrong...

Great combat system ; Wonderful presentation ; Good voice acting ; Beautiful visuals ; Tons to do and explore

Story drags at times ; Confusion on where to go next may pop up

I’m one of those guys who actually liked Final Fantasy XIII. So, sue me. I thought changing up the style and offering a different take on the FF universe was a breath of fresh air. Don’t get me wrong, I love previous FF games as well. This is why I...

Saving the world wasn't enough—now time needs to get its ass saved too?

Battle system returns with a few nice tweaks; Monster collection and growth is well done; A return to non-linear exploration

perhaps too non-linear; Convoluted and nonsensical plot

So at the end of the day, I’m going to say what I expected to say when I saw this game in the past, and what you probably expected me to say as well: FFXIII-2 is a lot like FFXIII and will elicit the same kind of divided response within the gaming...

The lastest

But more importantly, this unbound narrative allows the designers to stretch their creative legs. Players jump from Blade Runner dystopias to verdant monster lairs atop overgrown trees. A highpoint finds Serah and Noel at the edge of reality, where an...

Final Fantasy XIII-2 doesn't capture Lightning in a bottle, but it's still a fun and heartfelt role-playing adventure.

Monster collection is fun and addictive ; Multiple heartfelt moments combine story and gameplay in effective ways ; Caius is a fantastic villain ; Impressive, varied visual design

The best characters were sidelined in favor of less interesting ones ; Multiple sequences bog down the pace ; Main story is relatively easy and short

And so the two set out on a journey across time, hopping from one level to another, with each one representing a different place or time. The two make a blandly pleasant team, and apart from a third slot designated for voiceless monsters (more on that...

Unravel time and wage war against darkness in the latest Final Fantasy. Read IGN's complete review and watch the video review.

Final Fantasy XIII-2 proves itself the better game, but it lacks the same focused storytelling employed in the original. It benefits from an improved battle system, open environments, and an overall level of polish that deserves a nod of respect....
