Final Fantasy XIII-2 Review


It's not often a developer will release a fully-fledged sequel in order to right their wrongs, but in the case of Final Fantasy XIII-2, Square Enix have set out to do just that. Many veterans of the series had a problem with XIII, namely its linearity...

Capturing monsters is huge fun.

Final Fantasy XIII-2 Playtest: Time For A Change


Final Fantasy XIII-2 begins with Lightning riding Odin in a post-apocalyptic backdrop about to fight Caius Ballad. The story then switches to Serah who has been living with NORA and resolves to save her sister when a time traveler comes crashing into...

Is this the Final Fantasy fans have been clamoring for? I’m not sure. Square Enix responded to Final Fantasy XIII criticism in an unprecedented way by checking off an Internet wish list. While the game feels disjoined at times as you’re whisked away...

Final Fantasy XIII-2


Contrasted with those themes are the vocal songs which function as background music, exploring many modern pop trends. The background music also adds an extra dimension to the gameplay: when monsters pop up, the music switches to an “aggressive mix.”...

Final Fantasy XIII-2


Final Fantasy XIII was not a "4" for me, but I wouldn't have given it much more credit. The story was, at times, confusing and very hard to follow, the proper nouns it used made my ears hurt, and the summoned, transforming Eidolons were so silly that I...

I've heard the same question many times in the last few months: Will those disappointed by Final Fantasy XIII enjoy this sequel? I think so. In fact, it seems like Final Fantasy XIII-2 was made with these people in mind as it seems to address many of...

Final Fantasy XIII-2


Few names in gaming bring with them as much baggage, or expectation as Final Fantasy. The series, whose fourteenth instalment (an online MMO) was released last year, returns to a previous game by way of a direct sequel for only the second time, in the...

Although not the complete overhaul that some may have desired, Final Fantasy XIII-2 is a surprisingly bold and distinctive sequel. Many of the issues that plagued its predecessor have been negated in one way or another, and the twisting narrative and...

Final Fantasy XIII-2 Playstation 3 Review


It's been almost two years since Final Fantasy XIII was released here in Oz. It was surrounded with some controversy when it launch internationally as it was the first cross platform Final Fantasy much to the chagrin of Playstation fanboys. I must...

Final Fantasy XIII-2 PS3 Review


A lot of Final Fantasy fans weren't very enamoured with the 13th iteration of the series, with a major reason behind the lack of love being that many genre staples were omitted, such as towns, NPC interaction and as for the exploration aspect, well...

Final Fantasy XIII-2 is superior to its predecessor in many ways, though its lack of difficulty, and towns that are still somewhat lacking in their execution in comparison to earlier iterations of the series, as well as a narrative that by series...

Final Fantasy XIII-2


Resident FFF (Final Fantasy Fan), Jae, takes the journey back into the realm of Gran Pulse and sees what the old crew are up to these days. Seems things aren't as peachy as they were at the end of FFXIII.

Quick time events done right ; Battle mechanics with monsters works well

Story, what story? I’m confused there was a story worth caring about ; No strong engaging characters and average audio to accompany

I'm not sure why Square-Enix is hanging on to a FFVII remake till it's darkest hour. Just announce it already and stop making "-2" titles that do little except to extend upon a poorly convoluted story. Actually I don't want a remake but your fans are...

Final Fantasy XIII-2


Final Fantasy XIII-2 is set in the same world as its predecessor, XIII, hence the silly version numbering system. The review guide that came with this release states that Square Enix have "responded to the things fans didn't like about Final Fantasy...

If you don't like JRPGs, you probably still won't like FFXIII-2. But I do like them, and I can't praise FFXIII-2 enough as being a stand-out example of the genre, with a focus on fun gameplay mechanics rather than lengthy cinematics and confusing...

Games Xtreme gets back on track with Square-Enix's Final Fantasy XIII-2 review

XIII-2 is the game that XIII should have been. It's a solid entry point for new fans and a quality product.
