To all of my fellow FF lovers out there, your not alone. Look, I under stand that maybe Square Enix did not go as far as they could have gone with FFXIII but you have to understand they are still making great games today. I dont know if its the graphics or gameplay, but I have a feeling that this game is going to be amazing. After Final Fantasy Versus and Agito XIII that are going to be relased also is like an extra gift! I mean every single trailer that I have seen of these 3 games, drives me even more insane for Final Fantasy. Square Enix are going to make a comeback and they are hungrier than ever! I can feel it. ;))))

by Cassie I cannot wait for FF XIII-2!
Final Fantasy 13 was the first Final Fantasy game i ever played, and considering i only have an Xbox 360, I couldn't get any of the old Final Fantasy game. When i heard this game was coming out and that it was for 360 I was ecstatic. I heard Final Fantasy games were nothing short of amazing and when i got it, about three days after it came out, i was blown away by how utterly amazing this game was. By far, this was the best game i have ever played! I absolutely cannot wait for FF XIII-2. At the very least it's coming out at the end of this year and not next year.

Rated 0 out of 10 by MasonGMU08 Final Fantasy Sequel? Again?
I started playing the FF series from the original for the NES and I absolutely loved it and all of the ones that came after up till X. X was a big disappointment for me but yet I still endured through the game and finished it. After that, I have had a hard time completing any other FF games in the series. One burning question that everyone had after FFVII came out was, will there be a sequel? Square said that every Final Fantasy game tells the story of that character's "Final Fantasy", hence, the title of the series. I never played X-2, but heard bad things about it. I tried playing XIII but found it to be very boring but was told by friends that you had to get 60 hours into the game to really enjoy it. Had I had the time, I would have done this, but the idea of sequels for Final Fantasy is something that I can never settle on. I like the idea of one game and then moving on. Not to be a hater, but I will not be giving this game a second look.

First of all, I loved Final Fantasy XIII. I don't get the hate it seems to be receiving. I thought the battle system was absolutely fantastic and the story was downright amazing. Just don't choose auto ability and watch how fun the game can really get. People seemed to hate the "streamline" atmosphere of the game and how long it took to be able to change party members (which actually wasn't that long, people seem to be impatient.) With that said, leave the game alone. Final Fantasy XIII-2 seems to have taken a horrible approach to lack of party members. Instead, you defeat enemies and they become your party members. The battle system is supposedly revamped and even more exciting which sounds good but everything I've seen of the game so far just makes it look like a desperate attempt to make more money off the Final Fantasy title. Feel free to prove me wrong, hopefully this game will turn out well. I probably won't buy it anyway. I loved the first Final Fantasy XIII and that'll be enough. Final Fantasy IX, X, and XIII are my personal favorite.

It's to rejoin Lightning, and her sister Sarah as you embark into the sequel of Final Fantasy XIII. Final Fantasy XIII-2 looks dazzling as Square Enix proves they still have the graphics that make your eyes tear up with joy. A few new additions to the battle system, including a cinematic battle system, look like promising. The story already feels compelling and looks to be a great addition to the previous game. Unlike the previous title XIII-2 has decided to break the linear chains the previous title presented and take a more traditional Final Fantasy direction by opening the world up for greater exploration. With an open world gamers will be able to expect more human interaction resulting in a number of things such as; shops, sidequests, items, weapons, ect. While many wait in excitement or loathing one thing is clear. Final Fantasy XIII-2 promises to be an amazing adventure that no one will soon forget.

I love the Final Fantasy series and can not wait for this game, especially since it releases on my birthday. I don't know why people did not like FFXIII, I thoroughly enjoyed it, played it so much I got all but 2 achievements. The story was great for me and I can't see why people can't get past it not being like FFVII. That's a different story with different characters. I wish people that claim to be fans of the series would stop bashing the games of the series just because it's not fan service to your favorite characters. I honestly doubt if this game or the first featured Cloud or any cameo FFVII character people would be bashing as much as they are. But let's not get into that. FFXIII-2 is gonna be great I'm sure of it, it already looks better than FFXIII which was also great for me and I'm sure some other people. Im so excited for this game.
But here's something I'm curious about if anyone can tell me. What happened to FFXIII-Versus? I remember it was supposed to be set up at the same time of FFXIII but following a different character and story through that time period.
Rated 9 out of 10 by Travo9485 Could've been a 10
I'm a huge fan of the Final Fantasy franchise and this game, as well as it's predecessor "FFXIII", definitely brought a new flavor to the title. I recommend playing the first one before jumping into the sequel for the continuity of the storyline.
Some elements in battle have changed from the original, but not necessarily for the bad. The paradigm fighting still exists, but the one thing I miss the most is the fact that the monsters are visible before you get too them. They incorporated an old school element commonly found in turn based RPGs in that the enemies don't spawn until you're in their immediate vicinity. This only saddens me because of how beautiful the scenery is and the lack of wildlife in whole scope of things.
This being said the game still warrants much attention too all facets of gamers and even those who consider themselves among the elite.
Rated 10 out of 10 by SubjectDelta14 Final Fantasy XIII-2 is better than I expected!
I had the first Final Fantasy XIII, and I honestly had no idea what I was doing. I was never really into the whole fighting style and I eventually sold it, because it became too hard. Now back to Final Fantasy XIII-2. This game is amazing! It is a direct sequel to the first one. The graphics are absolutely stunning, and the game plays so smoothly. The characters are really great and they have so much back story on each of them. I like how in this game you can understand each character. Now that I really understand the fighting style I will have to go get Final Fantasy XIII and beat it. Even if you never had the first one this game isn't very hard to understand, because they explain a lot in the game. Final Fantasy XIII-2 may be one of the best RPG games I have ever played! If you are thinking about getting the game don't wait because $20 is an awesome price!

Really all these 10s? Has any of you actually played the old FF games? Seriously this game is junk as was the original their killing Final Fantasy franchise. The combat in this game is simply garbage beyond all comparison to previous FF games. They have dumbed this game down so much in recent years its little more than a joke to real JRPG lovers. Go play Lost Odyssey its 10x better than this joke. Hironobu Sakaguchi created that game do any of you who gave this game above a 6-7 even know who he is? He's the father of Final Fantasy who left square ENIX long ago.
Graphics dont make a game people period. Just as this game doesnt deserve to have the FF franchise label. This games sales in Japan bombed compared to its original thank god Japanese gamers are finally starting to reject this failed series. Now be kind and hit the thumbs down button tools.
