Review by Andrew on 22nd February, 2012
 
5 stars "Final Fantasy back to the old formula"

What an excellent return to form for Final Fantasy. Personally I liked XIII too but the general feeling was it was too linear. This game changes that. It's a completely new game with all sorts of new features. It's full of side quests and non-linear maps. They changed the battle system by having two main characters (one NPC from XIII and a new character) and a third battle partner being a captured and enslaved mob. (Yes like pokemon… but still awesome). The story is as complex as XIII and follows on from that so you will find it easier to follow if you played through XIII first. If you want a good JRPG this has to be right up there on your list.

Review by James on 15th March, 2012
 
4 stars "Improves much, but not all."

First things first, I liked the first game. It had its faults, but it wasn't horrible like many claim. However it's because of this, this sequel is crippled from the get-go.

Things this game improves on, like non-linearity early on, side-quests, and a (somewhat) branching plot – these are things those who complained about the original would probably love. However because of the original, they are likely not to buy this game. The maps/areas are expansive, loads of things to explore, and more so when you jump between eras. The side-quests give things to do between or during plot points, and even give you CP/EXP for your trouble.

The battle system has been slightly altered, but still has some elements that bother me a little. You can fine-tune the Paradigms, or swap leader mid-battle or when another dies, and those are nice things. What bothers me is the retaining and reliance of “Auto-battle”. I love the application of the ATB system in this and the original, but if you want to survive or get 5-star ratings on battles, you're going to need to use Auto-battle (or have fast thumbs). This removes half the sense of control or strategy, leaving you simply to keep hitting auto or swap roles when needed.

The plot – though time travel is a nice concept to play with, if like me you've played the Chrono games, watch Doctor Who, or seen Steins;Gate, you'll be familiar with many chronological concepts. You're going to need to put those aside, as this game treats the time travel elements are a more magical force and mystical quality that works more on Narrativum than casualty. However you could almost forgive this, as it pulls the game closer to Final Fantasy than Final Sci-fi.

Overall if you didn't hate FFXIII you may be cool with FFXIII-2, and if you wanted to see improvements, they're here. The game is also shorter, with my playtime being somewhere around the region of 45 hours, instead of 120 hours.

4 stars "Better than FF XIII"

Not a game for people that aren't fans of the FF series. However if you are, this is just more of the stuff you enjoy. I played through FFXIII despite the negative reviews and really enjoyed it and so far I am enjoying this just as much if not a bit more. 8/10

This game is amazing. On the xbox it looks beautiful and it is a good next step from the last game.

Description

Compatible with DLC from the NZ/AU Xbox Live Marketplace.

Three years after the events in FINAL FANTASY XIII, Lightning has gone missing, and Snow is nowhere to be found. In a rebuilding world, Serah notices that something is amiss. After a fortuitous encounter with a mysterious man named Noel, the two set off to find Lightning…

“…hands-down better than Final Fantasy XIII.” Cheat Code Central
“…a fun and highly playable RPG glowing with visual beauty” 7.5/10 Gamespot
“…the better game” 8/10 – IGN

  • Player-driven scenario with freedom over story progression; Multiple endings offer extensive replay value
  • Tame and develop over 150 different monsters as party members, including iconic monsters like cactuars, tonberries, and behemoths
  • Newly added “tuning” feature allows for greater strategic control over paradigms
  • Cinematic Action sequences blur the line between battles and cut scenes
  • Diverse in-game environments rife with NPCs offer an abundance of exploration opportunities and side missions

Reviews

“Square Enix should be commended for addressing Final Fantasy XIII's problems and for once again delivering a fun and highly playable RPG glowing with visual beauty and saturated with simple but universal sentiments. Nevertheless, the improvements feel less weighty than they might have–mechanical triumphs in a game that feels less than the sum of its parts. You won't perform awe-inspiring summons as a matter of course, and the ending–well, the ending isn't likely to leave you with the sense of closure you might want. Yet the monster collection and time-hopping freedom alone are enough to make it worth embarking on this enjoyable adventure.” Gamespot 7.5/10

“Story gripes aside, Final Fantasy XIII-2 is just hands-down better than Final Fantasy XIII. It has more replay value, a more compelling battle system, an open world, an innovative exploration premise, and much more. If Final Fantasy XIII's laundry list of flaws turned you off to the Final Fantasy franchise, then Final Fantasy XIII-2 will get you back in.” Cheat Code Central

“…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…” 8/10 Great. IGN

IGN RATINGS FOR FINAL FANTASY XIII-2 (X360)
7.0 Presentation
Extreme polish in almost all user systems. Organized menus, clear tutorials, and a fun sense of humor. Story only reaches emotional clarity at the conclusion and offers no closure.
8.5 Graphics
Eye-catching characters and colorful worlds. Not quite as impressive as when the original launched in 2010, but still full of personality and an ample usage of pink and purple.
9.0 Sound
Excellent voice work from the actors behind Serah and Noel, with solid performances from the rest of the supporting cast. A great soundtrack with more vocals than most Final Fantasy games to date.
8.0 Gameplay
Fast battles supported by a fun monster collection system. Still fairly easy for the JRPG experienced, though the new focus on exploration lends much to the package.
9.0 Lasting Appeal
Tremendous post-game content, considering you can beat the main quest with about 40 of the 160 collectible memory fragments. Easy to return to the world and continue fighting after the credits roll.
8.0
OVERALL
Great
