This game ties in so much with the origanal FFX. Trust me, if you didn't play the original FFX all the way through then you'll be lost in this game. It's amazing how Sqare made the events from FFX tie into this game so much.
Now for the battle system. As you already know, the battle system changes on each Final Fantasy game. On this one the characters use dresspheres (jobs) and they can change jobs during the battle. The combat is non-linear, which means multiple characters can attack all at once to increase damage. There's no more attack-be attacked-attack patterns. Another huge difference is the absence of aeons (remember they were destroyed at the end of FFX). Believe me, once you get into the game you won't mind there not being any aeons. The ATB system has also been brought back to FFX-2.
As for the storyline I have to honestly say that it's incredible. Almost as good as FF8 and FF7. Yuna becomes a sphere hunter and on a journey to find Tidus. The great thing about the story of this game is that so many different things can happen depending on what decisions you make. In Chapter 2 of the game you will make a decision that will determine most of the events to occur in the rest of the game. There's also a completion percentage in the game and you can view various endings depending on how much of the game you completed.
As for the sound, it's slightly above average.Read more ›
Some 2 years have passed since Yuna, Wakka, Sir Auron, Rikku, Kimahri & our lost dream (and Yuna's love,) Tidus defeated Sin to bring the eternal calm. For anyone that hasn't played and beaten X, it's a good idea to pick up a copy and play it through first simply because X-2 doesn't give you a lot of backstory, instead alludes to things and moves forward.
Yuna is now a Sphere Hunter with the Gullwings and travels with her cousin Rikku and a brash new character, the Gothic female Paine. Rikku arrived on the Isle of Besaid and gave Yuna a sphere containing a video of someone that looks like Tidus trapped for trying to use some kind of weapon. I can't elaborate more or I would spoil most of the adventure. So, Y. P. R. (as they call themselves) are hunting every sphere in Spira trying to find out just who this is. Along the way, they are constantly hounded by the Leblanc Syndicate (another Sphere Hunter group) and the rise of New Yevon. If X's tagline was "This is my story," (meaning Tidus,) than the tagline for X-2 is appropriate as "This is Yuna's story." In fact, it is a deep story as I have come to find out and far moreso than the brief synopsis by Square-Enix. (This is a good thing.)
The same source code was used for many of different area's seen in FFX, but have been tweaked and updated to bring the world of Spira 2 years forward. Some area's look exactly the same, however, with new people and places to explore.Read more ›
Only too many people have already judged Final Fantasy X-2, based on very lacking information. People who oppose this game usually have a dull and opinionated mindset of having to have a Square tradition of non sequencial Final Fantasy games. They also think that the characters and the setting are the same, making the game dull. However, like said before, many people who remark with such shallow comments don't have enough information. This game is awarded with an extremely high score, even just based on storyline.
The gameplay's a little bit different. No more Aeons, no more Overdrives, and no Overkills. However, the Aeon command has been replaced with the "Change Dress" command, where the character changes their Dress Sphere into a different one, taking on a job of a different position. A good example may be from White Mage to Dark Knight, and so on (by the way, these "Dress Spheres" determine the character's HP, Strenght, and etc.). Yuna has also been given the ability to do some extra things on the field (something like... jumping?).
The music has been replaced completely. If you're expecting the old tunes from Final Fantasy X, forget it. The composer is not Nobuo Uematsu, but two new directors. The music genre seems to be quite wide however. Songs like "Shuin's Theme" or "Memory of Lightwaves" seem like something that may have been the work similar to of Nobuo Uematsu, but the new Blitzball theme and others take on a complete new genre of retro.Read more ›

I love the world of Final Fantasy and I enjoyed the emphasis on the female characters. I just found the story and gameplay to be lacking in comparison to the groundbreaking games... Read morePublished 1 month ago by Mari
H'okay. So, FFX2 was the first direct sequel to a Final Fantasy game, of course referring to FFX--which itself was a phenomenal game. Read morePublished 3 months ago by A. Douglas
