Final Fantasy XIII-2 review (Xbox 360)

Reviewed February 17, 2012

Adam Beck says: "Final Fantasy XIII may have been a commercial success, selling millions of units around the globe, but it also could also be considered one of this generation’s biggest disappointments. It wasn’t so much that the game was bad, just that a number of fundamental concepts which make Final Fantasy games so enjoyable were stripped away. "

jerec says: "The most difficult thing about Final Fantasy XIII-2 is trying to figure out where you were up to. As this game’s narrative is completely fractured, and the characters are so bland, the game becomes very tiresome. "

Sise-Neg says: "There seem to be many who think that just because a game has high production costs it should automatically have a grade of average or higher, especially when it comes from Square Enix. But people should have learned by now that high production values do not make a good game. Competent script writing and involving gameplay have been sacrificed once again for pretty graphics."
