tridrakious's Final Fantasy X-2 International + Last Mission (PlayStation 2) review

Don't know what to say.

This is the first "true sequel" to a Final Fantasy game, it's just too bad it had to be part of Final Fantasy X.

Gameplay: The Gameplay goes back to the Active Time Based combat from IV to IX. So that is a some what of a plus to the game, but after using Final Fantasy X's battle system I did not want to go back. Also I don't really like the Charlie's Angels themed setting.

Graphics: They are a little bit improved from Final Fantasy X, but in some places it actually looks worst. The majority of the game looks awesome, but they had very few CG cut-scenes, which are the star of the Final Fantasy games (at least from VII on up)

Sound: This is a first (main) Final Fantasy game that does not have Nobuo's musical genius, but despite that it is still very good. The biggest blow to the game is the opening cut-ccene's Britney Spears themed song. not the way I want to start off my Final Fantasy adventure. I'm sorry to those that do, but I don't.

The only reason I can say to play this game again is to get everything so you can unlock the 100% ending. There isn't any other reason to play it again. So if you played it once and got everything. You're done with this game for the rest of your life.

    I really like FFX-2. This is not an objective judgment of the various components; this is my appreciation as a JRPG enthusiast of a JRPG that openly flips the bird to convention and expectation. The story itself is ultimately an unnecessary inflation of what was already a fairly long winded main game. The greatness of X-2 is more in the idea behind it: take X, a heavy handed exploration of religion, free will, and destiny, and turn it into a girl-power funhouse.The opening is really fantastic.

    Charlie's Angels+Final Fantasy X = Final Fantasy X-2. 0

    Final Fantasy X-2 is Squaresoft’s first attempt at making a full blown sequel to an installment in the long running Final Fantasy series, and can be summed up on one simple equation: Final Fantasy X + Charlie’s Angels = Final Fantasy X-2. In Final Fantasy X-2 you play as Yuna, Final Fantasy X’s summoner extraordinaire. The story picks up two years after the end of Final Fantasy X and the defeat of Sin. With the Calm now settled over Spira, the people have become obsessed with unlocking the secre...
