If You Love Final Fantasy X-2, You’ll Love Lightning Returns

Richard Eisenbeis:

''When people ask me what Lightning Returns is like, I always respond that it's a lot like Final Fantasy X-2. A lot of people seem to take this as an insult to Lightning Returns. It's not. While I feel like I am in the minority, I loved FFX-2 and much of what made it so fun to play is also present in Lightning Returns'' (Final Fantasy X-2, Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, PS3, Xbox 360)

I want closure too ! of SE then they can sell the IP`s to a dev who can produce something playable with them.

I like ff x-2 more since it has three characters which makes the battle system more fun.. plus when it comes to RPGs the more playable characters it has the better.. one reason why i'm not a big of fan of ff 13-2 as well

ff 13-6
ff 13-2-2
ff 13-3-1

X-2 was absolute trash.
XIII-3 is absolute trash.
Xof  +   632d ago
It's not absolute trash.

It has very, very high production values. And if this generation has taught us anything, it's that a vast quantity (a majority, actually) of gamers are incapable of distinguishing between game quality and production quality.

What did X-2 become something better overtime?

The only FF I have not enjoyed at all is FFXIII-2 and I am sure that will change once this is released. Surprise me Square because from what I have seen this will be garbage.

X-2's story was not that great, but I find it hard pressed for anyone to say the battle system wasn't enjoyable. The battle system was awesome, if only the story would've matched up and possibly more playable characters, it could've been even better.

Did you even play 13-3 or did you just watch part 1 of a japanese unsubbed playthrough on youtube and then deemed the game unplayable? Because right now japan is loving lightning returns and it's the most popular ff subseries in japan right now.

X-2 wasn't trash it was pretty good for what it was

I can't believe the author compared the two <shivers>

Final Fantasy XIII LR is the best game in the series to date
Treian  +   632d ago
You clearly haven't played much of the FF games then.

I believe he means "of the XIII Saga", speaking of 13 as it's own series within the Final Fantasy meta series.
newflesh  +   632d ago
I personally enjoyed FF13 more than 13-2, which I thought was boring
Hicken  +   632d ago
Same here. Wasn't the same sense of urgency, nor the collection of clashing personalities that I liked in XIII.

I also liked X-2, since I didn't go in expecting it to be X all over again... and, you know, Rikku makes everything better.

I think I'll enjoy LR just fine.

From what I've seen it's exactly what I'm looking for

so is really that gay of a game?

"If You Love Final Fantasy X-2, You’ll Love Lightning Returns"

I hate the whole saga so get over with this sh1t & finally move on, the whole generation ruined because SE keep on releasing a game the majority of serious JRPG fans didn't want it in the first place but no SE decide to give us moar & moAr & shove it in our throats no matter if we like it or not.

No one was talking about you.

I have played almost all Final Fantasysto date, including the MMOs and console and handheld spinoffs (Everything from tactics to 4 heroes of light) and I can honestly say I enjoyed the XIII series. Well, XIII did get boring at time but XIII-2 fixed the issues I had with the original.
moegooner88  +   631d ago
Same here, loved both, XIII-2 was an enjoyable game with plenty of variety, whereas XIII has an awesome story. Also, Fang is one of my fav FF characters, so can't wait to see what happens in LR.
il-JumperMT  +   632d ago
I had to join the website just to say that FF X-2 is the worst Final Fantasy ever made, and I played nearly FF from 1 till 14 (even 11. The one I did not play is the mobile exclusive F2P crap All The Brave (not remakes, I love the remakes on my Android).

I don't.
