If you are a fan of the series you should play this game.

The simple fact is the first few hours of the game are very off putting to people who were playing it as a sequel to FFX. It didn't really seem like a sequel so much as it was a spin off. Not to mention the whole Charles Angles kinda feel to it.

However once you get to a certain point in the game it pretty much ditches that side of the game and turns into a worthy sequel to 10. The issue is that the vast majority of people who played the game never made it that far. Stopped playing and then spread the word that the game sucked despite the fact that it didn't.

From a purely game play stand point it's also one of the better FF's out there. It's battle system was quite dynamic with characters and enemies slowly being moved out of place and if you used it correct you could stop enemies from attack if you chained attacks well enough.

Point is not enough people gave X-2 a chance and had they done so they would have most likely liked what they played.

The first FFX had me crying like a little baby at the end. All I kept on saying to myself was, "Poor Tidus... poor bastard, man!" while whimpering on my pillow while screaming in it so no one can hear the sounds of sadness. FFX-2 wasn't as *great*; but it was good enough to play through and see that both Yuna's fine ass and Tidus hook up once again.

I'm not gonna lie, I own this game...but due to how poorly my friends viewed it, I didn't even bother to play it. Maybe I'll have to roll it...
