Dive into a new quest through time and space to find Lightning and undo the end of the world. This Final Fantasy XIII-2 trailer reveals more gameplay and more action-packed battles.
Well...combat looks amazing and it looks like there may be towns so thats a plus. Still same old terrible drama...guys who have to go to a salon and get their nails did before a battle..girls that sound like squeak toys...Characters who take themselves so seriously and are supposed to be fighters who look like they jumped off the set of ICarly. Lame. I will rent this from Gamefly because im sure there will be some fun to be had but…man…getting so old….
No need to be so harsh. I'm glad that they added a lot of variety into the gameplay. Everyone kept complaining about the linearity, but variety was a much bigger problem in FFXIII than linearity. Linearity isn't bad, and it could be done good like Final Fantasy X. The problem is, XIII was all hallway-cutscene-bossfight repeat. There was never any minigame, or side quest or even a boss fight where you just didn't spam magic and buff/debuffs to win. Even if the game was nonlinear, it'd just be a bigger field with more monsters. Thankfully, XIII-2 appears to have variety.
I really do not understand why people cannot just play the games without applying these stereotypes to the characters, sure the design is a certain style, that doesn't mean you have to instantly knock it off. I really don't know how else you expect the Final Fantasy series to change without having really over the top stories, to say that XIII-2 looks "same old terrible" really just boggles me, the story seems as over the top and exciting as any Final Fantasy (sure some were a bit hit and miss, but non to be "same old terrible".) I am pretty sure if you were to have never had the SNES Final Fantasies released as they were during that era, they would all have the exact same character styles that you quote as being "guys who have to go to a salon and get their nails did before a battle..girls that sound like squeak toys...Characters who take themselves so seriously and are supposed to be fighters who look like they jumped off the set of ICarly." I don't know if you noticed but almost all the games are like that with the exception being given to only one or two characters per game. This is not just directed at you, but people have to stop judging games based on what they see and base them on what the developers want you to see. Close your mind to any preconceptions you had to the whole Final Fantasy universe and just look at it with a fresh slate and open mind.
For every year that goes by in your life, there is less chance of seeing something truly new. The biggest critics often have the greatest experience and the least tolerance. When I was a child, I could not understand why adults did not still play with toys.
hmmm...food for thought popup...I like your style. FF used to be my favorite and I really hate the way SE has been flushing the franchise down the toilet. I just want them to progress...come up with new ideas and lead again.
I don't know why they didn't just expand on the FF12 formula, I really thought they were on to something great with that game.
Didn't watch the second half of the trailer. Unbearable But the first half of the trailer made the game look really fun.
I really want to see what he and Dajh look like!
cant wait looking good Square Enix this game is looking to be something great
I agree. The trailer was very impressive and i for one cant wait for it. It should be another one to remember.
I agree that the trailer was very good! I enjoyed XIII and 2 looks so much better, apart from Noel. However I wouldnt say that XIII was "one to remember".
I think a lot of SE hate will cloud a lot of people's judgement regarding this game. Its not like the hate is not justified and all *coughfirewadacough* but players, especially longtime fans of the series should not be dissuaded by SE's previous mistakes (to put it lightly) I think FFXIII-2 deserves some positive attention. Let Type-0 and FFXIII Versus be another subject for another story.
@ Tiffac man I couldn't agree with you more. Well said.
*milk* *milk* *milk* final fantasy, Square Enix. till it dies. And we'll see a Demons/Dark Souls message come up saying YOU DIED
Yeah, they're milking the Final Fantasy name, but they've come up with 13 different stories in different settings, with fairly different gameplay so it's not really as bad as it looks at first. Anyway, this looks more like it! Except the cheesy background story, this is going back to its FF roots with mini-games, towns and everything!
This game is for 5th grader lol. That is just my opinion. Though I love FF series, but I must say that this FF13-2 suck balls!, big time!
