Final Fantasy XIII-2: 10 Reasons you might reconsider buying it

From the time Square Enix unveiled the spiritual sequel to Final Fantasy XIII which had mixed reception, there has been some doubtful enthusiasm among the hardcore Final Fantasy fans towards FFXIII-2.

So here are 10 Reasons you might reconsider pre-ordering FFXIII-2. (Final Fantasy XIII-2, PS3, Xbox 360)

I really Love Time-Travel and hope this game delivers all those Deja Vu moments associated with breaching the Time-Continuum-Shift phenomenon.

"4) During battles, players will be put through QTEs(Quick Time Events) called “Cinematic Action” which will allow them to deal higher damage to foes and gain the upper hand in certain battles."

Stopped reading your list. Your whole list is awful but this one I never expected. Are you even a FF fan? This is whats ruining the FF franchise, the more it wants to be cinematic and action packed with QTE's, the more it distances itself from the genre it belonged to trhat everybody loved.

You can't consider yourself a fan from now, because of people like you SquareEnix will keep on making shitty games, perhaps they will even turn FF into a 3rd person shooter.

Who are you to say who is or is not a fan? Do you remember limit breaks from other FF games? Some of them were QTEs. And they were awesome fun.

You're not a long time fan are you ? Square did QTE is FF games since long time ago it's just more visible .

As for the 3rd person shooter part drige of cerebrus happenned and that was ALSO long time ago ...
People like you hating for the sake of hating are why squarenix will keep making their games regardless of your stupids opinions.

QTEs were fun in FFX-2.

Agree with @catch and @Redempteur

Final Fantasy has been doing QTE's for quite some time now. Obviously you haven't played FF8 (Squalls gunblade trigger) or FFX (Overdrives)

You do realize that if Square goes bankrupt they won't be making ANY games right?

I'm not suggesting anyone buy a game they don't want but Square is also making a game called Versus. Do you want that game?

If you do it would make sense for you to want Square to succeed in the game market so they can finish Versus.

If everyone stopped buying games from Square until Versus is released they would go bankrupt before Versus is finished.

Still not too sure about the game and more than likely won't be buying it :/. Honestly could see myself buying Final Fantasy Origins instead of XIII-2

What is Final Fantasy Origins?
Megaman_nerd  +   1408d ago
FFI & FFII for 10 bucks on the PSN store.
Myst  +   1408d ago
It has Final Fantasy I and II on it remastered a PS classic title.

No full party control=no buy! Final Fantasy needs to revert back to that.

i allready preordered =D i liked the demo. and i didnt hate ff13 as much as some claim to.
geniusgamerdoc  +   1408d ago
Cool.. Same with me aswell. Preordered xiii-2
juniorpop  +   1408d ago
who else got a boner from the pic?
elda  +   1408d ago
day 1 buy!
Bordel_1900  +   1408d ago
I'm not buying this. The next SE game I'm buying is Versus, if it sucks I done with SE.

All of you Final Fantasy fans need to grow up. I've played every Final Fantasy game from the Final Fantasy from the NES and i love playing Final Fantasy XIII-2. Who cares if its not the same anymore, the series is good and it will continue to stay good. Do you honestly think that the developers want to keep doing the same thing over and over again. Just like your favorite music artist changes up there music because there tired of doing the same thing. Then you betray them because they changed. You guys needs to to get over it. Can't wait for XIII-2 to come out and i already know its going to be good. So you can troll me all you want. And go ahead and say i'm not a true final fantasy fan because i bet 90% of you haven't even played the NES Final Fantasy game, so how could you be a true Final Fantasy Fan?

You sir, just got a bubble up. Well said. Couldn't agree more. Developers get creatively fatigued doing the same crap over and over again. Every FF will change up, some people are too sentimental or rely on nastolgia.
BigDollarZoe954  +   1407d ago
Well said couldn't say it better
Tenkay23  +   1407d ago
God dammit this is just my opinion but .....

I find Lightning so hot haha.

I don't mind QTE's, the demo showed how they can be used to stagger bosses instead of grinding a bosses chain gauge, it's much better IMO.

I'm not really sold on QTEs improving a game.
