Review: Final Fantasy X-2 HD | oprainfall

Oprainfall: Final Fantasy X-2 HD doesn’t hold a candle to the original title, but I doubt anyone was surprised by that, even when it was originally released a decade ago. Final Fantasy X had a conclusive ending and never needed a sequel in the first place, which I feel is a big part of why Final Fantasy X-2′s story was so poorly executed — they really had nowhere to go with it. That said, the gameplay is actually extremely varied and oftentimes even fun. I wouldn’t suggest that anyone buy this game on its own merits, but the fact that it comes bundled with Final Fantasy X leaves me recommending that you at least try it out for yourself. Who knows, you may end up being able to look past its many cosmetic and narrative flaws, and actually enjoy the rather well-structured gameplay.

The gameplay to this game is pretty awesome.
Everything else though is disappointing.
They should have done a prequel telling Braska, Auron and Jecht's journey to defeat sin. Would have loved to have heard more banter between Jecht and Auron (the spheres you can find in FFX were great).

Never felt so disappointed in my life before, after the long nights in FFX and the grinding, the perfect unparalleled ending, comes this... game.
