Final Fantasy XIII-2 is the Best Final Fantasy Game - While vastly underrated, Final Fantasy XIII-2 is the best game in the long-running franchise.
Classic flamebait, because everyone knows it's not true
Real rap this is probably one of the best games I have ever played and the best Final Fantasy in a long time for sure. This game is mechanically so much superior to the first one in every aspect that its not even funny. The time travel story was handled incredibly well given its inherent complexity. The only thing I didn't like was the DLC levels even though one of them (Lightning's Requiem) was so good it was worth every penny. When it came to the Xbox One I was hoping and praying that it would come to PS4 but alas no.
It was the best of the XIII trilogy. Best game of the series is hotly contested, but is typically X or lower. I think many were bias against XIII-2 because they were so adamant about not liking XIII.
"It was the best of the XIII trilogy." That's really not saying much. If anything. People are biased against 13-2 because if 13 had been a proper game, the one Square first hinted and teased, then they would have moved on to vs13 which would not be 15. Or as it is otherwise known: FF tourist trip(trap)...
Well, this is the first I’ve ever heard this.
No not even close
Imo the original (XIII) was the best,the second was meh & the 3rd was crap.
Lightning Returns crap? It was easily the best of the three.
I stated imo which means my opinion & I clearly enjoyed the original over 2 & 3. Where you think 3 is the best I think it's the worst.
No way, you stated your opinion? I never would have guessed. Sometimes people like to question opinions - I would've liked to know what you disliked about it, for example.
Good game. Crap story. Even worse 3rd part conclusion.
2nd was trash I liked lighting and the 1st though
You must be 15 years old
XIII was a good game, but the story was nonsensical, and really didn't tie up the story of the first two games at all. It threw away most of the lore. It was almost like it was meant to be another game, with different characters. Had great game play, and decent structure, although it could have done without the time limit for being somewhat open world.
pffffffff no lol.
i liked it but far from the best lol
No No No absolutely NO
That whole trilogy is a bunch of hot garbage.
Guess you haven't played FF 14 Shadowbringers. Nothing can come close this game's magnificent story!
Is this a joke...?
It’s not even top 5
I liked 13 the best then lightning returns, I didnt like the time travel in 13-2
Clickbait, trash article.
X will forever be my favourite. There is no best final fantasy.
If your thirsty than sure.
Ill have whatever it is youre smoking
I feel like 13-2 is better than the original, though the original is a bit more cohesive. You have more to do, Serah is more charismatic than Lightning (less serious, more caring), Caius is a great villain and the monster catching is actually pretty addictive (and I love the battle system).
O P I N I O N, lol
Unpopular opinion but i enjoyed the second and third game. The third one had a decent mix of ATB and action. That, and running around in clouds clothes along with the buster sword with a character nicknamed female cloud in the gaming community felt positively strange.
You need to play more Final Fantasy games
HAHHAHAHA! It's trash just like the entire XIII trilogy. There has not been a genuinely good FF game since XII. And the best one is Final Fantasy VI. ANything XIII is way way way at the bottom. Hell, even Mystic Quest is a better game.
Couldn't disagree more but to each their own.
You're nuts dude. Nuts, but brave.
Wrong, it's the 2nd best FF behind 15
Dont be silly...
This isnt april fools.
It's probably the worst
Maybe best in the XIII-series, which are still the worst of the FF-series :D
I want whatever this writer is smoking
contrary to all popular opinion, including mine: xiii-2 sucked
Not what I would have gone with, but everyone's entitled to a favourite...even if it doesn't line up with popular opinion.
That's a very good joke you're telling.
The whole trilogy of FF XIII was so bad, I couldn't even finish it. It is the only games from the main series that I couldn't finish that wasn't a mmo.
I wish they all just had an original name. What the hell is xiii-2? Do I need to play xIII-1 first? The numbering system is stupid when it gets that high and confusing to people unfamiliar with the games.
I think you mistook the word best with worst, because in the realm of reality its closer to where that waste of time of a so called game would stand, it's probably the Apex of a nonsensical jrpg regards to how bad the story, uninteristing character, gameplay and pacing was
....Right.... The only opinion on Final Fantasy games that will ever matter is my own, and when I think about them I don't waste time comparing them with one another. I mean its Final Fantasy... You either play it or you don't, miss me with the mine is better than yours bs.
It most certainly is an opinion...
I think whoever wrote this must have only played Final Fantasy legends to say something like this.
Final fantasy is like the rap industry. You have a history with great lyrics (story) and great meaning behind those lyrics (stories). Final Fantasy XIII through Final Fantasy XIII-3 is like Mumble rap. You dont know what the hell is going on and nothing make sense.
