Excellent

It's a twist to the FF series.

I personally like this game. It is way better than FF13. It is not so straight foward. The cut scenes are not so great but the game play is nice. I do like how you are able to capture monster crystals and level them up. The story is short but the post'-game gameplay is nice. You have lots to do.

This spin-off is WAY better than what they did to FFX. If you are a FF fan I would recommend getting this game. You will like it.

Another Love/Hate FF13 clone

Well, this sequel is better than FF13 to me. The gameplay feels a lot less restrictive, along with the CP system. The monster upgrades and infusion add a nice element to the already stale game.

I found myself losing interest in the story close to the end. Caius seems like an RPG version of Jean Claude Van Damme in Time Cop! lol

Terrible Ending

Gonna keep this review short and just give my opinion on a few things.

the combat is about the same as 13 with the addition of monsters which have fun special attacks kind of like a limit break.

theres more freedom and your basically always welcome to explore any levels whenever you want once unlocked and when you choose to return to a level it puts you in the exact spot you were standing when you left.

the story is ok, its quite short for a FF game, i finished it in a bout 20 hours, but heres the problem, the ending is terrible, and there are multiple "paradox endings" all of which are bad. this game just has no real conclusion really and almost makes me wish i didnt play it in the first place
