I don't understand why FF games ever get good ratings. I guess its because the RPG genre is always starving for titles plus the fact that Square/Enix always pay publishers well to advertise and market it before it drops. The only FF game I ever liked was Tactics (a classic). I hate the ugly characters and graphics, the horrible battle system. Square/Enix characters are the only ones where at some point I say "Hmmm, they make her look pretty good," and then an hour later I find out that she is a he. Try Rogue Galaxy for great graphics, characters and battle system.

This game was way better than FFXIII part 1.
The battle system was relatively the same, except for the third party member is switchable and you're stuck with the regular first two. (Kind of Final Fantasy meets Poke'mon)
Now besides the hideous pants that Noel wears, the character design was great. I haven't checked out the DLC costumes because I'm not paying 2.99 just to see a different look.
Anyway the story was nice. I love the ending, and it makes me wish FXIII-3 Lightning Returns would be out sooner.
As far as Trophies go it took me roughly 65 hours or so to get the platinum. They are all relatively easy to get and not one takes more than an hour after you play through the entire story.
Overall... great game.
