Good

Despite what it lacks, it's still fun.

If you liked FF XIII, then you'll probably like this one. Since it's a sequel, it's pretty much the same game with different characters. I didn't think the graphics were really THAT improved from the first one, the story line is weaker, and the customization system feels somewhat less than XIII's (yeah, you can capture and upgrade monsters but it's really not as cool as it sounds). That being said, it's still a fun game to play. The extra fetch missions and places to explore make it feel less linear than its predecessor and the real-time fight system carried over from XIII puts an emphasis on strategy. You can either win a fight in a few seconds, or lose one if you're not trying.

And no, it's not FF VII, make your peace with it people. If you want to play VII, then get a ps1. There's entirely too many reviews from people who just want Square to remake FF VII and refuse to accept anything that deviates from that agenda. It's been over 15 years since Aeris died, get over it.

Final Fantasy XIII-2 is a solid and fun, albeit forgettable, addition to the series.

Well, what can I say, it blows. I've played Final Fantasy since it came out on the NES and this game is horrible. There isn't anything I can say about it being fun. I mean, trying to find Lightning in the game and that's it? This seemed like a wild goose chase from ----. This kind of storyline is something I would expect a 2nd grader to come up with, not a development team at Square. No summons, no characters to change up within the team, no true customization - if you consider the different fighting styles in the game (the whole 6 you can assemble) customizable, then you have blinders on my friend. This game is as linear as playing old-school centipede, but at least I get the point. If you want a truely great FF game to play, go find 2,3 or 7 and find out what a decent storyline/gameplay looks like. Square, get your head out of your --- for making this kind of trash.
