Mini-games plus jumping through a poorly thought out timeline system makes this one of the most annoying and frustrating games I've ever played. The developers should be fired and sued for the return of their salieries.
FF XIII-2 is no doubt a beautiful game, like it's predecessor. The graphics are fantastic, and the environments look technically impressive.
Unfortunately, all of the technically impressive animation doesn't make for a good game. In a bit about Jazz music, comedian Paul F. Tompkins says it's not enjoyable because it's basically a bunch of musicians playing solos at the same time. Final Fantasy XIII-2 is like that. It might be impressive, but overall it isn't GOOD.
The opening sequence is a giant explosion of action and color and...really nonsense. The story (like in FF XIII-2) immediately seems complex just for the sake of being complex. The characters are largely uninteresting, as well.
TL;DR: Technically impressive, but not enjoyable. Like Jazz music.
It was a good game, but not all that great. I thought it would be better. But like i said it was just an alright game.....You should allready received this games or it will soon be coming.
