the story line was awesome. only thing about it was that it wasn't as long as i'd thought it would be. FF13 was 3 discs and took like 2 days to beat in all. this one took like 17 hours for me. still, amazing game none the less
I really enjoyed playing this game. I like it better than the one before it, which I hardly liked at all. There were a few things I did not like about it though. I really thought I would have gotten a new party to my team but the whole time it's only been just two, Noel and Serah and whatever monster you setup for them. I would have liked it a lot more if maybe halfway through the game, they met up with Lightning and she became a third member to the party. The other thing I was a little disappointed in was the Coliseum. When I saw that I had unlocked it and that I couldn't fight any monsters yet, I thought perhaps you come back after you beat the game, which I thought would have been a great idea, to keep you in the game after you beat it. But even so, after I beat it, I returned and found that there was still nothing there!! I looked online finally and found that it's really used for downloadable content that you have to pay extra for. :( Either way, just being able to capture and level up monsters was enough for me to keep playing. I enjoyed the story too and even after I've beaten it, I'm still playing finishing up all the other side quest and leveling up my monsters and two characters. At this point I've played about 60 hours worth.
Despite the negatives I think there are more positives and would recommend the game to anyone that likes RPGs.
