Final Fantasy X-2 Review by: deggleFinal Fantasy X-2 Review
Okay guys for this review I tried something a little different for it hope you all enjoy it though.
Graphics 8 : Okay these Graphics were fine but weren't really stepped up most of things were the same as the first game which did prove to disappoint. But the battle graphics were better looking for when you did a class change it was pretty cool looking as they like transform in battle. The cut-scenes were played such a great part as there was a lot of them. There was two kinds of cut scene to me it was like a normal game cut scene where the characters will run around or talk to someone and the other where was trying to portray a human life look to it. So these Graphics really helped out this game
Bad Things : Most of the time the Graphics had a little static glitch sometimes and sometimes the characters did look very odd and annoyed me sometimes. And even in cut scenes a little glitch would just get in the way. Another bad thing about the Graphics is that most of them were the same thing you saw in the first game not much of a change at all.
Sound/Music 9 : The Music and Sounds were the most worked on and took a lot of time for this game. The opening theme of this game is a song which in my mind was showing sadness memories of the past and how eternity goes on the fact the song's name is Eternity Memory Light waves. The sound effects were in fact so realistic I sometimes thought when Yuna attacked a Monster I thought someone was watching a cop movie for the gun's realistic sound. Most of the soundtrack of this game were depressing sad songs which got you into the feels and were very soothing to the ear. Overall this game's sounds and music were beautiful works.
Bad Things : Most of this games music were heavily synthesized and really ruined some of the songs and Lot's hated this game for it. Like the boss theme was okay but not great. And most the songs like the battle theme was like trying to hard to sound super great and such but it did get annoying to hear most the time.
Addictiveness 8 : This game was really fun and adventuress most things that make me want to play again are the fun and challenging Side Quests/Missions and one Mini-Game that I really enjoyed playing was you running around an Island with a time limit and a point counter basically you go by yourself and have to shot as many monsters as you can making to the other side of the island. And Lot's of the battles were fun and exploring every area and doing the Dessert Hunt.
Bad Things : Sometimes the Mini-Games would get really annoying especially since the time limit was a little mean as it was sort of fast and was hard to complete some Mini-Games without trying a few times. And trying to get 100% to get the perfect ending was really difficult to earn.
Depth 9 : This game is very long and exciting for the player. So you get a lot of Side Quests and Mini Games to play in this game for a 100% complete but you have to finish each Side Quest of whatever in a specific Chapter of the game where you get a different amount of % for every action and thing you do. So this game is filled with Lot's of Mission to complete before you can move to any place. There are many fun Dungeons, Deserts,Castles, Mountains, and adventures to be had in this game.
Bad things : The depth did go by a little too slow I think they made this game just a little too long as for the average player it usually took 70+ Hours and have not even fully complete the game. As they made it too hard to get 100% and the perfect ending. And way too many choices that could also jeopardize on what you have to do in the game next.
Difficulty 8 : This game had very irritating battles, Bosses, and random people fights that weren't really hard but were annoying to fight because either they were almost always invincible together. And even most of the normal random monster encounters were just too hard to handle and you would have to spend most of your game time grinding and trying to get stronger to actually defeat the monsters without trouble.
Bad things : What they should have done was make this game some what easier because for me and lot's of others it was just too hard. you would have to spend time in a horrible grind spot that only gave you like 10XP until you were a high enough to at least survive a battle in one place. And I also disliked the fact as when you progressed through the game some places you would have to go back to just to complete a mission or get an orb but the monsters would be two times as strong as they were when you first were there.
Story 9 : Okay so this story starts about a few years after the first game's events. So basically you start off in a concert with an opening Cut scene that tells you who the characters are and that Yuna has a doppleganger so with the help of her two best friends and partners because they are Sphere Hunters they look for spheres that grant new classes, For money, and to solve a special mystery (But I won't say cause it's a spolier) As they figure out the Dopple-Ganger is another Sphere Hunter named Leblanc with her two lackeys and grunts So her friends Rikku past thief from the first game and new character Paine who is a quiet swords-woman they give chase to Leblanc but where is Yuna in problem. Find out while playing the game.
Bad things : There wasn't really anything bad with this game's story line but it did get some what repetitive and with all the new characters it was really hard to tell what was going on in the game (Even though that was the point, cause it's a mystery)
Overall: This game was very fun and has tons of great qualities but no game is perfect it also had it's faults I do really recommend this game to you all.
Hope you all enjoyed this Review as I did writing it for you.
