I personally loved the story and the sequel just made it so much better. The gameplay is also fantastic... I really don't get it. I guess the game is kind of cutesy but really it is perfect. squalls_revivalI don't think cutesy has anything to do with it. Its the focus of visuals over gameplay that rattles peoples cages. Why? They're old school. Can't blame them. I have my own issues with FFXIII-2. The visuals i love. Story was a bit over the place. Me, i love me a good story. You muck up the story, then we have a problem. The thing that (need to watch my language) annoyed me the most was the ending. TO BE CONTINUED. "Wait, what? I have to buy part 3." Like i'm made of money. Waiting for FFX HD patiently. FFXIII-3 can go to hell. For now anyways. We all know i'll end up getting it day 1. I'll play it non-stop. Then if i see TO BE CONTINUED 1 more time... Well i'll leave it at, it'll be bad. For a few days.:P
Then the cycle continues. Lol can't help but think of FFX when i say that.
