@Ovirew: In terms of sheer breadth of content, abso-fucking- lutely. My first time beating the game I clocked in at 92 hours, only getting settlements up to 3 stars. There is an astounding amount of content here, between the individual area quests (loads for each new Titan you explore (there are a whole bunch of them in this game not just 2)) and the character/ Blade quests, it'll keep you very busy if you want some bang for your buck. Mechanically, its battle system is superficially similar, but this game is all about building up to super attacks, whereas the first was more about chaining combos. It takes a while to get used to, that's for sure. But if you really want to squeeze every drop out of this game, you're in for a long playtime. That's not even including NG+, which adds even more skills for characters to unlock as well as new Rare Blades (essentially weapons, but that's grossly oversimplifying what a Blade is in this universe). So yeah, long story short, if you're looking for a similarly massive amount of content as the first game, 2 definitely has you covered, even without the season pass.
