Jenseits der Zeit, des Schicksals und aller Vorstellungskraft Das Konsolendebüt von FINAL FANTASY in HD verfügt nun über einen Nachfolger. FINAL FANTASY XIII-2 wurde mit dem Ziel entwickelt, die Qualität seines Vorgängers in jeder Hinsicht zu übertreffen.

Es geht nicht mehr darum, sich seinem Schicksal zu stellen. Gestalte deine eigene Zukunft und verändere die Welt!

Gemeinsam mit ihren Freunden hat Lightning die seit Jahrhunderten regierenden falschen Götter besiegt. Doch jetzt ist sie unauffindbar. Niemand weiß, wohin die tapfere Kriegerin verschwunden ist...
Auch der gefundene Friede scheint nur von kurzer Dauer. Nach dem Einschlag eines Meteoriten tauchen seltsame Verzerrungen auf, die blutrünstige Monster mit sich bringen. Inmitten dieses Chaos erscheint ein geheimnisvoller junger Mann. Er behauptet nicht nur, aus der Zukunft zu kommen, sondern auch, dass Lightning lebt - und wartet.

Please fix this game SE

To anyone interested buying, it is possible to get this game working if you are comfortable patching in fixes manually. Thanks to the hard work of the community, fans have made it possible to play this on PC again.
Even with the fixes I have had 2 crashes so far, one of them requiring a reboot of the computer to be able to launch again. Luckily the game is fairly generous with its autosave and I didnt lose significant progress either time.

This game is very polarizing for me. I gave it a thumbs up, but it's borderline. Where do I start? I guess the first place to start is with your main characters. Rather than following the heroes from the first game, you're stuck with the wallflower Serah and a new face, Noel. That's it. No additions to your party members, no changes to your roster. You're stuck with these two for the entire ordeal. This wouldn't be a problem if they had some personality, but they're sadly about as bland as cheap rice crackers.

The combat system is recycled from the first game. The first problem some of you might've noticed is that this really doesn't work well with only two members in your team, so who gets to fill the third slot? Serah, lacking any kind of prior combat experience, inexplicably gains the power to recruit monsters to the team and becomes an instant warrioress the instant she's given a bow. To match her new combat prowess her outfit is magically transformed overnight as well. Because, why not?

Okay, so the characters are a boring and the combat has become Pokemon lite-edition but surely the storyline keeps things ticking right? Wrong. The storyline is a mess. Instead of a continuation of the original, we get time travel. This basically gave SE free rein to destroy established canon whenever they wanted since rewriting history is basically the entire plot of the game.

During some parts of the game you can choose dialogue options to get some exposition and ask questions. These don't really do much, although you're rewarded with items based on your responses. I personally hate Noel, so lamented the fact that none of the choices allowed me to treat him with the contempt he deserved. Noel acting almost like a love rival for Snow doesn't help to make him very likeable either, and you're stuck with him for the whole game.

Okay, so it sounds like a rather scathing review all said and told, so why the thumbs up? Simply because when you set aside the plot and the characters, you get to the gameplay and it actually does this well. The monster system, while ridiculous, is actually well fleshed out and meaningful. Each one can be levelled individually and you can even customize their appearance thanks to 'adornments'. The areas are lively and interesting and as dumb as throwing a moogle sounds, it adds a mechanic which allows you to collect distant items which enables Square-Enix to hide secrets around the maps.

The gameplay is actually really GOOD, and that's why it deserves a thumbs up even if the overall plot and characters are less than stellar. Also, throwing a moogle into Noel's face at full force is surprisingly theraputic sometimes.

The game that starts off a fun promising romp though time, and ends with the writers suddenly taking a huge dump, seemingly just to hype the next game. Storywise nothing that happens really makes any sense, increasingly so as it progresses, and at the end I'm facepalming and suspending belief over and over again just to finish the story.

The combat system is a decent improvement over XIII if you like pet collecting mechanics.

I thought it was a super disappointing game, I'll think hard before playing any more newer final fantasy titles. And the PC port is hot garbage, you'll spend ~2 hours just fixing all the bugs to make it playable.

After an hour of troubleshooting I managed to get past the tutorial. I had to disable the cloud sync and download the 4GB patch (look it up). From reading others reports it seems with each windows update it gets worse but now mine is totally playable. Would recc if you don't mind going through the hassle, sad the game is literally unplayable w/o the user fixing it.

Short review: Didn't like story as much as 13 but I liked Noel a lot. Gameplay features a ton of improvements that I love and overworld exploration is greatly improved. Good pacing and was just a really fun game. If you played through 13 and weren't the biggest fan, I would recommend checking this out.

PORT QUALITY: It's really bad but just do like 10 minutes of google (I know you shouldn't have to do that but it's not that hard) and I got pretty near on par performance of the original 13 except some occasional framerate drops and not great performance in demanding areas. Game was more than playable though on an i5-6600K and RX480. ALSO you can easily patch in DLC costumes that are missing due to licensing.

Also the music slaps hard like 13, but in it's own way.

Fantastic improvement over FFXIII! This game is actually fun! FFXIII was poorly executed and one big steaming pile of no-fun. FXIII-2 gets a 'no' recommendation because it's beyond shameful that Square Enix relies on users downloading the community released 4GB patch to keep the game from crashing (As of April, 2020).

Outside of that, the game importantly addresses every single issue I had with FFXIII. And there were a lot! Battles no longer feel like tedious filler. Maps feel more organic and less linear. The game overall is less linear. Load times are better. Although not quite as epic, the story is told better. Leveling system is way better across the board. There's probably more improvements I can't recall as I'm trying to suppress my memories of FFXIII. If interested, you can read my review of FFXIII with the understanding that everything I hated about FFXIII is actually done well in FFXIII-2.

what can i say about this...
it has its ups and it has its downs. IMO the original was much better, but this one is still a great game.
there is a lot of good changes and a lot of bad, combat is more fluid in this one which is great and the fact you can capture the monsters and use them in your team is the best thing ever. the story is still amazing which is great. the problems are they have added quick time events which are just annoying and unnecessary. when you've played it so much like i have when it 1st came out and don't want to watch the scenes anymore, its annoying you cant skip most of them because of the quick time events. plus they have added a bunch of puzzles and quiz's into the game just to make it take longer to collect all the fragments. when your a 100%er its just time consuming trying to do it all and the game would of been better without. also in the original you would auto jump up obstacles and now you have to press a button to climb up stuff which is just irritating when you've spent over 100 hours on the 1st one.
combat 8/10
story 10/10
visuals 7/10
overall i would say if you love final fantasy game its worth a play if you have played the prequel.
without the game will be confusing and not worth it, if you see it on sale grab it.

- The game is stuttering, you can not set any graphic settings other than resolution, shadow and anti aliasing (my system is RX480, 16gb mem, i7-4771
Even lowest settings does not change a thing.

- Standard keyboard settings (you can not set the keys yourself, I like to play with numpad)

Buy at your own risk!

I wasn't a fan of this particular episode of FF for two reasons.

Firstly, the PC version is really buggy - frequent crashes with loss of progress, sound issues (couldn't play through a headset without a loud buzzing) and resolution problems. Ended up downloading a patch (not from the developers) to fix the crashing but still, shouldn't happen.

Secondly, I found the story really haphazard. Without ruining it, lots of jumping around different locations, so much so that it got difficult to keep track of the story. One of the reasons I enjoy the FF series is that they're typically pretty linear, which makes a nice change from the other more open world RPGs that I play. I didn't have that experience with this game.

???? - 1 star

You've probably played FF13 thinking you want to play this next. I'd advice that you should be satisfied with FF13's ending. This will take you on a roller coaster ride you probably don't want to get into. Then again, if you're really bored, have time, and an FF fan; have at it. There's nothing wrong playing this, just that other games exist that might be worth more your time.

Before everything, I'd like to say I won't consider the quality of the port in my rating but only how good the game is.

Talking about the port it is bad, garbage even, and it is a shame that a company as big as Square Enix allow such port, and show that they do not care much about their PC players since they never bothered to fix any of those problems.

Most problems can be solved by a fan patch and steam cloud turned off as the game crash if the cloud is on.

Now that we're done talking about how crap the port is I can tell my opinion on the game itself.


8/10.

I have to say I wasn't expecting much playing this game after playing the first one that I heavily disliked but to my surprise this game was actually better in many ways, it fix most of the problems of the first game even the famous linearity problem that was never a problem to begin with imo.

You do not necessarily need to play the first game in order to understand the second one, there is a menu called beginner's guide that sum up the entirity of the first game, BUT I think you'll enjoy more the second one if you play the first one first, for obvious reasons, a lot of the characters in the second game are returning characters from the first one you'll be more emotionally invested in the game if you play the first one before, even if you don't like those characters, the two protagonists are new tho (half new in Serah's case).

The story that was one of my biggest complain about the first game and is now quite good actually, it was enjoyable, maybe a bit too much sometimes, but really, I liked the journey it was definitely interesting, also there is finally a memorable villain character in the game, and I enjoyed it, the two mains characters aren't awful either, Serah isn't the most interesting but I found Noel quite good and the mystery around him is definitely a big part of why the game is good.

The gameplay is very similar to the first game, they fixed the gameover if your main character die which help a lot to not be frustrated, the game is easier aswell which might not be the best for everyone, and they added a monster taming part in the game that while not awful didn't really interest me that much, the monster variety in the game isn't it's strong point and the monster design is lacking, it is necessary to have good monsters to progress as they often have things that Serah and Noel tend to lack, it isn't necessary to grind much to have good enough monsters tho, truth be told I only had to get better one before the last chapter.

The soundtracks has some nice tracks and some awful one, the crazy chocobo song for example I do not know who thought it was a nice idea, but it definitely wasn't, some other tracks are nice and I'd say I prefer the soundtrack of the second game compared to the first.

The level design is million times better as well, the levels are less greyish and much more enjoyable, I had a huge problems with the maps of the first game, I enjoyed a lot those of this one except one of the last map that you'll have the pleasure to see if you play the game.

There is more post game content than the first game but it's shorter, less running around, less need to be grinding to be able to defeat monsters and again a way less difficult game, you need less strategy to do the bosses which is probably a worse thing, it doesn't push the fighting system as much as the first game does but I'd say overall it's better again you have different task to do, many ways to do, you collect fragment to complete the game, you xp with each of them, you have mini games and a casino, there are cities and it feels like there is life unlike the first game again where you only fight from the beginning to the end and there is no soul to be seen.

The DLC aren't good, don't expect anything great out of them, maybe the colisseum actually have it's use since it can add a challenge later on in the game with strong memorable bosses and long fights, you can eventually collect some powerful monsters with it too, but since you're done with the game after it whats the point ? The two others dlc aren't worth much, the Lightning story was a pain in the ass for me to do, it was really uninteresting but I did it for the story sake, it felt like a chore, and you have to die and retry to be able to succeed in it, or maybe if you're good enough you can find a challenge in it, but thats pushing it heavily.

Sazh's dlc is about minigames and isn't very interesting either, I guess it's nice for a change of pace sometimes but you unlock it after the ending of the game, and the story is very barebone in it, I wouldn't call it a nice dlc, not at all.

Overall I'd say 2/10 for the DLC and thats only cause the colisseum is pushing them up.

biased review incoming:
It's not the best final fantasy and it's far from decent too. The story is a convoluted mess and characters are super clichéd.

The xiii trilogy is super cheesy but I enjoyed it for that. Well I may be a little biased in this review because I started FFXIII when I was in a hard time and it held a special place in my heart so I can't bring myself to bad-mouth this entry.

Cons:
- crash too much, need a fan patch
- it just doesn't feel good to play it
- messy story, clichéd character
- pretty much everything

Pros:
- soundtrack is bomb
- cheesy lines actually makes the world a better place to live in

A much more non-linear game than part 1, it starts out lacking a bit of direction. However, if you enjoyed the first installment -- for the story, the characters, the music -- then do keep going. Around half-way, things really pick up. The game has possibly the best writing I've seen for a time-travel story, and wonderfully expands on the universe established in XIII.

Two technical notes:
* For those experiencing crashing, you can disable steam cloud for this game.
* For those experiencing low frame-rate on NVIDIA cards (I'm on a GTX 1070 Ti), you can enable the following three settings in the latest NVIDIA drivers to speed up the FFXIII renderer: (i) Threaded Optimization:On, (ii) Triple Buffering:On, and (iii) Vertical Sync:Fast.

I love this game. The story and game play all fit in well within the FF13 universe. There are countless reviews and even Wikipedia to help you determine the value of the story. But as a 25+ year player of virtually every FF, I personally thought this entry was great.

Your purchase should hinge on the quality of the port. 5 years ago, I'd have told you to not buy it. thanks to some astonishingly talented fans, 2020 is the perfect time to finally play this game. Check the Community section in Steam for this game, and look for the 2020 fix guide. If you know how to unzip a compressed file, you can fix this game and play it in glorious 4k 60fps. It's about as easy as it gets when it comes to fan-made mods to fix PC ports. Currently working on my 2nd playthrough since 2016 and I'm enjoying it SO much more with these fan fixes. have a great day.

I love this game, but this is a terrible port. Most of the three hours I have played so far have been the opening sequence because of how frequently this crashed, plus me trying to figure out and testing out fixes. If you are willing to go out of your way to find fixes and patches for this game, then you might enjoy this. If you prefer to buy a game and just play it, then this is definitely not for you. For those that are willing to patch this game to make it work, this is the best guide I have found and implemented to make it work: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=2038838545

There is NO Support for this game! NONE whatsoever! It crashes if the resolution setting is changed to any option other than the preset one. So if you have a high resolution monitor, the graphics looks horrible. The previous game Final Fantasy 13 had the option of using a controller and the applications in the game would change to match, however Final Fantasy XIII-2 does not have this feature, although you can use a controller to play the game the settings are set for keyboard which messes up gameplay. It crashes way to often! this port was poorly done please please please provide support! If you're able to overcome the constant crashing the game overall seems to be poorly put together. Its like the developers decided to go a completley different route compared to the first Final Fantasy XIII and do what they can to make it as non linear as possible.

I bought this game to adapt my Final Fantasy collection. Graphic and game play are really beautyful from my point of vie - BUT - the biggest issue now is that you cannot see very much of it as the game keeps crashing immeadetly without reason and error message. This is so bad. I uninstalled the steam version now and installed a version without steam which worked, after playing the first 3 hours, without any interruption or crash, even with highes settings.

This was... interesting.
Strange choices were made for FFXIII-2... and given how unpopular the opinions I heard of XIII were over here, I'm kinda surprised it got a sequel in the first place.

I didn't like this one. It was a close thing. The gameplay was mostly fine. It was just let down by the story elements.
Arguably it is necessary for the trilogy as a whole... since things happen... but... well...

I get a bit bothered when fiction starts playing around with vast spans of time a bit too casually without really exploring the necessary consequences of bouncing back and forth hundreds of years. Not to go into too much detail... but the plot of FFXIII-2 is a complete mess. There are holes EVERYWHERE that never get even close to patched. The whole thing is a sequence of bad choices and... honestly... the entire game is a waste.
I suppose this is a bit spoily to mention, but the main characters completely fail to achieve anything throughout the course of their journey. It really was a complete waste of time... to the extent that it being such is actually lampshaded in the 3rd game.
Things change, but they're all achieved by the antagonists. And would be so without any need for any playable characters doing anything. You could spend the entire game just sitting around staring at trees and going nowhere and the outcome would ultimately be the same.

Still... you do actually need to know what happened between XIII and LR to make sense of the latter, so I suppose there is that.


Oh, and some of the music in this game was neat. They were very experimental with it. Some of the music was awful and, as noted, some was neat. I'm talking about the Crazy Chocobo, as I'm sure you guessed.

The PC port is bad, however it's easily fixable through community patches and works perfectly fine. If you're worried about getting this on PC or console. Just get the PC version and follow a Patch guide

Story-wise the sequel was a mess due to it messing around with time, time travel and timeline changes. This does have better combat than the original and a lot more easier enemies, an amazing soundtrack that is doubled when you are in the Mog Clock mode and IMO is a great sequel, not to mention a ton of replayability with the rare enemies and trying to capture every monster.

I just want to put this out there.

I hated the original ff13. Easily my least favorite game in the series up to this point. For years I have put off playing this game because of how bad of a time I had in the original game.

I started playing here.... and then the game crashed. Never fear, though! I looked up a guide to get this game running as smoothly as possible! Then, the game still crashed, albeit, not as much.

After I got things running stabely enough.... the game was actually... fun? Story is already better imo and the combat opens from the get go so there is much more to do at the start. This is especially useful as the story isn't exactly the best.

At about the six hour point, I have still had a multitude of crashes. I decided to throw in the towel.

I might pick up this game for around 5 dollars on a sale and play it through xbox backwards compatibility or something. As is, this PC port is horrendous in just about everyway. Crashes so much even when you follow guides to prevent it.

TLDR: game is good up till the six hour point, but PC port is trash. Pick up this game elsewhere.

Final Fantasy 13 2 continues the Square-Enix’s run of terrible ports, with this one being worse than Final Fantasy 13’s which I didn’t think was possible. This time around it not just bad porting (buttons are hard mapped to the keyboard even when using a controller, have to use keyboard to exit game) that you have to worry about, there are also ground breaking bugs that cause constant crashes to the desktop to deal with if you don’t perform a few google searches first. This is a crying shame, as being the direct sequel to FF13 it boasts much improved game mechanics, a more focused story with characters that are enjoyable to follow, less character management and an easier crafting system. It’s a great game to play, marred by the fact that it was ported in the last 5 years and still being riddled with game breaking bugs that require a few fixes to make things workable.

You don’t need to play the previous entry to get a rough catch up of previous events (there is a very quick review available in the main menu), however you would be doing yourself a major disservice by not finishing the first entry before starting this one. The game starts during the previous games ending, and focuses on quickly introducing a raft of new background lore which drives the entire story. Without spoiling the story, Sarah (Lightning’s sister) and Noel (a human from 700 years in the future) embark on a time traveling journey to bring lightning back to existence and resolve a host of time paradoxes as she has been written out of reality due to someone trying to change the events of the past. The first ½ hour is confusing, but unlike the previous game it gets much clearer after that and stays enjoyable right to the end. I loved the concept of the future changing the past (so it aligns with the past, preventing grandfather paradoxes) which is something that’s not often explored in games that deal with time. Because the game only focuses on Sarah and Noel, the story isn’t anywhere as disjointed as the previous entry.

This also translates into much improved gameplay as you are only focusing on 2 characters that are always in the party, with the third slot being monsters you can capture and raise which is the biggest change compared to the previous entry. Each monster is locked to its class, but can have other monsters infused into it to get abilities it wouldn’t usually be able to receive. While you can ignore this function in the game if you want (just levelling up the 3 monsters you can have in your team at the same time is enough to finish the game), this system does allow you to create some outrageous combos that truly buff your team. Also upgrading characters is much easier with a singular job tree rather than a separate 6 to manage, with CP being much easier to come by (there isn’t a need to grind in this game). Bonuses when levelling up jobs are locked to extra strength, magic or life, and are applied based on each crystal size (the bigger crystals give more, and the bonuses differ based on what class is upgraded). This makes it quite easy to plan ahead to make the characters much stronger than what they would be if you just dump points randomly. Monsters are fed other monster drops to upgrade a set stat. It also removed the annoying crafting system of the first game, a weapons strength and magic are now fixed. While the jobs stay the same as FF13, you unlock all jobs fairly early in the game so you get a lot more use out of the paradigm system.

After the previous games linear path, FF13 2 is mostly a free for all, go anywhere you want affair. The story is structured around resolving time paradoxes that have arisen, but there are a ton of side quests and different time periods that are available to explore. To open a lot of these side areas you are required to thoroughly explore each area and complete side quests, many which span across different time lines. Many of the objects are hidden exceedingly well, you could spend hours looking so using a guide might be recommended for some quests or exploring some areas. There are a few quests that require in-depth knowledge of not only this game, but the previous entry that require a guide to finish. You also have the option of go to a casino and play on the slots or chocobo racing to mix things up.

Visually the looks great much like its predecessor, though there are less areas to explore. Because the game revolves around visiting the same areas in different times (or alternate realities) each area can look different, but it cuts down on the total amount of areas to explore. This game is set entirely on Gran-Pulse, with some new cities and places outside the flow of time. Each area can be revisited at any point (with main story events being replayed from the start or continuing from where you previously left an area), though each area/time will contain many secrets and different enemies. Most of the assets have been reused from the previous games, with only a few newer characters being introduced. You now have the option of changing your outfit and adding accessories. There are plenty of in game movie sequences, however they don’t outstay their welcome and do propel the story forward. To mix things up there are a lot of QTE events during battles and movie sequences, which can help you end fights quicker if you succeed in them.

The voice acting is still excellent, though they dropped the Australian accents of the people of pulse- (Fang and Vanille still have their accents). Having the previous characters play bit roles wasn’t too bad, and the scripts for them were a lot better this time around. There is a lot less whingeing and crying this time around by Hope, as well as a lot less angst by the remaining cast, which makes it much more enjoyable to listen to. The music is outstanding, with a mix of full vocal as well as different styles. There is one heavy metal fight song (it reminds me of DMC series), as well as a wild chocobo which I will miss listening to.

As mentioned before the bugs are ground breaking, but can be fixed. Without doing anything I found the game constantly crashed when changing camera views (which happens at the end of battle). I fixed this by running a 3rd party patch which increases the amount of RAM it can use. This stopped the crashes, but sometimes enemies wouldn’t display. I had to turn off Steam cloud saves to resolve that, and the game has been fine since. You shouldn’t have to put up with these errors for a AAA release, but at least you can fix them.

The 3 DLC’s are included and explain what Snow, Lightning and Sazh are doing. All 3 become available after the main game is finished and reward you with extra monster summons (in the shape of the listed characters or other well know characters from the FF series. I would only bother with the lightning one, as it’s a canonical ending, taking a few hours to finish the fight. Sazh’s one has you focusing on playing poker, while Snow has you fighting in the coliseum against some well know characters from other FF games..

If you are wanting to 100% the game, it’s a much easier task this time around. You level up much quicker, and only a few of the fights right at the end will prove to be difficult with a fully upgraded party. One quests will require fighting one enemy at least once, which is where most of the time will be spent end game.

What? Reviewing the game after playing one hour?
[strike]Yeah, I 100% didn't arrrr the game and I don't have a 70 hours save file either.[/strike]

I don't understand how anybody who had the patience to beat the boring XIII would come play the sequel, and dislike it. I don't think the game deserves a 6/10, and I kind of liked it.

And, for the price, I didn't mind following a 5 minutes tutorial to fix the game.

I came back because I feel like getting the achievs.

Holy shit !
The story is just insanely good and leads directly in the next game which is really cool.
Most of the issues of the port of the first part are fixed in this game (aside from a bit of substitle delay and stuff). One thing that really don't like is when characters talk while moving around and the dialogue just stops if you enter combat during it. The only other issue is the fact that despite the fact you can basically dodge random encounters with a timer, you sometimes can't do anything because of the enemy going way faster than it should or popping on you thus making the encounter unnavoidable: This is an issue for some parts of the game where this problem feels like a fight every 3 fucking steps while having to explore or cover long distances or on a moving maze...

Even with those issues the game is worth it because of how good the story even though the true ending leads directly into the sequel (DO NOT STOP AT THE CREDITS, THOSE ARE NOT THE END. PLAY A PLACE YOU UNLOCKED AFTER THOSE. GET TO OTHER CREDITS: THAT'S THE REAL TRANSITION INTO THE NEXT GAME.)

If you have an AMD 5000 series GPU, do not purchase this.
The game is already a bad port to the PC. The stuttering issue from searching for a controller is still very much here in this version. I had occasional crashes and freezes which were annoying, but did not keep me from playing.
However, ever since I upgraded my GPU from a Radeon 290 to 5500 XT, I have been experiencing hard freezing issues in nearly every single fight in the game. I have scoured the internet for a fix and literally nothing has worked. I've tried everything from compatibility mode to supposed fixes from github. I was fooled for about 15 minutes into thinking that I had fixed the game, only to return to it later and have it hard freeze on me again. I've been trying to fix the issue for three days now with little to no success. I'm at my wits end with this and I'm about to uninstall it from my computer.
I'm really sad about it. I love Final Fantasy and I really enjoyed 13. But please, do not buy this game if you have an AMD Radeon 5000 series GPU. It's not worth the headache. Look up a playthrough on youtube, or dig out your old PS3 and find a copy for it there if you have to play it. Don't waste your time or money on this garbage PC port.

Playing this game right after finishing a completionist run of FFXIII it's really apparent just how much they changed for the better compared to the original. The story pacing is much better and the plot isn't nearly as convoluted as the first game, your party is no longer a revolving door of people, side quests are varied and include more story rather than just being kill quests, and the endgame/postgame has a whole host of objectives rather than just farming turtles for hours on end for gil and cp.

I wasn't sure how I would feel about monster capturing being introduced into the game but they're well incorporated into the gameplay. You can do as much or as little as you want to finish the story and even for the end/postgame objectives there's a bunch of monsters aimed at mid-endgame growth that require less resources to level but can easily help you conquer all end/postgame tasks for the achievements. And for those who really love monster capturing/raising there's a fairly in-depth system for raising and tweaking your monsters to build them out just the way you want.

The devs also did a great job in adding fragment skills which are accessible as your collect more fragments and progress the game. These include: increasing or decreasing the encounter rate, increasing cp gain, and increasing monster capture chances among other perks. Having a system in the game to tweak playstyle preferences as a reward for completing side objectives in the game is a really great idea and something I think other JRPGs should implement more often.

My one and only gripe with the game is the optimization. There is a great guide here on steam that provides solutions to fix or mitigate issues the game has but it's a shame that fan-made patches are required at all to make the game function as it should. A problem that cropped up somewhat frequently was reduced frame rate, it was never unbearable but it wasn't pleasant. Thankfully this only occurred in the most populated of areas even though I have a PC that's 4-5 years old at this point. During my roughly 50 hours of playtime I only had the game hard crash on me once after applying the fan-made patches, which I think is a pretty good shout out to the effectiveness of the fan-made solutions.

All in all it's a shame that not many people played this game due to the reputation that the first game garnered from fans. But for anyone that enjoyed or didn't mind the shortcomings of the first game, or is even just interested in revisiting these games, XIII-2 was a very enjoyable journey from beginning to end and in my opinion worth checking out.

This is probably the game that has frustrated me the most EVER to the point where I couldn't even finish it.

--
Going a bit more into detail on the different aspects...

The start of the game was actually really enjoyable and I started getting into the story without any bigger problems, however, that only lasted for maybe 10-15 or so hours. I do feel like the story had potential but suffered due to poor game design and story progression experience.

The amount of times I got lost when trying to progress forwards in the main story isn't even funny to think about. It feels like I spent more time on the internet searching for clear directions on story progression than following the directions the game itself gives the player. This right here is probably my biggest problem with this game.

And again, the battles were enjoyable for the first 10-15 or so hours, however, when all you do is walk around aimlessly for hours while trying to understand a story segment, the random encounters become nothing more than a chore.

I liked many of the other aspects of the game, such as the Bestiary, team building options, the music and the characters etc. However, if the game design can't make the game experience enjoyable with a smooth story progression and clear directions, none of the other aspects really matter.


In short:
The game is 80% searching for answers and wandering around aimlessly, trying to find wild artifacts and more.
10% enjoying a actual meaningful battle.
and 10% enjoying the other aspects of the game (Filling the Bestiary, creating team builds etc.)

First off, I LOVE this game. It's one of my favorites. BUT as others are saying, this version is completely unplayable.
Crashed to desktop several times when autosaving or manual saving.
Tried to get around the problem with the fix of turning off steam cloud saves.
Now I get caught in endless loading screens, having to re-enable steam cloud saves (while the game is running) to get it to load, which sometimes works, sometimes crashes the entirety of steam.
I can't believe how long ago this game came out and it still has not been fixed.

The game is a mess - cringe characters, story and presentation. The battle system is simply a mashing of X button over and over - one can play holding a gamepad with one hand smashing that x button. It's definitely way worse game than FF13 - and nowhere near older FF's.

It's also worth to note that the PC port is full of bugs, and it looks - given the Steam release date - that the developer/publisher won't bother to fix them.

So avoid even if it'll be on discount.

Save before going to a new timeline (crash randomly happens)
Save before cutscenes (crash randomly happens)
and here is the best part....SAVING randomly crashes.
Expect spending countless hours doing the same thing over and over trying to progress due to crashing and not saving.

[h1]It lets you play as Serah what else do you need?[/h1]

I'm a huge fan of Final Fantasy series, maybe not hardcore fan but this is one of my favorite game series. And Final Fantasy XIII-2 in my opinion is one of the worst games in the whole series. But that doesn't mean it's bad. Final Fantasy XIII lacked a lot of things which made the game a FF game. But I really loved combat in that game. While this game retains very similar combat system it simply lacks characters. You can't build a team since it has very limited playable characters. You play as Serah (oh how I wanted to play as her, it's like dream come true, cutie) and Noel. You can have third party member as a captured monster. They also can evolve and you have quite a bit of choice which monster you want to use. Other than that the combat is very similar to FF XIII – it's fast but it allows some tactical gameplay and isn't as boring as turn based combat. Yes I get it turn based combat has a lot more tactical possibilities but most of the time you're fighting regular monsters which are easy to beat and you run into them a lot, so waiting each time while clicking one button becomes boring after your 100th fight.

This time Serah and Noel embark on a journey to find Lightning. They travel through time to various locations some being new and some you've visited in previous game. Although those locations are quite different when you travel there because of the time period you travel to.
There are a lot of locations to explore. From vast open areas to some weird sci-fi-like mazes and cities. What I loved about the setting was that the game feels pretty dark, the worlds you travel to are desolate and the whole atmosphere is like that. It's still pretty but feels very eerie, grim, dismal (can't find a word for it).

So the whole gameplay is exploring those areas in different time periods and fighting enemies alongside doing some side quests. But there's one gameplay mechanic I hated, I hated it to the degree it almost ruined the whole game for me. It's clock puzzles. When you get there you'll know why. Don't believe me? Google it, someone even made clock puzzle solver. I have no idea why they put this crap into a game.

Of course there a chocobos and moogles so it has at least a bit of Final Fantasy soul. But nearly everything else which made Final Fantasy great is gone just like in XIII.

Graphically it looks surprisingly good considering the age of this game. The game looks really pretty, character models are very high quality (except AI characters) and since the PS3 release the hair modelling still looks great today.
Areas are ranging from ok to good in my opinion. Some could use more work and some look really good.
Since this is an old game, PS3 port, it should run pretty good but don't expect performance to be great. It's straight up PS3 port after all. Porting from PS3 was difficult, besides seeing the game's price it's clear SE did not put a lot of effort into porting this.

Sound design is great as always in the series. Music is very good and in some areas it creates that kind of hopeless, the end of the world mood. Voice acting is good too, I have no complaints.

It's a decent Final Fantasy game. If you enjoyed XII you will enjoy this too. But somehow it feels even smaller than XIII, lacks characters and the whole time traveling is a bit tiring and confusing. But it retained the combat system which makes fighting fun. Get this on sale if you enjoy FF or jrpg's in general.

Pros
  • Good graphics
  • Good soundtrack
  • Fun combat
  • Dark world
  • Having your own monster is fun

Cons
  • Clock puzzles...
  • Only two main characters

This is literally the worst PC release square has ever don't. While most of the final fantasy PC ports aren't all that amazing, at the very least they are functional. I played the entirety of FF 13 with out a single mod or patch needed. Lightning Returns also runs fine. This FUCKING GAMES HOWEVER! Even with all of the community fixes and patches you will still run into random crashes and audio buzzing with 8 channel audio devices.

Square Enix should honestly ashamed at the state of this game. I was able to play this game for quite a bit and decided to uninstall it. Randomly decided to play it again and installed generally all the fixes I did before because playing this game with out them is almost a battle in itself. I don't even have a different computer and no will to trouble shoot this game any longer. Square Enix the way you left this game is just disgusting.

I bet it wouldn't even be that difficult to get this game at least playable in the same way the other two games in this trilogy are. You just wont do it. Which is shitty as fuck.

This game flat-out does not work. It should not be up for sale. And Square Enix should be ashamed of giving one of their flagship titles a PC port that does not even qualify as half-assed.

Upon finishing and quite enjoying XIII (performance issues and slightly obtuse story aside), I decided to see what XIII-2 was about. Sadly, as soon as it launched I ran into a very annoying audio buzzing (fixed by disabling Windows Sonic for Headphones oddly). The issues didn't stop there.

I don't have the highest end PC but it definitely falls within the recommended specs on the store page, yet the game's frame rate was truly appalling, even for enclosed areas. In the starting area of New Bodham the game would freeze entirely and just crash - I know there are some community fixes for common problems, but I just wanted to play the game, not diagnose various bugs and faults.

Normally, I'm willing to accept some issues and rough edges, especially for a game that was released some time ago, but frankly it's just unplayable in its current state.

I have a love/hate relationship with this game. The battle system is really engaging and time jumping is interesting. But, the dialog/cutscenes are SO BAD and SO FREQUENT. I end up skipping half of them and then am not sure where to go next because one scene finally had some useful information instead of one character or another just whining for several minutes about how sad and unfair life is.

Astonishingly bad even by the very low standards set by other FF spinoffs. My Steam record suggests I played for less than three hours; I couldn't take any more after that, but I'd played for too long to be eligible for a refund. Boring gameplay, dreadful characters, ugly visuals and a soundtrack so unpleasant to listen to that I ended up playing with the audio muted. This game was a pure cash grab in true Square Enix form. Give it a miss and go straight to Lightning Returns if you want to extend your time in the FFXIII universe.

Unfortunately, I was only able to get about 5mins deep, before the game kept crashing. I really wanted to get into this, but sadly it is unplayable for me and I do not want to download a whole bunch of outside resources just to make a game work.

Quick note: Most of the dislike reviews are because of a bad port of the game, wich makes it crash sometimes when the game saves automatically.
The good news is that it can be fixed, just search it up on the internet and it´ll pop up, it fixes it all so you can enjoy the game fully :).
I personally found out the story to be delivered in a more fluent way than FF13, due to the characters in FF13 having a hard time to make sense, but in this one they seem to have improved that quite a lot.
If you loved the cutscenes from FF13, oh boy, time for part 2. Although there are some performance issues and frames drop sometimes, but they are still good looking.
Combat remains basically the same, although they chopped some spells and they added some other cool features.
At times the timeline will get very complicated. I found myself stuck several times due to going for sidequests and being incapable of finding where to go to progress with the main story later.
One last tip would be for you to save the master artifacts, they are often needed to progress with the main story, and if you run out, you´ll find yourself having to scan half of the other timelines, or giving up and following a guide.

So playing this game right after Final Fantasy XIII, gives a quite clear idea what Square Enix wanted from this game. They initially tried something new in Final Fantasy XIII, in which some things were appreciated but some were heavily criticised. They took all those good things of initial game and evolved it and tried to address the issues gameplay design wise in this sequel.

First I'm going to talk about the port itself. Overall pc port is mediocre at its best in vanilla form. A lot of people in past have complained about crashes and FPS drops. To resolve or at least to minimise those issue I would suggest going to Final Fantasy XIII-2 PC Wiki page, this has safe links to fan made patches and mods that tries to restore the game. For me after these patches, my gameplay experience was quite enjoyable with only one crash in whole run. Overall FPS was good as well.

Instead of being linear like previous instalment, the sequel gives you multiple areas to explore and travel back and forth as much as you like. This game introduces random encounters again with a slight modified form which I personally liked a lot. Battle system is more responsive and with paradigm shifts animations taking a lot less time to change now. One party leader dying the game does not over but instead the control of the game shifts to the other surviving character. This game only has two playable characters. We can also add third party member as well but that will one of the monsters which we catch while during random encounters. Yes, it also has monster capture elements. The crystarium has also been upgraded. Instead of predefined upgrade nodes we can select the type of stat upgrade we want on the node. To sum up, the gameplay experience has definitely been refined in this game.

Story of this game is about time travel and it can get a little confusing. The story overall takes places in multiple areas in multiple time eras, with time era having its own minor lore. I found protagonist Serah exactly opposite of Lightning, where Lightning was brooding with emotional layer hidden deep within, Sarah is a little bubbly and polite with slight emotional layer on the top. The villain in this game actually feels like a powerful and destructive being which I liked a lot. Overall characters are well defined in this game.

The soundtrack is awesome. Simple enough.

This is a good sequel and I would recommend to play this if you finished and liked Final Fantasy XIII. Even if you didn't liked part 1 enough still give this game a try. It may surprise you.

The game is fun, with lots of stuff happening, and I'd definitely recommend it over many other FFs but...
It crashes. A lot. In 2021. DURING SAVING.

Yes, I can disable Steam cloud saves (sure, why not hurt a free backup solution?) but that leads to infinite save-file reading issue.
So, yeah, crashes or loading your game.

Will try a FFXIII fix + 4gb ram patch, but the taste is already sour.
If you can play this game anywhere else but steam - do so.

P.S. The *gameplay* is copyrighted on YT. GL.

Edit: FFXIII fix + 4gb ram patch fixed most of the issues.
Still, sometimes the game goes into infinite load/save.
Toggle steam cloud save on and off again and if it doesn't stop load/save in 20 seconds - restart the game.

The plot is good - like it better than the ff13 proper, but the recommendation is still no.
It's a broken port, I'm glad I got it on a sale paying a fraction of a regional price.

This port is beyond horrible, FPS is all over the place for no reason and constant crashes (including some so hard they crash steam along with the game). There are pages and pages of fixes on the forum sure but a lot of them require downloading questionable software and quite frankly I just want to sit down and enjoy a game without having to jump through endless hoops just to get it to function.

This is very strange to me since the first game in the ff13 trilogy worked completely fine so I don't know how they screwed this one up so bad.

I'd recommend a do not buy.

If you get the FFXIII Fix recommended in the Steam Communities, XIII-2 runs well and doesn't crash. And if you get the HD Texture Mods from Nexus Mods, XIII-2 looks gorgeous.

I did both and consequently, have been having a ton of fun. The paradigm combat system runs better than ever (no annoying 5 second transition occurring with your first paradigm shift every battle! ^_^ ) . Soundtrack is a real treat, probably better than the first one IMO. And while this is just a personal taste sorta thing, some may disagree I really enjoy having Serah and Noel as protagonists.

So overall, I'd recommend the game highly if you're willing to put in the work to get it running. Doesn't justify how poorly it was optimized to begin with by Square, but it's at least playable and more importantly, enjoyable with some tinkering.
