So much more than war...
By shandog137
Posted on 04/18/14
The recent blog, Peace in the Era of Call of Duty  really made me think about war games that dig deeper than simply a kill streak reward. The first game that came to mind was Spec-Ops: The Line and although I haven’t played it, I began to wonder if it did the war genre as...

Um.... Yeah, Final Fantasy X-2 is the offical expansion to FFX that we all grew to love with its funny characters, sweet combact and godly graphics.  FFX-2 tries to continue that tradidtion with picking up a few years after the events of FFX. 

While the storyline is not rocket science, nor is the gameplay, FFX2 still makes for sweet night out on the town, with the introduction of a few new characters, including the hotty goth- girl, Paine. Yeah.

I'm not going into detail about the chracters themselfs, they basically look the same. With some new clothes and hair styles... While the game itself is not nearly as good at FFX it still has some really neat improvments.

The battle speed is sped waaay up, so fights go back quicker than 5 bucks at a titty bar.   Also, the girls can 'morph' or 'strip' and change their clothings into diffrent character classes. The grid system for these improvments is about as difficult as clipping toenails.

One of the best improvments, was with the item system. Each time you found an item, instead of saying "you found a potion", the producers replaced that line with "You SCORED a potion".  Awsome. I have never seen something like that before.

This alone gives the game a very light heared feel to it, instead of the almost depressing storyline of FFX.  FFX-2 has nothing really ground breaking in its gamplay, and the humor in the game gives almost 'ditzy' feel to the storyline.  Funny, lightheared and kinda like a blond, it dosn't take much to figure it out.

Its all about havin a good time, with some chicks and  some random encounters in cross dressing.


Pros: Yuna, Rikku, and Paine. Hot babes.

Cons: Weird storyline, weak gameplay. NOT for hardcore players.

Pros: Clears up many holes im the FFX storyline. Good for fans. FAST battle system

Cons: If your lookin for a good FF game, this is NOT it. FFX-2 is more of a plot filler instead of a sustainer.

Final Note:  FFX-2 is basically a 'what happened' to your favorite character. This game fills on what happened after the events of FFX.  There is nothing really here, kinda like the FF Avent Chrilden movie, alot of hype, but nothing really sustaining. Enjoy the weekend with girls, but remeber to pimp da b*tches, and keep this game stickly as a rental.
