Yesterday, while cleaning up my media center, I found my copy of Ratchet & Clank: Into The Nexus, which I bought sometime before Christmas last year. I had been pretty excited about this game pre-release, what with it being the first "traditional", albeit shorter than usual,...

What do these ratings mean?

The final fantasy series is truly a landmark series; it has the best graphics, storyline and best characters ever made. This is the true sequel to each game, usually all the Final Fantasy games have been totally different in characterisation and in storylines, but the essence of the Role Playing Genre would never be there if Squaresoft didní¢â‚¬™t create the brilliant series.

Final Fantasy X-2 leaves off 2 years after the events of Final Fantasy X, the evil Sin has been defeated, and Yuna has left the Besaid Islands to "find herself", really she is pining over Tidus who has mysteriously disappeared and Yuna is desperate to find him. Even though leaving the islands of Besaid, she is now with her friend Rikku, and a new character, Paine, who make up the "Gullwings". There job is to go to all the cities around Spira and collect spheres, thatí¢â‚¬™s right there Sphere hunters! These spheres behold clips of the past and Yuna uses these to help her find Tidus. Aww Yuna's in love, anyway the story continues on from here, all the usual things happen, a war breaks out, and being an ex summoner Yuna must help out, so the game shows alot of depth in the storyline and adds lots of side missions, but the main quest in Yuna's travel is too find the ever famous Tidus, but unfortunately you must play through 40 hours of game play before you see the famous character, but im leaving it there HAHA! PLAY IT!

The cut scences are gorgeous as usual and it is worth sitting through, its like watching the amazing Final Fantasy, but instead of watching a whole 90 minutes of it, you get 5 seconds and then back to the PS2 graphics which of course is great but soon enough you'll be wanting more gorgeous cut scenes, mm there good enough to eat!

Sound is good, but its irritating when you keep getting into battle, thereí¢â‚¬™s an annoying tune that plays when your ambushed and your like.. AHH! NOT AGAIN! Voice acting is great! John DiMaggio is in it! Wooo! Go Bender! The lip sync is a little off and if your a big straight macho man like me :P, you'll roll your eyes at some of the sayings, "poopie" is just one example.

This truly is a great game, its major let downs are really the annoying and sometimes boring side-quests which are usually pointless, the amazingly addictive blitzball that we loved in FFX, has now turned into a spectator sport which you never win and the scores end up being like 10 - 0, while your sitting there doing nothing. And random battle quests, yeah ití¢â‚¬™s great when you want to level up, but when you want it they never come, and when you doní¢â‚¬™t want them, they doní¢â‚¬™t stop coming, it is frustrating to the maximum.

This is a solid sequel and should be played by fans of the series, only a few let downs here and there but it passes and you have a truly terrific game!
