[YouTube] Final Fantasy XIII-2: New Adventures Trailer - Page 2

post #11 of 29
The mechanics seem to have improved but, the story, characters and dialogue leave a lot to be desired; it kind of reminds me of the cluster f**k that was Transformers 3.

Wont argue over the stat and party systems. As for auto cast.. well, I think it should be removed since I think it's one of the main reasons people found it 'boring'.

Me personally, I liked playing manually and actually using the spells to find out enemy weaknesses. I forget what they were called since it's been over a year since I played, but I didn't find it boring at all.

As for your last comment, I wont argue that either but I still enjoyed it. I didn't even notice it at all really since I was enjoying it.

Atleast from the YT vid of XIII-2 it looked like they've addressed a lot of the concerns

Oh and I reaaaaaally hope they add an option to switch to the original jap voices with subtitles. The voice acting was pretty bad at times. That and I hate dubs when watching anime/jap games.

Maybe you just don't like the genre anymore. I think that's why most people hate the series now. Games have changed since FF12 ( In terms of pacing, mechanics, and expectations ) so I'm not surprised.

I personally loved FF13 and I think it gets better with every new game.
Huge difference between them. Most of the game was set in a tunnel and the only place you can go was straight. There was no open world (don't tell me those plains were open world).

Lets not even talk about equipment, stats, skills, battles. No, I don't have to use auto-attack but I still only control one person. Treasure? What treasure. It's all the same thing. Either it's worth 100gil or 1,000gil... it's all the same thing.

I don't know if it's the dumbing down of games or what. I remember FF4 actually being a challenge. Fights were a challenge. You could just hold down A and attack the whole battle, but you'll lose and lose quick.

You'll have to import the Asian version for that. Sony and Square have partnered to bring the game to Asian territories with Japanese voicework and English subtitles. It comes out the same day as the North American version.

The term gets overused here and thrown around a lot, but FF13 is Dumbed Down... I used to call it FF:Beginners to JRPG edition

No party micro, No skill/character skill diversity, no "class system"/equipment to test various builds (That pretty much kills 90% of FF's replayability), no real strategy at all... *sigh*

Shipping is expensive though

But if it means I get the original voices then so be it!

I too stopped playing FFXIII mid way. Graphics were terrific but game play was soooooooooooooooo linear that I, a die-hard fan of FF, got bored of my mind !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

graphically these games always make me droll but I care more about gameplay and story alot more than the looks. I'll pass !

It is pathetic when you have more stats in Call of Duty than an "RPG" like FF13.

Yeah sorry they should have just let this one go... it's trying too hard to be something I just can't figure out what... I wanna say a Japanese soap opera or something.
However, it does look better than FFXIII in terms of substance but I really don't click with these characters.
It pains me much to see a franchise I love wither away release after release. They should just go back to text 2D RPG's seriously, I ache for a good old school RPG. I'm playing Tales of Destiny II for PSone right now something new would be phenomenal.
