Default Final Fantasy XIII-2 – Another Downfall in Storytelling

Reviews have been filtering in with everyone taking a stand one way or the other – whether XIII-2 is a worthy sequel to XIII. Many articles and blogs cite the ways in which XIII-2 made improvements upon its predecessor, particularly with more freedom, side quests, and mini-games. The negativity of fans regarding a lack of such freedom in XIII led Square Enix to showcase traditional RPG aspects (like mini-games) in XIII-2’s trailers in order to regain the confidence of Final Fantasy fans who felt jipped on the last installment of the series.

Although XIII-2 feels more like an actual Final Fantasy game due to the elimination of complete linearity, the storytelling aspect is still harshly criticized. One review states, “Storytelling, sadly, remains the one place where ‘XIII-2’ stumbles as much as (if not more than) ‘XIII’.”
