Final Fantasy XIII-2 Review

As most of you know, a few months ago I was flown out to L.A. by Square Enix and got to give FINAL FANTASY XIII-2 a preliminary spin. I’ll be honest, prior to attending this event, I was skeptical about XIII-2. Granted, I was excited for the game, the announcement trailer looked quite promising, as did the subsequent trailer featuring gameplay. Even so, after FINAL FANTASY XIII, I was unsure about a sequel. Don’t get me wrong, I liked XIII, a lot actually, I find I’m one of the bigger fans of the game. Criticism notwithstanding, I still felt wary about a XIII-2. So, it was a pleasant surprise when I finally got my hands on it, and almost instantly felt a lot better. It was clear right from the get go that Square Enix took XIII’s criticism to heart and worked hard to improve on things in XIII-2.

Now Square has thankfully given us a full review copy of the PS3 version, here is my final impressions of their attempts to win back some of the pessimists.


Following last week’s 39/40 Famitsu review, Dengeki PlayStation have published their score for Square Enix’s latest offering. On a 100-point scale, Type-0 received 90/90/95/90 from the magazine’s reviewers.

Besides the review, a regular feature was run which included details on the game’s disc-swapping. As you might recall, Type-0 is apparently so large and epic that it requires two UMDs. Big deal, right? You just play the first until you get to the second. It’s not quite so straightforward. Dengeki states that the first UMD contains the prologue and first chapter as well as the final dungeon and chapter. And… nothing else. The bulk of the game seems to be on the second UMD, which you will be swapping to very early on. The second UMD also contains the game’s multiplayer component.

The New Game + mode for Type-0 is more traditional than its disc progression. You finish the game and then start again with all your stats carried over. It was revealed earlier that additional playthroughs will change the game’s story. Dengeki slightly elaborates that the focus will be shifted onto different characters. Considering the game’s rather large cast, it seems appropriate.

The first review for Final Fantasy Type-0 has been released, and unsurprisingly, Famitsu are the first out of the gate with it. The four reviewers gave the game 10, 9, 10 and 10 respectively, giving the game a total score of 39/40. This is the same score FFXIII attained from Famitsu.
