She spent years fighting her destiny. With courage in her heart, she faced the false gods who ruled over people for centuries.
Her unfaltering determination changed the world. The gods were vanquished, their plans to massacre the human race destroyed. As Cocoon fell, a single pillar formed, connecting the ravaged world to the one below-Pulse, the underworld. It was the beginning of a new era.
However, she was nowhere to be found. Everyone was convinced she was gone-with the exception of her sister, Serah Farron.
Three years later:
A single meteorite falls from the sky. As spatial distortions are created, bloodthirsty monsters appear, threatening the peaceful existence of the townspeople.
In the midst of this chaos, Serah is rescued by a young man by the name of Noel. A hunter from the future, he appears in front of her with a message.
"Come with me across the boundaries of time," he says. "Your sister is waiting."
She is Lightning—protector of the Goddess who rules the realm of death and chaos. She is Serah’s sister, her heroine, her savior.

Final Fantasy XIII-2 is an awesome game. I've not put it down since I got it and it's well worth the money. I love that it has the chocobo racing back.
I like Final Fantasy XIII-2 a lot. It's very good.
I quite like this game, specially for its originality. But its not quite good enough to be a Final Fantasy.
This game was less than what I expected. Only 2 playable human characters in contrast to 6 in XIII, altough you can have monsters on your team now. The game-play is solid and fast like in the last one though. You have to do more now but the duration is kind of smaller. Overall it's a an OK game but the main reason I got it was because Final Fantasy 13-3 was announced and I didn't want to miss out on the story. For the price it was perfect.
Final Fantasy XIII-2 is amazing! So much better than the first XIII!
Final Fantasy XIII-2 really surpasses its predecessor. It has a nice story and gives at least 30 hours of fun. At this price, a must buy!
Excellent game, can't wait to come home from work each day and play! It can be a bit of a learning curve to figure out which paradigms to use when and where but once this is overcome a thoroughly enjoyable game!
The game made me curious when I first played the demo and I knew I would not regret buying it. I like the improved system and the additions. Fighting the monsters, capturing them and make them fight alongside you is great. Live triggers are a nice idea, loved it and it makes the story fold in different directions and sometimes creates funny moments. I loved the jump function! I have missed the jump function in the other FF, although it is not that important, but in this game it really did good and made the game worth playing. Another thing I liked were the quick-time actions, really good and not repetitive. There should be more of them next time. Time traveling is funny; at some point it can confuse you and you get lost, but that is the fun part! Find yourself out of the maze or find another way. There is more than one way to finish the game and it really made it fun to play. The one thing I did miss was the bubble that changes the weather (love the noise it made), but they implemented a machine that changes the weather which is almost the same (it has more functions which makes different monsters to appear according to the weather). All in all it is a great game in my opinion, I enjoyed playing it, the story is good. If you feel lost at some point and it makes you angry, try throwing your moogle to calm down.
I love this game. Technically the game is better than the previous chapter, but i don't like very much the story of paradigms. I'm waiting for a new final fantasy.
A great sequel to a fantastic game with even higher quality cut-scenes than it's predecessor. The game is fun and sucks you in as soon as you start playing. If you liked FFXIII, you'll love this sequel!
Final Fantasy XIII-2 is a really nice RPG by Square Enix, a very good game to play, took about 100 hours to be completed!
Was let down a little by the first Final Fantasy XIII, but boy is this one an improvememt. The graphics are just amazing and story is very motivating. Much more open world feeling than the first part! If you have the feel for an excellent RPG that really gives you some value for your hard earned money... then grab this one... Enjoy!
If you loved Final Fantasy XIII, you'll love Final Fantasy XIII-2 even more. It has a lot of new features and new characters. It's a very dynamic game with some Japanese RPG elements.
Final Fantasy XIII-2 is great, and much better than Final Fantasy XIII in my opinion. Hardcore fans are going to love it!
Final Fantasy XIII-2 is the best game I have played in a long time. I waited a long time for Square Enix to bring out a Final Fantasy game that would beat Final Fantasy 10, but I can say with confidence that this is the best one so far. I look foward to anymore Final Fantasy installments and hope that they will be as good as this one or even better. Thanks Square Enix!
I think Final Fantasy XIII-2 is better than Final Fantasy XIII. Only problem is it takes a lot of time to load between different time periods, even after the game is installed.
I have been an avid Final Fantasy fan for many years, and with the newest installment of the game, I can say hello to a lack of sleep again. I knew that once I started, I would not be able to put it down. From the very moment I turned it on, I knew it was going to be a great game. Square Enix have done it again.
I love Final Fantasy XIII-2. The game play, in my opinion, is better than Final Fantasy XIII, and I have enjoyed it all so far. I still have quite a bit to play of it, but it's looking good to me.
Better than the rest of Final Fantasy's. Fantastic graphics and gameplay.
Final Fantasy XIII-2 is the Best.
I love Final Fantasy XIII-2, it's amazing!
I have been a final fantasy fan since ff7 arrived to the UK back on the ps1. This has led to purchasing pretty much every final fantasy game since & also led me down the kingdom hearts series as well. FF13-2 is a superb game & betters FF13 in all categories (although I personally loved FF13). The story arc is brilliant as well as the game mechanics, the graphics are superb & the initial glitches were swiftly fixed with a patch. If you enjoyed any final fantasy then I would highly recommend final fantasy 13-2.
Final Fantasy XIII-2 is quite a good game, still a little like the first episode, but different too; open maps and time travel, alternate worlds, the fight system is still exactly the same, but with only 2 playables characters and a captured mob. I'd rate this game for 3 stars, not finished yet so my opinion could maybe change in future. The story is a bit complicated, but the gameplay is still good, and the fights make me nervous haha Cons: long loadings even if installed on HDD, some lags on Xbox 360 but nothing really bad Certainly one of the better looking game on this system, and one of the better j-rpg on xbox/ps3 Hi from France! :)
XIII was somewhat linear for the first three quarters of the game, and while this didn't really impair the game, what did open up was lacking. There were also no towns of people to interact with, and few sidequests. Also, if whoever you were controlling in battle KO'ed, you lost the fight. All this is fixed in Final Fantasy XIII-2. There's plenty to keep going back to in different locations. Indeed you'll need to, but it does get a little annoying and repetitive at times. Now in battle if your character KOs, you'll take control of your other. Your third and final party member, however, will always be a creature of some form much like a pet, which you can level up through certain items and/or combining other creatures. You can't control these, however, so when your humans are KO'ed, it's a lost battle. Thankfully the retry option is still around, which is a great addition to the later games in the series. All in all the game is rather delightful, with those of us who like to collect things desperately hunting fragments (which can later reward you highly!) or collecting different monsters a la Pokemon. The only thing missing from XIII is the weapon forging - I do miss breaking down stuff for components and harvesting materials for synth.
A great sequal sold at the right price. The best price I've seen.
Final Fantasy XIII-2 is a brilliant game.
Zavvi is a great place to get a game for those who want to play lot of titles like ffxiii-2. This game is excellent, more beautiful...more amazing that the first. Congratulations!
this is my review on Final Fantasy XIII-2: Graphics - 8/10: the graphics and areas in this sequel are still top notch with alot of different scenery which makes every location special Gameplay - 6,5/10: still think that the auto battle system is kind of dull but it gives entry to the people not very good at turn based games. It also has 2 different difficultys (easy and normal). There's also a new pet monster system ala pokemon which is also entertaining but feels more like a gimmick. Story - 7/10: story is still good and whats become expected for a final fantasy game, but some characters are not really that interesting compared to the original cast, who only make guest apperances during the game. Sounds - 10/10: the soundtrack for the game is really good and there's alot of lyrics in most of the songs as well, so it's not just instrumental. For some pieces in the game the music really sets the mood right. Content - 8/10: there's alot of content to put your teeth into, even after you have defeated the game you can get different endings and monsters compared to your team mates. in total i give the game a solid 7
I think the game isn't too bad. The start is strange and you have to play it a little time to understand what's going on, but then you see the complex storyline with the different Timelines etc. After this moment the game gives another feeling. Its a Final Fantasy like FF XIII but with a few new features and some "nerfed" things. So in the end, I liked to play the game and had fun to do that.
Great game if you're a Final Fantasy fan!
Final Fantasy XIII-2 is much better than previous editions, the graphics are great and it actually requires some thinking to complete.
If you really want the improvments that were lacking in FF XIII, you'll be sure to enjoy this opus since you'll have more possibilities and liberties to choose how you are going to progress on your quest to finish this game.
This game is one of the best final fantasy games that I have played recently and I got it much cheaper that anywhere else!
Final Fantasy XIII-2 is an incredibly addictive game, and is what I would call great entertainment at its best! Considering I'm a mother, I'm just as addicted to the game as my son. It has a gripping story, and so many sideline things to do, like working towards all the endings, Chocobo racing, and so much more!
