Final Fantasy X-2
is the sequel to Final Fantasy X
and its the first sequel to
any of the Final Fantasy games.
The game takes place two years after
the events of Final Fantasy X. Yuna
becomes a sphere hunter to find
spheres to unlock the mysteries
of a character that looks like Tidus
that was shown inside a sphere.
Yuna fights alongside with Rikku
and Paine who are also sphere hunters.
There are also many new characters
to this game that adds a whole lot
of ordeal to Yuna's adventure.
The gameplay is all turn based,
just like the other games, but the
difference between this and Final
Fantasy X is that its an ATB
type of battle system and not like
the CTB, so you have less time to
plan out your next move seeing as
everything happens all the time.
The sphere grid is gone and it goes
back to the basic functions of leveling
up your characters, which is probably
the easier method of handling the
characters. The characters use dress
spheres to use different types of
elements of attacks which are similar
to the classes in Final Fantasy
There are different outcomes because
of the mission systems that take
place allowing Yuna to find different
clues to what she is looking for.
The story in this game, also answers
some questions that were asked in
Final Fantasy X by looking at the
spheres you get by completing the
missions and unravel the past of
The look of the characters, cities,
and monsters are the same, but are
crisp and clear as ever. Cinema
sequences have also improved, most
notably the lip synchronization.
The lips move perfectly with the
English language compared to occasional
off-beat dialogue FFX. You will
encounter many of the same monsters,
but this is logical due to the fact
it is a sequel. New monsters do
appear every once in a while, new
bosses are also frequent and interesting
as ever. Sound is great as ever.
The music is more upbeat and happy
than in FFX. This fits the atmosphere
of FFX-2 though, due to the calm.
Pop songs also peek their heads
into the soundtrack. These songs
are excellent and fit with the storyline
