Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (3 ):
Kids say (6 ):

The story line is more focused on quests related to relationships and world-building, as opposed to encountering and conquering endless evil monsters. There is plenty of battle action, but the overall feel to this game is one of challenges and emotional depths rather than simply charging ahead into the fray.

Final Fantasy X-2 is more task-oriented than many role-playing games, including the previous games in this series. Fans of detailed story lines that have an overarching and complex theme will be disappointed with the reliance on mini-diversions, which may keep the player busy but don't necessarily add to the overall impact of the main story or the characters.
