    Its good if you buy the game guide and follow it. Otherwise you miss out of over half the game.

    What is the deal with X-2? Is it a single player game or is it based on playing it online? Ive been told different things from different places.

    It's just a single player game. however, it would be pretty interesting if it were online. FFXI is online and didn't go over well. or so i heard. One would always have to keep paying to play online. it's pretty stupid if you ask me. it should have been like X-box live where you give a yearly fee of $50.

    I've heard good things and bad things about X-2. When i finish FFX i will buy it, mainly for the fact it will be the second FF game i will own. I've heard it's rather 'girly' but i have male friends who enjoy it to. Interesting how there's different ending depending on how well you do in the game.

    I realise this thread has been dead for a while, but it doens't mean a reply can't be added, eh?

    Hey Cloud306 you have no right to rip FFX-2 like that. I think that it is a very good game. Even though yes it does have a few stupid parts that aren't that great but is still a very. I haven't beat it yet but I am getting there.

    The 'Job' system is the only real cool thing about it and features some interesting outfit designs but the plot and new characters of FFX-2 are really annoying! Plus Nobou Uematsu (the composer of music for the other Final Fantasies) did not do any of the audio for it, so you are left with a musical score that will make your ears bleed and go gangrene! >_<!

    lol. that's pretty good DM. however the job system in ffX-2 i believe is a little flawed. I believe it's flawed because if one has just completed becoming a white mage and begins fighting as a swords man, masters that, and then goes back to being a white mage. that shouldn't be able to happen due to the fact that in the real world that usually doesn't happen. that's how all the other ff games are done(especially FF8's GF's) it's close to impossible to switch perfectly tfrom one role to another. in my opinion

    And sadly, that was ripped from previous Final Fantasy titles, where it was done a lot better. FF III and FF V both utilized the Job system, and were not far behind in terms of customability. Also, FF Tactics KILLS X-2 in terms of the Job class. As for the rest of the game....... the plot was pretty weak, and the story telling was pretty stretched. It's a good distraction, but FF X-2 doesn't hold a candle to the rest of the series (excluding that godawful Mystic Quest for the Super NES).

    With playing a Final Fantasy title, I always found it to be something I anticipate greatly, with extremely high expectations for an involving storyline above all else. Up until FFX-2, they had always managed to achieve that, and never let me down.
    Compared to the rest of the series, the storyline is appalling. Basically the game is split into five chapters, and you'll see a snippet of the plot toward the end of each chapter. It's nothing they haven't done before - Hell, I can think of two places there the exact same twist is pulled. I didn't find myself wanting to know what happens next, I just wanted the whole thing over with.
    And whilst I like the occasional side-quest, what I do not enjoy is a game made almost entirely out of sidequests! Most of them aren't at all fun, and entirely frustrating, and so obscure and pointless that you really do need the guide just to know what the hell you're doing. Getting 100% without a guide is for the incredibly patient out there.
    The graphics were somewhat touched up in the battles - I noticed now they actually bothered to render actual shadows. But overall I found the graphics worse than the original, including the re-used ones. So many times I saw the floor I was walking along glitch where I could see behind it, despite that never happening in the original game.
    The music as a whole wasn't all that memorable. I won't say it's bad, and it did have it's highlights - real Emotion, 1000 Words and that piano piece that plays during the intro is all quite nice.
    Overall though, I'm very bitter about the whole thing. ¬_¬

    **SPOILER**You meet Tightass if you get 100% (along with another condition), yes, though no real explaination as to how he comes back is given. Personally of any of the endings, I find the one of Yuna learning to live her life without him to be the most suitable one.

    FFx-2 wasn't that bad, but it could have been better. It was really stupid when they took the sphere grid out, that was a cool way to level up your characters. The old 1-100 levels gets boring after awhile and is pretty easy.
