Yes, unfortunately the Final Fantasy XIII plot is sloppily retconned in order to fit with the new Final Fantasy XIII-2 storyline. Luckily, the rest of the story isn't nearly as fan-fictiony. Much in the style of beloved classic Chrono Trigger, you get to travel between multiple different times and alternate universes. Throughout the story and even the side-quests, you get to see how your actions in the past affect the future. Most of the characters you meet are actually genuinely interesting, and you'll feel compelled to see how your time-traveling antics affect each of them.

Scoring Final Fantasy XIII-2 is almost irrelevant. For every person who nods their head whilst reading this review, there will be one wondering just what on earth I’ve been smoking. I absolutely love the game, and found myself totally absorbed in everything it has to offer. The Paradigms system, the monster hunting, even level grinding was enjoyable, encouraging experimentation to put together the best possible team and Paradigms. 2012 has certainly kicked off with a bang.

Despite it’s poor pacing during the second act and its less than satisfying end, Final Fantasy XIII-2 can hold its head up high as a large improvement over its predecessor in the places where it counts. The story is more focused and genuinely touching, there’s more variety in the gameplay and the combat has been iterated on successfully while keeping what made its forbearer’s special. I’d whole heartedly recommend this to anyone who enjoyed Final Fantasy XIII, it’s haters however will find nothing to like here, and anyone who has no affiliation with the series will be lost cluelessly in its mechanics and deep and slightly confusing world and lore.

Ultimately, Final Fantasy XIII-2 feels like a smarter version of the first title, with a new storyline added for a ‘sidekick’ character who was always relegated to the sidelines. And the story, that deals with ideas about memory, how relationships change over time, and the bond between sisters, is a refreshing inclusion in the RPG genre. New players may find all the back story and references from XIII a bit confusing, however with the inclusion of a “beginner’s primer” in the menu, there’s no reason why longtime fans of the series as well as complete newcomers won’t get a brilliant gaming experience out of this title. Two thumbs up!
