Have you at least gotten an Episode Complete in every section or gotten the good/perfect ending? Sorry, but I'm really tired of complaints from those that haven't really seen what the game has to offer. So I'm not going to respond to any more comments that say that the game was "bad" or a "waste of time" unless the poster saying it has done either or both of those.

It's like I said for my review of the game over at Amazon:

"One of the best parts is the story and missions system: there are actually five different endings you can see based on how much of the game you're willing to explore. More than that, though, it goes much further than the multiple endings. The game actively rewards you for taking the time to explore stories and missions in-depth. Do so and you'll be rewarded with satisfying plot-events, funny (or appropriately serious) dialogue and some big surprises. Don't do so and you'll find that many plotlines end up incomplete or have resolutions that are rather unsatisfying. That too is part of the fun - watching things go differently and catching things that you may have missed before."

i have seen all the endings (friends files also)l. but it seems like you know what u are doing. by any chance do you no how to play the coin game? it seems like u get a dressphere from shinra if you beet him, and i havent been able to figure out what i am doing.

LOL - friends files. Well, that's sort of cheating... Did you at least find out the name of Wakka / Lulu's baby? That's one plot event where you really need to get an Episode Complete in order to be satisfied.

Sphere Break? Sure. You can get the Lady Luck dressphere by beating Shinra at Sphere Break. In order to do it, the best thing to do is use combos. One of the coins that you get for the tournament has a trait called "Coin Count Echo." So here's what you do. Use three coins (or two if you wanna try) to make your first Core Break and then do it again using the same number of coins you used before. Keep doing it using the same number of coins and you'll keep getting echoes and meet the quota in no time. The only way you can really get screwed is if the core number comes up as one because then you have to start the echoes over again. Save before going into the battle, you might need to reset a couple times. Good luck!

Oh, and beat Shinra in Chapter 3, he gets even harder (but still totally beatable) if you have to play him in Chapter 5.

Tsk, waste of time? Sleeping is a waste of time, eating is, watching TV is, yes even posting this message is, but NOT FFX-2.

While playing this game I felt content for doing so, I enjoye being with Yuna and watching her discover Spira anew, watching her trying to cope with her loss and figuring out what it is that she wants.
It was so interesting seeing a world reorganize itself...

Yes, I guess that made FFX-2 so very interesting, that's the aspect no other FF game has touched so far, the big question "And what happens after the evil guy is defeated?". How people react, how they start fighting again over nothing, as well as what becomes of the characters...
I loved the characters in FFX... and just being with them some more, and actively helping them a little, is already enough, isn't it...? Certainly no waste of time for me...

This post may possibly seema bit weird, I apologize but I'm still a bit... feeling odd...

guess i never really thought about that, makes me kinda change my mind?

I think you really touch on a strong point there. I had always kinda thought it a neat idea myself if after the game was over, you could just sort of browse around the towns and have fun. This game takes it a step further. And not only that, but New Game Plus is absolutely brilliant in my opinion. Before, if you missed something, you had to start all over again from scratch, i.e. "You can't take it with you." But not so this time.
