    I think most people consider Final Fantasy X-2 as a let down because Square Enix made a big fuss and made it out to be the next big Final Fantasy but I rather enjoyed it; the battle system and the sub-quests were really well strung together. Overall, 7/10.

    Yeah, the monkey thing was just random - I expected a little more out of Zanarkand.

    the reason why i think everyone thought final fantasy x-2 was a rubbish game was because it followed one of the best games of the series.

    It is really hard to follow, isn't it?

    That is probally why they spent so much time developing XII.

    well i think that if a game follows another game then it should be as good as it or better

    I think people expected another X, which, despite all its good points, X-2 just wasn't.

    The battle system was awesome in X-2. The story was ok but sub-par but the really fun battles and the surprisingly cool dressphere system made up for it. It was also pretty short but it did have new game plus so that's fine with me.

    most of the new characters were interesting too.

    Having played through the game once again, I did it more completelty in an attempt to get 100%. In doing so, I discovered several twists and revelations in the game that I was unaware of before when I complained about the game way back in 2006. However, that doesn't change the many things I dislike about the game nor does it change the fact I hate how most of the story is a sidequest. I have no problem having to do a little extra to unravel teh whole plot but when nearly all the major things about characters are totally optional to find out it's annoying.

    However, this is alll I will say. I do not wish to anger the gods (Prak) with my complaints about the game.

    The reason the story was rubbish was because Paine had little, if anything, to do with the plot. In my opinion, she ruined that great Final Fantasy X feel with her atrocious "gothic" demeanor. Otherwise, I considered it a fairly good game.

    Do you mean she ruined X-2? because Paine was not in FFX. Maybe you're thinking of Lulu.

    The topic of this thread is - "Why do people say X-2 was a terrible game?"
    Where does that leave confusion as to which game I am referring to?

    Getting off topic, in Final Fantasy X at least Lulu played a role in the game and wasn't a constant pessimist. Paine had little backstory and that attitude of her's was overbearingly annoying. Also, because Final Fantasy X-2 is a direct sequel, I can assume it's okay for me to say it has a 'Final Fantasy X' feel to it. Correct?

    Yeah. I just didn't entirely understand what you were saying. My bad.

    A lot of guys were expecting hot lesbo action to be the focal point of FFX-2; which is not the case.

    EDIT: I probably meant a lot of "girlfriend-less" guys

    Don't take it personal, I'm not attacking you. Just getting my point across.

    Eventually one of the developers will slip up and release some secret mini-game similar to "Hot Coffee" of GTA. I'm counting down the days.

    Actually, I thought the whole idea of FFX-2 was showing the new feel of calm and when people are on their own without a common threat.

    BTW: I liked Paine. But I played FFX-2 before FFX, so I can't even entirely imagine how you got her served.

    I actually disagree. I enjoyed this game much more then FF10. I don't know what it was, but I think it was the whole female thing that they did. I don't really enjoy playing males so...I guess thats what glued me to FFX-2. haha

    It's a good game but it's way too girly and to get the good ending you have to do random things. You have to press X three times when you hear a whistle, I mean what the fuck?

    Come on Rikku has barely even clothing on besides when changing dresssphere. Yuna almost turned out to be a slut (srry but its true >.<). Paine is just..well Paine >.>.
    is that bad!

    Oh and the minigames like matching up the monkeys and selling the concert tickets were really pointless and annoying.

    not to mention the character development or lack of it for certain supposedly important people you know like rikku and paine. and nooj,gippal and baralai were pretty random in the end. Also "him,you know who" I mean what the hell you know that you couldn't say his name in the sequel cause you got to pick it in the first one but it's still annoying. And another thing I would like to know what shuyin even existed for, and lenne was so much cooler than yuna that I was wishing for LRP by the time I finished the game. Oh and not enough cut scenes for me. I kinda wanted to see leblanc and her gang in one you know.
    And as a side note it would have been cool if lenne got a character cd right
