Final Fantasy X-2 – Consumer Guide

Jason Karney's picture

According to ESRB, this game contains: Suggestive Themes, Violence

Parents should know that although this game contains little that would make it inappropriate for children, the content is still aimed at a teen audience. The character outfits tend to be provocative, and the central themes of love and loss are perhaps lost on younger children, but the overall game is clean.

Fans of Final Fantasy shouldn't miss this excellent re-working of the core concepts of the series, which still features Cid and cactuars, while bringing back the Active Time Battle (ATB) gauge for fast battles. The mission structure makes X-2 feel more open than past games in the series, letting the player tackle Spira as he sees fit.

Gamers who missed Final Fantasy X will be missing out on enjoying the whole story, and if possible should play that game first, although it is not required.

Deaf and Hard of Hearing gamers will be happy to know that all dialogue that carries the story forward is subtitled (on by default; configured in options). The singing during computer-generated cutscenes and post-battle one-liners are not subtitled.
