Ah. Started chapter 2 and ended up playing some awful minigame which is a version of on-rails shooter.
I tolerated the couple of minigamwa in chapter one thinking it is only for the beginning of the game but evidently not.
Think I'm done. Shame. The combat system is pretty good. Wish there was a tighter story. And no minigames.
I am in my thirties and as such there are very few games I'd be ashamed of playing in front of my wife.
Final Fantasy X-2 is one of these games.
The job system they implemented is fun but the plot is simply demented. Embarrassingly stupid.
FFX-2 is good shit for the most part, but it's just such a left turn after FFX that you really need to be in the right mindset for it. Back in the day I was ticked off that my favorite game was followed up with some girl power crap, but once I played the remaster over a decade later I really enjoyed the game. It's girl power crap, but it's funny, sexy, light-hearted girl power crap with great combat, non-linear progression, good music, all set in the same world as FFX with some slight changes/additions. It's mainly the plot that is underwhelming, but there are some cool moments.
The original FFX gets its hooks into you with a strong, serious narrative, while FFX-2 is more like an after-party to fuck around in.
