I must admit, I wasn't too thrilled with ff13 at the beginning. But i stuck with it to see gorgeous CG cutscenes and felt sixty bucks was just too much to quit in the very early part of the game. More and more I played, I liked tr characters, music and the world of ff13. I could not follow the story ever. But I wanted to see the lucky guy who gets to bang lighting. At first, I thought lighting had a thing with the black guy, then she turns to a little boy for some love. Then on the way vanille and fang are total lesbos. And at the end, lighting bangs no one.
So I'm playing thirteen two now and I'm at the end of chapter 4. I could see this is a short ride story wise. It's great to see serah double dipping herself with this new guy Noel. But everything else, compare to thirteen, felt cheap to me. There's no memorable music track, very little of new CG Cutscene, and I'm not too thrilled with 'gotta catch em all' monsters on your party.
