So I’ve been playing Final Fantasy XIII-2.
As far as games go, this thing is more-or-less a very pretty mess. I’m on the second last chapter, and, while I have more-or-less settled into the (rather unsteady) rhythm of the game, I’m not entirely sure whether I’m enjoying it or whether it’s just my completionist tendencies that are driving me to slog through every damn bit of the storyline.
Anyway, here are some observations about it. Spoilers ahead!
