Final Fantasy XIII-2 Is a Bad Idea: Reasons Why

It has been suggested recently that Square-Enix are looking to do a follow up to Final Fantasy XIII, with a possible FFXIII-2 title. It is merely ideas from Square-Enix at the moment, but we and probably the majority of FF fans hope they are joking.

It is fair to say that Square-Enix are the kings of RPG games, but FFXIII was a total letdown for die hard FF fans. We’ve all read the criticisms on the game in the past, so we won’t go into it, but they really shouldn’t be thinking of another game.

Director Motomu Toriyama wants to make a spin-off game where Lightning ends up ”happy”, but we really think Square-Enix should scrap the idea completely and start fresh on a Final Fantasy title which is closer to either FF7, FF8 or FF9 – the three games which are considered their finest work yet.

I’d even prefer no game over a new FF XIII game actually, or better yet – spend more time polishing up Final Fantasy Versus XIII – since early signs are looking like it’s nothing like XIII – which is obviously a good thing.

Am I being a bit harsh on the original FFXIII, maybe a bit – but I feel it would be time wasted for Square-Enix if they really gave the green light to this project.

Do you think a spin-off game would be a bad idea?

    i'm sure, bad game or good game, people will, including myself, purchase a XIII-2.
    They know this and they will do it if they reallly wanted to.
    KH2 was pretty linear in terms of environment too, in comparison to the first one, and people LOVE that game.
    Maybe they were just trying to do what people liked, obviously it didn't work, and will try to fix things up in a sequel.
    the FF12 sequel is completely different from FF12, and it was still well recieved.
    I think it has a chance.
