For 1000 years, the world of Spira was held in the grip of terror as the great monster Sin punished its Citizens for using the forbidden machina (machines) in the great machina wars. To combat Sin, powerful summoners would make a pilgrimage to Zanarkand, the ruins of what was once the greatest city in Spira. Able to call and control the devastating manifestations of the Fayth, holy souls imprisoned in statues by ancient Yevon rites, aeon's, into battle. These summoners would sacrifice their lives and the life of a chosen guardian of the summoner to defeat Sin for a temporary period of time called "The Calm". Unfortunately, The Calm would end and Sin would eventually return, forcing a new summoner and his or her guardian to forfeit their lives to bring peace to Spira once again. This cycle of life and death continued in Spira for untold generations, until one summoner stood against the teachings of Yevon and sought a new mean by which to defeat Sin -- permanently. That summoner's name ... Written by Hariharan

Did You Know?


According to developers, the reason Lulu wasn't included in the main party is because - as a surrogate older sister to Yuna, the latter would have relied on her too much and she wouldn't have been able to find herself throughout the story. This is acknowledged in the game with Lulu's line "I'm not there any more. So now you can spread your wings." See more »

Couldn't have been a better second half
15 April 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When I finished Final Fantasy X I was emotionally and critically blown away by how unbelievably brilliant and beautiful it turned out to be; It was my favorite game that I had ever played, and still is. When I heard of Final Fantasy X-2, I could not help but to scratch and tear until I got my claws on it and began playing immediately. While this is no Final Fantasy X, it is a perfect second half with just as much spunk, fun and great action sequences as the first one had.

In this game, we follow and play as Yuna, the loyal and lovable, now high summoner, from Besaid that we all know and cherish from the first game, Rikku, the energetic, insanely cute Al Bhed that we had the pleasure of meeting in the first as well and Paine, a newcomer with the attitude of Lulu, though with different perspectives on life. There are of course a lot of memorable faces from the first in here, but you fight with only these three, which might be why some don't consider this as great as most follow ups.

On to the game itself, you are back to the fighting style that the rest of the Final Fantasy series carries, and instead of the sphere grid and an own, signature fighting title for each character, you use dresspheres, which even though it's a little bit more challenging than the sphere grid, it's certainly fun and with all the different dresspheres you get to use so many tactics and skills in your battle on all three characters. While the game's main story plot is based on the undivided love of Yuna and Tidus, the game also mostly focuses on what sphere hunting group you are now a part of, the Gullwings, and their ventures and crusades trying to track down spheres across Spira and beat rivals, like LeBlanc, in the process.

With the game set in chapters, it is non-stop fun and excitement from the very beginning in each one, with excellent graphics and video sequences that you could never forget; 1000 Words is my favorite original song from a video game, ever. There's tons of side games and side challenges that give the game edge just like the first, and the game does not fail to make you feel sympathy and remorse for a lot of the characters, as it did in the first. This game had big footsteps to follow in, and it filled them just like it was supposed to.

It's incredibly crafty, and never fails to provide you with the joviality and thrill that you loved from the first and was hoping this one would have just as much of. If you enjoyed Final Fantasy X, I strongly recommend you play this if you haven't, for even though it is not a perfect game itself, it is a perfect sequel with emotion, brilliance and adventure brimming at every turn you take! I loved it.
