Game Informer gives Final Fantasy XIII-2 an 8/10

January 10, 2012

Final Fantasy XIII-2 is almost out which means one thing. Western review scores. Our first one comes from Game Informer's Joe Juba, who has given the game an 8.0/10.

The review seems to slam the story describing it as “laughable and borderline insulting” and states that the game “screws it up at every turn”. Here's an excerpt from the interview.

"…time-travel and alternate realities are easy excuses to have a bunch of crazy stuff happen (or not happen) whenever it’s conveinent. Why is that giant flan blocking may path? Why is that person acting strangely? Here’s a hint: the answer to almost every mystery in the game is ‘a time paradox did it."

Juba also doesn't really seem to like the music all that much saying that it has “too many poppy songs and generic lyrics about changing the past and not giving up hope.”

On a positive note though, the reviewer thinks the game is still a great game saying things like graphics, fun mechanics, battle system, freedom and other adjustments were praised going as far to say that it's his favorite RPG from a mechanical standpoint. He says that “If you can detach yourself from the absurd story, the wealth of content and fun mechanics are extremely satisfying”.

You may remember back in December when we reported that Square Enix will be teaming up with Byking for a new arcade title. Well, it has been revealed and it's titled "Gunslinger Stratus." It's 4v4 shooting game that will enable the player to make use of dual guns.

The game will be produced by Square Enix's own Nobuki Kadoi(Lord of Vermillion series) and directed by Byking CEO and founder Shinichiro Obata, a former Capcom employee who worked on titles like "Street Fighter" and "Vampire Savior."

Just to name a few of the character designers, Mari Shimazaki(Bayonetta and Okami) as well as Arco Wada and Shigeto Koyama. World view and concept of the game stem from Gen Urobuchi, scenario writer from "Nitro Plus."

Square Enix will be holding a live conference later today at Nico Nico Live. Producer Nobuki Kadoi and Director Shinichiro Obata will be present as well as Square Enix CEO Yoichi Wada. The conference will begin at about 15:00. Please refer to this NICO NICO LIVE link at the said time if you wish to view the conference.
