This or XIII-2?

FF 13-2 is a sort of 50/50 game. I personally love the whole series. They both have their faults but overall I'd say play it and make up your own mind on it rather than listening to other people complain about it.

I honestly think you should play all three of them in order, so you get the full experience and can decide which one you like best because you played them all instead of listening to other people tell you what to do.

XIII will always have a special place in my heart.

XIII-2 has some minigames, chocobo racing, that Brain Blast minigame, but most of my enjoyment came from DLCs.

Just play XIII and pretend like -2 and LR never happened.

This is an interesting situation. Personally I found FFXIII was a solid stand alone game. FFXIII-2 felt more like a spin-off then a sequel to me. LR is more of sequel to FFXIII-2 to boot...

Even if you don't care about the story, playing FFXIII-2 and then LR seems like the best bet. They'll be more fun to play over FFXIII, that much I'll concede.

(I still love FFXIII the most as a whole though, lol)

Dood, Tales of Xillia blows FF13 and FF13-2 out the water, not comparison. You will enjoy Tales much more.

Have you played Tales games before?


I played about two hours of Legendia a long, long time ago near its original release. That's about as much exposure I've had to the series. I keep hearing great things about Xillia 2, though, so it's made me curious.

Also, seems like there are some mixed opinions on which XIII game I should (or shouldn't) get. lol

P.S. - I use correct grammar online. Insane, no?

Yea,, mixed ir pretty accurate with the replies... but most would recommend the first FF13, and not the latter FF13-2 or LR.

Why did you stop playing Legendia, it is one of the better entries in the great Tales series. Has one of my favorite fighting classes too.
Anyway, you wont be disappointed with Xillia. If you want any sort of enjoymeny out of FF13-2... you will have to pay extra for the DLC....which isnt really worth it in the end.

Given that the entire series has a pretty crap story - the gameplay in XIII-2 is vastly superior to XIII.

Doesn't this game supply you with a recap of what's happening? If your interested in XIII-2 then sure but I don't think he need to play it to understand this game. I could be wrong though.
