The first Final Fantasy XIII-2 review has arrived in the pages of Official Xbox Magazine US, which is with subscribers today.
And it's early good news for RPG fans: OXM lamps a 9.0 on the Square Enix follow-up, claiming it "fixes pretty much every point of contention" from the original game.
"FFXIII-2 repairs almost every problem with Final Fantasy XIII, delivering an experience that feels like what that original game should have been," it states.
"If your faith in Final Fantasy has been damaged by past disappointment, playing FFXIII-2 will restore your excitement for the franchise's future."
Framerate issues and the occasional "gimmick sequence" are downer points, says OXM, but overall it's an "amazing" sequel.
Good stuff. Earlier today Square Enix confirmed that a demo is coming to Xbox 360 and PS3 as soon as next week.
