Condensed from the review:
-much more difficult than the first game
-lots of grinding and backtracking, very linear
-some tricky puzzles
-Beautiful cutscenes and graphics, but poor out of synch dubbing in several instances
-Stories behind important NPC characters are never really explained and somewhat one dimensional. You will not get attached to the characters
-Battles are more complex but more interesting than the previous game
They don't actually give a final score, but overall the reviewer seemed underwhelmed. I'm guessing he'd rate it around 70-75%.
I wasn't terribly excited about this game to begin with, but this info just killed what little interest I had. Will definately be skipping this one.
