This game takes place long after Final Fantasy XIII-2, right? I think Lumina is Serah's descendant.
I presumed you didn't play the previous game? To avoid spoilers, let's just say that it's impossible.

I am always prepared to give SE another chance, but why start something new in a sequel?
Would they not be better off just starting a new story?

I mean, what's the purpose of direct sequels? To entice satisfied customers to have more of the same. If only 3.1 million people bought 13-2, to make 13-3 seriously different just seems counter-productive. Or is it that they don't think the 13-2 game mechanics wasn't good enough?
Because they probably feels the need to finish the whole story from 13-2. If it's not because of that big 'TO BE CONTINUED' at the end, I don't think they would even try to make 13-3.

..oh wait, they probably would.

Source on that? All I've head is that her name is Lumina or something and she has ambiguous villain-ike role towards Lightning.
I have to admit the ideas for this game actually sound somewhat promising including livening up the setting, being far removed from the mechanics of XIII and XIII-2 and even allowing the player full control of Lightening in combat. It seems like such a no brainer but allowing the player to be immersed in and like they are playing a role in JRPGs is their main appeal to me. No matter how big the story got in FFs I never felt like a bystander until 13 and its many ways from the top down of making it feel more like a simulation than an RPG. Of course this all means nothing till we actually play it and I'm hardly trusting of Square to not drop the ball somehow of late but this is sounding playable in all that the term entails.

I don't like the setting and the characters in 13, and as a result I never even cared about its first sequel.

It's not all bad though. The art and animation are gorgeous, the gameplay mechanics are pretty clever, and the English voice acting is superior to previous games too.

If they could with their writing/direction make me as emotionally engaged as some of the previous games did, a great game could be made. So I wish they would move on from FF13.

I really don't like where this is going. We have only one character, who happens to be my least liked character from FF13, to beat up Snow and Noel, characters who I liked far more.

Yeah, I'll have to be asking myself throughout "can I just throw this fight and not get a Game Over?"

For me, it was the exact opposite. Lightning was one of the few characters I liked. She's been my PS3 desktop image since I beat the game.

But... I didn't get XIII-2 because I thought it looked really dumb and this game is not really giving off any better of a vibe for me even though Lightning is the main character. I WANT to be enthused by it, but I'm just not...
