"Fans of the Tales of series may rejoice, for here returns the usual colorful cast of characters, visuals, and flashy moves. Unfortunately, I can’t say I was nearly as impressed with the combat of Tales of Xillia 2. While it’s very nice to be able to switch characters on a whim, controlling their different moves, there isn’t enough of a variety of moves to warrant a very exciting combat experience. Instead, with an arsenal of combat opportunities, Tales of Xillia 2 seems to shoot blanks, making for a fairly boring battles. The occasional flashy move just isn’t enough to convince me that there is enough substance at play."
