The battle system for Final Fantasy XIII-2 is based off of the one featured in XIII with a few improvements added in. The Active Time Battle (ATB) system is largely the same with players waiting for the attack gauge to fill so that they can select a series of moves corresponding to the amount of attack slots they have, or the player can pick the auto option which will automatically fill the slots with available attacks. The Paradigm Shift system also remains with the same role options.
You still only control the party leader during the battle, however, whereas before if the party leader died it was game over, XIII-2 allows you to switch to the other party member to keep the battle going. You can also switch the leader in the middle of the battle. There are only two main characters you control in XIII-2 and so in order to make up a three member team for battles, Serah is able to control monsters. After fighting some battles, you receive a crystal that allows you to tame that monster and use it to fight in battle. The monsters you tame have the same role options as normal (com, rav, med, syn, sab and sen) and you can use materials to level them up. The Feral Link feature also allows you to use special moves when the feral link bar fills up. Read the rest of this entry
