battle system?

11 replies 1 views Edited Dec 1, 2003
is the battle system in this game like lord of the rings where you get to use the buttons to attack the enemy or like diablo where you just click on your enemy and you attack him automatically?

in all of them, you give your character commands, and they do them. but in FFX-2 you can do combos.

how on earth can you do combos besides Trigger Happy? My girls can only do one attack at a time...unless they "attack" really fast, but that hasnt happened yet.

Each FF game has a unique battle system but basically their are Physical Attacks, Magic Attacks, Summons, and special abilities.  Most are simple, wait-your-turn, basic RPG games.  Try one, you'll like it.  I recommend FFVIII, X, or X-2.

Rikku does a combo hit every time for me.  You just have to hit X right after she hits them the first time.  If you time it correctly, she'll do a combo or two.

Yes, technically it's the "latest" game in the series, and yes, I happen to think it is one of the greatest games out there, along with a ton of other people.

Actually you have to play with the timings, if you land blows on the enemi one after the other, you can chain up the combo hits, even magic works.

Yup he's right.  I use Paine as my Black Mage / Fighter and I've had her combo with spells.

,

Like if she is casting Fira, and Rikku hits at about the same time it will combo.

,

The best way to do combo's I've found is to try to use timing the meter that tells when you attack.

,

Like sometimes I think I need to take away more HP from an enemy, so I will wait for both Rikku and Paine's bar to fill up, then I attack quickly and get the combo's. 

,

I think the combo's end up doing more damage with each hit.

,

EDIT: I mean the combo attacks do more damage than they would if they had not been combos. :smileyhappy:
