Like many role-playing games, Tales of Xillia 2 is divided between exploration and combat. Combat is fast-paced, so you'll need to stay on your toes and be ready to switch gears in an instant.
Mobility is important - dodging attacks is all up to you, and you'll have to keep moving if you don't want to get knocked to the ground. Enemies with different strengths will attempt to team-up on you if you aren't careful. Luckily Ludgar can switch weapon types on the fly, so keep manoeuvring and tailor your weapons and attacks to different foes.
The innovative Link System is the key to victory, and the deepest and most rewarding part of Tales of Xillia 2's fluid combat system. Link with other characters and they'll watch your back, lift you up when you're downed, heal you when you're hurting and unleash powerful chained attacks made up of combinations of your most powerful moves.
Tales of Xillia 2 is available now from PlayStation Store.
