This time, the Active Time Battle system is brought back for the battle system but with a little variation. The characters are given a certain amount of time to successfully execute a command. The waiting time now depends on the last attack you make. If your last attack was a basic move then your upcoming waiting time will decrease. If you uses several commands on one turn then your next waiting time will be quite awhile.
In addition, a brand new Attack Chain System is included in FFX-2. This system allows one of your character to chain attack an attack. Yuna’s Trigger command begins the Chain Attack. To conclude about the battle system, most players who haven’t played the game still wonders what is the main difference in battle between FFX & FFX-2. The main difference is, there will no longer be aeons or an overdrive/overkill system in FFX-2.
