    XC2 imo is just the better game. Everything is more refined with the world being a bit more compact yet still large when travelling. So everything more important was brought closer then you had the large world to explore.
    If you hadn't played 1 first, or indeed had much experience with the JRPG genera, would you feel you could still easily get to grips with XC2s systems? Those are what are daunting me on that game, heck most of what I see online is that the first 16 hours are tutorial-esque in nature and that scares the bejesus out of me.

    Just get XCDE it's well worth the R1000. Same goes for both XCDE and XC2. Like I've mentioned in another thread, it looks confusing and daunting at first but you get used to it very quickly. FYI XC2 still has tutorials like 45 hours into the game when new mechanics are introduced. I just finished XCDE the other day and it was amazing. I love both games equally but XC has a much better story IMO, not that XC2 is lacking in story department.

    XCDE is a bit easier to get into thanks to quality of life improvements. One of my biggest complaints with XC2 is that the quest marker system is confusing as hell, you can see how far your goal is from you but not how to get there and sometimes it can be frustrating. XCDE tracks this on you minimap and tells you exactly where to go, even for sidequests.
