 Excellent in every way!

The cart loads up, and your greeted with full motion video sequences to rival those seen on the PS1. The immersion is immediate and your hooked. The battle system is fine and the music is wonderful, the story is great, my only gripe is the battle system could be a bit less confusing, otherwise tho a great game! Highly recommended and worth the money!

 Let's cut Square enix some slack here Ok?

Ok, I am ashamed to admit it, I am an adamant FF fanatic and only got this once it was cheap due to lack of cash...I wish I hadn't.

The game, as you may have already surmised, is a direct sequel to the Ps2's FFXII, continuing the tale of Vaan and friends, who are now fully fledged sky pirates with their own ship. After a short introductory chapter in Rabanastre that teaches you the ropes of the game, you are whisked off to explore the floating world of Le'mures, broken up into 5 or 6 continents. So, let's attack this one by one...

Gameplay is an RTS STRATEGY, which you would know if you took the time to read the blurb or other reviews. Essentially your army and the opposition army both move and attack in 'real time' (not turn based!!!). You look upon the battlefield in a pseudo 3-D isometric view (similar to that of FF tactics) and must guide your army to victory against the enemies in a variety of conditions. Mission objectives are varied and range from saving hostages to eliminating all enemies, to navigating trap filled temples, or preventing destruction of an important crystal. Each of the important party members (Vaan, Penelo etc) is a group 'leader', who can themselves be guided to attack, heal, and capture important enemy summoning gates. Each leader can summon a small group of 'espers' that are theirs to command, and the stylus control works beautifully to enable you full and responsive control of all groups. You pan the battlefield with your D-Pad, and everything else is done with the stylus and allows for skillful and competent play...this game is one example of the stylus put to brilliant use.
Units are subdivided into melee, flying, and ranged classes, with a weapon triangle similar to fire emblem created (melee good against ranged, ranged against flying etc). On top of this, elemental weaknesses allow you to take further advantage (or vice versa, the AI is extremely intelligent!) Party leaders level up with successful victories, and can be outfitted with new equipment and skills as they gain experience.

The game is a definate long laster (true to FF's name), and contains about 90 missions, many of them optional sidequests to flesh out the story and your character's experience. The game weighs in at about 20-25 hours for an initial completion, partly owing to the difficulty of the game. This game is HARD...Enemy units relentlessly summon espers, and defend their summoning gates with their lives, sometimes venturing forth small armies to take yours and push you into a little corner that will become your grave. That said, there is no need for level grinding, and a good strategist will be comfortable with the level of difficulty.

Finally, and of some importance, is the presentation, where Square enix have outdone themselves. The graphics in game are gorgeous rendered environments in the same sort of watercolour style as FF12 (and in my opinion even more impressive!) The music and sounds are lovingly recreated on the DS speakers, and those who hear the Dalmascan estersand theme booming out of the DS for the first time will be gobsmacked. It may lack "ring of fates" fully 3D presentation, but it makes up for that with exquisite battlefield design and incredible cutscenes that trump any of the Ps1's FF's.

So, the question you ask is, what if I didn't play FF12? I answer truthfully, that it had a pretty bad storyline if there was one, so I advise you to quickly read up on it and if you are a strategy fan, grab a copy of this game (it has a deep story, a definite improvement over FF12!)

Overall, Square Enix have managed to create a sequel to FF12 that is challenging, beautiful, and squeezes in even more charm that it's predecessor.

Pure DS Gold, this one

 A fantastic little package worthy of the FFXII title

I have noticed that there are a fair few negative comments for this title. I beg to differ.

I think it is important that before considering purchasing this game, you should not expect a full blown RPG, but instead a real time strategy game set in the world of Final Fantasy XII. The gameplay may seem simple at first, and quite difficult, but I actually found it incredibly enjoyable. Once you get into the swing of things, earn yourself some Espers, and build up your party, things get a lot more interesting, and with a plethora of sidequests and a brilliant main story, it's certainly fun seeing what happened after the events of XII. Not only this, but the scripting is incredibly well done, and very much in style of the original characters who you met in Ivalice "one year previously". I would recomend this to a fan of XII, and also for those looking for a fun little strategy game with a superb soundtrack and a variety of things to do. Definitely worth the money, and as a bonus it should keep you going for many hours as a whole!

 A solid Title for the DS

Where to start....well...first off this game is not like any other of the FF seires and adds really solid gameplay that is surprisingly fun.

The game can start off a little wierd as you keep getting a little confused with whats what, but trust me after 2-3 hours you cant put it down, its so fun.

This game at this price is amazing and it would be a sin not to buy it! its great to pick up and play and have some fun with a great storyline and some solid gameplay!

5 STARS

 So Ambivalent i love Final Fantasy

| | See all kerasi's reviews (3)

the storyline is great and having played it right through i loved it.....on the other hand it just grinds, you end up doing the same thing over and over there isn't much variety or strategy but having played every final fantasy I wasn't going to give up on this one if you've played Final Fantasy XII then you have to buy this to find out what happens if not stay away as it quickly gets boring when you realise the maps may look different but they are all the same there just is not enough depth to the whole mechanism which Final Fantasy fans have come to expect. There are no towns, limited side quests, no awesome items, rubbish quests, no real meat to really get you hooked till you've done every little thing and anyway you'll have it 100% completed in a weekend with no replay value. Again having played everything Final Fantasy going this is very much the weakest link.
