The world of Final Fantasy returns to Game Boy Advance! When Marche and his friends, Mewt and Ritz, open an ancient magical tome, their small town of St. Ivalice transforms into a kingdom of swords and sorcery known as Ivalice. To return his world to normal, Marche must join a clan and take up the sword, learn magic and fight his way through dozens of tactical battles. Ultimately, he must unravel the riddle of the crystals, the magical stones that are the key to restoring his home.
  • Command a squad of fighters, mages and monsters to create a plan of attack and strike enemies with swords, magic and incredible summoned monster attacks that are the trademark of every Final Fantasy game.
  • Immerse yourself in the fantasy! Dozens of jobs and hundreds of abilities give you the power to control every aspect of the battle.
  • Take on hundreds of missions and one of the many side quests to see what treasures await you.
  • Abide by the new law system or you'll wind up in jail and out of action. But watch out, because not everyone observes the law!
  • Link up with a friend to win battles, trade items or even trade clan members.

 Final Fantasy With A Twist

Top 100 Games Reviewer

A very addictive and a thoroughly enjoyable game, the obvious things are included like jobs and races which have been used in previous Final Fantasy stories are here.

As the battle system, it's actually a grid system where you move your characters around on a grid based system and wipe out foes who stand in your way. When you first play this game you are greeted to an excellent tutorial which explains the battle system very well.

The story of course is griping like the majority of Square's titles and includes the country of Ivalice which has been used by Final Fantasy XII.

As for survivability it's definetly worth the pricetag. Not only is there a main story for you to follow but a ton of sub-quests for you to embark on which grant you extra weapons and characters.

To round it up, this game is great, it has all the traditional Final Fantasy bits in there that all fans of the series love and it can work for people who have never played a Final Fantasy gamne before as it's a relatively new battle system that other games havn't really explored in.

 A classic strategy game, amazing amount of depth

If you have ever played anything like Tactics Ogre, this is a lovely looking isometric strategy RPG which takes place across multiple missions on a world map which you make as you go along. There's loads of micro-mangement and lots of classes for your characters to grow into but it's all explained quite clearly as you go along forming your own guild and fighting under different conditions.

Basically I played it for 45 hrs and got 80 missions in out of 300, and I was still enjoying it. If that's not value for money I don't know what is, one of the best things out on the GBA.

 I don't get crazy for strategy games...but I LOVE this!!!

Ok, I don't really like strategic games, but I tried it out cuz it's FF...and I have been amazed!!!
Apart from the plot (criticized by many but I think it's nice), the game is pretty good in graphic (as good as it can be in a GBA game), and the music is nice too.
The gameplay is easy to master, even if in the beginning it can be fairly complicated to get over all the jobs and the abilities (in fact I needed a guide to get it well).
Anyway, once you got how you can unlock new jobs through the use of weapons and armors, everything becomes even more addicting :D
There are 300 missions (more or less), the good part of them becomes available once you have ended the game once.
There are a bunch of secret characters that will join your clan, as well as a lot of stuff for the equipment, and every race (human, nu mou, moogle, bangaa and viera) has some particular job (you'll find out later in the game, the unlockable jobs are very useful and cool).

What else to say?...If you like FF, and a FF completely different from the "classic" FFVIII and FFX and FFIII, and still a game with the whole magic and fantastic atmosphere of FF...try out this game!

[Of course, go and read some reviews around the web to make your mind clearer, and on YouTube look for some gameplay video].
