  Final Fantasy 12 review

| | See all SatanicJesus's reviews (3)

When I first played this game. I put 40 hours into it (didn't even get halfway), then I bought the strategy guide for the hunts and sidequests, and I restarted. This is an excellent game. Lovely graphics, awesome battlesystem, the story is really good, especially considering the first Final Fantasy barely had any story.

  THE BAST GAME EVER !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I dont care what anyon else says. This game is the best. Its harder more fun and not as boring since you can move around and fight. you have a huge variety of weapons and ways to develope you characters. They dont reveal the whole game there are hidden espers etc. which you find on your own, Bosses are alot harder. As long as you have the right gambits set up you cant go wrong.

Amazing story.. cant wait for new one in march 09.

Final fantasy is my favourite game i still play final fantasy 7.

ff7,10,and this one are the best ones.

  awesome game, story could've been better

The gameplay is amazing
The side quests are extremely addictive
The new battle system is a huge improvement
Still i had to give it 4 stars because the story could have been better, and the characters more interesting. The story in its self doesn't dictate which characters are the important ones. This is good since you choose who you prefer to use, but it's a huge drawback in the story since in the end you just don't care about anyone.
I guess i'd be more lenient with it if it wasn't called final fantasy. But as it is, it's got big shoes to fill storywise and it could have done much better.

This is a very good final fantasy. I like the new battle system however i prefer the traditional battle system over this one. Not the best final fantasy i've ever played but worth buying. I like the story line and the new weapons are very cool. I would have given it 5 stars but i feel that this is not the best final fantasy. Definately worth playing.

  The only reason you should still be playing your PS2.

This was the last game I played on my PS2 before switching completely to my Xbox 360. Why I chose Xbox over PS3 is another story altogether, so lets leave that aside.
This game is traditionally turn based like all other Final Fantasies out there. In fact, they took a page from the MMORPG and made it so that you could avoid encounters by keeping from "Aggroing" nearby monsters, in other words just running around them/ away from them.

That said though, this sometimes isnt possible and what sometimes ends up happening is you having to run from a massive group of monsters you tried to avoid chasing after you.

Great story tho, great characters. I really reccomend it. The gameplay takes a little while to get used to, but it's not too hard to get your head around. The difficulty changes as you advance in the game but by the end you are so used to the controls that you don't really notice.

It's a great pity this title didnt come out on PS3 else this game would have a much greater following.

  Awesome - let alone RPG. One of the all time greats EVER!

I cannot write how much of a masterpiece this game is. From the battle system, to the levels (MANY not FEW!!), to the bosses (one boss has 12 million HP and the biggest has 50 million HP), this game is up there with FF10 and FF7. At a tenner? What a bargain! This is a must have!

  Good...but not Good enough

Ok yes this is graphically one of the best game out today for the PS2 and yes it is alot of fun...However its lacks that certain something that all Final Fantasy games have before it.
This to me wasnt a Final Fantasy game but just another RPG and a real disappointment :( but then again its a Tenner now so by all means go ahead and buy it cos its good for a laugh
