4.0 out of 5 stars One of Finer Fantasies October 31, 2006
Format:Video Game
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
After a long wait, Final Fantasy XII is finally here, after such a long wait. Everything about it shines. From it's deep storyline, to its fantastic and complex gameplay. All worries aside, Final Fantasy XII is a keeper.

The Archadian Empire has taken over the Kingdom of Dalmasca. The King has been assissnated and the princess is presumed dead. The people of Dalmasca are displeased with the Empire, especially a young boy named Vaan who believes it is up to him to take Dalmasca back. Luckily, he's not alone. There's an entire resistence group out there that are willing to help him out. The storyline of Final Fantasy XII is different from all the Final Fantasy games. For one, it relies far more heavily on its political drama and philosophical intrigue. What you get from Final Fantasy XII isn't a huge epic story in scope, but rather a drama that unfolds. It's a different way to tell the story for Final Fantasy, but here it actually works. It's still got some good twists and it is somewhat deep, but don't expect something along the lines of previous installments such as Final Fantasy X or VII. It doesn't have the most memorable ensemble cast either, but you do, for the most part, like the characters.

What many fans are most concerned about when it comes to this new installment is the battle system itself. It strays away from the series roots. It is no longer the ATB style battles we've been used to since Final Fantasy IV. Instead it's Active Dimension battle. All enemies in any given area of a dungeon are present at all times and will charge you upon seeing you.

You can free roam through any area, and so can your enemies. As your characters approach an enemy they pull out their weapons and you can begin to issue attacks.

4.0 out of 5 stars FINAL VAGRANT TACTICS FANTASY 12 January 24, 2007
Format:Video Game
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
So, here's my take on Final Fantasy's latest. Is it the greatest? Read on and find out!

BATTLE SYSTEM: Everything is in real-time, which any veteran FF gamer knows is not the way it used to be. Although it takes a while to get accustomed to this change I found the real-time battles a breath of fresh air--something this series is definitely going to need if we're ever to hope of seeing Final Fantasy 24 or so. It is so nice when the only transition screens you have are those that occur when going to menus, new locations or cut-scenes. Also, the ability to run for your life all the way across the map is really nice, especially in addition with the sounds of thousands of angry hooves and feet stamping after you!

TRANSPORTATION: I don't know about you, but I LOVE flying airships on a world map! Sadly, in Final Fantasy 12 this is not possible. Very ironic, because this is the powerful Playstation 2 and the game itself sports alot of airships. There are Chocobos, but that is the only type of transportation you actually steer on your own. You can take teleport crystals to warp you almost anywhere and later your airship can "fly" you places.

STORYLINE: I would disagree with anyone that says that this game has no storyline. But I would agree that there is so much leveling up/looting to be done between locations that when you reach your final destination you might forget your initial motive for going there. As a whole, FF12's storyline is not as prominent as other storylines, like FF6 and FF7. And of course part of what makes a good storyline are good . . .

CHARACTERS: Since anyone can learn any weapon or magic, the only thing that makes them unique are their looks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Only Reason I Kept My PS2 December 27, 2006
By RPG Fan
Format:Video Game
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Awesome. That one word sums up this game.

I played the demo that came wtih Dragon Quest and didn't really like the battle system but now that I've actually played the game it is amazing. The battle system FFXII uses is the future of RPGs-- it incporporates real-time aspects and a turn-based foundation and it is incredibly smooth. I'm personally a turn-based supporter and I really love this new sysyem, it just works.

The graphics are great for a PS2 game. I'm a recent convert to the XBox 360, despite being a Sony fanboy for X years. I'm looking down on the PS3 because of the lack of decent games thus far (look at IGN and all of the reviews for what's been released, everything has been getting really low scores), not to mention the money issue. The only reason I kept my PS2 was for this game.

Now if only Microsoft could work out a contract with Square Enix and get FF for the 360.... Heaven, my friends. Heaven.

Anywho, the game is great, I highly recommend it. The storyline is awesome and isn't another "person A falls in love with person B" or "save the world by stopping the giant monster." Instead the story is far more localized and therefore feels more personal-- destroy the oppressive empire.

Great game, get it. After you beat it, trade in your PS2 and make the step to next-gen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well, here goes... November 6, 2006
By Cloud
Format:Video Game
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I'll use the old cliche: RPG's have been hand in hand with Final Fantasy. In fact, there's even best-of lists devoted to non-Final Fantasy games. As such, it's hard to believe we haven't had a proper entry in the series since 2001 with Final Fantasy X. Yeah we had the online XI but really, who actually can afford all those fees and everything just to play the game? The twelth game in the series had a frustratingly long gestation period with numerous delays, people walking out as well as doubts about whether the game would actually be good. Must be tough for those who doubted the game. I don't know whether people will regard this as one of the series best but as it stands, this is probably the best RPG available right now.

Story: Taking place in the world of Ivalice, the Archadian Empire has taken over the kingdom of Dalmasca, placing it under their rule. The story centers around a group of people who are caught up in political intrigue and mystery as well as the protection of Princess Ashe, the heir to the throne. As for this story, you might not respond in the way you did to Cloud and Aeris or Locke and Celes but the characters are endearing and the plot is definately the maturest they've done since VIII but what hurts the story is development. You can tell the emphasis was on the story as opposed to the characters so while they all go on this mission, there's really no personal interest in each other as a group. I will say though that I quite like Ashe's character and Balthier is the kind of sly cool guy we all wish we could be.

Graphics: When X came out, the graphics quite frankly stunned me. They still do. Here, they stun but the novelty as worn off since they're not new but boy do they impress.

Save your money, this game is not Final Fantasy, it's probably one of the most boring games I've ever played. Play the older PS1 ones, the remakes on NDS or X. Read more
