5.0 out of 5 stars Fun! 9 Oct 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
got this game on monday and i havent been able to put this game down yet (abeit after work etc... and writing this review) this game is fun,

the sound and gameplay does lag a tiny wee bit when casting (mainly) and attacking (rarely) but it is hardly noticable, another annoyance of the game for me is the camera angles...granted it is fun to twirl the camera 360 degrees in the battlefield it does get annoying when your in a tense battle and you dont know where the black mages spell is going to hit you, (maybe its just me).

the fun aspects of the game is firstly the graphics, the "cell" shaded FMVs arent really a typical cell shaded sequence its more like "the snowmane" if any of you seen that, personally i think it works well with the story as a whole (wont ruin promise) and the class system is pretty much perfect, and with the addition of the dark knight the game feel more like you have a aiming point with your characters. the gameplay is simple to complex depending which items you want to take in; for all those old FF tactic players out there, there is still that zodiac system, the thing about it, is that you dont really need to take into account to complete the game or do whatever, (thats the simple part) the hard part is actually learning the compatibilty of all the zodiacs and this will all boil down to what (wo)men you send out into the battlefield.

personally i will reccomend it to any of the following;
1) turn-based rpg fans
2) rpg fans
3) final fantasy fans
4) people who own a psp
5) people who loved advance wars or field commander
6) people who love challenges
7) who generally love games

4.0 out of 5 stars A touch of Matsuno.... 23 Sep 2010
By K.D
Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Firstly people might be wondering who is Matsuno?? well the first thing to mention is that Matsuno is the man behind the conception of the world of Ivalice and director of the game. His focus on mature storytelling and dark, realistic drama are the reasons why the War of the Lions is phenominal.

The reasons I enjoyed the game was primarily because of the story. Its starts off telling a very human drama about the differences between the lower and upper class citizens of Ivalice. Anyway A LOT of things happen between the beginning and the end, not to mention we're left with so many intriguing questions about the world of Ivalice. Druing that time, the story and the characters transform into something mesmerising, suprising and very unpredicatble. I could've never imagined the world I was transported into when I first put this into my PSP.

However the reason I've deducted 1 star is because of the gameplay, while I did enjoy the battles at times, it can get very difficult, and you will have to train for a while to be able to get the right setup for the major story battles. and to be honest the fights are a bit slow, nothing as engaging as the fast paced action of Final Fantasy 13!! But the fights are statisfing, and its great unlocking new classes and accessing some of the more powerful weapons and armour.

To finish I'll say that this is an amazing game and the story Matsuno has developed in this game has so much depth. If it was a book it could probabily amount to size of the Lord of Rings trilogy; and we're left with so much to look foward to in the world of Ivalice. However its only the gameplay which lets it down at times, that aside fans of this game should be looking foward to Matsuno's next project Tactic's Ogre, which is said to be his best!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Ignore the fanboys 8 Aug 2008
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
There are a few reviews on here that cover this game well, see the one below for example. However, and I have found this to be quite an issue when I was first deciding on a new handheld system, there are an awful lot of lies about the PSP by DS fanboys.

What you need to know is that this is a remake of the PSOne classic that never made it to Europe and had many people either importing or using other means to get hold of the game. I personally hold this as the best tactical RPG ever, even above the mighty Disgaea, Shining Force 2 and Front Mission 3. The story is rich and dark and heavily revolves around the theme of class systems, what makes the story so good is that it is a Japanese take on European culture and history which makes for something both unique yet at the same time familiar. The graphics look very crisp on the PSP screen although there are issues with slowdown on some of the more grand attacks, perhaps owing to a very complex game system that is difficult to understand fully even with a strategy guide (although you only need the basics to get the maximum out of the game). It is very difficult in places and very unforgiving, your characters can and will die! If you can't handle this kind of thing then look elsewhere but for those looking for a definitive title I'd strongly recommend you pick up this great homage to a classic game, and don't worry if you played the Tactics Advance and was mortified by its lameness (I rushed out for that title on day of release and was left feeling a tad unhappy), this is an excellent and mature title.

For those who loved the original, there are some changes, mostly in the changes of the names. They have also modified the script which in the most part is an improvement but they seem to have butchered some of the more memorable scenes.

3.0 out of 5 stars Cumbersome and disappointing after all the hype
I'm a big fan of tactical RPGs, but living in the EU with an unmodded Playstation, I didn't see this the first time around. If I had, maybe I'd have liked it more! Read more

It is difficult to describe just how amazing this game is. There is a moving, and somewhat dark story line, coupled with an incredibly strategic battle system. Read more
