5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome!!!, 22 Mar. 2007
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Final Fantasy XII (PS2) (Video Game)
FFXII is by far the most time consuming FF ever. The world (Ivalice) is huge, with many different types of environment and terrain, even the weather changes, affecting which types of monsters inhabit an area.

With such a huge world in which to run around in it can seem somewhat overwhelming. Large areas can harbour some seriously handy treasures but with the new "probability" system the treasure may only stand a 20% chance of being a useful item and maybe only a 60% chance of appearing at all. This can lead to hours of going away and coming back again, hoping to have re-spawned the treasure into something you need.

Monsters can be a serious pain, especially if they gang up on you. You can avoid a lot of battles by simply fleeing past them, because unlike other FF titles FFXII allows you to see monsters roaming arround so you can avoid tough battles. Sometimes fleeing seems like a great idea but you need to idealy spend hours and hours fighting them and "leveling up" otherwise you will stand no chance of completing the game.

There are 21 optional side quests, some of which you will have to complete to find hidden bonuses and bosses throughout the game.

Magicks, Weapons, Armour, Shields, Tecknics and Augments can be bought for the usuall transfer of GIL at traders, but (and this is a very big but) you will need to unlock the corresponding liscence on the liscence board using points you have gained from defeating monsters. For instance, you have bought a sword but need to unlock the liscence square for 25 LP (licence points) you will need to defeat 25 wolf type creatures, most of which only award 1 LP. when you have done this simply unlock the tile on the liscence board and slash away. Its exactly the same with everything else.

Thats the basics of the game really but i could go on and on, if i did this review would take up several pages. Its a brilliant game and well worth the wait. I hope you enjoy it as much as i have.

If there is one piece of advise i could give, i would suggest you buy the strategy guide when you buy the game. You can complete the game by not having it but you will find it very difficult to find the juicy bonuses throughout the game with out it.

Happy Gaming.
