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
This is an updated version of the game Final Fantasy Tactics, which never came out here in the UK. This was the first game I ever saw where you had to move on a type of grid (I was only a kid, and have found since then that this idea is not new), so it came out years before Disgaea was ever even a twinkle in a game designers eye.
Like I have said, this never came out in the UK, but this will give the chance for people here to find out why this game has become a collectable. FFT is a story of two friends, Delita and Ramza, and how a war and their different classes affects their lives (Ramza is from nobility and Delita is from a farming family), how different people try to use them for their own agendas and how they try to mature and try to make their own decisions about their lives and how that affects the people and world they live in.
In the game you can choose from a large range of jobs, each job having different abilities. To gain each job you have to have the pre-requisites, so you have to have a basic job up to a certain level before another job class is included and you get to learn lots of different abilities within each job. It is really satisfying when you complete a job (learn all the abilities in a job), trying to complete your jobs makes your characters stronger, which gives you an advantage in the battlefield, which gives you more job points, which helps you complete a job, and so on, and so on. The jobs you start off with are really basic, like a chemist, squire, etc. and once you level these up more become available, you get a whole range like ninjas, samurais, summoners, dancers (!) and bards.Read more ›
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!!
