"Average"
3 stars"

This game is not a great game but it is in no way a bad game. It is a large game with a lot of missions etc. The story is fairly interesting, but the gameplay is where it starts lacking. The new gambit system is a plus that takes annoying work out of the fights, but the rest is just not up to the standards that we expect of a final fantasy game.

"Could've been something great..."
1 stars"

The story sounded so promising, but certainly did not turn out that way, I pretty much felt that the game was over right after a main characters love interest is taken out of the picture. That being said I did delight in seeing the Chocobos again, because whats a FF game without some Chocobos- Played it through once, now its currently collecting dust in the back of my closet, will not play again, just wasnt worth it.

"Better than expected!"
5 stars"

It is different from other Final Fantasies, but it is unique, fun and captivating! A great cast of characters, a great and addictive gameplay and a great story! There are allot of secrets that may prove difficult to find and discover but it brings new gameplay mechanics and elements to the series!

"Very different from other FFs."
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

It's gameplay is more comparable to a MMORPG than the older turn-based FFs.

Graphics are excellent for the PS2. They really push the machine to its limit.

The music has an epic, orchestral feel to it.

The story is somewhat different from the older games too. Less sweeping adventure and more political intrigue à la FF Tactics.

Overall, it feels like a departure from the older FFs. Whether this move is good or bad is subjective.

"The most fan dividing FF title ever. Why-"
5 stars"

If you look through the reviews, you'll find that 50% of people hate it, 50% love it. I have to say, I love it.

A lot of people put down the story, but actually it's very good. The problem is that it's not that FF-ish. I haven't played many FF titles, so I don't really know about that, but the story is believable and keeps you going through to the end.

The battle system is simply incredible, much better than the turn based systems in the earliest FF titles. Character development is unlimited with the addition of the licence board. Almost limitless hunts and sidequests to do, should keep you occupied for a while.

If you're still playing PS2 titles, this ones a keeper. Worth every cent

"The PS2s last Final Fantasy did not disapoint"
5 stars"

No more random battles, plenty of free roaming, some of my favourite side quests with a massive load of them to complete, another 100 plus hours game, Not the best story from Square Enix but still highly enjoyable. All new Summons you really had to work to get some of those harder summons but it felt great once you had them, well done Sqaure Enix on yet another great game

Description

The story of Final Fantasy XII takes place in a world called Ivalice, in an age when magic was commonplace and airships plied the skies, crowding out the heavens. A world of many races, the humes, bangaa, viera and, of course, moogles, all call Ivalice home.

War was on the horizon. Seeking to strengthen its base of power, the great Archadian Empire had been invading and subjugating its neighboring kingdoms one by one. The small Kingdom of Dalmasca was one such kingdom.

When the occupying Archadian forces established a new consul in Dalmasca's Royal City of Rabanastre, it caught the attention of Vaan, an urchin living on the streets. To Vaan, the Empire was a hated enemy who had taken the life of his brother-his last surviving family member. Vaan hatched a plan to sneak into the castle housing the new consul and unburden him of one or two of his treasures. But before he would have the chance, Vaan got far more than he bargained for; a resistance movement of former Dalmascan soldiers rising up against the Archadian Empire was launching an assault! Amid the ensuing confusion that engulfed the castle, Vaan saw something he could scarcely believe. There, among the members of the resistance, was the figure of the sole remaining heir to the Dalmascan throne, the Princess Ashe, who'd been given up for missing...

Our story follows Vaan, Ashe, Vaan's friend Penelo, the sky pirate Balthier, his partner Fran and many more on an adventure through Ivalice that traces the mysteries behind the Archadian Empire's invasion. Since 1987, the Final Fantasy series has sold over 60 million units. Final Fantasy XII carries on the proud tradition, bringing new ideas to the series and innovation to the RPG genre.

Final Fantasy XII features:

  • Every aspect of the graphics brings color to the world of Ivalice-blues and oranges reminiscent of the Mediterranean evoke a landscape alive with a mix of European and Arabian imagery.
  • Airships feature prominently in Final Fantasy XII. They come in all shapes and sizes-the main airship in this story is a medium-sized craft that measures over 1,000 feet from bow to stern. Airships are used for everything from the trading of goods to the waging of war.
  • The story isn't all that's new-experience an evolved battle system with numerous features never before seen in the Final Fantasy series:
    • 1. ADB - Active Dimension Battle is a shift from ATB (Active Time Battle), lending more realism to the battle by allowing seamless switching between the field and the battle scene.
    • 2. Load time between the field and the battle scene that is unrelated to actual gameplay has been eliminated, ensuring smoother gaming.
    • Besides time elements, such as the attack timing, the player can fully utilize the field geography in terms of differences in ground level, intricate terrain, places with low visibility and the like.
    • Enemy monsters can also take advantage of the varied tactics that ADB offers, possessing sophisticated AI to ambush parties, back up their comrades and restore HP.
  • Ivalice sounds better, too, with in-game events and movie scenes presented in Dolby Pro Logic II.
