Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift is the Nintendo DS sequel to the Game Boy Advance's Final Fantasy Tactics Advance. Grimoire is a strategy role-playing game that has inherited many of the franchise's characteristics, including the classic...

I was really looking forward to another entry in the Final Fantasy Tactics series, and was hoping Final Fantasy Tactics Advanced 2: Grimoire of the Rift would be similar to the original game. But it isn?t. And I'm disappointed.

I?m sorry, but I have a hard time recommending this game to anyone except first timers. Everyone else would be disappointed with how the series has progressed. I especially find it hard to recommend this game when another Tactics game - Final Fantasy...

Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift

 

Final Fantasy Tactics Advance for the GBA caused quite a stir in the strategy RPG world. Many fans of the Playstation classic Final Fantasy Tactics didn't like its kiddy nature and light-hearted storytelling. They also didn't like some of the design...

It's hard to understand why Square Enix didn't put any effort into the story, which would have upped the greatness of this game significantly had it been good. Even after some disappointments, FFTA2 remains worth it for all the reasons that FFTA was:...

I've been planning to get this game for years now, and I'm glad to hear it'll be worth my money. Post a Comment

A great addition to the Final Fantasy Tactics family. Gaming on the go never felt more fun than having an army of sprites fighting on your side.

Terribly cute turn-based tactical battle is best on the DS.

Fantastic graphics; great music; more jobs; more races; improved judges

Bazaar can impede progress; obeying laws can be annoyingly out of your control

Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift

 

Final Fantasy Tactics was the best game on the Playstation when it came out in 1998. To this date the game is still a classic. Later on we got to see Final Fantasy Tactics Advance and a directors cut of the original game (Final Fantasy Tactics) on the...

I am pretty damn sure I missed some things about this game, but it doesn?t matter. A2 is the best experience on the Nintendo DS right now. The $39.99 price tag may make some gamers question a purchase. Guess what, this game should cost more with...

Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift

 

Ivalice has to be one of the most compelling locations for a video game series ever. Sure, you may love Mana, Gaia, or even the vast universe of Kingdom Hearts, but it seems that of all the worlds created by Square-Enix, Ivalice has become the most...

Where's Atreyu? Wait, what book did I fall into?

The added stylus controls don't add much to the gameplay, and I found myself relying on the less annoying direction pad than I did on navigating the map with a stick. Also, you still can't rotate the battlefield, and things tend to get aggravating when...

Great Game

 

Great game, buy, play it.

If you are fan of Final Fantasy then you will love this game ; It has 200 mission (main story, sub story, and special story) ; This game will keep you busy for days to come. I have already clock in nearly 100hrs of game play

Lot of stupid law that you will come across in the game

Consumer review by:

good game

 

if you like ffta youll deff enjoy this, play it on hard mode, normal mode is a joke.

great battle system, privileges are cool, music is good, owning territory is much easier

the dispatch system isnt as abusable anymore, really dumb laws, cant dispell laws, enemies are immune to laws, moogle gunners arent as overpowered
