Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift (DS)

 

Grimoire of the Rift returns you to Ivalice for a gratifying but tired tactical strategy romp.

Quite the title, but the Tactics' series has always been like that.

Replay value is rather low, as it takes a great while (60+ hours) to get through this game, and that isn't counting the multitude of side missions and other stuff you can do. Because there is so much to do, it will be awhile before one may want to play...

Plethora of jobs to explore, Battles offer plenty of variety, Never feels punishing

Not much of a graphical upgrade, Normal mode can be too easy, Lifeless story and characters

Get a crash course in turn-based strategy courtesy of Square-Enix.

Beautiful and polished in every respect ; Achieves reasonable accessibility without sacrificing complexity ; Many, many hours of gameplay to be tapped

Strategy element de-emphasised by weak tactical tradeoffs and ample opportunities to “level grind” your characters ; Constrained gameplay variety may limit lasting appeal for some

Overall, Final Fantasy Tactics A2 is a quite uncommon (if not flawless) coupling of remarkable depth with relative accessibility, although it will not take players by the hand through all of its intricacies. The open-ended structure and accommodating...

Whooo! Final Fantasy Tactics A2 is here and it's time to party! Combat party that is. Get ready because if there's any handheld title on the shelves this summer that's likely to give you a serious case of DS elbow, this is it.

In spite of the standard-fare visuals, FFA2 is a game no RPG fan should miss. Besides, it's summer time and what better way to celebrate summer fun-and-sun than staying inside for a hundred hours with your DS? Too much UV is bad for you anyway.

Final Fantasy is, let's face it, an odd name for a series of games — it was confusing enough when there was only a new game every couple of years that just stuck a higher number on the end. These days, when it seems like Square Enix release a new Final...

While waiting for the librarian, Luso flips through the pages and discovers that it ends in the middle. Tagging the tome with his name, Luso is transported to the world of Ivalice with no idea how to get home.

Mind-numbing assortment of weapons, armor, jobs and skills. 400 different quests. Minimum dialogue and tutorial with an emphasis on self-education. Clan trails

Can't see how items look on the characters. Playing with the stylus. Can't freely explore the environment

Ever since our first experience with "The Neverending Story" so many years ago, our one goal in life is to jump into a book and ride a gigantic flying dog. There may be no dog, but Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift lets us play out that...
