Final Fantasy XII: Revenant Wings

 

Even with its flaws though, Final Fantasy XII: Revenant Wings is still a good game. The soundtrack, which is once again composed by Hitoshi Sakimoto and Kenichiro Fukui is amazing and easily one of the best on the DS. The story, although not original,...

Final Fantasy XII: Revenant Wings Review

 

The 'Ivalice Alliance' debuts on Nintendo DS; but does it soar like an airship or fall like an Aegyl with burnt wings...

Bite-sized gameplay ; RTS/RPG mix works well ; Expanded Esper development

Storyline isn't quite as compelling as usual ; Gambit system is overly-simplified ; Can feel a little dumb-down at times

Whilst not the usual Final Fantasy experience we're used to, Revenant Wings nonetheless provides an enticing adventure in the skies above Ivalice, even if it does get a little plodding at times. Engaging in small doses or longer sessions,...

A short-lived, (yet rather pleasant) venture into Ivalice.

Final Fantasy XII: Revenant Wings

 

The RTS/RPG hybrid has been all the rage on the DS, what with the touch-screen and stylus combo lending themselves so well to the genre. It started with Taito's "LostMagic," but Square Enix picked up on the formula and released "Heroes of Mana" and now...

While Revenant Wings may be little more than a handheld equivalent to Final Fantasy X-2, it does what it was meant to do quite well. It is also multiple steps up from Square Enix's last RTS/RPG, Heroes of Mana. Don't expect the game to be as large or...

Final Fantasy XII: Revenant Wings review for the DS

 

Final? No. Fantasy? Yep. Revenant? Perhaps…

Beautiful cinematics; Cool monsters; Good storyline

Blunt-hammer strategy; Not much to buy with gil

While the difficulty of Revenant Wings could be dialed up a notch or two for experienced gamers, it's a fun, great-looking game that will keep you occupied for fifteen to twenty hours. In fact, there's a picture of Revenant Wings next to "quality...

Final Fantasy XII Revenant Wings Review

 

The fantasy continues in this DS spin-off.

The gambit system returns in Revenant Wings, although in a heavily modified format. Characters can each have one gambit assigned to them at a time, which causes them to automatically execute a particular action every time they can in battle (there is...

Final Fantasy XII: Revenant Wings

 

Vaan and company are off to save the skies from some dastardly pirates, though not in the way you might expect.

Nice gameplay departure; intuitive controls; excellent use of the touch screen; familiar and likeable characters

Convoluted story; sketchy AI; not much strategy needed for an RTS

Final Fantasy XII: Revenant Wings

 

For Final Fantasy fans there's nothing better than sitting down at your favorite game platform of choice and going deep on an adventure in the Final Fantasy universe. For those who own a Nintendo DS there is great news -- Square Enix is producing Final...

So if you're a big time Final Fantasy fan and would like to continue the adventure of the last episode, Final Fantasy XII: Revenant Wings looks to be an excellent addition for your FF library.

Further details are unknown, including whether or not the game will possess any WiFi features. Look for more info in coming weeks. Final Fantasy XII: Revenant Wings should be heading to North America in early 2007

Final Fantasy XII: Revenant Wings

 

Final Fantasy XII was a huge game. Many say that it redefined the Final Fantasy series and prepared it for the next-gen. Almost a year after Final Fantasy XII, we get the sequel (or spinoff depending on how you look at it) that takes place one year...
