Final Fantasy XII (PlayStation 2)

 

This chapter in one of the world's most popular role-playing series features an inspired look, boldly redesigned strategic combat, and a long, engaging story.

Final Fantasy XII - PS2 review at Thunderbolt Games

 

2001 marked the year of release for the much anticipated tenth incarnation of the Final Fantasy series, for the Playstation 2. Boasting an engaging story, beautiful cinematics, and stellar voice acting, Final Fantasy X set a new high for role-playing...

Final Fantasy XII (PS2)

 

Final Fantasy XII delivers with a refined presentation and an inventive combat system, but the less than spectacular narrative and lackluster characters impede upon the game reaching true greatness.

New and an ingenious battle system; top-notch visual and aural presentation; loads of additionial gameplay via sidequests

Weak storyline and characterization; license board is too open-ended

Few game series have received the combination of critical acclaim and popularity among gamers as Final Fantasy. The franchise currently holds fourth place on the list of top-selling video game series as well as myriad places on top games lists, both...

It all comes down to this: the mechanics are what makes a game a game. Having a great plot and pretty graphics and sound are wonderful, but if that’s all you can offer, video games are not the right medium for your creation. I’d be happy to pay to...

I was about to start writing this review by saying that Final Fantasy XII was destined to be the most controversial game in the series, but now that I think about it, the series has kinda' always had controversy in one area or another. There was the...

Inventive and original gambit system ; Amazing graphics ; Fantastic voice acting ; Some of the best characters ever to grace an RPG ; Amazing story

License system is tedious, frustrating, and flawed in numerous ways ; Some pop-up and slowdown mar an otherwise superb graphical presentation ; Mar-kwiss ; Forgettable soundtrack ; After the introduction, the first few hours are a bit slow and boring

Final Fantasy XII is flawed, and has all sorts of features seemingly designed to polarize fans. However, it is also a must-have RPG, and one of the best games of the year.

Final Fantasy XII could be considered the best game in the series since Final Fantasy VII.

All in all Square-Enix brings us what many fans will tout as the best Final Fantasy in a long time, since FFVII, or maybe even VI. Fan of the series or not, this is one game that anyone who claims to like RPG's wouldn�t be taken seriously without. -...

Saving the best for last

It is hard to believe that it took this long to actually get my hands on a new Final Fantasy. This has got to be the longest development cycle for one of Square-Enix crown jewels games, but it was completely worth the wait. If you love RPG's then this...
