Return to Ivalice in the latest installment of the legendary FINAL FANTASY TACTICS series. Summer vacation has begun for all but one unlucky student. Alone in the school library, Luso solemnly toils away the punishment his mischief has brought him. It is there that he finds a dusty, mysterious book. Opening it, he reads aloud the only text it contains: “One is fated to fill these barren pages. Know you his name?” Scrawling his name onto the next blank page, Luso unwittingly begins the first chapter of an adventure all his own.
So far, so good. I like it a lot more than the first FFTA and a lot less than the PS1 original (which seems to be the common thread, going by the other reviews up here.) I'll make a short one:
I love this game! I've always been a fan of the FF: Tactics series, and this one does NOT disappoint I am pleased to say. There are several changes from FF:TA. If you break the Judge's rule, you don't immediately lose or anything - instead, you lose the ability to revive your characters in battle, and you also miss out on extra items that you get if you complete a level without breaking the law. The jobs and stats are changed up some - some jobs are missing and several are added, and are also somewhat different in some cases. The item system is VERY different; instead of unlocking new items as you progress through the story, you use 'loot,' items that you pick up from dead monsters/win from battles and quests, etc. - loot has no purpose except that you can use it at the bazaar to construct new weapons/armor/all other equipment. When you do this, you don't get the equipment, either - you gain the ability to buy it henceforth. I kind of like it, though - it adds a bit of a random element. One other thing - recruiting is much more of a pain in the ass in this in my opinion.
It is quite different than the original Final Fantasy Tactics, which I've been a fan of since it appeared on the original Playstation. I still find it to be quite enjoyable though, and very addictive. The storyline is much simpler, as it seems to be aimed toward a younger demographic. That doesn't mean that the strategy is less complex though. I have always felt that turn-based strategy like this is best suited to handheld consoles, and this game is no exception. it's a great game to pick up and play through a battle, even if you don't have a lot of time. Quick Saves make this even better. There are a lot of abilities to learn and classes to unlock, so it has a lot to offer for those who are completionists. I hope that they will make more games in this series in the future, most likely on the 3ds.
If you played FFTA, this is the sequel.
Final Fantasy Tactics A2’s presentation and gameplay make it an engaging and addictive title that can be enjoyed by any SRPG aficionado.
Juegazo que me llegó con el plástico protector todavía.
Great just as advertised
I used to play this when I was young, but lost the game. Now I'm glad I'm able to play it again.
Like the first one the gameplay is great. Unfortunately, it's also similar in that there is not much of a storyline. If you enjoyed FFTA then you'll probably enjoy this one.
Love this classic tactics game especially final fantasy!!
Consigliato .Avendo giocato tutti i tattici di FF posso dire che questo per me è sicuramente il capitolo più fresco per quanto riguarda le meccaniche e il flow grafico ma che mantiene l'originalità del primo T.ADVANCE . Un MUST HAVE per gli appassionati .
