Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Great game, but not a good as FFT:A This is an awesome game, unless you've played Final fantasy Tactics: Advance, but only because that game was perfect while this is just a weak sequel

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING GAME Ok, the 1st fft game, well, was ok and was pretty fun, but this one, AMAZING!! Gameplay: The gameplay is just great. It's a great roleplay/ strategy game. It involves alot of planning ahead and thinking. There are alot of jobs to choose from, unlike the 1st fft game. Even after the story, there is still hours and hours of gameplay ahead for you. The storyline is very interesting and touching, and im sure that you will like it too. There aren't alot of places where you get "stuck" for hours like some games, so its more relaxing then the other ff games. Graphics: The graphics are very nice, too. I enjoy the in-def detail in the game while playing . But, in the one attack (Scions Wrath) the details are not all that impressive, but that's pretty much the only downside to this game graphic-wise. Sound: The sound is very interesting and entertaining in this game. All of the noises go very well with the movements and story lines Animation: I absolutely love all the animation added to this game. The first fft game didn't involve a whole lot of animation (well what do you expect from a gba game :P) and it kinda disappointed me. The animation for the magick and abilitys is very amazing and awe-inspiring. I'm sure you will enjoy what this game will bring animation-wise.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is great for those who love to class Don't think your buying a remake of the GBA version cause your not. After we accept that fact A2 tactics is a great game. The imense amount of "clansmen" (you can have 24) , combined with seven different races (each of which can master numerous jobs or classes), an immense number of sidequests, and you've got a game you can replay mutiple times. The story also doesn't bore you but keeps you interested and the different songs can be catchy. Overall it's a great game for those familiar with the genre and even those who have never played an rpg before.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good but not as good as the original this game is a fun game to play, it has lot of job classes to master. you can use the touch screen of the d-pad to control the character so the controls aren't bad. story isn't that bad either. the only down side is this game seems a bit easy. its still fun to play though. i think the original tactics is still the best but this game is worth it though. this game everybody can pick up and play it. it doesn't take to long to get used to the controls and what does what in the game. go get it you'll like it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Strategy, intense battles, a perfect combination! From the original to the latest, the games just keep getting better! Exciting strategy, combined with Intense battles and hundreds of missions. No doubt that gamers who have enjoyed other tactics games would enjoy this, and even those who are new to the world of tactics. Logic lovers and big time fighters alike, this game is for everybody, it's certainly the "Whip for the cream."

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow I actually borrowed this game from a friend. I hated the original FFtactics for the PSX... absolutely despised it. Even now I despise it, I wouldn't even be able to bring myself to look upon it. My friend however forced me into playing this game and I am very pleased with it. The controls are easy and the utilization of both screens is close to perfect, there is nothing confusing about this game. And it presents a challenge, especially with "laws" and such. I've been playing for thirty hours and I'm only done with sixty quests while it seems like the game isn't even halfway through. The number of jobs is amazing and I really enjoy the ability to dispatch your characters. Finding enough materials to get another knife with a thief ability is a little frustrating though... I want to be a ninja... right now.... but NO, I have to get a fourth thief ability... Dang thieves. Oh well, I guess it's alright. But anyways, cool game, go play it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not the Best but is worth the price. The game at first felt like a dream come true for me when I saw an ad for it. The first one is a blast to play and had a great story line and unforgettable characters. The game begins like the original tactics advance did (luckily, a snowball fight is not your tutorial for the basic gist of battles). The main character is a mischievous boy who must help clean the school on the last day of school. He finds an old book on a table and looks inside of it. The first page of the book asks for the kid`s name, while all the other pages are blank. The kid writes his name in the book and is "warped" away and disappears. The setting changes into a Forrest like area with (and if I can remember correctly) three people are there along with a few monsters. You listen to their conversation and in the middle of it, the boy that disappeared from the library appears. The three people let him join their clan and tech him how to fight. After all of that, you do a few story mode missions and then you get to experience one of the greatest features of the game. That feature is freedom. Instead of going from story mission to story mission, you can do side quests that don`t have any thing to do with the story. Another freedom is that you can hire and fire people from your clan whenever you get the opportunity. You can fully customize pretty much any characters in your clan. Changing what type of unit they are, the abilities, their stats, and their weapons. Another great feature is the bazaar feature. You collect different materials during battles, and via shop, you can trade these items for weapons armor and so on. The story is one of the games flaws. It can be pretty boring at times and one of the only reasons for continuing through the story is giving your characters new abilities. Every so often you will run into what I like to call "impossible" missions that either take 15 tries or a few hours of leveling up and customizing of characters to finally win. I am currently on one of those missions so I cannot write a full review. The graphics are okay, and you will find yourself using the buttons more then the touch screen. The music is not the best and repetitive. Over all, the game is a great strategy RPG once you get over its flaws, but if you cannot, this game will only last you about five months or less.
