Final Fantasy Tactics A2
The game was alright, I have to give it that . The character customization was nice because you could give you person armor and a weapon (or two). But the problem was that you could only hold 5 things instead of like a shield, gloves, boots, weapon, helm, body, and legs. Plus it was totally unorganized. Some of the bosses were really hard, but some were like a walk in the park. The storyline is rediculisly stupid. (Oh I must fill out the pages of my book so I can return home, but I might not even want to). Sound, the music is very repeatitive and boring. Controls I thought were dumb because it's the type of game were you hop around on spaces, right. So you think you could just zip thru controls with a stylus. Right? Wrong. If you want to use the stylus you have to double tap on everything. (At the end of the day stabbing the screen to death.) So that's a down side. Overall- I think it's an 8. Also meant for people that don't mind each little color square to be 10X10 pixels across.
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.
I have been a big fan of the final fantasy tactics advance so i pretty much knew that i was going to get this game. At first i wasnt very impressed but when i got a little farther i was amazed.It is by far one of my favorite games.it is way better than the first one in many ways. First is that the combos are out.At first i thought that it was crazy that they didnt have it but now i think it is much more challenging without it and makes the game a lot more enjoyable.The second is that ther are a bunch more jobs to choose form and new weapons that give even more abilities.The last is creating things in the bazaar.At first it wasnt too great but after you get more materials i think it is awesome because if you have the right materials you can make a great weapon even when you are a pretty low level.I gave this a 10 out of 10 because i loved this game and i would without a doubt reccomend this to other people that lover tactical games.
Final Fantasy Tactics A2 is a great game. This will keep you occupied for weeks, enough for the whole summer. If you liked the first one for the GBA, then you'll love this one, too. The sound is nice, but the graphics aren't much different. In my opinion, if they got Super Mario 64 DS to have the same graphics it had on the N64, then every DS game should have much better graphics. Anyway, the gameplay is deep, and character customization is really intricate because each guy can have different jobs or weapons or accessories. I wish it had online via wi-fi, that would be pretty sweet. In addition, the process of trading loot to the bazaar to get new weapons for sale adds another difficulty level to the game. Overall, this game is addictive and really fun!!! If you love RPGs or strategy games, or are new to this genre, this game is a great way to go!
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.
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."
This game is really amazing and I like the job differences in the 56 different jobs you can be and I also liked all the races you can choose from. And you can keep playing it. I already have 20 hours of playtime on it and I haven't even come halfway through the game yet. The game's never-ending story line and its gameplay is really fun. The other final fantasy tactics are also really great and I think that this one is another good one to add to the storyline. The 56 jobs can vary from the job in the past-time soldier, to the new job agent or raptor. And the game is actually pretty challenging with some of the missions you get. Once you have done them though, you get ready for what is prepared and you get used to the challenges in the game. And some of the parts look REALLY hard, but once you get the idea of it it gets easier. I would 100% recommend this game.
Wow, I'm impressed at this game. I've bought it not long ago and been playing for so long. What I love about the final fantasy tactical games is that they never end. I've got 46 hours on the first one I play on gameboy advance and never got bored. Now they come out with 2 and it's even better! I love how they put more jobs and the new bazaar where you combine the loot you get from finishing quests in weapons and armor. This game is basically you start out in school and you have to clean a library b4 you leave. In the library you open a book and you decide to write in it then you teleport to monsters. There you join a clan. There are clan trials where you can up your clan levels. I also love how they put in the auction where you try to buy land. All in all, great game deserves to be bought. Trust me, if you like strategy you'll like this.
Could've Been Better
Put Plainly, The Story outright was just terrible. Im sitting around playing this game with a level 86, Beaten Illua several times, beaten the five kings mission and I sit there thinking whats next? Even with 250 of the games quests completed and only 75 hours to do it, more should have been added. What really angered me was the only wifi they decided to put in was a really poor raffle for an item system. Id rather take on people on wifi with my band of 6 and my combinations against theirs. The Main story was very predictable, get sucked into a book, find a way back, hooray, a three year old could figure it out. The Side quests were the good part of the story such as the Duelhorn side quests. Over time I actually grew to like Duelhorn, until i completed all the quests and wasnt rewarded with anything of use to me at all. Customization was well done, but could've been done better, graphics were much better than the GBA version of the game, The Interface was simple enough so the most moronic of people could use it, which is good because it had a decent combat system that posed a challenge on some quests and not so much on others. I would recommend this game to others, just not as highly as I would have prior to the games release.
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.
