This game is the first game I ever put 100hrs into. I got all the extra characters and did the extra story after the main ending. I got all guild super powered up and would always fight my friends at school (of course I always won XD). Nintendo tried to put it on the DS but it was total trash. I didn't even finish that one. It wasn't the same. If they re-booted this for 3ds and made wifi battles, i would buy a 3ds. That is how much I loved this game. This is one of the best turned based strategies ever (both as a game by itself and as a series) and is one of the best games on gba (running with stuff like metroid fusion and pokemon). I went out and bought a SP for a nostalgia trip and this is the first game I popped in. This game is great.
Rated 6 out of 10 by Dabomb1945 Good Graphics!!!!!!!! Bad Storyline and Series
Unlike the previous final fantasy series i've played this game sucks. First of all the gameplay is long and repetitive. Most missions is dispatch which means you have to move around the map to accomplish a mission. The judge system is unique in a way that makes u think in the battlefield. One of my favorite moves is change the law to fight and cast berserk on the enemy do that they go to jail. Other than that the storyline sucks since its based on a childs imagination. i'd give this game a 3 star out of 5 since the multiplayer is ok, classes are ok. If the summoner can cast bahumut this could have a better rating.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Hehaho One of my favorite games ever
Best strategy RPG I have ever played... Final fantasy tactics advanced has the best class system I have ever seen that... (the date is 7/11/2012) I'm considering buying a gameboy advanced DS (I have a DSi) just so I Can get this game again.
Rated 8 out of 10 by Ethanthegamer Many/some of the classics rocks!
This game is as fine as Courage from Courage the Cowardly Dog made by Cartoon Network(CN) getting a movie including the part with Courage's parents building a rocket back to earth!
Rated 9 out of 10 by jetball67 It is an amazing game for gamers of all ages.
It is an absolutly stunning game with action graphics and best of all a good story. The fact that its for the GBA and not the DS amazes me.

Ok so here is my review of Final Fantasy Tactics Advance. Let me start off by saying that I did not play the original Final Fantasy Tactics on the playstation and it wasn't until after I beat this one that I got a hold of a copy of the original. So long time fans of the original final fantasy tactics will probably disagree with me. Anyways about this game. It starts off a bit slow with a long opening that you have to read through pages and pages of text. The story is somewhat interesting but starting a new game more than once or twice and it gets old. After the intro and a quick tutorial battle cleverly thrown in as a snowball fight you're off to Ivalice. The game is played as the main character Marche who after him and some friends find a magic book are transported to the land of Ivalice. You're separated from you friends and very confused at first and are quickly found by a mogul by the name of monteblanc you then start you're adventure with monteblancs clan and begin doing quest with all sorts of different objectives though usually it's generally the same type of way to finish the mission. Kill everything, break something, kill a specific target. Thats about it. The story gets good and you actually really begin to feel for many of the main characters. It gets complex and the adventure will last you a long time. I think it took me 25 hours to beat the main mission of the game the first time. Which for a gba game is really long. The difficulty is just right in my opinion. There is a class system that lets you design your party just about however you want to. its great fun. my only complaint is that it doesn't tell you how to unlock certain jobs until you unlock them. which you do by learning certain skills from other jobs. all in all great long game for the gba. great story, and solid difficulty thats good for just fun but also challenging. if you like final fantasy games or just like strategy rpgs this game is a definate buy.
