Final Fantasy Tactics review

Reviewed January 30, 2008

Gary Hartley says: "To win this fight, the game encourages you to run around the edges of the screen spamming Ramza's stat-up skills to boost him to super-human proportions while an enraged, mutated Weigraf chases you around like the victim of a poor Benny Hill sketch. After a few laps, Ramza will be so artificially bloated that Weigarf's heartbreaking final sacrifice will amount to naught."

alonia_everclear says: "Final Fantasy Tactics. This game and I have a very long history. It was bought for me as a birthday present and the first day I got it, I dug in. Within the first day at about the fourth level I was stuck. That's right the inevitable ''stuck''. I was there for a very long time, probably about a year or so, I was ready to give up.

johnny_cairo says: "It is hard to remember any games that rival Final Fantasy Tactics in longevity, depth, and dare I say beauty. Obviously this is nothing more than a piece of software, but it is a pure fusion of RPG and strategy, combining the best aspects of both and enhanced by (although not in service of) one of the most elaborate and intrigue-filled stories ever concieved in any medium. The unique magical kingdom of Ivalice combines a medieval aesthetic with a bestiary bursting with all sorts of twiste..."

ratking says: "Final Fantasy Tactics was a highly regarded game, and I knew that some day down the line I would HAVE to purchase it. I finally got around to play it, and at first I was a little confused, but once I understood all of the games mechanics, and the story began to unravel I was entrenched in one of the most magnificent videogame experience in my lifetime.

sgreenwell says: "Forget about all the other standard console role playing games, like Final Fantasy 7 or Chrono Cross. Or about the wargames such as Ogre Battle and Tactics Ogre. Final Fantasy Tactics backhands them in the face, insults their mothers, and then kicks them square in the stomach while they're down. "
