Excerpt: The RPG Master was very excited to earn enough money to purchase Final Fantasy XII Revenant Wings. Finally a new Final Fantasy role playing game on the Nintendo DS. And then the RPG Master started playing Final Fantasy XII Revenant Wings. This game is part tactics, and part real time strategy. Capture these large squares and have espers (editor: in essence monsters) fight for you. If you have an esper or two die, then summon another one from these small pedestals.
Excerpt: I have a confession to make. I haven’t beaten a single level in Mega Man 9. Granted, I haven’t put in the time that it seems is required for the title, but then again, I haven’t felt the urge. Don’t get me wrong, I love Megaman games and I remember playing and beating Megaman 2 when it was a new release, but something has changed.
Excerpt: Revenant Wings isn't your typical Final Fantasy game. Indeed, it's unlike any Final Fantasy game ever released. And that's because it's an RTS (real-time-strategy game), not your straight up RPG (role-playing game), which Final Fantasy is best known for. So, the big question is, does it work well as an RTS?
Excerpt: The RTS/RPG hybrid has been all the rage on the DS, what with the touch-screen and stylus combo lending themselves so well to the genre. It started with Taito's "LostMagic," but Square Enix picked up on the formula and released "Heroes of Mana" and now "Final Fantasy XII: Revenant Wings." You can always count on Square Enix to milk a good thing, but the question is whether this milking be any good, or will it be a cheap cash-in not worth your time?
Excerpt: Final Fantasy XII: Revenant Wings continues the story from Final Fantasy XII on the Playstation 2 and brings a solid blend of action RPG and real-time strategy to the Nintendo DS. While the game ends up being more action than strategy most of the time, the experience is very enjoyable and proves to be yet another great game from Square-Enix for the DS.
Conclusion: Overall, I don't want to play this game up to be the greatest of all time DS game, as that's likely not the case, but I will go as far as saying that this is the best RTS/RPG game that I've personally played on the DS so far. If you're a fan of Final Fantasy XII, you'll appreciate this story continuation, and the amazing features described above that keep the game interesting and innovative.
