Summary: This is a very cool game. A lot of people don't like it because it deviates from the traditional Final Fantasy formula, but I say traditions are meant to be broken. This game uses real-time strategy instead, and does it very well. Now for my suggestion. This game makes full use of the Nintendo DS touch screen. It would be easy to make a tablet port of the game. Just make it so it fits on one screen and you're all set to go.
Summary: This is a great game if you can get past all the touch controls on the tiny screen. Managing units is more cumbersome than it should be. If you liked FFXII and can stand rts type games I would give it a shot. Got my copy brand new and sealed from Amazon for $12.
