Dissidia 012 Final Fantasy
29 June 2011
Excerpt: As bizarre as that title looks, it’s not really symbolic. Dissidia 012 is just the prequel to the original Dissidia, which brought Final Fantasy protagonists together in one big fighting fan service throwdown.

Review: Dissidia 012 [duodecim] Final Fantasy (Sony PSP)
15 June 2011
Summary: Dissidia 012 may not be a proper sequel in the truest of forms, but it still manages to surpass its predecessor in all the ways that matter.

Dissidia 012 Duodecim Final Fantasy does everything a sequel is supposed to, except have a simple and eloquent title.
Excerpt: Fan service: The inclusion in a work of fiction of any material which has no relevance to the storyline, but is designed merely to excite the viewer. Read that sentence again because this will be a recurring theme throughout this review. Dissidia 012[duodecim] Final Fantasy , henceforth referred to as only Duodecim , is the most blatant and shameless fan service effort from Final Fantasy makers, Square-Enix. The raging fanboy-isms over "Which Final Fantasy is the best?
Excerpt: Copains D'avant est un moyen plutôt efficace de retrouver la trace d'anciens camarades de classe, mais Dissidia : Duodecim Final Fantasy va quand même plus loin dans le concept. Considérez simplement que chaque Final Fantasy représente une classe d'un lycée, et Duodecim une sorte de voyage organisé vers un monde inconnu peuplé de gens au sang aussi chaud que celui d'Afida Turner.
