Dissidia 012 Final Fantasy

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.
Excerpt: If you have ever heard me on the GiN Lounge or read some of my other Square Enix reviews, then you already know that I love the Final Fantasy series (and Square in general). So I’m sure it will come as no surprise when I tell you that I liked this game.

It's everything, almost literally everything, that Dissidia was while simultaneously introducing necessary tweaks, layering new...
