Summary: This game is great for FF fans, but it's not really a true fighting game. It has tremendous play balance issues, and the A.I goes from brain dead to near perfect in the blink of an eye. Still, its got some great graphics for a psp game, and is still fun to play casually, but I couldn't devote a lot of time to it after the novelty wore off.
Summary: Okay, let's bring the villain and hero from every Final Fantasy up to X and put them all in a battle - heroes vs. villaiins. The graphics are great for the PSP, but the sound isn't all that. The controls are okay, but the gameplay is so repetitive that you'll forget about everything else and just keep screaming into the screen. I'm only going to say it once - FINAL FANTASY IS NOT A BOARD GAME!!!!!!! The story is all the heroes must gather their crystal to stop Chaos.
Summary: After reading numerous reviews I've come to the conclusion that this game will only appeal to dedicated FF fans. Real fighting game fans will find the combat too simple and the leveling/gear grind repetitive. It's not a bad game, but it's definitely not as great as people are making it to be and it really annoys me that this game got such great reviews when it's so mediocre. I would not have bought it if I knew how underwhelming this game was.
Summary: I had wanted this game since I heard a lot of people gush over how good it was. After playing it, I must say I do not share their enthusiasm. The game is very repetitive. It gets boring after a few hours. Sure the graphics looks nice, but the whole game itself did not match up to all the hype about it. The storyline itself was awfully short, but the game itself is long because of all the grinding.
"Dissidia" meaning "Conflict", "Conflicted" is exactly how I feel

Summary: I think most fellow FF fans can relate when I say that when this game was first announced, the anticipation was almost immediately unbearable. Well, fast-forward a year or so, and what do we get? More or less what most of us were expecting- a full fan-service action title with a negligible plot line. True, there was that moment where I find myself saying "Hey! Awesome! I'm (insert favorite character here) in full 3-d with full-range movement in an ACTION game!
Summary: Overall, Final Fantasy gave me at least 50 hours of gameplay and i didn't even complete it yet. The battles maby fun but the story lacked entertainment and interest in it. The moves/ combos were complicated and the summon system and the campaign made it more complicated. From what looks like a nerd's fantasy come true to battle Sephiroth against Squall or maybe even Cloud against Tidus, it's pretty boring.
Summary: Fun game overall. Very different from the turn based strategy games. Fast action, lots of characters, and great multiplayer. Only negative is the gameplay is very repetitive so after a few weeks you'll be a master at it, but by then you'll also start getting a bit bored. Also the "story" is incredibly terrible.
Summary: If you like any Final Fantasy in the first ten games, you'll enjoy seeing two of the characters appearing here. They all seem as faithful to their respective games as possible while fitting into the context of Dissidia's plot. I don't really care for the gameplay, myself. I never seem to be able to block or dodge. Maybe it's just me, but it seems I always win my fights by taking hits when they're thrown and hitting the other guy harder.
Excerpt: I generally stick to only the properly canonical Final Fantasy games, and have avoided stuff like Tactics that just seemed like cashing-in on the good FF name. Nevertheless, I gave the PSP's Dissida a go when a friend bought it, and while some of my suspicions aren't entirely done away with, it is a fun game and a lot better than I expected.
