Final Fantasy Tactics: The War of the Lions (PSP) - Review
20 October 2009
Excerpt: Final Fantasy Tactics was one of my favorite PS1 games. Therefore, it was only logical that when I got a PSP, this port of the original game was one of the first games I needed to check. Yet, the PS1 version was released on 1997 (1998 in the West), how does an enhanced port compare to an actual game more than 10 years later?
Excerpt: Final Fantasy is bordering on a cult at this point. The series of loosely connected games, movies, and merchandise resonates with gamers worldwide and continues to spin off loads of new material. Square Enix has come to be known as a developer with extraordinary ideas and standards for quality largely built on the reputation of the Final Fantasy series.
Conclusion: Final Fantasy Tactics: The War of the Lions is a true PSP system seller if ever there was one. The sheer amount of content coupled with the in depth battle system and epic story provide a game that will keep you busy on-the-go for months. If only the game had spent a few extra months in development, it could have achieved the perfection the original never managed. The improvements warrant a purchase for fans and newcomers alike, but it could have been so much more.
Excerpt: 10 years ago Final Fantasy VII came out for the Playstation and was instantly hailed as one of gaming’s greatest achievements to date. It wasn't the only game in the series to come out within the next few months leading into 1998 though. Final Fantasy Tactics came out in January, a few months after Final Fantasy VII, and completely flew under the radar. Final Fantasy VII wasn't all at fault for this though.
Excerpt: The Final Fantasy series has been around since – what seems like – the beginning of time. Now a “new” chronicle in this storied series is upon us. Final Fantasy Tactics: War of the Lions has arrived… again. Though it is nothing new, a game of this caliber doesn’t need to change much. Strategy gaming has been around for a very long time. It found its home in the PC gaming world and slowly seeped its way onto consoles.
