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.

Excerpt: Even from just the opening of Final Fantasy Tactics: The War of the Lions , you'll know that you're playing something special.

Final Fantasy Tactics: War of the Lions (PSP) Review

Excerpt: is like being transported into a world of fantastical action and political intrigue. The king of Ivalice has just recently died, and his son is too young to inherit the throne. The titular War of the Lions is a war of succession between two Dukes. Thus, the story is filled with characters on both sides of the struggle, and some third-parties.
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: 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.
