Final Fantasy Tactics: The War of The Lions
17 February 2011
Summary: "Final Fantasy Tactics: The War of The Lions" is a remake of the original "Final Fantasy Tactics" for the Playstation. That being said, this game really does little justice to the original. To start, the battles ar down right annoying. Turns seem to go by painfulling slow, in turn making the battles go by dreadfully slow. Also, one must adjust the camera angle constantly to see around large objects that WILL get in your way.
This job was a complete success... This job was a complete failure...

Summary: Final Fantasy Tactics is one of my favorite games of all time. I have logged thousands of hours on this game obsessively level building every character, mastering every skill, and finding every weapon through multiple play throughs over the years. Imagine my surprise then when a complete remake of the game came out, for the PSP. As a great fan of the PSP system, and its freeing portable qualities, I was thrilled to say the least when I heard the news.
Summary: The game is fun, has some nice bonuses like FMV, voice acting, new jobs, new items, a better translated script. It does however, suffer from the same fundamental flaw as its predecessor, length of time. To build up job points and classes you basically have to spend hours upon hours beating your own people up and healing them and having someone sit there with the squire class and use "Focus" every turn to earn job points.
Summary: This is essentially the same game I remember from 1997, with cleaned-up dialogue -- something I'd always wished for -- and the addition of some very nice animated cut scenes, and of course, new secret characters, extra party slots, etc. The story is finally comprehensible and easy on the eyes.
Summary: Final Fantasy Tactics has long been my favorite videogame EVER. Nothing, I feel, has ever matched the original PS1 version of the game. Unfortunately, that still statement still stands. I've always wanted a portable version of Final Fantasy Tactics, and when I heard it was coming to PSP I went and bought a PSP JUST FOR THIS GAME. I figured that with the fixed translation, new movies, and new content it would be pretty much the only game I would need for awhile.
Summary: When first hearing and reading about Final Fantasy Tactics: The War of the Lions I was ecstatic. I purchased it as soon as I could for my PSP and was slightly disappointed when I realized it was exactly the same as my Playstation game, Final Fantasy Tactics. The only difference this game has is the change in names of some characters, the dialogue is all new and worded differently as if it were out of Medieval England or some such depiction of the Medieval era, and the...
Summary: I have invested close to 200 hours in to the Gameboy Advance version of Final Fantasy Tactics, and thouroughly enjoyed the character progression and clan system. War of the Lions did little to grip me in the opening couple of hours, and I've found it less than engaging to say the least. The core of the game is still there: a solid turn based strategy game, but compared to other versions and series like Disgaea on PSP it falls short in ingenuity and replayability.
Summary: I'm a big fan of tactical RPGs, but living in the EU with an unmodded Playstation, I didn't see this the first time around. If I had, maybe I'd have liked it more! By the time FFT came around to my territory, I'd already put hundreds of hours into Tactics Ogre games on the GBA and PSP, and FFT just feels like a pale shadow of those awesome titles. The story so far isn't terrible, but isn't so instantly appealing and interesting as the TO games.
Summary: I've played the original on the original Playstation and it's a fantastic game. To replay it on the go is great, but every time you use a skill the game slows to a crawl. Which is just very disappointing. The extra CG sequences and voice work in the game however are great and add a lot to the game. The game is still great, but if you have access to either a Playstation 2 or Playstation 3 then I suggest just buying the original version if you can.
Excerpt: This game is definately my favourite game, i was so eager to play it when i knew it was being remade for the psp. I played the playstation one very frequently and this one with the added extras is on a par with it if not even better! The storyline is very interesting. It doesnt make you board after the first hour of gameplay like some other rpg's.
Pros: Perfect remake with pletny of new features MULTIPLAYER ! ! : D
