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.
Summary: I bought this game because I love all of the Final Fantasy games for the other consoles and I played Final Fantasy Tactics for Gameboy SP and I absolutely loved it. This game is very good in the tactical aspect of things, however I hate the fact that when one of youre characters die that is not the main character they disappear out of youre squad forever. You then have to purchase a new recruit who starts out at level 1. Also the story is very um... sophisticated.
Summary: This is a great game, don't get me wrong. But I don't feel it lived up to
the high standard that Final Fantasy Tactics Advanced set. I feel it has some
of the elements of the series but is out shadowed by the new team working on the
series which leads it to feeling half baked.
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: "Overall Rating: 75% When I played Final Fantasy Tactics on the old Playstation, I was blown away. I loved it. It was one of my favourite games for the system, hell, one of my favourite games ever. When I heard they were remaking it - and even improving it, I was very excited. I was even more ecstatic when they announced that it would have multiplayer and "improved graphics". Unfortunately, the truth is that although it's a great game by any standards, ...
Pros: Excellent story, great gameplay, gorgeous FMV sequences, good multiplayer
Cons: Quite short, dated graphics, annoying lag issue, not so great sound quality
