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: This is a remake/revision of Final Fantasy Tactics which was originally released for the PS1 back in 1998. They pretty much just ported this game to the PSP. Not much has changed really, which is good. 95% of the game is the same classic game from the 90's with a few new things. The dialogue was rewritten, for reasons I'm not sure. A few character names were changed. Names of abilities and spells were changed. Two new classes were added to the game.
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: 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: 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: 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: "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
Conclusion: The game is fun, the cut scence are cool and the game play is very much like that of vandel hearts on the ps1 its turn based, you move like your on a board game and it has the job system of early final fantasy's ittergrated into it too.
