Summary: Yes, it is unrealistic representation of the subject matter, and it plays like a Hong Kong Action Theater take and blend of World War II and the occult. So, it can seem almost humorous that way, but it was just plain fun...
Very Difficult game but get's much better the more you go through

Summary: I bought it when it was $8.99 US with free shipping and at that price this game was worth it walk into it with complete disregard of what IGN or other reviewers said of it go in with low expectations and accept the flaws and you'll truely find a hidden gem in a bargain bin value.
Pros: + an SRPG on the 360 the only other SRPG's on the 360 are Zoids Assault ( Terrible game ) Spectral Force 3 + Doesn't cater to casual gamers and actually ramps up on the difficulty to make the hardcore SPRG fan happy
Cons: -bad camera -no ability to save in the middle of battle so if you mess up tough luck -game kinda starts off slow until mission 5 not that it 's a bad thing but this does deter a lot of people from getting into the game - Not worth the current $56.99 Pricepoint on newegg
Summary: This is the best SRPG (Strategic Role Playing Game) for the XBOX 360. Yes I hated the camera, but it does not break a turn based game (use the mini map when views are blocked). If you like taking your time before making a move and studying the board this is the game for you.
I had been looking for this game for years and didn't know it

Summary: To set the stage, Final Fantasy Tactics is quite possibly my favorite game of all time. If turn-based strategy/tactics/RPG is your cup of tea, then I think you can work through the problems with this game (which there are some) and will love it.
Summary: After the numerous negative reviews by video game authorities, I hesistated to purchase this game. The demo from XBL held my attention for a few days but I wasn't able to pass that level. When the price dropped to $30 I finally picked it up and regret not getting it earlier.
Summary: First off it's true the camera is bad. It's not gamebreaking bad, it's more of a flat camera than anything. Just hit Y and you bring up the mini-map and that helps a lot. The game is hard, but if you like difficult tactics games like Final Fantasy Tactics (PS1) you'll love that anyway.
Summary: At first glance this game seems very boring, being a turn-based WWII based shooter. However, as I played it I enjoyed the clever strategy element as well as the great variety of characters. Customizing your team well is critical for your success.
