Final Fantasy Tactics


Final Fantasy Tactics is a classic game for the Playstation which is still great fun to play in the days of the Playstation 2.

The graphics are reasonably good, with three dimensional characters and environments. The church you start out near, for examples, looks like one you might construct out of paper and color the walls of. Very flat with few surfaces, but relatively reasonable for the time.

Gameplay involes you and your group of up to 7 friends trying to figure out a war between two halves of the country you're in. Each character has its own strengths and weaknesses, of course, and they gain in skill as they go through battles.

Battle is turn based and involves your 3D characters and your enemies on a map. You have to move close to your enemies to fight with them, and figure out who to move in close and who to keep further off. This is different than the Final Fantasy RPG series where in essence your team stands in a line, the enemy stands in a line, and you simply fire at each other.

There are of course chocobos, your yellow friends that can carry you around. In this version, they can even lay eggs! You never know what will hatch out of one, and it's a neat way to add new monsters to your group.

I will comment that the translations are pretty awful, the letters appear S - L - O - W - L - Y on the screen and the plot is rather complex with names and alliances to keep track of. But that's a minor flaw given how fun the game is.

Highly recommended to any Final Fantasy fan, even though it's a bit old. You can usually get it inexpensively, and it's well worth it!
