Final Fantasy Tactics A2 :: DS Game Review
Jump into the fantasy world of Ivalice and lead a team of heroes in this fantastic new game for the Nintendo DS. Here’s Gary’s game review!
Starting off in an ordinary world, Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift (wow, what a name!) drops an ordinary kid through a magic book into the fantasy world of Ivalice. As the hero of the story, suddenly you're the leader of a clan of warriors in a world of monsters, magic and legend. With each adventure you fill another page in a mysterious journal that holds the secret to getting home. Gary took it for a spin and here's his Final Fantasy Tactics game review.
Ivalice or BustAs a clan leader, you get a team of fantasy characters to command. From ninjas to wizards and even Vikings, you get to customize their skills and combine them to form a team that can tackle any quest. You get the quests in towns and they challenge you to complete goals from battling monsters to finding items and rescuing people. As you complete quests you power-up your characters and explore more of the world of Ivalice.
Fantastic Fantasy FunIf you like fantasy adventure, you're in luck because this game is packed with it! There are hundreds of quests, nearly 100 hours of gaming, auctions to take over areas, an entire clan to control and a world to explore. With 56 jobs and over 100 items to play with, you can customize your clan in hundreds of different ways. Plus, you can trade with your friends to help unlock powerful items!
Some Stupid StuffUnfortunately, your opponents are dumb and make some pretty silly moves. It makes beating them easy, but takes some of the challenge out of the game. The only other problem is the judge rules that get set each combat are completely random and sometimes you'll have no control over whether you break them and get a penalty.
Dive Into Ivalice?This game is a fantastically rich adventure that's so full of options, features and ways for you to do things your way that it'll boggle your brain! It also has an interesting story, different battle modes and some really cool ways for you to make your clan the coolest in the land. The dumb enemies are a bit frustrating, but this is still an excellent game that you'll be able to enjoy for ages.
