Storyline

War is on the horizon. Seeking to strengthen its base of power, the great Archadian Empire has been invading and subjugating its neighboring kingdoms, one by one. The small kingdom of Dalmasca was one of it. When the occupying Archadian forces established a new consul in Dalmasca's royal city of Rabanastre, it caught the intention of Vaan, an urchin living on the streets. To Vaan, the Empite was an enemy hated by himself who had taken the life of his brother--his last surviving family member. Vaan hatches a plan to sneak into the castle housing the new consul. But before he had the chance, Vaan got far more that he bargained for; a resistance movement of former Dalmascan soldiers rising up against the Archadian Empire were launching an assault! Amid the ensuing confusion that engulfed the castle, Vaan saw something he could scarcely believe. There, among the members of the resistance, was the figure of the sole remaining heir to the Dalmascan throne, Princess Ashe, who had been ... Written by IGN.com

Trivia

This Final Fantasy title was developed by many of the same people who worked on Final Fantasy Tactics (1997), Vagrant Story (2000), and Final Fantasy Tactics Advance (2003). While Tactics and XII take place in the same world (in a region known as Ivalice), Tactics Advance's Ivalice is a separate magical dreamworld, based on XII's setting. Interviews with the development team have revealed that, in the 'true' Ivalice, XII takes place an undiclosed amount of time before Tactics. See more »

A Revolutionary and Enjoyable Final Fantasy
24 December 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

To be honest, after the disappointment of X-2, i didn't have good feelings about XII, but man was i wrong. As soon as i picked up this game, i could not put it down. The graphics are even better than its predecessors, the plot was very good, and the dialogue wasn't unbearable or cheesy. Not to mention the new battle system, which was very well done because instead of random encounters, you now have the option of fighting the enemies wondering around (with the exception of boss battles). The game also offers a lot to do to keep the players occupied. The hidden bosses, the hunts, completing the sky pirates den (achievements within the game) and even acquiring the best weapons of each class gives the game player plenty to do and very well entertained. For me, it truly revolutionized the style of Final Fantasy (IMO).

This game is definitely an excellent addition to the final fantasy series and is a game that should not be missed by any final fantasy fans.

Rating: 10/10
