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.

Did You Know?


This Final Fantasy title was developed by many of the same people who worked on Fainaru fantajî takutikkusu (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 »

Great Way to end up the PS2 Final Fantays series
9 March 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Excellent! Bravo! Best game out there, i'd give it a 20 out of 10.

But this game took me 185 hours to beat! But I completed all of the side quests along with all the optional bosses etc. Probably 1/4 of that 185 hours was storyline.

I still remember the feeling of waiting for the game to come out, staying in my room playing 10 and 8, just thinking and wondering what the game was going to be like, then I got it and was thrown into a world of war and peace and kings and queens. Definitely the Final Fantasy that is apart from the others. You know what I mean FF fans, the other FF games are all corny and crap, then 12 comes in and it's about war and crap, which definitely made it better.

I loved the game play. No more random battles people! Thats a thing of the past man, they had to move on and they did! I was very happy. You could actually see the enemies in ADVANCE! The storyline was well thought out but It could of been better I believe.

Square Enix also had the time to make huge and extremely hard bosses. Take Yiazmat for example. A total of approximately 50 million HP, and doubles his level to level 146 when you almost kill him. Took me 5 hours to beat.

Well there you have it, reasons the game had gotten the best rank of the FInal Fantays series, all in a couple paragraphs.
