Final Fantasy XII is one of the most ambitious games in the series.

The new installment to one of the most ambitious series to hit the gaming world. How does Final Fantasy XII stack up to the series? To say the least, Final Fantasy XII is one of the most ambitious games in the series to hit the shelves but unfortunately it just falls short. The license system is quite weak and has no depth or originality.

Final Fantasy XII is a beautiful world to roam to say the least, but its too big for its own good and roaming the desert does get dull a bit too easily. The cinematics are up there with Final Fantasy VII as they at times can blow you away and really make you believe you're in another world far beyond the one we live, but overall the developement team did have a lot of difficulty putting this game together which results in a game which is like one giant jigsaw puzzle.

Don't be fooled! Final Fantasy XII is a cracking game but it does seem that the developers tried to fit too much into the one disc. I do feel that Final Fantasy XII is before its time which as a result ends up being a game where the peices just don't fit together and as a result don't fall into place.
