    Incredibly good value, easy to pick up... impossible to take your eyes away!

    Rated on May 05, 2007 by divb

    FFTA is possibly one of my fave games in my entire gba career. So many options to choose from, and as usual there's half a million jobs to choose from... make a clan of powerful mages, fierce warriors...

    Meh.

    If I had to use one word to describe this game, that would be it. Meh. There's nothing really terrible about it, but there's also nothing that could make it stand out above the crowd, other than the...

    Its taken me awhile, but I didn't want to post my own review until I had had a chance to play the game for a substantial amount of time. The first thing I would like to say is this... the link option ...

    Just take note that without dedication, you won't get through the repetitive missions the game has.

    Final Fantasy Tactics Advance is a very noteworthy game and will remain so for many reasons. This is the first game that finished development since the merger between Square Soft and Enix – Square Eni...

    A fun little game that is light hearted and easy to pick up and play.

    This is a great portable game. I played this on the train every day on the way to work. One the best things about it is the nice short battles where you even have the option to stop playing at any poi...

    Although very pretty and musically sound, FFTa is a fairly large letdown due to simplified battles and a lacking story.

    Rated on December 28, 2005 by LordGradient

    Tactics Advance was not everything I hoped it would be. The battles were way too easy (they were even easier than the encounters in Tactics Ogre TKOL); and the story was pathetic in pretty much every...

    When Final Fantasy Tactics Advance first came out, I was skeptical, mainly because I never really was a hard core Final Fantasy fan. I picked it up when I first heard how good it was, and now I can't ...

    It seems only fitting that the more youthful spinoff to Squaresoft's classic tactical RPG Final Fantasy Tactics is also the only Game Boy or Game Boy Advance title able to claim upwards of sixty hours...
