What Gamespot Users have to say about Final Fantasy XII

  • User Rating 9.4

    the game's story isn't as deep or overwhelming as ffx, but it does make up for it in what it has to bring in new.

    Rated on May 02, 2007 by Isual

    first flaw is, unlike the previous story plotlines where its about love or finding one's self, 12's plotline in a nutshell is basically politics. with that out of the way, the game's battle system in ...

    This is where the future of RPGs are headed, I feel it.

    This is *the* Final Fantasy for more mature gamers that are more nerdy-ish about their gameplay. It plays very much like a solo-MMORPG. It plays for you throughout much of the game via the Gambit Syst...

    Square Enix does it Again

    Rated on May 08, 2007 by sammysealtrs

    This is probably the most controversial out of the whole series. Final Fantasy makes a welcome return to the PS2 for a final time and wows the crowd with a wonderful new system. Along with the enhance...

    Rated on April 02, 2008 by falacu

    Made the storyline more interesting, took out that stupid LP system, made the battle system better. Basically this game sucks out loud. All of the characters models suck, the storyline is not any good...
