Final Fantasy XII is definitely brilliant. I am just so happy that the gameplay has evolved. I really didn't like the changing of screens in battles in previous games. Even though this is still kinda turn based, its the kind of turn based i can deal with. Other Final Fantasy games I only played were for the story and not the gameplay. The gameplay here definitely got me addictive. The story is definitely cool because it feels like Star Wars. The characters are nice but they didn't feel really memorable. The voice acting is no other word but perfection, though. The best in any game! The graphics are truly something to behold and I could see somebody definitely buy this for the art style alone. I really fell in love with the world. I have read that the soundtrack has been getting mixed reviews. I personally love it! Again it sounds like Star Wars sometimes and perfectly blends in with the environment. I am now a Final Fantasy addict because of the evolution in the gameplay. Its just so much fun. I am proud to say that Sqaure Enix has probably given us one of the best games in the PS2 library.
