I love this game. I love all Final Fantasy games (well, almost). The game, the characters, and the story, are all amazing. This game will prove to you if you really love the Final Fantasy series. the battle system is new and innovating. The characters are very cool too. Not to mention that I have every Final Fantasy game there is to date, this is my favorite. The graphics are awsome. Some of the cutscenes have some of the most beautiful grahics i've ever seen; the thing is, i own an 360. The graphics during gameplay live up to the Playstion 2 standards, although there is parts where you say- "That could be better". That however, is a rare thing to say during this game. The battle system is very cool. If you have ever played an MMORPG, then you'll be very familiar with it. I'll explain it for you who haven't. You basically press X to target an enemy. After that you wait for the action bar to fill up. When it does fill up, then you run over to the targeted enemy, and you'll attack. The gambit system lets you command and control the teammate AI. The gambit system is also new to many Final Fantasy players. It's pretty easy. All you do is select gambits from the in game menu, and you'll pick an ally to edit. With this feature you can tell an ally to attack the party leaders target, or the enemy nearest to them. You can also do stuff such as assain an ally to use a potion when your health gets below 40. I won't ruin all the awsome stuff you can do. Final Fantasy XII is the best Final Fantasy in my opionion. Even better than VII. But hey, thats just me. So I reccomend this game to any Final Fantasy gamer.
