Thoughts and Opinions of Final Fantasy XII?

Just curious to see what other people thought of this game, because I've honestly never really talked to anyone that's played it. Ran into the special edition for 9 bucks at the play N trade, so I bought it. 6 Hours in, and I'm actually really enjoying it.

Re: Thoughts and Opinions of Final Fantasy XII?

At first I didn't enjoy it because i was in the typical Final Fantasy fanboy mode. "Wahhhh it's not a true final fantasy blah blah blah" but once I got past that, I found a GREAT game. Huge world, TONS of things to do, great voice acting, superb graphics, just overall a great great game.

Plus it has one of the greatest secret bosses in all of Final Fantasy.

Re: Thoughts and Opinions of Final Fantasy XII?

Well, I actually didn't react that way. I saw the battle mode executed, and I was just kinda like "huh, this seems interesting". Loving it now, it's really eased me into the games mechanics, and it seems like it's going to be a very large game. Looks like parties are back to 5 people again, maybe even 6? That's really cool. I like how everything essentially has to be built for your character as well, even equipment and whatnot, you have to unlock through the license. Really leaves a lot to do in the game, and a lot of customization to boot. Something I haven't really felt much since V, and lesser so in VII.

Re: Thoughts and Opinions of Final Fantasy XII?

Just wait until you get into the whole gambit system. It has such depth you can literally just let the combat go on by itself and potentially break the game - or you can do it to quicken (ha) grinding. It's a great game, in any case.

Re: Thoughts and Opinions of Final Fantasy XII?

Great game I thought. Spent countless hours trying to max out each characters levels and stuff. Awesome fun and it never gets old! Some of the secret bosses are great

Yeah, I've heard there was game breaking things in it, but I generally don't abuse them. Gambits have just been introduced recently.

What's the rough amount of hours it takes to beat this? Also, I generally do everything I can in these games.

Re: Thoughts and Opinions of Final Fantasy XII?

Just the storyline itself should roughly take you 60 hours like most other FF's, maybe ten or fifteen more if you focus on a bit more sidequests. If you feel compelled to do EVERYTHING, then it could be well over two hundred hours.

Wow, crazy amount. I like the amount, I just hope I can kick my habit of not finishing long games. I don't know though, games that really interest me, I can finish usually. Happened with V & VII already.

I think the most I spent in a Final Fantasy game was VII on my third playthrough where I actually finished it. That was 40-60 hours. V was like 35 hours.

Re: Thoughts and Opinions of Final Fantasy XII?

A little late to posting but better late but I actually liked XII was the last decent FF game for me that was made after the awful X-2. Everything after this has just been shocking.

I was a fan of the battle system they created for this game was unique and very very different from the normal turn based system on Final Fantasy games where you would be taken into a battle on another screen as such instead of it being on the world map which was a plus for me since it cut out all the loading and ending of the battle phases making the game faster and tend to make grinding easier since you didnt have to wait years loading.

I also liked the Gambit system allowed you to fully select and build the characters yourself in loads of different ways instead of just having a set path like the previous games.

Re: Thoughts and Opinions of Final Fantasy XII?

At first I was a bit shaky on it, but at this point it's probably my favorite Final Fantasy game.
There's a lot of depth to the gameplay mechanics, and I really love the characters and story, even if it feels a bit derivative at times.

The way battles are handled is really refreshing to me, the 'single player mmo' feel of the game in general was nice and I love the world of Ivalice.

The retro FF games are all worth playing, at least the ones I've played. They got kinda meh when around PS2.
