Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Making FFX2 look like Proust

Posted by Sir Cucumber at 8:05 AM on Wednesday, February 4, 2009

Here we go again. I finally finshed Endwar and thought I'd try the new Final Fantasy Tactics. Anyone who remembers the first Tactics (high five) knows that the first sequel on the GBA took a lighter tone, trading the epic strife of noblemen for some kids getting lost in a book. Despite inspiring the world for FF12, Tactics Advance was an inane substitute for the intricate and pioneering original. So naturally, when it came time to make the sequel to the sequel, they learned from this mistake and crafted a highly intricate and pioneering tale about a kid getting lost in a book. Except this time he doesn't have the character developing burdens of a sickly lil' bruddah, a wimpy friend who is prince of the parellel world and thus doesn't want to go home, or, you know, a personality.

So far, so good! Updates to come.
