Final Fantasy XII
Japanese Release Date: March 16th, 2006
North American Release Date: October 31st, 2006
Original Platform: Sony Playstation 2

My favorite game in the whole series. Read the review here from my top twenty-five. If I can add anything new to that review itís that I just finished my fourth playthrough of this game a few weeks ago and after that I think I am done with this game. Nothing against the game, I still LOVE it, but it really has nothing new to offer me now that I've done almost everything. Thatís a problem with Final Fantasies, itís really always the same game. There are very few times you got to make a decision in the game. And even when you did the only outcome was maybe you got a different item that didnít affect the story in any way. I wouldnít recommend this game to anyone new to the series. In fact, Iíd say this is one of the LAST ones you should play. But as a fan of well over twenty years I love this game and will always love it.

Favorite Moment: none, really
Best Song: so many to choose from...Eruyt Village
Coolest Character: Reddas
Lamest Character: none, but I guess Larsa is a bit of a putz. Be a kid, kid.
Average Completion Time: unknown, but when I grind heavily (which is every time Iíve played) I clock in at around 120 hours. But the actual storyline is rather short, maybe forty hours.
Gameplay Demo: Ozmone Plains, early in the game
Rating: 6 out of 5


Final Boss: the Undying

Not sure how I feel about that battle system, reminds me of Guild Wars or something. I am sure it took some getting used to, that's for sure!

Before you get to it... I must just throw out there and say I loved Final Fantasy XIII.... that is all....

I already know how the review will go
I must say, bad characters, but I loved the graphics and gameplay of it all. Now I will politely wait with hands folded in my lap

John, I know Portland is three hours away from you but there's a Distant Worlds show there next weekend and I think you'd love it.

Final Fantasy XII: Revenant Wings
Japanese Release Date: April 26th, 2007
North American Release Date: November 20th, 2007
Original Platform: Nintendo DS

For once a sequel to an entry in the series that I actually wanted to see. Too bad it really wasnít that good. It was fun to see my old friends from the first game but the actual gameplay was terrible. It was sort-of set up like Final Fantasy Tactics but I really had no idea what I was doing when I played it. I just kept hitting stuff and usually won.

Favorite Moment: beating Zalera was pretty satisfying
Best Song: a lot of the music from XII is recycled in this game, but Esper is more prominent and awesome
Coolest Character: Balthier
Gameplay Demo: this is in Japanese but it gives you the gist of it
Rating: 2.5 out of 5


Final Boss: Feolthanos Exultant

I added a poll to the front of this thread...you know, so me and John can vote for our favorite game in the series...

Nah, I'm sure it'll get at least three other votes...maybe?
