A fantasy RPG masterpiece for PlayStation 2 fans.

Common Sense Media
10 February 2014
  • Summary: Parents need to know that this compelling adventure game is Teen-rated and features plenty of animated violence, but it's not overly realistic (magic spells, flying airships, and over-the-top creatures). The game also showcases the sci-fi heroines, large-breasted women wearing revealing clothing and bustiers.

  • Pros: Expansive world, full of life, Lengthy, challenging quest, Engaging if infrequent story
  • Cons: Big levels get boring to explore, Character-building is weak, So low-key it's not engrossing

The Imperial Senate Will Not Stand for This

  • Excerpt: Final Fantasy XII unfortunately inaugurated the modern Square Enix practice of stupefyingly long development cycles for the series, taking a then-unprecedented five years to see completion.

Expert Review

RPGFan
11 April 2011
  • Excerpt: The PS2 era saw the absolute best of the Final Fantasy series, Final Fantasy XII being the apex. It is, along with Star Ocean 3 and Persona 4, one of the best games the system has to offer and easily the best Final Fantasy game yet. With FFXII, long gone are the one-dimensional characters, anime tropes, stock personalities, and decades old combat system.

Final Fantasy XII PS2 Review

Console Obsession
31 May 2010
  • Excerpt: Whereas each new Final Fantasy game usually brings new mechanics to the series, the game traditionally had, up until now, featured random skirmishes and anime esque storylines. On the other hand, the twelfth iteration of the popular and ever fantastic series is a complete Resident Evil 4 style reinvention of the franchise.

Flying Strong in the Not-so-friendly Skies

RPGamer
1 March 2010
  • Excerpt: Four years of waiting, several delays, and quite a few changes once hindered Final Fantasy XII from reaching North America, but now the game has been flung to the public to be picked apart and devoured. It has a difficult heritage to uphold, as it will be subjected to far more scrutiny than a non- Final Fantasy title. However, Final Fantasy XII seems to be the most carefully constructed title in the series to date, and it may be strong enough to withstand the pressure.

An Almost Perfect Fantasy

RPGamer
1 March 2010
  • Excerpt: Final Fantasy XII for the PlayStation 2 is a game riddled with drama both inside and out. Not only does the tale of Vaan and company make for an interesting story, but so does the game's development. With countless delays, the producer having a breakdown and being dismissed mid-development, extremely high Japanese praises, and a lukewarm reception of the NA demo, Final Fantasy XII raised much debate long before the game was even released.

Short of the Mark

RPGamer
1 March 2010
  • Excerpt: Final Fantasy XII returns to the world of Ivalice and brings the series back to its single-player roots after it diverted with the online Final Fantasy XI . Certainly, fans had high hopes for this game with a long four years in development and such a long time passing since the last single-player Final Fantasy , but it has also been controversial with its significant departure from the traditional Final Fantasy battle system.

Revenant Tank Rush

RPGamer
1 March 2010
  • Excerpt: For the sixth time, North American gamers get to explore the world of Ivalice. This time, it is in the form of Final Fantasy XII: Revenant Wings , a real-time strategy RPG for the Nintendo DS. Revenant Wings serves as a direct sequel to Final Fantasy XII with a host of characters returning. The game does differ greatly from the original, offering a completely different experience in terms of gameplay.
