Final Fantasy Tactics: The War Of The Lions
21 October 2013
Summary: For the vast majority of British gamers, War Of The Lions is the first time they’ve have the chance to enjoy this epic spin-off from the Final Fantasy franchise. But even if you were one of the few fanboys who bought the game on import or squandered a small fortune buying a second-hand copy on eBay, this polished PSP incarnation is still worth a punt.
Final Fantasy Tactics: The War of the Lions Review
6 September 2011
Excerpt: Long languished in comparative obscurity over its more commercially attractive namesake, War of the Lions isn’t concerned with JRPG tropes -- instead it’s a labyrinthine design of political drama, familial politics, and intrigue that just happens to have a touch of Square’s marquee role-playing series embedded within.
Final Fantasy Tactics: The War of the Lions (PSP) - Review
20 October 2009
Excerpt: Final Fantasy Tactics was one of my favorite PS1 games. Therefore, it was only logical that when I got a PSP, this port of the original game was one of the first games I needed to check. Yet, the PS1 version was released on 1997 (1998 in the West), how does an enhanced port compare to an actual game more than 10 years later?
Conclusion: In America, we’re just now getting the fine Final Fantasy Tactics: War of the Lions. In 1997, this was the game that introduced us to Ivalice (which is slowly becoming the common denominator between Final Fantasy games, thanks to the Ivalice Alliance). Ten years later, the races and politics of Ivalice are familiar, and the game feels nostalgic even to those who’ve never played it before.
Excerpt: Final Fantasy is bordering on a cult at this point. The series of loosely connected games, movies, and merchandise resonates with gamers worldwide and continues to spin off loads of new material. Square Enix has come to be known as a developer with extraordinary ideas and standards for quality largely built on the reputation of the Final Fantasy series.
