Why is final fantasy tactics so popular?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Am I missing something? I was thinking of getting final fantasy tactics for my psp but it doesn't look all that impressive and I don't recall seeing what the big deal with the original was, why is it reviewed so high all the time?

I must say I have played through that game at least 10 times while getting all items and secrets.

Its just fun and different from the original series. Got hooked on it young when it wasn't so outdated. Might be hard to get into a game like that in todays age if you have never played it before.

I enjoy a good strategy rpg, but I find many of them I lose interest due to repitition and cliche storylines, what got you so hooked?

Story is pretty good it's final fantasy. Also at the time I had never really played a turn based strategy game that had level up mechanics and weapons armor etc, gaining classic FF spells with level ups and there is a ton of strategy needed or you will get owned.

The story is one of Final Fantasy's best. It has gripping characters and plot that is beautifully done unlike any other Final Fantasy. There is something about the game, its characters, the local, and all the themes that go into the plot that just come together to form a really awesome game.

Then there is the gameplay. Easily the best tactical RPG ever.

The PSP version is highly worth it. I mean, it's only $10-15 and possibly cheaper used. What do you have to loose?

It's an awesome game if you like strategy RPGs. The story was pretty decent as well.

I bought for the PSP over a year ago and just started playing it. So far, it's great. Love the customization.

It does have quite a good storyline, something that is lacking in quite a few strategy RPGs out there. It's not the best storyline I've ever seen but it's by no means the worst either. It also has some interesting mechanics that sets it aside from other games in the genre (e.g. the Law system), which is important considering how many similarities strategy RPGs have with each other.

Anyone that likes Final Fantasy Tactics owes it to themselves to go pick up Tactics Ogre: Let Us Cling Together on the PSP immediately.

The original SNES version served as the basis for FFT and is just as good, in some ways better.
