    Great remaster

    It's a good game that even holds up to this day. My only complaint is some of the textures on the environment look dated.

    I played this game when it was first released on PS2. My word has it been improved. The graphics look very clean in this remaster, and they have used the japanese release's battle system to revamp the feel of this game entirely for anyone familiar with the previous system. I far prefer this system to the old one, as it is much more customizable and just downright fun to play.

    A more convenient classic

    Posted .

    This is my first PS2 to PS4 HD remake from Square-Enix. I have played the original on PS2 back in the day and put so many hours of my life into Final Fantasy XII. I have not played it in over 10 years, so it feels 'new' and 'old' in certain ways. I vaguely remember the story and the amount of side quests was crazy! It makes me feel like I am getting to know an old friend all over again after 10 years of being away. The updated graphics are far better than the original, although no where near as realistic at Final Fantasy XV. The music is fully orchestrated and beautifully recorded. On a side note: you have the option to use the original PS2 music or the newly recorded orchestrated soundtrack. Just switch it in the options menu. The new Zodiac Job system is a welcome relief too! I hated that all the characters 'grew up' becoming the same. Now there is a lot more thought and planning involved with the party selection. I have an open mind and I enjoyed most, if not all, the numbered Final Fantasy games. Square tries to be innovative and back in 2006, this was innovative with the battle system, gambit system and license board. If you haven't played the original, buy this version instead. In my opinion it is far more enjoyable than the original.

    4.5 stars, RPG/MMO fans will enjoy

    I always give every FF game a chance but rarely finish one of them as they often lose me at some point in their very long campaigns. I didn’t play the original FFXII but I did enjoy this updated version for various reasons. The upgrade system for your squads attritibutes and combat abilities is very flexible and feels rewarding. It reminds me most of the FFX sphere grid but with a bit more options. The combat is different than other FFs as it is not turn based but more of a live action auto attack setup that also relies on you setting up pre determined auto actions for each character called “gambits” and it works surprisingly very well. The story is overall intriguing and good enough to keep you engaged, with a fair amount of beautiful cutscenes and interesting landscapes. My one very major gripe that almost led to me quitting halfway through is the lack of/overall complexity of navigation and direction. It is frustratingly difficult at times to know exactly where you are supposed to be going. The areas are almost all connected to each other which in and of itself is nice but there’s no easily accessible overall world map that would show you which direction to head. On top of that there are sometimes not markers on the minimap to give you an inkling of what general area you should be heading, leading to you sometimes wasting minutes and hours roaming into areas you shouldn’t be in yet and getting slaughtered by high ranking mobs. There are a handful of teleportation areas but they are too few between and also require you to use up one of your teleport stones to access. I just feel like a couple minor quality of life choices could have made this very good RPG a perfect one, while still allowing the player to enjoy exploration of the vast world created here.

    Great Game, but why no PC release?

    |
    Posted .

    TLDR Great FF game with good story and great combat system, the job is whatever. The only gripe is I would rather have this on my PC. Honestly this game is awesome and brings back so much nostalgic joy. I personally loved this game and the combat system that it had. The gambit system is just a bunch of IFTTT ( If this then that )commands you give your party to follow. The story is good, but not quite as good as 6 or 9. The job system is an interesting twist to this game. Instead of everyone doing everything and mindlessly following specific routes on the old leveling system, you now do this on job boards that limit roles. Of course you can still max your builds if you prefer, but the nice thing here is the game encourages you to try new things and variety. Honestly I feel like this is a meh party for me. Some people may call me crazy, however I could care less about the job system unless its a Tactics style system. My only complaint on this game is how Square drags their feet on PC release games. Sure no one has confirmed release of this game or other newer FF games for PC, but the writing is on the wall and they will. As I get older as a gamer I prefer the ease of games on PC and having things linked up via Steam Etc so I know where all my games and saves are. I hate the fact that I have bought games for the PS, PS2, PS3 and PS4 separate times because the catalog doesn't follow to the next system and is no longer backwards compatible. Still this is a great game and I will be a FF fanboy and buy this game and play it when it comes out. The game has 100+ hours of playtime for me and that value is wonderful.

    Zodiac Age Vs PS2 USA Original

    |
    Posted .

    First off, the texturing of this game looks AMAZING. Objects, such as clothing, that once looked almost paper-like are now glossier, more 3D in depth and clay-like in texture. There is less of a difference graphic wise when the game goes into a cinema; meaning the game play graphics are more like the cinemas. Since I played the PS2 version so long ago, I can't really comment on how much better the cinemas are. I really do like the game. It was a great first step towards an open world, active battle RPG. I like the Trial Mode. It's great for Gil and LP farming in the beginning of the game. The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is because of the Licensing System. It is different than the Original USA version. In The Zodiac version, or the original International version, the board is more limited. In the Original USA version, you could make every character capable of ALL magic and able to use ALL weapons and armor. It made the game so much easier and MORE FUN!

    Excellent remaster of one of the best PS2 RPGs

    |
    Posted .

    This remaster of the original Final Fantasy 12 brings one of the best PS2 RPGs to modern consoles. The Zodiac Age includes content that was included on the Japanese only release. The gameplay models a single-player MMORPG style, where you provide inputs for your party and they carry them out. Those that want more variety can set scripts to have party members react based on a battles events. As for the story, the game returns to Ivalice and tells a grand scale tale of warring nations and those that are caught up in it. It was one of my favorite PS2 RPGs and this remaster does it a great service.

    Thoughts on FFXII

    |
    Posted .

    It's not just an HD scaling of a game. It comes with additions that were not seen in the US release. I do recommend this FF game not because I enjoyed it, but because of it being part of a wonderful spin-off world and franchise (the FF tactics series). Do try it out. Mind you the gameplay is that of an MMO (EX: World of Warcraft)

    The resurgence of a Great Game

    |
    Posted .

    FFXII initially released in the PS2's twilight years, to the regret of many fans who wished it to spread further but was stopped by its timing near the PS3 launch. Many years later, SE released an international version which never came overseas, but was lauded to fix problems noticed in the original. Now, we're very lucky to have the chance of playing FFXII remastered, which takes the best parts of the international version and dials it up to 10. But, most buyers aren't interested in the history behind this, so I'll bullet point why it's great. *New license board that makes every character unique and a class board you can mix and match to create a character tailor made for you *Dozens of hours of side quests and hunt missions *Newly rendered graphics *A cast of characters you can't help but fall in love with *An intriguing, seamless world to get lost in

    fuels my final fantasy obsession and collection

    I absolutely loved everything about the original game including the old lisence board and mechanics. The updated sound and graphics are amazing. Really happy to play again on hemi vs av. Some small differences like treasure locations...At first I wasn't too happy about the new license board and am still getting use to the lack of complete freedom.... Yet at the same time, I'm enjoying this second go a bit more then if it had been 100% like the original I guess for a new challenge although I had the old system down pat. Excited that there are fair trophies as well for that extra feel goodness. moonless chocobos exciting story arventure and tons of side quests!!!! I love how lost in another world I feel while playing this game.

    Not the best Final Fantasy game but not the worst either. This is nowhere near as good as Final Fantasy 7 or Final Fantasy 7 remake or Final Fantasy 9 or Final Final fantasy X or Final Fantasy 3 but it's ok more on par with Final Fantasy XIII or XV. If you are a fan of the Final Fantasy Series and this is cheap enough it's worth a play.

    I didn't get a chance to play this when it was originally released, and after playing it for a few hours it holds up very well and has been a blast to play and dive into! The game and graphic design is unique to this story and the fighting system works well for this type of RPG. I'm happy I picked it up and added it to my collection, and I can see myself putting in many hours into this game!

    Great Remake of a Classic

    |
    Posted .

    FFXII has always been one of my favorite entries in the series. The gambit system is something I wish other jrpgs would pick up and remake in some form or fashion. This remake holds true to the original while updating the licensing board with the Japanese zodiac age version of the game. Some may not like this, as it limits the abilities of each character a bit, and prevents you from creating nearly unstoppable walls by giving everyone all magic. But I like this - it adds some difficulty to the game and forces you to really think about how you progress through the boards. Other annoying things, such as treasure chests you can't touch until late game, have been removed. Overall, I recommend highly, especially on sale.

    Great Remaster

    Posted .

    FF12 remaster is a great trip down nostalgia lane, although it's age definitely show's it does not take anything away from what is a fantastic jrpg. For people who haven't played it before it has a steeper learning curve than most if not all other FF games, but once mastered the combat is extremely satisfying and the inclusion of a secondary job allows for more refined character development and is a very welcome change to the formula. The soundtrack remains as memorable as ever with slight changes to the music and overall far better sound quality, the characters no longer sound as if they are speaking through a paper tube. I'm overjoyed that my favorite FF in the series got the HD treatment and improved what was already a great game.

    pretty sweet game

    I played this back on the ps2 and it was ok, was my least favorite FF at the time (was before FFXIII and all of those extremely lame games came out) but now with this new update I actually am enjoying this a lot. The main character still looks weird to me but the mechanics, gambits, gameplay, all of those are pretty solid. The graphics look like exactly what they are, a dated game with a beautiful uplift. For the most part everything looks great, just some of the characters look weird because of the way wrapping skins on 3D meshes used to be done. Even with those tiny tiny complaints this game is awesome. I would've given this game a 2 maybe a 3 on ps2 so that should tell you how much it's improved.

    One of the better remakes out there

    |
    Posted .

    As one of my favorite Final Fantasy games I can't really say how much I liked this remake. It goes beyond the usually frame-rate spike and resolution upgrade that many games have done before and make the game more enjoyable for a current audience. The skill system has been reworked for a more enjoyable balance and variety in characters, you can speed up the game to get through longer parts (something that I really want in every classic JRPG now) and the music has been remastered. It may not be for everyone but for any RPG fan this game is really the best of the best for setting the bar for re-releases.

    Definitive edition of an underated gem

    |
    Posted .

    This is one of my favorite final fantasy games, and one that I think deserves much more recognition than it gets. This remaster adds plenty of new features (zodiac job system, ability to speed up movement and battles, etc) and spruces up the visuals a bit. There's enough of a refresh here to warrant another playthrough if you're a veteran, and obviously well worth your time if you happened to skip over this one in the PS2 days. The voice acting is fantastic for it's time, and the story is a classic rebellion against an evil empire, with some twists and classic FF faire.

    While FFXII may not be as popular as other entries in the beloved franchise....its story is pretty slow and kinda unengaging, it takes awhile to get the ball rolling....it has a really great battle system which was one of the first times they really tried something different and new with the series. While you can still fully control each member of your party, the draw of the gameplay comes with the ability to program each person's tendencies in battle which eventually leads to you just directing the characters around its ginormous world as they react, fight, and support each other the way you set them up. This system brought a high level of strategy into the mix, and while polarizing to many, was a refreshing change for others. Definitely worth a look!

    I was never really one for JRPGs (Japanese Role Playing Games), and especially the Final Fantasy series, but I fell in love with this one. Fun side activities, great enemy designs, lovely environments, and a great soundtrack heighten the experience to an impressive level.
