    Final Fantasy XII

    I have been wanting to play this game, but unfortunately I gave away my PS2 before it came out so I never got a chance to do so. I got a PS3 today, so I decided to pick up a copy of it. I started playing it expecting something great, as I have never played a FF that I didn't like and they are my favorite series. Well I hate the new combat system. The old turn based system was much better IMO. I haven't got very far, but it seems that it has a pretty good story. It looks like ass too, even with upscaling.

    So what do you guys think of this game and the new combat system?

    Oh, and sorry about this being in the PS3 section, but we don't have a PS2 section and this seemed to be the most fitting for the topic.

    I actually thought that the battle system was going to be really bad (because I love the turn-based system), but it turned out to be great. It does start off very slow, with limited abilities, but once you master the License Board, you have a great combat system within your grasp.
    I would give anything to have the old system back, but this one is still entertaining.

    did you update the firmware all the way? Also did you go into the OS and make sure its displaying the needed resolution? When I got my PS3 I had to manually set the resolution to the max my tv could handle, or else it just displayed the lowest.

    If you look at PS2 graphics FFXII was top of the line, I own it. It had the best story of all FFs I've ever played (all except FFXI), and the new battle system is phenomenal, it just takes getting used to.

    Ya, I have it all setup. I think I am just getting too used to the superb HD graphics on 360/PS3 games.

    To be honest, I thought the new battle system didn't go far enough. I was hoping for them to abandon turn-based combat altogether and go for real-time (like in the Tales series), but instead they went for a bizarre system that was semi-turn-based and was just not much fun. But it's still a pretty good game, the story is good and there's plenty to do.



    I never add friend codes.

    I liked the new battle system and the graphics were great, but I hated the voice acting and the characters. The only characters that didn't annoy me were Basch, Balthier, and Ashe.

    Prefer the turn-based, never really got into it, started playing FFIX and FFX again.
    Just got my Ps3! The Wii is now gathering dust until Super Smash Brawl!

    Didnt like the battle system till i made it active. Got rid of the constant pausing. Try that and see if it helps.


    I don't want rep. Rep me again and I'll have half a mind to rep each and every one of you.

    I decided to play it again today actually, I didn't like the battle system at first but it get's amazing further in the game, it's so much more tactical than the others, storyline... amazing! One of the best FF's I've played
