Well i love it !! it's one of the best ff games but i kinda like ffx & x-2 the most cause they where one of my first games The storyline in ffx&x-2 where just better i don't know why but it just was better..
I can't explain how hyped up I was for this game to release. The day it was hitting the shelves I couldn't help but dencouorage my friend to drive over 90 in his Camaro to the mnall to pick it up because of how long I had waited for this game.
Overall, this was a GREAT game! It took the beauty of the PS2 abilities and the awesomeness of a story, with side-quests galore, and made a spectacular game! Game of the year for 2006.

Mixed feelings for me. I like the combat system where-as you could actually MOVE AROUND and use some more tactics (Switch to Balthier when fighting a major enemy, have him shoot and run away. get closer, shoot, run away, repeat) and customize your AI. However the lack of playable Bangaa (I love Bangaa) ticked me off, I mean, you see them just about anywhere. Quickenings sucked pretty badly. Can't say to much else since I haven't finished it yet. I like the story though...

I really did like FFXII. The story was fairly good, and there was a decent amount of character development. The battle system was new and somewhat challenging. I didn't exactly find myself dying a lot nor did I find myself walking around owning everything. I simply found myself having to be watchful and making a few moves in order to live.
Though I do admit some of the end game hunts were really hard and long and I didn end up dying quite a few times doing them.
The actual ending (boss part of it) was kind of random in a sense. I really don't know how else to explain it. Really it was just farfetched I guess. Still I didn't find myself disappointed.
I like the game for many of the reasons stated above; the License board, the ATB, graphics.
What I really liked though, was the loot drops instead of random amounts of gil. I mean, some monsters still drop gil, but only the ones where it would make sense that they had gil in the first place. Instead of Bombs dropping a tidy amount of cash each, they -might- drop valuable or not so valuable loot. It all depends. The Bazaar was also a good idea.
I really enjoyed Final XII. My favorite story line was X, but I loved the updated mechanics in XII's battle system (gambits and 3d game play rocked) and the license board. I'd give anything to see a similar license board in XIII, but with a more specific path for each character like X's sphere grid. I really think Final XII made as large a jump in RPG gaming as X did over IX. I do agree that the story in XII was just barely not quite up to usual FF standards, but I also think we've been a bit spoiled by the great stories told since VII... Oh, and I'm in love with Fran.

The "Final Fantasy" is the one your create for yourself!
It was ok i guess, there were things I liked. The hunts were one of the best side games that I have seen in final fantasy, and Reddas is deffinately my favourite npc in the series. That said the storyline was woefully inadequet compared to the rest of the final fantasy`s, the characters were not developed at all, for me that was the biggest mistake SE made........................I didn`t really care what happened to Vaan, Ashe and co. And I would have prefered the Espers to have had the usual names (shiva, ifrit, bahamut etc) rather than those going to the airships.
Still i`m playing it at the moment so it can`t be that bad..................but it could have been so much better.
I decided to give FFXII another chance and I asked for my copy back from my cousin.
I'm surprisingly hooked this time around, the graphics are fresh, the VAs are tolerable (Fran's especially) and the battle system is starting to grow on me.
However, the amount of underground stages is irking me at the moment, the bland and repetitive surroundings are an eye sore and the fact that there 100,000,000 different types of elemental, T-rex and flan is annoying.
Overall I wouldn't say that I love this game and I wouldn't say that I hate it, I'm just enjoying it at the moment.
The hardest thing you'll ever learn Is just to love and be loved in return
