FFXII: Revenant Wings - Worth getting it?
I'm not sure weather or not to buy FFXII: RW. I've seen a few reviews about it. On Metacritic.com the average review was 83 out of 100 base on 26 press reviews. Not sure if I want to spend money on this game now.
What do you guys think? Is it worth getting this game or not?

I say yes.
As much as XII failed as a good RPG, the world of Ivalice was amazing and the *small amount of* background story on everything left so much room open. Supposedly XII delves more into Ivalice's past and reveals more stuff. I'll probably get a ROM of it whenever an English one becomes available, you can always do that too, or just wait till it's cheaper.
I also wouldn't mind commanding a league of chocobos to battle my enemies

This is a first, but I agree with VR, but for different reasons.
In this game, the characters have these things called emotions. Yeah, I know, a completely new concept to ff12. So, take all of the good things about ff12, except graphics, add a touch screen, and chuck in some emotions, ad that makes one hell of a good game

Wow, I never thought I'd see the day when Darkstar said something that full of win. I applaud you, good sir, there might still be some hope left for you.

I'd say it's pretty good. I got it yesterday, and I'm on Chapter 6. Loveable characters, but an odd battle system. It's the same system from this other game I used to have... What was it? Crud, I can't remember. Just look at some screenshots. I guess you should get it, I'd give it an 8/10. I was expecting something like FFIII. But yes, I suggest you get it.

It seems like a great game and all but im not too sure ill go out to get a DS over it. Now if i owned a DS id get it. Ive looked at a few screenshots and it looks like a great game. I for one wasnt a fan of the PS2 version other then its graphics. But the character seem to be alittle better. (yes i know there the same characters >.>)

Haha, so I was actually browsing around and came across this thread because I wanted to know if I should get it not. As I was thinking, my brother was opening his presents as it is his birthday today...
Then all of a sudden he shouted, "YES! I got FFXII Revenant Wings!"
xD Now I don't have to get it. I can just borrow his game. Weeeee. I'll be playing it today and I'll edit this post some time later.

I'm seeing it in all of the shops right now and I'd really like to get it but, before I do, I want to hear quite a bit of feedback on it, so I thought this thread was the most appropriate. I don't even own a DS, you see, so buying this would mean a hell of a lot of persuasion for my little cousin to part with it for the time being. xD
I wouldn't expect the game to be remarkable in any way, really, but it's Final Fantasy XII all the same. You know me, biased little bugger towards XII.
I now see my true enemy. He waits for me in the Void, wielding powers I cannot imagine.
I go to face him, having renounced everything: my humanity, my identity, the man I love.
But I will not face this enemy alone.
I am the Swarm!

Meh, it's hit-and-miss with me. Some aspects I love, others I hate. I tend to look to much into games, but if there's a genuine flaw, I'll note it.
What I Like:
* Character emotions
* Character development
* Unique Character classes! Huzzah! No clones! (Quickenings that don't suck as a bonus )
* The Battle System
* FMV's! ... Despite there only being 5 so far.
* I'm actually impressed by the graphics for the most part.
What I Dislike:
* Discontinuation in Lore
* The Espers ... if you can call them that.
* Coincidences, that are too Deus Ex Machina.
* The Plot ... WTF? It has less of a plot than XII, and that is f*cking saying something.
* The Villains ... pretty baddass concept for the main villain ... but it's already been done (*coughVandalHeartscough*), one set of villains have an even worse case of "WHY WON'T YOU DIE?!!" than Seymour ... and Generic Grunt villains (think LotR orcs in terms of behaviour and place in the story, lots of them and completely replaceable) are just ... naff.
~~Only 49% of the way through, however ... and I only bought it yesterday ... I was expecting a longer game ~~
