The story takes place in a world called "Ivalice", where magic exists naturally and airships fly high in the sky.

It has been 2 years since the fall of Dalmasca Kingdom, and most of the land is now under the rule of Arcadia Empire.

A new president appointed by Arcadia Empire has come to Rabanastre, the capital of the past Dalmasca Kingdom. Vaan, a boy who lives in the downtown is filled with hates and anger seeing his arrival as Vaan's brother was killed during Arcadia's invasion. He plans to sneak into the castle and steals the royal treasure. Inside the castle, he accidentally meets Ashe, the princess of Dalmasca who was believed to be dead during the war...

Ashe who has lost everything, Panelo who is Vaan's girl friend, Balthier who is a sky pirate with his partner Fran, Basch who was believed to be responsible for the death of Dalmasca's king, together with Vaan and other characters, form the huge story of Final Fantasy XII. They will be on the adventure to discover the truth behind Arcadia's invasion, as well as other hidden secrets inside the world of Ivalice.

Final Fantasy XII

Story:10 Characters:9.9 Graphics:10+ Gameplay:10++ Overall:10+

My review: It has been 5 years since the last major FF title (FF10). Final Fantasy XII finally arrives with amazing graphics, tons of new elements and surprises.

If you have been following the news about FF12, you should know that there are some major staff changes for this game. As a result, this game is in many ways different from the past FF titles. This story focuses more on wars and human conflicts, unlike the past FF titles which have more super-natural elements. The past summon beasts are gone (their names now belong to the battle ships) and replaced with new ones based on Constellations. In general, this game has many elements similar to Final Fantasy Tactics (SLG) and Final Fantasy XI (MMORPG).

Final Fantasy XII is now a complete 3D world where you can freely change your view point just like most other 3D games. The battle system has changed dramatically and is now fully integrated into this "free" 3D world. Forget about separated battle stages which are used in all previous FF titles. Now you can see monsters running around the normal field and battles take place in real time in which all your characters as well as monsters can move and act freely inside the battle. In my opinions, this is a VERY GOOD change for Final Fantasy. Battles are more realistic, more fun and require more tactics. I believe this will be the way to go for future FF titles.

I like most of the characters in this game, especially Ashe, Balthier and Fran with their excellent character designs and outstanding roles in the story. However, not every main character is as good as expected. Vaan is a disappointing one. His character design is ordinary, and his role in the adventure party and the story in general is weak. Balthier looks much more like the lead character than Vaan, who was supposed to be the one before the release of the game :P

In short, Final Fantasy XII is a real good RPG game in which no FF fans and even those who have never played FF before should miss. Yes there are many changes in this game, but still, it is Final Fantasy.
