Final Fantasy Tactics: The War of the Lions review

  • The beautiful new cutscenes
  • The deep character creation
  • Watching the plot unravel
  • Camera can obscure your view
  • It's too hard for some
  • That you can't play on your TV

Is FF Tactics worth playing if you've never played the first one? Yes it is. And if you've already played it ten times on the PSone? Yes, it's worth it anyway. This is one of the most in-depth strategy games and touching RPGs ever made. The multiplayer and new classes aren't really necessary, but they're cool if you want to explore them. The PSP takes a classic and polishes it with new sound effects, animations and dialogue that really make this gem shine all these years. The only drawback is that it may be too time intensive or difficult for many gamers. Our advice is to suck it up and get this game anyway.
