Storyline

War is on the horizon. Seeking to strengthen its base of power, the great Archadian Empire has been invading and subjugating its neighboring kingdoms, one by one. The small kingdom of Dalmasca was one of it. When the occupying Archadian forces established a new consul in Dalmasca's royal city of Rabanastre, it caught the intention of Vaan, an urchin living on the streets. To Vaan, the Empite was an enemy hated by himself who had taken the life of his brother--his last surviving family member. Vaan hatches a plan to sneak into the castle housing the new consul. But before he had the chance, Vaan got far more that he bargained for; a resistance movement of former Dalmascan soldiers rising up against the Archadian Empire were launching an assault!

Trivia

Gilgamesh, an enemy found in the elite hunt 'Ancient Man of Mystery', is a reference to the same enemy in Final Fantasy V. The music played during this optional battle is an updated version of the same song, 'Clash on the Big Bridge', also played during the Gilgamesh battle in Final Fantasy V. Gilgamesh in Final Fantasy XII also wields a number of swords owned by previous Square Enix heroes, such as Cloud Strife's Buster Sword, Tidus' Brotherhood, or the Loto Sword from Dragon Quest.

Rank high up there with the best of Final Fantasy
2 November 2006 | by See all my reviews

I have been playing this game for about 10 hours. Every minute of this game is worth it, the battle system is fantastic, and I really enjoy the new direction they took the series. The Gambit system is a fine addition to the battles, and it really gives players a lot to choose from when customizing each character for battle.

The license board is also done well, and it kills the sphere grid previously seen in Final Fantasy X. You can customize your characters differently or the same, and you have the freedom to do it, there are no restrictions like in the Sphere Grid.

It's refreshing to play something new from Final Fantasy, and it does not disappoint. The story so far is very interesting, and extremely involving. This is one game, especially in the Final Fantasy series that one will not want to miss.
