Final Fantasy XII: Revenant Wings

Rating: ★★
Category: Video Games
Genre: Strategy
Console: Nintendo DS

…That I made it to the final dungeon was nothing short of miraculous, although it did take quite some time. Nearly a whole year to get there, actually, because I only touch Revenant Wings when I’m desperately bored and in-between good games. I have one last battle to fight and I can’t even finish it because apparently, I need more than one tank. Not being fond of Vaan, I didn’t exactly use him much, making him under leveled. So there. I’m officially stuck.

Where exactly did Revenant Wings fail in terms of gameplay? Aside from its penchant for overpopulating the small screen with sprites, of course. Well, if you’re going to make a real-time strategy game, you could’ve at least made the gambits (automated skills) a bit more intelligent. Read the full review at the Otaku Fridge.

    huh? no, this is ff12: revenant wings, not the original ff12. para siyang ffx-2. revenant wings happens after the ending of ff12. sana si balthier na lang ginawan nila ng game after ff12…

    TRUE!!! kaya nga pindot ako ng pindot ng A ata yun para mag-punta direcho sa summoning gate at mag-summon agad. yung X and A na ang lagi kong napipindot.
