In the town of St. Ivalice (don’t get ahead of me!) four school friends gather together to read from one of the character’s favorite books, coincidentally called “Final Fantasy”. As they read through the book, the four are suddenly swept away to a kingdom that bares an identical name as their town.
The gameplay for Final Fantasy Tactics Advance is pretty identical to that of the original game on the Playstation, the only difference this time around is the introduction of judges, and that it was released on the Gameboy Advance.
You also have the inclusion of the character class system again, but with the addition of the judges certain rules are applied to various battlefields where either you cannot utilize magic, abilities, or certain classes. Failure to comply with the rules leads a specific character in jail for a small amount of time. It can also make some scenarios a little more difficult to make it through.
I really enjoyed Final Fantasy Tactics Advance more so than the first title, not to say I didn’t like on the contrary. I think what drew me to this game was the storyline, something about being sucked into a book and adventuring around has always been a bit of a fascination for me when it comes to fiction, especially in the fantasy genre.
Definitely an awesome game, and my favorite out of the Final Fantasy games.
