While it lacks the sort of high-def shininess found in the latest Xbox 360 offerings, the sheer impact the visuals hold is equal to or better than anything we've yet seen from the next generation.
wow this game is insane !!!
Yeah !, and its a PS2 title at that. No doubt PS2 is still having the best what the industry has to offer.
I don't see anything impressive about this game. I mean c'mon the visuals aren't that great.
I guess it looks good for an "last gen" game but it's still way behind the curve. It certainly dosen't look as good as Halo 2 or Fable.
is this a joke ? fable ? lol. fable has crappy graphics in comparison with ff12. the effects are the best i have ever seen , even the characters are better than the most games!!!
I reckon you could compare this game to fable, look closer to the pics achira. These pics look crap compared to probably any other next gen game available right now.
This IS a PS2 game. The reviewer has mentioned that the "the sheer impact the visuals hold" is what makes it stands up. PLZ read the full review. What RPGs make at most of a town is around 20 houses at max and a few NPCs for the amount of their animations and dialogues PLUS day and night routines makes it difficult to accomplish at a bigger number...but FF12 has surpassed everything as this game doesnot contain a little town but whole cities of individual characters wandering about with their own AI and animations, and that's just the tip ofthe ice berg, the gameplay, music, game-length and all makes this game a 9.4/10 worth by Kikizo, also their mentioning of it as equal or above next-gen what 360 has shown uptil yet. Remind you this is a PS2 title and not even a PS3 one and already you get an awesome package if you get it !!!
The game looks allright I must say, but my PS2 is still suffering of a died sh*tty quality DVD drive, so won't pick it up.
Hey that's funny there's also a giant enemy crab in this game ;)
yeah, broken by luck I may say !
That's why you should pick up PS3 at launch ;)
Mart I had the same Disc read error after about 4 years of the console running fine. Instead of sending it to Sony's repair center I fixed it myself. This link should help you do the same. PS you have nothing to lose.
Why does the lead character look like such a puss they havent had a cool lead chracters in final fantasy since the ones on PSone, Tidus was a wuss and now this dude
I think this looks great for a PS2 title, but I really don't get the comparison to the next-gen titles. "the sheer impact the visuals hold"? What the hell does that mean exactly? It looks good but it doesn't hold a candle to a game like Oblivion. Not even in the same league. My GF is not into gaming at all and she would actually stop and watch me play Oblivion because she was so intrigued by the graphics. Watching the sun-set off the mountain top in a freaking video game.
Don't get me wrong, I give credit where credit is due and this is a great looking game. Sometimes however I think people just go out of their way to bow down to the "Final Fantasy" label and put it on a pedestal. You could slap "Final Fantasy" on a piece of dog sh1t and people would claim they're eating a belgian chocolate delicasy.
Well, they also mention...
"While it lacks the sort of high-def shininess found in the latest Xbox 360 offerings..."
So you can say just take off the shader stuff and move more towards the polycount on the models, the world created and the hugeness of the environments and the activities happeneing all at once in them. The loading required for all the activities and their technical limitation, the way they are handled and brought about in the day and night models, all can account for what to expect from the graphics system, that equals or marks better than anything shown on the 360 yet.
Remember GTA : San Andreas, the GFX were under what all the other games provide, but infact it was the way they displayed all those actions that the game achived 10/10 in GFX from most of the critics. It only means that you have to play the game to find out for yourself. I just can't wait to play it on the PS3 with anti-aliasing and HD, WOW, as soon as it comes out in Nov. 2006.
You're just sugar-coating a bunch of non-sense to me. I'm assuming you don't have a 360 and probably don't have an HDTV because if you did you certainly wouldn't be busting your nut over the graphics of a 480i, last-gen title. This looks to be a great game but it's strength, in comparison to next-gen titles is certainly not it's graphics.
In a years time once you've become accusomted to playing your next-gen titles on your PS3 you'll probably understand where I'm coming from.
I knew that you're gonna bust out of the shell like every fanboy does, well to mark up more to you I must say just play Colossus on the PS2 and see for yourself if anything of the sort is available in the existing and announced titles of 360 or even the PS3 ! The monster size and its amount of tangibility and interactivity PLUS a seamless world of varying atmospheres and not even a single pop-up in view, Nah, you can't find a single title like that. FF-XII is just another of the sorts !!!
Go now, knock yourself out !
Yes, i'm a "fanboy". Lets see, I own a PS1, PS2, Xbox and Xbox 360. So I've bought every offering of Sony's so far (no interest in handhelds) and every offering of MS so far. I also intend to buy a PS3 and am quite looking forward to FFXIII. So maybe keep the fanboy comments to yourself because by the sounds of it you've never owned an xbox and would probably more suit the title.
edit: Give me this game a year ago and I'd probably be keeling over in excitement as well.
Have raised the limits of the PS2.The old emotion engine is still doing a great job competing with better CPU/GPU. But, if you believe this game looks incredible, find VALKIRE PROFILE 2 SILMERIA screens. THEY LOOK LIKE A 360 game!!!!!!WOW!!!!
I find it funny that all the ff masturbaters keep mentioning this phrase "While it lacks the sort of high-def shininess found in the latest Xbox 360 offerings..." what the f**k ever. I'm mot going to say the game looks like crap but no way in hell is that game moving more polys than Oblivion. and I find it funny that all these haters want to down play the 360. damn the system just came out so its not going to have the most ARTISTIC games. developers haven t had since 2003 to work on the console. when the ps3 comes out idiots are going to make the same stupid azz comments to down play that system. I agree with krimson when he made that dog sh*t comment. final fantasy always seems to get these rave reviews when there r so many better rpg s out there. final fantasy is the sony of rpg s. the have so much public awarness and market share that u will get flamed if u dare say something negative about them. oh and all u babies can get ur bottles from these companies to. I'm pretty sure they got they d**ks out for u.
man this is some dumbsh*t. who compares oldgen with newgen? a dumbazz thats who. yeah its look great for a PS2 GAME. thats the WHOLE bearing of this article. that this looks great as a PS2 game. PS3, Wii or 360 should never have been mentioned in this article
this game blows the socks off when compared to CURRENT GEN TITLES. What the reviewer is saying that the quality of story and other elements are in the proportion to that of the next gen title. Such production values are found only in games like oblivion and other nex gen games. this is being achieved in a current gen game, that's all!!
With out the HD graphics.
Buy the way the graphics look better then Oblivion as far as I am concerned.(Just my opinion so don't chew me out about this.)
360 Fanboys need to shut up and just put their daddy's C*cks back in their mouths.they talk their Sh*t about Games and Hardware they can have or afford. Chauvanistic dumb f*cks
