IGN's Final Fantasy XII: Revenant Wings review - Another impressive DS epic

Final Fantasy XII: Revenant Wings isn't some blockbuster epic of a game that'll rocket the DS RPG genre into legendary status. If you're looking for the traditional FF experience, you'll find that with XII on PS2. What Revenant Wings offers, however, is the next step in the story, complete with some inspiring music, beautiful visuals, impressive CGI, and some innovative RTS-like gameplay.

IGN have got a few gripes with the design, as units will often bunch together, enemy AI still isn't too bright, and the linear feel makes it easy to stock up on units and then run your blob of fighters from beginning to end with little challenge – at least during the first half of the game – but as an overall product Revenant Wings is nothing short of impressive. There are tons of side quests and hunts in the game, a huge amount of RPG depth in items, equipment, and skills, and an overwhelming amount of fan service for those that can't get enough from the FFXII world.

Overall score: 8.3/10

The story is too old to be commented.

Another DS game that's basically better than every PSP game. No surprise for me.

The only decent game on n-ds is children of mana but the graphics suck bad its just a modified gba with two screens and i already have one.
the touch screen is useless too, what was nintendo thining when they added that no wonder PSP destroys it sale-wise.

ff12 is actually really good for teh on chapter 2 now...

i must say, its not as hard or involving as other F games, but its perfect for a handheld game...lots of short bursts which is what gaming on teh go should be
