Final Fantasy has gone through a variety of battle systems over the years, some of which provide more challenge and strategy than others.
Well well.. the best battle systems is NOT the button mashing one
I'd put the FFX battle engine higher on the list. Would like to see another take on that (that's not a mobile game).
No This sites favorite is not the button mashing one
Final Fantasy Xii battle system is so underrated. I wish it would make a return.
5, 7, 8, 10, 10-2, 13-2 and 7-remake. TCtics was great too didnt like the MMO approach 12 had at all imo.
Really shouldn't use X-2 as an example of the ATB. It had arguably the worst combat system of all, next to XVs. Half of every battle was just watching 2 characters run hugging each other in the middle of the combat area due to multiple characters trying to attack at the same time, and bad pathing.
FFX-2 was actually pretty decent, completely forgot about it. Enjoyed being able to change classes during combat. I did enjoy FFX the most, though.
XII, hats down!
