  1. A good game, but it fails to distinguish itself enough from it’s 1997 cousin. Same character models, same environments, same battle engine, same items, same weapons, same spells...there’s something to be said for consistency, but I feel Tactics Ogre needed to expand on the idea a little more, not just carbon-copy it.

It's hard not to compare it with Final Fantasy Tactics Advance as the two share strikingly similar visuals.
    The recruiting system is also quite interesting and class systems require certain accomplishments of the unit to qualify.

The gameplay is very unique and has a lot of strategy elements in it: terrain, elements, different classes, weather, etc. The story is also very interesting which is consistent with the Tactics Ogre franchise. Difficulty wise, i think the game is fair - until you spend a lot of time grinding in the training mode which can be repeated infinitely - then the game becomes a cakewalk. The game also allows the player to pick different routes which lead to alternate endings which increases the game's replayability. I have recently purchased the Tactics Ogre game for PSP, which is a remake of the original because of my love for this game. I am sad that these type of games don't have a much of a place on consoles anymore because of a niche market - but I am happy that Atlus continues to develop these games. (Overall 9+ - battle is a bit slow paced, animations are a bit slow) Full Review »
