Reigning from distant realms, the two gods had gathered warriors from all lands to lead them in savage war. Cosmos and Chaos were of equal strength. It was believed the conflict would last forever. However, the balance is now broken. Those who answered Chaos's call created an inexhaustible force. And under vicious attack without relent, the warriors fighting for Cosmos started to fall one by one. The conflict that has continued for eons is now about to end in Chaos's favor. The world has been torn asunder, sinking into a vortex of disorder. As for the few surviving warriors… their fates have yet to be determined. All-new battle system: Action-based battle system combines all-out brawling alongside RPG-based character development in an original system developed by the creators of the KINGDOM HEARTS series. Ultimate cast of characters: Fan-favorite heroes and villains from the entire FINAL FANTASY series come together in one game for the first time in a remarkable new tale with fully-voiced CG movies and real-time events. Fantasy match: Players select their favorite FINAL FANTASY characters, sided with either Cosmos or Chaos, to set the stage for their fantasy match. Series staple battle features: Accessible through “EX Burst”, players can experience gameplay faithful to the originals through memorable battle features such as "Limit Break" and "Overdrive". In addition, longtime fans of the series can enjoy the ability to summon Aeons and options such as the “command battle” system. Community: Continue the experience by trading Friend Cards, creating items and sharing AI characters with other players and even engage in virtual AI battles made possible by the PSP system ad hoc mode.

  1. Dissidia: Final Fantasy manages to marry at least two completely disparate genres into one of the best games of the year. Not only is it exciting and full of fast-paced action, but it's also deep and full of replay value.
  2. The single most comprehensive offering we've ever had the pleasure to play on PSP, Final Fantasy: Dissidia is an absolute gem, a masterpiece of Japanese ingenuity on the maligned handheld format that makes "epics" on the PS3, 360 and PC hide in shame.

    This game is a touching tribute to the franchise and a great reward for devoted fans.
  4. Overall A challenging fighter that shows off the PSP's power. Slightly intimidating for non-fans, though.
  5. In spite of nagging camera problems and an intimidatingly complicated battle system, Dissidia is an outstanding fighter that does a fantastic job of giving Final Fantasy fans exactly what they want.
  6. Any Final Fantasy fan will feel right at home here, and those who are somehow unfamiliar with the series will find an amazing title on their hands when they emerge from cryogenic freezing.
  7. It seems that any time Square Enix tries to prove to the world that they can make more than super awesome RPGs, they underwhelm.

    I must admit I am pleasantly surprised. A game like this from Square Enix cannot be good can it? I bought it for the 3D renderings of my I must admit I am pleasantly surprised. A game like this from Square Enix cannot be good can it? I bought it for the 3D renderings of my favorite chars and the awesome re arranged sound track. I really didnt expect it to be that enjoyable. It turns out that its simple formula is quite clever. There are lots of things you can do and lots of rewards and items. The story is really simple for a Final Fantasy title but weaving together a story for all the main characters and bosses of each game is really hard as well as coming up with personalities for characters from the 8bit and 16bit eras. Not to mention this is a borderline fighting game and for a fighting game this has the best story telling on all levels. I recommend it to anyone with a PSP. Expand

I think the combat system, once you get your head round it is a lot of fun. The graphics are top notch and as long as you don't pay much attention to the rather lacklustre plot and treat it as a novel fighting game you won't be dissappointed. With time this has become probably my favorite game for the PSP Expand

Pasamos del clasico FF de lucha por turnos donde se requeria estrategia y hacer algo fuera de lugar en mal momento nos costaba tener que cargar partida a un juego donde basicamente gana el que mas rapido machaque los botones. Cuando juego un RPG busco mejorar mi personaje, darle una historia y en definitiva hacer de un escualido personaje inicial un guerrero fuerte en un avance progresivo del juego, es decir, que los enemigos se vuelvan mas duros conforme yo lo haga manteniendo siempre asi un equilibrio y batallas intensas. Cuando jugue FF: Dissidia por primera vez me tentaba la idea de un FF distinto y lo de los combates que esta vez no son por turnos y no tarde en darme cuenta de mi error.

    El juego se convierte en repetitivo hasta decir basta y no ofrece mecanicas nuevas mas halla de machacar los botones en el mismo combo una y otra y otra vez haciendolo aburrido al largo tiempo. Ademas el juego no te presenta una historia clara simplemente coloca a todos los personajes de los anteriores FF y ale maravillas todos en un mundo de un sueño para luchar contra el "mal" y punto sin ningun tipo de explicacion y te dan subtramas que son igual de aburridas que el juego en si.

    Como he dicho antes busco un avance progresivo cosa que este juego se pasa por sus partes nobles, simplemente pasamos de luchar contra un enemigo insultantemente facil a otro que nos da una soberana paliza una y otra y otra vez pero lo peor es que cuando consigues de casualidad vencer a estos enemigos omnipotentes la recompensa no esta acorde con lo que a costado matarlo, te dan una cosa que es incluso peor que lo que actualmente llevas y te decepciona asi que terminas optando por evitar los combates con estos enemigos pues no te reportan beneficio mas halla de una poca experiencia extra.

    Otros fallos que e encontrado es la camara la cual en mapas como pandemoniun te deja vendido al intentar esquivar un ataque de persecuccion enfocando una pared dejandote una vision total de 0. Ademas la poca historia que tiene el juego es tan irrelevante que puedes ir directamente a por el boss final despues de hacer la primera odisea.

    En definitiva este juego deja mucho que desear y no lo recomiendo, saldria mucho mas rentable adquirir cualquier otro juego de la saga.
