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.

    Great game. It wasn't attractive at first with the courage points and one set of combos/attacks for a button and a direction, but after aGreat game. It wasn't attractive at first with the courage points and one set of combos/attacks for a button and a direction, but after a while, I could not stop playing. I mean I got to level 100 with Cloud, Squall, and Sephiroth within a month, and every round I would always aim for 9999 courage points, and then attack (now I realize it was really nonstrategic). The game feels amazing balanced, the game-play itself is smooth (ex. dodging, moving, etc.) and I love the EX mode where the characters do amazing finishers. Expand

That attack, defense, item and run, that conquered our hearts in the past, comes totally anew in Dissidia: Battles are way more dynamic as it is (Even comparing to Crisis Core), the plot is really enjoyable, providing cutscenes, and the graphics are stunning for the PSP platform.
    The only thing I got to complain about the game is that battles are always 1vs1. You'll never face two or more enemies at once. But, anyway, this don't take of the greatness of Dissidia, a must-have game for PSP owners.

You can't really play with out a The games fights are dynamic and very much skill based as they are equipment and abilities based. You can't really play with out a complete combination of all these together. There are so many fighting styles in this that I can't even start to touch on them. The story mode is board based that leads to each fight. Some fights have conditions to meet to get bonuses for when you complete the board. You can start a fight and finish the enemy in one combo or 50 moves later with no one hurt. Its all based on skill and position really. I love it and give this game 2 thumbs freaking way up. The cut scenes are also top notch. Expand

It's just really addictive and enjoyable, I mean who wouldn't not want to play as all the FF characters in this awesome RPG. When I first played this game it got hard to understand and how to purchase equipment and items. I looked up so much about this game I spend ages trying to get one thing by battling through many enemies which is still fun now. I've spent over 300 hours on this game and still aren't bored of it at all and I can almost beat anyone for sure its fun! If you got a PSP pick this game up and give it a go! Expand

Five major points to talk so it's a simplified version, GRAPHICS: slick nice damn good for a PSP. MUSIC: Nice, especially the Chaos version of the fanfare. GAMEPLAY: Can be repetitive at times but redeems itself with the fast pace action and random button mashing (which is good in this case). CHARACTERS/PLOT: Well, they're Final Fantasy characters so I have my own opinion on certain characters... well, it's a solid cast and plot. REPLAYABILITY: This is my concern point, after finishing every single quest possible for the game... I don't feel compel to replay it, maybe it became tedious after a while... maybe... well, it's still a decent game to own as a self-proclaimed hardcore FF fan. Expand

Pasamos del clasico FF de lucha por turnos dondeDespues de jugar un tiempo a este juego debo decir que es decepcionante y no lo recomiendo. 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.
