    With a story that would be considered nothing special, FFXII shines with its fast-paced combat and challenging difficulty. Although it introduces many changes to the series, it provides a good amount of things to explore providing hours of fun.

    Do not spend your money on this game until/unless they sort out the 720p lock. 720p is not acceptable! No graphics options, no AA, AF or basicDo not spend your money on this game until/unless they sort out the 720p lock. 720p is not acceptable! No graphics options, no AA, AF or basic options. I loaded it up and just searched for basic settings. No exit button in the game menu, just an escape to exit. This game is the single worst port i've ever had the misfortune of opening up on steam and then closing down in disgust. Square Enix should be ashamed that they had the balls to charge for this crap!
