    With so much to do in the story, without trying to complete the Hunts and side missions, I can have no hesitation in recommending this game to RPG fans.

    A loyal and heartfelt remaster, but no matter how much Square Enix polishes Final Fantasy XII, the company is never going to wear down those occasional bumps that affected the overall package the first time. New RPG systems, rebalanced enemies, UI updates and speed options all boil down to a much smoother, nicer (prettier!) version of the game than the original European release. Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age is a wonderfully nostalgic, but undeniably flawed, return to Ivalice.

    Despite it all, I'd still say Final Fantasy XII is a good game. Its combat is almost entirely automated, but it's designed by you thanks to the programmable Gambit system, while character progression through the job system is deep and open to creativity. Running up to enemies and having the AI fight your battles for you may not sound great, but it is absolutely is. I'd be happy to play another forty hours, but preferably without any more story.

    Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age is an excellent remaster of the classic game. All Xbox One Final Fantasy fans finally get to play the gameFinal Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age is an excellent remaster of the classic game. All Xbox One Final Fantasy fans finally get to play the game with the additions and modifications originally made to the previously Japanese only released International Zodiac Job System version, along with some long awaited changes that brought the 2006 release updated to modern standards. I've loved Final Fantasy XII ever since it originally launched on PS2, but the additions of autosave and map-overlay features were highly appreciated and definitely long overdue. It may be a remaster of a decade old game, but it's a welcomed and well done remaster for Xbox Gamers. Finally, after 14 years, Final Fantasy XII is officially playable on the Xbox One family of consoles. Changes such as adding the OST-quality soundtrack option and allowing for New Game + from the start are noteworthy, but not really earth-shaking. Zodiac Age’s Xbox port also adds “cheat” options in the in-game menu for infinite license points or gil. These are definitely nice options to have and pair well with New Game + if you’re looking for more of a casual or quick run through of the game. Final Fantasy XII's Xbox version is a good port of an excellent game. It's not remarkably different from the original version of the game, but it's remarkably faithful and relatively bug free. It's still a Playstation 2 game at its core, and no amount of cranked up anti-aliasing or fleshing out, but it's still a visually distinct game with great art direction and a stunning localization. I'd highly recommend Xbox Final Fantasy fans check out this remaster of a great classic from Square Enix. Expand
