Final Fantasy XII' is a real FF with all that goes with it. The tension in the story continues throughout the game. The comrades-in-arms are typically FF different characters with their own ideas and motives. I particularly like this mixture here and...
make for additional excitement in the group. The player can determine his team (from an advanced point in time) himself. So he can rotate the leader and player as he likes or simply alternate with 2 groups. The professions or licenses, on the other hand, are fixed once chosen. There are no more respec possibilities. However, you can learn a second profession later in the game. As so often, a mixture of close combat, ranged combat and magician makes the team mobile for almost all possibilities. The combat system is a mixture of rounds and real time. This makes it look very fluid and pleasing. However, the game world is divided into short sections, which results in only a short loading time. The fact that you have to unlock a license for new armor and spells is unusual but not impossible to understand.
Graphically the game looks rather old despite remake. FF10 is clearly better off, but the 12 is better than the 9, but the game is not obsolete anyway. The 'new' Music adapts very well to the game and convinces. If you are looking for a Final Fantasy, you will find one in this title. I personally play the parts from the optically better FF's, like the 7. even if you can argue about it, I like FF XII much more than the newer Lighning Returns or X-2.
