tentang Dissidia : Final Fantasy
who have never heard of Final Fantasy? Square Enix (wiki) have made (i think)14 installations of video games (+lots more spinoffs and sequels and prequels i lost count) and 2 movies and an anime series. Dissidia Final Fantasy is another video game coming out and is one of the most anticipated games of 2009.
the last final fantasy i played was FFX (the one with yuna) and the only FF that i finished is FF9. for FF7 and FF8 i played till the last boss and failed miserably. at one point.. i realized that FF series are almost the same thing all over again.. with updated technical specs and new characters. the characters are awesome i have to admit.. but gameplay wise.. generally still the same.
but Dissidia is different. it is classed as a fighting title.. like tekken i guess. Dissidia is a gathering of FF characters and besides versus mode (i dont know if they made up their own cool term for that), other modes include story mode and pursuit battle that sounds really cool. so now we can play as our favourite characters, Cloud or Tidus or Yuna or whatever, but not like how we used to. no more turn based battles. no more waiting.
reviews from the Japanese release is looking good. they praised the many unlockable contents (100+), the ease of control, graphics (thats not unexpected), cool modes, and well.. lets just say reviewers are smiling and enjoyed the game.
the English version is scheduled to be out in August 2009. wait.. thats this month. cool!
heres a preview (if you're interested to see in game battles) check out this video by GameTrailers.com:
