Final Fantasy Tactics Advance is a game you either love or hate, a bit like Marmite really. In my case I loved FFTA. It's a great twist on the Final Fantasy series, taking it into a completely new style of game. Instead of your usual turn based battle Final Fantasy Tactics Advance boasts a strategy style battle system similar to that of Fire Emblem (also for Gameboy Advance).
The storyline takes you from the small town of St Ivalice, to the world of Ivalice, from reading a magical book. Marche, the main character awakens in this totally new world, apart from his friends Mewt and Ritz. Marche wants to find a way home, but as you fight through countless battles you begin to find that things aren't as straight forward as they seemed.
The main element of the game was the battles, if you liked them the game was great and vice versa. As I mentioned earlier, you travel Ivalice with a clan of people, each having their own unique Job - Along side your clan you take part in strategic battles, moving your characters a few squares at a time.
So if you liked the battles, the game was great and because I did I absolutely loved this
