Once again, Square Enix has graced us with another installment of the Final Fantasy: Dissidia series. In Duodecim, everything is pretty much the same as it was in the last game. There are some minor differences such as actually having a severely limited 3D exploration and of course, more characters.
The game forces you to play the stories of the new characters before you can do anything else in the game, which is pretty frustrating. The gameplay is still as horrible as it ever was, and an NPC could still dodge your attacks for hours on end if they really wanted to.
If you are a die-hard Final Fantasy Fan, your fan... er, organism might just fangasm over seeing some of your favorite characters in 3D. but simply, as a game; Dissidia features some of the worst gameplay I have ever seen. There is no limit on your dodge, you can block as much as you want, your characters will never become fatigued from jumping up and down like a kid on placebos.
There is no vulnerability or vantage point to exploit, it's just out maneuver the enemy and hope they don't just want to dodge all of your attacks.
Even still the music and visuals are pretty good, but it just can't justify how unappealing the game is - particularly for players who don't like long and pointlessly drawn out cat and mouse games.

this is a little fun i did better than my best friend in this one i made i got to these two guys it was easy to get here but the guy i had to fight was really hard and he was kill way too fast i think the game was cheat tought.
This game could not keep me entertained. It was like playing the 1st game all over again only with the joke characters from Final Fantasy XIII added to the list. I mean seriously... anyone who finds this game amazing... well... its not a complex tactics game, you can just spam buttons, and you either die or you win, there is little strategy to the game.
Sure it has my favorite characters, but really it only has 2 or 3 of my favorites. Where Vincent, Berret, and those crazy guys from Final Fantasy VIII. I mean in all honesty the two greatest final fantasy games without getting into Final Fantasy Tactics are Final Fantasy VII (Crisis Core included) & VIII. They were the only true Final Fantasy games aside from Final Fantasy Chronicles.
Though don't get me wrong if you like to keep yourself occupied while traveling sure this game can be alright, but the PSP wasn't made for traveling. I mean if it was, it would have an LED light. Otherwise your stuck playing in dimly lit places.
