What Happened?

I really like Final Fantasy Tactics Advance for GBA, so you know I was stoked to play A2. Alright, I get about 3 hours in and decided I want to do some side quest stuff. This is where my main problem lies. The combat system is depressingly flawed. I understand they want to make a game challenging, but making it unplayable is a huge mistake. Slow and Haste skills are incredibly out of proportion, and a magic attack should be incredibly stronger than a physical attack but take longer until that target can move again. The game lost its momentum from its origins and the story line is surprisingly predictive and unoriginal. The main hero in the story is a brat who escapes to another dimension and tries to find his way back. I give it a depressing score for a depressing game.

THIS GAME IS AWSOME!!!!!!!!the stragies have to came fast and naturally or else you lose. nice plot twists, too. my only compliant is that some of the emimes you encounter are too hard to beat.
this issue is hard too deal with near the middle to end of the game. some enemies are just, plain cheep. take ghosts, for instance. when you "kill" them, they recover full health in three turns time. this is only a minor complaint, and i enjoy the game overall.

Fun but short

It was fun to play but the main story went by too fast. There's still missions to do post game and all but compared to the first game the story was really short.

The game is really easy to learn, even if you've never played FFT before. Highly suggest this game.
