Product Description

From Amazon

How do you follow up one of the most ambitious, anticipated, and successful video games of all time? With an equally ambitious game that has a unique look and feel, but remains true to its lineage. This is the story behind Final Fantasy Tactics, the new Sony Playstation game from Squaresoft. Following the epic role-playing game Final Fantasy VII, Final Fantasy Tactics focuses more on battles and strategies for winning them. This book, which is far more engaging than your average all-text strategy guide, can help you master each of the game's 70 battle maps, which are depicted in several full-color screen shots. Before getting into that, however, the guide goes to great lengths to explain the game's incredible depth and the many intricacies you'll have to learn in order to be successful. The latter portion of the book explains the differences between the game's 20 different job classes and provides a wealth of statistics on the many weapons and creatures that come into play. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.


The 50-Year War is Over, but the Real Battle Has Just Begun!

3.0 out of 5 stars Not exactly the Great White Hope... Nov. 25 2002
Final Fantasy Tactics is a game where you have to use tactics. You have to THINK. You can't expect a book to do your thinking for you. The guide's strategies are a joke anyway.
WHat is usefule, however, is some of the job descriptions and the other million details you want for a perfect file. However, be warned--there are many inaccuracies and errors. Besides, you usually find better information on the net anyhow.
Buy it if you're a die-hard FFT fan, too dumb to think of a good strategy, too lazy to bother yourself to think, or don't have internet access (then why are you here? hmm...). Otherwise, you don't really need color maps and fancy fonts, now do you?

5.0 out of 5 stars I don't know what you fools are talking about... Jan. 28 2002
...because I think that the strategy guide is quite useful. You would have to be a buffoon to need actual STRATEGIES to win the battles - this is not the intended purpose. However, knowing that the marquis has an entire complement of Genji armor, which otherwise cannot be found, makes the gaming experience much more enjoyable. Also, knowing WHERE to find Cloud's materia blade, without which he cannot perform any special attacks, is quite nice. I guess I COULD complain that Square put these things into the game in order to get us to buy strategy guides, but hey, that's not a complaint against the GUIDE, right?
All in all, I found the guide useful, and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to get everything possible out of the game. However, if you need the guide simply to get through the battles, well, maybe you should switch to another game, like Candy Land.

2.0 out of 5 stars It has pictures! Does that help!? Nov. 25 2001
Yes Pictures! The only thing this guide has thats worthwhile. They have battle maps (what the hell for!?) and I really don't know why. The strategies for all 70 battles are very dumb. That final battle strategy isn't even a strategy! The strategy in the guide focuses more on your defense rather than offense. Making this guide almost a waste of time. Why give it 2 stars instead of one? Well it did describe the job classes really well, but with its errors and tendancy to make me ask "what the *explicit deleted*" I just couldn't go along with this for long. Being that the game IS Final Fantasy Tatics and all I really can't recomend a guide because the game is straight forward. Why? This guide has no secrets at all! Nothing! The only good strategy is the first battle. Other than that this is a poor excuse for a guide.

3.0 out of 5 stars Useful, yet inaccurate! Sept. 2 2001
I wouldn't argue that this book is very useful. Without it, it will take me a lot longer to finish the game. However, I found that there are many mistakes. For example, the number of units to be used in each battle, the number of teams. The battle map inaccurately display the location of item just because it misplaces the x and y coordinated. Many information I needed cannot be found in this book. Comparing with other strategy guides I have read, this book is the least organized.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stapler, you're not kidding! Oct. 31 2000
This is a great strategy guide with full-color, detailed maps for every battle. There are minor spelling mistakes and translation errors, but that is expected with every strategy guide. In all my years of role playing, I've never come across a guide that is 100% accurate. The biggest problem is the binding for this book is terrible. The book will fall apart in no time, but it's still worth it. It's nothing a little tape won't take care of. Gea!
