Dissidia: Final Fantasy is here and the game doesn’t leave you short. This PSP game is of the fighting genre which consists of good and bad characters from a whole bunch of Final Fantasy games and forms them into an alliance – Cosmos vs. Chaos. The game does an excellent job with the battle system. When I played it, I understood it in no time and was not button mashing like I do in some other fighting games. The characters in Dissidea: Final Fantasy all have their weapons, skills, and techniques. The maps are are very creative and Ad Hoc mode is available, but no online. If you are expecting a in depth story mode like in most other Final Fantasy games, don’t get your hopes up. The story mode isn’t what makes this game special; it is the addicting battle system that keeps the game together makes it succesful. If you don’t believe me, you can try the demo from the playstion store. I am glad Square Enix went on a different path and they have done a great job.

Guess what? FFXIII will be coming out this Decemeber. I can’t belive Square Enix presented just a great news. The question is how they pulled this off in such a short amount of time?
Answer: They didn’t
Verdict: APRIL FOOLS!
