It's not out yet. Hasn't even hit the tubes yet.

I'm not terribly hopeful though.

Edit: As I typed that, it hit the tubes.

I'm taking a break from it right now. I like it, but I liked TA alot so I'm somewhat biased. The judge system is different and if you break a law it acts more like a Jagd, but the little details make it a bit easier (like giving you a chart of what item can be used with what class).

If you liked Tactics Advance, you should like A2 just fine. :) I haven't played it in English yet, but I picked it up when I was in Japan and have enjoyed it so far despite being distracted by many other games.

My only issue so far is that getting new weapons seems to be a really tedious process unless I've lost something in translation.

No, it is kind of hard to get new weapons, I played for five hours before my mages learned any new spells. But you can sort of counter act that by switch jobs and learning other skills. I also don't care for the fixed laws and I miss the card system. But other than that I really like the game

At least the laws don't have horrible consequences this time. I rather like the judge bonuses, though!

Wanted to, but there's a severe lack of Scott Weliand in FFT:A2. Guitar Hero: Aerosmith does not have that problem. And how much is this game going for...FORTY BUCKS? Sheesh, I've paid a combine amount of 15 bucks for the other 3 games (5 for Tactics for the ps1, 10 for Tactics Advance and FFT: war of the lions was a gift), so yeah, I'll sit this dance out for a while. That and FF4 drops next month, so yeah, proerities.

I just got it, love it, it fixed all the parts that made FFTA sub par and ended up being a great game all around. I do agree with RaaBee though, it can be hard to get new weapons. Took me TWELVE hours to get ONE new staff, but I get greatswords and broadswords up the wazoo. Thankfully I also get lots of spears too, and dragoons still rock hard.

Haven't found any of Seeqs or Griers yet, and the only new class I got was Green Mage, but thats like, your first mission, almost.

Cid looks like a douchebag. Seriously, he looks like his name should be Esteban Sh*thead, and least his personality is alright.

I picked it up Friday night, and I'm about 25 hours in right now. My only quams are with the job system and the bazaar. I prefered the job levels requirment over having to know a set nuber of action abilities to change to a certain job, which leads to the bazaar. I've gotten 1 black mage staff, and 2 white mage staffs. Opposed to the tons of swords. Overall it's pretty fun though. The new law system is much better. I've only had a problem with one of the laws that seems to have multiple meanings without saying so. I wouldn't really consider it a spoiler, but if you don't want to know it don't read it.

The "Targeting Distant Unit" law seems to be broken if you knock someone back a space for some reason.
