  • Dissidia Final Fantasy review for the PSP

  • If youre a Final Fantasy fan then youll be chewing your arm off to play Dissidia: Final Fantasy.

  • Of course, don’t do that because youll have trouble playing it on your PSP.

  • In a move similar to Super Smash Bros paying fan service to Nintendo junkies,

  • Square Enix have taken a whole host of characters from most of their Final Fantasy games

  • and put them into a fighting arena where they can battle each other one on one and earn tonnes of collectables.

  • Tidus, Cloud, Cecil, Sephiroth and others all appear in the ultimate battle between good and evil.

  • It seems the gods of Cosmos and Chaos have had a bit of a falling out and Chaos is winning.

  • So, in story mode you play through a number oflevelsplaying as a key Final Fantasy character

  • on a sort of board game, choosing where to go and what to fight.

  • Battles are fought in real-time in 3D arenas as you attempt to steal bravery points from your opponents.

  • The more you steal, the harder your attacks.

  • You can also pick up a special item that lets you do a super move and often it’s a race to who can get to it first.

  • Combat is fun and slick but sometimes the camera points the wrong way

  • and when you try to lock onto an opponent,

  • sometimes you end up locking onto special items and facing the wrong way instead.

  • The story of each character’s destiny isn’t great either.

  • For a series that prides itself in involving stories,

  • it’s a bit disappointing to have some hammy voice acting and boring plot lines at times.

  • Still, if youre into Final Fantasy there’s all the role-playing elements of

  • finding and equipping weapons and items and tonnes and tonnes of collectables

  • from extra playable characters to voice samples.

  • There’s also enough gameplay here and more modes to keep you playing if youre unfamiliar with the series.

  • Dissidia: Final Fantasy gets an excellent 8 out of 10.
