The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel turned out to be one of the PlayStation 3’s late-great games and certainly one of the best JRPGs to have seen release in recent memory. Its cliff-hanger ending left players clamouring for more however, and with the long translation times for games in this series the wait has been sheer torture.
After the high standards set by Square on the Playstation the expectations were high for a Final Fantasy title on the Playstation 2. Final Fantasy X launched to a wave of hype and manages to push a number of impressive firsts onto the players for the long-running series.
The Final Fantasy series has made something of a name for itself in the business of innovation. Each new numbered entry features a new world, characters and systems that differ from the last title in the main-line series. Final Fantasy VII played things a little safe when the series made the leap to three dimensions and FFVIII sought to strike out in a new direction.
