Battle Systems
« on: November 22, 2010, 02:35:26 AM »
What is your most preferred battle system in the series to date? Please tell me if I forgot any.  For those that don't know which battle system goes to which game:

Traditional Turn-Based - The battle system for Final Fantasy I - III.

Active Time/Dimensional Battle - These are the battle systems for Final Fantasy IV, V, VI, VII, VIII, IX, X-2, and XII. (XII's is Dimensional Battle, I combined the two since they are very similar)

Command Synergy Battle - The battle system for Final Fantasy XIII.

Real Time Battle - The battle systems for the MMOs, Final Fantasy XI and XIV.

Conditional Turn-Based Battle - The battle system for Final Fantasy X and games in the Final Fantasy Tactics series.

I'm actually a fan of the Active Time Battle since it's become almost a Final Fantasy staple. I think I've gotten used to it, Command Synergy comes in second.

I don't really have a straight-forward answer. If I had to say, I would say the Active Time Battle. As stated above, I have just gotten too used to it that it's become one of my favorites over the years.

Active time was my fave, a second would be conditional turn based, i didn't like it in FFX, but i loved it in FFTA and A2

That's actually the standard RTS-style battle system if I'm not mistaken.

Anyway, my favorite was Active Time/Dimension, but I really liked all of them to be honest.

Final Fantasy XIII's battle system has literally made my eyes go  :o! I haven't played it, but I'm looking forward to doing all of those moves. So I voted for the Command Synergy Option. XD

Really like FFXII dimensional based fighting gives a real time to it

A Haven is a place to be safe from harm, There is no Haven where we're going

FFXII's battle system was my favorite.

I have to say, I have grown to love XIII's Command Synergy Battle System very much
