Revenant Wings picks up right where Final Fantasy XII left off, featuring the same characters and setting as the original, yet playing very differently. Those who didn't play Final Fantasy XII might feel lost at first, as it throws you right into the plot without much explanation, but the story is solid enough on its own that it doesn't demand you play the original. The real time strategy game play is well designed, with fun combat utilizing gambits and interesting scenarios. The 3-D environments look terrific, although the character sprites lack the same flair, and the soundtrack is classic Final Fantasy. Fans of the franchise or RTS games should definitely pick this up.
