Game description: Final Fantasy XII is a console role-playing video game developed and published by Square Enix for the PlayStation 2. Released in 2006, it is the twelfth title in the main Final Fantasy series and the last in the series to be released exclusively on the PS2 (not including the expansion sets to FFXI which all got released on PS2 and Final Fantasy 7: Dirge of Cerebus). The game introduced several innovations to the series: battles occur without a transition to a separate screen; a customizable "gambit" system automatically controls the actions of characters; and a "license" system determines which abilities and equipment are used by characters.

Europe v02.00(14/06/2004), Recommended, FPS drops when near Wendigoes and large groups of enemies. The only enemies I have yet to face are the Hell Wyrm and Yiazmat. Run it in Native because upscaling any higher causes tremendous lag on the Menus and during most battles., PCSX2 crashes when accepting hunt 28 directly after accepting hunt 13. Not sure if this is specific to my ISO, so more testing needs to be done in regard to that.

USA v01.60 (07/02/2002), On initial load before scene on screen is shown, sound is choppy. Fine afterwards unless you have a lesser powered machine and then it can get choppy on every area change., All Famfrit and Phoenix boss fights have bad shadows in hardware mode.

Known Issues

Corrupted Overwritten save data

  • Status: Active
  • Type: Serious
  • Description: Attempting to overwrite previous saved games will cause the new file to be corrupted.
  • Workaround: This appears to be an issue with the experimental folder memory card system. Either use a file-based memory card or delete the previous savegame file you wish to overwrite before saving.

Shadows not displaying correctly

  • Status: Active
  • Type: Minor
  • Description: Some shadows are incorrectly shaped and in the wrong place.
  • Workaround: Switch to software rendering mode.
