Strategy RPG of the Year: Handheld - Final Fantasy Tactics A2
It was a close race between Final Fantasy Tactics A2 and Yggdra Union. One is the sequel of a fantastic game that added upon its predecessor's depth and quality with new races, new items, new jobs, and new characters. The other is an innovative and refrshing take on grid based SRPG combat with emphasis towards character placement, frugal and efficient use of items, and unit management. Either one of these are strong contenders for best SRPG of the year, but we gave the nod to Final Fantasy Tactics A2, which gives players a bevy of options, freedom to pursue the missions in the order they choose, and the near-perfect job system. Sure, the story could be better, but when the gameplay is this good, all is forgiven.
