  IGN: Final Fantasy Tactics Advance Review
Final Fantasy Tactics Advance, produced entirely by Square but published by Nintendo, is a wonderful RPG-based strategy game with an insane amount of depth, replay value and challenge, and a ton of fun if you're willing to put in the investment of thought and time.
Final Fantasy Tactics Advance is not a true Final Fantasy game in the RPG series sense, nor is it a sequel or remake of Final Fantasy Tactics released on the PlayStation system several years ago.
Final Fantasy Tactics Advance does a wonderful job weaning players into the combat engine through two cleverly disguised tutorial missions...once in the real world during a snowball fight, and again in the Final Fantasy world after Marche lets a racial remark slip.

  Final Fantasy Tactics Advance - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Final Fantasy Tactics Advance is the story of Marche (though his name can be changed by the player), Mewt, Ritz, and Doned; four misfit children who live in a small town named St. Ivalice (which shares its name with the setting of the PlayStation predecessor Final Fantasy Tactics).
Final Fantasy Tactics Advance is sometimes called Tactics Advance or just Tactics, though the latter causes confusion with the other game of a similar name Final Fantasy Tactics.
This differs from the old Final Fantasy Tactics job system in which they were able to change their jobs as soon as they achieved a certain level of experience in that particular job.

 Final Fantasy Tactics - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Final Fantasy Tactics (often abbreviated as FFT) is a tactical role-playing video game developed by Squaresoft for the Sony PlayStation.
Combining thematic elements of the Final Fantasy series with a game engine and battle system unlike anything previously seen in the franchise, Final Fantasy Tactics is Square's answer to Quest's successful Ogre Battle / Tactics Ogre series, with which it shares a number of key conceptual and stylistic elements.
Final Fantasy XII is also set in a world called Ivalice.

Yet, the first Final Fantasy game to once again be seen with a Nintendo logo on the packaging, is one completely different and obscure to the usual breed we’ve come to expect.
It’s also notable that while this is technically the sequel to the rather popular Playstation title Final Fantasy Tactics, the storylines are completely unconnected, and while the core of the gameplay is similar, Tactics Advance has been optimized for the move to the handheld screen, and is clearly very technically advanced.
Tactics is a deep game, offering up almost 60 hours of gameplay, but when your half dozen well rounded, hand picked and equipped swordsmen, spellcasters, archers and erm… other assorted races, effectively perform a challenging mission, you’ll feel that lovely warm glow of self achievement.

However, the Final Fantasy series is arguably one of the greatest RPG franchises of all time; and branched out to inspire other franchises within in its universe.
Final Fantasy Tactics for the GBA takes place in a town by the name of Ivalice - a fairly normal (aside from the fact that the children have organized, militia style snowball fights) countryside community.
Overall Final Fantasy Tactics for the GBA finally fills that awful void that was left from the absence of a new Final Fantasy Tactics title.

 GameSpy.com - Review
The original Final Fantasy Tactics was one of the finest games for the PlayStation and one of my personal favorites of all time.
FFTA is very similar to other tactical-RPGs in that the emphasis is on developing characters of various classes and having them partake in hours of turn-based battles on an isometric field.
FFTA will definitely look and feel familiar to fans of the genre, since many of its creators worked on well-known tactical-RPGs like Final Fantasy Tactics, Ogre Battle, and Tactics Ogre.

 Final Fantasy Tactics Advance - GameCritics.com
The combat is simple and the whole 'tactics' something of a misnomer, but the menu system definitely isn't as intuitive as it should be.
While the Final Fantasy brand had become increasingly popular (thanks in no small part to the runaway success of Final Fantasy VII), not even that could lure the average gamer into picking up a strategy role-playing game (RPG).
Finally, since this is a portable game with fights that can take awhile to win, saving is important.

 Gamer's Logik 4.0 - Final Fantasy Tactics Advance Review
FFTA is chock full of enough micromanaging gameplay to suck up a gamer's free time for at least 50 hrs.
FFTA's Ivalice is sort of a melting pot- there are five races that specialize in different things.
FFTA's job building system is simplistic, dropping the original's JP system for a system very reminiscent of that in FFIX.

 Final Fantasy Tactics Advance - GameBoy Advance Review
Everyone who was so enthused by Tactics that they made it the first game on Sony's Greatest Hits list when it hadn't sold the normally required number of copies will be disappointed because it isn't the direct sequel that they wanted.
Also, FFTA incorporates the same type of system of leveling in FFT, where the random enemies are right about 4-5 levels less than the average level of your party, but the bosses are at fixed levels.
The FFTA guys designed the maps so this really wouldn't be a problem, unlike in Disgaea, where you're really hurting for a camera angle shift on some of the randomly generated maps.

 Final Fantasy Tactics Advance (gba: 2003): Reviews
Perhaps the single major flaw that stops Final Fantasy Tactics Advance from scoring a straight 10/10 is it's shop/inventory system.
It not only brings the fun of Final Fantasy Tactics to the GBA, complete with the 40 or so gameplay hours, but manages to improve on the original in many aspects as well in the process.
FFTA may be more a parallel title to the PSone game than a true sequel but that doesn't mean it can't borrow and build upon the original's well-laid foundations, which it does with aplomb.

 Review: Final Fantasy Tactics Advance for Game Boy Advance on Gamepro.com.
For all its portable goodness, Tactics' most impressive achievement is finding a smart way to tell an imaginative story within its nonlinear game structure: This modified Never Ending Story is much more interesting than your usual boring "Soap Opera of Kingdoms X and Y" strategy/RPG plot line.
Final Fantasy Tactics Advance tells the tale of a young boy from Earth who's whisked away to a fantasy world modeled after his favorite video game (Final Fantasy, of course).
As in most other "tactics" games, the battle pacing is a bit slow, and a single turn takes a few more steps than you'd probably like.

In Final Fantasy Tactics Advance you take the primary role of Marche, who first needs to figure out where he is, what’s going on, and most importantly – figure out how the heck he’s going to get back home.
Marche quickly realizes that he’s actually IN the game Final Fantasy, and it seems as if he’ll need to destroy four crystals in order to “turn off” the game world.
Tactics Advance's audio isn’t too bad either, but a few of the background tunes tend to be repeated a whole lot, so it’d be wise not to pay it any notice or else it’ll probably annoy you in the end.
