Anyone heard anything about this? It sounds like its similar to Final Fantasy Tactics - which is one of my wife's favorite games of all time. I'm wondering if I should pick this up for $20...

Release date is 4/20/04.

I hadn't heard anything, no, but it looks interesting. Reminds me more of X-Com than Final Fantasy Tactics, but the setting could be what's throwing me off. The "targetting system" looks a bit iffy (like you actually have to manually target shots ala something like Worms) and the closer you get to being right the more damage you do. That's something that I wouldn't personally go in for, but I don't know how your wife feels about such things.

It does look like a cross of X-com and FFT because of this quote:

"Really leave your mark on a deformable terrain that changes as you destroy it. Blast holes in the wall, make craters out of meadows and send boulders flying like toys. Make a mess! No one will be around to clean it up."

That's what I loved about X-Com (And Freedom Force)

EB is advertising it for $15 for the PS2. I WILL get this. If it's ANYTHING like FFT, I will love it. I've beaten FFT 7 times now, and it never gets boring (I keep Ramza 1 class all the way through the game each time. Next game will be Ninja)

If I'm not mistaken, Front Mission 4 will be released in the near future. It's a PS2 release, but it's Mech/tactics fun.

I found this video of the PS2 version.

I'm just a little worried by the initial $20 price tag. While I think it's a great price, other games that have launched at this price have disappointed me in the past.

The WWE Crush Hour game was ok for $20 though, wasn't it?

If you're looking for something similar to FFT, then it's all about Disgaea, baby. Similar gameplay to FFT, except Disgaea's much deeper and has several extra tactical flourishes. It's also got a funny little storyline that doesn't involve killing Jesus!
