Dissidia is Latin for "fan-service", which could hardly be more apt for this Final Fantasy beat-em-up fan-favourite fest.
It is currently available from Tesco Entertainment for just £7; with the next best price coming in at £12.61 from Base, you stand to save over a fiver at least, compared to buying elsewhere.
In the land of Dissidia, two opposed forces Cosmos, Goddess of Harmony and Chaos, God of Discord are constantly at war with their help of their chosen champions. As Chaos starts to gain the upper hand, the player must choose whether to fight for the side of light or dark as the past heroes and villains from the Final Fantasy series all meet in one game for the sake of the fate of the world.
It's a great little game that goes above and beyond the call of fan-service duty and is accessible and enjoyable for those who don't even know their buster sword from their gunblade. It's a great looking game, a lot of fun to play and different from your average fighter. That said it has a pretty naff storyline, a frustrating camera and some dodgy voice acting.
Dissidia: Final Fantasy is definitely more than worth the £7 price tag though, with exciting battles and tonnes of unlockable content and rewards to nab and loads of different modes to try out. It kinda seems a shame to me to take these legends of Final Fantasy taken out of their, errr, natural environments but thankfully the game is decent enough that this is not an issue.
