Developer: Zed Two
Publisher: JoWood


Gorgeous animation blends with turn-based tactical RPG action in JoWooD's vivid PS2 offering.

In the not-too-distant future, Earth is beset by a race of extra-dimensional critters with advanced technology and limited intelligence who are threatening all of mankind.

Humanity is forced to the fringes of a new world, gathering in enclaves and reverting to nomadic lifestyles, and formulates an attempt to strike back. Sadly, they soon discover that the enemy will not be easy to overcome....

Future Tactics offers up a fresh look at turn-based tactical RPGs, combining many popular elements with gorgeous graphics and a powerful game engine.

Taking command of Low, his younger sister Pepper, and a rag-tag band of fighters, you must combine their different skills and abilities to face the encroaching extra-dimensional threat. Brought to life by fully animated and voice acted cut scenes, the storyline takes you through 19 fully deformable 3D environments. Weapons leave battlefield damage and craters in their wake.

Featuring 18 playable characters, each configurable to your own tastes thanks to an experience points system, strong AI and destructible terrains, Future Tactics is one of the strongest tactical offerings on PS2.
