If you’ve ever been a fan of Final Fantasy Tactics then you may want to check out the newly released Ecol Tactics. The browser-based strategy takes its inspiration from classic tactical role-playing games, offering turn-based party combat while giving players access to several characters classes (at once) who all add their own independent attacks and combos. Taking that nostalgic feeling a step further, the game also features a progressive story found in many similar gameboy titles in years past.

The open beta is now live and you need only sign up for it by visiting the game’s official site.

    You will regret wasting your life playing this game. Trust me.

    this game was fun as hilarous at 1st, once you hit a certain level, it drops in value, laggy as hell, bad customers tactics, stupid cash shop , pay to win game.

    This game far more interesting than I thought. So does Age of Wushu. The stunning scenes with special effects are vert eye-catching. Huge world map is also interesting.

    I love games like this but honestly this ones a real dissapointment, I’d still prefer Wakfu online if its a tactical MMORPG than this thing even if Wakfu is just using one character, it develops more strategy than this game.

      but unlike wakfu you do not need membership to do almost everything in the game. i was really shocked when i spotted that you need membership to do everything in wakfu :l

      • Cantus on April 6, 2013

        You can still play the game without membership but its just very very restricted on free players. your not restricted from everything as a free player, so there as some parts that you can try out for free. But ultimately I find that paying for membership is worth it, and its way way better than ecoltactics eventhough its free, thats the only thing is see better….just the fact that its free doesn’t make it a better game, in fact just play the single player console RPGs is better cuz ecoltactics does the same except with a whole slower pace.

          I have 7-8 toons level capped in wakfu, there is little to no tactics involved bad customer service and content updates arent done well at all. Now i can say the game is all bad since i played it from early betas till about a month ago, but wakfu suffers from a SEVERE lack of content literally the only thing to do endgame is sit around and wait for a duel (theres no rewarding pvp) do a once a week boss to try and get gear that already has 1000 copies duped, and grind alts. The graphic style and gameplay of wakfu does win even though there is little to no need for strategy when I spam one skill and kill you in 1-3 turns.

            i bet ur using an iop class mayb, that class requires no strategy at all and probably the easiest and most powerful class in the game, i think some other class have some strategies i think but not as strong as iops. yay iops 😀

    Jesus it looks like they used Endless Online graphics…
    That brings back some memories

    This game is one of the biggest disappointments I’ve had lately. I loved FFT (In fact in game I snatched the name RazmaBeoulve as well as Orlandu), but this game sucks.

    The tactics are slim, the classes are few and of course there’s the whole pay to win aspect.

    Replaying FFT or Disgaea would serve you better than playing this.

    i think the head of mmo already knew that people wont like this, yet they want to try it out because its becoming more popular now. But this style of game play with this type of system is 1990’s at most. Honestly, that game will fail again but hopefully next game type like this gets a huge update.

  10. fakfejs on April 6, 2013

    i played it for exacly 2 hours … game is slow as hell, boring as hilary clinton and so much pay 2 win. It willl close in 1 year

  11. Arieswar on April 5, 2013

    I think its quite okay.
    it has humor however it might be pay to win..
    Since the mercenaries need store items to actually level.

    And its browser based no download needed.

    • mhm on April 5, 2013

      It’s pay to win. You need to pay to unlock character slots, to upgrade your gear, and to have more than eight inventory slots. Don’t get me wrong, it’s pretty sweet for a browser game, but you’re going to be forced to dump money into it if you want to play it for longer than a few days.

  12. iluvgamez on April 5, 2013

    Hmmm…I like games like this but not this one. If u played FF Tactics bevor or any other Tactics game u will just uninstall this in a few minutes. The graphics are like Game Boy Advance standart. I can understand, that devs wanna get as many people as possible to play their game and try to make it playable even with a Pentium1 with 90mhz but ffs. This game is just a waste of my PC power. I wouldnt mind that but this game aint fun so it fails in every possible way.
    It already did shut down anywhere else?Welll,nothing more to say about it i guess.

  13. Green5570 on April 5, 2013

    Nice game,for kids ^^ …

  14. dragon on April 5, 2013

    Is there any other classes u can be but captian???

  15. Jooq on April 5, 2013

    Characters are same as in Ragnarok online? Haircuts, models..

  16. wakawaka on April 5, 2013

    I can already see why this game failed. Instead of having to rely on terrain and character placement for defense and advantage, you have to do it for attacks. Seems horribly lame.

  17. Araragi-san on April 5, 2013

    If this game failed at asia then there is high chance that the same will happen here.

  18. Kawaiido on April 5, 2013

    This game shut down in its home country, so I wouldn’t get too invested or spend ANY money on it if I were you.

  19. Mgamer on April 5, 2013

    i got fire emblem: awakening dont need to play this game anymore.

  20. tidycatt666 on April 5, 2013

    Oh yay. I actually wanted to play this. Looks so much like FF Tactics.

    • Marlblanke on April 5, 2013

      If you go into ecol tactics expecting a FF:T clone you’re going to be sorely disappointed.

      • Rockmeo on April 6, 2013
