Ah, the Gambit system. Introduced in the original PlayStation 2 version of Final Fantasy XII, it's divided opinion ever since. Some people enjoy what it brings to the table, others think that it takes a lot of the moment-to-moment fun out of battle. Basically, the Gambit system allows you to set up automatic commands and strategies for each individual party member, meaning that once you're engaged in combat, you potentially won't have to press a button while watching your carefully prepared team tear the enemy apart.

If you're still a bit confused, be sure to give the trailer that we've embedded above a watch. It goes over the basics and shows the kind of depth that's on offer.
