The battle system is real time just all the new RPG have. You don't need to walk and wait while you engage in the battles like in the previous FF games, and you can cast all the buff spells before the battle meaning it's actually useful to use them unlike in turn basted combats where the battle ends after 2-3 moves. The gambit system helps organize your characters the way you want if you don't like giving commands to everyone and it's useful for creating strategies. In FF XII even something simple like "Quikenings" requires thinking, otherwise you may lose the battle if you'll keep using them.
So what's so weird bout it?
