Bravely Default (3DS)
7 September 2014
Excerpt: Bravely Default is the spiritual successor to Square Enix's Final Fantasy: The Four Heroes of Light . It takes many of the enhancements of that game and steps them up a notch. Both the job and battle systems have been revamped and work really well. The 3D effects are the best I have seen to date on the 3DS. Many 3DS features are used including Augmented Reality for the intro and the gyroscope to reveal a teaser for the sequel.
Pros: Fun battle and job class system; loveable characters; excellent music and 3D graphics
Cons: Micro-transaction support; repetitive story; game crashes
Excerpt: Bravely Default is a new JRPG title from Square Enix. The title was originally released in Japan with only a Western based audience in mind, which could explain a lot of the quirkiness in the game, but the positive reception the game received around the world led to a release in North America last month.
Excerpt: 73 hours into Bravely Default and I have more questions than I have answers. Not about the battle system, it’s an elegant affair with plenty of flexibility to let you either prevail or hang yourself. Not about the story, something about crystals and renewing them many, many times. No, my questions all revolve around one thing and one thing only: what job goes best with what job. I don’t play a lot of Japanese role playing games.
Excerpt: Bravely Default is a game with a weird name, but an extremely familiar taste. Like an old, familiar shirt that you used to love back in the day, but put away because you wore it so much that the seams began coming loose and you didn't want to tear it into tatters. Bravely Default is a new name for a game series that literally everyone knew about, and almost as many loved...Final Fantasy.
Summary: won’t win anyone that hasn’t been a fan of RPGs over. It brings the best and worst of RPGs to the table. Gamers that will love this game are the ones that grew up on RPGs and can remember the Super Nintendo titles. What they’ll find here is a game that is great to play from beginning to end, with strong characters and an enjoyable combat system.
Excerpt: In my early gaming days, the SNES and PlayStation iterations of Final Fantasy were the pinnacle of role playing greatness. While Tidus, Yuna, and the rest of the PS2 crew holds a special place in my heart, there was nothing like making not one, but three PSOne motors burn out due to marathons collecting materia, junctioning spells, treasure hunting with chocobos, juggling classes, and watching a sadistic clown take over the world.
