Summary: I've never played a ff game before, but all my friends recommended playing.
I've watched them play, and the games are generally absolutely fascinating, but
this one frustrated me. i finally worked my way out of the cave, got out of the
first village, found my friend and got Cid's permission to take his transport,
and STILL with no save point??? STILL no way to save???
Summary: Boring environments and Samey dungeons. Boring characters and story that just doesn't cut it by today's standards. Tedious level-upping just to not get kaned by the bosses. No save points in dungeons. Quicksave function is awful, you cannot re-use it to return to a point in the game (if you were to get killed for exampel). Why so cruel? The remake should have made the game better, NOT just translated the graphics to 3D.
Summary: As mentioned by a previous reviewer, this game is full of promise (being a remake of a previously well-accepted title), but fails to deliver. It's actually, disappointingly, a quite weak RPG for the DS, as the competition is stiff with the wide range of choice having sprung up over the last five years, for both the DS and GBA.
Pros: Classic FF combat, monsters, etc.
Cons: Difficult to get engrossed in. Game glitches. Weak graphics.
Excerpt: "I did not enjoy this game at all! I found the music incredibly annoying, the gameplay boring and the graphics bland. I played for about five minutes before having to turn it off and get back to another game! I have never played the other FF games before, so I could put it down to just not being used to the game's style but I cannot see how anyone could find walking around and having boring fights with funny-looking creatures entertaining! I'd suggest ...
Excerpt: "...begin with Im a huge Final Fantasy fan so the series is something I'm quite experienced with. Final Fantasy III (3) is a remake of an old game in the 90s. The remake brings a whole new system to the game with the inclusion of 3D graphics and of course, the DS touch screen. But is it any good? Plot 3/10 Whats it about?! I really couldn't tell you, that is to say it has very little plot. This is a shame because the FF series is reknowned for their ...
Pros: Music, gameplay, job system, quite cheap now
Cons: No plot, gets boring very quickly, not good for a FF game
