Great remake of the classic NES title

  • Summary: I have played the original NES title (on a emulator ^_^), and it was pretty good, so I bought the NDS remake of it a little while back and here's my opinion about the game. The graphics are greater than I thought it would be at first glance at the box. The battles are traditional Final Fantasy turnbased.

strait foreward storyline to start a more complexly developoed series

  • Summary: FF3 is one of three games telling how the crystals came into being and how they are threatened. IV is the first to move away from this direct storytelling, i say direct as in not "a joke" or "stupid" as some have pointed which bothers most real gamers who played in the 1980' 1990's and are not so spoiled as kids now. The main plots are strait foreward, but a good start to more grandiose stories later on, as in 4 or 6 and the sucessors to them.

  • Summary: I love the Final Fantasy series so when I came across this one I was excited ^o^ Its fun and the touch screen makes things faster when it comes to dishing commands but of course if you don't like that the normal controls do still work. I think its awesome you get the chose of which way to play.

A remake of an old game - and it shows

Harmless Gryphon, Amazon

  • Summary: Final Fantasy III is a good game, visually and audibly. It comes close to rivaling the graphical power of a game for the PS1. Almost, that is. Perhaps the next-gen handheld will look as good as the PS1. Gameplay-wise, this shows it's age. It's from an era when adventure game=wandering around for hours, leveling up your charachters with random encounters, and dying if you dared stray off the storyline path.

Not My Favorite Final Fantasy

Amazon Customer, Amazon
13 April 2007
  • Summary: Turn based RPG aren't the most exciting games to play at times. Choosing a spell or attack from a menu isn't the most interactive way to play a game. However, the Final Fantasy series lives on because of its storyline, graphics, and memorable characters. Sadly, I didn't think Final Fantasy III lived up to that heritage. The story was slow at times, with little room for deviation or exploration. The characters were predictable.

Great for RPG fans - all others think twice

Lindsay Murphy, Amazon

  • Summary: Here we go with yet another Final Fantasy port for the DS. This time, though, most US gamers won't recognize it as a port - it was never released here! Then again, there may be a reason for that... As far as DS RPG releases go, this one's about as good as it gets. The graphics are beautiful - easily the best I've seen out of a handheld system. Sound is pretty much what you'd expect out of a FF title, and as always, kudos go to Nobuo Uematsu for soundtrack excellence.

An aggravating Grind-fest

Lucas, Amazon
29 April 2014
  • Summary: The first Final Fantasy game I was ever exposed to was Final Fantasy 7. As years went on, I found more Final Fantasies, and I came to own the vast majority of the games. Final Fantasy 3 on the DS is one of the least fun games I have played with the name "Final Fantasy" on it. Final Fantasy 3's story is bad.

Final Fantasy 3

Em1452027..., Ciao

  • Excerpt: I'm gradually working my way through the Final Fantasy series and so number three was next in line and it doesn't disappoint. I think it could easily have been on one of the bigger consoles and it would still have held its own well. Plot: You control four children called the light warriors who by prophecy, are chosen to save the world from its plunge into darkness. Usually the balance between light and dark is controlled by crystals but their power is fading.
  • Pros: Great gameplay and graphics
  • Cons: Poor save system and the two DS screens weren't used to the best of their abilities

A decent game

M. Munroe, amazon.co.uk

  • Summary: One of the biggest disappointments of Final Fantasy III is the lack of an interesting plot, and more importantly - boring and shallow characters. Interesting plot and characters is what makes grinding experience bearable in FF games, the excitement for the next plot or character development compels you to grind; although little to no grinding is needed in any of the newer titles.
