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.
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...
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.
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.
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.
Excerpt: PRELUDE With the recent trailers for Final Fantasy XV looking more and more positive, I got into a right nostalgic mood. Happy that the next FF game looks worth the wait and of course that the lineage of the pink haired mary sue 'Lightning', has come to a much needed stop.
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.
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.
Pros: Great gameplay and graphics
Cons: Poor save system and the two DS screens weren't used to the best of their abilities
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...
