Summary: I'd almost say that FF is the wrong moniker for this game, especially comparing it to recent FF games. TBH, it is more like the Dragon Quest games, or the first few FFs. Truly Epic, Truly Awesome. Also, Bravely Default:Flying Fairy (this game's spiritual sequel) is now slated for a western release!
Summary: First of all, if your a fan of traditional RPG, this game will throw you off in its battle system. You cant select your target, either healing or attacking, and most of the time I tend to forget to equip spells I bought thinking it will automatically be used in battle. Overall, its a great game and has the best song in game.
Summary: The 4 Heroes of Light is so different from what I expected from a modern Final Fantasy game, and that's a compliment. When I think of current Final Fantasy games, I think of overwrought, overcomplicated productions. The 4 Heroes of Light reminds me more of an Atlus game. It's quiet and offbeat, and thoroughly enjoyable. The quest is straightforward, and you are given *just* enough guidance to keep going.
Summary: I have been playing Final Fantasy since the first NES release way back in the 80s. I am a huge fan of classic RPGs and love the DS (being the greatest system for classic style RPGs in the market). I read a lot of reviews about this game and had mixed expectations before playing. I have now played through a bit of the game and I have to say I am impressed. Though you lose the ability to target foes, the system does a great job of 'auto' targeting.
Summary: It's old style RPG. Nothing spectacular about the graphics. The gameplay is really fun though. I love the hats you can wear that give you a specialty. I really didn't expect this game to be so enjoyable. You do have to grind a bit, but I like to grind and work my team into a powerful, experienced fighting force so grinding for me is no big deal.
