My lest favorite FF for the DS

Summary: This is a tactics / real time battle based FF rpg for the DS. I much preferred the fantastic remake of FF IV and FF III, as well as the newer Four Heroes of Light. I found the learning curve to be too difficult on this title, and couldn't get into it. Admittingly, I have an aversion to real time battle RPG and prefer turn based strategy, so my bias is part of the reason I was disappointed.
Summary: I have to say that I only got a few hours into this game, and that the gameplay may improve later on, but the basic fundamentals are clumsy, unintuitive, childish, and, above all, lacking in any kind of strategy. It's like an RTS for 6 year olds; all you do is pump out disposable monster units, select your mob, and tap a spot near the enemy. If you want a real RPG get final fantasy III or IV; if you want a good strategy rpg get tactics ogre advance or FF tactics.
Summary: I was expecting it to be at least a bit like FFTA for the gba but its nothing like it. You can't have all the creatures like moogles and things, the fighting style is way too fast and it was really quite hard. My advice is, if you liked FFTA on gba and want something like it, don't have this.
