Couldn’t get into it. I didn’t find the stories very engaging and I didn’t enjoy the combat system at all. The art style was very cute though!
I played the original a bit with the unofficial translation, but I never made it past a couple of the stories. I bought this as a time killer while I wait for FFXVI to drop, and it turned out to be so much more than that. This game is 29 years old and there's still nothing like it.
Simply one of the best RPGs I have ever played. I went into Expecting to enjoy it as I have heard many good things about it but what I did not expect was to be FLOORED and being completely inlove with everything about this game by the end of this beautiful journey.
This game is the game I will recommend people when they ask me what is a great first RPG to play. This game respects your time and will not force you to grind hours upon hours for an item or to level. I really wish more RPGs would follow this formula as it would make me play them more knowing I wouldn't have to dump 60+ hours into the game with 50% of it being grinding.
The game sets you on multiple journeys with 7 characters each with their own storyline. For the most part each characters story is about 2 hours long with the exception of the fighter being only about 40 mins long. Speaking of the fighter he by far has the weakest storyline and I was bummed out because I was pretty excited for his story. My fav stories in the game were the Shifu, both Future stories and the western story.
I will not talk about anything else as honestly going into this game as blind as possible really elevated the experience for me. As this game is now on most platforms this is a MUST BUY for any RPG fan or fans who want to get into the genre.
Its an experience you won't get often and one that should be experienced by everyone.
