Co-oped it and it was a funny romp.

There's a lot of great ideas here but it kinda feels like it's a 50+ hour JRPG plot hypercondensed into 12-15hrs, as a lot of big plot beats are unceremoniously dropped on your lap. Gameplay's fun but the co-op balancing is stupid, me and my friend kinda lawnmowed through almost everything save for two bosses.

I'm hoping they get another shot at this sort of formula but man I hope they're better with their plot pacing next time.

I can't wrap my head around the making of this game but so blessed it was.

You haven't experienced gaming like this.

2 years later still the best purely focused action game to come out post NGII

There will never ever be another man like Jack Garland

This was... something? Honestly, I have to say I just picked this game cause it`s a FF game, otherwise I wouldn`t come near it since soulslike games (which this game is not really that) aren`t really my thing, but at the end of the day, I think I only enjoyed it because of the fact that is not entirely a Dark Souls kinda game, but it has that Final Fantasy touch on it.

The combat, I dare say, was pretty dope. The solution the devs found to put the FF magic on this was simple: jobs. You have a whole lot of them to try out, 27 to be more precise, and even so most of them don`t really change that much the gameplay, it`s still lots of fun to give it a go using a spear and jumping as a dragoon, mixing spells and melee attacks as a sage or just blasting away powerful magics as a black mage, and this really sets aparts this game to the similar ones.

However, if you got this looking to find an intricate story just like every other FF game, i guarantee you will not find this here. The story is just bad, an utter and complete chaos (you see what I did here?), ; the dialogues are dreadful and it`s hard to guess if this game is meant to be taken seriously or not - the first scene is a bloody, dark and mysterious one and then the next starts off with a Frank Sinatra song, so it can be really confusing. My advice? Don`t take this serious at all. That way, you going to enjoy this more.

Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin (2022) is one of the games ever made.
