Rated 9 out of 10
by CmdrLeonhart Great fun
The game can be a little repetitive, the characters a little talkative, but overall there is way more to the game than I had expected.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Xanderithik Best 3DS Game Thus Far.
This is the first game that was so great that i felt the need to write a review on it. I picked this game up the day it was released, and I could not be happier about it. Fantasy Life plays like a MMORPG, except it isn't. You start off by customizing your character, everything from your hairstyle (which can be changed later) to the type, color, and size of your eyes. After that you pick your "Life" to begin with and start your grand adventure! When I first got the game the class system worried me. I thought that if I was on an adventure as a paladin and I came across some trees, I wouldn't be able to cut it down because I would currently be a Paladin, not a woodcutter. Thankfully, this is not the case. You can use any of the skills you have learned regardless of your current life. This game is MASSIVE and has tons of replay-ability and I would recommend it to anyone he likes to have a good time, and doesn't mind reading, because there is a lot of reading in Fantasy Life.
Rated 10 out of 10 by mariocort Not my kind of game and I still loved it
I'm one of the people that only bought a 3DS for pokemon. I never do like most 3DS games I try out. I suppose my biggest problem has been that handheld games felt too small or too simple. I bought fantasy life expecting to be done with it after 10 hours or less. Well, over 100 hours of playing have passed and I can not put this game down. There is far, far more content than I expected. It's like a game with the personalized experience of an RPG, where you feel like you are the center of the world's story and can have an effect on the world, but the content of an MMO where there's thousands of items and gear and always new things for you to do. You can mine, cook, chop trees, use swords, bows, or magic, be a blacksmith and make your own gear, be a tailor and make some clothes, be a carpenter and make furniture for your houses, catch fish, brew potions, do side quests, make allies, level up your skills, buy upgrades with bliss, it's crazy how much there is to do in this game. If you are generally a fan of RPGs, this game is a must buy.

Recently bought this for my girlfriend, who isn't much of a gamer. She loves it and so do I. It's cute and it's fun to play. You can jump around from the different classes, build your own home, and create your own life. I like to think that it's a better take on Animal Crossing. It's more adult geared and is tons of fun. I'm a huge fan of RPGs and MMORPGs, and I have to tell ya, this game is great. The selection for 3DS seems lacking, aside from Monster Hunter, really. This game definitely brought back that drive to play my 3DS again.
Rated 10 out of 10 by TheEvilCrayonBox This game is RPG gold!
My friend suggested this game to me a few days ago since it was coming out soon. Boy, am I glad I took that advice. The sound in the game is soothing and fun to listen to. The music changes depending on the situation. The gameplay is pretty straightforward for the most part. I love RPGs, and this one has me hooked. I have been glued to my 3DS because there is just tons to do in Fantasy Life. So far I'm only level 23 and have 3 lifestyles, and there are 9 more lifestyles to play with. I'm still in low level skills for some things. I enjoy gathering and making my own weapons and armors! Areas to explore are pretty simple and accessible, you cannot progress without completing certain quests, and there are lots of them all over the place. I highly recommend this game for those who love a good RPG.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Woody27 Fantasy Life is Amazing.
Fantasy Life is the most under rated 3DS game. Fantasy Life is one of the best 3DS games if not the best game. Fantasy life is a must own 3DS game that you can play for countless hours non stop. If you have any doubts about buying this game, this game is absolutely legit. I am glad I bought this game and so will you. Just skip through the talking scenes and you're good to go. I can't say enough good things about this game. I think Fantasy Life might be better than Pokemon XY and ORAS (I beat both Pokemon games and more and now they're just unplayable and basically useless).

I have to admit, I only found out about the game today (okay, knew about it but watched the trailer today,) The game looks awesome! 12 different playable jobs with the ability to switch (nearly) on the fly, pets, fighting monsters, leveling up, etc. It's like Rune factory, harvest moon, and final fantasy combined! And it's going to be getting first day DLC! Based on what the European DLC price was, the North American DLC will probably be around $10. With the DLC you can get your levels higher, two more pet types are available (besides dog and cat, bird and dragon will be available,) and origin island will be open (plus a lot more!) You can have up to three pets and they can fight with you! Multiplayer is also available with up to two friends. Come one and come all! This is going to be an amazing adventure!
Rated 10 out of 10 by Pip88 Great Game!
So far I've played Fantasy Life for about 25 hours and I feel like I've barely scratched the surface. The map is huge with plenty of places to discover/explore and, even though I've completed the main story, there are still tons of challenges to complete post-game. I've played as two classes (paladin and miner) so far and neither of them have gotten tiring yet, since there are always new challenges to complete to reach higher ranks.
While the sound/music gets to be repetitive, the graphics/cut scenes are cute and artsy. This game is like a combination of Harvest Moon, Disney Magical World, and Runescape.
Overall, this game is a lot of fun and even though I've completed it, I am nowhere near done playing it since there is so much else left to do.
Rated 10 out of 10 by evilninja best game for the 3DS
I have pretty much every console ever created, I have always loved most things Nintendo released. When it came to the synopsis of this game it peeked my interest. I love open world, create you own character RPGs ever since I first played FF3. The story is the only thing I would have an issue with in this game, sometimes it's tedious and long winded but you can mash the "A" button to skip it, the write down everything in a quick blurb if you just want the gist of what to do. But creating your own weapons, armors, clothes, tools, and teaming up with NPCs gives the player a different experience with each Life path they choose. meeting certain challenges and leveling up a certain Life comes in handy for switching and advancing another.
Rated 7 out of 10 by OtakuTommy Good, but could be better.
You start off by creating your character. That was the best part of the game. So many options to chose from and the design was amazing compared to the Mii characters or the characters in Animal Crossing.The in-game experience was not so good because the creator of the game didn't use the 3DS's screen to it's max potential. An example to using the screen to its max potential would be the latest Pokemon games. They make the character so big that we could actually see details. In Fantasy Life, the characters are so small and chibi that we can't even tell what the face looks like.
