Prepare to have no Social Life
This game looks absolutely wonderful! As has been mentioned, very much like Animal Crossing and other similar games of that genre. But waaayyy more variety to the gameplay. With the option to change your "Life" at will, no more debates on which one or two classes to be. Be them all! This game is apparently so massive, that you most likely will only complete it 100% once, let alone even that if you somehow manage to keep a social life at the same time haha. After watching the E3 videos of this game, it was a no-brainer. Gotta preorder this game asap!
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.
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.
Get a Life
The whole purpose of the game, is you are starting your life! right away you pick from a variety of lives that sets the whole plot of the game. I was not surprised when i saw that the first three life options were paladin, hunter, and magician. What i was really surprised about was the other classes ; mercenary, cook, alchemist, fisherman, woodcutter, tailor, miner, carpenter, and blacksmith. This game is going to be one of those games you can play over and over again and never get bored. The only con about this game I rated it a point down for, is how slow the start of it is. I know a lot of gamers experience a slow start in a game and quit it. If you can get past that though, this game is fantastic.
Fun and More Fun!
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.
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.
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!
Happy this game is here!
I am really excited about this game!
When I found out this game was coming to America, I could not believe it. This game is like a mixture of the Harvest Moon games and Animal Crossing, only with a lot more options for character design. This game was also one of the top games in 2013 in Japan, and had a lot of downloadable content. I hope they will release some of those here in America, too.
I'm so happy it's coming! XD
Vast amount of things to do.
Been playing very frequently since NA release. If you ever get bored of grinding the story, relax and do the other 30 things in the game. Go hunting, make furniture, explore and find secret caves, sit around and listen to the great soundtrack, etc. It's loads of fun with friends too!
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).
