Rated 5 out of 5 by from Basically FF MH mashup if you havent heard I actually love MH games and I love the character design of FF characters... so BAM awesome game for myself. I get that it is terrible with controls, but it is portable.... the graphics could be better.... but its portable, and yea it is pretty easy... but its 40 bucks and there is SOOOO much content. I pay more for a movie that is only an hour and a half.... for the amount of time I have put in... more than worth it! And yea it is a little redundant but I just fought Ifrit... it was awesome. So go into it with an open mind and have some fun.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from FFE to MH not the other way This game would have been, fine, great even if I hadn't been a long time MH player (monster hunter). While the nostalgia is there in full effect, it will always be a bastardization of MH. It is insanely simple and requires little to know thought while playing. It would be perfect for young gamers or gamers who want an intro to MH. The one thing I love is the class system and the special abilities. I think this was very unique to add and would love to see it more fleshed out. But as stated, it's a dumbed down version of MH. Not bad, but not great either. For anyone who wants to say that this game is clearly not MH and to get over it, the problem is that the game is clearly based on MH with a lot of mechanics working the same way. I'm disappointed, but the nostalgia warms my heart.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Gameplay Really enjoy the crafting aspect, also the gameplay and combat are both smooth. I feel like they could have utilized the 3d aspect a little more though.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great but was hoping for certain features ... My initial excitement was dulled a little when it was apparent that there isn't any 3D features, something that I can't recall seeing advertised that it didn't have 3D, so that was a bummer. However the graphics are great and have nice "depth" so it has a bit of a three-dimensional feel. (If I had an old 3DS I probably would have played with the 3D off but now that I have the New 3DS I would have really liked 3D on this game). Gameplay reminds me of the FF titles on the DS like Chronicles of Time which had similar gameplay feel to them... since it's been quite a while since I've been enticed to a FF game I'm getting used to the ability commands. I'd have to play more to give a better review but these are my initial impressions after playing a few days. (Now I'm seriously looking forward to Bravely Second) I like FF Explorers free range action play more than turn based but since my most recent experience with the job system was Bravely Default, I'm getting used to Explorers method. (I still have a hard time wanting to play a straight-out Black Mage opting to Freelance and combine) Anyway, I'm still very happy with FF Explorers, the 3D aspect does disappoint a bit though.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A great past time game FF Explorers is a great take on a monster hunter style of game. With 21 job classes, monster training, and transformation into legendary final fantasy characters and eidolons, this game can take you hours upon hours of play time. The battle system is very smooth, the strategy involved in taking down bosses later on in the game is phenomenal. The ability to play online with friends or random people is a great way to play the game but as for myself I beat the game by myself. The only downside is the lack of a story, there is a story but it's not like a regular final fantasy entry.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Interesting take on MH The concept of explorers is really the same as Monster Hunter at its core. Free roam your village/town, accept and complete quests in the outside world, collect materials and craft new gear. Aside from the main concept everything else is much different. MH has a complex combat system, TONS of grinding and creating custom armor sets for skills while Explorers has a lot less complexity when it comes to this. Not being able to roll during combat is just one example of this simplicity. Instead of weapons classes Explorers has the classic job system which is well done and makes the game its own. It also has special skills that you customize and activate almost like a turn based RPG but in live gameplay. So far getting materials, money, and new items has been easy. Bosses haven't been super challenging yet and the game lets you keep going if you run out of HP by sacrificing some of the time allotted to complete your quest. The reason for the low score on graphics is that there is no 3D which would make the world come alive in my opinion. the graphics are a bit lackluster. If I had to class this game I would put it between fantasy life and monster hunter. Combat, collecting and job classes more similar to fantasy life but with a core concept and crafting of MH with a level of difficulty in between both. I'm about 10 hours in and I'm enjoying it, however If Monster Hunter X was localized in the west currently I DEFINITELY would be playing that instead.
