Theatrhythm Final Fantasy
Not what I was expecting.
The game itself is a good idea, but honestly the way the game was made doesn't hold up to standards. First off, let me tell you that its fun to play a rhythm game along to final fantasy games. The problem is, there are only 3 songs out of a game if you don't play the opening and closing, which have been treated as a tapping event other than the real songs which have more of a battle feel to them. The problem about this game, is that they expect you to have played a lot more of the games than just the small amount you have played. If you haven't, the music to those games are either foreign to you, or spoil the games you might have not played yet. Also, I expected more than the amount of songs available, which are barely viable for a game. Also, the DLC only allows you to add 1-2 songs to the game and it feels a lot like the additions should have been there from the start and the game was half finished.
When i first got this game i couldn't stop playing it. It's the best Final Fantasy 3DS game YET! Get it this game it's WORTH IT
Amazing if not thinned out and milked
I would easily consider this better than mainstream music games like guitar hero, but this games feels so milked. It is really only 4 hours long. There are 3 modes, but you will start off on series mode (which has 5 songs each for final fantasy to final fantasy 13). Once you complete series mode, that is it. The rest of the game is basically about playing the songs you have already played on a different difficulty setting and you will probably miss out on the multiplayer experience (there is one by the way). Mostly because there is no download play and online play. You can buy a additional 52 songs that are each 0.99 cents.
The rpg elements are a nice touch. You can set up a party of 4 characters from a pool of 13 you can choose from. One coming from each final fantasy title. You can unlock more characters as you play. Characters can level up, equip skills, and equip one item for the entire party. Top that off with real music, a since of nostalgia, and you will probably be hooked. Or you could just go buy a album with the music on it...
Be warned, you don't want to pause during this game. It is not user friendly like other music games. Which would rewind a bit or give a brief second for you to get back into playing.
Get it if you love Final Fantasy Music ^^
Theatrhythm Final Fantasy is a wonderful Music game that spans the most memorable Music of the Final Fantasy Franchise. If you are a Fan of Final Fantasy music, I highly recommend this game to you. This game also have loads of content thanks to DLC. :)
Don't waste your money!!!!!
I found this game completely awful. The demo was really great but the actual game is horrible. It is very boring. I would recommend that you don't waste your money because the game is awful!
i have to admit when I first saw the game I wasn't at all interested in even trying it, then I downloaded the demo and it sat there for a few days before I finally tried it. After 10 minutes I closed the 3DS and drove up to GS to buy it...lol. It's very entertaining, and it's a very nice change from the normal genres I usually play. There's so much to do I know I'll get more than my money's worth here.
Love this game!
I love everything about this game! There are so many things to unlock, the game is fun, and the different play modes make me want to replay and replay until I get perfect scores. Deff not for people who are looking for and rpg or fighter, but a darn good rhythm game! Even though there are only a few songs from the main 13 Final Fantasy games when you start out in the story mode, you can unlock more songs and can purchase more for a wider variety. Even without buying any extra songs, this game has plenty to play.
great for music lovers.
I just got this game, and ive been a fan of the FF series since i was like five. And a big part of the game was music, so I thought tis would cool, and it is.
A love letter to Final Fantasy fans.
This game is a rythmn based game where you simply touch the screen when a note comes by. Simple right? No, it's not that simple. it gets hard. This game will make you want to play all the Final Fantasy's over again. The only problem i have with this game is that in the FMS stages, there is 2D things in the background. Come on, I want more eye candy.
It's all about the music
I've been a fan of the Final Fantasy series since I was eight and I fell in love with this immediately. The first thing you should know is that it's obviously not your average FF title, just a little something for fun.The character designs are super adorable with little comments specific to their personalities (just what you'd expect straight from Japan) and the addictive tap-tap gameplay is perfect to wind down after work or school without giving yourself a major headache. I love the different modes of play this game allows you to undergo and it has a nice range of difficulties that keep you entertained for quite a while. I also love that each song has it's own scenery matching it's game and the cute moogle and chocobo additions had me giggling with joy the first time I discovered them. Leveling up is an interesting touch and even more are the abilities and stat bonuses certain characters can obtain as you play. I really couldn't be happier with this game.
If you're looking for a hardcore RPG, this probably isn't the game for you. I'm sure after I've had this for a while and unlocked everything I can, the lasting appeal will die down. But there's still a lot to explore and that will take some time. All in all, it's mostly depending on what type of gamer you are that will determine how well you like this.
