liameyresMay 1, 2008I think this game is amazing. all the big game websites only give this game a 6 rating it definatly deserves a 10 and it is by far better than FF 12 revenant wings which gets a 7 rating but ROF is probably the best DS game out at the moment
RickyT.Apr 25, 2008Got the game today so this an initial review. Graphics are good, game seems fun so far. First and second dungeon seem to be a challenge, but not impossible Only flaw so far is the control system - you need to use both hands as the stylus at the same time which is impossible, not even using a hand instead of the stylus is a viable alternative as often all 3 are needed at the same time!
IanPlutonMar 10, 2008100% from 1UP? Seems their new non-metric reviewing scheme doesnt translate aross to Metacritic too accuratly. 1UP actually gave FFCC DS an 'A'. They say "We rate games on a scale of A+ through F", so A cannot equate to 100%.
Im suspicious of this high review score anyway. The 1UP review is plastered above and to the sides with large FFCC advertisments. Hmmmm...
Sep 29, 2013This game was pretty fun, if difficult to control at times. The story was actually pretty good, with compelling characters, but it did grow especially confusing at times. While the ending for the villain was satisfying, the ending for the twins felt almost bittersweet. Story mode is infinitely better than the allegedly single player option. You have to progress through the main story to be able to do anything in it, and it's overwhelmingly brutal. Not to mention the strange lack of a female Yuke model? However, that mode is meant to be played multiplayer, but chances are you will not find anyone to play with, rendering it single player, and very disappointing. And having to alchemize magic that runs out very easily is a total pain.

Nov 27, 2011This game has multiple modes such as Story Mode, Wireless Group Multiplayer and Offline Solo Multiplayer along with the ability to trade decorated moogles over Wifi. Story mode is the general main story which is rather well written for a translation and has some decent voice acting as in certain portions of the story. The multiplayer mode (solo and group) consist of doing minigames, missions, challenges and traveling through maps with either a group over wireless or solo offline with no restrictions of story mode. The music is for the most part repetitive and forgettable while sound effects and voice acting is pretty good. The level design is pretty bland and repetitive as they are constantly recycling the same map for most of the missions. The enemy AI traits like to be cheap by disabling you with ice or thunder magics and then surround you and beat you down while you can't react. You have four classes which boil down to a knight, a mage, an archer and an alchemist and can buy equipment and stat upgrades to make your character stronger or make you own equipment with materials you find. Although the game is extremely bland and rather difficult, there is more than enough content in the game to keep you playing for quite awhile if you are willing to go for 100% completion or are willing to play wireless multiplayer with friends.… Expand
