    Final Fantasy All the Bravest is almost insulting to play, but it's not beyond redemption.

A game should have decisions, that's what games are about: you make decisions, learn patterns, execute them, make strategies and overall just have plain fun! That's all what All The Bravest is not.

    The game is intended to be a battle game only, but all you do is swipe your finger over and over, no decisions at all, whichever character you choose makes no difference whatsoever so you don't even have an strategy when you enter the battle. The team disposition is entirely random, the attacks are entirely random, you can't equip items because yep, that's entirely random, and to get even worse you're from time to time wiped out of the screen and has to either buy your way back or wait for a long period to play again. This just doesn't make sense!

    Even the things you buy in the store follow this idea: the premium characters which give a little bit more damage(and because of that they take more time to recharge and attack again) are just cosmetic pieces, because in the end they're the same as the regular characters. And the worlds that you buy which are the same price as the game itself don't add anything to the "game"!

    Square Enix was just following the fad of Facebook games and made this game so that they could get money from its fan base. But it's so so insulting that even facebook cashgames like farmville you can "lose" the game if you don't come back in a certain period of time, but this game doesn't even do that... you some hour of the "game" WILL die and will have to wait OR buy your way back.

    It's insulting in a way that the game is balanced so that you lose the sub boss battles and the boss battles(unless you grind which is insane because grinding usually isn't fun so imagine here...), so you figure that they had a game designer creating a game SPECIFICALLY this way so that they could sell things.

    The game takes out all aspects that made the original games so interesting to play and leave the end product with only the graphics.

While a party of 20 characters should be fun to manage it fails in any management and encourages you to cheat with swipes. Way to easy and a real let down of the series. Full Review »

    All the Braves is one of the absolute worst offenders of microtransactions gaming has ever seen. It's possibly an even worse offender than TheAll the Braves is one of the absolute worst offenders of microtransactions gaming has ever seen. It's possibly an even worse offender than The War Z, which is pretty hard to do. Literally the entire game consists of you rubbing your phone's screen like you're relentlessly scratching a lottery ticket to attack enemies, which in turn is governed by an overly simplistic version of Final Fantasy's turn-based battle system. There is no non-linearity or adventuring to speak of; it's just battle after battle and so-on. The actual game is bad enough, but its reliance of microtransactions is what makes its very existence a potential offender of public decency. Literally every action in the game is governed by microtransactions, with only a few having free alternatives (all of which involving ludicrously long waiting times). Some enemies in the game require certain characters to defeat, and the only way you can get other characters is to pay money, and what makes even WORSE than that is that it's randomized, meaning that it can easily take you 35 payments to FINALLY get the character you want. What do you get out of it? A step closer to beating the game, but is it worth it? Hell no. This game isn't fun. It's not worth your hard-earned cash to purchase, and it sure as hell isn't worth it sustain. Full Review »
