  1. As a gamer that has been burnt out by excessively cruel and repetitive dungeon crawlers in the past, the game never left me feeling overly drained and worn out. Chocobo’s Dungeon deserves at least a few hours of any adventurous Wii gamer’s time.
  2. It takes out some of the frustration that makes the genre so inaccessible without sacrificing the challenge and accomplishment that make it so fun.
  3. It seems the CGI wizards at Square Enix hit another home run with the game and while the amount of CGI is actually much lower then what most Final Fantasy veterans will be used to, they will find what we do have is excellent.
  4. Final Fantasy Fables: Chocobo´s Dungeon is a correct spin-off of the Final Fantasy series. The game is designed for the beginner players with few experience in these kind of games, but is focused for the followers of the franchise too. The dungeon system is a little repetitive but the job classes and the minigames help to offer a great mix of gameplay.
  5. 75
    As I said, Chocobo's Dungeon isn't perfect but it still manages to offer up enough fun to make you keep going. [July 2008, p.83]
  6. Final Fantasy flavorings keep this dungeon crawler enjoyable for fans in spite of some tiresome and frustrating elements.
  7. A relic of gameplay design that should have gone extinct with the dinosaurs. [July 2008, p.92]
