Final Fantasy: All the Bravest is a game that only longtime fans could love, and only because it's a sprite and music dump of past titles. At the same time, it's a slap in the face of those fans with its shameless in-app purchases.
I play this game for several hours everyday and have not tired of it! I spent around 1000$ so far and plan to spend more. Easy purchase breaths new life into this fantastic game. I hope they make a sequel!
In 2013, as publishers finally begin to tread the waters of micro-transactions a little more carefully, and with a sensitive eye on the balance between player experience and profitability, this is how Square Enix chooses to reward that devotion, commitment and support of a franchise over all of these years. Depressing is a word too.
This loose fragment of fan-service is priced as a Vita game and designed as a low-end iOS game. Square’s use of IAPs wouldn’t be a good model even if it were free-to-play. With the premium attached, All the Bravest is simply anti-consumer. It’s a big waste of a good opportunity to streamline.
This is a game with only two gameplay features: tap the screen and give Square money. It's true that the music is great and the nostalgia value is off the charts, but neither of these things justify a release that is little more than a blatant cash grab.
This is the Final Fantasy game I've been waiting for since FFX. Great graphics, music from previous FF titles that make you nostalgic to the good ole days. Innovative tap gameplay and the first game in the series where you can send out a whole platoon to fight enemies! Only 4 bucks so this is definetly a must buy for every FF fan! Forget FFvsXIII, this is the real deal.
Final Fantasy All The Bravest looks great , has an amazing soundtrack and is a Final Fantasy game that I will always love to go back to. Wait you're telling me that this isn't really a Final Fantasy game. That it's just a cheap way of exploiting nostalgia to squeeze all the money they can get out of us. Oh....
Final Fantasy All The Bravest is a Final Fantasy game in name only. While It may look like a classic 2-d Final Fantasy game and sound like one, let's just say it's not. I was lucky enough to get the game after Square Enix stopped charging 4 US American dollars for it. Just hearing about that pissed me off because after that if you really want to have any fun you have to pay for more hourglasses to instantly revive your party (like Pheonix Downs) and you have to pay money for the areas from FF7, FFX, and FFXIII. Also how'd you like to have up to 25 to 40 classic and iconic Final Fantasy Chracters on your team, well guess what they only cost a dollar EACH, and they are randomly picked every time so that means you could waste money on a Character you already bought.
So now I want to bring up the "gameplay" Final Fantasy All the Bravest has to offer. You enter into battle with a maximum of 40 randomly chosen party members. They are taken from your pool of unlocked or purchased characters. You then swipe or tap your fingers to launch your party members at your enimies. That's right no strategy no though and not a lot of fun just randomly attacking and hoping that you win. All of your party members die in one hit meaning in some of the later fights you'll be and then out in like 25 seconds flat. If a party member falls you have two options: **** could wait three minutes for them to come back or **** or pay for an hourglass to revive them all instantly. Also if you have unlocked the maximum of 40 party members then guess how long you have to wait to play again exactly TWO HOURS before you can play again that's just stupid why not just kick you out of the battle and let you go grind some earlier battles. The only saving grace the gameplay has is fever mode. Normally after every attack your party member lands they have to wait for their ATB gauge to refill before they can attack again. But every 3 hours fever mode happens. While in fever mode you can just attack and attack until the mode runs out. Now this is the only form of strategy I can think of for this game. Here's what you do plan out your play sessions so your only play during fever mode I guess.
So Final Fantasy All The Bravest is a CASHGRAB TO THE HIGHEST DEGREE OF THE WORD. Attempting to cater to the Final Fantasy fanbase and use our nostalgia blind kids inside of us to pay money for this **** It's sad so sad because if everything was free in this game I could excuse it and just say it's just a cute little mobile game. But no it may be free to play now but its pay to win.
Even as someone who has next to no experience with the series, I can tell you that this is a Final Fantasy game in name only. The only thing it bears in resemblance to the well-respected RPG series is a graphical style reminiscent of the older games and a great OST. All you do in this game is mindlessly swipe your finger up and down the screen in order to get your units to attack. When your units die, which they do in one hit, you either have to wait on a timer for them to respawn or buy them back faster with micro-transactions. Considering you can just close the app and wait for your troops to respawn without losing any progress in the battle, micro-transactions aren't an issue. Sure that means you won't be playing the game, but because the odds of you having fun with the game are practically non-existant, there's no real loss. No matter how much of a series fan you are, pass on this. It just makes a mockery of the series you love. My total score is a 4.4/10=Bad.
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.
What a pathetic excuse **** this is, there is no gameplay except tapping characters to have them attack your enemies, until you discover you can 'attack' faster if you just drag your finger accross the screen. Collecting weapons was fun for a little bit of time, but the game quickly lost its appeal after having literally no depth at all. l give this game a 1 purely because you get to listen to the fantastic music of the Final Fantasy games, otherwise, l really hope SE does not allow garbage like this to ever happen again.
