    Combining a respectful homage to its source material with a decent battle system and loads of unlockables, Final Fantasy: Record Keeper is the real deal in my book.

    A solid game that was built for the different needs of mobile devices and modern gamers while embracing its past.

    Final Fantasy Record Keeper proves that the free-to-play approach to a historical series like Final Fantasy can be made in a right way.

    Even with its imperfections, Final Fantasy Record Keeper is a game you’ll gladly sink hours into as you fine-tune your party and play around with abilities and equipment.

    A good and exciting way to live again the best and the most classic battles found in the history of that great saga titled Final Fantasy.

    Probably the best Final Fantasy game on mobile and a good example of how to play fair with both nostalgia and free-to-play microtransactions.

    Record Keeper isn’t offensive. It can sometimes be a little fun. But it’s not incredibly engaging.

But the nostalgia andThis is undoubtedly one of the best F2P games I've ever played. The only F2P part here is the equipment and all. But the nostalgia and characters are completely unlockable without any payment AT ALL. Now this is what I really really like about FFRK. You don't have to pay for the nostalgia. And I have to say that I'm already very hooked, and not even half of the content is even released yet! I'm still waiting for the release of my favorite characters, from Shadow, Galuf and Bartz, to Gilgamesh and Lightning. But the wait is truly worth it, as well as this F2P game. I really recommend this game to many others, because FFRK isn't all about the nostalgia and all that. It's also about the party members, the combat, and your strategies for beating the tough FF bosses. Expand

Fun, challenging, and loads of events. You don't have to spend a penny as mythril is easily gotten from every battle. I have every character up to date and all memory crystals for each one. I always have fun and put about 20 minutes into this game each day. Expand

    Not bad and not great. Super repetitive, desperately needs more content and things to do besides just dungeons over and over. Look at GranNot bad and not great. Super repetitive, desperately needs more content and things to do besides just dungeons over and over. Look at Gran Blue as an example of what a social rpg can be in terms of extra things to do. VERY heavy on the gacha and outrageous prices. The boss battles, nostalgia, music and ability animations are all really cool though. Expand

    If this game wasn't called Final Fantasy, nobody would be playing it. The progression system clearly tries to make you spend money. AfterIf this game wasn't called Final Fantasy, nobody would be playing it. The progression system clearly tries to make you spend money. After spending 2 months saving resources and getting no 5 stars, you will desinstall this game and curse the developers.

    Even as a mobile game, it falls short. It tries to use nostalgia against you to make you spend money on characters relics that you want with ''greater chances'' of getting them (greater chances = 1 %).

    Final Fantasy Record Keeper (FFRK) is a fun and engaging mobile game that combines nostalgia for games of Final Fantasy past with a twist ofFinal Fantasy Record Keeper (FFRK) is a fun and engaging mobile game that combines nostalgia for games of Final Fantasy past with a twist of current Final Fantasy titles. Updates are frequent and the game is fast and friendly for beginners and people less familiar with previous the previous titles that the series draws upon.

    Unfortunately, the game's continued development is funded through an IAP system of gambling for "relics" that your party of adventurers use in combat and this system of gambling or "gacha" is largely unregulated in places outside of Japan. Obtaining better relics is integral to progression in the game and DeNa's lack of transparency regarding the percentile chance of obtaining the relics that they feature weekly is a significant turn-off and has opened the door for DeNa to exploit its playerbase in order to obtain money quickly.

    A substantial number of Record Keeper's players began contributing to a collection of data on the gambling aspect of the game through a sub-reddit and generated a statistically significant sample-size that also helps mitigate reporting bias. DeNa used Record Keeper's most recent event to cut the percent chance of obtaining several of the most desirable relics that were featured nearly in half from the normal percent rates that player's had collected data for.

    Outcry from some of the playerbase resulted in numbers of players emailing DeNa about this shady business practice and asking if there was any possibility that what happened was unintended or simply a mistake in the surveying or analysis of the data. DeNa responded by telling players everything was fine and working how they intended.

    DeNa removed any consumer confidence I had for them after this blatant money-grab and I felt inclined to email their customer support as well with my grievances regarding their lack of transparency in their IAPs and the current bait and switch tactic that sets a precedent that they may even cut the success rates by 90% or more without disclosing anything to the playerbase. Although I was only a very small financial contributor to the game who spent no money on the current event, DeNa has shown the playerbase that they will fully exploit the gambling grey-area of their gacha system to the detriment of the players.

    In summary, download and enjoy FFRK as a completely non-IAP user because DeNa cannot be trusted to fund development of the game responsibly. When you gamble you are paying for a chance to win, but when the slot machine you are playing is adjusted to make winning increasingly more difficult without your knowledge, the safest bet is to not pay all.
