    With an excellent battle system and diverse character roster, Terra Battle is ever expanding and endlessly playable.

    Terra Battle is creative, well put-together, and it consistently shows you a good time.

    I strongly recommend trying it, but do so knowing that as good as it is, it's all ultimately in service to the same basic principles every free social RPG runs on.

    A superbly balanced genre blend of role-playing, action and puzzle with some slightly irritating free-to-play embellishments.

    Terra Battle will open a lot of eyes for those who decide to download it. It has a good story and a lot of options available with more on the way, and despite its faults, you should still give it a look.

    Terra Battle offers compelling character and combat systems, as long as you’re okay not pushing through the game in a short time.

    An adventure that defies genre classification with the charm and personality of Hironobu Sakaguchi, the man behind Final Fantasy.

    One of the best IOS Games i have ever played :)
    There are so much characters and different classes to get, and they are all just so well designed.
    The combat system evolves after a few chapters to a really challenging thing :)
    10/10, its just perfect.

    Very fun so far, haven't paid anything and still got fun characters. We'll see how the free to play aspect is maintained when multiplayer is added in.

    Surprisingly deep RPG from the creators of Final Fantasy. But the addicting part is collecting your own characters. The artwork is reallySurprisingly deep RPG from the creators of Final Fantasy. But the addicting part is collecting your own characters. The artwork is really detailed and some weird. It's free. The only micro transaction is buying energy which can be used to gamble for more characters, restore stamina, or if your party dies. It's not necessary to beat the game and its story. Expand

    A very good try of a fantastic game, however was only able to be a good-great game.

    Pros: Good music, great artwork, very innovative combat mechanics, wide variety of characters and monsters, long game time, regularly updated, co-op mode, versus mode (coming soon)

    Cons: Repetitive music, (kinda) repetitive combat, too easy, (kinda) pay-to-win, no replay value (yet), farming based, can't be played offline.

    This is a beautifully designed game with a lot of fun and interesting combats. It has an okay-good story, the music is quite good, however there are only a couple of songs for the combats which start getting really boring and annoying after some time. They could've added some more songs. The combat mechanics is nothing like I've seen before so i was quite impressed with it.

    However, the combats get quite repetitive when there are no bosses around. The game, generally is really easy. I finished the campaign twice and there are very few levels that are actually challenging.

    It's not really a fully pay-to-win game. But your party has a stamina value, which you spend to enter combats. Stamina replenishes by 1 every 5 minutes, and combats take up to 20 stamina at the end of the game. This means you have to wait 100 minutes in order to enter a battle. You can of course use Energy points to fully restore your stamina, which is of course sold for real money. Basically if you want to play the game for 16 hours straight, you can't, if you're not willing to pay.

    Moreover, the characters you can have in your party (6 max) are categorized into rarities, mostly the rarer a character the stronger he/she is. You come across characters throughout the game and you can recruit new ones with the resources you gather in the game. However, in order to recruit the best characters, you mostly need to use ENERGY again of course, for which you need to pay. It is totally possible, actually even easy to finish the game without paying anything of course. But it is still frustrating to have to wait in order to play a game.

    As I stated before, the game is farming based. In order to make your characters stronger, you need to add jobs. In order to add jobs, you need some materials which drop from monsters. There are tons of different kinds of materials and you need to gather some specific amount of each of them to add a job to a characters. This means, you need to replay some battles over and over again to drop that specific item needed.

    The game is really easy. At least the campaign is really easy. I wish there was different difficulties or extra challenges, which they might add as it is a regularly updated game. They actually introduce some extra challenges from time to time, which I have to admit are really difficult, but they are only temporary unfortunately.

    Even though the game takes a really long time to finish (especially because you have to wait for your stamina to restore) it has no replay value as there is not much to do after the campaign is completed.

    Currently, online mode only consists of co-op where you can try defeating bosses with your friends or strangers, which is a nice touch. A versus mode for online has been on its way for a long time now, I don't know when that will be available. I'm pretty sure it will be REALLY fun to play this game against human opponents and I can't wait for that day to come. With a nice ranking system, this feature could make the game have an infinite replay value, and one of the top games out there.

    The game requires you to be online at all times so if you're looking for a game you wish to play on a plane or anywhere else with no internet connection, this game is not for you.

    All in all: As I said at the start, this is a really good game, but it could have been fantastic with some extra touches. If you're looking for a game where you enjoy building up characters, farming and battling using these characters, also enjoy a really innovative and fun combat mechanics this is a must have. However, if you are annoyed by the fact that you would have to wait long times in order to play the game, or hate farming for items doing the same things over and over again, or looking for a really challenging game that would take a lot of mind power and patience to solve, this game is not for you.

    One thing is certain, this game will consume a lot of your time.

This game, while fun, will steal your money if you pay for energy. Game crashed after spending over $300.00 and they wouldn't refund nor give me my account back NO MATTER what information I provided! They are scam artists who care NOTHING for their customers. You've been warned!

    I will never purchase another product by this conman of a company (Mistwalker) again.
