    As someone who has been a lifelong fan of Final Fantasy, World of Final Fantasy was specifically designed for people like me, and I love Square Enix for it. Respectful of its heritage, but creative with how it presents it, this game has had a far more meaningful impact on me than almost any other game I’ve played this year. So, thank you, Square Enix. It feels like a gift.

    Any Final Fantasy fan, no matter how many past titles they’ve sunk their teeth into, would be a fool to pass World of Final Fantasy up; this is fan service done exactly how it should be.

    As the simple dungeon layouts and low difficulty level suggest, the game is mostly aimed towards a younger, less experienced audience, but veterans of the Final Fantasy series shouldn't be put off by this, as the well-implemented fan service more than makes up for it.

    World of Final Fantasy may not look like a modern open-world action RPG. But instead, it brings colorful environments, an enjoyable story, great combat mechanics and, most importantly, nostalgia at its best. This Square Enix game was made for the Final Fantasy fan who loves the series and its iconic characters. It may not have the best narrative and dialogue, but it will give players tons of entertainment on many different levels.

    Do not be mistaken: Underneath the somewhat jovial appearance of this spinoff lies 30 years of homage to the fascinating world of Final Fantasy.

    World of Final Fantasy certainly is an inconsistent, yet intriguing experience. There’s a touching tale set against wonderful locations and characters drawn from Final Fantasy’s rich history, but its best parts are short-lived. The visuals nail the storybook vibe, and they’re accompanied by a solid soundtrack featuring original compositions and beautiful new arrangements of classic pieces. Yes, the combat system is obviously heavily influenced by a certain popular Nintendo franchise, but Square Enix has put a unique spin on the formula with the stacking mechanic.

    World of Final Fantasy tries to give you the nostalgia feels, but is unable to recapture the magic of previous 'hyper-deformed' games.

It reminds me of the golden age of Squaresoft. It's perfect for Final Fantasy fans. The game is loaded with content and I absolutely love how simple the interface is and how traditional the gameplay is. I miss games like this when all we have are a sea of action RPG's in an open world, which are not the same. Expand

At first I had some troubles with the chibi style, but I must say it grows on you. The gameplay is fun and addictive, with familiar tunes and characters. I'd say it's a mix of Ni no Kuni and Pokémon - all in Final Fantasy flavor. Maybe not for everyone, but most will be pleasantly surprised. This game is awesome! Expand
