Delivering a cohesive game with addictive gameplay and mechanics, Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin brings back classic characters in an honorable way. It is a good choice for fans of the franchise and lovers of the genre.
An absurd game in the spectrum of Final Fantasy, but in a positive sense. The many boss fights, the cool combat, good AI and more make it more than worth it. You have to love it, as it is anything but a traditional Final Fantasy game, but in what it tries to do, it succeeds in its mission. The gameplay is engaging and manages to entertain, which is ultimately the most important thing.
Stranger of Paradise, despite its poor story presentation, manages to be a great spinoff for the Final Fantasy series, with gameplay beyond my expectations. It's time to destroy the Chaos! Wherever it is!
Stranger of Paradise Final Fantasy Origin attempts to fuse the original’s sensibility into a fast-paced action RPG. For the most part, it is successful with intense action gameplay and beautiful music. Adjustable difficulty options and online co-op make the game accessible to a myriad of gamers without diminishing challenge or sacrificing replayability. It’s somewhat fitting that in this topsy-turvy action spin-off, the only thing that’s truly upside-down is the presentation of the original game’s story. Even as the narrative stumbles, the core gameplay is strong enough to motivate to see this story through to completion, no matter how chaotic.
Stranger of Paradise Final Fantasy Origin is an action-oriented RPG whose gameplay mechanics are almost entirely based on those of Nioh, one of the most prominent Dark Souls clones. The game is a bit outdated in its layout and it seems to come from another age.
Stranger of Paradise tries to marry Final Fantasy with a soulslike, while also often reaching outside this genre. The whole idea was great, which makes the poor execution (uninspired level design, run-of-the-mill story, mediocre graphics, boring boss fights) even more disappointing. However, if you’re able to turn a blind eye to the game’s many flaws, you might find it moderately enjoyable.
Stranger of Paradise is mostly just a mess. When the gameplay works, it works surprisingly well, but that wasn’t often enough to make it fun for its entire runtime. It’s hard to make a judgement on the story, mostly because there isn’t much of a narrative, but it’s even more disappointing because I wanted to spend more time with the characters, because they’re far from unlikeable. A grand ode to Final Fantasy it is not, and it fails to appeal to the JRPG lover in me on most counts.
It’s decent. Visuals kinda meh. Has a charm to it but honestly at times reminds me **** looking PS3 game. Overall plays alright. Story kinda ****. Characters **** except for Jack. Jack is hilarious. The best way to play this game is to not take it serious and play it co op. Very fun co op game.
Stranger of paradise is a strange game. On one hand the game had tons of potential on the other in many ways it feels very rushed. It seems like a lot of focused went into combat rather then making a interesting story which FF franchise is know for. There is plenty of classes and combination to go with but all falls apart once you start looking into the loot system which is so over bloated its ridiculous.
This game could really do with some more development time and fine tuning all systems to make more of a cohesive game. Overall I enjoyed my time with stranger of paradise but its not a game I would go back to again.
This game is an embarrassment to the franchise. I started it up with 2 other friends thinking it might be somewhat decent or average but it is nonsense. The story and character interactions are pitiful. We had hoped this would be fun coming from the devs of Nioh but it felt like it was made by interns who didn't know what they were doing.
It feels so very poorly designed and unfinished in parts. It makes me wonder if anyone back at Square Enix even looked at this game to approve it.
I really wouldn't recommend this game even to hardcore fans of the series.
