The game I want to talk to you about is called Theatrhythm Final Fantasy. It is the ideal recreational game. This is hilarious really since usually Final fantasy games are quite elaborate.
Are you a big fan of the Final fantasy music?
Have you collected the soundtracks and know the songs by heart?
Then you’ll love this game. No really, you will. Because it will be a hell a lot easier for you to play than for a person who’s never heard the music. It actually helps to know the beats and the melodies.
It revisits the musicals scores starting from the very first FF to the latest.
Unfortunately, only the main games, not the extra side tracks that were released. This bummed me out because I really loved the music in Chocobo Racing! And yes! You get to beat Sephiroths butt again! Horrah!
Anywho, you start by selecting 4 characters to add to your party. The heroes from all games are available. Extra characters are available to unlock through collecting crystal shards. By going through music scores playing epilepsy Guitar Hero by using your pen, you gain experience, level up, find treasures and get ridiculous cramps in your pinky.
My minions, or my party, contained the self-loathing loner, Squall, the radioactive ball buster (Sword HAH) Cloud, the playboy with two tails Zidane and Terra, whom I have no opinion off.
They are in an adorable chibi format which makes them extra adorable. I know it might not be a very manly statement, but it is the truth. There are 3 modes available in the main story game.
1) Battle (plenty of ball mashing)
2) Squiggly movie roundie thingie.
3) Walking through terrain by moving your cursor more than actually pressing the balls
If you are bored with the mellow Normal mode, then there is the Dark note section that will satisfy your sadistic need.
I kid you not, if you do not have arteritis, then this will cause it. I must love the pain because that is where I spend most of my time.
There is some sort of limited googoo gaagaa community mode ala Nintendo. Where you can play co op (if you have friends L )or pick up Dark notes from your friends to share in your agony.
All kidding aside, this is a great game. It’s well made, the controls are easy and it is a great tribute to the music and heart collected through Final fantasy history.
The only thing I have a beef with is that you have to BUY new song content!!!
For shame Nintendo L
So here is for a great game!
Speaking of game.
I’ve done some great progress on my puzzle game!
Till next time!
Yours truly in game
