Final Fantasy III
Great game the first time around.
Back in '07, I picked up this game, because it sounded cool. This was my first FF game. At first, I had no Idea what was going on, and it pretty much stayed that way for the entire game. Seeing the different spells and abilities from different jobs was fun. Although my Monk was totally overpowered, which I knew from the 9999 damage pretty early in the game. Overall, this was super fun until I beat the Cloud of Darkness(I really liked the BGM for the fight), then there was really nothing left for me.
I hadn't done any Onion Knight or secret stuff, and I never will.
Great remake of the classic NES title
I have played the original NES title (on a emulator ^_^), and it was pretty good, so I bought the NDS remake of it a little while back and here's my opinion about the game. The graphics are greater than I thought it would be at first glance at the box. The battles are traditional Final Fantasy turnbased. The job system is first introduced in this series, but with every job having to be leveled up, and half the reason I rated this with a 5, this game can easily become a tiring and monotonous hours of "grinding/leveling up" your characters. The story is o.k. for the game, but with HUGE gaps between them, it gets really annoying trying to proceed in the game. Where I haven't beat the DS version, I have seen enough of it to understand that the remake is almost the same as the NES version, but with 3D graphics, a different variation to the story, INSANELY difficult to get through dungeons due to the underleveled party (half the reason I can't continue anymore...), and the game just isn't as appealing as I thought it was going to be. Bottom line, get this game if you are a REAL BIG fan of the series and want a filler game (to all you FF fans, don't be mad at me I think that this, 2, 12, and 14 are the worst entries for the series) for when a better game comes out. So, buy this if you want, or just ignore it; your choice.
The introduction to the final fantasy class system
the introduction to the class system of what is FINAL FANTASY, including an amazing story line, awesome gameplay, treacherous bosses (it's sad that gilgamesh isn't in this game..), and fantastic music! BUY THIS GAME NOW IF YOU LIKE FINAL FANTASY 5 AND FINAL FANTASY X-2!!!!!!!!!!
great classic rpg
although like any final fantasy game, there is a lot of traveling and it gets redundant after awhile but this is still a classic rpg and a must have for hardcore final fantasy fans and rpg fans alike.
One of the best final fantasy
If you like final fantasy and haven't played this game, then you have to!!!! Although the final boss is a little tough, the rest of the game is fun.
I'm glad that the game has 3d graphics instead of the old FF games and the game is long to me.
The best RPG/turn-based game ever.
I bought this game several years ago, and have played it 50+ times. It is so good, you will want another copy so as not to delete old files.
hmm... something i'd never expect
it's great and all that square enix finally released a remake of the japan-exclusive final fantasy 3, but there are some flaws. when i first played the game, i was expecting to play as the onion knight (of course). i was plain wrong. you play as luneth and 3 others. i was expecting the battle animations to be better; luneth getting close to the enemy and striking it with her sword. instead, we get the same kind of attack animations found in the original 3 final fantasy games (nes versions). and there are hardly places were you could save, unlike the quicksave option. and now, because there are harly places to save the game, whenever i am defeated by monsters, i'd have to start over my pogress and start back at the beginning, so i'm not sure if there is lasting appeal. and you can't exactly skip cutscenes, either. and in certain places, after i open up the menu, i'd get lost and go the wrong way. why not add a navigational map and markers to tell you where to go? i'd much rather play any other final fantasy, but that doesn't mean that it is a bad game.
The missing piece is finally here!
The Final Fantasy name is synonymous with the word RPG. While US fans have played most of the games in the series, until 2006, Final Fantasy III was never released in the United States. Starting out, I was expecting another slow RPG with enhanced graphics. However, this is not the case. Final Fantasy III not only looks great, but the battle animations let the gamer have a deeper feeling for the game, and the job system is just awesome and has a lot of depth. Not only is Final Fantsy III a lost gem that has finally been found, but an absoulutely amazing one after a really long wait. This is one of the best turn-based RPGs on the DS, and is a must buy if you want to finish up your Final Fantasy collection.
BEST FINAL FANTASY GAME EVER!
This game is awesome, and I would highly recommend getting this game.
