complex and difficult RPG,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Bravely Default (3DS) (Video Game)
A Japanese-style RPG, probably the most complex handheld RPG ever produced, with excellent graphics and design, and an interesting storyline, at least at first. It does have problems, though. One is that character development poses problems. As usual, your characters can take on various jobs, and then gain abilities and experience in these jobs classes but....some of the job classes are only acquired very late in the game, and seem to be needed to defeat enemies towards the end. So, you've spent many hours with certain jobs, and have been successful up to this point in the game, only to find that the skills you've got are more or less useless, and you have to start again. What makes matters worse is that it seems that each character has to develop the job individually, so if you've got a level X something you can't transfer it to someone else. Frustrating.....I gave up after about 35 hours of play. To do all the things the internet guides tell you to do to finish the game seems to require hundreds of hours of play, but maybe there's some way round this. It looks nice, though, and is fun to play in the initial stages.
