Product Description

Product Description


Manufacturer's Description

Protected by the crystals of light, the once peaceful land has forever been changed by the great tremor. Without warning, the earthquake pulled the crystals into the earth, upsetting the world's fragile balance. It seems as if all hope is lost but as the Gulgan prophecy foretold, four souls blessed with the light shall once again restore balance to the world.

Near the small village of Ur, fate guides Luneth to a sentient crystal that changes his life forever. As the light of the crystal fades, Luneth embarks on a journey to seek three others who share his destiny to search for the remaining crystals, and fight the battle of light and darkness.

After seventeen long years, Final Fantasy III finally sees an official release outside of Japan. However, unlike previous games, Final Fantasy III has been completely reworked. This is more than just a port with enhanced graphics. Final Fantasy III includes some new secrets and side quests in addition to its graphical overhaul. Final Fantasy III may be just about enough to please some hardcore fans, but was the wait really worth it? Well, yes, but the game isn't perfect.

The storyline of Final Fantasy III is entirely too simple. The crystals are losing their powers and there are only four warriors that can come forth and save the world from falling into darkness. Sixteen years ago this was a pretty standard story, but when compared to your average RPG today, and current Final Fantasy games, the storyline to Final Fantasy III is a joke. There's nothing in this story that screams epic, and the characters involved aren't developed very well. Luckily, we can let it slide because its sixteen years old.

Gameplay wise, Final Fantasy III is pretty similar to most RPGs of today. You'll go roaming through dungeons and towns getting into random battles. There are a few quirks to the game that the DS utilizes. You'll find moments where you'll have to zoom into certain objects for you to examine. It should also be noted that you can use the touch screen almost exclusively in the game. Using the stylus you can make your character run in the direction you want him to, by gliding it across the screen. Taping on things makes your character examine it, and ultimately this is how you open chests and talk to people. It works out, but it feels really clumbsy at times. If you're looking to get through a dungeon with little hassle, just stick to the directional buttons.

Final Fantasy 3 is the only game in the series that had never been given a western release until now, but if you've ever played any versions of the old 2-D Final Fantasies, you will have a pretty good idea what to expect - lots of random battles, exploration, bosses and dungeon crawling. Although the underlying template of the old game is still in place, all of the graphics have been given a complete 3-D overhaul, making this one of the prettiest games to appear on the DS so far.

FF3's twist is the job system, which I can vaguely remember was also used in FF5. Each of the four characters starts as a freelancer (a generalist), but you can assign them to particular specialties, changing their abilities, appearance and the way they level up. This leads to some interesting choices in how best to customize your party, since characters learning multiple jobs will level up more slowly than those who specialize in a single class.

The plot is fairly unfocussed and generic compared with later instalments, though the characters have been given names and more personality than in the original version. In an interesting twist, the world you start in is not the world in which the majority of the story takes place.

You can control the game entirely with the stylus, but it's frankly a lot easier to put it away and use the face buttons. It also fails to make full use of the upper screen. This is definitely an old-school game. The difficulty curve is pretty steep, and there's at least one spot where you're unlikely to progress unless you've read the manual. But it's very playable in short bursts, and one of the best DS-specific RPGs to date (although a similar DS remake of the more epic Final Fantasy 4 is now in the works).

Final Fantasy III, as most may know, was the only Final Fantasy game that failed to reach North America. Well now it haas been revived, and it's better than ever before!

The "improved"

1) Final fantasy has pushed the DS's graphics to the limit. Though the figures may not be crystal clear, and though it may seem slightly pixelish, it's probably the best you'll ever get for the Nintendo DS. FFIII is completely 3D, a step up from it's original, and the character changes appearence as you change his/her job!

2) The job system is what solely drives this game. As some may have read, yes, there are 279841 different party combinations. Obviously, this opens up many doors and many strategy. FFIII incorperates these 23 jobs in a smart way as well. Don't be suprised when some job adjustments must be made to defeat a certain boss. Your party can be all fighting, or all magic, all range, or all skills, or a mix of any! Jobs are earned when crystals are discovered, and you will find a use for each of them.

3) FFIII can be played entirely with the touch screen, or entirely with the buttons, so you can use either method whenever you want. FFIII complements the DS's touch screen capability quite nicely; being able to use it to select moves is much better than the buttons.

4) FFIII is also Wi-Fi compatible. In it, players can send messages to other players global, using an internet port. It isn't much, but it's something!

5) You may name all of your characters, and play as any or them, any time! I like that freedom.

6) Dungeons actually offer a challenge. A step up from the boring 1 way dungeons, FFIII literally has a maze of many opening and secrets to be unlocked.
