Yeah when I bought my ds and saw that final fantasy III was coming out for it it further confirmed that my money was well spent. This game great at every thing it does have but, gets hurt by the things it doesnt have. The gameplay is some of the best turned based action in an rpg. Mostly, because this game help event the turn-based traditional rpgs as we know it. The jobs are pretty cool and they have seperate lvl from you character lvl.(So you character can be lvl.20 and lvl. 30 blk mage) It just wish they had the depth like in Final Fantasy Tactics on ps maybe they didnt want to make it to complicated for younger audiences but hey its rated Teen and some higher level jobs you wonder why to switch to them especially job lvl dont convert over for instance you'll have blk mage that can eventually do lvl 1 to 7 spells but later on you become a Magus which (your black mage will probably be about lvl. 50 to 65) is supposedly stronger black mage which can spells up lvl 8 but the job lvl starts all the way over lvl1which your pretty much at the end of the main quest so the question lies do I want to start training a new job to eventually lvl8 spells at the end of the main quest. . Battles can get pretty hectic sometimes even after training this a good and a bad thing. Im probably pretty much an expert when comes to rpgs so I like it when its a challenge then train beat the crap out of monster that was once hard. I have died a few times in this game but not because I zoomed through without training its just this game has uneven difficulty levels. In almost all rpgs you fight monster in area then at the end of an area its a boss. And you can pretty much tell when you're ready for the boss when you can destroy the harder monsters in the area with hardly any problems but game is different Ive trained and destroyed the hardest monsters in a area only to get to a boss that destroyed me. And this wouldnt even be bad actually probably make me happy since I like rpgs that actually that give a challenge if not for the fact that you cant make savepoint in a dungeon that you can go back to if you die. Only on the world map are you allowed to make savepoints that you can go back to if you die. And dungeons arent exactly small either so if you see the boss and want to save you have go all the way back through the dungeon which is severly fustrating consider that most dungeons you will have atleast have 15 random fights plus another 15 to get back and sometimes you do all that only to find out you still arent strong enough. So You might be in a dungeon for hour and half or more (mostly later dungeons) going through it and training thinking you're almost 100% sure you can win If you just put on you best fight and still lose and not really the point you lost its the point if didnt go back and save you have do all that training over plus more to continue in the game. Foremost most people who are not diehard rpgist that would be the end of the adventure for them atleast till they are done being pissed off with the game which can take a very long time days, months, and maybe never especially since is the not thing in the story that keeps you into it. Since its in 3D and the beginning trailer looked better than some ps1 FMV so I was hoping for a FMV cutscene only find out none of the cutscenes in the beginning movie are put into the actual game which was a real disappointing since they story is pretty dry and goes straight to the point so you dont know your character only the picture you have in your mind. This is defiantly a game you play for the gameplay and to see the next boss you can pound. Dont let that stop you if you want this game though it still great rpg. And if you train till you cant get anymore good exp from the monsters in that area you should do pretty good. But for safety either run back to the world map save and run back to the end of dungeon or later on in the game use item to leave dungeon save and run back to the end of dungeon. Either way its frustrating. Graphically the game looks pretty good they could of made it a little smoother but hey I'll give them credit for changing a 2d to 3d on a handheld. This is a game that will last atleast 30 hours or more. The value in my opinion is kind of steep $40.00 it should be a $35.00 game but square nonetheless knows that ppl would $50 if they asked for a final fantasy game thats 3D and new. I recommend this game to those who want to add on to final fantasy collection, those who love turn-based rpg gameplay, and die hard turn-based rpgist who want a challenge. If you expecting deep story or atleast a twist in the story you wont it find here.
