4 Another Great FF Gamecutegamesforgirls | 28/07/2008 | See all cutegamesforgirls's reviews (124)Top 100 Games Reviewer Boasting some of the best graphics on the DS, Final Fantasy 3 is certainly impressive. Luckily for us, it's also great fun to play. We're taken back to a time when only the elites could play the ridiculously hard games of that age and as such this is a very hardcore game. Remember how frustratingly hard Super Mario Bros was for NES? Final Fantasy will have you swearing and boiling over just like that. However, like Super Mario Bros, it still manages to be addictive and highly playable.The game reverts to the simple turn based action as a result of a random encounter which has worked for Square Enix for so long. You have 4 characters to command throughout the game, each with their own special abilities. Sound good so far? Well heres my main criticism. This is where the "Job" system comes into play. You assign your character a role (Warrior, Black Mage, Ninja etc) and they develop a special ability. Black Mages use black magic, White Mages use White magic. This means that you can't have say, a scholor use any magic because it will be rubbish. Also, it takes ages for a character to get settled into their job and use their weapons properly. This is annoying as you can't change jobs while in a dungeon because it invariably means you'll be killed. Also, this means there are less weapons for each character because only certain jobs use certain weapons.This may sound like Final Fantasy 3 isn't worth your time but I do recommend it because if the sheer playability which will keep you coming back. I got over the annoying jobs feature by just keeping my characters with the same jobs throughout the game and only changing when I was forced to (Some bosses are impossible without being a certain job). The feeling of satisfaction after making it through a particularly fierce dungeon is enough to warrant buying this and at such a good price, what have you got to lose? I'm just keeping my fingers crossed that Final Fantasy 4 won't have a Jobs system.
