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.

 Another Great FF Game

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.

 A true EPIC!

This game is an EPIC as far as DS games go... You start the game with limited abilities/ jobs/ party members, this soon changes when the game gets going and before you know it your 30 odd hours in struggling to beat the final bosses (it sucks your life away)

If you have played any FF turn based RPGs or similar and liked them I highly recommed this... Brilliant game especially for £18 now we just need FF4!!!

 GREAT GAME! ONE OF THE, IF NOT BEST RPG ON THE DS!

Buy It!
I am new to Final Fantasy and I didn't know what the heck was going on at the beginning but then I was introduced to the amazing game and amazing world of Final Fantasy. It's amazing and got brilliant gameplay and graphics witha good 50-60 hours (not joking!) worth of playtime.

SO WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?

BUY! BUY! BUY!,
Thanks, I hope this review was helpful

An excellent addition to the final fantasy series has finally laned outside Japan! If your a fan of the FF series you will click "add to basket" NOW! As well as finally bridging the gap between 2 and 4 it provides a long and depthy storyline with the bonus of customisable party members and cutest chibi styled charecters that you'll soon find yourself becoming very attached to!

 A Very Solid RPG

Most people buying this game will already be aware of the Final Fantasy series and the main aspects of an RPG. This follows the similar role-playing gameplay of battling, exploring new towns/dungeons, and making your characters stronger.

These are all done very well and, while there won't be much new to any diehard RPG-fan, the game is enjoyable throughout its 30+ hour lifetime.

The new job system is fantastic, you begin with around 6 jobs and unlock many more as you progress through the game. Changing jobs gives a slight penalty, which helps prevent job-changing every battle, however when assigning a character a new job there is not so much of a penalty that you are discouraged from switching every so often.

The storyline is decent, following a typical RPG pattern but never getting dull and repetitive. The battling is textbook turn-based RPG, with some very interesting boss battles. Some of the bosses can be very difficult, but can always be overcome with an extra hour or two of training.

The only reason I did not give this game five stars is because once you've gone through it the first time, there is little replay value. I can't see myself playing the game through again for a long time until the game will feel "new" again. However, the game's longevity more than makes up for it's lack of replay value.

If you want a game that is going to last you a long time and are a fan of RPGs or previous Final Fantasy games, this game is superb. An excellent RPG that is well worth buying.
