Ratings and Reviews
High Praise to FFBE
I installed this game when it was launched just over two years ago and it has been my favorite guilty pleasure ever since. It has so much to it that I love from the golden age of Final Fantasy, the character sprites are nostalgic and very well done, and it has a surprisingly active player community that supports it with daily content, tutorials, reviews, etc. the fans love this game and it is easy to understand why. I have payed money on accession to purchase extra in-game currency but it is few and far between. I see this as a game that I am more than willing to pay and support especially considering the countless hours of enjoyment I have garnered from playing it as well as participating in the community. Unlike so many other gotcha games, it is incredibly free-to-play friendly. In fact, I didn’t spend a penny on it until after the game had been out for just under a year and I was able to grind through all the content (and there is a whole lot of content). Nothing is locked behind a pay wall and the developers are very generous with their gifts. All told, I am a super-fan and will be continuing to show my support for the game and it’s community by attending their annual convention in Long Beach CA later this year. Great job guys and thanks for crafting a supremely entertaining digital experience. Now bring on the next FFIV event! It is my favorite.
Fun but Frustrating
The game itself is great. People complaining about having to pay to enjoy the game are either impatient or can’t control their impulse to buy. Strategy is just as important as top units. And that includes building out the units you have strategically and planning your teams. Some of the best units are limited, so of course you can’t expect to get them unless there’s a banner. Recently I was disappointed not to get a couple must-have, but limited banner units. Yet around the same time, I managed to pull Tidus and Aileen. Both rainbow units. I spent nothing.
So why only 3 stars? I’m frustrated with GUMI’s quality control and how they’ve structured their updates. I’ll give them credit for trying to fix issues quickly. But why are there always so many? And the thing I hate most is the weekly maintenance. Too frequent and for too long. Do other games have to put up with this? I’ve played other mobile games, including a couple of other gacha games, and I’ve never experienced this before? Is it just me? I’m okay with a couple hours here and there. But seriously? After 10 hours of last night’s “maintenance”, they’ve extended it for further emergency maintenance until who knows when. This isn’t the first time.
I suppose the upside is that we get lots of compensation gifts. 🙄
Long time player - Unhappy
I have been playing this game for two years. Though the game is inherently good, the company running it has been slowly eroding the confidence I, and others, have in this game. Of course the main premise of this game is gacha. A new system implemented about a month ago requires two copies of the same rare unit to evolve it to its strongest level (7*). In order to offset for the much lower likelihood of pulling two units, the Japanese origin of this game implemented a “unit of choice” summon. This allowed all 5 star base (e.g. rare) units to be pulled after collecting 10 tickets. In the Japanese version of this game, you can get two per mog event (monthly event). Global a first version of this only allows 1 ticket to be summoned. This essentially makes a unit of choice unit obtainable every YEAR rather than half a year. And then the truncated the pool from ALL 5 star units to only the select few that can be upgraded to 7 star. What if the player wants a specific unit for nostalgia, team composition, or their trust mastery? That coupled with very stingy daily log in rewards, poor communication, and various bugs (some even known from the first content roll out in the Japanese version) are causing me to write this review. I’ve been playing daily for about two years, unless things drastically change for the better my time with this game will end. Strongly consider before downloading and investing in this game.
