Ratings and Reviews
Used to be a great game like FF Tactics...
This has been one of my favorite games over the last two years but I’ve finally had enough. This game was so similar to Final Fantasy Tactics, which I loved as a kid, however it has always been a gacha game (legalized child gambling). I understand the business model and it’s a norm on these platforms now. I have fallen for the trap and spent a few hundred on this game because of how long I have been playing. But, at this point all of that time and money put in, does not feel valued anymore and the support we have seen for this franchise has fallen off a cliff. If you are looking for a new game to play, you may want to play the free single player for a bit but then move on out before throwing any money into this game. It is not accessible to newbies.
Hopefully, Gumi will course correct as they have done in the past but this is getting a bit too much to handle at the moment.
Edit: Game has come a long way since this original review. Still not perfect and can be pretty time intensive if you are free to play but it still has me hooked.
Excellent quality. Excellent gameplay.
The current bundles have rainbow shards and rainbow diagrams. I don’t know if this was a thing before or if someone read my review and made it happen. My one disappointment has been rectified. Hopefully players will be able to obtain these items through means other than bundles, but it’s a blessing to have if you need them. Enhanced equipment and mastering jobs is essential for the characters in this game. I did favor FF Brave Exvius as old school Final Fantasy games are what I grew up on. Even though that game is very good, the gameplay and every aspect of this game feels superior. I definitely recommend both, and even as F2P you can definitely complete content. This game is a definite must for all who enjoy the tactics RPG genre.
If you like games like final fantasy tactics then you will love this game. I only wish they had generic materials you could amass to use in place of limited unit specific gear shards. So for those missing a few shards for one last equipment piece for a limited unit are not completely in the mud. Overall this game is top notch!
Great content but be careful of the unit you choose
Like many other free to play games, the top tier (those with highest stats) units for this game is heavily pay to win. BUT there are units, especially the protagonists, are free to play friendly and can get the job done. Pay attention to the events and daily quests they will help you earn Real money currency for drawing loot boxes.
For starters, raise Protagonists through the story and with units no more than natural 3 stars. They are easy to raise and will get you through out the most of the except the high level dungeons which is more likely where the negative reviews comes in as I agree the game can be unreasonable sometimes.
If you are aiming for free to play which means no penny is spent, take my advice DO NOT attempt to draw collaboration units (fate stay night units by the time I write this review). The only way to raise them is to draw duplicates from loot box which is where you will likely to spend real money with.
