Product Description

FINAL FANTASY EXPLORERS is an action-role playing adventure exclusively on the Nintendo 3DS system. Either through solo play or with up to three other Explorers, players can dive into dungeons to collect crystals scattered throughout the world while battling classic FINAL FANTASY enemies. FINAL FANTASY EXPLORERS focuses on cooperative play with friends and utilizes a refined party system allowing Explorers to master over 20 new and familiar jobs, including Knight, Monk, Black Mage and White Mage, to defeat the realm's mightiest monsters and even recruit them for battle. Players will have the ability to call upon the powers of eidolons like I frit and Bahamut, as well as transform into other legendary characters from the FINAL FANTASY series via the Trance feature. Story: The world is on the brink of war over its reserves of crystals, the planet's chief source of power. Players must band together to form an elite squad of Explorers on an island rich in crystals, braving hordes of monsters in hopes of conquering a newly discovered Grand Crystal - every Explorer's dream.

The game is finally out after about 1 year of being released in Japan. This game will elicit obvious comparisons to monster hunter and while there are similarities they are two very different games. The game charges you with being an explorer, trying to obtain crystals which have become a source of power in the game world. Shortly after crash landing on the island due to everyone's favorite dragon, the player is equipped with a weapon, some armor and a few quests to get the lay of the land. Unlike monster hunter this game has one huge interconnected map which can be traversed initially only by foot but within a short while you are given an airship to instantly warm to certain parts. It ranges from lakes, volcanoes, meadows and underground ice caverns. What this games lets you do is pick from any of the job classes many are familiar with, including warrior, thief, white mage, black mage, etc. The job classes can be easily switched are there are a multitude; while you initially start with 3 basic ones [warrior, white mage, black mage] the game lets you take quests to unlock more. Each job is limited to specific types of skills e.g black mage is limited to black magic etc. The draw of the game is letting the player experience these in real time and let you essentially roleplay as many of the series heroes and villains via armor sets and weapons, which do look nice [an early example is sephiroth's armor set].
One annoying problem I have with the game however, is the tediousness of the quests at times. To obtain sephiroth's armor set you must obtain 10 of an item that is a quest reward for one particular quest. This is not good design, and in my eyes, is a cheap way of adding "gameplay". Most quests are gathering/hunting and the monsters are varied. There are a lot of things to fight.

I'd been hyped about this game since I heard about it last august and pre-ordered it right away. It was released in Japan in 2014 so this is just the english version of it. The DLC that was released in Japan seem to be included in the game. I have played roughly 10 hours of the game so far and am nowhere near completing it.

You may have heard that this is somewhat like monster hunter but don't go thinking this is anything like the experience you had with monster hunter. I think more or less this is true. I find the targeting, movement, and abilities much easier and more intuitive to use. I do not use the circle pad pro for this (yet) BUT it is compatible with it.

Features of the game:
- You start as a freelancer job and unlock several after you complete the tutorial phase. You unlock more jobs later through various means.
Pros:
- A ton of stuff to do. You can get all (and multiple) of the available monsters to summon and fight with you, max out all 21 (or so?) jobs' abilities and weapons, make all the stuff in the game, and lots more.
- Online play, local co-op, and solo play. You can set up rooms detailing your objectives and gate it based on what content the other people have cleared so far.
- You can leave the city hub without a quest just to gather items and kill monsters free-style.
- The crystal surge system is pretty neat.
- Your abilities can gain "mutations" that add special traits to them.

Cons:
- No 3D functionality (small con really, 3D gives me a headache sometimes!)
- Probably no future updates (it's been out a year already in Japan so..)

I'll edit this if I find more cons really since I'm so early into the game.
My impression of it is if you really liked the feel of FFXI you'll like this. If you like games where you kill monsters over and over and make weapons and armor out of their drops you'll like this.
Cons:

The game is kind of slow and repetitive. That being said if your planning on sending 8 plus hours playing a game this isn't it. I play it on the subway in 30-45 mint spurts and in that regard I like it. You can pick it up play a bit, it auto saves after every quest. nice travel game.

Not quite what you would expect from a Final Fantasy Game. The game play itself can be fun but quickly becomes repetitive and you don't get the immersive story line I've come to expect from a FF game. Now this is a bit of my own fault, I should have researched better instead of assuming it fell in the with the rest of the FF games. But that being said the overall game was a bit disappointing. It seems to be a rehash of all the other mind numbing job games. Take a bounty , kill the monsters, return to town. And for a game with the word explorers in the title there really wasn't a lot to explore. Overall repetitive quests, very little exploring, and a not so great travel system make this game a fun novelty for a few hours at best.

I like this game like I like Fruit Stripe Zebra bubblegum; the flavor is delicious at first but the novelty wears quickly. This is not a horrible game by any means, it's just not anything special. There's little to no story and it's very forgettable. That being said, I put 18 hours into the game and do not regret it. This game is designed for die-hard Final Fantasy fans who want to dress up as their favorite character from the series. If you're looking for depth, look elsewhere. If you want a fun yet shallow Final Fantasy fix, this is for you. Don't pay over $20 though.
