- Life/Class System - There are 12 different classes your character can become. You can switch your class as much as you want as frequent as you want in the game. Certain quests will require you to be at a higher level within the class though so keep that in mind. You don't have to switch classes but it is highly recommended that you do (though you don't have to do all 12). Each class has their own specific quests so if you don't switch you'll miss a huge chunk of the game's content. Also classes benefit off each other. For example you can be a paladin (aka mercenary/knight whatever you'd call it) and then switch to blacksmith so you can make your own weapons and armor instead of buying them with dosh (in-game money).
- Story/Quests: The game is broken up into three things. Story quests, side quests and exploration. I'll be honest and say the story isn't that deep but it's pretty good and light hearted. There are tons of side quests that will sometimes distract you from the main story and you are free to explore the very vast map in game You will need to progress the story to open up more of the map but this is a game that will continue after you finish the story as long as there are quests you haven't done. Pure story quests (no sidequests or exploring) would take you about 16-20 hours so it's lengthy even if you do nothing else, but you'll certainly want to do other stuff.Read more ›
That said, it is not what I expected and there are aspects of the game which frustrate me. I thought this would be a RPG with Animal Crossing (i.e., sim) aspects. I think it's more accurately described as a RPG-themed sim. In other words, the actual RPG aspect, where you are working to complete quests to further a narrative, is almost nonexistent. The story requires almost no action nor thought on the part of the player. When a problem must be solved within the main storyline, for example, you'll see instructions written on the screen telling you what to do and a big flashing red arrow on your map telling you where to go to do it. Once you get to where you need to go, the game takes over and everything is acted out requiring the player only to push buttons to move the dialogue along.
I suppose some people will enjoy watching the story unfold while very occasionally being called upon to follow some instructions to get to the next step. I don't. It's boring and pointless even if the dialogue is often kind of funny. In fact, every time someone in the game praises my character for accomplishing a task, I roll my eyes. Because my character didn't actually DO anything other than stand around and follow instructions when necessary. There is no sense of accomplishment like you get with other RPG's when you have to solve a problem and you put your mind to it and figure out the solution.
BUT if I think of the game not as a cross between a RPG and a sim, but rather as a sim based on RPG's, then it's much better.Read more ›
In short I highly recommend everyone with a 3ds at least give Fantasy Life a shot
