A fun mix between JRPG + Simulation game. Before you decide to invest in this game you need to understand exactly what this is. A lot of people compare it to Animal Crossing but it's more like Rune Factory or Disney Magical World if you've played those. There's a lot packed into this game so I'll try to briefly touch on everything without spoiling anything

- 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.

I had been looking forward to Fantasy Life since seeing the trailer at E3 2014, and it definitely lived up to my expectations. For the people who have been describing it as a cross between Zelda and Animal Crossing, that would probably be the best description of it. It has a lot of similarities to both titles, with a little bit more cuteness and more RPG elements thrown in. The maps are massive, and there are tons of things to do, from crafting and fishing, to fighting giant dragons and riding a horse. Similar to Animal Crossing, you get your own little house that you can decorate with things that you either buy from a merchant, or craft yourself as a carpenter. I have spent over 10 hours during the past two days on this game, and I have barely even scratched the surface. Anyone who loves Zelda and/or Animal Crossing will fall in love with Fantasy Life, and I'm so glad to have this title for my 3DS.

Was very excited for this game which was described to me as a cross between Animal Crossing and a RPG. It's fun, I should just get that out of the way. I'm enjoying playing it and I am glad I bought it.

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.

Fantasy Life is an excellent mix of sim and adventure/rpg, like Rune Factory without the tedium. The setting is quaint and cheerful without being overly childish. The combat, although not deep, is satisfying. Leveling up happens frequently enough for you to always feel rewarded for slaying monsters/cutting trees/catching fish/whatever. And here lies the best part of this game, variety. When you start the game you pick from one of twelve careers (referred to in game as your "life") which determines your skills, perks and what quests will be available to you. However your decision is not set in stone. You may change "life" at any time, and you even get to carry over skills you unlocked in your previous life. Tired of being a woodcutter? Go try your hand at being a miner for a while. Or perhaps become a wizard and learn some spells. There's no penalty for switching, in fact it's encouraged by the game, and you can always switch back. This keeps the game feeling fresh and offers you the freedom to choose what kind of game you want Fantasy Life to be.

In short I highly recommend everyone with a 3ds at least give Fantasy Life a shot
