Be warned though, the game use a lot of Cutscenes as a background video during the levels, for example playing the FF9 Ending track basically shows you the ENDING cutscene video, i have played and finished every single FF Game, so they can't possibly ruin anything for me, but if you played few FF and still waiting to play many other FFs there will be a lot of spoilers for you in this game.
Basically if you are a final fantasy fan who does enjoy the FF Music then this is a must have !, I'll leave you with this quote from Nobuo Uematsu himself which he posted in his twitter after trying the game.
"I played Theatrhythm Final Fantasy for the first time today. Not too shabby! As I remembered various things from the past 20 years, I was reduced to tears. FF music fans should definitely play it. Won't you cry with me?"
An EMS is an event stage and there are fewer of those than any other stage, one per Final Fantasy title (13 in total). The EMS takes cinematic scenes from their applicable game and sets it to the games main theme or something similar, like Waltz for the Moon for FFVIII or Suteki da ne for FFX. Once you gain a certain amount of Rythmia (points earned after each and every level) you unlock the EMS videos in a theater mode and the big miss here is how the videos themselves weren't re-made or updated enough to support 3D visuals. You get depth with the 3D on but no actual 3D and, the image sort of has a phantom-shift, after-image thing going on.
FMS features field music and while there's one per final fantasy, there are extra ones available to be unlocked through the Chaos Shrine Mode and, gaining more and more Rythmia (not counting DLC, available now if you have an E-Shop card handy).Read more ›
This game is really hard to review because of its diverse gameplay options and style but. . .
Visuals are very nice, and very clear 9/10 --Visuals are hard to focus on during gameplay
Music selection was excellent 8/10 --Some players may be upset that their favorite song isn't included
Story line is, so far, absent 7/10 --A story line would add little to the experience, maybe even ruin it slightly, but it couldn't have hurt to have tried to run some kind of summary of each game (This section is likely to be updated as I continue to play)
Customization is really interesting 9/10 --Using magic and other specials during battle is interesting, but often times, at least initially, it is hard to notice their presence during the battle/field/story stages
Leveling seems a bit fast 8/10 --Fortunately there are many characters to level, and maybe even some secret ones
Rhythmia is an interesting addition 9/10 --Gives a powerful reason to keep playing your favorite songs, and remembering the past
Overall, this is still a music game primarily, but it still succeeds slightly in allowing character progression and other common Final Fantasy RPG elements.
So whether you enjoy playing music from the first Final Fantasy games, or the most recent, there is probably something here for you to enjoy.
I havn't played many of the FF games personally, but I am at least partially familiar with the music and have watched friends play before. I've also been interested in playing a rhythm game though I havn't played many before. This game marries the beautiful music with a fun game to make a really fun experience.
The game is great for both veteran music gamers and those new to the genre. The game explains how to play very well, and while it starts out fairly easy, there are 2 more levels of difficulty you eventually unlock. So if you find the game too easy, just stick with it until you get past expert!
The gameplay is largely tapping, sliding, and holding your stylus on the bottom screen to cues that run along the top. There are 3 styles of gameplay- Field, Battle, and Event. These are all similar, but have a different feel, which I really like about the game. There is also 3 modes of play- Series, Challenge, and Chaos Shrine. Series lets you play a string of songs together back-to-back, and Challenge lets you pick out specific songs. Both get higher difficulties unlocked with play. Chaos Shrine lets you find "Dark Notes", which is 2 unknown songs together which can be found by playing or in Streetpass (where they can be shared). This mode is good to grind for items and shards for unlocking characters. In Chaos Shrine you can also play local multiplayer, which is quite fun.
I really liked the RPG aspect they added to the game, which I think enhances the desire for replay and was one of the main reasons I picked it up.Read more ›
