It’s safe to say I am addicted to Bravely Default, more than I ever imagined possible. I was excited for this game ever since I heard it way back when it had the unusual title of Bravely Default: Flying Fairy.
Now that the game is out I have a few things to say. First off the game is amazing! more than I ever thought possible and I’ve only played the DEMO!
The game has just arrived but it’s a Christmas present so I will have to wait until next Wednesday to play the full game however I don’t mind waiting. In fact I wanted to complete the actual demo first.
Let me just say the demo is HUGE, it’s by far the biggest demo I have played but this is also because I wanted to do everything on it and finish it to get the bonuses for when you start the main game (if you do stuff in the demo you unlock sets in the proper game but I’ll keep it spoiler free and not tell you what they are).
I never really played it for that reason though, it’s just so fun I wanted to do everything. The job system is amazing and when you level up the Valkyrie and make every character in your party have the ability to JUMP this is nothing short of awesome!
In the battle you can speed up the gameplay so when you tell everyone to JUMP it looks great and it does insane damage. If you have played other games in the Final Fantasy or Dragon Quest series then Jobs will be familiar to you.
I’ll not go into much more detail than this as this is just a quick summary of the demo, in time I will write a full review as this game needs one.
The world map reminds me of Ni Nu Kuni which is a great thing. I’ve managed to play the demo for 11 hours and 29 minutes!! God knows how long the main game will be if you complete everything!
I love the game so much I mastered the jobs even in the demo
I did do everything in the demo, including getting all jobs to the max level, getting all characters to level 20. The maximum that the demo will let you achieve.
It’s save to say I am addicted to this game and my 3DS right now. Hardcore RPG fans should love this title and I definitely recommend you try the demo if you have a 3DS.
This is the Final Fantasy I have waited for, it’s almost Final Fantasy in everything but the name however I will need to play the full game to fully be able to decide this as in the demo you don’t really get any of the story.
I look forward to Christmas day, you all know what I will be playing and I urge you to join me!
