Fantasy Life [ 3DS CIA ]
Embark on the adventure of your dream life as you craft, cast, fish, mine, battle and explore like never before. With the innovative Life system, your choices don’t just upgrade characters they help shape your journey. Explore a huge fantasy landscape beside surly dark paladins, slick pirate captains, regal princesses, and others who share your taste for the unknown. Fantasy Life Therein lies the secret of Fantasy Life’s success: there’s always tons of stuff to do and multiple ways to do it, and it’s all because of the Life Class feature. This clever game play mechanic combines Rune Factory’s life simulation/dungeon crawling with Final Fantasy V’s multi-tiered job system to create a quest structure so addictive that I found myself fishing and fighting well into the wee hours of the night, even when a mission was hard, or the story tedious. That’s not to say I disliked Fantasy Life’s story, it just has pacing issues. I enjoyed gathering people’s wishes so I could heal the world, and the tongue-in-cheek humor had me laughing throughout my 30-plus hours of playtime, about half of which was spent doing side missions (did I mention there’s lots of stuff to do?). The adventure gets off to a sluggish start though, and only slightly picks up the pace before it reaches its somewhat abrupt ending. It’s a shame since the story’s message is heartwarming. But even when my journey to save the world felt slow, the Life Class system was there to make the journey well worth it.
At first I dismissed Life Classes as fancy Rolodex that simply organize activities like fishing and fighting into little cubbyholes. Fantasy Life I couldn’t see how this feature made Fantasy Life any different from comparable life simulators like Rune Factory or Animal Crossing. But once I dug into each Life, I found a unique set of enjoyable challenges and skill sets designed to help me become the ultimate Paladin, Chef, or Wizard. For example, I could learn a new sword skill by slaying enemies on the battlefield as a Paladin, or raise my success as a Chef by playing a minigame where I rhythmically tapped the A button in order to whip up a meal before time ran out. I could even combine my Life skills to complete special tasks for people, like using my hunting skills to forage for honey, then using my prowess as a gourmet chef to make them a honey pudding. Being able to do so many different things in so many different ways kept things fresh and interesting, and I loved that I could swap between vocations at any time (there are 12 in all), since it meant I rarely had to do the same thing for too long.
