I might give this one a courtesy play if we haven't gotten it in the US in a few months. I’ll grant them this though the enemy sprites despite being lame in design do make good use of the SNES’s large colour pallet and are quite colourful as are most of the backgrounds. Final Fantasy Mystic Quest, released as Mystic Quest Legend in PAL regions and as Final Fantasy USA: Mystic Quest (ファイナルファンタジーUSA ミスティッククエスト, Fainaru Fantajī USA Misutikku Kuesuto) in Japan, is a role-playing video game for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System.The game was released as a spin-off to Square's Final Fantasy series of video games. A portal is opened. Submit a review and let your voice be heard. Most of Mystic Quests graphics could quite easily pass for an NES game with slightly more colours. @bro2dragonsthanks. @Link79: Simpler than Mario RPG, actually. Since Final Fantasy II was ported to the SNES format at the last minute (it was originally set to be an NES title) Square has somewhat of an excuse for it’s mostly mediocre visuals. © 2020 GAMESPOT, A RED VENTURES COMPANY. Neither is it a Final Fantasy game. I think if given the choice between random battles or this binge-like overdose of fighting groups of 10 identical monsters at a time for xp, I would choose random battles. Final Fantasy Quest is one of the best SNES rpg's - I had a great time playing this again. It might have been better served if it had been titled something else, but that's strictly speaking from a sales standpoint, which doesn't affect it personally at all. The chain of time is broken. The enemies are all very well done and even have several sprite poses that show them degenerating as they take damage. The entire game takes about 8 hours or so to complete, which is of course incredibly short for an RPG. @Stuffgamer1: That's because it wasn't made by Akitoshi Kawazu and the remake of SaGa 2 for the DS was supposedly even more difficult and it looks like they're bringing SaGa 3 in line with the first two. No character development equals not good. Like I said the music isn’t horrible hell it beats most of the game music out there but for the most part it’s nothing stand out either and once the novelty wears off it becomes too repetitive to keep your attention. Those looking for another FF2/4 or FF3/6 will be disappointed. For example, there are no random battles and you can save the game wherever and whenever you want, including when you’re standing right in front of a boss.

Mystic Quest is essentially a spin off game in Square’s hugely popular Final Fantasy series. Final Fantasy: Mystic Quest is certainly not a bad game, but its low level of difficulty and overly predictable storyline might prove to be a bit too minimal for long-time Final Fantasy fans. Even outfitting the characters with weapons and magic spells is carried out for you with newly-acquired equipment basically replacing the old. C'mon, how many games are this good/fun? Initially, I was disappointed, but after a couple of plays (since the game isn't so long, you can play it a lot), I grew to really like it. I'll definitely pick it up. It actually does well what it sets out to do – offering a role-playing adventure that's appropriate for gamers who've never touched an RPG before. It was, however, supposedly designed with Americans in mind...which actually comes off MORE insulting since it was made by the Japanese developer. However, I usually don't believe any hype unless I have played it for myself. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED. I just wanted to say, that this is not a Final Fantasy game. Sure I was surprised at its simplicity, but I assumed it was that way on purpose. The result is a poorly-designed game with no challenge or replay value. This really is a one of a kind game. Great review!Lol at the "CORBIE" in the screenshots. I recommend it for anyone that is a big collector like I am. Of course gamers who've never really given the series a chance or those who've found the standard releases a bit too difficult and complicated might want to check this far more accessible title out. One game they did not make a mistake on is a game called Final Fantasy: Mystic Quest. Explore a markedly different chapter in the Final Fantasy's crystal legend. These games were designed for the younger less skilled gaming crowd. However, if you're just looking for a fun way to spend a rainy afternoon and some SNES nostalgia to boot, this is a winner! the battle system, different weapons you use, and I personally lik...

You won't have to roam around on a world map in this adventure, instead you'll simply jump from one area to the next as you progress through the game. Please log in or register to continue. It's so much more fun poking around a tricky maze using Zelda-style equipment to advance without having to worry that each step brings you closer to another spontaneous fight that'll eat up the health and magic points you're trying to save for the boss at the end. Now I know that some people will try and tell you that this game is good or even great but personally I think they are just biased because this is a Final Fantasy game (well sort of anyway). Reviewed in the United States on July 6, 2013. He might like this. Remember Nintendo’s “Mario’s Early Years” series of games? Its not fair and it shouldn't happen but it does. These monsters are located with painful predictability around anything that’s important to the quest: There will inevitably be hordes of them clustered around a treasure chest, or strategically blocking a door or passageway so that even though the battles aren’t random they are still quite frequent and necessary. The characters that join your party, as well as the hero himself, are all one-dimensional in the extreme, and will join and leave your party with a level of abruptness and nonchalance that makes caring about them or their fates very hard. Advancing is a cinch as you can save anywhere, open the same treasure chest to receive useful items a million times (not that you’ll likely need them though), and most enemies have very low AI. Once it's labeled with th... Read Full Review, Final Fantasy Mystic Quest (SNES) Final Fantasy Mystic Quest is the black sheep of the Final Fantasy family.

Read honest and unbiased product reviews from our users. I remember buying this almost 20 years ago because it was the "budget" Final Fantasy priced at $39.99. Jello.". But for times when I want a relaxing jaunt through an adventure, this one will do quite nicely. Appreciate it for what it is-- FF for beginners. It is the worst final fantasy game ever. My only experiences with RPGs are the Pokémon games and Super Mario RPG. I would however recommend Mystic Quest for children, since it does a great job of holding the gamer’s hand all the way through and I enjoy the idea of giving the kids a sword & sorcery fantasy plot instead of drenching them with Barney or Mary Kate & Ashley. It pretty much depends on how much control you want, something that should at least make the game accessible to a wide audience of gamers. C'mon, how many games are this good/fun?". Taken into account this game was made as an "introductory" RPG for beginners, you'll find it has a lot going f. Squaresoft! But instead, the final bosses are just as easy, if not easier, than the earlier ones. But it really isn't. Unfortunately Square Soft carries on this trend with their Final Fantasy Mystic Quest game for the SNES. The millennium. Unfortunately, Mystic Quest would've been boring if it were a TV show, let alone a game. Anyone who holds themselves to standards of difficulty (never wants to play anything too easy) and had already played previous FF releases would've DEFINITELY been disappointed by Mystic Quest. It was not until FFII and III that they gained popularity. Mystic Quest follows the same basic style of game play as Final Fantasy and is probably most closely comparable to Final Fantasy II/IV (one of Chrono’s all time favorite SNES games) and throughout the adventure (or quest if you will) remains very reminiscent of it’s predecessor. An awesome game that only appeals to a very small amount of people and isn't bought by anyone else did a crap job - even if those few people said it was the best game ever, if it didn't sell well, the publishers won't be happy. Final Fantasy Quest is one of the best SNES rpg's - I had a great time playing this again. Unfortunately nothing in the game is very detailed looking and it suffers a lot from the square syndrome as I call it. It’s nice to have at least eight.
