In a fall filled lớn the brim with Final Fantasy media — A movie! An anime! A new mainline entry! — World of Final Fantasy is a cutesy, cameo-filled spinoff that tries khổng lồ be greater than the sum of its troubled parts. It tries khổng lồ live up to the Final Fantasy name, even as it gets bogged down in annoying throwbacks that the series has long since grown out of.

World of Final Fantasy’s long-winded, convoluted narrative follows the amnesiac, magically gifted twins Reynn and Lann. The duo wake up at the start of the game with minimal understanding of what"s going on. With the help of Tama, their walking, talking fox sidekick, and denizens both familiar & foreign, Reynn và Lann"s journey to lớn save their mother — và the world — in accordance with a controversial prophecy eventually gets under way.

The plotline"s a total bore, thanks to lớn its sibling leads. Despite their ignorance, the pair are can’t go without commentary for even a moment. While I welcomed their flurry of often self-aware jokes at first, their incessant banter later had me thankful there was a fast-forward button.

Once the story is under way, though, World of Final Fantasy offers several distractions from Reynn and Lann"s yapping. The biggest of these are the battles, which cosplay the core of the gameplay. Reynn & Lann have two special powers that mix them apart from the average role-playing game hero: They can switch between their average-sized human forms and smaller, chibi-style ones, and they can catch và harness the power of monsters called Mirages. Depending on if they"re tall or tiny, the siblings can stack up to lớn two monsters on their heads to create an adorable, if unstable totem pole.

Unsurprisingly, these quests are often where the trò chơi shines. Instead of following the same rote dungeon runs that drive the main storyline, the side missions include varied types of gameplay. In one, I raced across a bản đồ as an adorable version of Final Fantasy 13’s Lightning against a time limit toward a boss. Another included a charming, tough puzzle trò chơi starring Vivi và Terra (Final Fantasy 9 & 6, respectively). They"re excellent palate cleansers và more substantive ways of getting hands-on with fan hâm mộ favorites than in-battle cameos.

Champion quests are accessible whenever the player gets bored of dungeon crawling. Between those and the minutia of Mirage taming — not lớn mention a battle coliseum, which spotlights the fun intricacies of fighting — World of Final Fantasy offers a few diversions from the repetition of the main campaign. There"s still much khổng lồ be desired, considering the series" legacy of unforgettable characters and stories, but the variety of options & the pure joy of monster management bode for some deep pleasures.

Wrap Up: World of Final Fantasy brings originality to the franchise when it can get past all the nostalgia

World of Final Fantasy wants lớn be fan hâm mộ service for everybody, an almost impossible task in such a long-running, varied franchise. In that regard, the trò chơi may look lượt thích lighthearted filler on the surface. But those shimmers of something greater và World of Final Fantasy’s more original, modern elements are worthwhile, even if they don"t quite biến hóa for the hours of annoyances that pay lip service khổng lồ nostalgia.
