Game Vortex Review: Final Fantasy Fables: Chocobo's Dungeon

Matt Paddock reports:

''Final Fantasy Fables: Chocobo's Dungeon is pure Final Fantasy goodness, with all the trappings we've come to know and love over the years. Familiar characters make appearances in a new setting, the town of Lostime and its dungeons. The cinematics are high quality and the gameplay graphics are some of the best you'll see on the Wii right now. There is a simplicity to everything that speaks to the younger audience demo that Final Fantasy Fables: Chocobo's Dungeon is aiming to please, but that doesn't change the fact that this looks every inch the classic RPG that we fell in love with way back in the day.

The music and dialogue is also a standout. Spoken dialogue is everywhere and the characters' voices are cast very well. Chocobo, as the main character, doesn't have much to say but has his characteristic squawks and cheeps. The others you'll find in the town have triggered sequences that provide them with lots to say. The colorful setting really comes to life with the addition of good voice acting. The music is good enough that you'll turn up the sound to catch familiar tunes. Typical of earlier titles in the franchise, the style of music here is a mix of grand pieces that wouldn't sound out of place in an orchestra pit with jaunty, sweet tunes that seem well fitted to a small folk ensemble. Classic themes from previous games make an appearance here, much like sightings of familiar characters.''
