Kotaku: Dissidia: Final Fantasy Import Review

Kotaku writes:

"When we were children, we wanted two things: a Super Mario Bros. movie and a Final Fantasy fighting game; we got one of those things, and it made us wish we were dead.

Today, fifteen years later, we have the other one. Does it make us wish we were dead - or does it make us wish we were more alive?

This is a difficult question to answer. Come inside, then, and watch me run confused circles around myself as I attempt, with great vigor, to analyze Dissidia: Final Fantasy, a veritable cornucopia of aesthetic competence, attention to detail, affectionate fan service, and ever-present, cascading, waterfall-like arithmetic. Shucks, forget analysis - I'll be lucky if I can even describe it accurately without punching myself in the face on accident."

The story is too old to be commented.

"THAT SAID, despite thoroughly disliking his game, I enjoyed playing it for around thirty hours. Does that sound impossible? Maybe it does."

every time they give a favorable review to a Sony game console.

@1.2 - Yeah it's part of their contract at Kotaku. Also if they do give a good review, they have to make it sound as bad as possible and at the end write - but it's good.

ok so in short, the bad things about this games are that there IS a story and the combat system is complex...

damnit Kotaku...

ChampIDC3579d ago

Well, being overly complex can definitley be darn confusing. Having not played it, I can't tell you if that's the case.

And story...well, if it's not a compelling story, they'd be better off without it. Once again, can't tell you.

From what I've seen, the game looks cool, but I can't really tell if it plays well or not.

Man, I feel like I don't know anything after typing this.

i've got a copy of the game and got really confused with the review, he hated it but he liked it? i've gotta say that the system is complex when you try to edit a character but on the battle system it's not, to have only 2 attacks, one that damages the HP and one that damages the brave point (this will be the one that you'll use to damage an hp). and to have a japanese copy wasn't really a problem for me. the review is just stupid, go buy the game when it comes out.

This isn't exactly the first Final Fantasy fighting game......apparently Kotaku doesn't remember Ergheiz.

Willio3578d ago

i remember trying to climb up the 100 levels in Ergheiz. The arcade battle was fun though.
