Nintendo Life writes: "One word sums up the gameplay in the latest Final Fantasy spin-off for WiiWare - deep. There's absolutely no way you'll be disappointed with the sheer number of things to consider throughout the game. If you are, at least you should be satisfied by the large number of individual stages and polished presentation in My Life as a Darklord. Although the game is extremely addictive and represents great value for money (the less said about the generally-unnecessary DLC the better), the same general formula does exist for every level, so repetition may be an issue for those not captivated by the genre, and more intuitive controls could have easily been implemented. Nevertheless, we're more than confident that you won't regret giving WiiWare's latest strategy title a spin".
