Long ago, a terrible war raged between two deities. Wielding magical weapons known as Furies, they sealed each other away and the remaining Furies were scattered throughout the world. Today, these ancient weapons are sought after by warriors known as Fencers.
When a young man named Fang obtains a Fury of his own, he gains an unlikely partner, and the course of his destiny is forever altered… A world of magic and adventure awaits you in Fairy Fencer F! Take charge of your destiny as you brave dungeons, defeat monsters, and travel the world to collect all 100 Furies. But be carefulthe Furies are coveted by many Fencers, good and bad. Pray these powerful weapons do not fall into the wrong hands.
Fairy Fencer F probably will not gain the same kind of following that the more satirical Hyperdimension games have garnered over the years, but it is by all rights a solid effort that manages to surprise in pleasant ways while still providing some familiar mechanics that make the title approachable.
It’s still not going to go down as a world class RPG that everyone should play, but If/Compa fans will get a lot out of it, and it does some interesting things with its mechanics that I think many JRPG fans will enjoy.
If anyone was ever curious to try one of the growing number of Western releases from Compile Heart, this would definitely be the game to try, especially now that it runs smoothly and carries a budgeted price.
It's far greater than the sum of its parts and should please all fans of JRPGs.
There’s a lot to love about this game, even with its lackluster story and presentation. But with its incredible music, awesome characters, and fairly deep customization, every anime and RPG fan should definitely give this game a chance now that it’s more widely available.
A solid JRPG with an addictive battle system which is let down by the repetitive plot, minor technical glitches and generally being way too easy.
A very simple jRPG that answers the question what would happen if Tales series was done with even less money. [08/2015, p.67]
