It looks like Final Fantasy Legends III, but it feels like Final Fantasy IV. Characters are standardized and there’s a heavier emphasis on characterization. I haven’t beaten it, but it was my favorite Final Fantasy Legend. You have a cool time travelling ship and you have actual levels. Oh, and you can jump! O_O
The system is very similar to Final Fantasy Legend II’s, except that now, each monster is displayed. This means that you’ll face less monsters per battle, but that doesn’t mean it’s any easier. It’s hard. Brutal even. I haven’t beaten it because I’m a foul pansy.
Graphics-wise, very little has changed from its previous two entries. The ship also looks like a giant tower instead of a ship. Unless I’m confused.
Sound is good, although I honestly remember Final Fantasy Legend II’s battle theme more. So, it’s really standard.
The story is pretty good for an early Gameboy RPG. You’re training for god knows what until disaster strikes and you gotta strike back at it. And so bigger stuff happens and you’re going around trying to rebuild your cool time travelling ship which you eventually get to fly (and looks like a ship). I never got to the end because this game isn’t easy and I haven’t played it since high school.
Out of all the Final Fantasy Legend games, if there’s only one you should play, it could probably be this one. It’ll be the most familiar and easier to grasp than FFL2. It’s still pretty outdated and you’ll probably go to sleep at night in fetal position, sucking your thumb. Or I remember it wrong.
This German translation is nearly complete. The font has been optimized and is now easier to read. Due lack of space, the skills and attacks of monsters are still untranslated. All necessary characters and symbols have been included to make gameplay better.
