Fantasy Life 

 

Fantasy Life takes a little bit of Zelda, a little bit of Animal Crossing, and a little bit of Ultima Online and mixes it altogether on this Nintendo 3DS cartridge. We can add furniture to our rooms (like Animal Crossing). We can go out and fight a variety of monsters (like Zelda). We can pick what jobs we want to do and level them up(like Ultima Online).

I am willing to pay twenty to maybe twenty-five dollars for Fantasy Life. There is no way this hand held video game is worth forty dollars. Nintendo will need a price drop before Fantasy Life becomes worth it for families. The negatives in Fantasy Life bring its value down. We rented it so we could purchase better video capture gear.

Fantasy Life shoves goddess worship down the throats of American families who believe in God. How many hundreds of times have we asked Nintendo nicely to be inclusive of Christians in their games? Close to a decade later they continue to shove the goddess worship down our throats. It is not needed in Fantasy Life, and hurts it overall. They could have made that character a saint, nun, or something more friendly to the super majority of Americans.

The biggest selling point in Fantasy Life is the twelve different jobs. New skills are earned in the jobs when certain milestones are reached. Working any of the jobs up to Master takes time, dedication, and completing a lengthy list of quests. There are also butterfly quests in Fantasy Life that progress the story along.

As quests are completed we grow levels in a variety of different ways. I loved leveling up the Bliss because it would grant me some new cool item, or upgrade. Like being able to hold more items in my bag. Or to have my very own in game pet. Characters also level up from normal quests, and improve a nice set of stats.

People in the world of Fantasy Life have a variety of wishes. These are completed by helping them out. Which was the whole point of the false goddess. She used to fulfill wishes but decided she did not want to be a welfare state anymore. So she has humans help out one another. Negating the need for her. So why was she ever mentioned? Her whole character is pointless.

Fantasy Life looks a little worse than Animal Crossing New Leaf. The graphics are really small in Fantasy Life. There is also fantasy violence as we can hack and slash enemies with a variety of powers, and skills. There are also mild enticement to lust issues.

Fantasy Life tries its hand at a variety of humor. Some of it is funny, and some falls flat. The music in Fantasy Life is fantastic. I love listening to this hand held video game. Fantasy Life helps players along with reminders on what to do, and easy to view quests. This 3DS game shows players what to do right from the start. The map shows the next destination until you are ready to leave the nest.

I like Fantasy Life. I wish they had left that false goddess content out of the game. Nintendo is still not listening about what the super majority of Americans want. Or they are purposely proselytizing their religious beliefs down our throats. Fantasy Life has so much going for it. I love all the different jobs. I love the variety of quests. I even like that talking butterfly. I am not big on the magic, fortune teller, and crystal ball.
