Genres: Action, RPG

FINAL FANTASY EXPLORERS is an action-role playing adventure exclusively on the Nintendo 3DS system. Either through solo play or with up to three other Explorers, players can dive into dungeons to collect crystals scattered throughout the world while battling classic FINAL FANTASY enemies. FINAL FANTASY EXPLORERS focuses on cooperative play with friends and utilizes a refined party system allowing Explorers to master over 20 new and familiar jobs, including Knight, Monk, Black Mage and White Mage, to defeat the realm's mightiest monsters and even recruit them for battle. Players will have the ability to call upon the powers of eidolons like I frit and Bahamut, as well as transform into other legendary characters from the FINAL FANTASY series via the Trance feature. Story: The world is on the brink of war over its reserves of crystals, the planet's chief source of power. Players must band together to form an elite squad of Explorers on an island rich in crystals, braving hordes of monsters in hopes of conquering a newly discovered Grand Crystal - every Explorer's dream.

For a few hours at least, Final Fantasy Explorers is a charming little adventure that's fun to play alone with your monster buddies or with real-life friends. But repetitive quests, the lack of a serious challenge until late in the story and a poor travel system eventually broke the charm spell that Explorers had cast upon me.

Square Enix's latest attempt to create a Monster Hunter clone has a lot of Final Fantasy fan service but few other reasons to explore its world.

Final Fantasy Explorers is a great entry point for those interested in the co-op monster-hunting genre. The combat is its strongest asset, but expect to have to do some grinding along the way.

From gear to popular monsters, fans will enjoy the fun upgrade system combined with all the content emblematic to the series, but the overall journey isn't exciting
