Fairy Fencer F is reborn as Fairy Fencer F: Advent Dark Force for the PlayStation 4 system, in updated HD. Continue your adventure through three new story paths. Play as Fang and his gang as you face off against a new, evil organization, meet new fairies and fencers, and collect the furies scattered across the world. Each path leads to a different outcome, so choose wisely. The turn-based RPG battle system allows you to transform during battle and defeat enemies quickly. Alongside new content, you can now have up to 6 characters on the battlefield at a time. That's double the fairies and the fencing. With so many characters, players will be allowed to balance gameplay with three new difficulty settings.

But I guess that’s the rub of doing a review. If I stopped after my first playthrough, I wouldn’t be recommending it. With two under my belt, I recognize I could have had a great time with Fairy Fencer F: Advent Dark Force had I just done the opposite of what all the characters told me to do. It’s quite the Jekyll and Hyde situation, one I can easily recommend to Compile Heart fans, but only endorse for non-fans on the stipulation they don’t listen to Tiara and Eryn.

Fairy Fencer F: Advent Dark Force is a dull game due to the fact that Compile Heart has not explored more ways in the role genre. Until then, their games still feel like they are all the same.

Fairy Fencer F: Advent Dark Force improves on the previous game, but that still doesn’t make it a perfect experience.

Fairy Fencer F: Advent Dark Force is a remake with very few improvements. An added ability to be evil and access a new storyline brings new content, but the game is basically unchanged from its PlayStation 3 debut. Bland, cliché, and uninspired, Fairy Fencer F is just another cog in an increasingly frustrating machine churning out the same JRPG experience over and over again. With recent releases of bigger and better games in the genre, Fairy Fencer F is one to avoid.
