Different from the RPG norm, but in a go

Most Final Fantasy games have the same formula, but Mystic Quest mixed it up a little; it was a pretty gutsy move for 1992 and a company that didn't have many games out yet.

Good Features

The monsters are visible and can easily be avoided, so you don't face random battles. You are able to real-time weapon change, which means that you can switch between all of your wea... read more

Many consider this game as bad, but i liked it, it is definately a beginner game, as you can easily beat monsters once you leveled up a bit and later it gets even easier with a few tricks to get stronger.
May the graphics be a bit dull and boring, the soundtrack is awesome and really gets you going.
One thing i have to say about the german version of the game, the translators really bu... read more

One thing i have to say about the german version of the game, the translators really butchered it, many lines were changed and make no sense and a lot was cut, for example, the Dark King at the end of the game doesn't say anything.

So i recommend the english version.” read more

"No.050 / Added: 02.08.10 / Status: Played Final Fantasy Mystic Quest is a game that is often judged for what it is not. It’s true that an entry-level role-playing game may not have been what the genre needed at the time (at least outside of Japan that is) but when one looks beyond such a failed ambition it’s still a well-crafted product that can be enjoyable to anyone willing to give it a break and not expecting a full-fledged Final Fantasy."

Favorite Games - A Year by Year Review (120 games items)

"This was the very first Final Fantasy game I ever played, and one of my favorites in the series, perhaps in part because it was my first. The series has taken a decidedly sci-fi turn, especially in later installments, but this one still stands mostly in the fantasy realm. For this system and time, it's amazing, with good character progression and an interesting assortment of skills and weapons, including magic of course. Not something I play all the time any more, but definitely worth giving it "

"Released specifically for the US market, this entry was designed to appeal to entry-level RPG gamers and to try and broaden the franchise's appeal. But because many features were stripped from the gameplay, it was not a well received addition to the franchise. * Review: Different from the RPG norm by TonyDanza"

Good Features

The monsters are visible and can easily be avoided, so you don't face random battles. You are able to real-time weapon change, which means that you can switch between all of your weapons by pressing L or R, and use them to affect the surrounding environment (chop down trees, blow up rocks, etc.). Your armor is accumulated as a whole and automatically equipped. Every direction you can go is displayed on the world map, meaning you don't spend all that time mucking about trying to find your way to your next destination. It is also an over-the-shoulder type of battle, so you won't be on th” read more
