Good, but not as good as the 3DS games
Reviewed in Australia on 8 April 2021
It’s a fun introduction to the Bravely Default games and mechanics, but it’s not as in depth or unique job-wise compared to the 3DS games. I miss catmancer and patissier! The StreetPass replacements are shallow, but better than nothing. It’s pretty and well designed, but... it feels like a hollow version of the 3DS originals. Is it too elitist of me to say it feels dumbed down?
I like it, I love turn-based JRPGs, but I feel like its story and characters I’ve seen before in many other games. I’m hoping another 20 or so hours with the game will change my mind. I haven’t given up all hope yet!
