Summary

It's too easy and simple, but a good choice for those new to the genre.

The Good

FF:MQ is notorious to many RPG fans for numerous reasons. But I'm gonna start with the good parts. If you aren't good at RPGs, and like the genre, by all means play this game. I don't usually enjoy RPGs because they are way too long and hard. Mystic Quest isn't. It's the most simple RPG on the console. And, depending on where your tastes are with games, this can be a hit and miss. I, personally enjoy this game because of it's simple nature, and have finished it in a mere five hours. It's simplicity at it's best.

The Bad

When Square advertised "entry-level RPG" they meant it! This game is EASY! They even added puzzle solving, and it's STILL easy! The game actually equips your items for you, and the treasure chests actually respawn when you come back to that area!

The Bottom Line

Mystic Quest is a Overly-Easy and simple RPG that may only be good for kids, because hardcore gamers need not apply.

Overall: Graphics:7/10 Sound:7/10 Gameplay:6/10 Fun Factor:6/10 Replay value:5/10

THE VERDICT IS: 6 out of 10
