Theatrhythm Final Fantasy

I'm surprised that I couldn't find a dedicated thread to this game on OCR. My initial reaction was, "Man, Final Fantasy is stooping to new lows." But then, I played it. Wow. This is just a love letter to Nobuo Uematsu and fans of Final Fantasy music. It's basically made for communities like OCR. They visualized the various soundtracks quite well in the game. Keeps you on your toes with various hand-eye-ear co-ordination as you tap & slide your way through the notes of some of the best game music ever. I found myself acing and loving the music I'm very familiar with, particularly over-world notes. The difficulty scales up quite well depending on the song and choice of which notes you would like to tackle. In the harder difficulties, some tracks put notes out that I initially didn't pay attention to, especially battle music. The transition from melodies to background harmonies during the song is jarring at first, but that's what makes it so cool and special. In addition to all of that, the RPG aspects are really cool and addictive.

A lot of the favorites make in the game. I never expected to see Dancing Mad though as it is quite a long track. Sadly, it's the abridged version...not the entire song, but still the longest track in the game. Takes some time to unlock though. DLC tracks are also good choices.

Nintendo really needs to take notes from theatrhythm and celebrate their own music in a game similar to it. Definitely a must play for VGM communites like OCR.

There's a bit of Theatrythmn talk in the 3DS thread and I made a write up of it a few paragraphs long, although nothing more than a page or two. The general consensus is that if you like rhythm games and Final Fantasy music, then you'll love the hell out of the game as it's pretty addictive. If you're not fans of them however, then you probably won't be into it.

I don't really think there's a lot to be said about it other than it's pretty kewl, and goddamnit I still want to buy all that DLC.

Agreed with the general consensus. I don't know who in OCR would not like FF music, but in general most fans of the series should be fans of the music too. They're inseparable in my opinion.

I also want to download all the DLC. I have Cosmo Canyon so far. Most of the tracks are exciting, particularly Sonmus; I was surprised to see that in the list since Versus hasn't been released yet. But I LOVE that track.

I can believe that.

Got myself bout 78k Rhythmia just now and downloaded FFX's battle theme and FFVII's battle theme.

Love the game so much just a shame the unlockable characters don't get unique abilities which can make them fall behind a bit seeing as the others get limit breaks.

That said Princess Sarah is surprisingly tech since she gets more or less all the buffs and soul voice.

I'm hoping Calm Lands becomes a DLC Field Music stage, was quite surprised Mihen Highroad beat it there for the main slot.

Also damn them spinning arrow notes on the level 90+ Dark Notes.

All 52 DLC songs are already out and there is no indication there will be more. So no point in hoping for more DLC.

I have 99999 Rm and all the DLC (yes I am aware I spent $52 on this game's DLC) and I'm still having fun with it.

Ah well that's a shame, not that the offerings are bad anyway, I just really like the Calm Lands' music and Besaid island too.

Really there's just so much music they could've put into this game, hell they could possibly even release a sequel somewhere down the line they still have enough material for it.

I'm not so much into FF games as I am the music. It happened when I was playing FFXI Online. In every new area or cutscene there was a song I needed on my iPod. After a while I started to check out music from other FFs, and it just snowballed.

So now I need a 3DS for this game because the music is such an every-day part of my life. It's like a hobby of its own.. "listen to FF music."

Also, I think I saw "Sanctuary of Zi'Tah" on the song list. Talk about an overlooked gem of a tune.

If there's one thing that makes me a bit sad about this game it's how it limits itself in terms of songs at times. I'm not talking new songs I'm talking existing ones. FF12's ending theme appears in series mode as the conclusion theme and again in Chaos Shrine as a battle theme. I'd love to just play it as a battle theme outside and the same for some of the other songs which are 'intro' or 'outro' exclusive.

In addition I dislike how the Chaos Shrine only has about....13-16 songs at times really feels limiting and kinda kills the fun at times when I end up playing the same compilations at times.

at times I use the phrase "at times" a little too often. at times. :lol:

I think the number of the movement also indicates the difficulty too with movement 90 and above introducing a bunch of spinning arrow notes...

well yeah, but that's explained in game. it doesn't explain how to tell what songs are in what Dark Note. And that's the No. that determines difficult, not the Movement number.

Rather it could tell me whether there were new shards available in the songs too.

I'm kinda hoping the inclusion of some characters are hints for playable characters in a future Dissidia game since the main roster and most of the abilities are copy-pasted from it. Would love for Snow to be playable.

He is, iirc. And I think there's an ability that will do just what you want there. Or rather, tell you the items in that Dark Note or something.

Woah, hold the phone what do you know?

I'd never even heard of anything about a third Dissidia other than a desire for one to be made sometime.
