About this game

Developer: Square Enix
Content Rating: Teen


Bravely Default follows the story of main character Tiz, a humble shepherd and the lone survivor of a cataclysmic event, as he joins a group of loyal companions on a journey to restore balance to the world. The battle system is what differentiates Bravely Default from other RPGs. Here players can strategically choose when to initiate two complementary commands: Brave and Default. This innovative system encourages players to think carefully about strategy during every enemy encounter. Selecting "Brave" lets players increase the number of actions a character can take in a turn, while "Default" allows players to store actions for later use.

The risk-rewards system and job customization are the game's highlights.

Making full advantage of the 3D effect also greatly improved the game's graphics, making it appear more current and immersive.

The brave and default systems make combat more enjoyable by allowing

for more detailed battle costumization and tactics, along with great music.

The main drawback of Bravely Default is the repetitive chapters in the middle of the game.

If you are a turn based rpg game enthusiat, you will most likely enjoy the journey.

Bravely Default is an AMAZING way to scratch the itch for a classic-feeling JRPG with a deep class system, excellent characters, and a cool story.

The music is good, graphics are good, and difficulty is extremely well balanced, although there are some spikes that felt as if they came from nowhere.

My only other gripe is it felt like there was a bit of filler content to add length to the game, which wasn’t necessary. There is plenty of replay value to add playtime.

Anyways, I’m leaving BD excited for Bravely Second and Bravely Default II.

Any 3DS owner with even a fleeting interest in role-playing games and a desire to get lost in an incredible, engaging adventure would be doing themselves a huge favour by picking up Bravely Default without delay.

What was old is new again, and Bravely Default illuminates a bright future for the genre

Despite that unwelcome intrusion and the lacklustre storytelling, Bravely Default is one of the finest RPGs Square Enix has been involved with in recent times. While it's a stretch to call its battle mechanics groundbreaking, they certainly represent a welcome level of innovation that has a palpable effect on the way you approach combat and makes Bravely Default a highly entertaining adventure.
