Overall, Chocobo’s Mystery Dungeon EVERY BUDDY! is a fun game to play, though the story and some of the characters could have been done better.

Chocobo’s Mystery Dungeon: Every Buddy! easily proves to be the best version of Chocobo’s Mystery Dungeon, and we would even go so far as to say it’s in the running of being the best Mystery Dungeon game in general. The story proves to be surprisingly heartfelt and mature in many places, and the depth offered by the jobs system, coupled with auxiliary systems like Buddies and equipment, helps to keep the endlessly repetitive dungeon crawling from becoming too taxing.

The cherry on top was when I lost over two hours of progress when my game crashed, my first Switch crash since the system launched. So how about a final roll of the dice? Anything other than a natural 20, and Chocobo’s Mystery Dungeon probably isn’t for you. What did you roll?

The story, the beautiful art direction, the charming characters, and the appropriate level of difficulty made that Wii game one of the best RPGs in the system's library. Chocobo's Mystery Dungeon Every Buddy!, with its thoughtful additions, is simply a better version of it. Hardcore roguelike fans may find it too forgiving, but for anyone unfamiliar with the genre, you won't find a better jumping off point than this.

This feels a bit retro, but still holds up as a solid dungeon crawler.

Absolutely filled to the brim with content, Chocobo's Mystery Dungeon: Every Buddy! is a charming take on the Mystery Dungeon format. While it might not offer too much in the way of innovation, there is a refined quality to just about every aspect. From the Buddy System, to the wonderful integration of Final Fantasy's Job System, there's very little on display that doesn't ultimately come together. The difficulty's pacing might pose a problem to some, but Square Enix's latest interpretation of the Mystery Dungeon franchise is bound to be remembered as one of the series' highest points.

Still, even though this adventure has come to a close for us, we didn't want it too. That's why we stand by our assertion that Chocobo's Mystery Dungeon Every Buddy! is a fun and accessible roguelike JRPG for both new and experienced players alike. Now, is it too early to start a new playthrough?

If you’re a fan of mystery dungeon games, I can’t recommend Chocobo’s Mystery Dungeon: Every Buddy! enough. It’s got a few issues with dated visuals and the way you gain job experience, but it’s still a gem of a game. Final Fantasy fans and newcomers alike should treat themselves to this adorable experience.

Chocobo's Mystery Dungeon EVERY BUDDY! se reinventa para llegar a las nuevas consolas, sin poder quitarse un poco ese sabor viejuno que quizás no les guste a todos los jugadores. Sin duda trae nostalgia a montones a los que ya disfrutamos del título en su momento, y lo mejora con su modo cooperativo y sus gráficos algo renovados. Se echaba de menos el carisma de los chocobos, aunque no tanto un RPG de mazmorras. Aún así, entretiene y supone un verdadero reto para los fans del género.

Un rogue-like de mazmorras de generación procedural que resultan demasiado desafiantes en algunos puntos y que puede resultar repetitivo si no somos un tipo de jugadores al que les guste este tipo de mecánicas. Se presenta un modo de trabajos para escoger la clase que queramos ser y podemos ser acompañados por diversos personajes, algo que suma estrategia y variedad al título. A esto se ha añadido un detalle de agradecer como es el modo de dos jugadores, algo que viene muy bien a la versión de Switch.

Aun así, es una grata propuesta, tanto para los neófitos en Final Fantasy como para, sobre todo, los fieles al universo de Square Enix, que verán complementada su experiencia con una de las sagas más queridas del mundo de los videojuegos.

Chocobo’s Mystery Dungeon Every Buddy! comporte des propositions variées dont la richesse surprend celui qui aurait basé son jugement sur l’aspect enfantin du titre. Quant à ceux qui ont expérimenté les versions éditées depuis 2007 sur Wii et DS, la pertinence d’acquérir ce nouvel opus est dépendante de l’expérience toute personnelle vécue avec le titre : les uns regretteront les suppressions effectuées, les autres y verront au contraire le moyen de se replonger dans un jeu ayant conservé son ADN, tout en apportant des propositions différentes qui donnent un nouveau souffle à l’expérience.

A priori, Chocobo's Mystery Dungeon Every Buddy ressemble à une simple remasterisation du volet Wii étoffé d'un mode en duo. Cette évolution enrichit toutefois considérablement les combats, tout en ajoutant une touche de collectionnite. De quoi rendre l'aventure non seulement plus conviviale, mais aussi adoucir globalement la recette, qui reste très épicée, voire indigeste si l'on s'acharne sur les challenges en oubliant les sympathiques occupations annexes.
Christian ColliMar 30, 2019
Chocobo's Mystery Dungeon EVERY BUDDY! ovviamente non è un gioco per tutti. Per apprezzarlo veramente dovreste rientrare in due precise categorie: prima di tutto dovete amare Final Fantasy e la sua mitologia, e poi dovreste quantomeno apprezzare i roguelike e i mystery dungeon. Il titolo sviluppato da h.a.n.d. può diventare frustrante, soprattutto perché fa un po' troppo leva sulla casualità, ma resta comunque un gioco di ruolo particolare, capace di dare grandi soddisfazioni, e realizzato con una discreta cura, sebbene il comparto tecnico mostri inevitabilmente i suoi anni. Se rientrate nelle categorie suddette, dovreste decisamente dargli un'occhiata.

Het grootste nadeel van de game komt hierin naar voren, namelijk de ongebalanceerde kerkers. Met een beetje geluk doorloop je de game zonder al te veel kleerscheuren, maar als je pech hebt wandel je rechtstreeks een helse tocht tegemoet. Square Enix heeft met deze remaster niet de kip met de gouden eieren te pakken, maar zet wel een game neer die urenlang vermaak weet te verzorgen.
