i- Games on the Throne: Final Fable

final fableWhat is it?

Final Fable is kind of like a JRPG for your mobile device. Or more accurately, it’s like watching someone play a non turn-based JRPG with a menu-based combat system on your mobile device. The game automatically executes all of your basic attacks, so all you have left to do is choose when to use each party member’s limit break (unless you set that to automatic as well). Outside of combat, you get to micromanage your party members.

Pros:

  • You can choose to make your main character a lady or a guy.
  • It’s free.
  • The art is alright.
  • The most difficult part of this game is trying to find three nice things to say about it.

Cons:

  • It’s inescapably boring.
  • The battles required almost no skill to win.
  • While it has a story, it was not enjoyable and lacked any charm or originality.
  • Out of combat, all you can do is micromanage your party and wait for bars to fill.
  • In combat, you get to wait for bars to fill, activate each character’s limit break, and switch character positions. You can also chat with other players, but that is distracting when you’re murdering a brown snake.

Conclusion:

  • This game is reminds me of Football Manager; while I think it is awful, there are people who will enjoy it. If you’re one of those people, don’t let my dislike for it stop you.
  • For everyone who doesn’t have a fetish for micromanaging, I’d recommend skipping Final Fable.
