Final Fantasy Mystic Quest Review
"Final Fantasy Mystic Quest" is an awesome role playing game for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES). This particular game was an influential part of my childhood. I have had some of the music from this game stuck in my head periodically since the time that I was a very young youth. I loved the game when I was a kid, and I still enjoy it thoroughly to this day. This game offers me much more than just nostalgia; the product was simply a well made piece of artistic expression. #VideoGameTruth
One of this game's greatest strengths is most definitely the music that is included. The game's music is still appreciated, even outside of the game play. This role playing game (RPG) is in the possession of the best musical numbers that I have ever heard from a game of its sort. The sounds of this 90's game easily get the blood flowing! I feel as though this game's music is simply something which needs to be experienced directly. It cannot be accurately described with the help of words alone! Please consider taking the time to listen to some of this game's fantastic musical compositions.

Although "Final Fantasy Mystic Quest" has likely been under a lot of criticism for its graphics, I am much less pessimistic. For the 16 bit SNES, the visual artwork for this game is amazing. The small depictions of characters may have been difficult to draw (and, they probably were to be honest), but generally speaking - the imagery is incredible. Visually, this game is in the upper tier for SNES games. One notable item about the art is that it is much more realistic in nature than many other games of its time. The pictured works do not feel cartoony; they feel as though they are depictions of something all too real. This realism adds a new level to game play in the fantasy world the players are introduced to.
The game play is very different from the majority of other games in this franchise. Monster attacks do not occur on random, which can give the player some aid in escaping when in a bad situation. However, enemies can still block one's pathway and the game isn't entirely nor necessarily easy for this feature. Overall, the game's battles are very fun. I will repeat that this game's strongest feature is its music, but fighting the monsters is enjoyable too. The music alongside the actual battle makes the whole experience that much more awesome.

The story line is another greatly underrated aspect of this game. I did and do thoroughly enjoy the story. This particular narrative is well amplified with the assistance of the graphics and of the music. I think that the game's story line is just fantastic! I don't care much for all of the negativity that is often spouted online against items within the fields of mainstream culture. I still feel for the characters involved in the imagined story for "Final Fantasy Mystic Quest". All of the people in the game are unique and interesting. I actually believe that the characters in this game were much more developed than some of the characters in other games of the franchise.
I believe very strongly that this RPG is heavily underrated. This game not only took a lot of talent to create, but the finished product is amazing as well. It would appear, to me at least, that negative reviews have been the norm for too long now. I much prefer reviewing something that I love. And, I love "Final Fantasy Mystic Quest"! That isn't to state that I never hate on anything, because I certainly have a history of that. However, incredibly fun games like "Final Fantasy Mystic Quest" shouldn't be hated upon in my mind. Please inform me of what you all think in the comments below. Did you ever play this game? If so, did you like it? Did you enjoy it more or less than other games of its kind? Please tell me your thoughts!
