Theatrhythm Final Fantasy – Curtain Call 3DS Review

Final Fantasy Curtain Call RealGamerNewz Review

Theatrhythm Final Fantasy is a fairly new series that emerged from Square Enix in 2012 for 3DS and later iOS platforms. Essentially, when boiled down to its most fundamental elements Theatrhythm Final Fantasy is often compared to Rock Band or Guitar Hero for the Final Fantasy universe of music. Curtain Call is second installment and a thank you from SE to the gaming community at large for supporting the first Theatrhythm Final Fantasy project on the Nintendo 3DS prior to this one. The title seems to have been a success with critics taking favor and sales seemingly decent enough. Its success can be easily attributed to the nostalgia and emotional attachment that millions of gamers around the world share for the musical arrangements of the various Final Fantasy video game soundtracks showcased in Curtain Call. If you never picked up the original, you can also view the movies it contained during EMS stages in Curtain Call’s Museum: Theater section.

My favorite songs to play in Theatrhythm Final Fantasy – Curtain Call are definitely the Main Theme on FF1, FF2, and a few others (it’s great to hear that familiar melody), the Final Fantasy VI and VII soundtracks are also personal favorites (I wish they put more tracks from those games). Using my Turtle Beach 3DS XL headphones the quality of the music for a dedicated gaming handheld device is incredible. Most of the songs were composed so well for the classic Final Fantasy series, that listening to them causes one to drift off to another place mentally and spiritually. Very moving musician work indeed makes for an engaging rhythm genre gem.

The ability to play music when you just want to hear it instead of being restricted to gameplay only is a great additional feature to Curtain Call that fans can enjoy. The soundtrack set of Curtain Call has everything to offer for gamers regardless if they’ve played the Final Fantasy series or not. Everything from full symphony music to retro chip-tunes, legit 8 bit stuff, and even modern soundtrack elements from newer titles.

Everything in Curtain Call is unlockable by playing the game. This isn’t one of those, spend money and get surprised by endless DLC later – which I appreciate since this Review is out of my own pocket. The many collectibles in the game are easily organized into a few key sections including CollectaCards and Card Binder: Collection (Normal, Rare, Premium) different designs to each for use in the Model Viewer, touch a card and examine in-game models from your Collection once you get the CollectaCard for that character (such as Cloud Strife Chibi). This game even features Play Records and Trophies for the really serious perfectionists out there.

Final Verdict:

Curtain Call brings back the great concept that is Theatrhythm Final Fantasy on Nintendo 3DS. Essentially waving the stylus around as if you’re the composer to some of Role Playing Games’ most inspirational tracks is bad-ass. If you’re a fan of the series, this is a must have for your collection. This packaging in particular sequels the original quite well and provides plenty of content to justify the purchase. As always, if you absolutely hate all rhythm games – you might not like this one either. But if you’re open to what awaits behind the curtain, take a spin with this 3DS Exclusive this holiday season. It should be around at a decent price by now as it released on September 16th, 2014 in the United States and September 19th, 2014 in Europe after the initial release which occurred in Japan on April 24, 2014. Although this is an almost perfect release, there’s still some improvements that players can expect in future installments of the series – presumably compatible with New3DS hardware. There is also a limited edition Nintendo 3DS XL for Theatrhythm Final Fantasy: Curtain Call available only in Japan.

Tristans Twisted World: Some of the greatest supporting characters in video games

Before you ask no this is not a top list this is just a mention of some of the best characters I have seen in my life. It is simple really to begin with this but why wait when I go full steam.

Liara T’soni is one the best written characters I have seen in recent years as she is the ideal love interest for Commander Shepard as it fells so natural for them to be together. Her back and personal story’s are also worth a good look as she has a lot of history and a more shy story that you have to push to see. It becomes easier of the games the more you get to know her unless your with her of course.

Ghost in MW2 is simple he is just a badass that is all there is needed to be said on that matter.

Dom was the best friend of Marcus in the Gears of War series it was a very well written love story of two best friends having each others backs no matter what.

Cortana is Master Chiefs no girlfriend girlfriend but was always there for him and cared deeply about him in so many ways that it was hard to believe she was a machine.

Clementine is the idea of a girl walking around in a ruined world trying to survive with her father figure Lee. She has lost so much by the end of seasons one it will be nice to see how her character develop.

Tristans Twisted World: Sex appeal in video games

As we have seen in games sometimes girls may be made to look a certain way. But does that really affect why someone would buy they game? Is it justice to make girls look a certain way? Does it matter maybe to make them look better or is it how stuff is. Well take a look at some of these characters.

So are girls in games used as sex idols? I don’t know you tell me…..

Once Again, DLC Already On-Disc for a Capcom Game…

So the time has come where another game has been plagued by the controversial “on-disc DLC” condition. It shouldn’t come as any surprise being that this is a Capcom game. It was recently discovered, but long foretold that Street Fighter X Tekken has done DLC content that is partially or in some cases may be completely stored on the discs of the games themselves already (thus making unlocking it cost a fee even though you’re unlocking content you already own).

Despite the many complaints alraedy, to me, this isn’t really a big deal, or at least not more so than any other DLC. The fact is most DLC is made while the game is being made, regardless if they put it on your disc or not. At this point though, we all know what the fighting game niche is like and how Capcom treats their fans. If you didn’t see this coming you should get your eyes checked.

Cinemablend reports: “The news is spreading like wildfire, proving that all of the long-term DLC Capcom had planned for Street Fighter X Tekken is already on the disc. New gameplay footage and additional details confirm that the downloadable content on the Street Fighter X Tekken disc is completely accessible with the right tools.”
