Okay, some time for impressions of the 光の４戦士-ファイナルファンタジー外伝- (Four Warriors of Light: Final Fantasy Sidestory) game. Got it this Christmas, I'm...actually, I don't have a clue how many hours in I am, don't recall it saying anywhere. but pretty damn many hours anyway. Judging by the crowns (jobs) unlocked I'm a bit less than half-way through the game.
If you're not familiar with the title, it was made with the intention of presenting it like an old-school game, complete with music (not actual orchestra playing, the music sounds like it came off a SNES) and game play (overworld, turn-based combat on a battle screen, complicated dungeons/cities/houses that don't even attempt to make it look like they came out of a real world, etc), with graphics replicating the SNES-look in 3D (which mostly just means the charas are SD. The backgrounds looks like they came out of a story book).
This will include some minor spoilers, but no major points.

My judgement so far? A good distraction, but falls a bit flat on its face in certain aspects.
