Game Review: Final Fantasy Record Keeper

I haven’t been able to keep up with this as well as I’ve been wanting to lately with new job and moving, but I do plan on to as well as I can!

Final Fantasy: Record Keeper is an interesting game in the SqEnix line, as this takes the grandeur of the Final Fantasy franchise and lets you experience the series one frame at a time. The basis on the story is you are a keeper in this realm, and what keeps it protected is all of the ‘records’ of the past. When the records are all of a sudden disappearing, it’s up to the new Keeper (which is you) to go into these records and relive them, going back through and fixing them. As you go through the records, you gain people to help in fixing them. So you would see familiar faces like Cloud, Tifa, Cecil, and others. As well as this you collect equipment from every game. This equipment if you equip it to people of the same game (like the Protect Vest on Cloud), it actually works doubly better on them and provides more benefits. This isn’t as well used in the beginning, but you get more opportunities as you move along.

The gameplay is like a trip through a time portal, you go into the familar environments of these games, like the Mako Reactor of VII and Zanarkand of X. As well as this, you get to hear those familiar tunes of fight music from each game, tailored to that specific game. It’s a pretty fun game, and still fairly new, so there are new dungeons, expanding current dungeons, and events fairly frequently (as of this posting, it’s the Sector Showdown (VII) with Aerith as a prize).
