So, Lately I've been playing a lot of epic fantasy battle 3. While this game is lots o f fun and it is fairly interesting to play. I must admit that I'm not enjoying myself as much as I would.The main problem would be mini-games and the medals. The mini-games themselves are harmless, and I will admit this. The games aren't hard in the traditional sense they are instead hard because of the controls. Mainly the fourth mini game with treasure hunter cat. The main problem I have with this is DOWN for attack which is really rare and doesn't happen in video games often. The reason it doesn't happen is because the down key isn't meant for mashing as much as you need to normally. So It isn't really dependent, comfortable, or enjoyable to mash the key as much as you can in hopes of avoiding getting hit. The monsters themselves have no set patterns and seem to spawn randomly. The other gripe I have with this game is story. While I'm not expecting an award winning masterpiece I'm expecting something instead of "I lost X, and I need X to defeat Villain Y." Now solve for X. I don't feel compelled to move on or to keep playing. Instead think of something like Mardek. While the games story isn't totally out there it interests you enough to keep going that extra mile in hope that you'll see the game through. The characters in EFB3 seem to do nothing but argue with each other, torture the girl, or sprout internet lingo. While this is funny at first it becomes tired really quickly and as such I started hating Matt and Lance more than I hate pudding-skins. Some will argue that the inclusion of medals in the game might keep you interested. This is true sadly but I don't think an abundance of medals makes up for a bad story. I can't help but feel that this game could've been much more if he had a better damn writer, a few more beta testers, and perhaps some dignity. The female character seems to be nothing more than a brick, and a bad brick at that for nothing more than boob jokes and what seems to be a sex object. (e.g. cow suits and cat suits), but perhaps I'm looking to much in this game on the outside it is a great game and lots of fun to play if you don't mind final fantasy battles shoved down your throat every twenty seconds. Lots of fun but I think it just be so much
better.
