Final Fantasy Fables: Chocobo Tales review

It's not an epic, but Chocobo Tales still serves up some lighthearted, FF-themed mini-game fun.


  • Fantastic online play
  • Clever humor
  • Fun mini-games


  • Too short
  • Never knowng your goals
  • No-RPG masterpiece

Let’s get this out of the way: If you’re looking for the next DS RPG masterpiece, Final Fantasy Fables: Chocobo Tales will certainly disappoint. Despite the franchise attached to it, it’s really a collection of stylus-based mini-games with an RPG-style overworld. Likewise, if you want WarioWare -styled breakneck insanity, you’ll also be let down. But Chocobo Tales is by no means a bad game, especially if you know what to expect. In fact, we found it to be a very pleasant surprise.
