Final Fantasy Fables: Chocobo Tales review

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

The mini-games, which are all strictly stylus-controlled, are well thought out, offer a good variety of tasks. Popular FF figures also come into play in these games: one has you stealing fruits from a bickering Ifrit and Shiva, while another has you fleeing the gaping maw of Leviathan, and so on. Most offer both high-score and competitive modes. By accomplishing certain goals, like beating a certain difficulty or getting a good score, you will earn rewards, including opening up pathways to further progress the story. One annoyance, though, is that the game never tells you which goals correspond to what reward – meaning you may have to play through a mini-game several times over before you figure out what you need to accomplish to proceed.
