It’s been a long time since I’ve really gotten into a JRPG, but Bravely Default really sank its claws into me. I spent more time in it than any other game this year (that wasn’t Spelunky). It does a lot of things that streamline the experience such as allowing you to adjust random battle frequency and game speed. The music and graphics are top-notch like you’d expect from a classic Square game. The game does get a tad repetitive toward the end, but I was so enamored by the whole package that I just wanted to keep playing anyway. I’m looking forward to seeing what they do for Bravely Second.
