Anyway, I don't personally dislike BoF games but the series only got a bit interesting with 4 and DQ which was a fine game, they're more or less like most other big light JRPG series, if you don't happen to like the aesthetic or characters you don't really lose much by not playing BoF, there's much better and more interesting games to play.

I think BoF2 are a solid 7/10

>> No.3683235

BOF I suffers from being a pretty barebones battle system, and from its translation. I can bet you'll reach one or two points in the game where you'll ask yourself what just happened, and even if you read the game script together with the game, you won't understand things at first. One of those times is when you need to save a party member from a ghost. Some of the party members are close to useless (like the Manillo), and the fusion system doesn't give you as much freedom to experiment, because you'll see only one of the fusions is of any use. The ending drags on and on too.

Now, Breath of Fire II. It does a lot of things right, and a lot of things wrong. For one, fights are less of a chore than I. However, the random encounters get really, really annoying after a while, because there are so many of them. Near the middle of the game, you'll have to descend into a dungeon where most of your battles will be fought, and this dungeon has enemies that cast an instant death spell that can hit you even if you're 50 levels above your enemy. They really turn the tables on dungeon design by the end of the game, because the last 3 dungeons are all mazes - a mess made to "encourage" you to fight as much as possible, while trying to solve some inane puzzle. I hate fighting while solving puzzles.
However, not all is bad. The story is pretty much miles above I, there's a lot of minigames this time (like the above mentioned castle), and the world feels much more alive than I. Your characters have more personality now, and their palettes are also more colorful.

>> No.3683236

>>3682917
At first glance BoF1 is a pretty generic JRPG but I love the game. It's generic, but it helps offset that by having crazy scenarios. There's underwater volcanoes, the towns that hate each other, the day/night towns, pirates, ZOMBIES, dream diving and a bunch of other ones. It's a comfy game that's easy to pick up and play and there's no slow parts. It's a fun ride throughout. It has evidence of poor game design, the most notable one being Gobi becoming irrelevant and unnecessary in every sense of the word outside of his arc. The fun ride aspect, anthropomorphic animal designs, dragon forms and hunting/fishing help bring up an otherwise unremarkable game. I still recommend a newcomer play it, even if not as their first BoF game.

There's patch that came out recently that looks interesting but despite all the additions the music is still the GBA version (and the game's soundtrack is actually one of its high points IMO) http://www.romhacking.net/hacks/3214/

Breath of Fire 2 with the retranslation is a massive improvement. The encounter rate is punishing though and some people complain about having to grind though I've never had to. Outside of a slow start, it keeps the fun ride element from the first game and ups the character development/interaction leaving you with a very lovable cast by the end of the game.

>how does it compare to Lufia 2
Horribly. 1 is a really really really flawed game. There's a bunch of shit like navigation. There's also shit like dragon forms being static so when they dump onto you a bunch of them almost all of them are already rendered obsolete forever.

2 suffers from a bad translation and the fact that is not remotely difficult which makes the battles arbitrary. There's shit with fusions being pretty cock blocked until you spelunk into the final parts of the game. only to be ripped away from you anyways Don't get me wrong, it's not that BoF2 is bad it's just that Lufia 2 is better.

Lufia 1 is a touch flawed but Lufia 2 is amazin.

>>3683262
Can I ask why you're only asking about I and II? It's a fun series to play through and see how the core mechanics evolve and change. It's really a shame that Capcom killed the series.

As for how it compars to Lufia, Lufia 1 + 2 has better puzzles, BoF doesn't really have much of those and when you do encounter one it's usually less of a puzzle and more of an obstacle in your way. This is most notable in BoFIII which is the most puzzle heavy.

FF2 is an apples and oranges situation. It isn't comparable to BoF at all. FF3 has its class system which BoF2 kind of has in the form of shamans, but poor in-game explanation (you'll need a guide to see which stats shamans boost, etc. as well as to find the very missable shaman) can make players ignore it. Most shaman fusions usually only provide stat boosts and one form change per character giving them a new, unique move with the exception of one character who has many form changes. BoF3 and BoF4 has a master system where you basically subscribe your party members to NPCs specializing in different skills and stats and you take on those as you level up.

3 isn't good. You'll have to have a tremendous amount of time spent looking at guides as to how apprentice your characters, because everyone who isn't MC (Ryu) is completely worthless in battle. And even after that, they all lose to an untrained MC in power. Nina is the worst contender:

I'm currently half way through my first play of Breath of Fire 1 (so no nostalgia involved) and this is basically my opinion so far. It's a very simple, traightforward and comfy game with interesting characters and a great art direction.

oh come off it. If you played BoF2 when everybody else did, I.e; when growing up you would have not even cared about the translation because it was simple enough for children to read.

The Collars are cursed items that double the number of random combats and there's TWO to equip so if you are stuck on a place where you can't take 3 steps without triggering a random encounter, unequip the Collars and try again.
(You may want to re-equip the Collars on the final dungeons so you could have a better chance to get the most powerful armor drops and Katt's ultimate weapon.)

Individual stories are okay, I like Nina's black wing arc but the meat of the story with the church happens around the 80% completed mark. Random encounters get turned up when the monster are "aggravated" and in the final dungeon they seem to always be aggravated, so expect 5 encounters for each floors, its truly abysmal especially trying to keep your character fused all the way to the bottom(only to have a cutscene unfuse them anyways).

dont know if you are burnt out but I recommend bof 3 and 4.

i like the kitty, but you are fucking horrible and insanely incessant shitposter. You ruin every single thread with your kat shit flinging, or bof 3/4 is shitty lol play bof2 only gais. You also samefag too much, you dont even try to hide it you ARE the vocal minority. Look just understand not everyone is going to agree with you, but you sperging out is not onnly creepy, but you genuinely have problems. Also I do know you bait so you can keep BoF threads alive, but that is a temporary solution, you drive out the actual fans with such childish trolling.

bof1 gba is completely fine, for bof2 gba OR SNES with translation patch(run button some menu fixes included too i believe).

Tried BoF3 earlier, but I kinda stopped inside the Angel tower or whatever. Dunno, wasn't really feeling the kid phase.
Currently playing BoF4 actually, and liking it so far. Really early still.

Kinda weird how I thought I was 100% done with games with random encounters, but I guess BoF2 made me realize that it can be worth the trouble.

Gosh no. For a first time player, the GBA version of BoF1 is just terrible. I'm replaying it to try the patch in >>3683236. It's been a while since I last played a GBA game so I don't know if this is what it always sounded like or if BoF1's original soundtrack just so happens to rely on instruments that all happen to sound bad on the GBA. Halfway through the game and previously cool, ambient soundtracks sound like something out of Sonic Brotherhood. It's distractingly bad and there's not enough new features to justify playing it.

You just posted a screencap of some nobody autistic fucks on Facebook publicly lusting after a furry in a 22 year old game as proof for what is clearly an imaginary debate. Resolved.png? I can only imagine the shitfaced grin you had on your face when you took that screencap and then carefully edited it. No doubt you were hoping that it would "BTFO" the socalled "Nina apologists"

Once again, nobody cares. You contribute absolutely nothing to these threads. Why don't you just fuck off back to your furry zetaboards forum where you belong.

I played BoF1 on both systems and I heartily recommend the GBA version. The SNES' advantages are graphics and sound. The GBA on the other hand has higher xp/money rates, a run button (the default walking speed is sloooooow), much improved interface (seriously, it's night and day) and a quick save option. If you're playing on an emulator/flashcart you can also use a fan patch to change item/character names to fit in with later games. Overall, unless you really value the technical aspect of the game and graphics/sound really matter to you, the GBA is just a better game overall.

Understandable. Don't push yourself to play through it. BoF3 is pretty damn slow and remains that way for the majority of the game. It's especially hard to play it if you're marathoning the series in order. BoF4 starts off with a bang and the aesthetic and music alone makes it the most interesting entry in the series.

Angel Tower is when the kid phase ends though. If you would have played a bit longer, things might have gotten interesting.

It's full of those though. Unless you've been playing only the scraps that get localized and the mainstream games for kids and a younger audience there have been many games with older male and female protagonists since the SNES days.

That's because your taste in music is mediocre.

BoF1 was excellent in its simplicity and brevity. I've only played the SNES version, but after >>3689270 I wouldn't play the GBA port.

BoF2 tried to innovate but botched almost everything, especially its dungeon design, but it's still worth playing to see how the series develops.
