The one good thing I will say is the graphics/ characters are very well done. As is Story Mode.
The problem though is this is a racing game and the racing fucking sucks. If you fuck up majorly once, you might as well restart the race because the boss will be half way across the map by time you recover.
It uses a system very similar to Mario Kart Racing with powerups/attacks and such, but using them is just boring and not fun at all.
The tracks are very basic and also not fun.
The game is cute, but thats it.
Is chocobo's dungeon 1 & 2 any good?
I somehow doubt it.
Avoid like plague. Terrible rouge like that isn't even in english. Very unforgiving.
It's more or less a nice game to pick up to just chill out and play. Not very hard and doesn't have that much depth.
The extra characters you could unlock were interesting. Squall and Aya were fun to play as. I remember the airship was one of the worst because it crashed into everything at 200mph.
I couldn't get past Ultros in Chocobo's Dungeon 2.

Shiroma is cute
>Shiro (white) MAge
and I can't believe I only just now got that
The airship was so fast that if you used Haste or Boost, it would SLOW DOWN. Ironically, using Boost to slow down made it far easier to take sharp corners than using Grip Up.
Remind me why Gunblade isn't considered hilariously OP?
Was playing Racing earlier this year. I actually like the simplicity of it. No need to think much, if at all.
What's the prerequisite for unlocking Squall? I beat Story Mode like, four times but never got Squall to pop out.
The "ma" is more likely from "madoushi" or "mahoushi", but whatever, it's close enough.
Chocobo's Dungeon 2 was such a shit game. I distinctly remember being so excited when I borrowed it from a friend as a kid, only to be saddened and confused by how bad it was.
Fuck, Ehrgeiz is a better dungeon game. Wait a minute, Ehrgeiz is an actually good game, I forgot
Chocobo's Dungeon is actually great and you can suck dicks.
Azure Dreams is better though.
Ehrgeiz with it's quest mode is interesting for sure, but its as much of a mess as any actiony pseudo roguelike I've seen, it's definitely not as good as Tobal 2, and maybe No.1
The Tobal games have that weird atmosphere to them too, the dungeoning feels very abstract
I think you can actually do weird shit like use an invisibility potion to avoid encounters, then hold up a piece of meat and cook it on the floating fireball that enemies appear as before you get in a battle with them
