This was a worthy entry into the Fern series, but while I played it, it did not seem to be the strongest. In terms of graphics, it easily beats the rest. The gameplay was also better, and more polished. Not sure why, but it didn't have that certain charm the rest have. It may be because the cast in this one is not recognizable, which was surprising, and can be good or bad, based on preferences. There was something about it that lost that touch the others have. Don't get me wrong, change is good. But, it is entirely one's opinion. Anyway, the game was good, the battles were much more fluid than in the other games, but sacrificed that Fern charm. Overall, it was a good game and a good finish to the series, however, I just happen to prefer some of the older ones.
