"...the characters are well written and elevate the overall material with their interactions. JRPG fans who missed this title when it released on PlayStation 3 should absolutely give this PC version a try." -4/5, Digtally Downloaded
Long ago, the Vile God and the Goddess waged war with each other. Equally matched, they were sealed away in another world…
Now a lazy young man named Fang somehow finds himself a key part of this war he’d really rather not deal with, but fate beckons in this uncommon RPG!
More Flash & Flair! The world of Fencers and fairies gets updated with a 1080p graphic overhaul! Fairizing never looked so good.
Really Reluctant Hero With a hero more interested in his next meal and a fairy partner who will have none of it, this saving-the-world narrative is injected with oodles of madcap humor!
High Tension! Increase the Tension gauge in battle by dealing and receiving damage. The higher it is, the more damage you’ll dish. Once it’s high enough, you’ll be able to Fairize – combining with your fairy to create a super-powerful form!
Fairy’s Fate Find fairies to join you in your quest – only they can grant you special abilities, and by leveling them up you’ll also increase your effect radius in…
World-Shaping! Pull Furies from the Goddess and Vile God and place your fairies in them. You can then stab those Furies into the world map for new effects in nearby dungeons like EXP boosts or enemy changes - be careful though, because not all effects are good!

If you're a fan of the Neptunia series of JRPGs there is very little chance you won't enjoy this. This is a refreshing break from the world of Game Industri but with the familiar combat system and visual novel style dialogue from those games. The characters are very charming, and the banter between them is often hilarious and touching. One of the visual treats of the Neptunia series are the animations during skills, transformations, and ultimates; this is where Fairy Fencer beats out Neptunia in my opinion. The ultimates look a lot more epic, the skills all look awesome, and the transformations are pretty sweet too. I definitely recommend this game to any Neptunia fans or fans of turn based JRPGs in general who are looking for something light hearted and fun.
Neptunia fans read point B otherwise read point A A. Fairy Fencer F is a RPG with 3D battles where you are confined in an area with the enemy you are facing. It has some humor here and there but is much more of a serious game. This game is heavily story based with long drawn out conversations that can get a little annoying but all of the conversations are able to be skipped completely. Over all if you like rpgs, graphic novels, and more complex rpg battles than you should like this. B. It has much less humor than the Neptunia series with far less 4th wall breaks (I have only found one which kinda didn't happen). At the base the Battles are the same but with the normal attack there is no enemies in the small attack range get attacked but special moves like in the Neptunia series do have that. There is a sword stabbing feature that is somewhat similar to the remake system in Re;Birth. Over all it is a good RPG game like Neptunia so if you like Neptunia and want another good RPG game than this is a good choice.
Unlike most people that purchased this game, I have not played any Neptunia games. I found Fairy Fencer F very interesting. I would play it daily to learn more about the story and to figure out how events play out. I've yet to do my second playthrough, but I intend to when I have time. One of the most enjoyable games I've played in some time. Again, I have no experience with Neptunia so I am unfamiliar with the similarities.
The overall feel of the game is just like Neptunia, the UX in particular is pretty similar, as such took me no time to get use to the UI of the game. Heck even some of the enemies uses the same models (not complaining though). With all that said, there are some major difference to the mechanics of the game, particularly in the combat, being having the HDD mode replaced which potiental changed the way you would play out the combat in Fairy Fencer. If you enjoy games like Hyperdimension Neptunia, then maybe you would want to give this a try too.
One might expect Fairy Fencer F to be a whole different game from Hyperdimension Neptunia. After all, there is a male protagonist, less loli characters and Nobuo Uematsu and Yoshitaka Amano (Both have worked on the Final Fantasy franchise) both took part in this project. However, Fairy Fencer F is not different from its "cousin". You are Fang, a lazy guy who only thinks about food. All. The. Time. Fang is a Fencer (Some sort of warrior) and he must collect furies in order to awaken the ancient gods. He's helped by Eryn (Who is a Fairy) and several others characters (Most of them are Fencers). During the adventure, the heroes will be confronted by an evil corporation that tries to harness the gods powers to gain profit. It's might sound okay but the story suffers from the same problem than Neptunia. It's filled with fan-service, anime clichés (There is even a mascot...) and stupid humor. The gameplay is not better. The combat are tedious and even uses the same gimmicks from Neptunia ("Jump X times to boost this stats" ugh...). It's a shame because the furies concept is pretty cool on the paper. The visuals are more polished than in the previous games but it's still very far from other 3D RPGS. (And it's so empty...) Fairy Fencer F is a bit better than Neptunia but it's not enough to make it a good RPG.
