Pro Unique risk reward combat system
The combat in Bravely Default revolves around a risk reward system where the player can choose to take up to four turn sanctimoniously, which will leave them turn-less for the next three turns. This can of course open them up to numerous attacks where they will be unable to do anything, even heal. On the flip side one can choose to take a singe turn in order to build up the amount of extra turns they can take when they do want to take a risk. This balance is what makes for strategic gameplay in that one needs to weigh if the risk outweighs the reward.
Pro View cut-scenes starring certain characters with AR cards
The AR card implementation for Bravely Default allows one to view cut-scenes starring a particular character that is on the card. While not instrumental to the gameplay it is a nice feature that allows one to learn more about the characters in the game.
Con *Spoilers* Perhaps the worst thing about this game is that the last 40% of the game literally makes you do the same thing over and over again.
Con Too much banter
Often there are cut-scenes where all characters in ones group have conversations, this somewhat interrupts the gameplay and may be a nuisance for those that are not attached to the characters.
