Pro Good for casuals
The game doesn't overly punish you for dying, and it's possible to change your stats at a late stage in the game in case you make a mistake. It's also possible to master all the skills in the game, meaning you don't have to devote to just one. While it's not an MMORPG, it's a great introduction to the genre for new players.
Pro Tons of content
There are 12 classes to choose from, with a large world full of plenty of dungeons. There's also an expansion for $9 if you want more content. You can play as all 12 classes in one game, making all that content available to all players.

Multiplayer in Fantasy Life lets you bring other players directly into the game and lets them fight in your party in real time, so you can co-operate to take down harder bosses, and strategize with different abilities.
Pro Lots of customization
You can customize every aspect of your character. Your face is completely customizable with different hair, eye, ear, nose, and mouth styles.
