This game was never aiming to be the best final fantasy game out there, yet stranger of paradise receives a cult following after its ridiculous dialogues and cheesy story. This final fantasy spin-off didn’t reinvent the wheel  for the franchise, but it does provide us with strong combat and final fantasy nostalgia along the way, destructoid gave it a score of 8.5/10 saving that “It’s a team ninja action game first in an oddball Isekai story, second it is weird but that’s how strange paradise lures new and old fans to the series and welcomes them with open arms for a crazy dose of chaos. The plot of the game is jack arrives in the kingdom of Cornelia, intent on destroying chaos whose darkness has begun to plague the world, and is quickly joined by two other warriors, Ash and Jed, who have a similar mission. They petition the king of Cornelia to allow them to enter the Shrine of Chaos and destroy chaos itself.
