Combat is the high point. It took some getting used to, but once you start zipping around and using your teammates abilities it can be entertaining, if honestly a little mindless. Attacking has you holding down circle, dodging/blocking is holding down square, and the real strategy comes down to positioning behind enemies to maximize damage and making sure you don't run out of MP. Magic amounts to throwing out massive elemental grades that, at least in my experience, end up taking out your AI companions charging in as often as they take out you. You can add extra effects through the magic crafting system, but at least in the story quests it wasn't necessary. I have friends who loved combat enough to pour 100+ hours into the game and do all the late game hunts. It didn't grab me that way, but I just didn't find the depth there to justify that. Maybe it changes with later boss fights and end game hunt quests.
The open world of the game, the big new modernization part for the series, has a lot of potential. It's a wonderfully weird place, with strange rock arcs, a giant meteor in the middle, and varied other environments. But an beautiful open world doesn't matter much if there isn't anything worth doing in it. Most of the side quests are of an early WoW/FFXI school of thought. Go here and get the rocks, fetch this item for me, go take some pictures. There are hunts that are fun since they offer good challenges and actually take advantage of the game's combat system. Getting around the world also becomes pretty dull. The road trip vibe of the game is nice and interesting at first, but after about 5 hours in I was just browsing Twitter on my phone while the car would auto drive for 3 to 10 minutes to a quest location. The game features an auto travel system, but the load times are pretty long. And at night powerful creatures come out that can murder you pretty easily, so roughly every 20 to 40 minutes of play time you're stopping to find a camp spot or hotel so you can get day light again to do things. There's just a lot of down time in the game where you aren't actively doing anything.
The story just doesn't have the development it needs to be compelling. Story quests give you random busy work, characters leave and appear with little explanation. Important moments happen off screen and are just told to you later. Or in the case of the beginning of the game, you need to watch an entire other movie. You fight a boss who is a chummy side kick literally the next major story mission. There were a lot of moments where I just shrugged and said "Ok, sure... I guess". The set up of the prince trying to take down the evil empire should give you a lot of momentum for a road trip quest of vengeance and instead its "Go patch a hole in the boat, go steal your car back, go on a date with girl, clear out this power plant".
I can understand why someone would like this game, but I wouldn't really recommend it over games that do similar things better. And with games nowadays asking for literal days of your life, I just found too much of my time with this game boring to outweigh the fun moments.
They did a decent job, but there are so many missed opportunities with this game compared to something like Horizon: Zero Dawn, which came out a little bit later and hits on all cylinders.
