Then suddenly you're thrown into the "second half". The story pace picks up exponentially. Plot points are mentioned and then dropped to never be explored again. Your friendly sidekicks become much quieter. The promise of a vast open world to explore is cast aside in favor of a railroaded experience. It almost feels like you're playing the Cliff's Notes version of what’s supposed to be there. Between the immensely strong first half and end is a whole middling portion of what appears to be very crunched development time.
In order to address this, there are character-focused DLC campaigns available, each taking place in an unexplored part of the story. Three have been published so far, with three (or more) to come. I appreciate new content. I just wish they were integrated better into the base game, one way or another. To show how disconnected the experience can be: during the journey, one of your companions gets injured. They never explain what causes it or why it causes your other companion to be so angry. Once you play through the DLC, you realize what they did was really important and it elaborates on some unclear parts of the plot. If you're the type to be invested into the story and want to understand what's going on, I would say buying this DLC is not optional at all. It contains parts of the story that should've been in there in the first place. There is an upcoming “Royal Update” DLC that also adds new dialogue and greatly expands upon underdeveloped areas in the base game.
That isn't to say that missing content is completely locked behind DLC. The developer, even for over a year since FFXV’s release date, continues to supply free patches that add in new content to the game. This is both a point that I am both appreciative and frustrated by. One of the new mechanics that was patched in is the ability to switch between the characters you control in battle. I played this game on release and I wish those features were there from the start. I’m only just revisiting it a year later because of hearing about all the patches and the upcoming PC version. Thankfully those who are picking up this game late will be able to enjoy a more feature-complete experience for their first playthrough.
For now, I will say: if you want to buy new, wait for the “Royal Edition” to be released in March 2018. It will contain the base game + all 3 currently released DLC chapters + multiplayer DLC + DLC items + “Royal Update” at a cheaper sum. Hopefully that alongside any upcoming patches in the future will make this game as complete as the developers envisioned.
Final Fantasy games have always been associated with delivering stunning graphics that push the boundary of what IS capable with current hardware. And Final Fantasy XV doesn’t disappoint. I doubt anyone would argue that the graphics of this game are anything less than amazing. I played this game on a PlayStation 4 Pro connected to an OLED television and I just couldn’t believe how good the game looked.
Combat System 8/10
The ol’ turned based system is left behind; in this game fighting occurs in real time. As you wonder throughout the open world enemies attack within a designated zone. Combat is fluid. You do, however, have the option to turn on the Wait Timer, which temporarily pauses the games action when not in motion allowing you to think out your strategy. I found this to be sufficient for those who miss turned based gameplay.
There are, however, some problems with this games combat. The AI system is daft. Elemancy (the magic system in this game) involves storing spells in grenade like containers to be released during battle. Game developers decided to make magic more real in the sense that a fire spell, for example, actually affects the game’s surrounding environment; meaning that characters get burned when running into fire that has been released from a fire spell. The AI system doesn’t direct companion characters away from the fire. Instead they stay there and take injury from burns, lol. Doesn’t make sense. The AI system makes battling with the three companions frustrating at times. In some fights it makes more sense to let them die leaving you to solo the boss.
The camera system also makes combat in this game a task at times. The camera would lock onto a tree or rock obscuring gameplay. This really annoyed me at times.
The summons are animated incredibly well. In this game, however, the player doesn’t have the ability to summon Astrals at will. Conditions have to be satisfied in order for a summon to appear; I both like and dislike this. Astrals are supposed to gods and so it makes sense that one shouldn’t be able command an Astral in full. There were fights, though, that lingered on without a summon appearing.
This is the weakest point of this game. I watched Kingsglaive prior to playing Final Fantasy XV and so I was somewhat prepared. But even I found the story choppy, incomprehensible and generic. There were events that occurred in the game’s story that weren’t followed through or explained. And this is quite poor considering Final Fantasy’s pedigree is associated with a compelling story. I would go further into the story but I don’t want to fill this review with spoilers.
Voice Acting 10/10
The actors who voiced these characters did a fantastic job. Mouths move and appeared to match the dialogue. Shout out to Darin De Paul who voice acted Ardyn, the games antagonist.
Game completion and content 10/10
It took me 56 hours to complete this game. I probably could’ve completed this game in approximately 40 hours. As a working adult with a lot less time to play games these days I definitely appreciate that it is capable to complete this game in such a short time. And there is A LOT of side and postgame content. One can easily spend 100 hours on this game. The only side quests I enjoyed in this game are the hunt side quests. They remind me of Monster Hunter but with ridiculously better graphics. I found all the other side quests boring and a waste of time but they aren’t necessary to complete the game so I don’t count them as a negative. If SquareEnix is going to keep hunts apart of future Final Fantasy games then I think they should make hunts more complete in that sequential hunts climax into one complete side story.
I have played Final Fantasy VII, VIII, IX, X, X-2 and I can definitely say this game is a worthy addition to the Final Fantasy franchise. Perhaps the most important goal this game achieved is leaving me excited for the remake of Final Fantasy VII
