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
Some people complain about Square/Enix moving away from the turn-based style of earlier Final Fantasy games, but that is not my complaint here. They are trying to modernize the look and feel of Final Fantasy while cutting down on the random battle encounters and tediousness of their older, trademark style. Therefore, I cannot fault them for trying out new things and taking new approaches. So, despite the fact that I am a huge fan of the older style turn-base strategy element of previous FF games, I am actually NOT disappointed by the combat.
I'm disappointed in the story. I'm disappointed in the weak character development and the jerky, random "story" cut scenes that provide little to no concept of the overall arc of the story line itself. I'm disappointed that it's a band of 4 dudes running around in the car doing crappy side quests and none of them have much of a personality. And the only female character in the early part of the game is a big-boobed, half-naked grand daughter of Cid that fixes up your ride. It's unfortunate how she lends no other depth to the story of her own and is relegated to this menial portrayal. It's quite pathetic, in fact, to have such a shallow female protagonist in this type of game at this stage in society. It's all too vanilla for me.
Even when the main character is struggling, it's not really a struggle. He's simply trying to find this girlfriend so they can get married. Big deal, right? I kept waiting for things to get interesting in this game (story-wise), but the pacing is all wrong. It feels like there is basically little urgency in taking on the main quests, because nothing is really at stake if you don't.
So, I basically just ended up riding around doing bounty hunts and fulfilling side quests to power up my party and develop my Acension skills. I tricked out my chocobos with different colors and names, chased after weapon upgrade quests and weapon tombs and I even explored fishing quite a bit. While these are all great secondary attractions to the main game, there is a problem with that: nothing ever pushed me to do the main quest. I just kept ignoring it because, quite frankly, it seemed rather boring what was happening with the prince's little emo life. I can't even call him emo, because he's not even really sad that his girlfriend is not around anyway.
There are three things that make any typical Final Fantasy game exceptional: 1. Story 2. Combat 3. Graphics. I put those things in my personal priority. They have accomplished #3, for sure, because graphically this is one of the best looking games you can find anywhere. #2 will divide peoples preferences, but I personally think the combat is not terrible. While it does not have much complexity to it like the days of old, it's not the WORST combat system I have ever played, either. On point #1 it's a total waste of time. Really, point #1 is what USED to separate Final Fantasy games from all others. Now days it seems like they have pretty much lost that magic.
Graphics - a large, open world that looks absolutely stunning, and really has amazing detail.
Music - As typical of final fantasy games, the music and score was immaculate.
Battle system - I personally love the action-based battle system in this game. The only other titles I've played in this series were the active-turn based system, but it feels more gratifying to actually master a technique instead of simply pushing a command button and having the character act it out like a puppet. Plus, it offers a challenge, as pure melee attacks are a quick way to die as you progress to the more difficult enemy battles.
THE STORY. I didn't enjoy the overall story. Without going into spoiling details, it felt like Square Enix's version of the Book of Job. The first couple of chapters of this game took a long but enjoyable time to complete with the sidequests. But by chapter 8, it really felt like the game grabbed you by the arm and pulled you in a linear direction towards the finish line (However, you can return to the open-world to level up and prepare to face the final bosses).
Much like the other FF games I've played, the final bosses were a joke compared to the optional bosses and dungeons, which felt anti-climactic. But if you want to complete this game as quickly as possible and stick to the main quest line, they should pose a much better challenge.
I'd still recommend this game, especially in terms of the music and visuals.
