Is Final Fantasy XV really that bad? I’m really desperate for a Final Fantasy fix but I keep hearing some bad shit about it so I never bothered to play it. Is there any redeeming qualities to play it?

  1. the characters interactions are decent and you can feel attached to it so thats why some people like, but the game itself is barebones by design to sell more spin offs and DLCs, even the mechanics feels barebone.

  2. The gameplay itself is a barely-adequate ARPG that can hardly be called Final Fantasy, It would be excusable if it was a fresh IP from some obscure AA European dev. All style, no substance.

    What’s worse is that some retard at Squeenix wanted to get some big multimedia thing going so they gutted like half the plot so they could put it in "supplemental" material that’s vital to understanding anything. Without the novel, the film, and the DLC you’re strung along barely-connected events with no context.

  3. It’s a nice exploration game. The gameplay sucks, but it has some nice moments. Just don’t go in expecting an epic adventure, there are far better games if that’s what you’re looking for.

  4. It’s comfy-ish, and generally gorgeous. Performance is very hit-or-miss on PC, but I pushed through to the end. I appreciated the world, environment, and creature design, but the gameplay loop is pretty one-note with little to recommend it, and the plot is spotty at best and still feels underdeveloped, despite all the updates.

    That said, if you keep your expectations low-low-low-low-LOW, and approach it as a very pretty and well-scored walking simulator, you might get some pleasure out of it. Only pick it up if it goes on sale, though.
