Anyone one else lowballing on the basis that the franchise simply doesnt have the same brand power it used too??
Like look at what FFXIII managed despite many calling it the worst game ever, then look at what its superior sequels received.

FFXIII wasn't a bad game,  the problem is that the Serie's standard is very high

The problem is that it dropped way too much stuff people expect from FF, not that the standard is high (which it is).
There was no exploration basically the whole game, barely any weapons, cutscenes popping up after each 3 steps (they used to be special pieces).
It has a good story, and I personally liked the paradigm shift gameplay mechanic, but sadly even those two had clear weak points, the paradigm shift could be easily abused and let the game play itself and the story presentation, even filled with cutscenes, was not the best as a lot of info had to be searched instead of delivered to you.

Yes, it wasn't a bad game, but it wasn't only because the other games were better.

This is how the score will be.

- Old FF fan type reviewers will rate it 0, cus: doesnt feel like FF; no playable chicks, no turn based, etc etc
- Millennial reviewers will rate it 100: GTA5xMonsterHunter, bros before hoes, gravity-defying hair, etc etc
- Those two even out at 50.
- Other reviewers never rate under 50, so it'll jack the score up a bit.
- Final score... 64

The problem is that FF fans are incapable of rating a FF game anything lower than 70. Which will mean that it lands in the undeserved 80s range.

Your game now belongs to the Bethesda fandom. Conform or be destroyed by Alduin's shout! 



It was Britain, it is America, tomorrow France and next year, the world... 

Warning: This poster has a very negative opinion of Sony and Nintendo, Idea Factory and companies Tecmo Koei, EA, BioWare, Blizzard, Treyarch, Infinity Ward, Kadokawa and Sega. If you have very positive views of these and a negative view of Microsoft or Bethesda Game Studios, AVOID ENGAGEMENT AT ALL COSTS! 

83 same meta score as FFXIII but user rating will be higher than XIII.
