Some steps forward some steps back and many not moved either way. Better than 13 series at least.

I disagree with what's being said on the music, characters and combat though.

They're all very different, but I love how human the characters feel, without even needing too much cutscenes to show that. They actually FEEL like friends.

ALso, yeah, the combat is never really challenging to be honest, but I find it really fun, so I'm okay with that, even though I have yet to experience a truely challenging battle (but still, let's admit it, we rarely beat a boss thanks to our sick strats, we simply grinded like mad men :P /j )

Also, stellar OST imo.

Just because you have an opinion doesn't mean you are necessarily right.

The thing is this game was never meant to be the main line Final Fantasy Game thats why it was called versus 13. And Square Enix had no choice but to turn this game into a numbered Final Fantasy, if i remember correctly some western studio was supposed to be developing Final Fantasy 15 in space like mass effect. but that project got canned, and with Versus 13 being 35 t0 40% completed, Nomura dark vision, and multiple entries i guess square decided to make changes to the game to fit the main line series hence tabata comes in. So the game we are seeing now is half of Nomura's vision and other half slapped on by SE to be XV.

Grin was making a Final Fantasy but it was not a mainline. Just a spinoff. Grin was asked to develop many Japanese franchises. Bionic Commando both Rearmed (awesome game)and the 2009 Wife Arms game that was awful and Strider which had a much more realistic tone and look (looked like shit TBH and glad we got the Double Helix 2014 game instead ) and Final Fantasy Fortres



It's nice to be able to see some of the complaints and draw the conclusion that they're probably just upset that it isn't menu-based.

That would be dumb to try and do a space game.

1. Just make a new Star Ocean if want space.

2. Make a new series

Both scenerios, they should not call if Final Fantasy. They would only be doing so for sales. THey know they would get massive hype/sales just from name alone. It could be a reskinned Mass Effect and you would have a million people saying its better than Mass Effect cause it has FF in the name.

You sound like the people who say DMC fans hate DmC because of hair.

And you make it sound like that never played a role.



I personally want future games to be more like FFIX..

As a DMC fan. It didn't.



I've put about 9 hours in. I don't hate it. I hated FFXIII. I agree with Nem about FFXV being similar to Xenoblade. In fact, FFXV seems be a poor man's Xenoblade. I also agree that the NPCs seem almost completely disconnected from the war. Noctis and crew don't seem heavily affected as well outside of their initial reaction. It's a decent so far. I had no expectations of quality. So I'm not sure if the game is solid or if my view is colored by expecting so little in the first place. The story seems meh but much to my surprise, I enjoy the interactions between Noctis and his friends. It's the games strong suit in my view.
