Hi guys! Today I will talk about Final Fantasy XV. As always, the review will have four parts, firstly I will talk about the storyline, then about the gameplay, afterward, I will talk about the visuals and finally, I will tell you my personal thoughts and give you a rating for the game from 0-10 (10 being the best).

The story of Final Fantasy XV revolves around prince Noctis and his three friends as they travel to the place where Noctis is going to get married. A lot happens in that journey which I won’t reveal here, but one thing that I have to say is that it turns out that that place isn’t their final destination.
The story is very good, the only problem with it, is that in order to fully understand it, you have to watch the movie that is a tie-in to the game and probably the anime series too. I watched the movie, but not the anime.
I personally prefer the game to tell me everything I need to know about it and not force me to watch other things in order to get a better understanding of what is going on.
The movie was good, but I don’t like games doing this type of thing.
Now let’s talk about the combat system. The combat in Final Fantasy XV, isn’t something great. It is good, but not something that will make you remember it and hope they do something similar to this again.
In combat, you have 4 different weapons that you can swap and items that you can use. The items include spells and different types of elixirs. The problem for me is that the spells are limited meaning that you can run out of them and then you have to make new ones.
Basically, spells are like items that you have to replenish in order to use.
I didn’t like that aspect of the game and I think they could implement spells in a different way that is less annoying and tedious(because you have to gather energy from sources that are scattered across the map in order to make new spells and that is very frustrating).
The combat is somewhat repetitive since you do the same thing most of the time, meaning you use the gap closer then you spam the attack button till the enemy dies and then do this all over again for the other enemies.
Of course, you can also use some spells to add some variety to the fights, but since they are limited and if you run out of them then you have to go around the map to gather energy from sources to make more, it isn’t a good idea to use spells often(I usually kept them for when they were absolutely necessary.
The difficulty of the game is pretty average. I didn’t find the game challenging enough, but each person has a different opinion on what is challenging and what isn’t. Personally, I find games challenging only when they are at Sekiro level difficulty.
The visuals of Final Fantasy XV are truly outstanding, the scenery is breathtaking and when you play is like you watch a movie. The downside is that the game requires you to have good PC specs to fully enjoy this experience since average graphics card won’t be able to handle this game on the highest settings.
One more downside to this game is that it doesn’t have many customization options for your character. The outfits are very limited, and I think they missed a good opportunity here.
Final Fantasy XV is a very good game with an entertaining story. Personally, I loved the character of Noctis and the story of FFXV.
The combat isn’t something special and they could have done some things differently in that regard. For those that want something challenging, I have to say that you will be disappointed, not that the game is easy but its not dark souls level of difficulty.
Lastly, the visuals are amazing and some of the best I have seen even by today’s standards.
I don’t recommend buying the game at full price. I believe you should wait for a sale.
General Rating: 9.3
