Final Fantasy XVI is a true masterpiece that demonstrates the incredible evolution of the Final Fantasy series. With its engaging storyline, memorable characters, refined gameplay mechanics, stunning graphics, and captivating music, it offers a gaming experience that will linger in the hearts of players long after the credits roll. Square Enix has once again proven its ability to deliver a breathtaking and unforgettable adventure that pushes the boundaries of what an RPG can achieve. Whether you’re a longtime fan of the series or a newcomer, Final Fantasy XVI is an absolute must-play that showcases the brilliance of the franchise and sets a new standard for the genre.
In a world full of games trying to stand out, Final Fantasy XVI has no problem rising above the rest. Wonderfully fun combat and beautiful presentation help make the excellent story even more impactful in an adventure well worth the price of admission. This is one that will surely sit with players for many years to come and will surely be one for the history books.
Nothing short of a technical marvel, Clive Rosfield and Torgal are among some of the best character action duos and their 70-hour epic adventure across Valisthea will forever be remembered in Final Fantasy XVI
Final Fantasy XVI is an excellent starting point for the Square Enix saga, which after several missteps seems to have found the right balance between the tradition of the franchise and a blatantly more mature new ethic. By focusing everything on a complex narrative and dedicating maniacal care to the construction of the world, Yoshida's dream team has however neglected the rhythm of the story, which in addition to reserving some less inspired moments, even slows down the growth of the character.
Final Fantasy 16 is a bold new benchmark for the series that puts emotional complexity and courageous world building at the forefront. Clive Rosfield’s epic journey is defined by constant bouts of hurt and tragedy, but it’s also lined with an inescapable aura of hope in how our heroes are fighting for a world worth saving. Every person you meet and village saved from ruin are worth protecting, with heartfelt dialogue and ferocious combat mixing together in service of an RPG that, while flawed and glacial in some spots, I’d struggle to label as anything other than a triumph.
Final Fantasy XVI delivers on the “action” side of its action-RPG formula. A fierce and fast-paced combat system makes for the series’ most exciting stab at real-time swordplay yet, while its blockbuster Eikon fights rank among some of gaming’s most awe-inspiring battles. But there’s a general flatness surrounding those exhilarating highs, as shallow RPG hooks and dated design leave a promising evolution for the series stuck in the past.
A step back for the whole franchise, and the worst Final Fantasy game I've ever played in over 20 years of gaming.
Sacrifice all the jrpg elements, between losing the party, losing the secret dungeons, losing the post game, and losing the strategies just for build a easy action game without element weaknesses it was a mistake.
Because imply the complete linearity of the whole experience (in fact the linear level design of the maps are horribles), that when it ends don't leave literally nothing to the player.
Expect the disappointment of having suffered the badly written dialogues between the flat characters, in the flat, empty and monochromatic world
One of the worst action games I've ever played.
The gameplay it so bad that you can basically die.
And the plot is just a train wreck for the first hour to the last.
Characters dialogues are trash tier, just like the linear level design, and it's lacking in all the contents outside of the main plot.
It severally disappoint all my expectations.
