After the crystal is stolen by an invading nation, Niflheim, a global conflict ensues with all other nations wishing to gain it for themselves. Alongside the main protagonist, Noctis is joined by a military tactician Ignis Scienta, who can deftly handle a katana in battle, a melee fighter named Gladiolus Amicitia, gun-wielding Prompto Argentum, and head of the Royal Family Guards Cor Leonis. There's one other character that appears to get close with Noctis, even if her connection with him is still unknown. Her name is Stella Nox Fleuret, she seems to be strong and fight well with her rapier. Against this backdrop of a world at war, Noctis Lucis Caelum and his closest friends embark on an epic journey to try and get the crystal back. Expand

    Final Fantasy XV may not feel like an older game from the franchise, but that doesn't mean it's bad. I grew up with the older Final Fantasy game and while XV is different, that doesn't make it a bad game in the franchise. I enjoyed my time spent in game and look forward to doing more.

    This version of FFXV does deliver a much more complete experience and fixes many of the issues present in the original. It was a great adventure when it came out, and now it's better than ever.

    Even with its faults, from the weird two-halves of the story to the often poorly designed and uninteresting side-quests, Final Fantasy XV feels like a triumph. Discovering a new location or seeing a giant monster for the first time, Final Fantasy XV constantly surprises. And thanks to its likeable cast of heroes, provides as memorable an animated adventure of a boy band in a world filled with monsters could possibly be.

    All in all, Final Fantasy XV Windows Edition is the best console-to-pc port that Square Enix has produced to date. On top of that, the Royal Edition is the best version of Final Fantasy XV – so far, and even if only just. The route taken to get here has been a bumpy one, needlessly long with and perhaps without the most efficient direction, but the journey here has left us at a better place than we were at starting out.

    Final Fantasy XV’s beautiful graphics and exciting fights unfortunately come with a confusing story, irritating characters, long and unnecessary cutscenes, and optimization issues.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. First of all: FF 15 is the only game I have spent 50 hours playing because it was a funny and a very interesting experience til the end. In the FF Order it is the best FF to me (without having played yet FF 7 remake + FF 16).

    Pros:
    - Graphics: amazing, e.g. using magic against Ifrit - Storyline: Noctis seeking some kind of revenge for his father‘s death - Battle System: Real-time with great characters - Difficulty: Game offeres a wide range (e.g. easy playing: using loot and walkthrough and more sophisticated using the straight way)
    - Worlds: Fantastic variety from friendly to dark places The only weakness of the game is showing depth in the feelings of the main characters by using more high-profile cut scenes (e.g. FF 13-1 // Jedi: Fallen Order).

Yoko Shimomura known from the Kingdom Hearts series outdid herself with some of her best Soundtracks she ever created in this game. This all packed within an engaging and sometimes Breathtaking Story is a must play in my opinion ! Expand

Compared to the console counterparts, especially XBOX ONE, this game looks lush and fluid and actually loads fast. It's understandable that people have the issues they have with the game, but the developers have been honest and upfront with improvements and I admire that. Maybe, FFXV isn't perfect, but if you are going to play this game this is the version to go with! Expand

    Way better than the XIII but still behind the PS1 PS2 era.
    The action combact was fine but too repetitive and overall very easy to win
