    A King's Tale: Final Fantasy XV isn't anything special, nor is it essential to understanding the main game you're buying into, so don't bust the doors down tonight trying to get a pre-order in. But at the same time, proponents of old school beat-'em-ups will enjoy a few hours of fun, which counts for something.

    For a free side course of Final Fantasy XV goodness, you can't go wrong with A King's Tale. It's nothing special – either as a new entry to the narrative or as a 2D brawler – but it provides some depth to a character that lacked development which, in turn, further expands upon the personality of Noctis and his relationship with Regis. Despite some lazy moments of design and unnecessarily repetitive combat sequences, there's a couple of hours of fun to be had here with a surprisingly good combat system and a nice, nostalgia-inducing presentation.

    A King's Tale is an interesting tie-in to the popular yet polarizing Final Fantasy XV. Retro fans will probably despise it due to its awful interpretation of classic beat 'em ups but its simple gameplay is easily digestible for casual gamers.

The story is nothing special and doesn't really add much to the Final Fantasy XV mythos, but it's still worth a try if you are really invested into Final Fantasy. Expand

    This is a 2D hack-and-slash RETRO game.
    + Combat Mechanism
    + Combat Flow
    + Enemy Design
    + Some interesting challenge levels after main story (not all)
    + Magic can somehow affect the environment like FFXV itself (froze the lake, for example)
    + The game is free for all after 2 months
    - Unrelated and void main story
    - No scene design. You are fighting enemies from one rectangle to another rectangle
    - Only one boss fight and not very smartly designed

If we take this game in comparison to some similar arcade games, I think A King's Tale is even better than many of them. More importantly, it is completely free. Expand
