    Type-0 HD has everything a FF fan could ask for: A superb battle system, lots of characters, hours upon hours of interesting quests and a great story. It is quite strange, but the best Final Fantasy game of the recent years is a port from a PSP game.

    It's been a while since we played a Final Fantasy entry as we did with Final Fantasy Type-0 HD. An all-round plot and a remarkable interaction are the pillars of a really good remaster.

    It is a very unique Final Fantasy that relies on a very solid combat system to help us go through some challenging situations. If you love the franchise as much as we do, it won't disappoint you.

    Final Fantasy Type-0 HD won't satisfy every fan of the series, but it is a good offer that deserves a try, specially because it is a spin-off. Type-0 HD has minor flaws, but thanks to its interesting history, formidable soundtrack and large amount of characters, missions and past references, it offers great replay value, a rare quality among games nowadays.

    Final Fantasy Type-0 HD features an engaging combat system and a great universe to explore, making for a stellar JRPG, with it a distinctive style and tone. However, the experience is hampered by too many protagonists, a clunky camera and the fact that the HD-remastering is less than optimal in oh so many different ways.

    Final Fantasy Type-0 may have started life as a PSP game, but its mysterious world and fast-paced combat are still an exciting mix. Shame about the voice acting and interface, though.

    Type-0 HD's many technical shortcomings may have been forgiven if it were ported to the PS Vita instead of a current-gen console. Despite including stalwarts like chocobos, Odin, Moogles, Airships and a major character named Cid, Type-0 HD did not feel like a Final Fantasy product, especially in terms of quality.

    At first I wasn't convinced this game was worth the $60.00 tag, but after playing it I'm convinced it is.

This game is an 8.5, but I'm giving it a ten to try and offset the really low score reviews.

    True, it's not a visual masterpiece, but many of great game aren't always visually stunning.

    And, no, you do not need a guide to play this game. This games requires you to read a lot and search out objectives. To me, the formula is perfect. I grew up playing video games before they even had dialogue audio. I had to read everything to understand what was going on. Gaming felt lazier, but cooler, when I had to just listen to the story told to me. The gameplay is great. Contrary to some reviewers, you can cure in the middle of combat. True, you cannot revive fallen comrades in battle, but you can use a Phoenix Down as soon a she battle ends. And all your teammates are revived as soon as you enter a town or start a new mission. And with seventeen characters, there's no need to revive in combat, you can effectively switch them out.

    The camera can be a little tricky, but so as long as you maintain a lock on your target you don't have to worry about missing.

    I'm always skeptical with games that market a wide range of main characters, I find the often result is a very bland underdeveloped group of individuals and this unfortunately did fall into that trap, you really didn't get much substance to the characters other then a very touching cut scene towards the end of the game that I did enjoy but wished there were more of.

I purchased the game as a Final Fantasy veteran, loving the franchise since its start. Unfortunately this game just gives square enix a terrible name. The gameplay is just super sloppy for starts: 1. The left right movement for vision is way too sloppy, doesn't seem like they put any effort into correcting that issue, which is unacceptable when trying to bring this to a nextgen system. 2. The graphics are definitely not HD, and yes i understand its originally for a handheld but where did they make improvements worthy for it to be on a PS4 and not a PS2? 3. The battling is really chaotic with you being unable to strategize, unlike the old turn-based FF games. Your squad mates go and do what they want, getting themselves killed or getting in your way as you try to adjust your screen (using the horrible migraine-giving mechanics). What was so bad about turn-based FF and the strategizing that came with it? 4. The storyline is pretty cheap. Overall I think that is what happens when Square Enix (CHINA) is put in charge of fixing up a game for the PS4. Disgraceful.
    Now for the good stuff... There are a lot of characters to choose from, which is pretty cool, the opening scene was pretty nice, but that's basically all the positive feedback I have to give.
    If you want to spend money on a FF game, do not go for the FFT-0 "HD". It's a waste of 60+ dollars that could be spent on a far more superior game. At most buy it, beat it, return it.
