    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.

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.

At first I was extremely disappointed (maybe because I was expecting TOO much) and I was quick to dismiss this game as another failed FF. However, after playing for 10 hours, and getting used to controls, mechanics, etc. I can now say this game is a gem.

    It is truly different then any other console FF besides tactics. Fighting is fast, quick, and requires skill and planning while motivating you to master it. Story is not told overly well (yet) but so far it is a very dark story for a FF. The theme is War.

    I will not mention graphics like other morons, as I know better then to expect a game that was on PSP to be remastered on PS4 looking like Uncharted 4. The character models are very nice. Everything else screams PSP. But if you are here to enjoy a wonderful GAME, then graphics should not hinder your decision.

    If you were disappointed in the last 4 FF games, feel relieved that this game is actually good. :)

    Let´s see what is good and what is bad.

    Pros:1-Fast paced 2-Lightning is not present 3-LOTS OF PANTSU 4-The AKademia is a nice place , i like it.

    Cons:1-Terrible camera(almost unplayable sometimes) 2-Unfair combat(almost one hit kill for everything , suicidal AI makes your companions useless) 3-Generic story 4-Annoying voice cast even in japanese 5-Repetitive scenarios 6-empty world

    Not a terrible game , but a this is not final fantasy.

Trying toThis is a PSP game and you can clearly see it, the camera controls are awful. The mechanics of the game aren't that great either. Trying to play this after playing the FFXV demo is simply too much I may have to wait a few months to forget FFXV to try again.

    There's a lot to learn in the game and I often find it confusing to what I am doing. Its not worth the full price...
