    Final Fantasy XV is a must play for this end of the year. It features a concise narrative storyline but a massive amount of side quests in a huge open world to elevate the game's longevity beyond a hundred hours.

    Final Fantasy XV: Royal Edition and the integrated Royal Pack is an enjoyable expansion making it the definitive edition to play Final Fantasy XV. That is until we get its true “complete edition” in the future.

    Gradual improvements mean FFXV is in slightly better shape than it was when it launched in December 2016, but it'll take more than a few additional cutscenes to make its story feel complete. [May 2018, p.96]

    The Royal Pack is a well-realized bundle of miscellany that refines the core Final Fantasy XV experience while reminding us that it's still an incomplete game sixteen months after launch.

    We know that Final Fantasy XV: Royal Edition won't be the definitive edition of the game, since more DLC is scheduled. This is the most complete and most beautiful edition of the game thus far, but it's asking you to buy into a very good but still flawed experience that is slowly but surely catching up. If you truly can't wait until the real complete edition surfaces, you'll have a decent experience at the very least. Otherwise, pass on this title and wait another year. The mammoth project that is FFXV will eventually come to a satisfying conclusion.

    The Royal Edition of Final Fantasy XV -due to its huge content- is targeted towards those who haven’t played the game in its initial release and for them it is a highly recommend game. On the other hand, the appreciable new content does not last long and as a result -for those who have played the original version- it can’t be a strong enough motivation to return to Eos.

    Although I appreciate what the Royal Pack has brought to the lore of Insomnia, its paltry additions may only appeal to the most hardcore fans who don’t mind replaying the definitive edition of a single chapter. If you’ve never played Final Fantasy XV, the Royal Edition or Windows Edition, both of which have all the DLC – including the character episodes and bonus content not present in the Royal Pack – is the way to go.

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

    Like the windows edition, this also contains all the DLC and QoL updates, so if you have yet to jump into FFXV yet now is the time to do so.

    Simply recommended this FFXV, especially if you like rich games, with an open world that is beautiful to look at and beautiful to explore.
    {and even if you like epic Lores like those of classic Final Fantasy games}
    With lots of wonderful unique and absolutely creative dungeons to explore and sometimes even surprising.
    Fun gameplay, beautiful storyline, charismatic and excellently crafted characters. My favorites are Ignis and Ardyn.
    For all these reasons and more, such as the incredible OST and the spectacular graphics of the Summons, I can only recommend this spectacular game.

The menu takes time to get used to but its worthwhile once you learn the controls and all the elements and weapons, etc. I downloaded this game for free on Playstation + and its absolutely worth it. Not my favorite final fantasy game though. Expand

    I don't want to fight for hours only for leveling up. Trying to leveling up is really difficult
