    As a symbol of this promised peace, Noctis, crown prince of Lucis, is to wed the Lady Lunafreya of Tenebrae.

    It may not have the cutting-edge visuals of its full-fledged source material, or its open world, but it certainly has its soul.

    In TV mode, in fact, the technical sector suffers from a downsizing of its graphical performance, which sometimes results in decisive drops in fluidity.

    Final Fantasy XV: Pocket Edition HD is a weird game to review. While it doesn't exactly fill an RPG-sized hole, it’s still fun to play. The challenge might be lacking, but it is fun going through the motions.

    For those that have already wandered the world of Eos, there is little reason to relive the crown prince’s journey in Final Fantasy XV Pocket Edition HD. It is, however, the perfect choice for those that haven’t and, fearing the need to grind out levels, would prefer to play this condensed option. It’s not without its shortcomings, and, despite the commendable depth, battles soon descend into repetition. But, all in all, it can still charm and entertain.

    This is an interesting way of discovering Final Fantasy XV, although it’s way too easy and simple. If that’s how you want to experience the game, it’s not a bad option, though.

    Final Fantasy XV Pocket Edition HD is very linear and streamlined but manages to be some mindless fun, especially if you found the original game too bloated and wish for a cute, interactive recap.

    Final Fantasy XV Pocket Edition HD is the sort of game that you play and then wonder why exactly it needs to exist. Though it does a great job of capturing the spirit of Final Fantasy XV in several ways, it drops the ball in some others, resulting in an inferior facsimile of a game that is already seen as something of a rough gem. There’s very little reason to give Pocket Edition HD a go if you’ve already played Final Fantasy XV, and if you haven’t, we’d give this a tenuous recommendation at best. There are many moments where the live-action combat is satisfying and the cutesy visuals are charming, but this is hardly something that we’d say should be close to the top of your wish list.

I think this is the perfect "Pocket" edition. It gives you all the story bits and cuts out most of the fluff that the full game had. I don't mind it, if you're just wanting to experience the story, this is the perfect way to do so especially if you're short on time, I like usually am. Expand

    2) ability to play on a HD TV.
    3) don't want to drain your phone's battery.

    Everything else you can find on separate reviews. Is a summarized version of FFXV, focused only on the big story, delivers a fast enjoyable combat system and a cartoony artwork. The voice acting is there, the amazing soundtrack is also there.

    I would recommend to anyone that does not own a PS4 or XB1 and wants to play through the story on a console.

    I haven´t finished the game yet, will update the review, but take into consideration, that in the mobile version once the credits roll, there is really not much to do.

    However, even with all that, it is still a good game.

    Looks great and controls are good BUT this game lacks depth. It's final fantasy. It deserves better. I never played on iOS so was hoping playing on console would add depth or better gameplay than a mobile game. The truth is it does not. There are better games for the same price ie dead cells. I should have bought hyper light drifter instead.

    Un port demasiado directo de una versión móvil y mal optimizado. le habría sentado muy bien algunos cambios al dar el salto a consolas.
