TheI have strange and mixed feelings about the game. The main story is very good, and I have only minor complaint about some of its moments. The sidequests and stories are what good sidequests should be, all of them have a relevant story, lore and level designs, I have even less complaint about those, than the main storyline. But ultimately, I think the sidestories take away the urgency and the tension of the main story, diluting it a bit too much. So, here is where I am torn: the gameplay is a solid 10, the main story is a very good 9.5, the sidequests are nothing less than a 10. It should be a nobrainer to give this game a 10, right? I am still not sure...… Expand
Average User Score: 8.1Mar 16, 2018I want to admit right away: I did not like the game in the least. I would also like to admit that it deserves a higher score than 0 (II want to admit right away: I did not like the game in the least. I would also like to admit that it deserves a higher score than 0 (I originally scored it at 6), but when people give this port a 10, because "it is the best that you can get out of this not so good game", all the honest scores just fly out of the window. Now to my complaint with the game. I dread to think what FF15 was like before the numerous "improvements" and "fixes", because even now:
The plot is a boring mess that was possibly acceptable for a game that was released 30 years, but by today's standards the writing and pacing are slopping at best.
The combat is messy and uneven. Half of the time I had difficulties even understanding what was happening as four black clothed figures were trying to hack a group of uniformly colored enemies to pieces. Other times the combat was ending so quickly that I didn't even understand why it needed to be there at all.
The open world is one of the most boring ones I have ever seen. Empty and dull. But I must say that I might be biased on this one.
Overall: 6/10 If you like open world games you might score it a bit higher, but it doesn't deserve a 10 under any conditions.… Expand
