There aren't many other games in the world that can harness as much excitement as a new Final Fantasy game, and developers Square-Enix are at it again with the next iteration in the grand series: Final Fantasy XV. From slaying giant beasts, to finishing hundreds of hours of game play and countless quests, this game is sure to be a major undertaking for anyone who dares to travel the massive sandbox. So we're here to help. Here are 15 things we think you should know before you buy the game.

Turning a Final Fantasy game into open world is a big mistake, it received the bad open world cliches that you already expect. The driving segment is real bad, its a cheap way for the game to treat its player like "look at at this great massive graphics, impressive huh?" feel into it. Really, the open world is just out of place and unnecessary.
The main story itself doesn't have weight and cant hold much much of its own. If you are playing strictly in the "main game" the story and lore is weak. You have to rely on Kingsglaive and Brotherhood to at least appreciate what is going on in the world.
So who is enjoying the camera angles in battles?
My favorites are when you start combat near any forested area, how it blocks any view of Noctit or the enemies for more than 85% of the battle... Love those! Fantastic camera work Square!
Unfortunately the game is near impossible to beat without the patch, it's the only game I've had that constantly stops being read every 45-75minutes making it very frustrating trying to rush and skip shit in areas with no checkpoints.. Not to mention the extra scenes that were cut due to disc space. I wasn't able to install the patch till after chapter 6. So just in case anyone reads this that haven't bought the game yet and you experience the same problems I was then don't worry too much about it, more than likely it's a patch fix so get it as soon as you can before actually starting it
Tutorials I never really liked. I say "if you can't pick up on controls fast, how do you expect to git gud?" :) I mean, for PC it might make sense, but even then just plaster the control scheme in the options menu like always and have an optional help menu. I welcome this optional tutorial thing.
With sidequests, really only hunts are useful for the gil. The items from them can be largely useless if it is an accessory.
I don't know about the flying car either... I was hoping for something like an airship. Something that actually looks amazing. FFIX was the last of the greats when it came to that stuff. Their whole world was open, grand, had lots of depth to it, and you had so much you could do on every continent. It was built for flight. This one... Painful to walk or even drive in. Even chocobos not as fun. Car on rails, too much far and few between for everything, if you are not painfully strong, then you often wind up being painfully weak. Such an imbalance.
Also, what the hell happened to all the cities? There is one you visit by chapter 3, but it has very little depth to it. I need a new FF to get me back to the series, but so far none. This last one is good, looks beautiful. In fact, the main 4 plus the first girl you meet are only eye candy. Yeah, I just wished 10 years would have translated to living up to the hype.
Nr 13 is wrong since u have Limitations till you do some story stuff
Nr 10 is also bullshit the characters dont have separated Grids they are all in the same Grid in different categories
Nr 06 If they ever said the Day 1 Patch is small they lied its lik 8-9 GB to download
Also where is that footage from there are some Spoilers.
i wish they would of made a lil fun free roam mode as animals any creature win battle n eat to gain exp n survive n level up n unlock new creatures n live to se another day or months or maybe years with the animal character own life span growing n getting to adult stage or may beat the old king n become the king of my kind with my own territorry starting challenges or being challeng by another alpha n fighting of predators to best way the animal gender can bein a predator hunting or bein an grazer i would love to b a crocidile n more i wish they would add that just for more fun. final fantasy 15(wildlife mode) or playing as any enemy or foe ohh how amazing that would be to have in the final fantasy 15 the best multi fungame u can do anything the fantasy world lets u do animal machaninichs with a ragdoll doll
yeah NO GOOD, game looks like they put so much garbage in it , it will suck. , thats how they do video games today all polish and filler no real personality or decent gameplay. Its like you don't have to even grind or memorize when playing these games, just do tons of time events and you end up playing an interactive movie ugh, looks like the summons are the basis for the primary storyline, which will be boring, character designs are bland. ff 13 kinda sucked but at least their characters were some what creative and the summons seemed more badass.
You obviously haven't watched the movie that introduces many of the characters and provides insight into what led up to this game story-wise, nor have you watched the short anime series that goes into detail on the main characters and how their friendships started and developed. A lot of work has gone into the characters of FFXV.
That depends. !in order to understand the story no. In order to understand what a Final Fantasy game is, maybe. I m not die hard fan but started playing FFs in PS1. The first was FFVII and i still think i is the BEST video game i ve played in my entire life and many agree with me. What defined FFVII as the best RPG (and game in general) for me was
1. Good story with gradual evolution of the scenario with deviations and enlightenment of various aspects of the world.
2. Iconic characters.
3. Balanced combat system with the capacity of full party control that permitted you to get attached to basically all the characters.
4. Good customization and materia system which was unique. It made magic and phisical attacks being in good balance.
Finally from all this i feel that you have nothing in FFXV. The only plus you have is certainly great graphics. But be aware that you wont understand what a Final Fantasy game is. What i recommend you is to play FFVII or to wait for the Remake. Still i think that they might mess it up.
Seriously.... Bitch about Graphics????
Maybe Im to old... But Final Fantasy for me, is the story line.
I was already sold on Graphics in ff8....
BLOWN away with 10 for voice over.
Game play and story line. Thats it...
Dont worry, it looks great on Xbox one so itll only be better on everything else
It did have hiccups in framerate but its very playable
I want 'xbox one pro' so i can play games at 1080p 60fps--especially shooters.
I think that is the next big thing, then 4k 60fps.
Its a NEED at least at 1080. Cmon, its 2016 we can make it wrk :)
So bummed I wasn't able to pre-order FFXV. I'll be able to get it next
week when I'm paid though. I just find all the pre-order exclusives very
annoying. They should just include it in the game. If anyone has a
spare code for A Kings Tale or just plain don't want it, I would be
eternally grateful if you messaaged me the code! Also would appreciate
it if anyone had the Blazefire Saber code as well, as a XIII fan that
would make my life complete! I'd definitely prefer Kings Tale over it
Well, If your sitting on the couch playing FFXV and your thinking, 'these graphics are crap, what a let down', then I don't think the final fantasy series is for you, in fact I suggest you go back to the year 2100 where you came from, because this game looks stunning in every way!
Ive read some other comments on this video and it seems like the person who did the video is using a different defininition of HD than most people have. It will run between 900p and 1080p at at least 30 fps for nearly all parts of the game for ps4, and slightly less for xbox one
edit: also keep in mind additional improvements to game handling are coming in day one patch and will probably come in the future as well.
