Final Fantasy XV Kingsglaive continues the grand work from Square Enix and sets itself up as a notable addition to the Final Fantasy line, in particular one which portrays a gripping story filled with bold and well fleshed out characters surrounded by events of tragedy, hope and epicness.
As a Final Fantasy fan it is hard not to get excited about FFXV, I for one will be casting myself into the world of Eos looking to experience the journey awaiting me within as we learn more about Niflheim, Lucis, the war, the demons, the crystals, the magic, the characters and the adventure.
Refreshing and engrossing, with the element of fun beckoning you into its world filled with creativity and wonder, FFXIV feels like a whole different game this time around. I made a post about the problems with version 1.0 of FFXIV back in 2011 – The Journey Into Eorzea, this post will talk about some of those problems (quoting them from my post) and how the changes in A Realm Reborn have changed those issues for the better.
So I got Final Fantasy XIV recently and have been playing it quite a bit this last week. Firstly the intro animation is amazing, I watched it on youtube before, but seeing it in HD is so much better. Square Enix sure does know how make exhilarating animation sequences.
Together and against it, they walk forward struggling against their Fates to create a miracle and make their wishes come true
Final Fantasy XIII is a great game and even with the criticism it got for its linearity, I still love it and it has become one of my favourite games I’ve ever played – thanks to it I’ve become a Final Fantasy fan =). Now I admit the game was very linear, but I didn’t have a big problem with this. I had played Final Fantasy III, Final Fantasy VIII, and some of Final Fantasy X-2 before I played Final Fantasy XIII, but I can’t remember being engrossed in those games. I was more just playing those games rather than also following it, which did lessen the experience I felt while playing them. You could say I was “relatively new” to Final Fantasy because I never truly got into the whole “Fantasy” aspect of the franchise.
I didn’t really think much of a Final Fantasy game and I certainly wasn’t expecting much from Final Fantasy XIII (Final Fantasy games to me prior to playing FFXIII just seemed like games to spend a ton of time on – 100+ hours, and I wasn’t really enthusiastic about spending that much time on a game). I got Final Fantasy XIII and decided to play it on a whim, and how surprised I was when I realised how really caught up in the game I was. The amazing cinematic sequence that introduced the game and main characters and the start right in the middle of the action did seriously grip my attention and begin to catalyst my nonchalant desire to play this game.
