Love the game, but can't help but feel that the time limit, is a necessary evil, it adds much depth to the story, yet hugely impacts the fun of exploration, especially since the game has some of the best expolrable areas since FF12, also difficulty spikes can be quite insane, and no idea why the leveling up has been limited to side quests only. Overall it's a great game, which surprisingly successfully incorporates many new ideas, but holds them back by implementing unnecessary changes, still, would defo recommend it for anyone interested.

The games its self is great but the story and characters lack depth.

I don't really get the complaints about the time limit. Finished every main quest and near about half of the sidequests available on Day 7. Trust me, abusing chronostasis would make time your ally.

I agree,it's basically know how to manipulate time & you can play as long as you want.

@goldwynccq haha, true, chronostasis is your best friend, the time limit overall is not an issue man, but the fact that you to limit the exploration, and quests to a day, can be quite frustrating, also you got any tips for beating the boss for the Wildlands first quest, he is giving me a hard time, had to teleport back to finish all other main quests, now only he remains. Also, does the game count down to zero days, or 1 day is the last one, cheers.

Guarding at the right time is essential since Caius have a lot of damaging physical and magical attacks at his disposal. Also it would really help if you wait until Day 8 to obtain the Army of One ability. Retried the boss battle in the ark and found out that it drastically decreases the battle time. Its one of the most useful abilities in the entire game and is very effective even against powerful bosses.

The countdown reaches zero once you reach the final day and with enough effort, you can even unlock an extra day just before the finale by doing at least 40 sidequests.
