Well, I honestly can't seem to understand how the game works with such limited footage, but I think it looks close to Kingdom Hearts, and I also receive vibes from Xenoblade, because of the really huge world and the similarity in environments. It could be a very awesome game if well done. I'm very excited for it.
I agree. Like I say in the article, I don't necessarily dislike the direction they are going in but right now it doesn't look that impressive to me and I'm worried that it's going to feel like a game that started development in 2006. I hope I'm wrong and it winds up being fantastic.
I don't know much about the gameplay, I agree with most people, it looks a lot like Kingdom Hearts. I'm more into the story and characters, that's what makes Final Fantasy games for me, FF13 had decent gameplay but I didn't care about the story or characters. From this trailer, it gave me the impression, it has more to do with a romance cause the main guy seems to be on a trip to get to some girl, which they show, and then we see him starring at the moon. I know it's just a trailer but these things look like a good sign that the story will be romantic and intriguing like the good Final Fantasy games, FF7 with Cloud and Aerith, and why her death was so sad. FFX, Tidus and Yuna, and how tragic it was that Yuna's Journey to stop sin for 10 years would also mean her sacrifice. This is really what makes Final Fantasy games for me, even more than the combat.
"I'm worried that it's going to feel like a game that started development in 2006" wtf? how exactly is that a problem? fyi full production only began in 2011 and then it had to be ported to PS4 at some point.
Really. This is the best looking game Square has had in years. No we can't say how the final product will be, but this trailer was fantastic.
Final Fantasy XV looks Great, even with its dark tone, it has a bright look of the future. Greatness is Here.
I get what the author is trying to say, it does look a little clunky and slow, but for all we know those are like heavy attacks. regardless hopefully they tighten all that stuff up and make a great game. Im stoked
This is my first time seeing this since I missed TGS love -_- But wow SE met my expectations on this one. The only thing I can nit pick about is the car looks meh and the foliage looks average. It's supposed to be "clunky" because it's supposed to be open world. This a major improvement from FFXIII. This is more than Night and Day improvement actually. Makes FFXIII look like a PS2 game.
You, and others on this site, do know that the whole point of Nomura's Final Fantasy was that it was set to be a ARPG right? Final Fantasy Versus XII - The "versus" meant a change in direction. it was meant to be different from the other FFs, Nomura's version. I believe he stated he wanted to do something a little darker and different, with a unique combat engine. As for the gameplay, maybe it's just me, but I didn't think it looked "stiff." The animations seemed unique and depending on the movement of player and enemies around him they seemed fairly dynamic.
It could be a very awesome game if done well, and it will be very difficult to do well. There is finally hope for Final Fantasy, at least. It's the first FF game in years that seems to have some personality. Jesus christ I just realised we spent the longest gen ever with just FF13 and its sequels/spinoffs. That's crazy
The only thing I'm worried about is dying from the anticipation before the game comes out. Haha in all seriousness FFVII and the Kingdom Hearts series are some of my favorite games so Im not worried at all about FFXV.
Anything is better than the FF XIII combat system.
XIII combat wasnt the problem , the story and its linearity was the problem .
i think the point of this article was to point out the slow pace the action feels like. i cant be sure but the older videos seem to have a faster pace action, but that could be the editing techniqques tat made it seem faster. well, i am biased so im getting this no matter what.
I think people in general like to be negative about things, we've grown entitled to things that we really shouldn't. We need to be more optimistic, otherwise nothing will please us, of course we have to be cautiously optimistic, staying away from being bound by either irrational hate or blind fanboyism.
True. I don't like 13 and never will, but that one looks interesting. I have seen people making jokes because there is a car. 7 and 8 had cars and from the trailer frankly it looks like they might go more back to the roots. I'm certainly interested to see more.
For those who do not know, FFXV (Originally VS XIII) Was intended to be made using the kingdom hearts style of gameplay mechanics. This was made clear many years ago.
Very simple explanation This is earlier 'weaker' noctis than the two trailers last year. Nomura said it'd speed up later. Also, in the gameplay trailer last year Noctis used firaga and teleported every other second with general combos. @ Article
I am a fan and I'm not worried. I am starting to had gaming news. They are so negative about everything. I don't worry about video games, I play video games. Can we stop over dramatizing everything. Game is coming and that is great.
It's clickbait. If there was an article praising FF15, you probably wouldn't think of clicking on it.
Do people just call anything they don't like clickbait around here?
Did you used to had gaming news? Do you still had gaming news today? I enjoy gaming news, and to be honest with you, I'm acting like a douche. It's really fascinating to hear what others think about the games that I love and "had"--I mean hate. Personally, I use reviews to influence my desirability towards how much interest I have in a game. GTAV got great reviews and I will eventually play it, but it's not on the top of my list of games to play. I enjoy hearing people complain about what they don't like about video games... Can I tell you a secret? There is nothing wrong with that. Why the f_ck are you complaining about peoples comments about a game review? No worries buddy. Keep writing and listening. Haders gonna had.
every game is awful to the "real gamers" I guess...
WHAT IS WRONG WITH IT? >:( GAMERS are always complaining about everything game looks insanely good jeez
what is the problem here? everyone is suddenly saying "GAEMS R GOIN TO HELL ERMEHGERED"
The game will probably destroy the series.
Eeee, so many disagrees and that is the only response we get. How disappointing and stuff.
The best it can do in our opinion is to put it on life support. Especially if they don't follow it up with another good or great game.
The ratio of agrees:disagrees says enough.
Looks like a bunch of trannys going on a road trip.
i guess you havent played any JRPG before and you dont know nothing about japan
Nintendo fans aren't all like this. I'm a Nintendo fan and I don't spew vile across other systems. I will be playing Xblade too, so calm down.
uh... wait, who said anything about Nintendo?
@Timesplitter14 Just going through the comment history...
This guy is Nintendo a fanboy, bro, thank you for proving my point. I'm bubbling you up, puhuhuhuhuhu.
I would say FFXV looks very Shōnen to me, or Guhan shōnen with all those young guys in the trailer cruising for trouble. Noctis looks like Sasuke from naruto. ever since Advent children they've always kept the style.
Lol this made me Laugh out loud at 5 am haha.
The game looks holy, I thought Xenoblade X looked good, but this will blow that out of the water.
It already has delivered graphically. And it seems to want to push Final Fantasy like never before gameplay-wise. Square Enix needs something like that.
I seriously doubt the combat in XV will be nearly as good as Xenoblade X. Naturally though it does look better.
Holy crap this and type-0 are at the top of the Amazon movers and shakers list :O Glad I got my pre order in in time.
Not worried. Not concerned. Excited.
It's a FF spin-off with a name change, clunky combat, and characters that look like they were ripped from some JPOP boyband. This looks even worse than FF13. Considering how slow this game looks they should just call it Final Fantasy 15 frames per second.
The only thing I'm worried about is my wallet after I buy the crazy collector's edition of this game.
As long as it's better than 13
Atleast it seems it's doing the action rpg right. I love that the enemies actually react to impact when you hit them, rather than just walking around regularly as you're doing super moves to them. It seems like it can end up being very good. I never liked the look of the characters though, dressed in all black like some emo kids. I'm loving the visuals, seemingly huge open-world and well done real-time combat so far though. I'd like to see how far the engine could go visually if it was a PS4 exclusive though, but whatever.
I'm not worried for graphics. It looks awesome. But i'm a bit cautious for gameplay. The combat looks good but it a bit slower from the previous trailer. Also, i still don't know why they're not showing interaction with NPC, towns, or mini games. A couple things that i hated from FF XIII are in towns we didn't interact with NPC and it lacks mini games. I hope SE release more info about that.
The trailer was just weird, I've never played the previous games so I had no idea wtf was going on. What should I play to understand these giant monsters in a world with normal cars and stuff? haha
Considering it's Japanese and Final Fantasy game, the best way to make sense of it, honestly, is to try LSD whilst hanging upside down over a chasm filled with 58 staples all coloured with love.
complaining for the sake of it, elements of past final fantasy but it's an action rpg so it's not good enough right? I'm not going to say it is an amazing game cause i havent played it, but you are condemning it with out even playing it calling it not a real final fantasy game. What really makes it a real final fantasy game? Cause it sure isnt turn based combat.
Seems like their usual push for graphics, while the rest is average. This is going to be the deathblow for Final Fantasy, but the fanatics will gobble this up like always. You could use another name for this game, and it wouldn't even make a difference. I can definitely see Tales of ____ being the better game, if this is the route Squeenix is going for.
The game will not be turn-based. Deal with it.
This game doesn't look right. Driving around a sports car just takes away the magic for me.
The only thing I'm worried about is if my PS4 version will be gimped because of the XBlown. Probably "slightly" at the least!
So let me get this straight: 4 Cool-Kids-Club Asian Teenagers, dressed in all-black high-fashion threads, are driving an all-black, suped-up version of the Cadillac Ciel Concept through what seems to be an open world envoronment, fighting soldiers and dragons/dinosaurs/monsters with mystical weapons and god-like melee fighting skills and tag-team moves. Oh yeah, the graphics ain't too shabby, either. Yep. Sounds like something to worry about to me... :-/
Kinda sounds/looks like GTA:FFXV
Loved the trailer, need the game. Been playing since the beginning and I'm not going anywhere.
Gaming media is too negative.
It looks like the playstyle might be semi turn based now. I think it looks good so far. Now I could be wrong, but I think it has a lot of potential. But I agree, if this one is as good as FF13, then the series is dead.
Couldn't be worse than FF13
It's just a bunch of Bros going for a car ride. What could possibly go wrong?
the biggest thing to get worried about is at the end when it says "in developement",
Hearing too many people saying how good the game looks who seem to have forgotten how the first FF13 was the best looking, yet the most empty. With the sequels turning even more vapid.
Yeah, the trailer tells us very little about what to expect beyond the surface. Unless you're a fan of the direction SE has taken Final Fantasy thus far, I see no reason to give them the benefit of the doubt at this point.
I am extremely hyped for this game and Its combat looks great, I doubt it will be heavily scripted as its an Action RPG. Monster Hunter Freedom Unite has great combat...
You know, Final Fantasy XIII gets a lot of crap, yet it took some pretty big risks and ended up with what many consider the best battle system in the entire franchise. To me, that makes the gameplay [mostly] great, linearity withstanding. I actually liked XIII, but a lot of the hate comes from the stagnated Final Fantasy VII gamers who can't give up on a remake or that game. Seriously, let it go. The story was great, but XIII kicks its butt gameplay-wise. The hate isn't warranted in my opinion. That all being said, my concerns for Final Fantasy XV are that it's not going to have its own identity. Again, XIII gets so much hate and yet it's so distinct with impressive gameplay. XV as of now *looks* like a Kingdom Hearts/Platinum game hybrid. I'm not exactly saying that's bad because I love Kingdom Hearts (and Platinum's titles and Final Fantasy). I also like peanut butter and jelly, but I don't keep them in a jar together because that forces me to experience both every time I want to eat it.
"Best battle system in the entire franchise " Stoped reading there
Cool beans. It's sad that you left out the part where I explicitly state before that very line you quoted that "many" consider it the best. I didn't say everyone. I didn't even say most. MANY. That is a fact. Tell me, what exactly makes XIIIs battle system inferior to the others? I thought Square did well in making a unique and awesome combat system. But if you think XVs painfully safe real time system that only seems next gen in visuals so far, have fun with that. The Final Fantasy nostalgia kids are honestly among the worst. Fortunately for you, XIII is finished. You and the rest of the jokers can feel free to stealthily disagree without any substantial argument now.
TGS2014 trailer: 4 metrosexual guy traveling around the world with super sport car and whining... its none sense worst ffvs13,ff15 trailer with an "okay" music japan fangirls now screaming yaaaay. WHERE is the OLD VS13 FF DARK,tragic theme!?
