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.

EdMcGlone1552d ago

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.

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.

WombBat1551d ago

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

mikeslemonade1551d ago

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

hulk_bash19871552d ago

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.

OrangePowerz1552d ago

Anything is better than the FF XIII combat system.

DarkOcelet1551d ago

XIII combat wasnt the problem , the story and its linearity was the problem .

hkgamer1552d ago

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.

killacal131552d ago

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.

OrangePowerz1552d ago

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.

King-u-mad1552d ago

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.

Irishguy951551d 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.

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.

Eamon1552d ago

It's clickbait. If there was an article praising FF15, you probably wouldn't think of clicking on it.

jambola1551d ago

Do people just call anything they don't like clickbait around here?

drumjod71551d ago

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.

ps4lifesucka1552d ago

every game is awful to the "real gamers" I guess...

CervantesPR1552d ago

WHAT IS WRONG WITH IT? >:( GAMERS are always complaining about everything game looks insanely good jeez
