Well... That looks cheap and dated...

I blame it on the fact that, this man doesn't want to focus on graphics, because that was one of it's biggest downfalls back when this game was first release under different leadership. That doesn't really excuse the fact that it's been 5 years now, since it's re-release and is in need of a face lift once the ps5 is released.

MMORPGs are usually like this though, you rarely see games in the genre pushing graphical boundaries, it allows them to be played a wider range of systems plus probably helps when designing things like raids. Black Desert Online is one of the few exceptions and the last time I played that, the draw distance in that game was so bad it literally effected your gameplay experience and that's on a high end system. FF14 certainly does seem a little crude by modern standards but it has it's charm and more than does the job.

Wow I played this game in 2014 and thought it looked good enough but it is looking a little dated.

Love it, love it, love it. (Did I say I love it?) :)

Sophy is wonderful. I hope they can just turn it on for all races though.

This is somehow the game I have put the most time into on my ps5 so far. It also convinced me to add a psvr2 and wheel, which I am both happy I have and angry I bought at the same time lol

outsider162413h ago

Same here. Just finished a race a few mins ago and came here lol. I came 6th and even then such a fantastic race. Except for 1 or 2 most racers were really clean and respectful.
Planning to get the wheel (sold it to a friend) again along with psvr2.

Final Fantasy Tactics director says there's currently "no plans" to remaster the RPG

Earlier this week, Yasumi Matsuno - writer and director of Final Fantasy Tactics - replied to a fan on Twitter and cleared up those remaster rumors. When asked if the developer could add a progression system to the game's Ultima spell in any potential remasters, Matsuno replied: "Currently, there are no plans for remastering," before asking the fan (and others) to direct any requests to Square Enix instead of them.

Would love to see a full-on remake of Tactics some day. Superb game. I still remember my second or third playthrough, finding out that a certain "other" Final Fantasy character could be recruited... Kind of blew my mind haha. (Even though they started at level 1 unfortunately.)

Yea, I just saw Matsuno's second response:

"I'm very sorry.
That's all can say as my position right now.
I'll leave it to you whether you believe it or not.
Thank you."

If SquareEnix completely remakes the game, he isn't lying at all. It won't be a remaster.

I believe Final Fantasy Tactics is special enough that they would put in the extra effort for a remake!

Michiel19891d 2h ago

it wouldn't ship enough compared to other titles they can remaster I imagine. It definitely deserves a remake, but I think it's low on their list. If you want a similar game, you could try out Triangle Strategy (it's on steam now as well).
