WTMG's Leo Faria: "All in all, I thought Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin was going to be the brand new punching bag of 2021 and 2022, but despite the stupid trailer and stupid dialogue, this demo was awesome! It controls pretty well, being hard but fair. It also actually manages to perfectly port the world of Final Fantasy to a tough and gory Souls-like environment. I initially believed this was going to be the Balan Wonderworld of 2022, but if this demo is any indication, Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin is now one of my most anticipated games for the next year. What a twist!"
