Type-0 Is The Darkest Final Fantasy Ever Made

DS: “I hate that Type-0 is forgotten among the Final Fantasy games. While not the strongest entry, its mature story makes it stand out from the others. And even though Final Fantasy now has three rated M games — including Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin and Final Fantasy XVI, — Type-0 will always have the crown of being the first, and arguably the darkest.”

i agree that it is indeed dark, but it has its issues.

and i feel like the ending is what makes it really a dark final fantasy game.

the rest is more or less war where teenagers fight.

This game was the epitome of the FF dark age pretty much, was hella boring and the gameplay was tedious. I'm glad SE got the series back on track

gold_drake369d ago

well, it was more of a spin off rly.
especially after they dropped the fabula nova crystalis stuff

I actually really love this game, the main problem however was that the entire story and personality of the characters, was in the lore that you need to dig very deep to find and external materials outside of the game, honestly it has my favorite lore in the franchise, I wish they had made the game more story focused, god it would have been a masterpiece


Final Fantasy Type-0 HD Review – Zero Regrets

Gary Green said: After finally getting the long-overdue platinum trophies for Final Fantasy VII, VIII, and XV, I wondered if I could manage another. Despite a few blunders, it’s a franchise worth showing off in your collection. I had to find another game with a realistically achievable platinum, which sadly rules out quite a few. Fortunately, I didn’t have far to look as I dusted off Final Fantasy Type-0 HD, which was, in fact, my very first PS4 game, and one that’s aging surprisingly well.

This Final Fantasy Type-0 HD Mod Runs The Game At 120 FPS

The PC port of Final Fantasy Type-0 HD had many problems, and now a new mod fixes them and lets you play at 120 FPS.

120fps is overrated and totally unnecessary for these types of games . 60fps is more than plenty

KrillinShine541d ago (Edited 541d ago )

That's subjective, I'll take 120fps if the hardware can handle it over 60fps if given the option. Nothing wrong with liking smoother visuals.

jznrpg541d ago (Edited 541d ago )

120fps will make most games suffer someway . If it doesn’t sure great 120fps but if it takes anything away from it I’d rather have 60fps . For online shooters I get it but for RPGs I’d rather have more detail and such and 60fps instead of losing some of that and 120fps .
I played DMC at 120fps and I couldn’t tell the difference myself besides that the graphics were worse .

KrillinShine541d ago

You're missing the point - to some people 120fps is more pleasing to the eye than sharper visuals, higher texture quality and/or AO. No harm in giving people the option for it, mod or not.

Also, you couldn't tell the difference between 60fps and 120fps? Are you sure you have a monitor that supports 120fps? It's a night and day difference to me.

I couldn’t get into this game. I probably should give it another try.

Kurisu541d ago

I quite enjoyed the game to be honest! Sure, the story wasn't amazing. But it was good to see FF try a new direction. Was nice having so many playable characters, but it's a shame that there is little to no charcater development for any of them.

CrimsonWing69541d ago

Ye, you're not alone. I really tired, but I couldn't. The only reason I even pushed myself to play it for a while was because I'm an FF fan, but it just didn't click. The intro FMV was epic though.

jznrpg541d ago

The way it loads so much I didn’t care for but it’s not a bad game . Story is weak and if they had a good story I would love it . But with a meh story it’s decent . I like most things Final Fantasy though so I could see how some wouldn’t care for it .

CrimsonWing69541d ago

Yea, I’m in the same boat where I can like most things Final Fantasy related. I’d like to fire it up again just to get the platinum at least.

Shinox541d ago

One of the worst overhyped FF games with garbage story , people made a mistake hyping this up

Kurisu541d ago

I'm still glad that I actually got to play it. When it released exclusively in Japan on PSP I didn't think I'd ever get the chance.

jznrpg541d ago

I enjoyed it but I see the point of the story being bleh

TheColbertinator541d ago

This was originally a mobile game in development so the lack of vision became apparent as the game released on the PSP first.

Kurisu540d ago

Agito XIII, back when the Fabula Nova Crystallis games was supposedly going to be a thing.
