The story near the end is so tone deaf that I couldn't help but laugh at how silly it was.

This xpac aint no 8/10

Its so safe, the world zones have gotten worse with mob placement. Just random mobs scattered randomly. They ant make an organic world, still 90s mmo.

They openly admitted to not playing the monk class rework.

The story really didnt need maps 5,6. When that anime song started playingni couldnt stop laughing due to cringe considering what the task was.

They need a new team, they need yoshi to go. Hes got one formula and has kept the xpac in chains to it.

This has to be a paid review.

The xpac didnt experiment with anything. Its the safest copy paste "copy a existing ff game story" ever.

The main character isnt you. Its some naive anime love, peace family cat girl.

She is never challenged on her convictions, gets kidnapped by bandits twice yet over powers our warrior of light.

The msq is also one of the most laziest ones ever. Instead of playing minigames we watch it. Every zone plays the same. I think l killed like 30 mobs total the whole story

Then theres gameplay...they openly admitted to not even playing the monk rework before release.

How you give this a 9?

After the praise FF16 got and how shallow it ended up being, everything is possible.. especially with the « media » nowadays

Yeah outside the primal fights the story had me questioning the gane more and more. Repeating lines like "we doing the right thing. Slavery bad" but dont....question why caster ppl dont just fight back? A whole build up to odin...his country is different coloured mobs

You take out entire nations power sources and way of life; theyre fine with it. Ah well!

They cant make old women? Their mother eternal?

Dont get me started on phoenix having a hard on for martyrdom. Absorbs....god for some reason. Doesnt say anything.

Oh and the last boss...really. we're going with that story? Destroy god?
