After the crystal is stolen by an invading nation, Niflheim, a global conflict ensues with all other nations wishing to gain it for themselves. Alongside the main protagonist, Noctis is joined by a military tactician Ignis Scienta, who can deftly handle a katana in battle, a melee fighter named Gladiolus Amicitia, gun-wielding Prompto Argentum, and head of the Royal Family Guards Cor Leonis. There's one other character that appears to get close with Noctis, even if her connection with him is still unknown. Her name is Stella Nox Fleuret, she seems to be strong and fight well with her rapier. Against this backdrop of a world at war, Noctis Lucis Caelum and his closest friends embark on an epic journey to try and get the crystal back. Expand

    Final Fantasy XV may not feel like an older game from the franchise, but that doesn't mean it's bad. I grew up with the older Final Fantasy game and while XV is different, that doesn't make it a bad game in the franchise. I enjoyed my time spent in game and look forward to doing more.

    This version of FFXV does deliver a much more complete experience and fixes many of the issues present in the original. It was a great adventure when it came out, and now it's better than ever.

    Even with its faults, from the weird two-halves of the story to the often poorly designed and uninteresting side-quests, Final Fantasy XV feels like a triumph. Discovering a new location or seeing a giant monster for the first time, Final Fantasy XV constantly surprises. And thanks to its likeable cast of heroes, provides as memorable an animated adventure of a boy band in a world filled with monsters could possibly be.

    All in all, Final Fantasy XV Windows Edition is the best console-to-pc port that Square Enix has produced to date. On top of that, the Royal Edition is the best version of Final Fantasy XV – so far, and even if only just. The route taken to get here has been a bumpy one, needlessly long with and perhaps without the most efficient direction, but the journey here has left us at a better place than we were at starting out.

    Final Fantasy XV’s beautiful graphics and exciting fights unfortunately come with a confusing story, irritating characters, long and unnecessary cutscenes, and optimization issues.

Compared to the console counterparts, especially XBOX ONE, this game looks lush and fluid and actually loads fast. It's understandable that people have the issues they have with the game, but the developers have been honest and upfront with improvements and I admire that. Maybe, FFXV isn't perfect, but if you are going to play this game this is the version to go with! Expand

    Se siente mucho el como la historia tiene ciertas lagunas, como hay villanos que al final terminan en nada, como hay personajes secundariosSe siente mucho el como la historia tiene ciertas lagunas, como hay villanos que al final terminan en nada, como hay personajes secundarios que fueron puesto con calzador y para justificar alguna misión no muy elavorada, como la jugabilidad no está afinada en ciertos puntos,como los mapas fueron planeados para mucho más y luego recortados. Pero que importa; la historia es buena, emotiva y en ciertos momentos muy épica y espectacular; el villano principal es el carisma en persona y tiene un trasfondo muy interesante; aunque al principio pareciera lo opuesto son los 3 amigos quienes hacen la mayor parte de la aventura y si tienen un problema es que te interesa saber más y más sobre ellos que el juego aporta pero a medias; las misiones secundarias repiten mucho pero suelen llevarte a cosas interesantes del mundo; la jugabilidad es muy entretenida, frennetica y con una profundidad decente; el mapa es hermoso y enorme, tecnicamente rinde bastante bien para lo que se ve el juego, en algunas ocasiones casi fotorrealista.
    FFXV es el más raro de la saga pero recomendado para todos, puede tanto gustar mucho como no gustar, pero lo único seguro es que hay que jugarlo.

    Ich weiß nicht ob ich zufrieden sein soll oder nicht . ich hab mich jahrelang auf das Spiel gefreut ... und ja es ist toll aber es ist ebenIch weiß nicht ob ich zufrieden sein soll oder nicht . ich hab mich jahrelang auf das Spiel gefreut ... und ja es ist toll aber es ist eben nicht der Meilenstein der FF7 oder 8 damals war.

    In Summe überwiegt die Enttäuschung weil das Game so lange in der Entwicklung war ... gott sei dank hab ich die Windows Edition gespielt die enthielt schon alle Verbesserung .. die Basis Version von FF 15 wäre wirklich noch wesentlich schlechter zu bewerten.

    Die Story ist gut .. aber kein FF 7 ... und für meinen Geschmack ist sie auch viel zu kurz.... dafür haben sie 99999999999999999 Nebenquests eingefügt.. wie wäre es gewesen nur halb soviele Nebenquests einzufügen aber dafür ne längere Mainquest .. die haben sogar nen 90 min CGI Film gedreht und man hätte sicher noch viel mehr machen können in der mainquest ... sowas kann ich nicht verstehen.

    Kampfsystem ist anfangs komisch .. fängt aber nach ner Zeit an zu gefallen. Magie fand ich immer komisch mit dem " Aufsagen " aus den Steinen. Aber ein gelungenerer Teil.

    Mit der Welt bin ich auch nicht so arm geworden .. in den alten FF Serien war man es gewohnt nur einen kleinen Teil der Welt erkunden zu können und nach und nach wurde man immer wieder weitergelassen .. hier kann man fast von Anfang an die komplette Welt erkunden ...

    Es gibt viele interessanten Charaktere .. die Charaktergruppe hat für mich aber zuviel von einer Boyband ... ich mag sie alle aber zu final fantasy passst so was nicht .. keine tiefen Geheimnisse eines Charakters das herausgefunden werden will .. etc

    wenn ihr es noch nicht gespielt habt dann wartet bis alle dlc rauskommen. 2018 sollen noch 4 kommen und wenn dann wirklich die complete edition gibt dann schlagt zu

I understand thatThe expansive world is nice, the story is alright, the graphics are awesome, but the combat really killed the game. I understand that transitioning from a more menu style system to action system is tough, but it is just so bad I really can't overlook it. You can actually beat the entire game by stocking up on healing items before every "boss" fight and mashing the attack button/just healing any time you go down. This kind of took out alot of the fun since there was basically no challenge, I still finished the main story, but that lack of excitement when fighting an enemy left little reason to continue playing afterwards Expand
