    The game is accessible for new fans, yet deep enough for those who've play many Final Fantasy games too. World of Final Fantasy MAXIMA is a great entry into the series that should be experienced by all, as long as you can handle the obscene amount of cuteness contained within.

    World of Final Fantasy MAXIMA on Xbox One strikes a perfect balance for seasoned veterans and new players with a mix of old gameplay tropes and new. The graphics and genuinely laugh out loud moments will appeal to younger audiences, but older fans will also appreciate seeing deformed versions of classic Final Fantasy characters and monsters.

    World of final fantasy is one of a kind into FF Saga, its chibi art style and overall freshness makes it a very enjoyable game.

    As a vessel to transport fans of the series back through its many stories, World of Final Fantasy Maxima is an unqualified success. The game is filled with old friends to meet and side content to play through with them, but it's also completely accessible as an entry point into the series for new players thanks to a forgiving combat system and a story with great humor and characters. The combat can be a bit easy, and there's not a ton of side content to keep you busy, but these drawbacks are far outweighed by the special experience of playing through the story and getting invested in the world. If you come into this with eyes wide open regarding the combat, there's plenty to find and enjoy in this world.

    World of Final Fantasy Maxima is an adorable spin-off with an interesting approach, a fun gameplay and an entertaining plot. Long-time Final Fantasy fans may find in this game some mechanics they've missed in recent main releases.

    Entertaining journey into the slightly “different” Final Fantasy world Gryimore, filled with Pokémon’esque creature collecting as well as challenging active time battle fights.

    A fun distraction from the mainline Final Fantasy games, this is a game you’re going to want to digest in small pieces. World of Final Fantasy Maxima is so sickeningly cute and twee that it sometimes comes off as unbearable (thanks to the main characters) but when you get past that, there is a compelling and intelligent battle system waiting for you. And obviously, the new Xbox One additions are welcome, even if they're not particularly huge. If you’re a die-hard Final Fantasy fan and can put the time into this game, you’re going to get a lot out of it.

    World of Final Fantasy Maxima is technically sound and the quality you would expect from the final fantasy series and Square Enix Japan. WorldWorld of Final Fantasy Maxima is technically sound and the quality you would expect from the final fantasy series and Square Enix Japan. World of Final Fantasy is a solid game that’s entertaining and offers a lot of different things to do in game. Fans and followers of Final Fantasy series will enjoy the many references to past games but the game itself doesn’t rely on this alone. The story takes a while to get going or to get interesting and pull you in, however the fun and enjoyable parts of the game have nothing to do with the story. It’s ideal for anyone just looking for a fun game to play and long time fans of the Final Fantasy series, and fans of JRPGs. Reminds me of Pokemon Let's Go, with a complex battle and leveling system. Although I'm not a personal fan of the Pokemon series, I do give this a thumbs up for what it does have to offer. I'd definitely recommend you check it out, especially if you can grab it on sale.
