So I have had a chance to play a little bit of Final Fantasy Type-0, but I already can form an opinion of some things.
First off, it has one of the most overwhelming opening scenes I have ever watched. Final Fantasy games are known for their heartwrenching, gut punching drama. Type-0’s opening almost f***ed me up. No joke. I should start by saying it is the first FF game that I remember having blood in. And there is A LOT. Not only that, but right off the bat, it is pretty dark and brutal. I almost couldn’t watch some of the scenes just because of how brutal they were.
I can already tell you that this will not be like any Final Fantasy game you have played before. Besides the storyline, the battle system is much more dynamic and interactive. It takes some getty used to, but I honestly think it’s one of the best (along with FFXII). The graphics, as always, are superb, not to mention the voiceacting (I am just saying this because I could listen to the moogles talk all day!)
Although I don’t know what FF’s obsession with timeframes and time limits lately. I know they have always had some role in FF puzzels, but lately, I feel like they do too much with them (think Lightning Returns). If I have to deal with timelimits the entire game, I refuse to play it.
Currently, I am not sure I am emotionally stable enough to pay Type-0. It’s just so intense and I am not even an hour in! I am definitely invested, but currently I need something more playful and lighthearted.
Look forward to future updates!
Have you played Type-0 yet? How did it compare to your previous expereinces with Final Fantasy
