Horrible

Worst Final Fantasy since the beginning!!!

I have played every FF game since the original and this is by far the worst in the series. The game is nothing more than a few side missions and a story that seemed hastily pieced together. I didn't even finish playing the game before I sent it back. If you are looking for a long in depth FF game steer clear of this one.

An embarrassing representation of what the Final Fantasy franchise once was. Disgraceful.

Not to belabor the point but the Timer system in this game is terrible. The one thing you want to do is explore the world but you simply cannot waste a single moment.

Second why oh why has every "RPG" morphed into a button mashing clone of Kronos/God of War.

The dialogue is terrible, the conversations between Hope and Lightning are unbearable.

Side quests are the only way to level up, and inexplicably, there is a tree that grows as you save souls and somehow expands time. Save the monotonous repetitive side quests and just buy some fertilizer already.

If you are looking for Kronos go for it. If you are looking for a FF game this is not it.
