Final Fantasy XVI: Expert Review
Final Fantasy XVI is bombastic, indulgent, and extreme, breaking far beyond the limits of what I thought an action-oriented Final Fantasy could pull off. It represents a pivotal shift for the series, ditching any semblance of turn-based move selection, active-time battles, or anything else in its history in favor of a fast-paced, extravagant, combo-heavy combat system that continued to grow more robust throughout my 60-plus hour journey.
General Appreciation

PROS
  • Thrilling action combat
  • A strong story elevated by incredible voice work
  • A complete, polished, fully self-assured product
CONS
  • RPG systems so weak you wonder why they’re there
  • Poor pacing, largely as a result of oodles of padding and busywork
  • While the characters are fantastic, the world itself is not that memorable

Product Description

Description

The sun is setting upon the land of Valisthea. For centuries, people have flocked to her Mothercrystals to partake of their blessing—the abundant aether that fuels the magicks they rely upon in their everyday lives. But as the aether begins to fade and the lifeless deadlands spread ever further, so too does the struggle over the final flickers of the Mothers’ light grow ever more fierce. Bloody battle rages across the realm, rival nations sending their ultimate weapons against each other: the Dominants. 

Men and women within whom sleep the world-shattering power of an Eikon. There are few in Valisthea whose lives have not been touched by this war for the crystals’ blessing, and Clive Rosfield, firstborn son of the Archduke of Rosaria, is no exception. Unlike most, however, the vicissitudes of fate are to reveal to him the dark truth that lies at the heart of his world, and lead him on a mission to destroy those selfsame Mothercrystals the rest of the realm hold sacred. The legacy of the crystals has shaped mankind’s destiny for long enough.

    As a dedicated Final Fantasy fan, I was eagerly awaiting the arrival of Final Fantasy 16 on PlayStation 5. Although I’ve only played it for about 30 minutes, I’m already captivated by this latest installment. The game evokes a sense of nostalgia reminiscent of the underrated Final Fantasy 13, offering a similar gameplay experience and storytelling style.One of the standout features is the exceptional graphics, brought to life by the power of the PlayStation 5. The level of detail and stunning visuals truly immerse you in the fantastical world of Final Fantasy 16. From the intricately designed characters to the breathtaking environments, the game is a visual feast.
