      A good remastered game

      Final Fantasy Type 0 HD is a remaster of a PSP Final Fantasy game that has never been released in the U.S. For the most part, much of the graphics have been updated to look more in-line with other PS4 games, but there are still many textures and character models that were not given care. The story of this game disappoints. Much of the dialogue is average or poor and many of Class Zero's characters aren't developed too well. It has potential with the theme of war, but ultimately the narrative feels to disjointed and incoherent. Too much jargon and terminologies are thrown at the person in the beginning that players won't know what is going on. Despite those flaws, the gameplay holds out well. Combat is real time and plays more like an action game with how fast paced it is. There are still many RPG elements with stats, equipment, etc. However, the game will become increasingly difficult if one does not pay attention to dodging and reacting to enemy attacks. Each of the playable characters have distinct playable styles and they're all viable to use. I should warn you that the camera system in this game is quite bad. Every time you turn the camera with the right analog stick (speed can't be varied), motion blur is introduced and it can make you experience motion sickness. When you're not fighting in missions, you're given time to roam at an academy to do side quests, listen to lectures (for exp), and shop around. Each event causes a timer to count down, which then leads to your next mission. It's a novel idea and adds importance to time instead of having characters run around doing fetch quests all day as if a war isn't going on. Special mention goes to the incredible soundtrack. It's worthy of a mainline Final Fantasy title. Overall, I can recommend this game if you find the combat system and gameplay fun (along with overlooking the horrid camera). Otherwise, the story and graphics do hold the game down a bit from greatness.

      not what I was expecting

      Graphics: The game is an old PSP remaster, so of course the graphics are how shall we say "outdated" especially for a next-gen console game. Let's just say it looks like a PS2 game. Story: Mildly interesting for the majority of the game and then extremely confusing near the end. I feel as if all the games under the "Fabula Nova Crystallis" banner were designed to be confusing. The game also has similar lore from XIII that Type 0 doesn't explain well, so if someone were to jump in straight to Type 0 they would most likely be confused. After you beat the game you can view extra cutscenes that fill in some of the blanks which is nice but weird (why couldn't these be in the game proper?) and there's apparently alternate endings when you beat the game a second and third time. Voice Acting: Horrendous. Although some characters are a lot better than others. I find it funny that a few of the secondary characters have better voice acting than some of the main cast. (Also the pronunciation of "Kurasame" has a wide spectrum from perfect to hilariously butchered.) Gameplay: Compared to Final Fantasy XIII (the last Final Fantasy I played) I think this one is much better. It plays similar to Final Fantasy X where you get ambushed periodically while you run around and Final Fantasy XII where you control the party leader, the AI controls the others, and you can switch leaders at any time while in battle. My main gripe is how the game doesn't exactly tell you how to use important abilities. For example, I was halfway through chapter 4 before I figured out how to heal my party with Cure and I STILL don't know how to charge up the Vermillion Bird spell. (Anyone else figure this out please leave a comment.) Conclusion: For all its faults, and there are many, I still enjoyed playing this game oddly enough. I enjoyed it enough to go after the platinum and I enjoyed it enough to continue with a New Game+. I feel as if I should be giving it a 2 out of 5 because some part of me feels it does not deserve a 4, but I honestly liked playing it. In my opinion, you can compare this to XII. If you enjoyed XII you'll enjoy Type 0.

      Mediocre game

      This isn't a Final Fantasy game, it's Dynasty Warriors with Final Fantasy shoved down its throat. This game is a PSP game HD remake, but the HD segments of the game are reserved to the cinematics while everything else looks like Playstation 2 graphics. It's story is one that is more akin to a History channel documentary, boring and showing no real elements of connection between the Final Fantasy elements in the story other than easy antagonists and event sparks, and much of the story that is original is terribly cliche and can be expected before the game mentions the plot points. The story of Final Fantasy Type-0 follows a class of genetically modified clone school students (yes, really, and no, it's not like Final Fantasy VIII), each with the strength of ten soldiers, and their personality dependent weapon. Each hold the ever original naming style of playing cards, but that's not a major point of dissapproval. Much of the combat style is Dynasty Warriors with more difficult to use combos, often you will find a favorite character to use in a fight, but either you will have a hard time actually using that character thanks to small quirks (such as slow attack speed, sweeping attack motions that don't hit enemies as often as it should, issues with hitting targets as a ranged character, etc.) or you'll be forced to level up other, less interesting characters to round out your group in case a character dies. To make matters worse, the camera is ungodly janky and sensitive to adjustment which makes moving about in and out of combat is terribly nauseating. Aside from the chocobo breeding, a throwback to the fun side quest of Final Fantasy 7, and the overland Suikoden 3-style war events, this game is difficult to enjoy for a mature fan of the classic Final Fantasy games. In closing, if it were not called Final Fantasy, it would be a great game. It can be fun after you forget the Final Fantasy name, even with the terrible PS2 era graphics and the awkward soundtrack, but sadly the combat mechanics leave much to be desired.

      Love the plot

      When we first got this game I was more excited about the Demo for FFXV since we have seen trailers and how wonderful it looks. But, instead I ended up trying out the actual game first to see what it was like. The plot is great so far and the cut scenes are rather lovely. I was surprised at how much violence was in it, but have seen worse so it intensifies the emotions as well as the plot. Another, the thing I love about the game is that there are lots of characters to choose from to fit everybody's taste in what they enjoy in a character. Whether it's a support, close-combat, long distance, etc. Normally, we like RPG games and have always like the FF franchise. However, the only reason this gets 4 stars is the camera control. I play with vertical inversion while fiancé plays normal. But, at first it was a bit tricky for me since there's no option for camera sensitivity. The screen blurs when you use the horizontal and vertical camera look at the same time or horizontal alone. It hurts our eyes for some reason. However, the in depth plot keeps you on trail and wanting more. So still would recommend to those especially with the Gamers Club Unlocked Membership. Other than that, we do like this game a lot and have been putting 2+ hours on it ever since we got it a few days ago. we pre-ordered it so it came with the FFXV demo which we do LOVE a lot. Can't wait for it to come out.

      Short but Good

      The game itself was really good. I didn't play the original PSP version so it's my first time play it. Before purchasing it, I did read a lot of reviews, most of the negative points were that the story lacks as the game progresses, which it does indeed. Some characters a very cliche and somewhat one dimensional. But overall it was a great game. The only downside I had was seeing how before this game even came out, there were a lot of trailers boasting its HD remake and praise of being 1080. But actually playing it, some of the scenery and graphics were as if they just upscaled it. But it does look indeed better than the PSP version. And the movie cut scene were great. I have to say, it's a really short game. If you only focus on the story and take a few hours leveling, you can complete the entire game with about 24 hours clocked in, maybe even less. I was able to finish the game, complete almost all Expert Trials, find over half of the collectibles, and Platinum out (100% trophies) in less than 35 hours clocked in. Took 5 consecutive day with about 5-7 hours of free time to finish. Even though the story is extremely short for a FF game, it's still fun and has replay value.

      A different 'Type' of Final Fantasy Game

      I'm always excited to get the latest Final Fantasy game, but this one I hesitated on buying. The back of the box gives little information about the game and its playstyle. I quickly learned that "Type 0" means that it is a different type of FF game. Meaning the playstyle of this game is much different from any previous FF titles. There is no ATB gauge, no turn-based battles, and frankly nothing that feels like a FF game at all. Instead, what we have here is a real-time, third-person, action game that utilizes the lore and themes of other FF titles. The cinematics are beautiful, as you would expect, but the gameplay sections are most definitely lacking in graphics quality, especially for a PS4 title. While I expected more from this game (especially being a SquareEnix title), I wouldn't rule it out for gamers who prefer more action-oriented gameplay. My best suggestion: rent it first to see if the game suits you. The gameplay reveals itself pretty quickly, after some lengthy cinematics. I do recommend playing with the tutorial, as that will be helpful in determining whether this 'type' of game is for you.

      A Mature Final Fantasy

      This is a game many have been waiting for a long time to come to the U.S. It was originally a game for the PSP handheld console, but the game has now been graphically updated for the PS4. While Type-0 looks great, you can definitely see its PSP origins. As a plus, Type-0 is actually a relatively more mature Final Fantasy game. And for those who loved the young military style of FF8, it's back in Type-0. There's an even larger cast of characters to play as, though all are not as fleshed out as FF8's. Type-0 is also an Action rpg, which differs greatly from FF8's slower, stand in a line, turned based combat. Some found that Type-0 had camera issues when first released, actually causing people to have motion sickness. This issue has been addressed with a recent patch however. Type-0 also came with a playable demo of the up-coming FF15, which was a lot of fun especially after the last patch for the demo. The graphics, combat, and character interaction for FF15 is top notch. Though the demo was only supposed to be available for the first run of Type-0, it may still be available if you order Type-0 soon.

      Best FF since IX

      Although I found some enjoyment from all of the main Final Fantasy games, it has been awhile since one has captured at least some of what made the PS1 era FF games great. I was initially concerned slightly on the time management aspect of the game because I didn't care for it in Lightning Returns however I find it to work much better in this game. As for combat, it reminds me a lot of FF XII but real time instead of turn based. Building up multiple characters is also fun and allows you to play to each of their strengths as you progress through the game. As for the negatives, the camera is the worst thing I can say about the game. Occasionally it can get in the way and make it very frustrating when you're fighting the boss at the end of the chapter. Being a PSP game originally the graphics are obviously not up to PS4 standards but I prefer gameplay over graphics anyway. Overall I'd recommend it if you're into JRPGs. It has some issues but as a whole it's been a great addition to the FF series and the most fun I've had with one since FF IX came out.
