    The next step in Final Fantasy?

    I've only put in about ten hours into this game, and I find it a lot of fun. The graphics are amazing, the fights are smooth-ish (still have a hard time blocking and dodging), the American voice acting is...okay (I prefer the Japanese voice acting, but it's hard to play and read at the same time), and the new systems are actually easy to understand and enjoy. I can understand why this game continues to get the love that it does from Square Enix. The evolution of combat, the cool way of traveling the map in a very nice car, and just the overall layout of the game may get some getting used to, but it's a good time. I Really enjoy this game, and if you're like me, and waited to play this, I think now's a good time to pick it up and try it.

    I get a little salty talking about this, but video games that have been coming out during this ps4/xbox1 Era have been following a pattern of launching with "day one editions" etc etc with crap bonuses like dlc that are simply skins for the characters and such. You pay 60 bucks and then end up paying a lot more for additional dlc for side quests and whatnot. Well, if you wait long enough, they also release the game again with all the dlc bundled in for a fraction of the cost. This is one of those titles -- if you are buying ff15, this royal edition is the one to get. Cheers.

    Absurdly Visually Beautiful

    Final Fantasy has always done a great job in providing a new combat system in their next title. In XV uses real time combat in an open world, and is visually stunning. Even though future 2019 DLCs that were planned were canceled/delayed due to the game director quitting. This game is still worth it. While it includes the DLCs (since it's similar to a GOTY edition) It doesn't have the movie that comes with the Deluxe Edition. I recommended to have watched KINGSGLAIVE movie before embarking on Final Fantasy XV, as it is a prequel to events of the game.

    Fun but Repetitive

    FFXV is a really fun game for newcomers and veterans of the Final Fantasy franchise alike. The graphics are gorgeous and the combat is very fluid. The game does feel a bit rushed at times, as most of the side-quests are half-baked and feel like the exact same countless ones that you had already accomplished. This is a game where you may want to skip doing all the side-quests (saving yourself hours of repetitive tasks) and focus on the main story. Even though you will be skipping a lot of the content, the game is definitely still worth it with how fun the combat is and how enchanting the story becomes.

    It's a good game that leaves much to desire

    Overall Final Fantasy XV is a good game. It leaves much to be desired though. The original released left many people with disappointment, and a desire for more, more in depth elaborate story and abilities. With recent releases of DLC, the Royal Edition is the way to go as it fills many gaps that many have left prior to DLC release once they finished their original play through. If your new to the game, definitely pick up the Royal Edition and not the Standard edition.

    First of all I’m a big fan of the series however.. I really did have big expectations for this game but on day one of the game it had severe issues with bugs and loading times. However of cours with all games updates came to patch these up buy this edition for all the season content. Also please note that alll the dlc that was planned for 2019 has been canceled and only the episode of Ardyn is going to be released. Graphics are spot on though.

    For the price, a bargain

    The amount of content in this game is insane. Now, it would have been great to have all of this in the original release, but I got this for $16 with GCU, and that is a deal that cannot be beat for how much gameplay there is. On top of that, the game looks beautiful. It plays fairly differently from previous FF games, I would compare it to Kingdom Hearts fighting style. It's definitely a must-have for RPG fans.

    This is the ultimate edition. It contains all the DLC and the multiplayer. I got this because I am a bit of a collector and physical media is important to me. If you bought the Day One version and purchased the DLC already, you may want to pass this up unless you are interested in having everything on one disc. I'm glad this came out, but I really wish this was what was released day one.

    My Favorite Video Game

    This game is beautiful, but flawed. I think that's what makes it one of my favorite video games ever. You get attached to Noct and his friends so strongly, and the game can seriously hit you right in the feels. I would definitely buy the Royal Edition, as it includes a ton of DLC that really help tie the story together and give a lot of backstory to characters. It is definitely worth the money.

    Has the season pass and extra Royal dungeon

    A lot of the combat is simplified but there is enough depth to make this worth a play through. Much improved over the LIGHTNING trilogy. Also one of the best looking games on PS4 and XBOX one. This is worth having in your collection. If you get it new it comes with the season pass and an extra exclusive dungeon. This is the version to get as the DLC codes are included in the game case.

    This game was recommended for me after I played the Witcher 3. It's a really great rpg and my first time playing a final fantasy game. It's absolutely great and I haven't been able to put it down since I started. I give it 4.5 stars because it has some bad glitches at times which is annoying considering this game has apparently been in development for 10 years.

    A Perfect Way to Get All FFXV Has to Offer!

    A wonderful way for folks to dive into Final Fantasy XV and get all of the DLC content from the Season Pass and some special bonuses! The only problem is all of the extra content is on a printed DLC voucher, so you're in for some substantial bandwidth requirements. The only thing on the disc is basically the vanilla release, which means don't buy this game used.

    If you haven'y played the original XV, spend the slight extra to get this version. If you already have the previous and don't have a season pass, this is worth it! The content easily extends game play time and replay-ability for some people. It may even warrant a 3rd play through if you want to experience everything through 1st person.

    I didn’t know what to expect with this game. I hadn’t played a FF game in a while. It took a bit for the story to get my attention but then I really found myself loving the characters. I am only about 20 hours in but I see that there are hours and hours of content. One of my favorite aspects is the combat system.

    This is my first final Fantasy since final Fantasy VII and I was worried about getting all the mechanics but it’s not too difficult and very enjoyable! A lot of free roaming and no more turn base combat like in VII. Been enjoying it very much since I started playing.

    Good game, but not as advertised

    The game itself is great, but the royal edition is just the base game with a voucher code for the dlc which expired last year. Effectively it’s just the regular game. Just buy the normal edition for cheaper since the royal is now a ripoff

    I’ve never finished a ff game, but I loved VII and couldn’t get into X or XIII. This game I’ve enjoyed so far, and thought the open world and action style was fun. The acting and characters are a bit...weird but not usually too cringy and youbhet used to it.

    Fast shipping also came everything ok. My favorite game on PS4 so far <3 sooo good! I’m new in FF games, but I didn’t need to play the other games to understand about this world. I may start to play the other FF because of this XV version.

    An action-oriented Final Fantasy game still feels a little off, but the game itself is fun, the story and characters are interesting, and getting all the DLC in one low-cost bundle makes it all more than worth it.

    I dunno why so many people hate on ffxv,its awesome. The story is decent, plenty of side quests, i love the main characters, the car thing is weird but the soundtracks you can play are a nice throwback. And prompto's chocobo song is perfect lol
