    Is it not true that some of FFXV's side content is ridiculously extensive?

    Like, I know that there are way more trivial side quests in FFXV than non-trivial ones, but some of the non-trivial ones sound like they offer a lot more than just a unique location or some differences in NPC states. There's supposedly a unique secret dungeon that takes five hours to beat, for instance. I've heard that there are Niflheim bases with their own mini-bosses and bosses that exist outside of the scope of the story and allow you to play either stealthy or guns blazing.

    The impression I get, in other words, is that there was plenty of time spent on side content, but that the content wasn't spread evenly so you'd get a bunch of trivial stuff alongside the real meaty bits. Is that an incorrect assessment?

    Man there are some douche bags on Metacritic (user reviews).

    People saying the game is only 20 hours long, and that it's crap, and it's broken, and bad graphics etc etc.

    They must be playing a different game. I am 10 hours in, and I have only just got in Duscae and it's genuinely amazing. Fighting is so much fun, especially when I pull off a great combo and then throw in a badass Fira for good measure and hear that awesome pop and blo through my speakers. Hah.

    EasyAllies (ex GameTrailers staff and my fav, most trusted reviewers) rated the game 4.5/5.



    I need no more.

    I really want to watch the Easy Allies review, cause like you they are my fave, but I'm worried the review might have some spoilers. Can you tell me if it does?

    No spoilers. In fact, they desisted if telling too much about the endgame because they wanted gamers to experience it by themselves. They jusy said really good things awaited there.

    Haven't read all of the reviews yet, but I have heard word that one of them featured end game content in their video review.

    Now I don't know if that's true or not, but that's in pretty poor taste to include such footage if it is.

    So beware when diving into reviews guys and gals. Gosh can't believe I have to even say this for reviews of all things. It's not like it's a Live chat in a live stream =/

    I don't read of watch reviews of FF XV. I am playing the game, then will review it. And only then will I read other reviews to see if they align with mine in any way or not.

    I don't need other people's opinion to influence my own.

    So far, the game has been a blast.

    Im on 7 hours and still on chapter 1 so this will be way more than a 20 hour game hoping to beat what I played on ff12 which was over 200 hours

    I think those people rushed through the story part of the game just so they can go online and talk about how good/bad it was to others.

    It's like social media validation addiction in a way.

    Never understand this type of behaviour, but for this game specifically, people are in a hurry to use any means to bash it from what I've seen.

    From what I've heard, the main quest really is 20-30hrs, even if you do some convenient sidequests and hunts along the way. Calling it a 20hr game because of that is kind of deceptive, though.

    First off, it's an action RPG, so 20-30hrs is a normal length for the main quest of a game of its type. Kingdom Hearts games are about that long, depending on how you play (and in my opinion, the ones that are longer are often worse for it).

    And, more importantly, it seems to have been designed with the intention of most of one's playtime being post-game, considering how much post-game content I've heard about. I kind of prefer it that way, to be honest, because that means less of a chance of getting spoiled on story elements. XD;
