Not everything. Water and reflection got downgraded. And the final build lost some color tone, lighting and got too bright and almost bluish compared the Duscae build. I've attached some videos which have evidences of the case.
Graphics weren't an issue. But issues spawned due to the focus...
Episode Duscae was nice but they downgraded the graphics in the final iteration. ;)
Comrades was nice idea but it's absolutely dead. Turns out the fans don't really care about the graphics that holds up!
This is my stance. Graphics no longer matters any more. FFXIII and FFXV both tried to be pioneers in graphics (or to be shiny in particular) so much they failed to see and address the gaping holes in both storytelling and characterization which are basically the primary pillars of being a Final...
After Shadowbringers finally dumping huge lore and flesh outing its villains, it got shot to the top 3. MMO aren't my thing either. I just went in with low expectations and it was worth it. If you are judging a game by its genre, you are gonna miss out.
TGS is nearly upon us. It means new music is about to be cherished.
FFVII have two different albums to offer. One is "FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE SHINRA Tracks" which featured SHINRA related music tracks. The other is the recordings of SQUARE ENIX JAZZ -FINAL FANTASY VII- at billboard Live TOKYO.
