The reviews take on the game should be take as opinion of someone, not a fact.
Yeah, if they thought it was an 8.2, it was an 8.2 to them. It's all good.

I was surprised by it, though. I figured most of the larger publications would be the ones praising it and the smaller operations would be the more critical ones.

Fucking IGN ruins everything :(
Don't get mad. Most reviews are around 9/10 or equivalents. Thats awesome both for a post-FFXIII/FFXIV1.0 Final Fantasy game, and specially for a game that's have a development cycle as troubled as FFXV had. The team made a exceptional job with this game.

Tabata rises as my favourite director of the franchise at the moment. Not all his games are great, but I like the guy. He saved/created a very good FF.

Sitting at 86 so far on MC. If it can keep that up, I'll be more than happy to call that fair. This game is divisive, so one person's 95 is another one's 75. 86 would be pretty solid.

Great for me.
I predicted a MC of 85. The more the game gets, the happier I am.

I hope with all these lessons SQEX had to endure during this development cycle, FFXVI get here soon and an even better FF.

expected a higher score from ign, and a lower from destructoid

nice trade-off i guess

my prediction was 87, but there's a lot of reviews to be included in the coming days... so far im satisfied.

Shreier's review is full of hype! Love that final paragraph:

You’re at your parents’ house for Thanksgiving, and you’ve just gotten a review copy of one of the most anticipated video games in modern history. You’re much older now; you have a life, a job, a relationship, responsibilities. You can feel yourself getting jaded. Few big-budget Japanese games live up to the ones you loved all those years ago, and you don’t think this new one will have as much of an impact on you. Then you start playing. And playing. When you finish the game, thirsty and bleary-eyed, you feel like you just got punched in the gut. What an ending. You’re not ready to stop spending time with Noct, Gladio, Iggy, and Prompto. You look over at the clock. It’s 4:30 in the morning. You pick up the controller and jump back in.


I'm just minorly, slightly disappointed by the length of the story. I was expecting FFXII-length game and he did it in around 20 hours. And that's more than enough, honestly, but I was just expecting longer based on the dev's comments. I'm sure I'll still find a way to get 200+ out of it, so it's all good.

I think most of that is in the side content. Story length was a bit short for me too. Just boiled down to cutscenes, both XII and XIII were seven hours plus, while XV is around five hours. Still, it adopts a dialogue and description-based means of filling in the blanks, like a fusion of Dark Souls and The Last of Us within the world scale of Witcher 3. Isn't perfect, but it means there's only as much story as you want to find. If you want to find more, you have to hunt about for it.
