After the crystal is stolen by an invading nation, Niflheim, a global conflict ensues with all other nations wishing to gain it for themselves. Alongside the main protagonist, Noctis is joined by a military tactician Ignis Scienta, who can deftly handle a katana in battle, a melee fighter named Gladiolus Amicitia, gun-wielding Prompto Argentum, and head of the Royal Family Guards Cor Leonis. There's one other character that appears to get close with Noctis, even if her connection with him is still unknown. Her name is Stella Nox Fleuret, she seems to be strong and fight well with her rapier. Against this backdrop of a world at war, Noctis Lucis Caelum and his closest friends embark on an epic journey to try and get the crystal back. Expand

    Final Fantasy XV may not feel like an older game from the franchise, but that doesn't mean it's bad. I grew up with the older Final Fantasy game and while XV is different, that doesn't make it a bad game in the franchise. I enjoyed my time spent in game and look forward to doing more.

    This version of FFXV does deliver a much more complete experience and fixes many of the issues present in the original. It was a great adventure when it came out, and now it's better than ever.

    Even with its faults, from the weird two-halves of the story to the often poorly designed and uninteresting side-quests, Final Fantasy XV feels like a triumph. Discovering a new location or seeing a giant monster for the first time, Final Fantasy XV constantly surprises. And thanks to its likeable cast of heroes, provides as memorable an animated adventure of a boy band in a world filled with monsters could possibly be.

    All in all, Final Fantasy XV Windows Edition is the best console-to-pc port that Square Enix has produced to date. On top of that, the Royal Edition is the best version of Final Fantasy XV – so far, and even if only just. The route taken to get here has been a bumpy one, needlessly long with and perhaps without the most efficient direction, but the journey here has left us at a better place than we were at starting out.

    Final Fantasy XV’s beautiful graphics and exciting fights unfortunately come with a confusing story, irritating characters, long and unnecessary cutscenes, and optimization issues.

    I enjoyed it a lot, as it has not been for a very long time with a video game in this generation.
    With over 150 hours and more playing time I never get tired of playing with it.
    And for this I highly recommend it to all videogames fans.

Real-time interaction between the characters is the beating heart of the game, which can happen at anytime even during the madness of combat. The combat itself is fun and engaging with impressive animations. There is a lot of depth to the combat that can be reached by the big verity of weapons, the aerial acrobatic move sets, and the interaction with the environment around you. The game is also rich with side content and activities. The experience as a whole is emotional and immersive. Collapse Expand

Compared to the console counterparts, especially XBOX ONE, this game looks lush and fluid and actually loads fast. It's understandable that people have the issues they have with the game, but the developers have been honest and upfront with improvements and I admire that. Maybe, FFXV isn't perfect, but if you are going to play this game this is the version to go with! Expand

    Très attendu par toute une communauté de fans qui n'en pouvait plus d'attendre de pouvoir y jouer enfin sur PC, Final Fantasy XV WindowsTrès attendu par toute une communauté de fans qui n'en pouvait plus d'attendre de pouvoir y jouer enfin sur PC, Final Fantasy XV Windows Edition est à présent bien devenu une réalité. Faisant table rase du passé, mettant son gameplay à nu et rebâtissant une nouvelle légende pour attirer et séduire tant les habitués qu'une nouvelle génération de joueurs jusque là réticente au J-RPG, Final Fantasy XV a parfaitement su apprendre de ses erreurs en revoyant totalement sa copie et en s'inspirant des meilleurs RPG occidentaux pour faire grandir son mythe. Ouvrant les portes d'un monde ouvert, dynamisant ses combats et étoffant sa diversité tout en dépoussiérant un concept qui en avait bien besoin, ce quinzième opus de la saga vedette de Square Enix instaure un nouveau mètre étalon qui, espérons-le en inspirera bien d'autres par la suite. Cette Windows Edition ajoute quantité d'extras au jeu de base, qui récompenseront les joueurs PC d'avoir du attendre 14 longs mois de plus que les joueurs consoles. Graphiquement et techniquement c'est une gifle monumentale !!!
    Voici donc en détails les "+" de cette Windows Edition:
    Extension « Ruines d'Insomnia » : des quêtes secondaires et des ennemis inédits tels que Cerbère et Oméga seront disponibles dans cette nouvelle version étendue d'Insomnia. Les joueurs pourront également se battre avec les anciens rois du Lucis.
    Le contrôle total du bateau royal : le monde d'Éos s'agrandit ! Les joueurs pourront explorer l'étendue d'eau située entre le cap Caem et Altissia. Ils pourront en outre pêcher depuis le bateau et découvrir de nouveaux poissons et de nouvelles recettes.
    Un nouvel accessoire permettant d'activer l'« arsenal fantôme suprême » : les joueurs pourront déclencher de puissantes attaques avec l'arsenal fantôme. Une fois toutes les armes de l'arsenal réunies, les joueurs pourront trouver un accessoire dans une certaine partie du monde et débloquer l'arsenal fantôme suprême.
    Un mode première personne inédit qui permettra aux joueurs de vivre l'aventure à travers les yeux de Noctis.
    Plus d'une dizaine de contenus téléchargeables, y compris des armes, des décorations pour la Regalia, et des objets.
    Tout le contenu du Season Pass, qui comprend les épisodes de Gladiolus, Prompto et Ignis, ainsi que le pack d'extension multijoueur : « Frères d'armes ».
    Les archives : les joueurs pourront consulter les histoires de la « Cosmogonie » éparpillées d'un bout à l'autre du monde de FINAL FANTASY XV. Des mythes et légendes locaux supplémentaires seront en outre placés dans divers nouveaux endroits. Ils permettront aux joueurs d'en apprendre davantage sur le monde.
    Une quête pour obtenir et renforcer la Regalia Type-D.

    PUNTOS A FAVOR:

    - Buen sistema de combate, sencillo pero adictivo.
    - Gran sistema de progresión y sensación de ir mejorando.
    - Gran número de parámetros, estadísticas y equipo que influye en la partida.
    - Acabado visual con muy buen gusto, con algunas localizaciones sorprendentes e impactantes.
    - Apartado sonoro excelente, con especial mención a ciertas piezas musicales.
    - Personajes principales con gran carisma, pero totalmente desaprovechados a raíz de la trama.
    - Variedad enorme de monstruos y enemigos y un diseño de los mismos espectacular.
    - Gran número de añadidos en forma de minijuegos, batidas de caza, zonas secretas y en definitiva bastantes cosas que hacer.
    - Funcionamiento correcto en PC. Algunos problemas de rendimiento en determinadas zonas, pero buen port en general.

    PUNTOS EN CONTRA:

    - Hilo argumental muy muy pobre, al igual que la narrativa.
    - Capítulos muy descompensados y algunos aburridos en un tramo final de historia totalmente atropellado.
    - Misiones secundarias de relleno y de recadero. Insufribles.
    - El antagonista deja bastante que desear, así como la contextualización de todo lo que ocurre.
    - En un juego en el que debería primar la narrativa, el mundo abierto le resta gran parte de la intensidad.
    - Pésimo uso de las invocaciones.
    - El sistema de magia es totalmente prescindible para avanzar en el juego.
    - La cámara es simplemente nefasta. A veces no sabes ni donde está el personaje o qué está pasando en los combates.

    CONCLUSIÓN:

    Estamos ante un muy buen juego en casi todos sus aspectos, divertido a nivel jugable y bastante adictivo. Pero el nombre que lleva es "Final Fantasy", y esto le obliga a contarnos algo épico, algo que trascienda y algo que emocione, y para mi este juego no cumple con esto. El esqueleto es magnífico, pero le falta la parte más importante, el alma. En condiciones normales un juego como este tendría una nota más alta, pero considero que este factor es tan importante en este tipo de juegos que su carencia repercute mucho en su valoración final. A pesar de todo merece la pena jugarlo, pero me deja la sensación de oportunidad desaprovechada.

    NOTA: 7

Decent combat, many glitches, story is absolutely TERRIBLE and poorly told (game could have started at Chapter 9), characters are boring and uninteresting, and side quests are HORRIBLE. Seriously, 3 years and it seems no developer has learned from Witcher 3. WE DON'T WANT YOUR BORING FETCH SIDE QUESTS. FEED A CAT AND GAIN A LEVEL. UGH!

    Final Fantasy XIII started taking the series down, Final Fantasy XIII-2 made it deep into **** and Final Fantasy XV throws an anvil over the ****
