Review: Final Fantasy 16 is an incredible action game that doesn’t quite deliver the RPG heritage

Final Fantasy has never played better, and 16’s cast is destined to be fan favourites. We just wish that when they are outside of the Hollywood blockbuster-tier adventures of the main quest, they were given some more interesting adventures to pursue.

  • Excellent combat
  • Stunning visuals
  • Outstanding Music
  • Engaging, instantly likable cast
  • Poor pacing
  • RPG elements feel somewhat tacked on
  • Early fights can be repetitive
4 / 5
