It happens every time a modern Final Fantasy game is fully revealed: "this isn't what I want from Final Fantasy". Needless to say, the cycle is repeating with Final Fantasy XVI, which, to be fair, does represent what is perhaps the most significant departure from the series' traditional formula yet — at least in terms of mainline instalments.
Indeed, Final Fantasy XVI is a full-blown action RPG, with a heavy emphasis on combat that conjures comparisons to Devil May Cry or God of War. Based on our recent hands on with the game, we think it looks visually stunning and it plays brilliantly — but you can't please everyone. Previews seem to have divided opinion somewhat, and so we want to know how you feel about the upcoming blockbuster.
