Final Fantasy 16 One Year Later Poll

One year ago today, on the 22nd June 2023, the latest mainline instalment in the Final Fantasy franchise was released on PS5. Final Fantasy 16 is perhaps the furthest that Square Enix's mainline series has ever strayed from its traditional formula, going full action RPG, complete with Devil May Cry-esque combat. But its bold new direction didn't stop it from receiving incredibly positive reviews, with many calling it the best single-player Final Fantasy title in over a decade.

Looking back on our own Final Fantasy 16 PS5 review, we awarded it an 'excellent' 9/10, and gushed about its utterly stunning boss fights. "At its best, Final Fantasy 16 is a jaw-dropping epic of rarely seen proportions," we wrote. "It's pretty much the pinnacle of cinematic spectacle in modern games."

Meanwhile, Final Fantasy 16 currently has a Push Square user rating of 8.4/10, which ranks it as the seventh best Final Fantasy game on PlayStation, according to our Best Final Fantasy Games list. Impressive.
