Why does it look like a cellphone game or least mobile game grade quality? Not directly stating about graphics here, i mean how it looks and plays. Kinda look like that Kingdom hearts game on cellphone but i'll try it since is free. (I didn't even know about this.) I was hoping that more anime video was available or the movie is on youtube. :P

This Game is no where to be found. Can anyone else find it? (USA REGION)

So basically, every bonus content that was a pre-order or collector's edition incentive is now available for free or very cheap (50 cents each). Whoever bought the UCE got scammed so bad for a crappy looking figma lmao.

Well perhaps, but a bonus item included isn't a scam, is as you said, incentive. The idea was to secure orders for a product, while perhaps is bad to consumers is good marketing for publishers. Let's not forget that square has been doing bundle demo for games for years since ps1 with games like brave fencer musashi + FF8 Demo, ps2 with Dragon quest 8 with FF 12 demo.

This is so dumb. Looks like more of a gateway to mobile gaming (expect a future port) and fast money making scheme.

At least go back to retro style by and make it turn by turn basis!

I miss squaresoft.. Square Enix sucks :(

Do you honestly think it is? (non-sarcastic, asking cause I've yet to play)
That could be a meme already.
Sure it is not better than FFXV.
FFXV is not that bad. The wandering around is good, in the beginning, and probably gets old fast.
FFXV disappoints storywise IMHO, because of lacking main and side character development, and because it's storytelling takes a dive into the void after chapter 9.
Gameplay itself is ok, not outstanding.

Don't worry. I played it at launch. You're missing nothing. :)

He's not kidding, I was bored 5 minutes after playing it, that was even after someone raved about how much fun that they had.

Still better combat than FFXV. Looks better and requires doing something other than O.

I disagree, more apt thing for me to say is, are we playing the same thing. I put 100 hours into 15 and enjoyed it very much (as it was more than holding O, unless you didn't learn how to play it right)

Missing nothing...I would like to play something related to ff xv at least -.-

It should be up for consoles now, but honestly I've watched/played pretty much everything related to 15 so far, and this is my least favorite of the bunch.

Game is better than FFXV lol I really like it:

Sigh....different strokes for different folks, it's free so I'm not complaining about that, but it is a very shallow and boring exp. Not even close to 15.
