Final Fantasy XV Windows Edition isn't the perfect PC port by any means. It has its quirks, but the advantages over the console editions wipes those out in my mind. Not only does it have all the content available on console to this point at a reasonable price, but it also has mod tools coming and Steam Workshop support already implemented. It seems like the team behind the game, and Square Enix's leadership will continue to support and promote this game into the future too, so there's plenty of goodies in store down the line.

Final Fantasy XV Windows Edition is the only, true definitive edition of the Square Enix Japanese Role-Playing Game, thanks to the superior graphics quality and several gameplay and story enhancements, which are also included in the consoles' Royal Edition. The open world nature of the first half of the game may not be for JRPG fans, especially for those who prefer a more traditional approach, but this shouldn't stop anybody from experiencing Noctis' journey the way it was meant to be experienced. The true King is finally here, and Eos can finally rejoice.

It’s not said enough – sometimes, it’s OK for games to get “fixed” after launch. Developers aren’t always able to control their release schedules, and when a game is better and more robust a year later, that’s a win for everyone. Look at No Man’s Sky, for example. In the case of FFXV, it was already an excellent game.

The visual improvements here show that the Windows Edition is the definitive version of Final Fantasy 15: it has never looked better, and mod support suggests an exciting future ahead for the game. It's a shame that FF15 doesn't recapture the depth of the series’ past entries, and games like The Witcher 3 and Divinity: Original Sin 2 really highlight the weaknesses in the sidequests here. This road trip, though, is still well worth taking.

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. We know that there’s still several miles of road left to go though, so it seems like this trip has not quite found its end just yet.

It helps that the Windows Edition comes with a number of graphical enhancements, solid keyboard & mouse implementation, and the potential to go beyond console limitations with ridiculously high frame rates and resolutions. There are technical issues here and there, some that will cause frustration, but this still is a sensational port for both those who want to double dip and those who have yet to play the RPG. It may not be perfect, but Final Fantasy XV Windows Edition is the dose of Final Fantasy we all need.

Final Fantasy XV: Windows Edition is the best way to experience this huge RPG and all of its main content released to date. With stunning visuals, impressive performance and hours upon hours of content PC gamers cannot go wrong with this title being in their collection. It may have a few issues here and there that carry over from the initial release but nothing that takes away from the experience being a truly PC one.

All of the improvements, combined with the level of attention given to the high-resolution textures, are what makes us recommend this edition as the definitive way to experience Final Fantasy XV... if you've got enough Gil in your wallet to handle the machine specs. It's taxing, sure, but it's amazingly pretty despite its flaws, and plays like a dream too.

Final Fantasy XV Windows Edition is firstly and primarily a fantastic addition to the Final Fantasy catalogue. It addresses the critical faults of its predecessor and sets the franchise back up on the path to greatness. Memorable characters, exciting combat, and a risk taken with the change to the open world, show Square Enix as developers who have proven their credentials for delivering top-class RPG experiences. It just slightly feels that it was behind the curve here, which may be as a result of the long development time.

Square Enix announced that future episodes will be on their way throughout the year, and I imagine further special events and minor updates will follow. It’s been interesting to watch the ongoing development of this game, though I am not upset that it’s taken this long to add in these elements. Instead, I look forward to seeing what’s around the corner, because if Windows Edition is any indication, it will be more than worth playing.

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. Characters, heartbreak, and joy over any one mechanic or impressive set piece. Weirdness too, from the obsession with food through to the use of cars to get from one location to another. And then jump out to hop on a giant chicken-bird thing.

Final Fantasy XV puede que haya tardado un poco más de la cuenta en llegar a compatibles, pero, al menos, eso ha permitido que se estrene en su mejor versión posible, con todos sus contenidos descargables y con una conversión ejemplar: bien optimizada y muy cuidada que aprovecha la potencia de los equipos más potentes, sin olvidarse de incluir las suficientes opciones como para que aquellos con ordenadores más modestos también puedan disfrutarlo.
Jose Luis Lopez de GarayoMar 16, 2018
Esta es una versión de PC especialmente necesaria. Desde un punto jugable FFXV no fue un juego perfecto, pero sus diversos elementos como la caza, pesca o los selfies de Ignis hicieron de este título algo especial. Por primera vez Final Fantasy ponía más hincapié en simular una relación entre amigos y lo que podría ser un viaje de carretera con los mismos y todos estos aspectos se benefician tanto del contenido adicional como de las opciones gráficas que nos permiten llevar los visuales un paso más allá de lo que podíamos en consola.

Final Fantasy XV: Windows Edition es una muy buena conversión de PC que no sólo se centra en optimizar bien el producto y proveer un buen puñado de opciones. También ha sacado partido a las tecnologías únicas de la plataforma para crear la edición más completa hasta la fecha de su clásica saga.

Square Enix hat mit der PC-Version von Final Fantasy 15 viel richtig gemacht. Die Grafik des Rollenspiels sieht größtenteils phänomenal aus. Voraussetzung ist natürlich ein entsprechend potenter Rechner und viel Grafikspeicher für die hochauflösenden Texturen. Ansonsten springen bei der gebotenen Grafikpracht gelegentlich Pop-Ins oder manch hässliche Textur ins Auge. Auf den Grafikoptionen "Niedrig" und "Mittel" kann ich FF15 nur bedingt empfehlen.

Dass Final Fantasy 15 ein klasse Rollenspiel mit einer wunderschönen Optik, flotten Kämpfen und einer märchenhaften Story ist, habe ich schon vor einem Jahr beim Spielen der PS4-Version feststellen dürfen. Bereits beim ersten Durchspielen war ich vor allem von den Möglichkeiten in der riesigen Spielwelt begeistert. Allein mit dem Fahren über die Straßen der Spielwelt Eos und dem Angel-Minispiel habe ich Stunden verbracht und dabei die wunderschöne Natur genossen.

"Presque" car en effet, depuis sa commercialisation initiale, des choses ont changé - notamment dans l'exploration et la gestion des tâches, ainsi que le déroulement de certains chapitres. On reste dans une quête épique, aux personnages attachants, où l'on s'extasie face aux décors ou aux ennemis autant qu'on peut afficher la plus grande incompréhension face à d'étranges failles scénaristiques et une cascade de missions génériques... Avec tout le contenu paru jusqu'ici et même plus. Une bonne affaire.

Final Fantasy XV est un titre très différent de ce que la série nous a offert jusqu’ici. Optant pour une narration plus compacte tenant sur une vingtaine d’heures, il nous laisse spectateur d’une histoire bien plus profonde qu’il n’y paraît, sorte de quête initiatique désespérée. Mais il offre aussi un open world gigantesque et magnifique avec des panoramas qui font baver. Blindé de contenus annexes pour prolonger la durée de vie à une centaine d’heures, Final Fantasy XV réussit son pari et s’avère être un hit incontournable de cette fin d’année, et ceci malgré quelques soucis de finition.

Il fallait être optimiste pour imaginer la lumière jaillir des profondeurs. Jusqu'à la fin, Final Fantasy XV s'est employé à colmater les brèches, avec son réalisateur Tabata dans le rôle du pompier de service, mais son trop plein d'ambition s'est heurté à la réalité d'un développement chaotique - budget, délais, savoir-faire vs envergure du projet. Les stigmates sont visibles à l'oeil nu, de la technique brinquebalante aux trous béants de l'intrigue, sans même parler de la seconde partie du jeu posée sur des rails, qui risque de sidérer tous ceux qui étaient vendus à la promesse d'un monde ouvert Final Fantasy.

Final Fantasy XV: Windows Edition è indubbiamente la versione migliore del gioco in termini di resa visiva (se si dispone di un PC abbastanza potente). Gli sviluppatori di Square Enix hanno realizzato un port grandioso e, lavorando sulle impostazioni, si può rendere il gioco fluido su qualsiasi sistema situato tra la configurazione minima e quella massima, senza che per questo diventi orrendo da vedere.

Sonuç olarak Final Fantasy XV: Windows Edition, oyunu oynanması gerektiği hale getirmiş. PC performansı ile oynaması çok daha keyifli bir hal alan oyunu Final Fantasy hayranları ve seriyi ilk defa oynayacak olan oyuncular gönül rahatlığı ile oynayabilir. Minimum 27 saatlik ana hikayesi ile sizleri PC başına bağlayacağından eminim. Eğer oyunu konsolda oynadıysanız da tekrar PC'de oynamanızı şiddetle öneririm.
