Storyline

The magical kingdom of Lucis is home to the hallowed Crystal, but the menacing empire of Niflheim will stop at nothing to make it theirs. War has raged between the two for as long as most can remember. King Regis of Lucis commands an elite force of soldiers dubbed the Kingsglaive. Wielding their king's magic, Nyx Ulric and his fellow glaives stand before the crown city of Insomnia, fighting to stay the inexorable advance of Niflheim's imperial army. Before the overwhelming military might of the empire, King Regis can only salvage his kingdom by accepting an ultimatum-he must cede all lands outside the crown city, and see his son, Prince Noctis, wed to Lady Lunafreya, the former princess of Tenebrae now captive of Niflheim. As the war of wills rages, the machinations of Niflheim transform Insomnia into an awe-inspiring battleground, pulling Nyx into a struggle for the very survival of the kingdom.

Worth the wait
28 August 2016 | by (Tokyo, Japan) – See all my reviews

Let us be frank, for a moment. Square Enix had been in a funk for some time. It seemed as though their golden era was long gone, and in was mediocrity. Then the buzz began anew, and with the reworking of their most famous title, they also blew the dust off of FFXV. I am happy to see that they have done so, and to get everyone into a frenzy gave us a movie.

Now, the critics aren't happy with the movie because they don't quite understand. They don't understand that we have been waiting for about a decade to see the swords that can move you from one place to another (funny enough I used tel word and it is telling me it is a prohibited word... What did that word ever do to you?) the crystal that protects all, and a little glimpse into the world of FFXV.

To those who have waited, this was exactly what we wanted.

The graphics, stunning. The music, breathtaking. I don't think a single person didn't let out a slight gasp as Somnus Nemorus (the track originally released with the original trailer) began to play in the background at the gala. You knew at that moment that the dark, grittiness we were promised would be delivered.

The monsters were all noticeable: a behemoth, Crazy Eyes, a Ultros, and the mother of all monsters that anyone who has ever played Final Fantasy VII would immediately know as Diamond Weapon.

Yeah. You know things are going down when you have Diamond Weapon unleashed in the middle of a city.

So, yeah. I got my money's worth. I went in expecting exactly what I got. Was the story perfect? No, but it isn't supposed to be. It is a gateway into the world we have waited for, a way to whet our appetite and give us the strength to wait just a little longer.
