Truthfully, I don't know that anyone was really asking for the untold story of Prompto; but now that we have it, I find that I like him a lot more than I did. And of course, more Aranea is always welcome. If you're not already sick of Final Fantasy XV, it's a very fun two hours

By the time Final Fantasy XV is fully finished, most of its mysteries and interludes will have been explained. It's up to you if you want to discover them individually or all at once with the eventual Game of the Year edition (which might come a full year after XV's November 2016 release, given that Episode Ignis isn't dropping until December). For me the main story juice has been worth the squeeze, but the DLC has not.

Short and unsatisfying DLC that makes the prior one better than it was.

Final Fantasy XV: Episode Prompto plugs another gap in the main game's still woefully disjointed story, but a seriously shoddy mix of gameplay mechanics makes it a difficult DLC to recommend.

Despite the average story, lack of leveling up and dubious balance, Final Fantasy XV: Episode Prompto is a good DLC with nice shooting elements, spectacular final battle and beautiful trips on a snowmobile.

Episode Prompto is a better experience than Episode Gladio but not by much.

Episode Prompto is a far better chapter that Episode Gladiolus was. With a different but interesting gameplay, really good story and a design that moves away from being linear, this DLC has many good reasons to convince players to return to Final Fantasy XV.

Overall, this chapter would have been better off being a wholly linear experience, like Episode Gladiolus, because of the lack of meaning to the extraneous content. It was an extravagant idea that could have had so much potential, but the effort feels like it was only met halfway and leaves far too much to be desired. But it is worth it for the devoted fan because Prompto's blindly optimistic character wasn't truly developed in the main story.

Episode Prompto is fun to play, and it's nice to see the character fleshed out even more; however, the script is far too cheesy and suffers from such bad pacing that it's hard to recommend it to anyone but Prompto fans.

A big improvement over Episode Gladiolus, Episode Prompto is a decent addition for fans.
