Dissidia Final Fantasy NT
Top Critic Average
Overall, the game has been out since 2015 where it started on PlayStation 4, and now it is on Steam. It feels like it could be a great game if it didn't have so many issues and miscues for me.
Dissidia Final Fantasy NT is the third installment of the popular fight spin-off that puts the most popular heroes and villains in the Final Fantasy saga on the battlefield.

Dissidia Final Fantasy NT is a beautiful dream for any FF fan out there and a new experience for fighting games lovers which of course has so many flaws but could be a worthwhile experience nonetheless.

This squad-based brawler with 3 vs 3 arena is good choice for fans of FF. But do not expect too much.

When everything comes together, when there is no lag, and when a team works in unison to annihilate their opponents, Dissidia Final Fantasy NT is at its greatest. Unfortunately, the netcode is too unreliable, and the distinct lack of modes for offline play just isn't good enough for a game that had plenty of time before it made the transition from arcade to console. There is scope to expand this into something much more, but whether the budget and will is there remains to be seen. For one of the most original fighting games on the market, though, this is well worth dedicating some time to if you're a Final Fantasy fan.
Compared to the great fighting games we've seen as of late, Dissidia NT feels a bit slow and slightly dated. It's still a solid fighter and lovers of Final Fantasy games over the years will appreciate its dream roster and beautiful character designs. That being said, its brand of technical combat won't be for everybody and its luster is also outshone by several excellent rivals in the suddenly competitive fighting game space.
Final Fantasy Dissidia NT is a tough game to like. It's a bare-bones arcade port with a scant new roster, convoluted mechanics, and a story mode that leaves much to be desired. If you're willing to push past all of that, there's a lot of fun beneath the awkward exterior. Players have to be enough of a Final Fantasy fan to persevere and enough of a fighting game fan to feel comfortable with the mechanics. There's something here for fans of the franchise who are willing to put in the effort, but as a single-player game, it pales in comparison to its predecessors.
There are a lot of fighting games currently in gamers' minds, and Dissidia does little to steal any of that mindshare.
With a little bit more polish, Dissidia Final Fantasy NT could be great, but as it is now it's a huge disappointment.
