Final Fantasy XV: Windows Edition
Top Critic Average
Offers a fantastic road trip, even if it's not a particularly in-depth RPG.
If you have a mid-to-high end PC, this is the way to experience this game, either if you're playing it for the first time or if you want to go through it a second time.
With the game's release on Windows and the final additions to the game on console in the Royal Edition, it now feels that Square Enix have put the final brushstrokes to their masterpiece. As Final Fantasy XV comes to the end of its long adventure, it's fitting that it do so in such style, letting people savour the artistic vision behind the game in such glorious detail.
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 love 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.
The PC version of Final Fantasy XV is the best, ultimate way to live the experience created by Square Enix for every Final Fantasy fan. Graphically astounding, the game includes every content and patch released in the last year and a half and a co-op multiplayer mode, and it's definitely recommended, whether you're planning a second run with Noctis and his friends, or you've never been on Eos before.

Even though it requires oodles of storage space and I'm yet to find a mix of parts that can run it at 60fps in 4K with the graphics cranked, I can't help but be impressed with Final Fantasy 15 Windows Edition. Featuring all the charms of the console version, plus the DLC, customisable graphics and improved frame rates, Final Fantasy 15 Windows Edition is the best version of Square Enix's latest epic that money can buy.
A Final Fantasy for fans and first-timers.
A lot of work has been put into Final Fantasy XV's 2018 revision, and it's the best version of the game...so far.
An honest, captivating ride-along with four best friends who just so happen to save the world through the power of friendship.
Regardless of just how many improvements and additions Final Fantasy XV will undergo in the next year or so, the game is far from perfect and hardly the entry that unifies the fanbase, be they long devoted fans or burnt out from the past entries. What the game is, however, is a flawed but still fun masterpiece that looks and plays like no other Action/RPG hybrid out there and is still worth a cursory glance, if not a full commitment.
