It doesn't offer the dense and intelligent narrative of Final Fantasy at its very best, but it's a joyful and heartfelt ball of fun, and it's great that Square Enix is able to find a way to balance out both approaches with its premiere franchise.

The Final Fantasy saga has always been characterized by bringing to the fans great worlds with their own personality and characters that players identify with at the moment.

World of final fantasy is one of a kind into FF Saga, it's chibi art style and overall freshness makes it a very onjoyable game.

Any improvements or additions to World of Final Fantasy feel rather minor with this Maxima expansion. It does carry a modest price tag if you want to return to this world again. Aside from that, Nintendo Switch owners can experience this enjoyable Final Fantasy spin-off for the first time.

Overall World of Final Fantasy is a solid game that's entertaining and offers a lot of different things to do in the game. Longtime fans of Final Fantasy will enjoy the many callouts to past games but the game itself doesn't hinge on this. The story takes a while to get interesting, but the best parts of the game have nothing to do with the story at all. It's ideal for anyone just looking for a fun game to play. It's a great game for Final Fantasy fans, and fans of JRPGs, though unlike Pokemon Let's Go, it's not going to be super easy for younger kids to get the most out of a complex battle and leveling system.

World of Final Fantasy Maxima simply continues to promote the celebratory vibe of the original game. New additions to the catalogue of both characters and Mirages truly encourage replayability, offering incentive to make return trips to Grymoire to tackle the many new endeavours they've brought with them. More classic Final Fantasy characters revived in a loveable art style not only act as a lure for younger eyes but also capture the essence of the franchise as a whole, no doubt provoking an appeal to FF aficionados too.

Despite its visual shortcomings, World of Final Fantasy Maxima still brings back the charm we all fell in love with two years ago. This crossover still feels like an excellent celebration for the series, spoiling long-time supporters with classic gameplay and a fanciful tale filled with Final Fantasy fervor.

While it struggles to figure out which audience it actually wants to appeal to, World of Final Fantasy Maxima is an enjoyable spinoff with a wealth of gameplay content.

Maxima's presentation is halfway there between the higher-end versions and the PS Vita release. The textures aren't as flat as on Vita, but there is some blurriness to be seen. Overall though, this is one of the better full-blown RPGs on the system, with a no-nonsense approach that kept me coming back.
