Final Fantasy Type-0 HD Reviews Summary

Summary: Final Fantasy Type-0 HD is ultimately a port of a good game from the PSP. The mechanics, design and plot are all exemplary, however, the limitations of the weak hardware translate to this HD port as well.

Final Fantasy Type-0's gritty tone and fast action is a welcome change of pace.

Type-0 certainly gets real-time combat right, but this port of an RPG that began on handheld is otherwise not much fun to play on PC.

No Recommendation / Blank

Such is the quandary at the heart of every long-running game series. Type-0 HD bears all the hallmarks of a game simultaneously keen to escape its past while being forced to embrace its heritage. At its best, it's a fine, smartly-paced action-RPG with thrilling combat mechanics that just happens to be a better fit for a handheld than a home console. But, crucially, it represents a promise unkept: this isn't so much a blend of new ideas, more a melange of existing ones. It may have been conceived as a fresh start for Final Fantasy, but Type-0 is more often a false dawn.

The combat has it's moments but it has very little to do with Final Fantasy, although the awful storytelling is all too familiar from the rest of the Final Fantasy XIII series.
