    Started playing at the start of my 40 minute train commute and when I looked up again, we were pulling into my station.

    My expectations were high. So far, the game has exceeded them.

    The only thing I'm worried about is if the game is too short. The first chapter was amazing but it was very very short. I'm curious if each chapter is similar length.

    I have bought the original ff15 but I don't have a ps4 so if the game is too trimmed I might want to wait on buying / playing the mobile version. I would definitely play it if it was as massive content wise because I like longer games that have collecting and grinding.

    It’s shorter than the console I have it on
    Xbox one
    Some things I have noticed missing or not happening fishing, being able to go into restaurants and order food also that’s where you can find more side quests, also areas have Barriers keeping you from exploring
    Yes I am afraid too that it’s gonna be much shorter due to these things but I Bought it so I will play through it all and see if it opens up more at some point
    I want to grind and can’t :(

    Virtual Controls

    Anyone know if there is a way to change to virtual controls? I’m not a big fan of idly watching noct battle.

    I know and I agree but no options for it that I have found maybe down the road but I doubt it
    Basically it’s auto battle there are some small things you can control and you can warp

    I am worried i will finish it too fast and i don't know how much replay value there is to an auto battle linear RPG
    I still love the experience and glad we got it in any form those are just my worries
    I just started Chapter Two

    This is Square Enix we are talking about...

    I dont think we will get less than 30 hours out of this, im 100% sure that chapters are not all the same length, else there would be no point to their price scheme either.

    I would pay 60$ it if it had all the goods :)
    I have it on xbox so it's all good
    I love it dont get me wrong
    the option for camera and pic taking would have been cool too
    Shaun gives it 5 stars so I will stay with it and see
    his article does make some things clear about this version
    "You could drive around with your buddies, get in random fights, stumble on and solve side-quests that had nothing to do with anything in particular, and jam out to tunes in your car as you drove around. The same can't be said for the Pocket Edition, but I don't think it's necessarily a good or bad thing. The size of the world has been greatly reduced, and the flow of quests, mini-games, and sub activities have been reduced in scope to go with that. It hurts the game as a vehicle for goofing around, but it makes for a far tighter, more focused game all around. There's still plenty to do, but you won't (and to an extent can't) waste as much time doing it."

    As someone that doesn’t play on consoles anymore I am actually glad I haven’t played ff15s original release. The PE is so fun so far but just by reading the reviews I already feel slightly cheated. Not because of the price or anything like that I would have paid more then 20 bucks if the game was graphically dumbed down but kept everything else. I want the full open world and random side missions they say are cut out. But it’s ok because that’s the price I paid shifting from consoles to mobile only. Which was a bit of a transition originally since I’ve been a console gamer since ‘88 :-D but I’ve played and beat all ffs excluding 11 and 14 except 12 and 13. I played 12 and 13 but hated them. Anyways I’m off topic here. All I wanted to say was I’m glad I didn’t play through the original ff15 and jumped in on this version, the open-ness and size would have ruined this for me, that’s just personal I’m not saying it would for everyone. But I’ll say this as someone with an mfi controller. This game shouldn’t utilize it. Really. The controls they have implemented here are perfect for touch. I say if you want to use a controller then go play it on a console where it was built for a controller. I’ve always been on the side, where some games are meant for touch and some aren’t. And some games are ported over without mfi so that you can say you have a full mobile version where you can play it anytime anywhere.

    If anything, this is making me want to play through the mobile version and then go back and start over to play through the entirety of FFXV on PS4. I didn't get very far into FFXV my first attempt last year (I can probably blame Horizon Zero Dawn for that one) :D

    I wouldn’t say totally optimized for iPhone X. The gameplay and UI might be, but it looks like they maybe just scaled up the cinematics, causing parts to get cut off. At least some of the text in this one. Shows up fine in the screenshot, but was cut off due to the notch. Not a huge sacrifice, though. Probably the best compromise technically speaking.

    Yeah that’s so true
    I played it some on my Xbox one cuz I own it but not near enough now that I know this isn’t the full game I will be jumping back on it some
    This is still fun and I’m happy with it and didn’t mind dropping the 20$ sure don’t regret it
    Just wish I hadn’t been hearing for last couple months that this was full version cuz it’s def not
    I do hope there are some spots in the game that are less linear so far it’s all linear really but I’m only on chapter 2

The Android version of the Square Enix licensed 3D ARPG will be available in Australia, New Zealand, Philippines, India, Laos, Cambodia, and Burma, with an iOS version set to follow soon.
    Another FF game is dropping soon too and it looks good off topic but not really :)

    Load Times

    Anyone else having issues loading a save. Played through about 30 minutes of the first chapter, and loving it. Had to leave the app, and now its stuck on the loading screen. Rebooted phone and no luck. If its just me I'll assume the save file got corrupted somehow and will start again
