Fans of the series have a lot to be excited about. There’s voice acting throughout pretty much the entire opening segment and the combat looks fast. It’s a weird mix of action and strategy, though. Despite being presented as action style combat it’s a little more tactical and on the rails than perhaps you would expect. This demo is a good place to start getting fans used to that style, though, and avoid the initial surprise they might go through when the game officially launches in April.
This is a great opportunity for Final Fantasy fans to get their fix and for those not quite as familiar with the series to get a quick intro. Soon you’ll be running through the streets of Midgar again like it’s 1997. You can access the demo on the Playstation store.
