My little brother and I finished the game a few weeks ago, and it was fun! Definitely not what I expected (which was a Kingdom Hearts clone), but a pleasant surprise, not a nasty one.

I have a sneaking suspicion that part of the reason the development cycle took so long was because the creators had to spend a few years clawing Nomura's influence out of the game and then figuring out what to do with the remaining mess. As my little brother put it, "I'm glad it didn't end up being a game based on nothing but some old character designs Nomura did," which is what it looked like it was going to be for the longest time. There IS something of substance here, although what that substance is is...weird. 

Spoilery talk about FFXV's themes )
In conclusion, 8.5 out of 10!

So the gameplay trailer for FF Versus XIII FFXV (name change!) certainly looks outrageously beautiful.

That in-game graphics are sick.

But I can't shake the feeling that this game is Kingdom Hearts with Cloud and Zack instead of Donald and Goofy, and Sasuke fromNaruto instead of Sora. Dude still has his keyblade though.
