I actually liked the controls of Duscae.

Same here.

The full game release would probably look like Duscae since they said that part is actually from the game and the demo part would not be in the game at all. I am guessing the graphic and frame rate issues are due to them just wanting to get something out quick for the fan for this event. So they probably didn't want to spend or invest that much time on the demo if none of it is really going to be a part of the main game.

 

Sounds plausible and I hope this is true! I played it again and I did like the control updates after going back to play Duscae again.  Either way, this is a day one purchase for me!

I never played the demo from FF Type 0, but this demo sucked. But reading some of the comments, I get why. Wish they would have just given us a chunk of the real game instead (like they did for FF7, FF8, and FFXII)... something like this seems like it would turn off the average gamer who didn't really know much about the game. Controls were way too stiff, combat was repetitive and dull (actual game's combat looks way much fun).

I speak some Japanese so I will translate: it's a demo. Stop judging it as a final product. Thank you.

Finally played the new demo and I really enjoyed it. It had that sense of whimsy that's part of what the series is; I didn't mind mostly playing as child Noctis or the platforming with the wooden blocks, etc. The environments are impressive and performance felt fine to me as far as frame rate, although the graphics seemed a little gauzy or blurry. I wish it looked sharper.

I think this game will be too much graphically for the PS4 and we'll notice that in the framerate. Is what it is, it's by no means terrible.

 

I swear some people are making this system look like the next Zone of the Enders. Looks incredible. If the boss fight was easily reloadable I'd definitely be on that and trying to hone my understanding of the system. Great to see the potential though.

Finally got around to playing the demo last night and I'm disappointed it did nothing to sell me on the game. It felt generic and amateurish to be blunt as far as demos go. I would have much rather, as a tech demo, the game just drop you on some random part of the world map with maybe a quest or two to complete and let you explore what the game has to offer. Following completely linear maps and small areas that scream FFXIII or Kingdom Hearts was not the way to pull fans back in.

 

I was hoping they had learned from mistakes but the demo seems to only repeat them. I don't care about the framerate or other technical issues: I wanted to be sucked in the way past FF games have and everything felt so empty and wooden like the children's building blocks that inhabit it. I still want to try the game because I feel this was just created to be a tech demo, but they really shot themselves in the foot I feel by putting out an embarrassing example of just how little has changed at SE.

 

Maybe it was about time we had our Final Fantasy.

That's pretty much exactly what Episode Duscae was. So they did do that... but behind a paywall.

Wow. Consider me disgusted.

Yeah. Seems backwards that the demo with very limited appeal and that doesn't capture what the actual game is going to be like is the public demo, and the demo that is a slice of the actual game and would have had way wider appeal is locked behind the purchase of Type-0 HD.

 

They should just release Episode Duscae 2.0 to everyone. I don't think the people who bought Type-0 a year ago would care at this point.

This really irks me. No, not the article but the missed opportunity they had with this demo to blow us all away. Why not instead showcase all these amazing locales? If even as a short video after the demo to get you hyped? It dawned on me just how bad of a disconnect this demo left me with versus a single article not even 500 words long. Those pictures and captions automatically had me interested and excited. Yes, I'm still miffed over a free demo but I think it's justified given this is a game NINE YEARS in development. If I had done nothing but played that demo, my chances of buying the game would be pretty bad. IDK who marketed the demo but they should be fired IMO.

Oh and this should have been in the demo, just saying.

I finally got to play the Platinum Demo and I loved it.  The combat was fun, the game looked purdy, music was great, controls were good.  I daresay, it 'felt' like Final Fantasy should.
