KINGSGLAIVE: FINAL FANTASY XV

GTAHater
DO ANY OF YOU HAVE ANY MEMORY OF 2001 RAZZIE QUARTERFINALIST “FINAL FANTASY: THE SPIRITS WITHIN”? IT BANKRUPTED ONE OF SQUARE’S COMPUTER ANIMATION BRANCHES, LEFT ANOTHER SCAR ON ALEC BALDWIN’S CAREER, AND WAS USED FOR THE BETTER PART OF THE 00-AGENTS’ DECADE AS A COLLEGE CLASS EXAMPLE OF WHAT <NOT> TO DO. IT WAS AROUND THE SAME TIME AS FINAL FANTASY X, THE LAST TIME A MAIN SERIES FINAL FANTASY GAME WAS ANY MORE ACCEPTED BY GAMERS THAN “XIV: A REALM REBORN”. WITH 4 1/3 MONTHS TO GO UNTIL FINAL FANTASY XV, THE “FABULA NOVA CRYSTALLIS” SUBSERIES GETS THE NEXT CGI FILM IN THE FRANCHISE.

KINGSGLAIVE: FINAL FANTASY XV HAS BEEN FORGIVEN BY A FEW CRITICS BECAUSE THE CGI IS BETTER THAN THIS WEEK’S OTHER RAZZIE COMPETITOR, THE BEN-HUR REMAKE, BUT EVERYTHING ELSE IS FAR WORSE! AND THIS IS COMING FROM THE SAME TEAM THAT CREATED FINAL FANTASY VII: ADVENT CHILDREN (FROM WHICH CLOUD STRIFE’S GEOSTIGMA SCARS WERE CARRIED OVER INTO SMASH BROS 4).

FEATURING AARON PAUL (NEED FOR SPEED) AND SEAN BEAN (SILENT HILL: REVELATION 3D), CRITICS HAVE DISMISSED KINGSGLAIVE AS A GLORIFIED FEATURE-LENGTH CUTSCENE WITH NO REASON FOR THE FEW PEOPLE WHO’LL SEE IT TO REMEMBER THE CHARACTERS. WITH A SCATTERBRAINED STORYLINE UNWORTHY OF PLAYING IN ANY THEATRES, EVEN THE 3 OR 4 ACROSS AMERICA THAT’LL SCREEN IT, NOBODY OUTSIDE THE DEEPEST DEPTHS OF THE FINAL FANTASY SERIES’ FANBASE WILL APPRECIATE IT WHEN CRITICS CALL IT THIS YEAR’S UMPTEENTH FILM THAT TRIED TO DO WHAT THE LORD OF THE RINGS DID SO MUCH BETTER LAST DECADE. EVEN A DEVOTION TO THIS ONCE-GREAT SERIES OF GAMES PROBABLY ISN’T ENOUGH TO UNDERSTAND ANY DETAILS OF THE PLOT OR SCRIPT.

CAN THIS GET ANY FURTHER IN THE RAZZIE RACE THAN “THE SPIRITS WITHIN” MANAGED A DECADE AND A HALF AGO? SLICE THROUGH KINGSGLAIVE: FINAL FANTASY XV BELOW!
