I really enjoyed Chapters 1-8 the game had lots to do, the missions are fun, the combat is something that I can really get into. Fighting classic monsters like the Malboro in real time is great. Up to that point the story was really good and interesting and I really wanted to know what was going to happen.

Then from Chapter 9 onwards from the summoning of Levi everything seems so rushed. Things happen at such a fast pace sometimes with little to explanation, characters vanish never to be seen again. I only found out that the empire had killed Shiva, Ifrit and Bahamut from the loading screen. Which is a pretty big story point since I was expecting the collect them myself. The second half feels like such mess to me and that's a real shame. It feels like another MGSV to me though I hear they will add more story with upcoming patches though that will mean playing through the whole game again.

I can't remember feeling this disappointed in a FF game for along time (only the second half though). I can only imagine the mess the development must have been over 10 years if this is the best they can come up with after all that time.
