TP was overrated and deserved less

Yeah people should have been flipping out that it wasn't lower.
If enough people think that, the game won't end up overrated but underrated.

I'm just rolling @ confirmation bias posts for it not reviewing better. So many still in disbelief that FF is yet again failing to put out a product that will be mentioned alongside the best games of the gen.

It's currently at an 88 with 94% of critics recommending it. How much better do you guys want it to review? Seems pretty great to me.

Some Final Fantasy Metacritic scores for comparison:

FFVII: 92
FFXII: 92
FFXIII: 83
FFXV: 81
FFVIIR: 87

Critics are often kinda easy on the lower tier FF entries for some reason.

with the way the year is going this will be enough for it to be in the running for GotY anyways. last of us was delayed indefinitely, who knows if cyberpunk will even come out this year..RE3 ended up being somewhat disapointing, i think the strongest competition so far is Doom eternal, assuming Persona 5 Royal is not qualifiable due to being originally a 2017 game.

Cold Steel IV is out this year, so won't even be the best JRPG!

Fingers crossed in Tales of Arise.

I'm definitely going to give that a shot, even with how much I hated it originally!

Considering I gave FFXII another shot a month ago and hated it even more than when it came out, I am not holding my breath. That type of combat just isn't for me!

The combat is completely different in the remake, though.

Surprised XV is that high

It was absolute dogshit of a game.

87 for Remake is pretty good. Very rarely do JRPG's score 90+. I think only 3 in the last 10 years and that doesn't include PErsona 4 Golden

Persona 5/5R
DQXI
Xenoblade 1

Thats about 3 JRPG's from about 100 released over the past 10 years.

Fingers crossed in Tales of Arise.

The best JRPG rating wise came out last week and it won't be beaten in the next 10 years probably.

Royal is a beefed up full price rerelease in the same generation of consoles on the same platform. I have no respect for it.

The critics sure didn't give any leeway when reviewing third/Ultra versions of previous Pokmon games, that's for sure.

I mean I've made 7 accounts in 17 years.

Though like 4 of those were within the last 2.

I don't know when I insisted that to begin with, though.

FFXIII: 83
FFXV: 81
FFVIIR: 87

Critics are often kinda easy on the lower tier FF entries for some reason.

This isnt the full context though. The PC rerelease of XIII got a 65 so it shows changing standards. Launch XIV got a 49, and ARR got an 83. FFVIIR has done extremely well by recent standards of the series.

Wasn't the PC version of FFXIII a bit of a mess or am I misremembering another game? I know XIV was a shambles on release.

It was not a good port, just really barebones for a PC port in terms of options and so on if I remember correctly. As far as I can tell most of the reviews were saying that even if the port was great, it wasn't an especially good game.
