When Square Enix announced the Final Fantasy XV launch date (September 30), they also dropped another mini-bomb: A new playable demo.
Dubbed the Platinum Demo, this one gave gamers a chance to play as young Noctis, when he explored a fantastical yet dangerous dreamworld. We could turn into a car, collect little yellow crystals, and even battle a fearsome boss.
And while many remarked the disappointing frame rate (something director Hajime Tabata says they're working to fix right now ), it appears most very much enjoyed the new sample. The majority of our readers said the demo was "awesome" and that they can't wait for the game to show up this fall. My take is that it was one of the most technically disappointing games I've played in years and it was 95 percent action and 5 percent role-playing but hey, if it sells, it sells. And as Square Enix has to consider offering more Ultimate Editions , it's clear that many are excited.
