the ultimate of the ultimate! I played the beta for several hours and I was so surprised that the beta told me that it was over right up to last beta match I played! I didnt expect to play for the full length of the beta. was just expecting to play it like 1 hour, but played over 4 hours of it and it has ultimate potential and definitely the #1 pick for ultimate fighting game of 2018! Dissidia deserves its own ongoing series on PS4 and PS5. I always knew the series would have greater quality on console and I am right. while Duodecim has more depth in areas, the overall fighting in NT raises the standards with more accessibility, yet new depth that the classic Dissidia games don't have, especially with the revolutionary 3 vs 3 foundation (yes games like Xenoverse have 3 vs 3, but Dissidia NT actually has more technical skill based depth and team synergies instead of spamming). it also has 1 vs 1, but NT proves that Dissidia style combat is better with a 3 vs 3 format, plus it adds to the nostalgia from FF games that have a 3 member party in fights.
even the single player rush mode is addicting. even though there's no open overworld like Duodecim has, the Dissidia games were always weak in storytelling (some people even hate Terra's personality compared to how she was in FFVI. So better for Dissidia to focus on the fighting than storytelling, cause even the fans torn apart the plot of the PSP games and realized how dumb it was.)
as Street Fighter II has proven, a fighting game doesnt need a story or center on story to have a great game thats played over the generations. stories in fighting games are just an afterthought and the games really are evaluated on their gameplay, selection and gameplay related content (and we seen how Star Wars Battlefront 2 sacrificed a chunk of its budget for AAA story campaign production values, and see how that went. even Battlefront 1, which didnt have story, was better received).
well I can type all day about how great Dissidia NT's fighting system and 3v3 format is, though fighting fans can see the proof in the pudding, Dissidia NT is shaping up to a masterpiece, and the only area where it may be lacking, is dependant on which characters, how many, and how soon they will be added to the core game, cause we know there's still a lot of missing favorites, including the ones in Duodecim, so NT has a lot of expectations to deal with as well as beyond that. it is said they plan at least 50 characters for the game, perhaps they could surpass expectations in the total roster selection and overall quality picks for various tastes.
and yes Dissidia FF NT is a fighting game, a much greater fighting game than Power Stone games, SSB games, NSUNS series, and a lot of other fighting games combined!! sorry if that offends someone, but hey, OPINIONS!!
so while you think I'm insane, at least the mainstream FF fans and open minded Dissidia fans are loving it, so Dissidia Final Fantasy NT's qualities gotta be acknowledged.
and don't dare bring up shilling comments, cause you know I could stay quiet about my opinion and praise about it, and even in a scenario where if I happened to hate it,
Dissidia FF NT is STILL gonna sell like hotcakes, so there!!
