The year 842 would mark the beginning of the end.
In an act of unprovoked aggression, the Militesi Empire invaded the Dominion of Rubrum. Imperial dreadnoughts swarmed the skies, assailing the unsuspecting countryside in the name of the White Tiger. From amidst the flames of the besieged dominion, the Vermilion Bird rose in defiance, her crystal granting magic and mighty eidolons that her disciples might cast out their technologically advanced aggressors.
Just when it seemed as though the day might be won, however, all would soon be lost. Thrust into the tumult of war, the fate of the world and its four crystals now rests on the shoulders of fourteen brave, young warriors.

The only reason I played this game is because I am a longtime FF fan. Otherwise, this port is bad. Stuck at 30fps, terrible camera. The gameplay elements are the only redeeming feature with battles in missions happening in real-time rather than encounters. The game has around 14 playable characters, yet only 2-3 of them actually get character development, most of the others are just placeholders. Not a bad game, but not a very good one either.
Final Fantasy Type-0 HD is a remastered version of the original game for the PSP. Many textures in the game are because of that outdated and don't match the better looking part of the games ( for example the main characters). The gameplay is something new and is not comparable with the gameplay of other Final Fantasy titles. There are 13 playable characters which all have different weapons (spear, bow, sword and more) and are played different. You assign every character 4 skills, 3 are attacks and the 4th is a help skill which heals or protects you. Combat takes place in real time which is great. You control one character directly and two other pupils of class zero are battling with you. If you attack enemies with good timing you will do more damage to them or even one-hit them. The story is about a war between 4 different countries where each one owns a magical crystal which gives people magical powers to protect themselves. Because of the war theme it's darker than other Final Fantasy games. You will see several people dying, blood and corpses, which is very unusual for a Final Fantasy. In my opinion Final Fantasy Type-0 is a great game which suffers a bit from being a PSP game and a weaker story than other games of this franchise. I preordered it for about 17? and was worth it for me.
I bought this game knowing it was different than a typical Final Fantasy game, but wow, this game is truly horrible. I wanted to play this on PSP when it first came out, but I don't speak Japanese and the game was never localized. When I saw it on PC, I had to buy it. I should have passed. Not only does this game have way too many characters (at least a dozen), none of them are fleshed out in the slightest. The game is over in 20 hours, but I honestly couldn't tell you the difference between any of the characters, nor could I explain the muddled and incoherent plot. The world map is pathetic. It is massive and empty with no exploration at all other than massively spaced out towns that are smaller than anything, and a random cave here and there. The side content is more or less just go here and get into tons of random encounters until you get in the one that allows you to kill a creature you are hunting, then repeat until you can get enough fights against it to kill it X times. Everything in the game is on a time limit for your first playthrough so it's impossible to do everything, nor will you want to come back to anyway after you beat the game, assuming you can stomach it that long. There's an unbelievably well hidden airship in the game, but you will never know about it since the game doesn't tell you about it. I only happened to find it by accident by accepting an optional random quest near the end of the game. Upon getting it, it's useless as it controls poor and it's extremely difficult to land where you want it to. That doesn't even take into consideration the fact this game has no reason to explore anything. The difficulty is all over the place. Some levels are way too easy. Then you fight a boss that you lose to and the story continues anyway. The final boss requires you to die with each character as he 1 hit kills you every time you damage him. And let's not forget the game breaking glitch (at least I hope it wasn't intended). The game has an arena in the main town and a Special Trainer. Talk to the trainer with the character you want to level up. The game will save and quit to the main menu. Go to your desktop and change your clock by 24 hours. Reload you save game, and you characters gains 1-5 levels. Repeat as necessary and you can max out a character in like 30 minutes. Seriously? Don't buy this game. Just don't.
Final Fantasy Type-0 tells the story of a world ravaged by war. In this universe, four countries were given the charge of a sacred crystal to protect, each one of the crystal grants special powers and gifts to its people. In one region, it's all about technology. In another one, people are connected to dragons. The third region is populated by very strong persons while the last one is the homeland of magicians. But one day, the Militesi Empire launched an attack on the Rubrum Kingdom. Their goal was to obtain the control of Rubrum's Crystal. However, the day was saved by Class Zero, a group of students from the Magic Academy of Rubrum. There are students of war, prepared to fight to their death. Final Fantasy Type-0 is probably one of the darkest Final Fantasy game ever made. It's gory. It's somber. You will advance through streets paved with the corpses of the Empire's victims (literally). You will witness events of great violence and sadness. This is a very serious story. To balance this setting, Class Zero is a funny bunch of heroes. They are your typical characters with recognizables clichés and features but they are likable. Unfortunately, the story is pretty short and lacks closure... There are a lot of questions unanswered down the line and the last part of the campaign just seems rushed. The gameplay is solid. It's real time combat in all its glory. However understanding the game mechanics is mandatory to progress in the story. You have to be fast and must play efficiently using the weakness system (With good timing you can almost one-hit-KO anything). It's a bit hard too but very satisfying However the subquests are not that interesting to play and the game tries to much too push you into coop multiplayer. Also the game system is too simplistic. You can't really customize your thirteen characters you just give them the best equipment and skills. Also, the Magic upgrade system is tedious to use. The visuals are great for a former PSP game. Square Enix made a good remaking all the assets and adding shaders. Final Fantasy Type-0 could have been a much much better game.
