The combat in Final Fantasy XVI is fast-paced with exceptionally agile characters. This makes the combat flashy, delivering a satisfying and phenomenal combat experience for the players.

Final Fantasy XVI: Weaknesses
Difficult to survive
Since Clive is the only character you play, it makes it a lot more difficult to survive than the team-based format. In previous Final Fantasy games, a single character’s death was not much of a problem. There were many characters and jobs who kept their squad alive. Since Clive is all alone the penalty for failure is death.
Quite a few plots in the game such as quests and fights seemed way too stretched, which was not really required. The repetitive enemy encounters make a few quests too long, while a few of the boss fights looked too stretched in the game.
