Bought this summer of 2017. Packaging was fine. No cracks or scratches on the disk or case, and played fine on my player.
This is very very beautiful to look at. I'm impressed at how realistic everything looks. I had to rewind several times because I would be distracted by the beauty, thinking about how they simulated, surfaced, lit, modelled the elements in the scene, and not really listening to the dialogue. But as beautiful as it looks, there are some instances where the movement of the characters look strange. I'm not sure why but I think it has to do with the mocap. I don't get this feeling when I'm looking at CG works where the animation movement is all done from scratch (animators setting keys on the rigs themselves) instead of editing data from what the mocap actor did in the suits.
As for story and characters, I didn't play the game so I felt less connection to everything compared to FF7AC for which I did play FF7. Also judging from how FF7AC was, I wasn't expecting an easy-to-understand story from Kingsglaive, and I think I was right.
