Chocobo GP Reviews: Score on Metacritic Ahead of Release

Chocobo GP

Chocobo GP is the latest Square Enix release in the Final Fantasy franchise, but what are the critics saying about the new game?

Whilst the Final Fantasy spin-off title is aimed at grabbing an audience beyond that of JRPG titles, the core of FF fans could be massively important to the success of the new kart racer.

With that in mind, it’s worth knowing what the critical reception is for the title ahead of it being officially released on the Nintendo Switch to see how it may fare amongst the Nintendo player base.

Here’s everything you need to know about the critical reception and score on Metacritic for Chocobo GP as of Tuesday 8th March 2022.

Chocobo GP Metacritic

As of writing (Tuesday 8th March 2022), Chocobo GP currently sits on Metacritic with a score of 65.

Currently, the top rating for the game is 90 on Metacritic, which was awarded by Digitally Downloaded

The site noted: “It’s hard to stay mad at Chocobo GP, though, even when you’re hit with what feels like an endless barrage of magic. The game’s just too bright and cheerful. 

“Obviously, your mileage is going to depend on whether you’re a fan of Chocobo. Not just Final Fantasy, but also this specific series of cute mascot characters. If you are, though, you couldn’t ask for a more loving treatment.”

The current lowest score for the game comes courtesy of Screen Rant, who lambasted the new title with a score of 30.

They noted: “As it stands, the game needs work, as the current product just isn’t fun. The spells and abilities need to be toned down and the tracks need redoing or replacing. 

“There is no shortage of kart racers on the market, especially on Nintendo Switch, and there are much better alternatives available right now than Chocobo GP in its current state.”

Considering the lukewarm reception to the game overall and the competition on the Nintendo Switch in terms of Mario Kart, it will be interesting to see how it sells amongst the Final Fantasy hardcore fanbase and causal players on the Nintendo console.
