Critic Reviews for Final Fantasy XIV: Dad of Light Season 1

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (0)

Dad of Light has a strange premise, one that could have easily led to a throwaway piece of product placement-fueled television. Instead, it tackles both parenting and the relationships we create through games with a rare degree of empathy and respect

Oct 25, 2017 | Full Review…

Look past that awkward name it's been graced with, because Dad of Light is short, sweet and a total joy to watch.

Oct 25, 2017 | Full Review…

As long as you're not expecting a grand, ambitious extension of the Final Fantasy XIV universe, Dad of Light is just charming enough to warrant a binge.

Oct 25, 2017 | Rating: 6.8/10 | Full Review…

Marketing messages never went down so sweetly as they do in this genuine oddity, a Japanese-language mashup of family-love drama and role-playing game quest.

Oct 4, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Small, fluffy and special - like a perfect snowflake - this comedy comes from a place of love and little judgment.

Sep 22, 2017 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

Final Fantasy XIV: Dad of Light is refreshingly different: A TV series that understands that video games can actually be a net positive on a person's life.

Audience Reviews for Final Fantasy XIV: Dad of Light: Season 1

  • Jan 30, 2020
    Una gran sorpresa, pensé que al ser una historia con el titulo de un video juego iba a ser un desastre, pero es una serie con una historia muy dulce de amor de un padre e un hijo inter actuando por el mundo de Final Fantasy, a veces las personalidades de los personajes pueden dar vergüenza ajena, pero en general tanto la actuación, dirección, historia, todo funciona de forma conjunta y correctamente; por ultimo las partes donde sale el juego en pantalla solo termina siendo otro bonus y de hecho por momentos llegan a ser la parte que mas disfrute.
