Final Fantasy XV is ambitious in ways most games never try.
Final Fantasy XV is a complicated game with plenty of things to keep you busy. Though fans have come to expect a new exciting take on bombs, behemoths, and chocobos in every game, the game blends themes together in a way that’s new to the franchise. Final Fantasy XV, however, also fits together differently than any game in the franchise, and that’s exciting in itself. This is a game that merges the decade of progress established by its contemporaries with the series’ iconic blend of storytelling, art, and music.
Ten years and various staff members after its initial announcement, Final Fantasy XV (once Final Fantasy XIII Versus) finally looks set to see release with its action-based combat.It’s a powerful tale filled with legitimate pathos for its characters, and feels like an essential part of the greater whole: something no Final Fantasy fan should miss. If you’re enough of a Final Fantasy fan that you’ve seen the movie Kingsglaive or the Brotherhood anime, then you’ll be in good shape to follow the story of Final Fantasy XV If not, then you’ll be at something of a disadvantage.
Final Fantasy XV came out on consoles almost a year ago now, and the PC version should be coming along in the first quarter of 2018. There is, also, a new mobile game: Final Fantasy XV Pocket Edition.
It’s by far and away the most experimental a single-player Final Fantasy game feature has ever been, and from what we’ve seen it’s actually looking pretty good. Does the much-vaunted real-time combat system, a significant change from Final Fantasy ‘s iconic turn-based systems of the past, make the cut? Overall, Final Fantasy XV ‘s combat feels like it just might have the potential to be smooth and effortless… if you manage your camera angles, which are like the combat system’s second, hidden system.With fast-paced action, a gripping story, and some truly startling revelations that reshape perceptions of the overall story, Episode Ignis is a must-play for FFXV fans.
With Final Fantasy XV handed me a puzzle I desperately wanted to put together and cherish like I have other Final Fantasy titles. Final Fantasy XV feels like a Final Fantasy meant for this time and age. The expansion places players in the boots of remaining members of the Kingsglaive elite force, as they investigate on something I won’t say because it would be a spoiler related to the main game. Let’s just say that Final Fantasy 15 is phenomenal, in terms of the open world environment and the engaging storyline it provides. Developed by the team behind the Kingdom Hearts series, it was intended to be a darker entry in the Final Fantasy series than allowed in the main series.It also feels incredibly relevant for the future: much here feels like a test for the future, and I wouldn’t be surprised at all to see Final Fantasy 16 end up being at least little like a Destiny, Division or Borderlands affair with an epic story set to the backdrop of drop-in, drop-out multiplayer. In some ways it’s a more straightforward system than in previous Final Fantasy games. Final Fantasy XV is a beautiful game.
Final Fantasy XV’s sound design is one of the game’s few untarnished elements of brilliance. Those of you who already own a copy of Square Enix’s globetrotting juggernaut can pick up all of the Royal Edition content separately for $19.99.
