Final Fantasy XV —
Final Fantasy XV is a great but confusing game. It’s detailed, but undetailed. The design is great, but the story just makes absolutely no sense at all. At the end, Prince Noctis dies and Princess Lunafreya is already dead but they somehow get married? And Prince Noctis’s father died a looooooong time ago, at the beginning of the game, but somehow he’s talking and saying how proud he is of Noctis for dying? And then, there’s a cutscene in the credits where Noctis is camping out by the fire after he died and he’s talking to his friends who are alive and saying how being there is too much for him. But then.. HE DIED. He was turned to dust and scattered. And then, after the credits are over, Noctis is talking to a dog and then he goes back in time to the beginning of the game? WHAT was Square Enix THINKING?
Watch this playthrough and you’ll see what I mean. Oh, and this game is CRAZY hard to beat. Gladiolus, Ignis and Prompto even DIE trying. Although, APPARENTLY they come back to life. See, this is what I’m talking about!
So, how this works is, Noctis would put on the ring, call the Kings of Old, and sacrifice himself after he killed a villain named Ardyn Izunia. Ardyn was a really bad final boss and he’s reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeally hard to beat. And I mean reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeally. So, watch out for him when nearing the end of FFXV, or you’ll be unprepared for his unbeatable evil magics.
You beat the game. Yay. Now you have to speak to Time Dog Umbra and go back in time. Yay. I’m being so sarcastic right now. Yay. After all the credits and cutscenes, the game restarts, but not where you’d think. After everyone dies and undies, you see Umbra the Time Dog, just sitting there in front of you with a book in his mouth (not shown). You take the book, read the last written page, and talk to Umbra. Then, you go back in time. You meaning Noctis, who is played by the player most of the time.
That’s all from me, but until next time, this has been my report/review on:
