Final Fantasy games have made their way into our hearts and minds with their awesome game mechanics along with the thorough character backstory, but other aspects that have made Final Fantasy games a winner is their awesome ability to keep you on the edge of your seat with story mode or campaign as it is also known.
I’ve started playing Final Fantasy XV recently and I have to say there is a lot to like about the game. For example, Prince Noctis and his guardsmen. Each from different backgrounds and are with Noctis for one reason, to keep him safe from all threats foreign and domestic so he can get to his girl, the very hot Lunafreya Nox Fleuret.
I have to admit that I thought the Final Fantasy XV walkthrough was going to be complicated, but as I’ve been playing I’ve quickly discovered that it is not. I say for that many reasons but my top two are that one, you are tasked with going to a very specific place and handling business then leaving; it’s so simple.
Second, some aspects of the game don’t seem that important at the moment like trying to get the Ultima Blade or even trying to stomp the toughest mark via hunt.
In my post I’ll cover my impression of the walkthrough not to mention Noctis and Co along with just how simple the walkthrough appears to be. Lastly, there’ll be a comment or two on the “sidetracking” aspect.
My impression of the game
Now, I have the Final Fantasy XV Royal Edition and my impression of the game is that it is awesome. I’ve heard so many complaints about the game, the story, the weapons, the every little pitiful details about what the game could’ve done better. This is what makes a video game expert, you don’t listen to everyone else; you form your own judgments.
I’ve grown to love this game so much, it was only recently that I started playing the game seriously but I can tell you that as I’ve been progressing, I’ve come to sense how simple the Final Fantasy XV walkthrough is and I mean the one in-game.
Already, I’m on Chapter 3 and I’m having a great time learning all about the game including the Royal Arms to which I have two at present; I’m dying to get my hands on the other 11. The game sort of reminds me of Phantasy Star 4 where you have four consistent characters whose lives change over the course of the game and you just have to love the game for that; I do.
The simplicity of the walkthrough
When I talk about the “simplicity” of the walkthrough, I’m talking more along the lines of getting from point A to B with MINIMAL headache or significant grind. Take Chapter 1 for example, you’re making your way from one place to another and yes, there are sidequests but those same sidequests are available in Chapter 2 so its not like you’re missing anything.
The bigger aspect about the Final Fantasy XV walkthrough is that doing some of the sidequests or even the extra stuff isn’t really a requirement unless you want to make it one (which you should) but just going straight thru Final Fantasy XV without exploring is a choice you should NOT make.
Since I started playing this game, the walkthrough has been pretty straightforward which I’ve come to love because many of the past Final Fantasy games has you going in all kinds of different directions like in Final Fantasy 3/6 where your team split up and head to different locales in a lands far away after your first run in with Kefka.
Exploring Noctis & Co
Easily, Noctis is the most powerful monarch in the history of Final Fantasy and this is made clear by his Royal Arms & Armiger powers which he uses extensively. Noctis is an awesome leader and lead character, he never seems too busy to help people out. Noctis seems very straightforward in accomplishing his goals which is good.
Glaudiolus, Noctis’ right hand and his shield; Glaudiolus is the muscle and at times I don’t care for how he gets pissy with Noct when you’re switching weapons. However, the guy’s a tank on the field; I started switching abilities for Glaudiolus and found he’s powerful.
Ignis or Iggy as he’s known is the cook and brains of the group, I love being able to find different camps and eat at different restaurants in town. Simply, Ignis can make the same things at camp which is great because you can take full advantage of a good meal with friends; I’m always waiting for him to take out his recipe book or say “I just came up with another recipe”.
Prompto, Prompto is the whiner of the group but he’s awesome with a firearm; I get to a point sometimes where I want to kick him out of the car on my way to a locale but I know the game frowns on that. Prompto is an ace with a camera, I’ve grown to pay little attention to his photographs at present but he did have me laughing when he said “hashtag sorry not sorry”.
Now, I’m not going to lie, there has been some sidetracking on my end but I have to say that it has been worth it especialy running around for that pompous ass Dino the reporter. However, I am going to say that I had a bit of a hard time trying get Deadeye near the end of the fight when I fought him but I got him which now I am able to ride the chocobos; a sidetrack worth the “follow” as it were.
I just got done doing some frog hunting for a Sania Yeagre where I had to find 5 red frogs and let me tell you, it was the most annoying sidequest I’ve ever done. Also, I want to go on record as saying the payoff didn’t seem as worth the time or effort, so it can be said that not all sidetracking is really worth the time investment but I learned something all the same.
The Final Fantasy XV walkthrough is a seemingly straightforward one not to mention the game makes getting from Point A to B a non-hardship, the impression I got of the game is that it is a great buy with a lot to offer gamers. As you sidetrack and do other things along with getting to know Noctis’ crew and him, you’ll come to appreciate the personality of the characters.
If you have any questions about my post or anything in it then please feel free to send me a message and I’ll get back to you. Thank you and Happy gaming.
