THE MISSIONS

The missions of the first part of the story are designed to train you with the flow of the open world; how to get money, where to spend the money, and how to get better after a tough day. Most importantly, you will learn how to fight. Despite the Noctis abilities and the pace of the game, Final Fantasy 15 is demanding. There is a lot to manage in the combat, but you will have direct control over Prince Noctis, once you fully understand the extent of your abilities and the game's demanding pace. You can pause the game to re-equip the characters right in the battlefield, and combat is otherwise a non-stop and you must rely on the AI to ensure your associates have your back in the game.

DIRECT COMMANDS

You can issue direct commands only when there is enough damage, and the meter is filled up. Whenever you press and hold down a button, Noctis can deliver a combo attack until an enemy interrupts him. If you are a fast player, you can press another button to handle an incoming attack from the enemy and also continue your assault. You can swap between four different weapons, you can launch mid-combo or cast magic, and you can summon Astral on rare occasions to the battlefield to wipe out enemies.

ASTRALS, MAGIC, AND SPELLS

Astrals give support to the Noctis throughout the story. They are powerful, and they can be summoned in a time of need. Astrals offer some of the most exciting moments in the game when summoned, they soar above the battlefield and unleash incredible displays of power. Astrals are only seen when they are summoned. You can only acquire four Astrals, and there is no guarantee that an Astral will appear whenever you summon it. Apart from the Astrals, you can also rely on magic to strike out tough enemies. Spells can be created from the elemental springs found in the dungeons, and you can combine these elements with other items for extra status effects and increased potency. During this tradeoff, you will have to sacrifice valuable commodities in the process and don’t forget that the spells are consumables, and they are not permanent abilities.
