The beginning loading screen discussed very similar Final Fantasy tropes: gods, war, etc..
Fighting was friggin awesome though.
You fight with a button layout similar to Kingdom Hearts having you questioning the branding. On Xbox One, X was to dodge, y to warp among others. Warping makes the gravity of fights similar to that of an Uncharted game. The Titan boss you get to fight is colossal and skyscaperish.
The music was excellent and the cutscenes show a great upgrade to the franchise.
