All over
It's quite limited -- "closed beta" == "demo" -- but it is stupidly fun. Some initial thoughts:

- The combat feels more refined. MP actually means something with magic no longer being these spherical grenades. Cure is tied to this as well - hopefully this means no item spam in the final version.
- I weirdly think the combat feels better. The warp-point mechanic to restore MP is nerfed a bit. Curious how dodging is going to work -- seems like there's more a premium on countering.
- The character creation beats the hell out of Fallout 4.
- The enemy AI seems a bit wonky. There a Ronin that wrecked my crew the first time, but second time around, he was little more than a "hold circle and attack" enemy.
- If this is the period when Noctis is taking his nap, how much story are we going to see?
- I'm curious how SE will handle the "open world" part. Will it be like an MMO where we can pick up missions and fight all over the map, or is it going to be combat in a walled-off field? Will there be additional areas?
- Obviously given the nature of this demo -- or "closed beta" -- there were limited missions with the barest of pretenses. But these escort missions felt off. First off, why am I fighting off Sabertusks for Cindy's truck when she's the one who put goddamn monster truck wheels on the Regalia? Secondly, why am I fighting a bunch of those giraffe type enemies? They were just minding their own business -- honking the horn wouldn't do?

So far, it's promising. But I'm hoping SE's holding their cards close to their vest WRT features.

i read in a interview that they're planning to add your comrades character to the single-player mode at some time, i think we have a pretty good chance to see some of the gameplay changes carried to the single-player mode as well.

site text mentioned the full version will have missions with story (with older cindy and iris perhaps? tho cor didnt seem older in the beta), nice to know quests won't be mindless fights only.

considering how much fun i had with Noctis vs friends duels, i think it would be a great idea if they eventually added a PvP mode.
