    The game is worth every penny. You will get hooked right from the start, the graphics are good although there aren't any fmv's. The gameplay is much diffrent then other final fantasy's but that's a go...

    Wow, what a difference going from PC to PS2. I figured the PS2 version would have been better in a lot of ways, being able to play on a much larger screen, having dual shock support, and having true 5...

    Great Pure RPG

    Ok, although this game got not great reviews, it still is a lot of fun. Granted it is expensive to play, especially to buy a netplay keyboard or similar, as well as the monthly fee and the higher pric...

    Now, i haven't played the PC version of this game, so im not going to complain about some of the PS2 version's drawbacks compared to its PC cousin. As far as massive online RPG's go, I haven't seen a...

    I was expecting a lot more out of this game. I basically bought the game for the HDD, and I was actually somewhat looking forward to checking it out because I was a big fan of FF 10. They are nowhere ...

    The series gets better than ever.

    Rated on April 06, 2005 by Ozzy19178

    Ever since Final Fantasy started way back, everyone who has played it knows that it is one of the best RPG's there is. Several years later Final Fantasy is still one of the most renounced games in all...

    While not perfect by any means, FFXI is an addictive game with a solid framework and a strong community.

    Final Fantasy XI was a good attempt at an online Final Fantasy. In the week that I was able to play it (thanks, Sony, for the crappy HDD), I enjoyed it somewhat. First of all, the price is somewhat...
