    I can't stop playing this game.

    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 good thing and the sto... Read Full Review

    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 5.1 Dolby Digital. Wo... Read Full Review

    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 price for the PS2 versio... Read Full Review

    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 any other that can ma... Read Full Review

    The series gets better than ever.

    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 of gaming history a... Read Full Review

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

    It's almost unfair, really. A massively-multiplayer role-playing game isn't all that exciting in gameplay execution, it hasn't got much in the way of story, and the people who play it determine a majority of the experien... Read Full Review

    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 steep. You must spe... Read Full Review
