    Incredible improvement from v1.0

    Rated on August 27, 2013 by ViltsuH1

    I tried the beta when FFXIV first launched back in 2010. The game was terrible. No introduction, no tutorial. I didn't know where to go or what to do. FFXIV has now been completely reborn into a ne...

    Over 10 Hours in and I cant get enough! This is what the original FF14 should have been!

    Honestly i feel they did a great job! Best way to put it Final Fantasy 12 as an MMO. Also a story driven MMO which is what I like, it stays true to what the FF games are. Plus just like FF there are s...

    Failed games don't usually get second chances, this one did and it made up for all of its predecessor's flaws and more.

    I have never played the first version of Final Fantasy XIV (commonly referred to as FFXIV 1.0). Mainly because, like many others, I have read the overwhelmingly negative reviews and articles about the...

    Unfortunately, this game is a grind. A hardcore grind. Waiting for spawns. Grind grind grind. Slow leveling.

    Grind grind grind grind grind. Kill X monster, turn in. Kill Y monster. Turn in. Sit through slowly animated and boring anime cutscene. Grind grind grind.... Spellcasting is so slow that it dulls down...

    For a game that went to the depths of MMO hell and danced its way out it does pretty well for itself.

    Nothing truly innovative but it's a blast to play even still. The difficulty seems just right (could be upped just a tad IMO) especially as you begin to hit the dungeons. The boss fights are enter...

    First MMO to capture my attention span longer then a day! Great game, Easy Partying, Fun, Challenging, Story Driven.

    I pre-ordered this game out of curiosity, since the first version failed a big time. First impression was good. Character design are very Jrpg style with nice animation. Cut-scenes have nice (multi-...

    Fresh air into a genre that is dieing.

    Rated on August 28, 2013 by the_real_adnan

    MMO's genre has been dieing lately but ARR does a lot of things to help it out. ARR has tons of content, a very vivid and new type of class system, deep crafting professions like no mmo has had before...

    Rated on August 29, 2013 by iiimperial

    This is a great game that has undergone great improvements from the first release. FFXIV ARR is totally different from V1.0 (First release). Play it first before you judge the game if you have tried o...
