    A must try game. Has everything I want as a gamer.

    I originally started playing FFXIV when the original came out. It wasn't until the updates came (when preparing for 2.0) that the game started to show potential. Since then, the game has taken a turn for the better (in m... Read Full Review

    FF XIV

    As a huge fan of fantasy RPGs and having never played an MMO, I thought it was amazing. The graphics were beautiful. The world is large and fun to simply explore (each area having its own plants and creatures to match th... Read Full Review

    It's a good game that is fun to play during the first 30 day free trial period, but good luck playing beyond that. If you try registering for a subscription beyond the first 30 days, you get an error which SE is not at... Read Full Review

    I was very impressed with FFXIV:ARR. Very solid experience, huge improvement over the original.

    ARR Has been a very pleasant surprise for me. I have played v1.0 and compared to that, the improvements have been massive. In FFXI (preToAU/abyssea/ect) and 1.0, it seemed leveling was a real grind. In ARR, the leveling ... Read Full Review

    Needs tweaking, but interesting

    The Good: As a jack of all trades and master of none, I often have multiple characters in MMO's / hack and slash games. To me, the most interesting and unique aspect of FFXIV ARR is how it ties me to just one charact... Read Full Review

    It's 2.0, but what does that really mean?

    I would like to start off by saying I have never played FFXIV 1.0. It had such poor reviews I just skipped it completely. Therefore, this review is based on my personal experience since the release of "2.0". So it's ... Read Full Review

    An amazing looking game but the rest of the game for the most part is been here done that.

    The one thing AAR has going for it is looks. The graphics and effects are some of the best. The different environments are really well done, from the forest to the desert with their waves of heat distorting your vision. ... Read Full Review

    Realm reborn is a wonderful game. It does a good job at immersing you and drawing you into the world. Try it out!

    Realm reborn is a wonderful game. It does a good job at immersing you and drawing you into the world. You really need to play the game past level 10, where the basics end and the story picks up. Much of the fun in... Read Full Review
