    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

    So, after being in all phases of the BETA, and dishing out money for the collectors edition of this game. I pretty much paid 50-60 bucks for a game I haven't been able to play for the last three days straight because ... Read Full Review

    The best in the FF series in quite a while.

    I was hesitant to get ARR, as I have been severely disappointed in the Final Fantasy series since X and X-2. However, I went ahead and signed up for the Beta, and have been going over since. Visually, everything look... Read Full Review

    Addictive game, but SE needs to fix the server problems

    I played Final Fantasy XI for awhile, and I have to admit that Final Fantasy XIV's gameplay pace is a lot quicker than that of XI's. I was glad to finally see a few new ways of traveling to speed up the gameplay experien... Read Full Review

    Just a launch First Impression review. Opinions could change as the game gets going.

    MMOs have never been my thing. I love RPGs but I've never been into the whole paying monthly and the very standard quest structure. To me, MMOs are nothing more than sidequests turned into a game, all you do is a normal ... Read Full Review
