    Good concept, extremely bad design

    Only good thing about this game is the classless design, but the game is let down by to many disappointments. Originally I bought this game upon release, Collectors Edition and all that, played aro...

    Revived

    Rated on June 26, 2012 by Crimson_Erskine

    As someone who played it after launch and picked it up after its overhaul, I can say the game is worth playing. You have to really be impressed with a company that accepts fault and suspends bill...

    Repackaged Final Fantasy XI, but with fewer jobs and penalizes the player if they play too long. You have been warned!

    The major problems with this game need to be addressed first before any positive reviews can ever be done, that being said only fanbois will give this game 8-10 point rating, which it clearly does not...

    Major disappointment. Not worth investing any time into. No mana regen, no auction houses, no weapon/armor vendors.

    Major disappointment. I spent $600 upgrading my video card and power supply solely for FF14. After playing for a few days, I abandoned my steak in the game and refuse to invest anymore time into it. ...

    Most disappointing game of 2010. Avoid.

    Rated on September 23, 2010 by Tripwolf

    Let me start off by saying that I'm a huge fan of the Final Fantasy series. FFV-X are some of the best gaming experiences a person can have (although time has done a number on some of the earlier game...

    The good: It's like FFXI!<br /> The Bad: It's like FFXI...<br /> Not for everybody, but the right crowd will appreciat

    Rated on September 23, 2010 by Nayus_Dante

    Some day, I hope to write a full review of this game, but here are my launch impressions. The Good: -FFXI's wonderful sense of rhythm in battle and the excellent movement controls return. That is,...

    Set back to MMO's in every way.

    Rated on September 29, 2010 by Army4God

    There was an article written just a day or two ago talking about how the Asian games are 5 years behind the west. This game is a perfect example. It is so unpolished that only a fanboi could even ho...

    Without all the ranting, hating and loving of the game, just the facts :)

    Rated on September 23, 2010 by G4mBi7

    The Good: - OMFG, the graphics are superb! Visually amazing!!! - Character Creation is simple, sleek and all around very nicely implemented. - The voice acting (when it exists) is done very nicely...

    Not bad, just different. Definitely worth a try!

    I ordered the collectors edition a long time ago and was quite excited when i got it 2 days ago. I downloaded immediately and have been playing for 10 hours or so. Heres my thoughts: So first let m...
