    Torture

    I started with very high expectation of this game, and ordered two copies of the collector's edition, one for myself and another one for my girlfriend. We spent 2 hours just to open the accounts and download the patch on... Read Full Review

    What a waste of bandwidth

    My bandwidth is limited, so I try to buy physical copies of games. This is one of them. After the disc loaded, guess what? Still a 3.5Gb download.- Character creation is nice.- Cutscenes are painfully long- Controls ... Read Full Review

    Revived

    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 billing until they feel ... Read Full Review

    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 around with it for a wh... Read Full Review

    Not bad, just different. Definitely worth a try!

    Beautiful Game. Don't listen to the haters.

    A lot of people are calling this a FF XI clone, but either they barely played the game, or they are FF haters in general (most likely WoW players). I haven't played the game long but as someone who has played FF XI si... Read Full Review

    Not a fit for instant gratification personalities - update

    After many MMOs played, this was one of three I most strongly hoped would come about - my others would be by Bethesda with a Morrowind theme and another ground-breaking joystick friendly space sim by the NetDevil crew. ... Read Full Review

    Thinking it might be time to try this MMO? Think again.

    First, let me start by saying that I was more excited for the release of FF14 than I have been for any MMO. I was tardy to the party when it came to FF11, and I was thrilled with the idea of getting in on the ground flo... Read Full Review

    The latest 1.18 patch made the game worse! Only endgame players can play the game now, New players can not play at all..

    I played this game since launch (more than 10 months) I reached Level 50 (max level at this moment). The latest updated just killed all of leveling progresses. Levequest become worthless. Only endgame players can p... Read Full Review
