The most epic MMORPG ever...
There are actually a few different gameplay options in this game. There's battling, adventure, fishing, alchemy, cooking...OK, there's a LOT of gameplay options in this game. Too many to explain at once, so I'll stick to the basics. Battling is half-automatic, half-manual control. Your character will enact melee attacks by themselves without any input from the player, but magic and abilities require input from the player. The cool part is, you can set magic and abilities as "Macros", which is basically hotkeys, making your response time quicker. Adventuring is, well, adventuring. You run around exploring on foot, or by riding a giant yellow bird called a Chocobo.
The graphics are good, but not great, because this game was released 8 Years Ago. Don't quote me on that, because I'm not entirely sure if it was 8 Years Ago. All the same, graphics don't really matter to me. What matters here is the amazing gameplay.
Believe it or not, as long as I've been playing this game, I have yet to get through any of the Storylines. I mostly just fool around by fighting Monsters or talking to my friends. As such, I don't know much of this game's story. Sorry everyone.
One of the only things I don't like about this game is it's music. Usually, the Final Fantasy Series Composer, Nobuo Uematsu, does a great job, but I think he was stumped on this one, as it's music is bland and pretty lifeless, no matter what area your exploring.
This is a great game. No matter what anyone says to me, I will always think it's great game. It's challenging, time consuming, and just plain fun. As a long time player of Final Fantasy XI, I hope it's here to stay for a very long time. Thanks for reading my review.
