5.0 out of 5 stars A view from a former MMORPG Player October 16, 2003
Format:Video Game
This will give you an idea of how the game plays. Even though I explain it from the view of someone that has played an MMORPG before this game is easy to learn. If you are new to online games this is a great start.
FFXI in Japan has really gained a lot of popularity. It's been out over a year now. There are 20+ servers with over 2k players on each server during prime time. Just as much or more than EQ had for its time.
When you start the game you choose from 6 different classes. Warrior, Monk, Thief, Red Mage, White Mage, Black Mage. Really all this choice determines is the few newbie items you start with though.
You are actully level 1 of each class. You can change classes at any time in your home town. Each class levels seperately from the other classes. So you could be a level 7 warrior and decide you would like to try a mage and start at level 1 with that mage. You lose nothing for switching.
At level 18 you get to have a subclass. If you don't have a subclass you will suck. As you gain level your stats go up. You get your subclass level at 1/2 your main class level. Unless you have not leveled that class up to that level. You get all the abilities that class gets and access to all spells. You don't get the super ability of that class. Super Abilities can be used once every 2hr. This is stuff like 30 sec invincibility. 30 sec 100% evade. 30 sec infinate mana. 45 sec 100% crit hits. 30 sec no spell cast time. You also get a % of the stats your subclass has. Between 30-50%.
So You can me a white mage/warrior. Warrior/monk. Thief/black mage. Whatever you like. You can change this at any time. So if you decide your subclass has stuff you like more you can switch that to your main class.
At level 30 you can do quests to unlock 9 more classes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dont listen to the other reviews March 12, 2004
By A Customer
Format:Video Game
First of all, I've played this game since its release, and still do. I am above level 60 out of 75 levels. Most of the people who are writing negative reviews dont seem to have spent anywhere near enough time playing this game to properly review it.
Firstly, exp is not hard to get at all in this game. I see alot of people complaining that it is, I have no idea why. The first 10 levels of this game are the hardest you'll face, because most people solo, and its hard to party. You'll gain about 20-72 exp per kill, and need about 2000 exp to level. The good thing is, a death below level 10 will not set you back far, and its fast to recover your health and keep fighting.
Whoever said you can only gain 600-900exp a hour in a party, best case scenario, is WRONG. What the heck? That is ridiculous. I have had parties where I have gained 6000 exp in an hour, and this is above level 50, where it takes 10,000 to level. I remember gaining 2-3 levels in one sitting, above 50. Exp is very easy to get, in fact you'll find yourself interested in doing other things besides exp'ing, because its easy to just go back gain levels some other time. On a bad day, it might be hard to get into a party, but the game is so well-designed, you can just put your seek flag up, and do other things while you wait for a party, like craft items, or kill monsters for loot, or quests or missions.
Their is a very deep storyline in this game, that whoever said this game has no story obviously did not know about. You have to talk to the NPC's and townspeople! The story is hidden, you have to work to bring it out. The game pits 3 nations against each other for control of each area in the world. when you create a character, you choose which of the 3 nations to join (can be changed later if you want).

5.0 out of 5 stars Graphics are great and play is fun and involving November 14, 2003
Format:Video Game
First, that reviewer from Iowa who was complaining about the graphics is dead wrong. That person must have a slow PC or poor graphics card. The graphics are awesome on my Althlon XP 2400+, Radeon 9600 PRO. I turned up the game resolution so now the menus are smaller and don't take up so much space on the screen. You CAN use a gamepad as long as you program it using the configuration tool. I use my gamepad for most of the playing and when I want to chat, I just go to my keyboard and start yapping away. I also use the keyboard to target Party members in battle since it's easier (I'm a White Mage so most of the time I am curing or protecting in battle).
Also, I think the fact that walking from place to place takes a long time and that the game is a bit slower paced is a good thing. It makes it feel more epic. Let's face it, role playing games are not supposed to be fast paced anyways. I'd rather have a game that will last a year or more than one where I can "beat it" in a month.
Also, there's so many activities and quests to do in this game. I'm currently trying to increase my skill in clothmaking so I make gloves, hats, and clothes to sell. It can be frustrating at times to have to go out and collect the items you need, but in the end it adds another layer to the game, not just going out and fighting monsters for "world peace".
Plus, finding people to party with isn't all that difficult, as long as you can bring something to the group. Fighter-type people should strive to excel in fighting skills and get the best armor and weapons. Mages should go and buy all the magic they can. Finally, when in battle, people must "play their role". Fighters are supposed to fight in the front lines and engage the enemy directly.
