Product Description

Twenty years have passed since the Great Crystal War, when the forces of darkness gathered and evil threatened the peaceful kingdoms of Vana'diel.

4.0 out of 5 stars FF XI is new to me November 16, 2006
By Josh G.
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I just bought this game a couple weeks ago so it is hard for me to give an extensive review. I will however let you all know what kind of impression this game has left on me.

To begin with I am a Final Fantasy fanatic so consider that as I continue my review.

The first thing I noticed which is impossible to miss unless you fall asleep is the lenghty install. To finish installing all of the expansions, get registered, perform updates, create a character, and start playing the game, it is probably going to take a few hours. This is assuming you have a broadband connection. If you do not have one expect this process to take considerably longer.

I won't complain too much about the install because a lot of other MMO games out there take quite some time to update as well. This is simply an FYI.

Character creation is pretty simple. The biggest problem I have with it is the lack of identity. There are few enough options that you kind of feel like you have the same character as 25% of the world. This isn't exactly accurate, but I never felt like I had anything original. It isn't a terrible thing, but it is one of those things I wish I could customize a little more.

The interface... well... lets just say it is different. I have played many MMO PC games and this interface and control scheme are way... way... different than any other game I've played. That doesn't make it bad though. I actually felt a little lost at first because the controls we so different than any MMO I have played. I actually had to look at the manual! That is like guy rule number one, never look at instructions. I failed! haha. The truth of the matter is once I got used to the controls I really liked them.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's Nice. February 20, 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is an overall good game for what it is. You will enjoy it for a while I know I did. But the biggest issue I have found is that the end game aspects completely take away the fun. You will have to level up a job that meets groups standards and not your own standards. You will have to deal with a rather rough in game economy depending on your server. You will also have to deal with the constant actions of RMT (Real Money Trade). In the end you will probably spend most of your day sitting around wondering why you are playing this game. The end game monsters that are fought only spawn every 21-24 real life hours and are heavily contested and have many people in line waiting for the items. I do not recommend this game for those that are seeking something less reliant on team play and required time. I have left FFXI after 2 years and went to World of Warcraft and do enjoy it much better. For those of you seeking a good MMORPG and not looking to devote your life I would say go with WoW. For diehard Final Fantasy fans then FFXI will most likely suit you. If you enjoyed FFXII then you will most likely enjoy the online version as it is very similar in it's battle engine but far less customizable. Just brace yourself for end game and all of its grief and despair. I hope this review helps some of you!

3.0 out of 5 stars Surrender your life and your free time August 6, 2007
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I have been playing this game for quite awhile, and also tried my hand at WoW. If you wonder if this game for you I will list the pro and cons.

Pros:
- Immersing stories, if you like FF series in general, you will love the storytelling aspect of the game. It is rich, detailed, and will suck you in. It does create somewhat believable world.
- Huge expansive areas. And I do mean it, huge!! Lots of area to explore. However, you won't reap all the benefits of exploring safely until you are lvl 75 and doing it with 1-2 other persons.
- Challenging, this game is not for the casual players. It is very involving and require some sort of understanding of each jobs that you choose. Some of the best items in the game will take a huge effort to get it and the helps of others.
- Complex, this is not a simple hack and slash by any means. A full understanding of each jobs you choose is required, and it will reward you with the satisfaction to do things that are somewhat impossible.
- It is a very social game. You will rarely be alone doing stuffs in this game, you cannot do most things by yourself. People are forced to interact and seek help, you don't have much choice, especially if you try to get anything done in this game. The social aspect of this game is what makes it so addictive, you will feel like you are in a big huge chatroom, and people will gossip and talks about everyday life stuffs just like in a chat room.
- There are a lot of things to do in this game, you will never run out of things to play and do. Even if you only level 1 job to 75. The amount of things you can do is endless.
- Battle system is quite intimidating but will reward you if you are smart and can take advantage of it.

3.0 out of 5 stars so so December 8, 2007
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Prepare to be disappointed if you've never played an morpg before. The first levels are easy to get, but once you get to ten and up you will need a party to level up faster. To unlock any other job class aside from the ones available at the begining of the game, you're going to need to get to level 30 first and do a different quest for each one. If you want to do anything later on in the game you'll need a party for it, and you'll need luck to find others who'll want to do the quest. When you do a world search you'll see that there are only 1-2 thousand people online, and then you have to see which are Japanese, or French. If so, you'll need to press the Tab button to see translation options in order to communicate. The only good thing really are the nice graphic and different areas. Don't be surprised to not accomplish much in hours after you level up enough to do anything. I'd only recommend this to people who have a lot of time to kill. By the way, EVERY SINGLE AREA in this game will have mobs and creatures that will "aggro" or attack you if your level is too low, so you have to check them from a distance to see their level of difficulty. (get used to doing this all the time if you don't want to die...)
