Story Overview:
Eorzea. A Land embraced by Gods and forged by Heroes. Seeking control of this realm and its abundant crystal resources, the Garlean Empire sends forth a massive host on a campaign to conquer its southern neighbor. Driven by madness, the commander of the invading forces silently plots to tear the moon from the heavens and hurl it down upon the land. The people of the realm soon learn of this foul scheme, and join their hands in prayer in an eleventh-hour attempt to entreat the aid of the gods, only to see their endeavors fail. From within the moon emerges Bahamut, an ancient terror seething with rage fueled by countless generations of imprisonment. Sensing the tug of Fate, a powerful magus channels the last of his strength to send Eorzea’s heroes into a temporal rift. There they wait, untouched by the flames of destruction, until they are needed again. Those heroes are you, and the hour of awakening is now. Come and witness a realm reborn.

=== Revised for 2.2 patch ===

Would rank 4.5 stars currently. Original review mostly in place, slightly revised with additional notes at bottom:

FFXIV:ARR is certainly a ton better than the original FFXIV 1.0. The game itself is fun, and added a lot of elements that make it enjoyable. For example, using the dungeon finder to continue on in the game's storyline. If only FFXI had that during the CoP days... It basically will find you a Tank, Healer, and 2 DPS automatically so that you can progress in the story.

One thing I would like to make mention that is really impressive is how they do the classes. You can level all of the jobs on a single character, and change them just by changing weapons, but the interesting spin on it is that your main job doesn't get some abilities until you've leveled the other classes. (You only get a few 'additional traits' at first, and it increases every 5 levels.)

For example, if you level a guardian, you'll only get a handful of abilities specifically for guardian. Change your weapon and level Conjurer to level 2 and your Guardian will now be able to "equip" the Cure spell (if you want.) Level it to level 8 and you can "equip" the Protect spell. You can mix and match any number of classes "additional abilities" so long as Guardian main can use it. So I could mix 2 Conjurer spells, a Marauder spell, and a spell from Archer if I wanted.

Once you get to level 30, you can even further specialize into advanced jobs such as Paladin (30 Glad/15 Conjurer) to enable a different set of abilities. By specializing into a job, you get less "additional abilities" slots, however, you gain job specific abilities to make up for it. Jobs are limited to cross-classing with specific classes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth the wait. September 7, 2013
Platform for Display:PC Download| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
So first off read the bad reviews of this game. Most are complaining the log on issues. AO 9-4-13 the servers have been fixed and expanded. There is no trouble logging on into the game at any time of the day. Yes it will be jam packed during the weekends or the time you get off from work but now there is a que time/status instead of giving you an error code. And I don't work for Square Enix but i bet they didn't expect a big demand for this game which is well worth it. And its understandable if you have patience, they did fix the problem now everyone can enjoy it. So i don't see why people are crying over like spilled milk, and some returning it. News Flash, where i live there is no physical copy of the game on any shelf. I live in San Diego, even parts of Orange County and LA is sold out. And also even Amazon and Square Enix suspended the digital download or purchase of the game.

I played the 1.0 version of this game, even the Final Fantasy 11. This is a completely new game and an easy learning curve. The graphics are beautiful, the music is soothing. And the gameplay flows with a story line. I played World of Warcraft since vanilla and i must say i am happy i switched over cause WoW was going nowhere. But honestly i just wrote this review just to clarify about the server issue, and try the game out from someone you know. See if you like it or not.

5.0 out of 5 stars My new online home for the next few years September 16, 2013
By Phong
Platform for Display:PC Download|Edition:Standard
I've been jumping around many different MMOs since I decided to stop playing Aion(played since beta). I tried WoW again for the 3rd time and I just can't get past level 15 because I would get bored. Rift is cool but I couldn't get immersed into the game world. Reactivated my SWTOR account but I just couldn't really get into that game. FF14 AAR wasn't even on my radar but then I started reading about the server congestion and how people couldn't log in. I got curious and started doing more research.

I decided to take a look and finally got a copy from Gamestop last week because someone didn't pick up their pre-order. Been playing for almost 2 weeks and not once did I have problems logging in. The game runs very smooth and there is practically no lag in the main hubs with lots of people running around. I was very surprised with the smooth game playing and beautiful graphics. I've always preferred PvP over PvE but I really love the game world in FF14 AAR. Eventually they will add PvP and I'll be a happy gamer.

Pros: Beautiful graphics and smooth game play. You can level up all the classes with the same character. You can also level up all the crafting professions on the same character.

Cons: The tab targeting system needs a little tweaking.

Conclusion: Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty great game and very casual friendly. January 1, 2014
Platform for Display:PC Download| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
I've just finished my free trial period which is a whole month, depending how you play you can reach max level on atleast one job in that time frame and get a good feel of the game for yourself and as i said in the title it's very casual friendly, don't need to give away 10 hours a day of your life to this game (yet).

it's gameplay is very fun and the game itself has some aspects of it that can grab onto nostalgia if you're a Final Fantasy veteran for example Materia can be placed on equipment to gain benefits, you can see Magitek armor around the game and even get one as a mount. Those 2 examples are from Final Fantasy VII and VI for those of you who have not played the FF games before there are plenty of other references to older FF games along with references to entirely different games such as a Metal Gear Solid reference during one of the story missions. As for the classes/jobs each class/job feels unique in it's own ways once you get above level 10, just got my Monk to level 50(Max current level cap). There are multiple types of jobs to choose from. I'll give a small description of each from what i understand about them so far.

Disciples of War:
•Gladiator (later on turns into Paladin) which is a tank class who's role is to direct the enemies attention to him/herself to protect the party make things run smoothly.
•Pugilist (later turns into Monk) which is a DPS/DD class (Damage Per Second/Damage Dealer) it's role is to pretty much pummel the enemy down with brute force and combo type moves.
•Marauder (later turns into Warrior) which is another tank like class just like paladin it's role is to keep the enemies on him but i believe it's a more DPS/DD oriented job, (I've not personally played it so i could be mistaken.
