Final Fantasy XI

Fragland
28 May 2012
  • Excerpt: The very first mainstream RPG in the western area was without a doubt Final Fantasy VII. It was also one of the first video games seen in commercials on television. Months before the sequel, FF VIII, was released, everybody was reading long special reports about it. Number IX did even better.

  • Excerpt: After successful launches across two continents, Final Fantasy XI received its second expansion: Chains of Promathia . While the first expansion, Rise of the Zilart , brought new areas, missions, and jobs, Chains of Promathia bestowed only new areas and missions on the citizens of Vana'diel.

  • Excerpt: Square-Enix surprised the gaming industry with the announcement and subsequent release of Final Fantasy XI. The Final Fantasy series has been through various evolutionary processes throughout the years, but its core remained the same: it was a console RPG.

  • Excerpt: Those accustomed to MMORPGs will quickly adapt to Vana’diel. This may be the first foray into an online world for some players, thanks to their love of all things Square, and they may find things tricky at the start.

  • Summary: When I heard the eleventh installment of one of my favorite fantasy RPG series was going to be a Massively Multiplayer outing, I was less than thrilled. I’m just not a big fan of the MMORPGs, whether it’s due to the necessary time commitment, the monthly fees, or the feeling of the game never really...

Final Fantasy XI

ActionTrip
4 December 2003
  • Conclusion: In all, the pros of Final Fantasy XI greatly outweigh the cons. The graphics, job and skill system, as well as the overall polish make it an enjoyable experience. The many quests and missions offered allow players to find things to do alone when friends are not online to form a group.
  • Pros: Great graphics and animations, rich and polished MMORPG universe, plenty to do in game, stays true to the Final Fantasy franchise, Play Online, Rise of the Zilart expansion and Tetra Master included with purchase;
  • Cons: Currently no PvP, extra costs for additional characters, music gets repetitive, cannot hit monsters while moving.

Final Fantasy XI

Gamecell
19 October 2007
  • Conclusion: FFXI being released on consoles implies that they’re trying to bring the game to the armchair audience. The problem is that that, as far as I'm concerned, MMORPGs are not suited to console play.
  • Pros: HUGE world, Literally, much to do!, Party & alliance play, Superb online community
  • Cons: Not really suited to consoles, Restrictive at the lower levels, Takes too long to get to the higher levels, Can be tedious playing alone, No party voice chat, Overcomplicated in just about every way, Feels more like Everquest than Final Fantasy…, Terrible tearing and lag, PS2 GTi graphics
