  • 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. That legacy ended with the release of XI, a massive-multiplayer online RPG (MMORPG).

  • Summary: By now, it isn't easy for a massively multiplayer online role-playing game to distinguish itself. Years ago, games like Ultima Online and especially 1998's EverQuest set the standards for this unique style of gaming, which today spans a seemingly countless number of similarly styled games that look identical on the surface--and, in many ways, actually are virtually identical.
  • Pros: N/A

  • 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. The map feature is truly invaluable to the would-be explorer and coordinates help parties meet one another or give directions to dungeons, a sorely needed ability in a world as large as this.

Final Fantasy XI

Gamecell
19 October 2007
  • Conclusion: Unlike a lot of online RPGs, FFXI has an excellent support network, and although downtime can be a drag servers are updated almost daily to fix bugs and add new features. Overall I enjoyed playing the game - Initially it’s difficult to get into, and often seems too complicated for its own good, but as with most of the Final Fantasy series, you’ll have to persevere in order to see the best of what’s on offer.
  • Pros: Huge worlds and a primarily friendly online community., Great scenery textures and character models., Incredibly in-depth – FFXI has more menus and options than you’ll know what to do with.
  • Cons: Occasional slow-down, especially in foggy regions., Requires a lot of time and perseverance., Almost too complicated for its own good., Requires that you devote huge amounts of time.

Test : Final Fantasy XI

12 October 2014
  • Summary: Final Fantasy XI, ou le premier épisode de la série uniquement consacré au jeu online. Le pari audacieux de Square porte-t-il enfin ses fruits ? Au lendemain de sa conquête des Etats-Unis, le MMORPG par excellence semble désormais en droit d'être pleinement évalué. Après une brève revue de ce qui vous attend dans cette aventure palpitante, autant vérifier directement si FFXI est le maître incontesté dans sa catégorie ou si il ne mérite finalement qu'un simple coup...
  • Pros: Durée de vie infinie, Une réalisation superbe, Un gameplay intuitif et sans faille, LinkShells et Parties, Vana'Diel
  • Cons: Pas accessible à tous, Peut être rébarbatif à la longue pour certains

  • Excerpt: Оформим двойное гражданство? Анонс российского старта знаменитой MMORPG от Square Enix для большинства геймеров стал приятной неожиданностью. Благодаря грациозным телодвижениям «Акеллы» отечественные пользователи ПК смогут познакомиться с миром Вана’диэль ненамного позже своих европейских собратьев.
