Summary: FFXI is, arguably, one of the most fun, dynamic and addictive MMORPG to hit the markets. One of the latest in the Final Fantasy series, FFXI takes different elements from other FF titles, world history, and theory in developing the jobs, quests, and titles in the game. Available to play on PC, PlayStation (2) and XBox 360, FFXI incorporates a diverse player base to create a world with it's own fluctuating economy, dialect, and customs.
Summary: With all due respects to other reviews, this game is one of the best online games there are, it isnt overly easy like that of WoW or AoC or other games, still has that FF feel, so yes SE didnt spend a load of money on the GUI they put it into content. Tho due to the lack of character customization in the char creation, you have thousands of types of armor and styles to choose from!
Summary: The game is alot of fun and enjoyable. The only thing I would like to see is that the cost of $12.95 per month after a 30 Trail period be entered in the discription so that future purchasers know.
Summary: I started this game in 03, JP release, quit in 06 for WoW, then quit WoW in 07, came back to this, then recently I started Age of Conan... and I think I'll go back to FFXI again. Let me explain, This game gives you everything EXCEPT open world ganking and glowing weapons. I'll break this down even further; PVP COMBAT - Not really much of it. There is a few PVP scenarios you can get into, but for some reason they arent very popular.
Great, highly-recommended game, but I didn't have enough time.

Summary: I have played many Final Fantasy games, and XI really brings the world to life by putting real people behind the characters. No more being "stuck" with the same old boring/not-so-boring NPCs, and more of a dynamic atmosphere. I like it. Like most MMORPGs, there is a lot designed to draw you in and keep you here. As a white mage, I found death and soloing two particularly harsh aspects of my early life.
Summary: This game was one of the first, MMORPGS that introduced the nice graphics and the good sotry line, all games nowadays modifed aspects from FF11 to get thier game going like WOW and GW. This is not your average every other day game, u need to put time in it and its rewarding, yes you might say it takes forever to lvl up and ur paying 15 bucks a month, but w/e.
Summary: I have been playing this game for about 5 years now and all i can say is that I'm still having fun.It does take awhile to master the controls and each job is different.So it's not for the casual gamer.FFXI has a great story line and well as battle system too.The graphics are very nice and not cartoonish looking like WOW.Only bad thing I don;t like is some times it takes a long time to get a party together.The social aspect is very good and it's easy to meet friends...
Summary: This game comes with a free 30-day trial, but that is not going to give you an accurate idea of the game as a whole. Its going to take some effort on the part of the player to truly experience all this game has to offer. I've been playing for a year and still haven't gotten a job to level 75. I am in no way unhappy about this, there are so many things to do that leveling a character is just part of the fun.
Summary: FFXI is a cross-platform MMORPG with a control scheme to fit Playstation 2, PC and Xbox360. However I really can't stand the KB controls in the PC edition(the mouse is totally useless) and many people including one of the reviewers here feels the same way. The better contol schemes for this game requre you to hook up ether a Dual Schock 2 clone(something that functions just like a Playstation 2 controler) or the "Xbox360 controler for Windows".
Summary: Jitensha~Kujata Server~75WHM 75BLM I have been playing FFXI for several years now, and I can tell you that Square Enix always keeps it coming!!! FFXI is not just the first worldwide cross server game, and multi platform game, with beautiful graphics (in comparison to other MMORPGS), it's a world for players who want to be challenged, even if you're not a Final Fantasy fan.
