Summary: I have downloaded this file three times each time taking roughly an hr and a half. All three times the data files have been corrupted and i cannot even install the game. Extremely frustrating and i will not buy a virtual game from Amazon again.
Summary: This Software Is Not An Upgrade It Is A Downgrade. Says It Includes Abyssea.... It Does Not. Abyssea Sections Are Downloaded Through The Version Update, (Very Slow and What I Was Trying To Avoid By Buying This Supposed Software Update) The Bottom Line........ The Original Software I Bought in 2006 While Outdated Required A Download Through The Play-Online Viewer of 12,000 Files And Change.
Summary: I am VERY dissatisfied with the customer service end of registering this product. I am using a valid payment method that qualified for 3D-Secure. I spent the better part of my Saturday waiting for this game to download and install. I am using a debit card that works fine for every single other financial payment under the sun. For some reason, the registration process for PlayOnline will not take my payment. And the worst part?
Summary: I wish I could get a refund, tried 4 different credit cards including mine, my brothers and mothers cards, all were given complications in spite of them being completely valid on all other sites and stores. Playonline is completely incompetent and I will never buy another game by square enix, this is a joke. Square enix is spitting in their customers' faces by advertising a revitalized game, but having a payment system that bars most of its customer base.
Summary: While the game itself can be fun if you've a ton of time to kill, the support is still horrid. If you are running anything but Windows XP, you can expect problems, even with this latest compilation (non of it is updated; it's simply a copy from each release and you'll still go through hours of updates). Some things to point out: 1) You may have to download a separate exe from the POL website if you're running Vista/7.
Summary: I downloaded this game, set up my credit card with secure code, and Playonline still refuses to accept my credit card information. Customer service is unhelpful. I've read that the address function for their POL server is extraordinarily picky when it comes to identifying credit card addresses.
Summary: Hi all, I wouldn't review about how good or bad the content of the game is because I can't even get in. Here are issues I faced, none mentioned in the review, descriptions, but they are highly complaint on the internet. 1. Windows 7 issue: It can be the most frustrating game installation you've ever had (like me). On the internet, people have different ways of solving it, although some never even have an installation issue.
Summary: After all the hoopla regarding the FFxi Ultimate Collection Abyssea being released on May 16th. It still isn't available for purchase or downloading on May 16th 13:00 hours EDT. Phone support has no time for it to be ready; in fact, support person wasn't even aware of the package. I had to read site message to him from POL website. Go figure ....
Summary: I am a huge fan of final fantasy and after 6 years I decided to break down and buy ffxi. The main reason I did not previously is due to not having a 360 or pc capible of handing the game. When I first started the game was great and I found a group of other newbs to hang out with and do the early missions and quests with. The big problem I have is that after level 20 you need a party to do nearly everything, including level your job.
