Summary: I started playing this game around the time the Xbox360 version came out. It is a lot of fun. You will have to do a lot of grinding. It will take you a lot longer to get to lv75 then it does it WoW for example.
Summary: A great game for RPG lovers. Very quest, mission intensive. I play this game almost exclusively. Downside is that it can take years to accomplish a lot of the endgame material. Also, it is impossible to get to endgame without the help of others.
Summary: [...] The mouse controls for this game are horrid and the keyboard controls (both versions) are frustrating at best. It really is meant to be played on a gamepad, I highly recommend Logitech Cordless Rumblepad 2 with Vibration Feedback (Black) .
Summary: I recently purchased this product for a friend fo mine. I have had no problems with Amazon in the past, but this time for some odd reason they double charged my checking account. Well have just enough to get the game it put my account into an overdrawn status.
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.
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.
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.
Summary: It's only fun if you can get a party, you can't really do anything on your own in this game. It is however, fun once you get into a party but it can be tough depending on what time you're going to play. There is a lot of downtime in this game too.
