Summary: We've all been waiting for the long awaited explanation on the crystal war, which happened 20 years ago in vanadiel, well now... here it is. It's like repetition of the crystal war only not based in the town you can see from the meadows. Anyways it's an ok expansion but SE are still failing. lolsch... wth is with SCH no one likes SCH ffs -.-; and DNC.... please spare us the embarassment SE.
Conclusion: This is a great way for people to sample FFXI, it also has all the data from all the expansions, so if people want to replace the 30 odd cds they currently have it's a great update. It's closer to Everquest than WoW, if you're looking for PVP avoid, but if you're looking for an immensely deep complex MMO, with a storyline that rivals those told in the single player FFs this is a definite winner.
Conclusion: Buy this game, then buy the Starter pack(Around 3 pounds or less online) You will then have the main Final Fantasy game, and an expansion. If you love what you see hunt around for the remaining packs, you can get the chains of promathia, and the other expansion pack super cheap if you know where to look.
One off the few MMORPG still going strong after many years
17 August 2003
Conclusion: Ill start by saying this game indeed needs someone able to put a fair amount of time into it to see results. Like many MMORPGS the principal is the same level a job/race to higher levels to be able to do the harder quest for storyline and equipment advancement. The problem alot off MMORPGS is getting the balance right in a very delicate economy which is vital.
Excerpt: jeu qui ne se joue qu'avec une connection internet, vous devez vous inscrire et payer 10 euro par mois. Mais ce jeu et vraiment grandiose le monde et immense et la complexité du jeu et hors du commun. Je vous conseille de prévoir des mois et des mois de temps libre pour pouvoir étre au top.
