Summary: I wanted a gaming pad, but I wasn't going for one for Final Fantasy XIV. I like Borderlands 2, Skyrim, Street Fighter, and more. I honestly have a ridiculously and embarrassingly large video game collection on my computer. This controller hasn't worked on a SINGLE one of them. Total waste of money.
Summary: The Snake Bit me. (sigh) I must say, I did not expect to be disappointed by what USED TO BE my favorite Game Controller. However, it seems that Snakebyte is not interested in the PC Gaming community any longer and stopped manufacturing this device for PC's - only consoles. My game has crashed MULTIPLE TIMES under Win 8 with a failure that is directly caused by this controller's drivers. It has also crashed in 7, but not as often. There is no fix, other than to uninstall.
Summary: I wanted an official controller for a game that I love. This controller suffers from many of the same issues the first version of FFXIV 1.0 suffered. The software is garbage and it is even hard to find online [...] It functions okay, but Snakebyte ignores support. Purchase an XBOX or PS3 controller if you want to play any computer game on your PC. Other than that this controller actually feels good and has the official branding...
Summary: I was a large fan of Final Fantasy XI, the MMO predecessor to this game. Simply put, I was sorely disappointed. In making all the new jobs, skills, leveling locations, quests, etc etc content, they seemed to have forgotten to make the game actually FUN. While this MMO has all the requirements for an MMO that would take up hours and hours of your time (a standard for all MMO's now) it doesn't leave you at all happy that you spent those hours playing it.
Summary: Having played and been hooked on FFXI, I fully expected to be enthralled and love this game. I was SO wrong. The UI and combat are clunky, unintuitive and unexciting. We'll start with these. UI: Rather than a 2D overlay, it's rendered along with the rest of the game, which makes the game run even worse. If you're going to purchase this, be sure your PC can handle it first by hunting down the FFXIV benchmark.
Don't do it. Do not buy this game. Have some self respect.

Summary: This game is like the step-dad you got when your parents divorced when you were a little kid, and your mother remarried. You know, your mom tells you he's great and that things will be fun, new and exciting. Then you learn that he's clumsy, lazy and consumes your time with no accomplishment in return. (Well, that's THIS game!) I'll elaborate since I've already written this much.
Summary: Rantish review... My aim is bound to change targets (you have been warned) After nearly two weeks of trying to really, really like FFXIV I can say with out a doubt that this game is absolute rubbish and a complete waste of money. I bought the collector's edition and other than the joy I had of seeing the huge box arrive, FFXIV has been nothing but one disappointment after another.
