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.
Buy ANYTHING else but this game - from a sad FF fan....
15 January 2011
Summary: I am a rabid FF fan and couldn't wait for this game to come out. I have played nearly everything that FF (or Square Enix for that matter) has come out with and this game is BY FAR the most appaulingly bad game they have ever put out - or that I have honestly ever played - YES, it's that bad!
Summary: Stay far far away from this game. This is one of the worst mmorpg games I've played this decade. The UI is horrible, lag is bad, no auction house, can't invite someone into a party unless you stand next to him, waiting 36 hours to do quest sucks, no automatic battle so you have to spam the 1 key. I usually don't write any reviews for a game but this game is so bad that I wish it will die in 3 months just like APB mmorpg.
Summary: I can't call this MMO a game, because it isn't fun. It's a job. I already work more than 8 hours a day at my career and if I wanted a 2nd job I certainly would have picked one that I don't have to pay for (and yes I paid for this, I bought the software). This is too bad, because there is potential here. I like the graphics, the ability to be multi-class (I want to be a battle mage) and I like the main quest.
Summary: Boring, expensive, and mind numbingly slow. The game isn't even half finished, and the best way to describe it is a paid beta test. There is literally nothing to do except grind off monsters endlessly or craft endlessly. There is no economy in the game thanks to no auction house system. Enemies are sparse, while communication and a sense of community are zilch. The game is young yet feels so barren.
