Summary: I bought two of these. First one was for $20, second for $25 with shipping. I thought they were a rip off at that price, imagine how I'd feel at $50. The D-pad died after 6 months of GTA SA. The sticks are competent but one side has gotten notchy after a year.
Summary: I just got Windows 8 and I have not found a way to get the controller to work. I installed the driver from the website and when I plug in the controller, it says the driver could not be loaded and the controller input does not work.
Summary: So let's begin with the pros, and some of these may have been mentioned by others: Inexpensive, non-shoddy construction. The analog sticks have a great "click" when pressed, and the face buttons have a distinct depressed feel. Also, I am a big fan of the very long cable, too.
Decent enough game if you're looking for an MMORPG to pass the time.

Summary: The game is alright. It's not much more than a glorified WoW for Final Fantasy lovers. There is very little help beyond the intro missions. I have no idea how to get any materials for the professions. The battle system is unique. Still very FF like with it's real-time turn-based quality.
If you don't mind grinding at things then this game may be for you.

Summary: Having played the beta I already knew what not to expect. Having played FFXI I can certainly say they followed a similar yet different mold with this game. Overall the game is perfect for someone that doesn't mind grinding for days to accomplish anything useful.
Summary: I really want to like this game... I wonder if I'm even reaching with giving it 2 stars. I can't stand playing it, quite honestly. It's so clunky (and not graphically, just the UI. Graphically it's gorgeous, and I have a great computer to handle it on max settings.
Summary: I could barely play this game for a month before giving up. Nothing seemed "broken" per se, but nothing seemed "fun." I look forward to seeing what they do with it in the coming months so I can try it again once they work on making a game what it's supposed to be, "fun.
Summary: I would say its up to par with the other Final Fantasy Games. Nothing going to blow you away but the graphics are really nice and they even say that there are more changes on the way. If you like RPGing games then you'll like it.
Ok for now, will be better, but to wait or move on??

Summary: FFXIV Is an alright MMORPG as of now, there are still some bugs, but the dev's are on top of things. It definitely has a lot of potential, the graphics are beautiful, better than normal RPG's.
