Summary: I bought and played this game for the first month of release and couldn't believe how unfinished and lacking in content it was. I was really hoping it would be just like Final Fantasy XI online but with better graphics and man it couldn't be farther away.
Summary: There is no content yet and Square hasn't announced a date for the content patch. There are multiple bugs that have not been addressed and Square does not provide any support. In order to play the game you are required to have a very expensive video card and even then the lag from their servers...
Summary: I played the beta for this game and was very displeased. first with the amount of GPU power needed to get any sort of gameplay without latency. I upgraded to an geforce GTX 470 and was still getting latency. Not with actual low FPS but with input...
Poor interface & design flaws ruining what should be a great game

Excerpt: As a long time fan of the Final Fantasy and having also dabbled in a few different flavours of MMORPG in the past, most notably World Of Warcraft and Final Fantasy XI, the prospect of a new online offering from SquareEnix was an enticing one.
Pros: Visually very pleasing, satisfying combat, authentic Final Fantasy feel
Cons: Horrible user interface, no auction house, overly complicated crafting, stability issues
Huge Disappointment; Square may be losing their touch

Excerpt: I have always been a big fan of Square; they make some terrific games, and it is Final Fantasy in particular which I love. After 13, which was not up to par with the others, I had high hopes for the gorgeus looking 14. And I guess that is the one positive feature about it.
Pros: Gorgeus graphics, very customiseable characters .
Cons: Bland storyline, everything too complicated, lack of tutorial .
