Summary: I love FInal Fantasy 14: ARR. It's a traditional-feeling MMORPG with enough twists to make it unique, addicting, and just plain fun. But one thing holds it back -- the elitist community members. After I hit level 50 and started learning the new dungeons/Primal fights, I found myself being paired with more and more people who were ruthless with their criticism. Not only would they say nasty things about a person struggling with their toon (i.e.
Summary: Just a little history before I go into my review: I've been playing FFXI online for the past 11 years. I did not make the leap to the 1.0 version of FFXIV. My review is upon FFXIV - A Realm Reborn for PS3. Graphics: A wonderful improvement compared to FFXI. FFXIV looks crisp in 720p on PS3. No major lag during combat on my end. I have experienced slight load lag in countries.
A Hit on the Game, A Miss on the Software (PS3 Version)
13 September 2013
Summary: I really loved playing this game. It was a lot of fun... what I could see of it. The character creation, the gameplay, the storyline, the Final Fantasy world, the battle system, everything was really well done. But... Many users are experiencing a flickering image in the game, myself included. Different parts of the screen flicker randomly and non-stop.
Summary: I know there are people who will chime in, "But I'M playing just FINE!" Well good for you, but there ARE countless OTHERS that have YET to even play. I've been playing fine the past few days as long as I log in around 3am in EFFING morning. But NOW, I can't even get past the Start screen and it boots me. Or I won't even get to select JACK because the world's are unable to load. My bro, who's got FFXIV on PC, is always freakin' AFK (Away from Keyboard).
Summary: The game play is amazing and so is the graphics. You don't have to campaign with anyone unless you want to. It really does feel like a Final Fantasy game with a vast world to explore.....if you can get into the servers. I get into the American/England server 40% of the time cause its either full or doesn't appear at all. Only the Japanese server appears forcing you to create a new character just to play the game.
Summary: This product is exactly as I assumed it should be great to play and the shipping was spot on. Now to the part that is not so good. This product when available was selling for 39.99 but my preorder logged in at 59.99 20.00 dollars more than I could have purchased it for when it came out. so I gave a low rating for overselling preorder. I will never preorder again.
Summary: I bought this game for my boyfriend for his birthday. He is a long time Final Fantasy fanboy. I, personally, think the game is very overrated. He was heartbroken when all of the collector's editions were sold out the first time, so we snatched one up when Amazon got the second set of collector's editions in.
Summary: Hadn't even made it to the create a char screen yet and already was having issues. I had to reboot twice before first update because PS3 froze. When I created my character there was only 1 server accepting new characters siren and of course the world was full and need to wait for a opening.
