Final Fantasy XIV Online: A Realm Reborn PS4 Review
15 May 2014
Excerpt: Other console/handheld formats: PS3 Final Fantasy XIV was widely considered as a mess on its initial release back in 2010, to the point that Square Enix themselves publicly apologized and began a quest to rebuild the game from the ground up.
Summary: More than most games, an MMO is truly the sum of all its many parts. This world and all its structures, systems and suites of activities are to be a players home for far longer than any other video game title.
Summary: Square Enix’s Final Fantasy-themed MMO doesn’t get everything right, even on PS4, but the things it does well outweigh those it doesn’t, and the end result is a fun and engaging open world RPG with some great multiplayer options that don’t really come into their own until end-game.

Conclusion: A Realm Reborn was already a great game when it launched, though it admittedly ran out of steam after a few months. Thanks to a bunch of content upgrades and a new level of sheen afforded by the PS4 hardware however, the game is easily one of the best on the market right now.
