Final Fantasy XI by Square Enix

Game Monkeys
5 March 2013
  • Summary: In the end, FFXI is a great MMO that suffers from few, though noteworthy, issues. Play is smooth, the graphics are great, and the game remains addictive…though a lack of compelling interaction and an offer of little more than level treadmilling means it won't be for everyone.
  • Pros: Pretty, fun, and vast.
  • Cons: Limited, a bit dull, and uncompelling.

  • Excerpt: The second of three planned "Abyssea" $10 add-ons, Scars of Abyssea was released alongside a level cap adjustment from 80 to 85 in September of this year. The game continues a quick evolution to keep players interested.

  • Excerpt: In 2009, the FFXI team threw three mini-expansions at players. For $10 each, these three add-on scenarios focused on plot and were generally regarded as a letdown. Only the last of the three had a worthwhile plot; no surprise, since it featured the beloved Tarutaru NPC Shantotto.

  • Excerpt: I can hardly believe what happened here. After two especially uninteresting and unrewarding "add-on" mini-expansions (A Crystalline Prophecy and A Moogle Kupo d'Etat), the FFXI dev team surprised us with something that had decent gameplay ideas and a hilariously fun storyline.

Into Liquid Sky
28 April 2005
  • Excerpt: Final Fantasy. It's a series that has become extremely popular ever since Final Fantasy VII came out on the Playstation (yes, it was big before, but not as mainstream big as it was afterwards).
  • Pros: Massive world with tons of things to do and lots of places to visit, Lots of customization when it comes to equipment, Combat and party aspects require strategy, Great artistic style
  • Cons: Too many menus to go through just to get into the game, Graphics could use more polish

Just RPG
22 March 2005
  • Excerpt: Square Enix has broken into new territory for themselves with the release of Final Fantasy Online . The biggest question out there is whether or not they can make it work. Okay, let's get this out in the open: I am a virgin when it comes to online games.

The game, which is one of the only multi-platform MMOs on the market (both PC and Xbox 360 versions are available and interact with the PS2 players),...

Playstation Illustrated

  • Excerpt: Finally, after almost 3 years of speculation and rumor, the PS2 Hard Drive (HDD) is finally out. This, of course, has led to one major question for most PS2 owners: To buy, or not to buy?

The Laser
29 November 2004
  • Summary: Square-Enix and Sony have teamed up to bring the long-awaited Final Fantasy XI to the PS2, along with the much-vaunted Hard Disc Drive (HDD.) Players expecting a standard FF are in for a surprise, since the game more closely resembles EverQuest and other traditional PC online RPGS than the typical...

Game Boyz
28 November 2004
  • Excerpt: Many have criticised Final Fantasy XI for being nothing more than a money grabbing scheme, cooked up by the crooked cash-mongers at Square Enix. Let me be the first to tell you that all these accustions were made under false pretenses.
