Summary: Unless you are never going to cancel your subscription, DO NOT BUY THIS GAME! The stupidest idea anyone has ever thought of: if your subscription is cancelled for more than 3 months, you must buy a new copy of the game, subscribe, and start over.
Summary: Now before you all tear me a new one and tell me I dont know what Im talking about... understand that I am an FF junkie thats been with them since the begining! Hell, I started video games on a Comodore 64 (pre atari for those too young to know).
Summary: I made a very big mistake when I purchased this game thinking it was a regular game like my other games. I have never bought an online game B4 so didn't realize what it was. I also found I needed an HDD to play to but I still don't have the answer to how I would hook all this up.
Sorry kids, you have to pay a monthy fee to play this one.

Summary: I won't ever know how much fun this game is. I am returning it immediately. I found that for $99.99 what I got was the right to pay "PlayOnline" a monthy fee to actually be able to play this game. I am wondering what in the world they are actually selling here, it certainly isn't a game.
Summary: Well when I got the game I was installing it and everything then it told me I had to enter a credit card number to pay for some more things for PlayOnline... I was like what the heck i jsut pay $110.00 for this game now I have to pay $13.00 a month...
Summary: #1 It doesnt use a microphone. #2 It is the most complicated game for anything I have ever seen; in the game and just trying to get into the game. #3 It is very laggy even with cable internet. #4 It is not the best looking for graphics. #5 It has very in-need-of-help controls for movement.
Summary: I love FFXI, but this review isn't about the game...there are plenty of other reviews here for that. This review is concerning the HDD. Okay...let's clear up a major misconception here. The HDD cannot be used as a memory card.
