Summary: Like the majority of recent final fantasy games this was bollocks. Another boring linear game with no real choice or influence in what you do, hack and slash rubbish. Also the new leveling up system, one word. LAZY. Graphically game was good but that about sums up the good points.
Summary: I paid alot for this game, the HDD, the PS2, and the other acessories. Now I have to pay $12.95 a month more just to play this one game. What a rip off. I can play Socom II for free. After my free 30 days trial period is over I am going to try to return the game.

Summary: I'm not going to review the game, Final Fantasy XI, beyond saying that it's a fine game if you're into that sort of thing, but rather the hard drive itself. I figured that having a hard drive in my PS2 would make it as useful as the one in my Xbox, it doesn't.
Summary: OK so Final Fantasy is a great series and this installment is no exception, but honestly, it was the stupidest decision to make it an online-ONLY game. I have played it at a friend's house and it rocks as a game, but I am one of the many people who are extremely disappointed that Square didn't...
Summary: Strictly from the technical side, it's not too bad. Communicating with other players is rather easy, as long as you have an extra keyboard laying around. Load times are fast and the graphics are pretty good. I also liked how diverse you can make the characters.
Summary: A dissapointment: The 2 star score is only because the game was fun before it became so god damn boring after about two months. I am a perfect example for one of the people who didn't get what he bargained for when buying this game in such haste.
Summary: Tengo todos los final fantasy que hay en el mercado, y cuando me entere que iba a salir un final fantasy por internet.. podeis imaginar la ilusion que tube! mas aun cuando hace ya un tiempo que me habia metido con los juegos on line (diablo y ultima on line).
Pros: Es un Final Fantasy
Cons: Pago mensual, formato completamente diferente al que nos tienen acostumbrados . . .
