The best MMORPG out there, but is it enough?

  • Summary: I've been playing FFXI for around a month now, and I have had mixed feelings on the game. This review is my opinion, so many will probably disagree with some of the things I will say in it. First off, I'll admit I love FF's, but for this review I won't let that alter what I think of the game (i.e. no automatic 10).

Plagued with annoying issues....but amazingly addictive

  • Summary: A decent MMORPG in the vein of previous FFs. The resemblance is there but make no mistake, this isn't a perfect game and takes some getting used to.
  • Pros: Highly social game, nice graphics, job system.
  • Cons: Forces you to party, moneymaking, repeated character and enemy models, extremely expensive (PS2).

  • Summary: FFXI has it's flaws. Well, okay, quite a few. I was sincerely hoping this would at least attempt to fix some of them. I have no idea what I was thinking. Not only did the customers who ordered the game as it came out have to run hours worth of upgrades to fix glitches in the expansion, most of the quests and items weren't available due to further problems.

  • Summary: Now that I've swallowed the price tag, ventured my way around the fabled world of Vana'diel, paid my first monthly fee and had a couple of months to really sink my teeth into the famed series' first expedition into internet gaming, I feel I'm justified in saying my first impressions were ultimately correct; there's something missing.

Beautiful to look at - crummy interface

  • Summary: Can't really say too much about the HDD component of this package, since its potential remains largely untapped. It's easy to install and it may be well supported in the future or it may not. Disappointed that none of the promised Sony pack-ins were present. On to FFXI... I was frankly astounded at the complexity and time it took to just set the game up. Between installing POE/Tetramaster, downloading patches, configuring accounts, etc.

First Real FF-XI Playstation2 Review on Epinions (updated)

4 April 2004
  • Summary: Horrible installation process.. Price was a bit high, but monthly fee is the worst part. Gameplay seems good so far. Verdict still out on storyline and fun factor.
  • Pros: Great animations and gameplay seems good so far; can play online with many other characters.
  • Cons: Installation process is odious; monthly fee is a bit high.

  • Excerpt: "...may or may not know, Final Fantasy has captivated the gaming world with its fantastic graphics from its early days in creation. It has expanded its routes from a 16bit cartridge game to the first disc games on the psx then moved on to the more enhanced ps2 now its entering the world of online gaming. Personnally i have not played on this game in particular, or any of its demonstration games but the stills of the game that i have seen take on all ...
  • Pros: Online gaming allows more interaction
  • Cons: can the fans enjoy it at a high cost?

Fun, but only for so long.

  • Summary: Never having played a MMORPG before, I figured FFXI would be the best place to start. I've played the game for two months now, and come away with mixed feelings. My intitial review of this game, posted on the IGNPS2 website, is based on early experiences, all of which were good. This review comprises a more well-rounded opinion after playing the game considerably longer.
