Summary: I purchased this used (not the greatest idea on my part.) While the HDD works wonderfully, the game itself, since it's already used, would have been nearly impossible to use due to the product key having already been registered.
Summary: This game was my introduction to MMOs and as many I came to it simply because I was a fan of the series. I have to say I do not regret getting it and playing it for nearly 4 years. I made many friends and had so many great nights and moments. This game is a "hardcore" MMO done right.
Summary: While still adding cool features this expansion fell short for me and I don't know if it's directly related but I quit the game a few months after but that might have been due to general exhaustion.
Excerpt: Since it's original release, Final Fantasy XI has changed so drastically, that it is practically an entirely different game together. In fact, I can guarantee that if you played this game at release, you would agree that it has a completely different feel.
Summary: I started playing this game around the time the Xbox360 version came out. It is a lot of fun. You will have to do a lot of grinding. It will take you a lot longer to get to lv75 then it does it WoW for example.
Summary: There is a lovely game full of depth, underneath the huge learning curve and horendous monotony. If yo have the patience and the time (I DIDNT cause of my classes and work),its not to late to get this and have it take over your life. (for better or worse)
Summary: Don't believe the critics when it comes to this game!!... I have been playing this game for a couple of weeks and at first, yes i thought WF!?! "how am i supposed to do anything with hardly any armour, an onion knife and 50gil". BUT the more you play, the better it gets.
Summary: The good thing of owning the PS2 version of FFXI is that you no longer need to worry about hardware specifications that much. All you need to do is buy a compatible PS2 Network Adaptor (sold seperately), plug it in and play.
A solid expansion, although a bit disappointing...

Summary: Chains of Promathia is a fairly solid expansion released by Square Enix for their Final Fantasy XI MMORPG. With this second major expansion (Rise of Zilart being the first expansion) for the series, SE (Square Enix) attempted to introduce several new missions and quests that may be attempted by...
Summary: I want to clarify a few points for Amazon buyers who wish to purchase this game used. FFXI is a unique game in the fact that once the account expires you cannot play it ever again. The game Key will be broken and will not work ever again. This will require you to purchase the game again.
