Summary: Just got this about a month ago, installed it and works great! The install for the ps2 client is actually shorter that i would have expected. I was online in under 2 hours. Graphics and UI for this game were made for the ps2 so it looks really great, even on the wide screen. I always thought Sony could have thrown in a network adapter in with this bundle.

Summary: if you are a gaming junkie, and spend more than the average person on your bum, I strongly reccommend this game. It has quirks in the sense of dealing with the slow paced start-up and aggravating times. Other than thatit's a very rewarding experience come end-game. The people can range from ignorant children to complete genius' discovering and understanding the games mechanics. All-in-all, it is another world. You feel as though you are your character.
Summary: It pains me to see that some of these reviews talk ill of this game. I read multiple reviews for this game before and after I had purchased the game on PC and when I also deployed like a fellow marine I bought the PS2 version. This game can not be judge at the low levels of 15 or so. The game is built for people to evolve the character they play in the world of Vana deil in a party.
Summary: I read the reviews about Final Fantasy XI for PS2 and I was worried whether or not it was worth the money. After purchasing the game, installing it, and then playing it I must say this game is awesome!!! I would definitely recommend you have a cable modem and not dial-up! And buy a simple USB keyboard for the PS2 it makes a huge difference in playing. They graphics are great and its fun playing with many different people from different parts of the world.
