  • Excerpt: At the end of 2008, at the FFXI FanFest (and the Japanese VanaFest), Square Enix unveiled plans for three downloadable mini-expansions that would cost 10.00 USD. They announced that the three expansions would be released one at a time throughout the span of 2009. A Crystalline Prophecy: Ode of Life Bestowing is the first of those three expansions. This expansion tells the tale of a young boy and girl, separated by the tragedy of war, and the aftermath that comes of it.

  • Excerpt: I have to come out, before saying anything about Final Fantasy XI, that I've never played a massively-multiplayer online RPG before this game. I never gave them a chance, because I was scared I'd play occasionally then become addicted. Final Fantasy XI Online for the Xbox 360 probably isn't the best game to get an impression on MMORPG's, because as both a game and an MMORPG, it falls short. As a game, it's boring.

  • Conclusion: Final Fantasy XI is the first Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game to hit the Xbox 360, developed by Square Enix; Final Fantasy XI uses their PlayOnline service as a gateway to a huge online world. Gamers from all around the world inhabit the same servers which combine the Xbox 360, PC and PS2 players to form a gigantic player base.

  • Conclusion: 12 /20 Square Enix signe là son tout premier MMORPG et il faut avouer que la firme s’en tire plutôt bien. Vana’Diel est gigantesque, l’univers est cohérent, les missions et autres quêtes sont nombreuses et le tout s’appuie tout de même sur un scénario qui a le mérite d’être plus poussé que dans les autres jeux du genre.
  • Pros: Un univers cohérent, Gigantesque, Possibilités quasi infinies, Les trois extensions, Un scénario assez développé, Bande sonore, La communauté, Le charisme des personnages, Un mois gratuit…
  • Cons: Mais un investissement conséquent, Plus de 5Go nécessaires, L’installation, Les cinquante premières heures, Graphiquement c’est relativement moche, Menus peu pratiques, Peu agréable à jouer sans clavier

  • Conclusion: Ce FFXI sur 360 reste donc fidèle à l'original : l'ambiance des Final Fantasy est bien là, avec un character design stylé et une bande son tout de suite identifiable. Les qualités intrinsèques du titre sont bien présentes : durée de vie et richesse du monde à parcourir. Le titre ne profite cependant pas des capacités techniques de la console et fait preuve de nombreuses lourdeurs d'ergonomie.
