Thrillville Review

IGN Entertainment
11 March 2010
  • Conclusion: Thrillville is not for everyone, but it is perfect for those gamers that always wanted to try a simulation but were intimidated by PC keyboard overlays and Excel-like charts of data. With twenty mini-games and a hundred or so interactive attractions, Thrillville makes it fun to be penny-wise (or actually care at all about finances in a campaign). PC sim veterans should steer clear, but all other park nuts should grab their tickets now to avoid the long lines.

Final Fantasy XI Review

IGN Entertainment
9 February 2008
  • Conclusion: Obviously, a game such as FFXI inspires mixed feelings. It’s the first MMO on the Xbox 360, a unique experience with hours of gameplay and a large variety of things to do, as well as the ability to coexist with hundreds of other players in a thriving world. And it’s important to note that it’s an open door into the long-running Final Fantasy universe, which has its own rewards. However, it’s also clear that FFXI isn’t all that it could be.

Final Fantasy XI

Xbox Evolved
31 January 2007
  • Summary: Final Fantasy XI is a stellar game with some great features, which will keep players hooked from the beginning they start playing. Casual gamers may be put off though by its steep difficulty curve, and tediousness at the very beginning. FFXI has a comprehensive Quest list, but features rather stale Missions in comparison, and is not a game to focus on just to end up completing a drab storyline.
  • Pros: It can get very addictive, high replay
  • Cons: Was amazing three years ago, age is showing.

  • Excerpt: The second of three mini-expansion episodes for FFXI is sizing up to be the silliest of the three. "A Moogle Kupo d'Etat: Evil in Small Doses" tells us a short story involving the world of moogles. The moogle in your own Mog House notices your living quarters are falling apart, so you're sent on a fetch quest. A few fetch quests later, and you're quickly on a quest to save all rent-a-room-running moogles from a gang of unruly thugs... who also happen to be moogles.

  • Excerpt: Before beginning the review proper, I need to caution the reader with two notes: one relevant to Square Enix, and one relevant to me, your humble reviewer. If you don't care about issues of bias or, say, the timeliness of this review, skip the next two paragraphs. Relevant to Square Enix, the fact is that even if the "Aht Urhgan" package was released in stores in April of 2006, the "Aht Urhgan" experience slowly evolved through bi-monthly content updates, as has been the...

Final Fantasy XI

one-gamer.com
28 February 2007
  • Conclusion: As an MMORPG, Final Fantasy XI is ace � fresher and funkier than World of Warcraft, but pales in the RPG light of Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. Once you�ve conquered the arduous sign-up process, there�s plenty to reward both Final Fantasy stalwarts and series newcomers. However, as an MMORPG, the game retains many of the genre�s endemic flaws, requiring a prohibitive investment of time and money that all but shuts out non-�hardcore� players.
