Summary: Microsoft has a very antagonistic relationship with Square Enix. This has led to my inability to activate the new game on my current Xbox Live user account. This is not the fault of Square Enix or Microsoft. However, because of their differences I am completely unable to rectify my situation. Details about their difficulties are numerous and complicated.
Summary: This is one of my favorite games to play and the codes that were needed for the game do not work and are a waste of $. I might as well have bought a completely new game. Highly upset about this. Not able to even play!
Summary: Bought this game on Gamestop because my son had received a gift card. Had to spend more than at Amazon, had to wait for it to arrive (no free two-day shipping with Prime), and when it finally arrived we spent hours trying to figure out how to install it. Apparently the company, Square Enix, is in the middle of restructuring their membership accounts, so you do not follow the directions in the packet.
Summary: This game was designed to be a huge time-waster, it can take DAYS of constant playing (19~ hours of day of playing, then 5 hours of sleep, followed by 19~ hours of playing, then 5 hours of sleep, just to do anything at all in this game.) That kills your relationships with loved ones (such as spouses, kids, pets, family, even work...) and I know of a few people that have gotten divorced because of this game.
Summary: I was sadden today when I go to play my new game and it will not play. Not because there is anything wrong with the Disc. It's Because after registering the game. It tells me I will still have to pay a monthly fee and it will not let me get past the opening screen when I try and play it in my XBOX 360.
Summary: The game itself is average. Dated, not very user friendly or intuitive but it does maintain a rabid cult-following as such is the usually the case with games like these. The sign-up/login process associated with PlayOnline/Square Enix is inexcusable, however. I have never felt such frustration trying to establish a game account. I am an avid fan of MMORPGs and have setup accounts with Blizzard, Trion, NCSoft and many other companies with little to no frustration.
Summary: I spent 3 hrs setting up account and jumping thru the square enix playonline site. I have yet to be login or play this game yet due to the fact the site keeps telling me I must link my acct to the xbox to play, which im unable to do. This game is too much off a headache to pay for and play online. Any help would be appreciated.
Summary: I just got this game in the mail and I can't even play it! During the initial install for the PlayOnline viewer I keep getting an error code: POL-1160 which is network busy/configure network settings. I know my Internet is fine but the PlayOnline servers won't connect to update the version which is making it so I can't play the game at all. This is extremely frustrating. All the forums that mention this code say it resolves itself. I've reset my modem, reset my Xbox.
Summary: I like to think of myself as a patient and very passive person. Having said as much I lost my cool with everything necessary just to play this one game. So I finally get this game today and figure this is going to be great, I open up the case and see all of these awesome paper inserts and codes and think to myself, "no sweat it's just like any other Xbox 360 game".
