Summary: I would give it 5 stars, however being not the full expansion it is still a tad over priced not by much, but a little bit. Other than that everything shipped fine, I got this earlier than expected.
I have played a lot of FFXI over the last 10 years and this is a good expansion.

Summary: The expansion itself is good. The perfectionist elitist attitude it has brought out from other people regarding the new content such as Skirmish and Delve on the other hand is a very hefty cause for my current disinterest in this game. This game really needs to go free to play with a cash shop and keep up with the times. The end game grindfest is about as bad as any other MMO out there. The job selection is nice. The graphics on the new areas is average.
Summary: the graphics are not next gen but they are still good. Although This game requires u to party up in order to get the best xp you'll find alot of the community willing to help. A ton of content that can last for years.
Just bought this to reload it after replacing my 360.

Summary: I love the game. It's in it's twilight years and I've rage quit more times than I like to admit, but if you like MMO's this was the standard. Complex, party oriented play style. A rich history and backstory. I have been playing for years!
Summary: I had been playing this game for almost 10 years now and still enjoy it. The positives is being able to change jobs and develop different skills (i.e. wood working, cloth craft, mining etc) The other thing Ive enjoyed is support for a game pad like the Logitech game pad for PC and the X-box game pad for basic functions such as movement and attacking and spells or and communication.
Summary: I played this game for 8 years. I also read the message boards for the game FF XI. The only thing that I did not like too well, is when FF XI, made it, so one needs a secure CC, some people complained their CC would no longer work with the game. I was lucky my debit cards worked, but let's just say you have go to a web site to varafiy your credit card. I agree when I first started playing I had no idea it would take so long to download.
Summary: Final Fantasy XI is Square Enix's first major foray into the MMORPG market. And, just as you would expect with most Final Fantasy games, its pretty fun and pretty challenging. The gameplay is addictive, and being able to work with other players, friend or foe, just makes the experience better. As well, the Xbox 360 version does not require a Gold membership, but even if you do, you still must pay SE $12.99 (I think) a month.
