To fight a necromancer is to see your afterlife should you lose...

10/26/06 2:22:51 PM#41
a fair review.. some scores higher than I would have given them but others lower..

honestly I played the game for a year but found it not really to my liking... I'm a very "I want to do this" type and "why can't I do this?" and reasons like "because everyone else says you can't" just aren't good enough for me..

mana-burn parties would never have come into existence had someone not asked the question of "why"... "out of the box" thinking is not a common thing in FFXI though... to that effect, what works works well but due to the games rather brutal punishment of failure few people are willing to take a risk.

I left FFXI around 2 years ago, maybe more.. SWG introduced a world where solo'ing was possible and for a while that alone made it a good game.. then I moved to EQ2 and finally WoW, but I did miss FFXI until I re-activated my subscription. Honestly my 2nd go around I didn't get higher than around 10th level because I knew the future LFG hell that was to come.. I spent a lot of time fishing and playing the AH and it got old fast. I was in one of those HMN linkshells too but the thought of the grind was just too much..

anywho, the depiction of FFXI in the review is accurate enough to give people a good idea.. it truly is a *HEAVILY* social networking necessary game and it requires a pretty big investiment of consequitive blocks of time. If you can do both of those the game will be good for you.. if you can't, move on and don't try it there are lots of other mmo's out there better suited to a more casual playstyle.

I personaly enjoy playing this game...

that was a good review btw...

But.....for those who dislike this game please tired of hearing "this game takes to long" "people in this game arnt new player friendly" blah blah blah

most pro players expect you to have at least read a guide so you know what your doing, and expect to know you can type...

i personaly hate dealing with new players that dont even try to make full words...

"how do u heal?" "type /heal or press H on the keyboard..."


but off of that,this game does take lots of time so you gotta make sure you have 3+ hours a day to play to get a good amount of things done.

and i have had personal experiance, most people hate players who beg for gil (myself im poor constantly x,x)

Linkshells are a key part of having fun in this game.

this game IS almost complete partying after about 25+ (unless your a beastmaster or MAYBE puppetmaster)

but please PLEASE, when you talk use words that have ALL the letters and dont consist of NUMBERS PLEASE...its so hard to comunicate with players when you do and trying to explain to new players about things when they dont use all the words in a sentence makes you just /walk away.....

thats about all i can think of >,o


OH and i enjoy starting over and leveling to 30 and such so fun for me :D (just started over again)

if anyone lands on searph when starting just ask for help from Okima and im sure i can do something.

I was going to restart my subscription to this game, but after installing it all over again I found out that my game KEY has expired, now they want me to buy the same game again.... I can guarantee them it's not going to happen, I enjoyed it when I played, just like most every other MMO I've played, but I'm not going to buy the game twice and pay a monthly subscription for what they offer... It's not that good!

Especially when my game KEY for other games never have expired even after longer absenses from the game then I've had from FFXI. I don't care about them deleting my characters, I would most likely have done so myself, but they went way beyond that...

So, if you want to take some time of from the game, make sure you know how long you have before your game KEY expires, not just before they delete your characters...

Perhaps tomorrow will be better.

Most of the review was pretty much bang on.One point i would like to mention about the majority of gamers in general.Too many people in there complaints are worried about time???Why are you playign any game at all if you are worried about time?You are suppose to be in there having some fun and teaming up with other players.

It always becomes very imminent to me that players are in some kinda hurry to romp through any game,why is this?IMO that proves how bad a game is ,if you just want to whip through it without enjoying it.

If/when your time limit is up for the day,so what,logoff the game and continue it again when you have the time.This is not at work where your being paid to complete so much by end day.If your bound to a LS and playing with other players then yes you have to commit time to  them to accomplish anything,otherwise you shouldnt be playing a MMO but rather play a free asian solo grindfest or play FPS's.

This game has been and IS designed for group play,so don't ever ridicule it because it's not solo friendly.Solo friendly games i have seen take very little effort to design and usually have terrible content.Fps's are the only genre that is truly designed properly for solo play.If you like to play solo there is amillion asian games or try quake/unreal tournament/serious sam[lol][funny game]/call of duty there is a ton of options.

I myself flip flop from party based games to solo based games to keep my interest going,i think others should follow the same routine to keep from ridiculing games that cant solo or are very time consuming.

For the life of me i can't figure why i would want a game to finish super fast if its a game i enjoy alot.The majority of people i know that truly enjoy a game,pretty much want it to last forever.

I also want to point out that your players are NOT deleted after a cetain time frame,only YOU can delete them.If you deleted them then why the heck are you blaming squenix for your stupidity?I have been offline for a year and still re-activated all my players.If it's past a year you just email them and they can still re activate a player,but no you cannot bring back deleted players lmao,that's your fault.

No they are still copyright of Square-Enix, EVERYTHING on your account is also owned by Square-Enix (ingame name, items etc). Also show the pics WITHOUT the logo on them (since you say you took the screenshots), you have only shown the pics that ALREADY are linked to on this very site (that have in the corner along with copyright info).

Uhm, bit late in reply.. haven't really followed the thread... but still better then not bothering (or being able) to read what is being said...

I never said I deleted my characters, I haven't ... what I said is that I wouldn't mind if they would delete my characters after not being active for more then a year (since I would probably do so myself) rather then being told to buy a new key after reinstalling everything ... nothing was mentioned about an option for reactivating the account, if that's a possibility then I might consider going back to this game, enjoyed my time in it...

After 3 months of inactivity all characters are deleted on the account, there was one campaign last year that let you activate account & get back your characters (I think, dont remmember too much of it).
For the numerous keys for account AND game I am not sure how they are handled, if you canceled the playonline-account you need to buy a new game.

Square-Enix really need to take lessons from other mmorpgs in regards to keeping character records & account keys (FFXI uses four(!) different cd-keys for a single account, that is 3 too many).

Nah, I don't care if I'd have to type in 200 account keys to activate my account (well, it would get real tedious, but that's besides the point), what bothers me is that they want me to buy the game again. I don't have any of the expansions, except for rise of zilarth (believe that's the name), and they do have those nice boxed sets that include the old game plus all expansions, so it's not like it's undoable, but I wanted to see if I could get back into the game before I did that... and now I think it's just not going to happen.

Not when a game like Anarchy Online even has all my characters fully intact after 2+ years of complete inactivity, and no BS about buying a new game key.

Customer service in FFXI is rather laughable. GM's are seemingly powerless to do anything. If you trade an item and it disappears, that item is gone forever, and it won't be getting replaced. While billing issues can usually be resolved with great efficiency, in-game problems are normally just ignored. It can be extremely frustrating when a repeat botter is constantly reported, and no action is taken to prevent these illegal activities from going on.

One other thing of interest is the fact that Square Enix will nullify your content ID, which is essentially deleting your character, if you stop playing for more than three months. Considering inactive characters aren't really affecting their server, it seems peculiar that they would not want to secure their customer's satisfaction by just leaving their character alone, at least for a longer amount of time. Games like Dark Age of Camelot have kept characters forever and it's absolutely laughable that Square Enix does not.


Just wanna point out that the above information is no longer valid. SE does not delete characters anymore. Also GM's have become a bit more player friendly. Now if you lose an item you CAN call a GM to get it back, and they do take botter's seriously. This score needs to be brought up.

Sorry, read the review... and its rather off key an not entirely factual.

This game should be reviewed again without someone racist towards the game, in whole or just partly.

Dont use this review to decide not to play, look how long ago the review was even.

this game was designed in the wake of EQ1, so it has a lot of EQ1 aspects.  Even the not so fun "level down" feature that if you die close to the bottom of your exp pool then you'll De-level. the xp loss at high levels is horrid if you die.  As said, if you don't bring 6+ people along with you that will play at the exact same times then trying to get a pickup group in this game is about 2 to 4 hour wait at level 40+.  Needless to say this game is very anti-casual. 

this game lacks solo gameplay bad, the only 2 classes that seem to solo OK is redmage and beastmaster.  other than that it sucks.  But even if you do solo, the level grind in this game is just crazy bad, ala EQ1 style.  Grind until you are blue in the face, the only good thing is the down times aren't quite as bad as EQ1.  but they are still pretty close.

Good review nonetheless...
