What level did you get to?

Level 11... at that point I just quit... I was very disappointed with the partying system which is allowed at level 10.

That means you saw maybe 0.1% of the game. I was to optimistic to say 1% Though you reached lv 15. Before lv 10 you dont have access to 99% of the game features.

You can get lv 6 with just running in town and never killing a mob.

Bah before lv 10 you cant even multiclass for different skills.

In all honesty that is pointless why continue playing a game that can not grab my attention at lower levels? I have to endure boredom... especially if I have to pay a sub?  How does that make sense... I am sorry the review was too short and you feel I do not have that right to review but in my generation we can tell already by the first few level's if the game is good or bad.  

Also, just because you're older does not mean you have superior taste or opinions. An aged eye for quality, goodness me!

In your generation?  I guess you guys are just that fucking good eh?  you didn't like the game at early levels...move on.  No need to defend your weak review.  Go play something else that your "generation" can tell is good in the first 11 levels.

So your writing your FULL REVIEW on level 1 - 11 and talking about how the abilities are meh when you only get part of your abilities at 30, you get another set when you level your 2nd class on the same character, and once that class is 15 you can get your job abilities?  Also the limit breaks are useless outside of FATES with large end bosses or instances.  You cannot start instances until level 15, that’s from the phase 2 which I did do some people said that this phase you have to be level 16. 

Also the limit breaks at level 11 are not the same as at level 50 which has been posted on the forums.  So how can you do your FULL REVIEW on 11 levels when you have to level to 50 twice to get the full abilities of your 2 classes and your job? 

You can look at current youtube videos of the games spells they show them all.  The only reason I searced for "FF ARR," because I felt something was amiss.  Upon further investigating around level 10 I noticed that the spells upon viewing the videos (higher level spells) in my opinion where mediocre and quite boring nothing amazing.  In other words there is absolutely no customization in spells or attacks it's the same all the time.  This is a okay for a game that last 10-60 hours of game play but you are talking about an mmorpg that people invest hours and hours.

What part of revamping a game is EVER simple?

Thanks for the full review, wish I could say it was well informed.

FFXIV ARR will by no means reshape the MMO genre. Clearly, it's not attempting to. But it's a damn fine effort. One of the more well done games we've seen in a while. 

 

If you want something "new and ingenious" you'll probably want to hang around some of the smaller, indie games. They can afford to tinker around and try new ideas as they are often attempting to cater to niche crowds. 

 

In any case, your "review" is rather pointless. 

"Effort," does not justify me spending my precious time with this game...

Who said you had to? If you're not up for taking a ride through a theme park, why would you try "..really really" hard to like it, then come here to deliver your "FULL REVIEW."

 

My point is not that you should appreciate the effort. Or that your opinion is wrong. But spouting that opinion as if it is an objective FULL REVIEW makes you look like a ranting fool. 

 

What did you want this game to be? XI-2? Or how about more "Immersive" and "Innovative?"

While we're at it, let's throw a few more vague meaningless terms on there. I honestly wish all games had more sheen. More oomph! A bit more flare! Originality and pazazz! 

Sorry as a consumer I do not need to appreciate anything the developers are not paying my bills.  Not being rude just saying...

Oh come now. Clearly since he is an older gentlemen, he knows whats best. 

 

Yoshi should delete the whole game, and give us Pong A Paddle Reborn! I hope he can deliver some real innovation and immersion. Shucks!

Thats right because you need all your abilities  at level 1 because your generation needs instance gratification.  Dude sorry but you have no credibility  because ANY MMO is very slow and boring the first few levels, EVEN WOW.  I was not starting to have fun in WoW til I hit level 18 and ran Dead mines.  I also started playing 3 weeks after vanilla launched.  If you want slow and boring go play UO and fight in  grave yard for a few weeks until you have enough skills to move to something harder.  Getting to level 15 is not that hard in FFXIV like someone else said 6 levels is spent running around town just so you get the idea behind the setting of the game.  Yea that can be boring for some if you are going to judge on a vendor trying to give you a setting you can say the same about Rift because that starting was SO SO in my book.

Once again, you miss my point. I'm glad your generation has superior opinions and all. But you could use a bit of help in the reading and comprehension department.

Fair enough, i would not bother to even visiting this topic if you did not use word Review. Those where clearly opinions.

Point is, all games are what you expect of them till you actually spend some time trying it (a day or so for mmos, at the very least)

I would agree that 1-2h in to a single player or online game is enough to judge that. But mmo games are build for a long game, and they usually start slow to introduce you to the game, world etc. Just call it a long and boring tutorial if you wish.

I didint gave the game much of a chance in Beta 1 just gave up after 1h of running around and decided its crap. Only till beta 3 that i actually gave the game a real spin past lv 15 all the way up to lv 30 that it actually hooked me and didint let go. I could not even play any other game for a week, i was having withdrawal symptoms. 

I didint have that much fun for a while, and i played it all all the way back to Meridian 59 and UO. In the end the real gimmicks are the features. As long as the game makes you immersed and glued to the screen then its doing something right. 

Many games this days dont. To many if you ask me. Devs are being lazy and often to depending on new features forgetting about making a virtual world not an online coop game.

Let me first state the game is amazingly detailed with beautiful creatures.  Though this is overshadowed by the creatures and enemies having no personality.  The world is eye candy but at closer inspection you realize it's just that, because the game has absolutely no personality on itself.  You would expect an enormous turtle to hide in its shell upon getting attacked or approached or perhaps maybe predators chasing prey.   Enemies are hindered by the environment at times and some just stay there awkwardly in between the games props.  The location of enemy placement is extremely flawed and at times awkward.

One of the most interesting aspects of the FF series is the combat system but in this game be prepared for some will have headaches if you are not use to this system. Let me first start off by saying you can not dodge any attacks.  When you encounter an enemy you either stand there or run away with the understanding that you can not cast spells while running BUT the enemy can?  For me that's absolutely fine the game uses a system that derives from it's previous successors and is true to it's origins.  Though there is a major flaw, you can not use any type of limit break and the spells are at best mediocre in design.  FF series is known for their flashy animations but all that is toned down.  There is some complexity but not enough to keep you hooked. Let's move on to raiding or instancing with other players.

Now here things get interesting, when the game originally came out in closed beta encounter's in parties had a huge backlash.  The reason being the enemies where not as convincing or difficult.  They stood in the same area and extremely predictable.  In various interviews they said they made some adjustments, this time enemies move and have more powerful attacks that can decimate an entire party.  Though the same complain is heard over and over... the encounters are amusingly unsatisfying. 

Questing is nothing original, lost princess to an alchemist asking for ingredients.  Though the main story line is rather entertaining and some the characters are just too freaking adorable, fans of this series know whom which I speak about.  The problem with questing is the overall design of the main areas.  They are just huge mazes and the map is overly complicated.  Console players be forewarned it is a complete nightmare and really not worth your time.  Wait for the PS4 in all honest truth.  

The game is eye candy and brings back some nostalgia but in a toned down sort of way... did that make sense?  Do I feel the game warrant's a subscription absolutely but does is deserve your time and effort absolutely no.  Money is never an issue to gamer's that have the money and want to experience something their own way but to some gamer's time is precious which you can not get a refund for.  So the question is presented to me... how do I rate this game.  

I really can't but from what I have experienced the game does not garner much of my attention especially with so many other games right now that are free and that I am actually enjoying.  The game has a different taste and as sour as it tastes to me it might just be sweet to someone else... yes... that would be the best way to describe this game. Sweet and Sour...

 

If you are smart console gamer wait till the PS4 comes out and if you are a PC gamer try to get into the beta by signing up you might just like it or completely hate it.

 

Hat's off to Naoki Yoshida for bringing back the game and being brave enough to try... If anything is true his use of "fan's" in every question asked to him is a testament that he is paying close attention.

 

 

First of all that was the most confusing read I have ever come across. Please learn some proper grammar before you try to inform the masses on you opinions.

Secondly... and im going to say this as nice as possible. WTF ARE YOU???! When one does a review, its only credit and validation is the the writers name. If Hank Aaron gives a review of the 2013 NY Yankees, I read it and respect his views. If Bill Murphy writes a review, I know his name and I've seen his previous works, so I read and enjoy. You on the other hand dont even use your real name. You are a nobody. No one cares what your review might be. For all we know you could be a mail clerk for Blizzard.

See your poor grasp on the grammar and writing of the english language, I have no confidence that you are qualified to give a sound review on a video game.

Please stick to whatever it is you do other than writing.

Oh come now. Clearly since he is an older gentlemen, he knows whats best. 

 

Yoshi should delete the whole game, and give us Pong A Paddle Reborn! I hope he can deliver some real innovation and immersion. Shucks!

See that's the thing...i'm in my late thirties, so unless he's forty plus and speaking for that generation (which he/she/it shouldn't be doing in the first place), then what he's saying is ludicrous.  What he/she/it sounds like, is a thirteen year old child writing a "full review" while gaining most of his/hers/its information from a bunch of youtube videos.  the entire thing is just bizarre.

FFXIV ARR will by no means reshape the MMO genre. Clearly, it's not attempting to. But it's a damn fine effort. One of the more well done games we've seen in a while. 

 

If you want something "new and ingenious" you'll probably want to hang around some of the smaller, indie games. They can afford to tinker around and try new ideas as they are often attempting to cater to niche crowds. 

 

In any case, your "review" is rather pointless. 

"Effort," does not justify me spending my precious time with this game...

Who said you had to? If you're not up for taking a ride through a theme park, why would you try "..really really" hard to like it, then come here to deliver your "FULL REVIEW."

 

My point is not that you should appreciate the effort. Or that your opinion is wrong. But spouting that opinion as if it is an objective FULL REVIEW makes you look like a ranting fool. 

 

What did you want this game to be? XI-2? Or how about more "Immersive" and "Innovative?"

While we're at it, let's throw a few more vague meaningless terms on there. I honestly wish all games had more sheen. More oomph! A bit more flare! Originality and pazazz! 

Sorry as a consumer I do not need to appreciate anything the developers are not paying my bills.  Not being rude just saying...

Once again, you miss my point. I'm glad your generation has superior opinions and all. But you could use a bit of help in the reading and comprehension department. 

Not being rude... not really "wanting" to pay attention to your point especially when you include "should" and "effort" in the same sentence.  I really don't care... you either grab my attention by creating something new that separates yourself or just keep it as is.  In all honest they game will fail, and when it does I will be the first one to post on here... told you so.  

Now he's got that crystal ball. It's a real MMORPG.com classic right here.

What level did you get to?

Level 11... at that point I just quit... I was very disappointed with the partying system which is allowed at level 10.

That means you saw maybe 0.1% of the game. I was to optimistic to say 1% Though you reached lv 15. Before lv 10 you dont have access to 99% of the game features.

You can get lv 6 with just running in town and never killing a mob.

Bah before lv 10 you cant even multiclass for different skills.

In all honesty that is pointless why continue playing a game that can not grab my attention at lower levels? I have to endure boredom... especially if I have to pay a sub?  How does that make sense... I am sorry the review was too short and you feel I do not have that right to review but in my generation we can tell already by the first few level's if the game is good or bad.  

Also, just because you're older does not mean you have superior taste or opinions. An aged eye for quality, goodness me! 

Im quite sure im older than you with vastly bigger experience in mmorpg. I checked your age in your profile. 

You can google my nick and you can find i was running guilds in almost every mmorpg since the beginning of the genre.

Only recently (2-3years) i started to skip all the trash mmo generation of the D quality products.

Fair enough, i would not bother to even visiting this topic if you did not use word Review. Those where clearly opinions.

Point is, all games are what you expect of them till you actually spend some time trying it (a day or so for mmos, at the very least)

I would agree that 1-2h in to a single player or online game is enough to judge that. But mmo games are build for a long game, and they usually start slow to introduce you to the game, world etc. Just call it a long and boring tutorial if you wish.

I didint gave the game much of a chance in Beta 1 just gave up after 1h of running around and decided its crap. Only till beta 3 that i actually gave the game a real spin past lv 15 all the way up to lv 30 that it actually hooked me and didint let go. I could not even play any other game for a week, i was having withdrawal symptoms. 

I didint have that much fun for a while, and i played it all all the way back to Meridian 59 and UO. In the end the real gimmicks are the features. As long as the game makes you immersed and glued to the screen then its doing something right. 

Many games this days dont. To many if you ask me. Devs are being lazy and often to depending on new features forgetting about making a virtual world not an online coop game.

Did you play on pc or Ps4, because honestly it feels completely different from both platforms though it stills stands... I just can not get into the game...

If you are hoping that the Golden Saucer will be introduced or that limit breaks will be available immediately well... sorry fans of FF they took what was suppose to be a simple revamping and just made it even more complicated.

Let me first state the game is amazingly detailed with beautiful creatures.  Though this is overshadowed by the creatures and enemies having no personality.  The world is eye candy but at closer inspection you realize it's just that, because the game has absolutely no personality on itself.  You would expect an enormous turtle to hide in its shell upon getting attacked or approached or perhaps maybe predators chasing prey.   Enemies are hindered by the environment at times and some just stay there awkwardly in between the games props.  The location of enemy placement is extremely flawed and at times awkward.

One of the most interesting aspects of the FF series is the combat system but in this game be prepared for some will have headaches if you are not use to this system. Let me first start off by saying you can not dodge any attacks.  When you encounter an enemy you either stand there or run away with the understanding that you can not cast spells while running BUT the enemy can?  For me that's absolutely fine the game uses a system that derives from it's previous successors and is true to it's origins.  Though there is a major flaw, you can not use any type of limit break and the spells are at best mediocre in design.  FF series is known for their flashy animations but all that is toned down.  There is some complexity but not enough to keep you hooked. Let's move on to raiding or instancing with other players.

Now here things get interesting, when the game originally came out in closed beta encounter's in parties had a huge backlash.  The reason being the enemies where not as convincing or difficult.  They stood in the same area and extremely predictable.  In various interviews they said they made some adjustments, this time enemies move and have more powerful attacks that can decimate an entire party.  Though the same complain is heard over and over... the encounters are amusingly unsatisfying. 

Questing is nothing original, lost princess to an alchemist asking for ingredients.  Though the main story line is rather entertaining and some the characters are just too freaking adorable, fans of this series know whom which I speak about.  The problem with questing is the overall design of the main areas.  They are just huge mazes and the map is overly complicated.  Console players be forewarned it is a complete nightmare and really not worth your time.  Wait for the PS4 in all honest truth.  

The game is eye candy and brings back some nostalgia but in a toned down sort of way... did that make sense?  Do I feel the game warrant's a subscription absolutely but does is deserve your time and effort absolutely no.  Money is never an issue to gamer's that have the money and want to experience something their own way but to some gamer's time is precious which you can not get a refund for.  So the question is presented to me... how do I rate this game.  

I really can't but from what I have experienced the game does not garner much of my attention especially with so many other games right now that are free and that I am actually enjoying.  The game has a different taste and as sour as it tastes to me it might just be sweet to someone else... yes... that would be the best way to describe this game. Sweet and Sour...

 

If you are smart console gamer wait till the PS4 comes out and if you are a PC gamer try to get into the beta by signing up you might just like it or completely hate it.

 

Hat's off to Naoki Yoshida for bringing back the game and being brave enough to try... If anything is true his use of "fan's" in every question asked to him is a testament that he is paying close attention.

 

 

First of all that was the most confusing read I have ever come across. Please learn some proper grammar before you try to inform the masses on you opinions.

Secondly... and im going to say this as nice as possible. WTF ARE YOU???! When one does a review, its only credit and validation is the the writers name. If Hank Aaron gives a review of the 2013 NY Yankees, I read it and respect his views. If Bill Murphy writes a review, I know his name and I've seen his previous works, so I read and enjoy. You on the other hand dont even use your real name. You are a nobody. No one cares what your review might be. For all we know you could be a mail clerk for Blizzard.

See your poor grasp on the grammar and writing of the english language, I have no confidence that you are qualified to give a sound review on a video game.

Please stick to whatever it is you do other than writing.

Touche...

On a side note. This guy's 'original' review went on to complain about this game being F2P. He edited later as I brought light to this and it made his argument look shallow.

This is exactly why ARR should 'not' be F2P or even B2P.

If the P2P model even eliminates this guy, I consider it worth it.

His generation, from what I can gather, is all encompasing.  His are those who should decide for the rest.  It is upon his shoulders alone to decide what should be reviewed and what should not be, when such a thing will fail and when to remove your privaleges to be heard.

For he is the OP, he watches out for us in his best interests so that we too must agree with him.

 

You've changed my mind, OP.  FFXIV is crap because you say so, that's all I need...really.

Interesting! Perhaps he has an agenda against F2P and was biased from the start.

Regardless, I think if you are going to write a review of a game you have to push through at least half the levels. If he couldn't manage past lvl 10 then he shouldn't have tried to write a review, plain and simple.
