What do i think?


I called in vacation for this week after playing during early access and have been playing well over 10 hours a day since.


Need i say more? lol


I could say i had the foresight as in "saw this coming a mile away" and that my being able to log in effortlessly early morning and playing trouble free all day till night, but no that wasn't entirely the case. Truth be told i just needed a break from work and this seemed like cool game to chill out with, little did i know it was going to turn into full on obsession. lol


Been a staycation to remember I'll tell you that, one for the books.

There are a couple issues that i did not have, i only needed to use 1 code in 1 website and that was it. 

And it just takes 1 minute for the servers to open a slot for you (even when it says there is a queue), this is after you have a character.

I'm in one of the servers that isnt so popular arround the web and still there are LOTS of ppl. I dont remember seeing this amount of ppl arround  in tera or aion (i know they  have channels).

It wasnt the most smooth launch, but all this problems will be solved, as they are mostly physical limitations and not ingame bugs.

I think a 5.1 score for the scope of the review so far is pretty fair.  Love or Hate the game it's hard to argue that this games launch has been very poorly handled all around.



Not for everyone, only people trying to get on during prime time (which is a very high percentage i'm sure) but in Square's defence, if you launched a bomb, revamped it, relaunched it a few years later, would you honestly put allot of effort and resources into systems for a "just in case we become the most popular mmo on the planet scenario".


No,  no one in their right mind would.


So yeah they were caught off guard, the game rocks. Trust me this game is worth the wait for anyone who has been having trouble getting in.


Even WoW, (i was there) they turned everything completely off  for 2 to 3 days and even then they still couldn't get things right, shite was unstable, servers were offline more than they were online for weeks on end. It was ludicrous. That was a disgrace.


Here were talking a little over a week and sounds like they'll have things well under control.


Had the wow fiasco happened to me this week yea id be pretty PO'd right now, tis my vacation, but that was not the case at all, super stable, extremely solid, servers always up and online. Very polished.


Yes, i was logging in off prime time and wouldn't dare log out until i was done for the day. In the whole week of playing well over 10 hours day, i had one crash and that was after a 14 hour session.


I for one couldn't be more pleased with their decisions to cap things and avoid things being completely unstable and crashing all over the place. It would have literally ruined my staycation. lol

1) Not a real review

2) Terrible Acroynym


Does the staff have a vendetta against this game? i also dont see nearly as much moderation on the forums compared to when gw2 launched.  

Most memorable games: AoC(Tryanny PvP), RIFT, GW, GW2, Ragnarok Online, Aion, FFXI, FFXIV, Secret World, League of Legends (Silver II rank)

I am sorry to see this happen. Luckily most times I have not had an issue. I was unable to create a new character for a while and was not able to log into that hero when I tried to play the next day. I am playing on JP worlds because NA/EU is full. 

I just did a marathon 14 hour play yesterday where I did take breaks and did not log off. A couple of those were longer than 30 minutes but none an hour or more. I would have been sad to see me logged out but I accept it as I do in other games. I really have enjoyed the game though. The main story does bother me a bit but I will live with it. The issues with worlds makes no sense to me and I have to say that I still have had less problems than when WoW released.

Bah... Tried to buy digital download and SE has it turned off lol.  I could go buy it on PS3 but id really like to play it on PC vs PS3. 


Any PS3'ers out there?  How is an MMO on console?  I have my doubts but I dunno....

The server issues and their lack of anything more than a stock, woops email has pretty much put me into the not subbing for this game group. I'll play, if I can,  until my time runs out, but beyond that this games total lack of actual playablility and their beta's being more marketing and less actual work to improve the game, has me done with this title and SE pretty much for good. Personally I don't care what people say about give them time, they ran out of time when they proved they didn't care even back in open beta when I submitted error reports and they didn't respond to my support ticket for three days.

I've give SE way to much credit and allowed them to many second chances as is. Games like this honestly need a refund button built in so that developers that screw up this much can actually be forced to watch their profits disappear and their companies go bankrupt, yep at this point I want SE to just go away and never return.

I am playing on PS3 and it is indeed a blast to play, no technical issues so far. Gameplay is very good. Using a USB Keyboard and Gamepad for the game.


I think Robert may have sadly rage quit at the loading screen as he does not describe any gameplay. Stick with it Robert, the game is a good one if you can sort out your technical problems, if PC an issue review on PS3, it might be better experience for you.

Sorry but what you do is bad journalism. You keep the old rating of 5.1 up in big letters beside a review for a new FFXIV. 1.0 is dead. I have been there and it has nothing to do with ARR.

So people who do not spend much time on this site just looking for a review just see FFXIV, rating 5.1, bad launch, must be crap.

Is it eally that hard to reset till your review is finished ? Disappointing to say the least.

Nice to see someone slamming SQEN for both the crappy launch (it's far worse than the norm and this excuse is wearing thin anyways) and their horrific preorder system.  if you bought from them it was even worse requiring multiple accounts, hopping around between sites, yet another site for the 3rd party that charges your card (and your code emails getting flagged as junk due to just how cheeseball that 3rd party is).  Once the login/server issues are resolved nobody will even remember they happened til the next big game has yet another crappy release and fanboys justify it with the "well it was worse in FFXIV!!!1!!!" nonsense.


I would like to see equal objectivity and criticsm levied upon the game itself.  It's new.  It's fun (for now).  It's pretty in a way - and simplistic in a way.  The game does some stuff in interesting ways.  Ultimately it's a fairly stripped down post WoW clone and the question is, will this game have anything different to justify the sub and keep players around a while or is it going to be SWTOR 2.0 (huge release, huge droppoff, eventually the target of ridicule - MMORPG players are fanboys one day and venomous trolls the next sometimes).

Premium MMORPGs do not feature built-in cheating via cash for gold pay 2 win. PLAY to win or don't play.

I really want to play this game with my wife......but since there is no CS support for the past week or two, I can not recover my original collectors edition that I payed $70 for 3 years ago...and I won't buy the game again

Tried resetting password..all that...seems some one (not me) changed my birthdate....weird huh?

Now my help tickets are being replied as "sorry we must delete your ticket since we could not get to it in 48 hours" and I call the non-free phone support and it's busy.

I am glad for all you who are in playing...just don't log out I guess

Review In Progress?  Really?


So all you have to do to be a reviewer on MMORPG.COM is take a couple of lousy screen shots and then bitch about the server issues?

This article is anything but a review. It's a gigantic whine about how someone got the short end of the stick and keeps facing god knows what errors.

The only day i had issues with Error 1017 was on launch day (the 27th). For the rest my queues have been limited to 10 - 20 people at most. I haven't had any other error whatsoever.

For reference, i'm playing on a Euro server, logging in the early afternoon.

It's kinda unfair to stick the "review" tag on an article when you can't even get past the login-screen and got frustrated.

I consider myself very lucky though.

Despite all of the 3102s 90000s 1017s and so on error-wise. The game is fantastic. I honestly went in just to have fun with casual play. FFXIV delivered. Not really sure what end game is like, but I've already gotten way over my money's worth. The story and Feel of the game make it something special. It really draws you in. The world of FFXIV just has that liveliness that some gamers will absolutely love. I'll admit its not a game for everyone. The combat is very generic and the story is pretty common to other Final Fantasy games (also there is very little voice acting). Currently put in over 100hours of gameplay and only level 30 with a few other classes slightly leveled. Have enjoyed every bit of it. When Square Enix fixes the issues for NA servers FFXIV ARR may be looking at a bright and healthy future. Maybe not the most popular game ever, but I believe much entertainment is to be had in the world they created.

Not really a review is the recounting and opinions of the reviewers experience with a game,if the game is nothing but a login screen and errors for days on end then that is certainly a valid review.

But it's also a review in progress once the login issues and errors are solved you will get a review of the games content too.

I've played this game since the 2nd Closed Beta, giving it a try, a chance, to see what everyone seems to love about it, but to quote Tom hanks from "Big", I don't get it.


Now granted, I've played SOOOOOOO many MMO's, pretty much any & everything AAA & quite a few F2P's since Runescape, so I'm more than a wee bit jaded, but aside from the trademark Square FF feel, there is nothing here that hasn't been done a million times elsewhere, better. 


It feels, even looks a bit, like Aion 2.0. Maybe I've been spoiled by game like Tera's visual awesomeness but the graphics look dated. No, visuals alone do not a great game make, but it has a decidedly generic Kill x # of y, take this there, talk to Person Zero quest system with very little variety, the opt-in instant-join public group quest mechanic that everyone's using, some cool cutscenes & voice acting, if you're into that sort of thing, & granted, really great music, but that's pretty much it. Yes, I know, the fanboys are lapping it up like fresh cake batter but if you're not wearing those "ZOMGFF11!!!!11!!"-colored glasses, the hype & hoopla, the game is blah.


The worst thing about the game, in my opinion, is the archaic outdated skill system. Where's the customization? I'm used to there being more to it than just 'Hit Level X, get Skill Y, add Attribute point here', especially after games like Aion, Rift, The Secret World, etc, that just let you run wild while tweaking your char. The skill system almost feels like an afterthought, like so much time, effort & money were put into the look & music & style & story that there's no real substance as far as skill customization. Think my highest level char was 21 so maybe that got/gets better later with some more levels but I don't see any incentive to do that. 


I think this game is benefiting from 1: no real new AAA competition at the moment & 2: a massive amount of FF fanboys. I love the series, but besides that gorgeous soundtrack & again, that FF "feel", this game doesn't offer me anything that I can't get more of somewhere else. Maybe there are people who are satisfied with this game, but I'm NOT one of them, & neither are the group that I usually play with. I just need more than sparkly RP fluff. 


So if you're not a FF fanatic, or your idea of a deep play experience involves more than cute chibi characters, catgirls & cutscenes, you can go ahead & skip this & wait for ArcheAge or Black Desert or go back to whatever you were playing before, unless you're spectacularly bored, there's really not much to see here. 


P.S: Feel free to rant & pout & flame all you want but that won't change my opinion, or the fact that while it IS a huge incalculable improvement over its first iteration, & is not, I repeat NOT a terrible game, it's not as special as the Square fans think it is either.

Every problem players are mad about comes down to network problems. As an IT guy all I can say is you cant always know the loads you are going to get till you go live. SE could have done a lot more on this end of things but when it comes to the game... I am more then glad to wait out their very fixable problems. Best MMO I have played since WoW. Give this game a few major updates and this game will be  a monster. Im having a blast.
