Strange review, they did not say anything about the boring quests (and they are very, very, very boring, add fate farming - and no, they are bullshit compared to dynamic events in GW2!). Over all the leveling experience feels a little grindy and dull. The world feels tiny with a lot of zoning and invisible walls.

And then they leave out the crafting, which is fantastic. GW2 has a very comfortable system with cool features, but it is nothing compared to the crafting they have in FFXIV.

Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy shit we don't need.

It looked like there was going to be one more RIP and they decided to drop it so skipped discussing crafting. (which for me, was sort of boring and I lost interest a couple of hours into it)  There are not nearly enough "traditional" quests in the game to level 1-50 much less repeat on another class. So FATE grinding is your friend and I'm not overly fond of FATEs. Dungeon queues only pop fast if you're a healer. My score would be a 6, maybe 6.5.

Like most new games this site will give this Japanese WOW clone and GW2 wanna be, a high score. I remember Bill on the night of GW2 release actually in tears on the live stream blabbing or should that be blubbing about how great that game was. I just could'nt believe it , i thought to my self this guy is a great actor he should be in Hollywood.

There isn't a thing I'd change about this game.  I can't stand people that say it's WoW all over again...they obviously haven't try to level a second or third class/job to 50.  The quests and such I believe were put in to get you a level 50 really quickly, however, it's when you go back to level other things where you get the old school MMO feel.   I've had to explain this it seems a million times on just about every thread talking about quest hubs and such.  This isn't a quest hub leveling game after you're first (definitely after your second) 50.

 

I just find it funny when you look at all the threads about this game.  There's a million threads about how it's a "WoW clone" and all you do is quest after quest.  These people have obviously not started on another class.  Then you got threads with people complaining about not having quests after your first 50...it seems like if they came out with a game where they paid you $10,000 an hour to play it, people would complain about it lol.

 

Really I never put much faith in any review, if I haven't played it, however Rob has done a good job with this Review.  If I had to put a number on it, (after 2.1 comes out), then it'd be a perfect 10.  There hasn't been a game since FFXI and DAoC before that, which has captured my enthusiasm for MMOs.  I can literally sit down and play for 48 hours straight on a weekend, and never get bored with it :)

Also the story is very cheesy, someone mentioned crafting - I just got my ltw to 50 and weaver to 38 - its a grind, imo. What is so great aboit it?

It's very well done and can make you a huge amount of money at any level range. Money that actually matters in this game.

You seem to have grinded your way to 50 asap though, so I'm not all that surprised the point in crafting completely got over your head.

It's a sad sight to see, in all honesty. The game is brilliant but everyone plays it as if they were playing some WoW clone where NPC's supply you with everything and money is just another resource to grind on top of million other resources, not the driving force behind the game.

No, no. I hear they have an Epilogue planned to follow the Grand Final Review, which is slated to follow the Final Review which will be following the final Episodic Preview of the Review, which may or may not be what we just witnessed in this column.

No, no. This is an Episodic Preview of the Review, we just don't know if this is the last episode before the Final Review, or if they'll sideswipe us with yet another episode.

Isn't the antici.........pation exciting?!?

Careful what you wish for. We might go all Hollywood on you and reboot this review before we even get the final one out! (Think Spiderman).

I was one of the lucky ones that got to play it during the closed beta. I had a blast during phase 2 but when phase 3 hit I was disappointed. I didn't get to play during phase 4 (open beta) but I did get to play during the free trial and all I can say is as long as they don't change to much, but add a lot more I am game.  9/10

it definitely takes the "best available themepark" mantle away from Rift.  the fact that it does that while still remaining "obviously final fantasy"  means they are doing something right over at SqE (finally!!)

I felt the same way.  By the time I reached level 42 on my dragoon.  I couldn't bring myself to log in.  I doubt i'll ever log back in.  Decent game, but same old same old.

Funny thing is, a lot of people are looking for that first MMO exp IE in one sense the same old, same old. FF11 was my first mmo, and i have to say IMO, they captured the feel and essence of 11, and then brought it up to date and a fresh feel, with some similarity. been a long time I got "The Bug" . lol its been even longer where I caught my self up at 3am still playing going "oh shit think i need to gooo to bed now!" {grins}

but as always not every game is going to please or satisfy everyone.

Regardless.  

 

I can appreciate that these reviewettes (new word!) are taking into consideration the substantial re-launch pains FF has had..again.   Having finally been able to buy a copy in NA yesterday, I can personally see some of the issues that are being talked about.  In particular is a surge in lag from the tidal wave of people who are finally allowed into the game after sales were resumed.  SE, as with the other launch issues, seems to have been ill-prepared to deal with the new population spike.

 

For me, and apparently others, this lag issue fundamentally hinders regular gameplay.  If I am affected by simple movements and rudimentary actions, my grouping participation would be grossly affected as well.  They need to manage the surge of new players better.

 

My experience so far?  I'm going to wait and see, while going back to my old game.

I like the game a lot and I think I was longing for this kind of slow pace once again in a mmorpg. But I have just only one grip: the game's asthetic... I'm sure it must be something cultural, but I can't connect with the characters, with the world, the moogs seem silly to me...
