INTJ, fun is fun except when it's not

Fair review on all points, about how I'd score it.  As a soloist I was mildly annoyed at being forced into dungeons as part of the story.  But really even that was enjoyable.


This is a very very good game overall, imo.  I see myself having fun for quite awhile.

I don't know what crappy internet you people have but i have zero skill lag and i play from Europe. Maybe want to check out your provider.



Which EU server are you on?

Rather disappointiing game. The story line is extremely shallow compared to any other ff game. If you were expecting charismatic characters or an immersive story line like the other finalfantasies look elsewhere in this game the storyline is just an excuse to have you do more of the repetitive stuff.  Just to be clear, gw2 had a way better storyline, justto give an. Idea ofhow distant this gameis in terms of story line compared to other final fantasies. Everything else seems to be rehash from other mmos. I had suchhigh hopes for this, alas it'sno goodof a game. Could have beenplayable on and off if it didnt have sub fee,expecting peopleto pay more than retail price for this game is a joke. Poorly played SE, we expected more from you

It is a good game but I had lag all the time and it was overpopulated so I didn't stay long enough. Only stayed to get paladin. But I tried something I don't usually do and played the tank which I don't like doing in dungeons due to requiring some kind of leadership role, studying fights before hand etc because I'm usualy the person who follows the group and dps the mobs. So, that was fun for a change. Had to already know what to do which first time doing it can be a bit fun with randoms. If the performance ever increased I'd probly go back and level up afew other classes as it shouldn't take 5 seconds to cast a 2.5 sec spell.

This isn't a signature, you just think it is.

GW2's story-telling is one of its weakest features. I liked the other parts of GW2 and I'm a fan of GW1, but the writing in the GW2 is closer to TERA's story. It's that atrocious. It cannot even be compared to GW1's and this one.

Nice review but I think your overall score downplays some of the major problems with this game mainly the server stability, dungeon congestion, AoE latency and position tracking, being hit by AoE's at end game is not fun and it seems SE are happy to ignore their playerbase about the issue.

[mod edit]What I was trying to say is that the story line is not comparable to any other FF game. Usually FF games get you very attached to the characters it's almost like reading a good book and when it's over you feel empty knowing you can't follow the adventures of these imaginary characters anymore.


FF14's story line is very distant from that. And yes imo Gw2 did a way better job with their story line, but that's an opinion, what's a fact though is that FF14 story line pales compared to any other final fantasy game.

That said, I am enjoying the lore behind FF14. I'm not sure why you are using GW2's personal as a benchmark since I found it lacking compared to its predecessor. The characters lacked personality and had a weak foundation compared to their art team which did a stellar job on creating atmosphere. GW2's visuals overwhelmed the writing. In comparison, FF14 got both the visual and writing direction right.

 

With regard to other FF titles, I would rank the writing above FF8 and FF13. The story is on par with FF10 and FF12. I find FF6 and FF9 to be better. Still, as an MMO, I care more about the world they created. And in that perspective, it is better than the FF titles.

Everyone has a right to express their opinion so I am challenging his. We are both comparing the game's story to GW2's story. What's wrong with that? If you feel like contributing to either one of us then go ahead. If not, then you're the one going off-topic and should be ignored.

You could have done that without calling him a troll and his post a garbage.  This agressiveness and rude behavior is un necessary and i hope a mod takes an action regarding such behavior. People get banned around here for lot less.

I apologized in a post directed to him. I assumed it was trolling due to the typos in his first post coupled with the join date.

I find this review to be far to generous in many respects, but that's my personal opinion I feel as if this post was damage control based off the original "My impressions of FFXIV ARR" post I made 12 hours or so before this one was posted.  Either way I wish all of you playing the best and I hope I am proved wrong when I say I feel this game will not make it in todays market in its current state and something tells me no amount of patching/hotfixes can repair bad game design.

Funny thing is that if a new account praises the game then you wouldn't say a word.

Funny thing is you wouldn't have said a word either if every thing was in reverse. I am not as black-and-white as you are and objective in what I see in the games I play so please do not categorize me under what you would do in that same circumstance.

I think the problem with the lag is due to population issues, the game has become too popular too fast. On Hyperion, we got a queue, again. SE is taking too conservative approach when it comes to adding servers, they aren't adding servers at the rate of new accounts being added.


It's effecting everything from the duty finder, to instances, to open world. In the quarrymill during peak hours there is usually more than 50 people zerging fates, the latency is over 4300 ping. I'll bet SE is wagering on dropped accounts after subs start being charged, but legacy players are already paying a sub, and the population hasn't changed.


Every person with an eye mount has paid for a three month sub.


There are things that are NYI, and these are things which potentially could impact the population, Wolf's den PvP and housing, albeit small impact, however Frontline, PS4 and directx11, if done right, could see another major flock to the game.

To be honest, I didn't find this game to be social.

8.4 is extremely generous, I'd give it a 6.5 at best, and a 10 for longevity?! It took me two weeks to get bored to tears of it. Well no shock here, as usual politics and money rules.

Have to remember, most of the convo's happen in linkshells, rather than 'general area chat' although im surprised you didnt get any help when asking a question as i've found that if someone has an answer then they usually send you a tell. But the game does really revolve around link shells and free companies for the social side of things. Its not something that your just given either, so far i havent had link shell req foisted on me randomly, you need to put yourself out there and be 'sociable' to get invited into them

I think the score is too high. 7.5 would be a more accurate assessment given the many shortcomings the game has. The invisible walls the zoning, ability lag, the global cooldown, gold spamming etc. Make this game frustrating at times.

I'm curious why you would give it such a high rating when the things you listed as negative are game breakers. The whole problem with this industry is that it's become all flash and bang with cool graphics with no substance and game breaking mechanics.
