On a positive note, if you enjoy a solid story, then i suggest you give it a try, since this thread is for people that are looking to try it.  The story is interwoven into the game through both quests, 4 man instances, and 8 man instances.  The culmination of your entire adventure actually feels like an adventure when it is over.  So many great themes and shouts to former FF games along with some great storytelling.  That alone is worth the price of the box.  

There are some negatives.  Fate grinding for the rush crowd has tainted some people's view of the game and that is legitimate.  40-50 slows down pretty hard and can be quite a chore.  There are other shortcomings that others can probably point out, but in my opinion the positives far outweigh the negatives.  

I really hope you are right. I am looking forward to play dungeons soon and that's one thing that keeps me going. Hopefully I can respect more of this game after I experience dungeons, and maybe change overall opinion about this game. 

About the stories, good stories are always welcome. It is not about  the story itself, it is about how it is spoken. I seriously think SWTOR type of story telling (Maybe people will argue it is also from FF, I don't know about that.) isn't really universally enjoyable system for most of MMO population. It is exclusively certain RPG fans' taste, not even whole RPG fans'. Stories must be told more naturally, one good example will be Skyrim's way of story telling (not saying it is perfect, it has it's own defect too.) Or, the amount of story telling contents must be reduced and only very important events must be done as story telling, or it will just bore people off like SWTOR did. But it is bearable for me so far.(it is strictly my opinion but I know I represent A LOT of people in this matter.)  Story telling system isn't really the big matter here anyway.

As far as story is concerned, i have good news: it is nothing like SWTOR.  There are no choices in dialogue, it simply tells the story.  And it is masterfully told.  You may not like other things about the game, and that is fair, but stick it out and give it a legit shot.  I think you'll be pleased.  The dungeons after 30 can be quite difficult, especially the last two primal encounters.  Garuda still makes me freak out.

Who invented what first is not my interest at all. My point is that there is nothing new or interesting, or market-competitive in that system. So, FF invented it? I can't give less damn.

Why would you post a review about ANYTHING with only 2 hours of experience? Makes no sense..

The dungeons are not mindless, the crafting isn't mindless and at the least the story mode chain in their majority are very nice if you enjoy any form of plot in your games.

The loading is an honest gripe, however I don't think its terrible.

I think the graphics are beautifully done. Now you might not like them but I would have to say that is a preference issue and not a game issue.

You sound like you're just tired of theme park centric MMO's.

 

 

 

If  your MMORPG fails to make people want to play past 10 mins let alone 2 hours, you failed in your mission.

 

A lot of people are saying the same song and dance with this one.  It pretty much is what it is, I give it 6 months before we can officially put a lid on it.

The OP's 5th word is "impression" He not once mentions the word review. He gives a first impression of a game to inform others who haven't seen it yet. The hate towards him that follows in this thread is quite bizarre.

Frankly; two hours of playing a game or reading 10 pages of a book are perfectly fine to get a good impression of what is to come. You can see if you like the style and get a taste of the overall quality of things to come. If a restaurant serves a lousy starter i'm not going to hang around waiting for the main course. Every writing course will tell you that if you screw up the introduction? don't bother with the rest because there's no one left to read it. Or as Robert McKee put it: "Within the first pages of a screenplay a reader can judge the relative skill of the writer"

The op did exactly that, if you had a different first impression then write your own thread about it so people can get a different outlook.

To make a list of the kind of players that may like this game:

*People who like dungeons.

*People who like multiclassing.

*People who like elaborate crafting.

*People who like to play the market.

*People who like raiding.

*People who like decent stories in their mmorpgs.

*People who like beautiful world and good music in their  mmorpgs.

*People who dislike to action-based combat and prefer a slower pace, more like in the middle between real-time and turn-based.

*People who hate item malls.

 

Edit:

Also of course:

* People who like Final Fantasy.

Now now, FFXIV only has boring quests, mediocre graphics and a neverending loadstory.

You must be playing something else.

Please give an example of a good quest, and an mmo with better graphics.

Your opinion is your own but I don't see eye to eye with you.

1. Quest system isn't new but no game has made a better quest system, any mmo out there is like this.

2. Story is great for an mmo even though reading can be a pain its interesting.

3. Graphics are breathtaking in some areas and great everywhere else, better than guild wars 2 by a long shot

Story telling : identical to SWTOR, plus excessive loading is annoying.

Class system : similar to games like Eden Eternal. Nothing new.

Graphic : is ok, not great.

 

Why this game is so popular now?

I have no idea. But my guess is that,

1. it is attractive to Final Fantasy fans. I haven't played any of FF series (I tried, but it wasn't really my thing.), so I guess I can be objective or even critical to FF environment.

2. end game contents 'may' be cool. But it is a long way for a gamer who's worn down by similar games.

 

So, conclusion is this.

Do not expect anything new. There is no new contents for new players. If you are looking for something new, you will be disappointed.

But if you are just looking for something to spend your  time mindlessly, 29$ isn't really a loss for this content imo.

If you like Japanese style fantasy world, you may even love this game. (I don't like them.)

Personally, I am not sure if I can keep leveling my char to max level. I was already bored after 2 hours.

 

 

You seem to have no concept of learning curve, come back when you reach 50 and give it a proper review.....

If you don't like Asian style fantasy world, why did you even bother buying a FF game??

Next time you want to post your conclusions and give people advice in forums about a game and specially a MMORPG, try to invest more than 2 hours and some people might take you seriously.

Well I won't be Mr popular with my comments but,.... i agree with the OP on some things. This game will die quickly.

 

The graphics and sounds are wonderful,... good. 

That being said,.... the community is terrible. 90 percent of the 1000s of people running around dont say a word. They are quest zombies running around, grabbing the ! and kill x of y, etc. 

There is no point in ever making another character,..... you better name yourself well, better spend an hour or so on making the character, because there will never be a reason to reroll, you can do everything on one toon.

You leave town and you see level 1 turtle, level 2 rabbit, level 3 f rog,... really,..... REALLY? terrible. just terrible. Seeing the levels in the header and how every 50 feet there is another mob one level higher seems so cheap.

The crafting is fun,... but will die soon. No one needs the items, the quests give people so much, and dungeon items are better. People can farm mats faster than are used by the crafting. People use the items crafted much less than can be crafted. Everything will be 1 gil soon. The players that still will have level 50 everything and not need anyone. 

It is far too easy to level even for casual players. Leveling gives minimal sense of accomplishment because of this. 

Overall the good graphics and exploding population make the game seem fun, but the community is very hollow. The graphics will not make up for the lack of sense of progression. Nothing you attain feels as if it was an accomplishment.

Your admitted bias renders your OP useless and besides...everything you said is just wrong.

Could tell by the first four words of your "quest system" remark how this post was gonna go lol. I would counter to anyone reading this post to try the game yourself and form an opinion. And please..... Give it more then 2 hours.
