Kind of silly to post a 27min "first impressions" clip when everyone knows that it already takes about 20min before you are through the cutscenes. And then the game further on introduces you to camera-movement and A,S,W,D...

So...?

But hey, severs seem too be overcrowded, anyway ;) Thu Aug 29 2013 2:26PM Report

This game only got traction as SE had the business sense to release it during a very dry patch in terms of MMO releases.

@ shantideva Definitely not a generic Asian MMO. Definitely needs to be played before judgements are made.

@tommygunzII They've gone and left the 1.0 review and review score there. MMORPG.com really needs to be fair to the new game and remove that review and not post a score until they've been able to review ARR...

Okay for first impressions I didn't quite get your, uh.....first impressions. More of a first look into the game but not your impressions of that.

I played the first FF11 online final Fantasy and it did A LOT of things right.

  • skill chaining in combat was the BEST! No game has done it as well since. And....um....WHY NOT?!
  • every feature had a purpose, crystals, player housing, items in their housing, imho nothing felt wasted.
  • sub jobs sub jobs sub jobs! What a great solution to class change while keeping it a single character. Fix the need for another toon for storage space and you dont' need another character to create :D
  • Boss fights were both difficult and more importantly EPIC FEELING. Not just the fight but the music, the production value etc. Hey how come games don't place more importance on music in boss fights these days? Play that shit up fellas!
Okay so when I read up all the articles and features and disappointments on the next FF online I asked myself....why did they get rid of so many of the best elements of FF11 online?! If it worked well in the first and so many people liked it why are you DITCHING IT?!
 
Alright gripes aside from it's launch my issue with what i'm seeing on FF ArR is that I don't quite see where the game is going presently. That is to say I'm not hearing about what people should be looking forward to in this game. What is going to draw people in here? Gotta have some sort of a hook to suck players in. So what is that hook?!
The game looks wonderful as a final fantasy game should look but Nothing is super standing out. and that really needs to happen.
The music sounds awesome and well its FF its gotta have that. ESPECIALLY their theme song. #STAPLE
From what I saw of their combat it seemed rather generic. Stand there, hit your attack keys, maybe a special spell or two but that has been done. Combat is growing more and more dynamic these days especially when you figure other games have characters jumping around and attacking from all angles rather than standing in place and front facing for every attack.
Unless this eventually breaks the mold they need to address it in some way to make combat way more fun.
So these are my first impressions from the video, take them for what you will.

+1, loved that part with the misplaced cancer jokes and stuff...

though it's maybe a tiny bit related, malboros are in FF for a while now, and they _do_ have Bad breath :)

Lavec writes: Err this is an old first impression so not sure what is going on here. That said I got bored of it in beta in 2 or 3 days but it is polished and I rate it a 6.5. It could get better but I couldn't get there with enough excitement. Oh and I'm a FF XIII/XIII-2 fan - haven't played earlier games. Fri Aug 30 2013 8:12AM Report

Eir_S writes: I'm always amused by Ripper X's videos, he's goofy.  As for the game, eh... I was thinking of buying it because I need a second MMO, but this game does not look fun.  The GCD looks pretty long, you can't move and cast, and I don't know, it just looks like Aion.  Why does everything look like Aion to me?

zzx81 writes: RipperX is always acting like a 5 year old kid talking about his favourite toy or sweet. I seriously have no idea if that is how he behaves in real or all just for entertainment purpose by making a fool of himself. Most of his mmo intro videos covers only the skin layer of the game and alot of his comments are either not true or goes to show how clueless he is on that game. But effortwise, give u an A for that.

@zzx81 Well you make a few good points, first off I am actually 5 years old, so maybe that's why I'm goofy! But in terms of my videos only covering the skin of games, well that's what a First Impressions is, I go into a game for the first time, freak out if it's good and try to show the players the basics of the game not the details.  First Impressions are meant to show the skin and now the bones! 

A+ back to you!
