Review @ - Final Fantasy XI -

FFXI OGaming has a first impressions review out of FFXI.  Here is a preview of it:
FFXI is a MMORPG, or Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game, and therefore isnâ??t like any other RPG. For those of you who are not familiar with MMORPGs, instead of controlling a party of characters, you control a single character in a huge multiplayer world in which you go into battle, gain experience, buy/trade/sell items, and engage upon various optional quests and missions. Because of this, the gameplay in FFXI is very open and nonlinear, whereas the gameplay in other RPGs were constrained to a more linear fashion that had you do one thing after another or go from one place to another in order for the storyline to move along. While you may think that previous RPGs were still quite open and nonlinear in that you didnâ??t have to immediately do what was next, FFXI completely eradicates that whole idea by allowing you to do whatever you wish in the game. Pretty cool, huh? And thatâ??s not even the best part of FFXI. Speaking as a non-RPG player, the fact that FFXI was going to be a MMORPG alone caught my attention and sparked a casual interest. Sure, I have heard of other MMORPGs before, but a Final Fantasy game as one? You canâ??t be serious.
