"Graphics are the best of any MMO or any other game"5.0 starson by Arco2010
Pros: Graphics are incredible and music is outstanding. Has a good starting story line. The basic foundation for a great MMO is all there. Crafting system is really addictive. Good tools for socializing and making new friends. Can play solo if you choose.
Cons: UI interface to many menus to go threw to do what should be simple tasks. Still some minor bugs. Delays between action and excution still just a little long if .35secs is long for you. Need a really good PC to run smoothly
Summary: This is Final Fantasy if you don't like to figure stuff out on your own or want game to guide you along then this is not game for you. Most of the complaints on other forums and reviews either have been fixed or in process of being fixed. No there is no AH thank god don't need another economy ruined by groups of people called RMT controlling pricing just so they can profit offline in real money. This game is taken a lot of slack in recent weeks from either players or reviews that either don't know MMORPG or Final Fantasy. To review a game as complex as this you need more then just few hour at PC running around for proper review need to immerse yourself in it for couple weeks at minimum if not a couple months. Sure game came out and had some bug issues but none of which cannot be ironed out in the next few updates. Its too bad there are so many people out there that don't understand the nature of MMO's and what has to go into them to keep everything running smoothly. I have yet to see a single MMO past or present come out at launch that didn't have problem to fixed in months and years to come. FFXIV is no different. FFXIV is a great game and will only get better as it matures with more and more content to be added. Final thoughts yes FFXIV is a grind to level but that is what Final Fantasy is from the very first single player Final Fantasy 1 to now with Final Fantasy 14, so if you expected that to change your looking at the wrong game. Give the game time as the economy grows and takes a life of it own. Be friendly to others and you will make friends and social networks in no time. Most important have fun explore try out new things and ideas never know what adventure is just around the coner.
