Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn 60-Day Subscription
A Realm Reborn
[Please note that this review is for the PC version of Final Fantasy XIV A Realm Reborn. I do not have either of the PS3 or PS4 versions.]
While Final Fantasy XIV 1.0 had its difficulties from launch, Final Fantasy XIV A Realm Reborn has risen above the problems of its first iteration. The graphics requirements are a bit more forgivable for some of the older machine, owners of higher end PCs can crank the settings for gorgeous visuals.
Players familiar with WoW or SWTOR should feel at home with the game mechanics and UI.
It's fast, easy and surprising high quality. It's a thick card for being a time card and it comes in a "dvd" box. It's kinda cool but odd. I didn't except it to be what it was. I thought it was a game when it came in the mail.
This game is amazing if you..
like a challenge, a good community, and good gameplay. I've played GW, WoW, CoH, Rift, GW2, DCUO, The Secret World, Wakfu, and League of Legends and this is, by far, one of the best games I have ever played. If you're expecting a WoW clone, don't bother; FFXIV requires patience and persistence as well as a good attitude. This game, in my opinion, is superior to most MMO's in every way possible. Instead of grinding 10 characters as one horribly engineered "class/profession" each, you can level all classes and all professions on ONE character. You don't seem to ever run out of things to do, either. The community is very helpful and usually cheerful and fun as far as I've seen. My questions weren't answered with trolling and shrieks of try-hards, but rather several polite answers and even an invite to a very helpful and kind guild (haven't seen that since CoH). I've been waiting for a game like this ever since Blizzard destroyed WoW and let it become overrun by angry 12 year olds who hate having to think critically and love making everyone around them miserable for the sake of entertainment. The graphics are beautiful and it stays true to the spirit of the Final Fantasy games. The NPCs are interesting and have made me laugh several times. Give this a try! If you're an old school MMORPG player, I think you'll enjoy it. :)
Don't waste your time.
got this game when it came out. expecting something at least half way decent. this game is trash, dont waste your time and money. go play wow or gw2.
