Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn Collector's Edition
Just a reskin of a better game...
Nothing special in this game. They basically take ideas from other games and put them in half hearted. And if you're a quester you'll be sad to know the quests aren't really repeatable so 3-4 classes/jobs in you'll have to find another way. Almost all the skins I saw are just redone FFXI skins.
The cut scenes are great tho.....so if you play a mmo to watch cs it's great for you..
What is this?
What is this garbage labeled as a MMO? Would actually be nice to be able to play the wretched game. At least with The War Z I was able to play the game. Here Im just sitting around hoping and praying for an opening and its going on 8 hours so far! Don't waste your time with this garbage. This garbage launched with so many ridiculous bugs, lack of space for mass population in each servers and really apparently not enough servers to put up with demand. For crying out loud I can't even play on a freaking NA/EU server!! Final Fantasy: A Real Ponzi Scheme should be the title and is much more fitting.
What can I say
This game made it right this time around , looks great compared to 1.0 and the atmosphere is alive. A must play for Final Fantasy fans or any MMO players out there.
Let me say first off I have been gaming and playing MMOs for about 14 years total. I have played every Final Fantasy game on the market from start to finish including the off genre ones game cube, Gameboy, etc. I always enjoyed FF games growing up as my favorite series it was the series that I think of when the word video game is mentioned. I have played many MMOs WoW for 8 years as a PvE healer, GW1 and 2, Aion, Rift, Age of Conan, Tera, SWOTR, and more almost always a PvE healer class.
This is where FF: Realm Reborn comes, it blows me off my feet keeping the whole FF series that I have known for 14 years and gives me an amazing MMO I can enjoy. I have all the amazing aspects of a solo player RPG I enjoyed into a world wide MMO with great PvE content. I play a white mage and plan to do PvE healing content at a high hardcore level of raiding just as I did in WoW. This game is going to have great challenging content to come and I truly cannot wait for this.
New or Experienced with MMOS GET IT!!
I have to say that this is one of the best games that I have played in a long time. If we would start with the company Square Enix. Any company that would recognize that they made a mistake then go back and fix it, that is unheard of in this day and age. If you told that to let's say Bioware they would be like "Be happy with what you got, even tho it wasn't what we promised." They went in and did something about it. Now they have Yoshida (Producer) Who actually gets on Live chats and tells what he is going to do then does it! What better way to have a game? Now as for the GAME PLAY itself they have great tutorials on how to play the game as you play which is a great thing. It plays so smooth the character models looks great (With more to come) The battle system gives you a chance to move out of the way of attacks if you need to as well as interrupt them. When you do dungeons unlike another MMO you have to think a little when you fight in even small battles you can;t just grab everything and got at it or your going to get yourself killed. So as for the gameplay I give it a 10. MUSIC: As for the music it is wonderful it gives you sense that you are in the area and how the people feel that live there. When you engage in battle the fight music also adapts to that area and it will continue to the next fight so you hear the whole track and not have to start over every time. CONTROLLER ON PS3 wow I have never seen or used such smooth controls. It is one of the best layouts and control mapping I have ever seen. If you do get it for PS3 you will not be disappointed. As for my overall review this is a must have if you want somthing new and that the game designers actually care about what you think. So please give a try and remember to rate my review. Thank you and enjoy the game and spread the word.
you've played this already
CONS: When I say "you've played this already" I am not reffering to version 1.0. If you are a veteran of MMO's you will understand what i'm getting at. This is yet another heavily instanced, quest hub grinder with global chat. You start in an area, grab all the menial tasks, run out and complete them so you can move slightly further from where you started, rinse and repeat. The combat is border line abyismal with a 2.5 second global cooldown. The game is solo friendly and offers group content as well. The map directs you like a child everywhere you need to go. You start off fighting bees at level 3 and then you will fight tougher bees that look like the level 3 bees a little further down the line. There is little to zero inovation in this game. Most things good and bad you've already done in another MMO you will find in this game with a FF skin. PROS The sound and graphic quality are what you expect from a Final Fantasy title i.e. awesome . Cutscenes are beautiful and offer some humor. character creation options are better than many AAA MMO's.
This is the best game I've seen come out in recent memory!! I've played all through the beta and the first version, and it's just FUN, nothing about it is painful or annoying, you plug in and go, and start your adventure, lots of help along the way for those that need. HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT
As great of a game as FF11 is, after playing FF14 in Beta I now have a reason to play this full time. Perfect evolution for the future of the FF series. Finally, a MMORPG done right.
Almost everything you could want in a fantasy MMO!
I played the original Final Fantasy 14 on and off since it launched; wasn't too impressed like everyone else, but it wasn't the worst ever. I was then included in the beta test of a Realm Reborn from day 1 and I must say that it's been mind-boggling how much they've listened to us testers and how much they've improved even upon their already-improved original beta version. I've played a handful of other MMOs and participated in betas for a dozen or so. This game has everything I look for in an MMO, allowing me to play casually or hardcore. It has a lot of features common to MMOs like WoW or SWtoR, but there are some significant differences, too...quests have instanced and bound mobs and items to all but prevent griefing, the FATEs are freaking awesome, I've probably spent at least 2 hours staring at the scenery - the graphics are better and run smoother than any MMO I've seen (even ESO which isn't even close to release), incredible story immersion, the interface is really easy to customize, the class and job system is deeper than other games, crafting and gathering is actually almost fun, and it just feels really polished all-around moreso than any other. I guess it might be easier to say that the only real complaint I have is that skill/spell responsiveness doesn't feel quite as solid as Tera's, though it's better than WoW or SWtoR certainly, maybe on par with GW2, however it hasn't hindered my gameplay or screwed me up at all and the combat still feels really good - if you push a button, it happens (more than I can say for WoW or SWtoR...lol). I have not been able to participate in PvP just yet, though I know they have both open world and pvp matches...no idea how well that will turn out, yet. Did I mention the music and sound? Yeah. Amazing. Perhaps one of my favorite parts is that they actually somewhat disguise the hand-holding aspect of this game and give you story-driven reasons to do most of what you do and tell you what they tell you...and cutscenes rock. I could go on forever...just go try the open beta, should start in a week or two :)
Might be the best game of Final Fantasy.
In the ages of the FINAL FANTASY that I have played have been a 9 rated score for the graphics that is but this a knew spin.The monster on there is kinda tough if u don't us the right tools.It gets harder and harder from the start to finish.I never played this one before but this one might be a great sell since all games we make go to Asia like, Naruto and many more so I am hoping that this might be the game changer of FINAL FANTASY.
