I have decided to try out Final Fantasy XIV – A Realm Reborn – and so far, I have good and bad things to say.
Currently on the message boards everyone is crying because of server issues, which I guess is a big deal, but the factor they aren’t considering, is at the time of posting this, the game is still in early access and they are readjusting and adding more servers. I expect this anytime a new game comes out. To make up on their end for the downtime for early access players, they extended the date until the 29th, so you get two extra days of early access before your free 30 days start ticking. This has been the only bad thing, the server and login issues, but those aren’t the game, so this is all I will mention about that.
Now for the actual GAME!
I’ve only played for 3 days so far, but I enjoy the game a lot. The controls are great, much like WoW, which I believe has the best controls.
Graphics are beautiful
So far I have not seen or heard of any major bugs
Questing is fun and leveling isn’t so bad, I would say it is kind of fast.
If you ever played Final Fantasy 11 you know that leveling solo was almost impossible at higher levels. This does not seem to be the case here.
The Classes/Jobs are a great aspect to Final Fantasy. Very customizable and a reason to keep leveling multiple characters.
That is it for now, but if you are looking for a new good MMO to play, I do feel like this one has what is needed and will last a very long time.
