Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn Review: Life After Death | Polygon

Polygon: "I was cautiously optimistic that Square could turn around its failure with Final Fantasy 14: A Realm Reborn, but even with my fondness for the series, I never could have guessed it would put out something so successful. For MMO fans, this will put your best-honed skills to the test while telling a strong story in a well-realized world. For Final Fantasy fans, it will grant visions of the past without completely losing itself to fan service. Final Fantasy 14 is a great MMO; perhaps more meaningfully, it's the first Final Fantasy game in years to capture the energy and joy that made me fall in love with the series." (Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, PC, PS3) 9/10

DONT BELIEVE THE HYPE! FF14arr doesnt do anything innovative or amazing for the mmo genre. If youve already played any mmo before, youve played ff14arr. The game is solid, doing everything decently, but also comes along with its annoyances.

For example, from lv1 1-50 you will find yourself grinding repetitive/boring "fetch me" quests or "go and kill this for me" type quests.

Mounts are extremely slow, honestly about the speed of a players sprint just infinite. This is a major annoyance because more than half your time spent online, you will find yourself either running or riding a mount to get to a destination, still square decided to make mounts just slightly faster than people sprinting without mounts, making objectives consume more time than they actually should. However, there are teleport stations but using these stations penalize you with fees for using them.

Right now there is no pvp, so when youre online all youre basically doing is leveling your character or jobs, or(if you happen to get bored)running instances.

The game can be fun, but just because a game is fun doesn't mean its great. FF14arr is like Jeremy Lin, fun(to watch), but only a mediocre player hyped up by the media!

Honest score is:

7/10, 7.5/10 ATMOST!
