Countdown To Judgement: The Trial Of Final Fantasy XIV - The Final Verdict. Should You Subscribe?

Over the last 30 days, we chronicled our exploits in the land of Eorzea in explicit detail, regularly updating you of our progress and where we stood, before eventually delivering a verdict as to whether it's worth it to start paying for this game via a monthly subscription and continuing to play. Today, it's time to render that verdict! (Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, PS3, PS4)

YES !

Game is good , there are a lot of mecanics that work correctly and i don't feel that bored when i'm doing secondary stuff. Duty finder works quite well too.

And some of the locales are trully beautifull.

In short i'm having fun

Its best MMO out there, yet I dont have time on summer.

@Redempteur I agree 100%, been damn near impossible for me to go a whole day without thinking about that game. Unfortunately real life obligations prevents me from becoming a hermit and playing it all day! It is a great game though with plenty to do!

its a great game. nice to see that people are loving it and subscribing. I let my subscription run out when i bought my ps4, but will be rejoining after i get through a couple ps4 games and move my sub from ps3 to ps4.

I didn't play it on PS3, so I'll be curious to hear your impressions regarding the differences between the two versions.

PS3 was the bare minimum. Don't get me wrong, you can clear all the content on PS3 with any class.

However, you can't load a lot of people in on area, so big FATES seem empty when in reality there's a bunch of people there.

The graphics are really poor. Some places look nice (like the forests of Gridania) but overall it's a little touch on the eyes.

The worst was when I tried to do the Crystal Tower (24 man raid) and the PS3 blatantly could not handle it. I would be 3 abilities deep into my combo, and my character still hadn't done the animation for the first attack yet. Very frustrating. To combat this, I hard to turn off most of my HUD and floating text to get the game to run smooth enough.

Do you have to pay for online on PS4? I read about that somewhere but I can't remember if you do or not. I wanna get this game, but I don't know if I could handle the subscription on top of paying for online

What Final Fantasy nay sayers refuse to understand is that this game IS a Final Fantasy. I log in, I look around, I see big cities, Chocobos, Moogles, Black Mages with pointy hats, fight Ifrit, etc etc.

It's a Final Fantasy that got forced into an MMO, it's just a series getting more modernized.

And to subscription haters, please. You know how much garbage you probably spend 12 dollars on in a month? Seriously.

But but... I want to buy 40 mcnuggets with that $12!!

Joking aside, great game and I havent regretted my purchase at all.

Jabez I agree 100 percent. Having said that I bought the game on ps4.and wow what a different game. 1080p @60fps it looks and runs beautiful and imo the best mmo right now.
