CVG: "Good grief, Final Fantasy XIV was dreadful. Released back in 2010 on the PC only, it was an embarrassment, not only to the MMO genre, but to video games in general. Featuring terrible lag, unnecessarily complicated menus, and bland, empty landscapes, it was fundamentally broken. Three years, millions of dollars and a rehauled dev team later, and it's a completely different story. In fact, the current version of FFXIV is so different, Square Enix has aptly renamed it 'A Realm Reborn', and, having had hands-on at a recent event, we can confirm that this really is the case."
