PCGamer: Final Fantasy XIV review

PCGamer: "The kindest thing that can be said about the Final Fantasy MMO is that it has a good intro movie. That movie doesn’t take ten minutes to load, it maintains a constant framerate and you don’t have to traverse a labyrinth of menu screens to play it. In short, it’s everything the game isn’t."

I fully agree. I effing hate this game. Not only is it the biggest disappointment of the entire generation, it's one of the most infuriating and worthless games I have ever attempted to play.

Leonesaurus4733d ago

Overreact much? You hate the game because you have absolutely no clue what you're doing and you fail at the game? hmm... Seems like everyone's issue when it comes to judging the game.

So running around for hours with repeating terrain and boring missions is callahan's fault?

How about it's not the fact that it's people don't know what they are doing, but instead how FFXIV itself doesn't even know what it's doing.

Haha good thing I didn't try the beta or bought the game, my bandwidth deserves attention for better games.

Also, only 3 classes = fail. Especially for a MMORPG. I'd like a little variety in my RPG thanks.. 3 classes is not enough. Not to mention 2 of the 3 are the most boring and generic classes in the history of RPG..

I wouldn't even ask for an FF7 remake anymore. They'd just find a way to f*ck it up.

Man this must be really bad if PC Gamer hates it, they are highly credible.

And the hammering continues. Oh Square Enix, how do you manage to fuck up two numerical entries of Final Fantasy in a row. (Piss off before you mention FFXII because it was a brilliant game. Better than FFXIII).

LiViNgLeGaCY4732d ago

Fully agree with you about XII. I thought that game was a masterpiece.

Cloudberry4732d ago (Edited 4732d ago )

Final Fantasy XII was one of the least main titles I like.

However, after all this waiting & finally played Final Fantasy XIII...

I couldn't believe that I feel XII was better than XIII. : /

XII was almost as good as VIII and much better than X in my opinion.

Panthers4732d ago

I liked XII but not more than X. X just seemed nearly perfect to me. It was better that VIII though.

Cloudberry4732d ago

Nor I played Final Fantasy XI for that matter.

I had no interest about Final Fantasy XIV at all but...

Except for the review scores it received lately. : /
