I want an unbiased opinion on this game so I'm going to ask on the PC board.

I'm giving it a 5, mainly due to its insuntingly easy fetch quests and incredibly slow and boring battle system.
Everything else ranges from barely acceptable to good, but it's not enough to save this game in its current state.

My rating for it will depend entirely on how much jumping I can do when I finally become a dragoon.

stant447 - So suicide is illegal. But smoking is not? I'm allowed to passively kill myself, but not actively?
Transmutant - Just as long as you die I'm happy.

i gave it a 4. mostly due to the reasons tc said except i don't give it as much of a pass because it's been so many years that it's inexcusable to be this lazy and unoriginal.. especially after they already had a chance with ff 14 that failed miserably, and had all this time to improve. oh well i guess they at least improved.. but going from horrible to completely mediocre isn't something to be proud of.

Yeah you obviously haven't even played it. Good job.

9/10 for me

Yeah, his opinion is different so it's somehow wrong or he just didn't "play the way you did", hey?

The game is pretty boring, old style combat from a decade ago, graphics and motion sub par because of ps3 limitations, etc.

The only thing it has going for it is the story but I can't stand playing a pre 2004 format for the hundredth time.

7. Competent enough, but not enough to justify a sub in the post WoW era.

6/10

The way I see it is FFXIV doesn't really do anything wrong, but it doesn't really do anything that great either. It's the very definition of average. It's a decent enough MMO and if it was f2p or even b2p, I would consider playing it. At this moment though, there's nothing it does that justifies having a subscription cost.
