"Final Fantasy XI Online Review"
Final Fantasy XI is a worldwide MMORPG meant for the more advanced and adventurous gamer. The massive and beautifully detailed world of Vana'Diel is filled with countless friends to find and party with, limitless enemies to battle, vast worlds to travel, and hundreds of activities to complete throughout your journey. The graphics in FFXI are amazingly graphic and immensely detailed, immersing the player into the attractive world of Vana'Diel. Each object, character, quest, and mission in the game is well thought out and everything seems to tie in well together although there is no main plot. You will come across millions of players in FFXI and will always be busy, due to the fact that everyone who plays the game is different and the game is constantly changing. FFXI has got to be one of the greatest and most-played MMORPG's in the world, and one of biggest time consuming games on the market.
Interaction between players is a major part of Final Fantasy XI. Due to the fact that there are over a million players of FFXI, each with their own specific way of playing the game, there will always be someone to party with you who can help you out in any way. Partying allows players to team up with one another to complete missions and quests, and take on the mightiest of enemies with friends and other gamers you may come across. Since Vana'Diel is such an immense world, you can party with friends and other players and travel to the deep denizens of the world, as you find the rarest of items and face the greatest of enemies. The more creatures you face and the more places you explore, the more experience you will gain and the better items you will be able to wield.
Crafting is another activity used in the leveling up of a character, and plays a major role as you progress in the game. You will be able to craft just about any and every thing you can think of in FFXI, this includes weapons, accessories, armor, food, and even furniture. Each item you craft will allow you to gain crafting experience so you can create that all powerful item that you've been wishing for but don't have enough money to buy, and will allow you to sell each of those items to players and make a decent amount of gold. You may even find that one player in Vana'Diel that has the item that you've been longing for, and may have it at a much cheaper price. Some items you craft will even allow you to acquire certain quests or special abilities to advance your character in their training.
Arguably, FFXI has got to be one of the best, highly recognized and highly sought-after MMORPG's in gaming history. Each event you accomplish, each creature you vanquish, every player you come across, and all the environments you will explore will make your character more advanced with each passing day. Strive to become the greatest player and in doing so you will become so.. .in the challenging world of FFXI.
