To be perfectly honest, I bought a new PC with the prospect of Final Fantasy XIV being on the horizon, the other PC games I've picked up until now have just been bonus. But to get to the main point, if I had known that Final Fantasy XIV was going to...

Games don't get to a fourteenth iteration in the series, with an additional bevy of side games, without shipping units. In Final Fantasy's case, the number of units shipped is massive - around 100 million at last count. In the 23 years since the first...

Launching an MMO against the might of WoW is a tough business. Follow the template wholesale and you run the risk of becoming just another copycat, introduce too many new and confusing features and you alienate a playerbase waiting to make the leap to...

By now you've likely read about Final Fantasy XIV's launch, which Square Enix, by extending the free trial period, has effectively admitted to be an unmitigated disaster. But there's a lot more to FFXIV than its botched start, both good and bad....

Given the serious lack of a proper tutorial, engine performance optimisation, class selection and quest density, I don't see how I could suggest anyone but the most die hard Final Fantasy fans pick up Final Fantasy XIV right now. Add to this mess the...

It's notoriously difficult to review an MMO at any stage in its lifespan. Two weeks after its release, you're opening yourself up to a tirade of complaints that you reviewed the game too early on to be accurate. Wait a few months and no one really...

Ongeacht vervelende serverproblemen is Final Fantasy XIV de fijnste online game waar we ooit doorheen zijn gelopen. De wind waait door de bomen, beekjes kabbelen en andere spelers rennen op grote gele vogels door velden heen - het voelt allemaal...

Die ersten beiden Betaphasen haben zwar noch viele Aspekte des finalen Spieles unbeleuchtet gelassen (zum Beispiel das angekündigte Arena-PvP oder die neuen Gebiete), doch können wir trotzdem schon einen positiven Ersteindruck abgeben. Entwicklerteam...

International Review By PlayMassive on 78

Wer ganz genau hinsieht, erkennt, dass die japanische Spieleindustrie nicht mehr ist, was sie mal war. Vor allem Square Enix, die ein Final Fantasy nach dem anderen ausspucken, scheinen den Fokus eher auf Umsatz, als auf die Bedürfnisse der Spieler zu...

International Review By Eurogamer on 30

Final Fantasy, den store serie af japanske rollespil, måske den største endda. Men hvis jeg skal være helt ærlig, så tror jeg også, at der stor gruppe ganske habile danske gamers, der aldrig har stiftet bekendtskab med Final Fantasy. Og jeg er selv én...
