Square Enix has pulled off the seemingly impossible: rescuing a disastrous flop of an online game without going free-to-play, and creating an incredibly addictive, satisfying experience for both MMO and Final Fantasy veterans in the process.

Lejos de rendirse (cualquier otra compañía hubiera cerrado los servidores sin contemplaciones y se hubiera puesto a trabajar en otro proyecto) la compañía de Wada ha desarrollado un MMORPG a la altura de los mejores en apenas 2 años, y eso hay que tenerlo en cuenta.

But it's beyond clear that Final Fantasy XIV has, in fact, been reborn. This is everything players wanted the original game to be--it might avoid pushing the boundaries, but it provides hours upon hours of well-designed quest sequences, breathtaking graphics, and a gripping plot.

Ultimately, I've enjoyed my time with Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, though I can't deny its derivative quality.

Construido sobre la base del fallido Final Fantasy XIV, A Realm Reborn supone todo un logro a la perseverancia; a la pasión y dedicación de un grupo de desarrolladores japoneses por esta obra, a la que nunca han dado por perdida. Y gracias a ello, casi tres años después del lanzamiento del original, hoy nos encontramos ante este magnífico MMO que hace honor a sus raíces.90
