    Final Fantasy XIV Online Review
    Square Enix's laborious online role-playing game is a step backward for the genre.

    The Good
    Impressive visual engine Flexible class system lets you be what you want, when you want.
    The Bad
    Absolutely miserable interface Does a poor job of communicating important information Limited questing means you're always looking for something fun to do Everything about the economy stinks Every aspect of the game is filled with dumb obstacles.

    inb4 fanboys defending the game.

    Too bad, it seemed rather interesting. I might still give it a try someday, though... If I ever get a computer that can run it smoothly.

    They also gave Halo Reach 9.5, what's your point?

    But, to be honest, the game deserved this score.

    I'm having fun with it, sure, but, it's not a good game, and to release it as it is currently was a massive mistake on SE's part.

    I just hope they fix their shit and develop the game more.
    On nights like tonight when no one's around, I turn off the lights, and I float off the ground.

    And I smile like I used to when you were around.

    I played the beta too, and despite the fact it was a beta, there were so many flaws and utter crap that I played for about 1 hour straight and it felt like a chore.

    I hated how figureing out simple things lik repairing weapons (which you need to do frequently) is so hard to figure out, and you need to go to outside sources like forums etc to figure out basic things in the game.

    There is no ****ing auction house. What they have are ''retainers'' which are npcs that sell your stuff. Your retainer is telaported to an instanced area where in there are 200+ retainers there. You can't lable your retainers with titles like "SELLING IRON IGNOTS'' or, "SELLING SWORDS''... that makes it so you have to literally click on ALL of the retainers to find what you are looking for. Thats IF someone just happens to be selling what you're looking for.

    Making a simple lvl 6 bronze war axe OVERLY complicated. You need a total of 6 diffrent items to craft the damn thing. Since there is no auction house, you need to search for literally hours to find what you want. Or you can go afk in bazaar mode for an hour in hopes of someone selling your item.

    Ive been playing the game for a few days and I have yet to be able to craft my lvl 6 axe. It may be because I don't have a link shell to give me 90% of my stuff like most players do.
    Relax and enjoy life

    Current state of the game is a 4/10 well deserved.
    So much stuff that needs fixing/adjusting, everything you do takes too long.
    The game isn't fun at all, everything you do is a chore, not fun at all.
    If you run out of anima you end up running eerywhere too, uurghhh thinking about it makes me mad, lol.
    Well the majority of the game, atleast for me, really pissed me off plenty of times.
    As far as i can see, that 4.0 is a pretty accurate score.
    I am a SE fanboy, so coming from me, i guess that means something.
