Since Square Enix is letting anyone play Final Fantasy 14 for free I decided to give it a shot.
The Final Fantasy MMO’s has always been a little more fun to play than the actual Final Fantasy games because I have more control over my character.
This MMO is pretty generic. I’ve been playing for about two hours and I’ve only done fetch and kill quest to this point. There is no dialogue worth noting because I’ve literally skipped 90% of it.
There is no voice acting in this game. It actually reminds me of Tera it’s just not as awesome. I don’t want to read a wall of text in MMO’s anymore. That day and age is gone. Guild Wars 2 proved that an MMO can have pretty good voice acting and I know Square Enix has the cash to do it. They’re just too lazy and it shows here in Final Fantasy 14.
The gameplay bored me at first. Once I got a few skills under my belt it became a little more interesting, but I don’t know if I like it or hate it yet. I need more gameplay time in before I can make up my mind on it. I don’t have a problem with MMO’s having slow gameplay, but if there’s nothing interesting going on in the world itself is where the problems start happening.
Right now every quest that I’ve done is really boring. It has that generic feel to it and that’s not something I want in any game that I play.
Graphically, this game is alright. It’s not the best looking MMO on the market, but it gets the job done. I hate how it showed us this beautiful cutscene when the game itself doesn’t look half as good. Square Enix is known for doing this in every single one of their games.
Final Fantasy 14 A Realm Reborn is okay so far, but if the game doesn’t get any better as I progress I doubt I’ll ever consider playing this again. Right now it is not worth $15 a month or the asking price of $25. If this wasn’t free at the moment I doubt I would be spending any amount of time in this game.
