I first played this game in 2003 on a PS2 at age 13. I am now 25 years old and still have so much fun playing this game that it can take up an entire weekend in the blink of an eye.

That being said, this game is not for casual gamers. Even in its current state with so many QoL improvements since its release, the game is still extremely grindy, challenging, and truly frustrating in certain aspects. It is very rewarding to those who are willing to invest the time into it, though.

I love every single thing about this game including all of the stress-inducing aspects of it and the clunky combat/macro system. But if you don't have the same feelings of nostalgia as I do, you might find yourself beyond frustrated with the game and quit within your first month.

If you have time to invest and love Final Fantasy (and don't have a significant other because this game may cause you to get a divorce) and you want to try one of the greatest MMORPGs of all time, this game is worth every penny.

Idk where to begin or how to end on this review. Ima just try to make it short (Maybe it will be long) and simple.

The Pros:
-The game does indeed have a good amount of players, if you know which server to join.
Asura is the one for non-japanese players and most populated.
So don't be discouraged to buy the game if you are concerned about the game being dead.

-Another note is how friendly the community is. I started in my first 2 and a half minutes and already approached by a veteran.
They will help you with anything you are confused about and will even go as far as to buy you some good starter gear.

-The game is dated but still looks pretty good by 2002 standards

-Nice outfits and weapons to use. Every outfit is a unique design. No stupid replicated, reused stock with different colors.

-The game can be challenging but really well balanced for a MMORPG.

-It's not P2W and no cash shop items as far as I'm concerned.

-There can be special events where you get cool exclusive gear

-Teamwork is where it counts for the most part and it can be VERY rewarding when you accomplish your goals in the game

Now, the Cons:

-The game can be REALLY confusing at first and a lot to take in for your first time. It's highly recommended to do a lot of research before buying the game.

-Since the game is pretty old, it does have a few bugs and issues. Like how it's capped at 30FPS, or how it only utilizes one core out of your CPU (More precisely one thread, but you get the idea).

-Learning terms and macro's can be a ♥♥♥♥♥ or typing in commands or trying to learn shortcuts for certain commands can be really confusing at first.

-Once you choose a server, you're stuck with it. You can change it but you would have to pay. You'd have to pay to make more characters as well. So if you ♥♥♥♥ up on your main and want to redo it or make another, then you better cough up some dough. It's not a lot but it can rack up if you have a ton of characters.

-It's a P2P game. Pay monthly to play. It's about $11 USD or something like that. Not bad imo. Considering it's a fantasic game.

-The controls can be very awkward to use. So it's highly recommended to use a controller. This game was designed to be used with a PS2 controller to begin with. KB&M just isn't as good imo.

The conclusion:
Overall, yes the game is challenging, in many different ways.
It has a very very steep learning curve but it pays off and it's very rewarding.
The soundtrack is good, the gameplay is addicting (once you get used to it) and the story..
I gotta say, when I play most MMO's, the story is usually boring and never pulls me in.
But this is probably the 2nd MMO to pull me in the story of the game.

Give it a try and with enough research, you should get the game up and running with no issue in a couple of hours. I just feel the game is like a huge adventure even with some issues I came across and learning through the game. It was all an experience and it's a fun adventure when it's with friends or random people you meet. Buy the game and hope you have fun as much as I did.

I played this game for many years when it first came out. I played all the way up to wings of the goddess. So when this came out, and it was on sale, I decided to give it a try again. To say things had changed was an understatement.

What was once a game you couldn't even TRY to solo before, and took hours and hours to get anything you wanted, within a week I was playing how I wanted. With the addition of Trust magic, an easily accessible magic that makes it so you can summon up to three NPCs, leveling has never been easier. Level caps on a lot of the content has been removed as well, so with any high level character you can do most of the previous content without the help of others (Not that you have to do it like that).

With the addition of the field support manuals (which help you level as well), A new sub menu to quests (That also help you level!) and the ability to teleport between home points for a small fee, the game is worth picking up again. Not a perfect MMO, but it's a classic as far as they go.

Final Fantasy XI is a very enjoyable and content-filled game, with a bit of a steep learning curve. Due to the game being out for such a long amount of time there is an insane amount of content to experience and to play through, and all of this can be exteremly overwhelming to a new player, especially if they don't know what they are getting into beforehand. Some of the more recent updates and patches make it easier for new players to advance and get caught up, but you will definitely need to put in a very large amount of hours to really even begin to scratch the surface of what this game has to offer. I'd reccomend reading guides as you play so that you are better able to understand what you are doing as you play, and what you should be working toward.

Gameplay wise I found the game to be extremely enjoyable, the battle system is a bit slow to start out but becomes more intricate and interesting as you advance with the introduction of skill chains and its very party-centric battle system. That is one of the main features of this game, the almost necesarry party interaction that is required to advance. This was particularly true early on in the game's life-cycle, but it has become considerably easier to solo with the introduction of some new jobs, the tuning of enemy strength, and especially the recent trust system that has come about. The trust system is basically the ability to build a party with three npc party members, making it much more accessible for new players to advance, and making it more possible for players to solo in general.

One of the interesting mechanics that I most enjoyed in this game is the job system that it has in place. Similar to Final Fantasy III or V, you are able to assign your character to a job/class and change that job as many times as you'd like. This allows a player to experience everything that the game has to offer on one character rather than having to make alternate character to play with.

Community wise the game may seem a little bit dead or slow if you're just starting out, as most players spend their time in the end game zones, so the starting cities and anywhere else may be a bit empty compared to other MMOs. In my experience it wasn't too noticeable however, there were still people running around Bastok (one of the starting cities) and plenty of people sitting outside of the auction house at any given time. I would reccomend looking into the more active servers before playing though, doing a google search for Final Fantasy XI server population would probably help you make a decision if you're looking for activity. However, I'd personally reccomend trying to find a linkshell or a group of people to play with before starting the game, and then joining a server where they are to get the most out of the game. This game, like many MMOs, is a lot more fun to play with other people, and it is a lot easier to make friends as a beginner outside of the game than it is in-game due to how far most older players have progressed.

Overall I'd recommend the game despiting it looking a bit dated, the gameplay is extrememly enjoyable and the community is pretty great and mature as well.
