Great eye-candy with tedious grindlavigator | Jan. 9, 2014 | Review of FINAL FANTASY XIV: A Realm Reborn (NA)
The game looks amazing, but what set me off was the leveling. You finish quests, but then you will still be below the recommended level for the next zone. Not too many abilities (maybe this is a good thing,) but it didn't help that I was using the same 3-4 abilities while trying to level for hours. The player base is pretty friendly, rarely any trollish types, and people are always looking to party. Admittedly, I haven't really leveled too far - about level 20 - but I couldn't find myself to play much further; it's only my preference, but maybe you will get a better experience.
This doesn't affect this rating, but expect Square Enix's support to be exceedingly horrible. A good amount of my friends have had the worst possible support I've ever seen - had a friend that waited over 2 months to get a reply for a hacked account and another 4 to get it all sorted out.
If you enjoy that moment where you stop everything and just enjoy the scenery or like to play with an MMO that encourages you to play in a party, then check it out.
