Final Fantasy is one of the best online games out right now, everything from the graphics to the story is top notch and Stormblood is no different. It is a great expansion offering some nice additions to the game. It would actually deserve 5 star, though I was sorely tempted to give 3 stars, if it wasn't for the fact that to me this game is getting a little too greedy. You have to buy Final Fantasy A Realm Reborn, then Heavensward and now Stormblood. While that isn't much of a problem in itself, you have to pay a premium to even be able to play the game every month with a subscription. And on top of having to pay a premium, you have the cash shop that may not have a lot of pay to win options, but when you are paying premiums for the game and sub that is just pushing it. If the game wasn't so darn good it would have been rated lower by me for this, but it is a really well done game.
I started playing the game since the open beta and at that time I was playing another MMO, but FFXIV was simply beautiful, with great graphics, awesome gameplay and an enjoyable story that I just had to quit that old fashion MMO. Simply it just made me feel in love with it. I often get invitations from my friends to play other MMOs that aren't P2P, I play it like 5 hours and I have to come back to Final fantasy, now I can't find joy in other MMO rather than this one. The balance in this game is one of the best things I've ever seen, you actually play to be better than most of the players and not like others where the guy with most cash is the best in the game. I could make a big list of items that this game has to offer but it would be too long, just play it, you won't regret your choice!
Despite the early access issue, i can say: nice story well designed maps and content! great dungeons well combat designs .. The new classes are super fun to play and The battle system changed! soundtrack sounds amazing like always! while Heavensward has the superiority of setting and setup, Stormblood has unforgettable moments and various! I'm so excited to see how the patches comes out! combat changes are the strength of the game! and welcome upgrades just make it more interesting and fun to play!
This expansion is a mixed bag but as a former White Mage, I logged in after a 3 hour queue to find they'd made my class completely worthless. The initial launch was even more of a shambles than usual, and considering Square-Enix have a history of shambolic launches they really should be stepping up to the plate for their paying customers by now. A 3 hour queue to log in, broken main story quests, and constant disconnections because Square-Enix refuse to reinforce their server infrastructure during major releases, are all unacceptable considering we pay to play this game. The content in the expansion is great the new area's, classes, quests, story and music are fantastic. If you played a White Mage or Dark Knight sorry, they've trashed your class, but other than that, the game is great and well worth jumping back in to once they get their act together and sort their servers out. As of right now I'm giving this 3 out of 5 stars because the issues are so bad. Consider this a 4 out of 5 once the issues are corrected.
Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood in another DLC for Square MMO series. It introduces many important new features. The largest of these are new locations. This time we fight with the resistance to free the province from the hands of the Empire. We also visit the Far East of Othard, a land which architecture and culture are inspired by Japan. In other words, the area is huge and there are a lot of things to do so if you liked base game try this one out.
