FINAL FANTASY XIV

Story
The guardian gods and goddesses known as the Twelve watch over the city-states of Eorzea. These tiny nations carved out a history of blood and betrayal, forging and breaking alliances as each warred over territory and sought to impose uncompromising interpretations of their patron deities' will.

The fate of the land would, however, soon change. Not fifteen years past, a new threat appeared from the north and east-the mighty Garlean Empire. With its fleets of behemoth airships and warriors brandishing weapons that spewed streams of fire, it crushed Ala Mhigo, the most powerful of the six Eorzean city-states. Galvanized by fear of a common foe, the remaining nations joined in a clandestine alliance. Fortunately, the dreaded invasion never came and an uneasy peace prevailed. Thus it was that Eorzea slipped into the Age of Calm.

As the city-states continued to develop regular standing armies, a growing number of mercenaries and hedge knights found themselves without employment. Concerned at the rise in number of armed men and women resorting to acts of villainy to survive, several respected leaders gathered together to form a network of guilds. The guilds provided these lost souls with the chance to utilize their talents for the benefit of themselves and others.

Through the foresight and resolve of these leaders a new industry had emerged-and the Age of Adventure had begun.

I purchased this game recently with a generally open mind. I enjoy some online games and dislike others and have both liked and disliked final fantasy games. Initially I found this game broken but decided to play for several hours (now at 15 total) to see if it improves. Rather than improving, it gets worse. The game is essentially frustrating and quite boring. The game will also be released in March on the Playstation 3, and it seems as though this PC version is almost a testing ground for the game. I am sure that the game itself will improve greatly with patches and such and will likely be a great game at that point.

In short do not buy this game YET. It requires a monthly payment, and as such you will likely play it little in its initial stages as bugs and things are fixed. Simply why pay for something that is broken. Hold off for a month or so if you want to try it and then check back. It has great potential in the future, but is not ready for the markets yet.

First, for those missing the goggles, you can contact SE live chat support to solve your problem, that's how I got my goggles. They will ask you for some information, then proceed to verification, and you'll eventually get your item code by email.

Second, for those having difficult time with the game, I can only say that this game is not meant new gamers; it is really built for experienced people from FFXI, and it's still in its beta state... Yes, you're still playing a game that requires a lot of fixes and major updates.

However, you can start getting used to the "unfriendly" game interface or wait 6 months for SE to make it more "complete".
I totally wasn't surprised by how it is atm, it was expected, maybe not for newbies to the game.

After spending time in the Ul'Dah and Limsa Lominsa starting areas I have found nothing but 2 areas that, once you remove the colour palates are for all intents and purposes the same zones. This is my main criticism of the game right now - there is nothing to see that is remotely interesting outside of the main cities that i have found thus far. They send you on uninspired quests to clear farms from rat infestations but there are no farms - just 2 rats sitting near a bush. Once you complete 8 of these boring 36hourly quests there is nothing to do but grind on marmots and rats (or in the case of crafting, repeatedly click 14+ times to make 1 item). While the graphics engine is nice, the world design does not show off the engine and comes across as flat and stale. Couple this with numerous UI issues and bugs I can't recommend this game to anyone in its current state.

I, also, did not recieve the pre-order bonus as promised and neither did my friend who also ordered through Amazon. I contacted amazon customer support and was told to "please check again", and after e-mailing them again they basically brushed me off and told me to contact Square Enix. There was obviously some sort of mix up on SE's end, and Amazon is refusing any responsibility in ensureing the product we ordered matches the product that was shipped to us. Currently I am dissatisfied with Amazon, but will reserve further judgement until I've finished my back and forth with customer service. I did however recieve the 30 days free, though I can see how you could over-look or miss that portion, but that is Square-Enix's fault, not amazon; and I must admit the shipping was quite fast.
