The game features a host of improvements over its predecessor, including a new engine, improved server structures, enhanced gameplay and an all-new story.

Summary

There are so many addictive and enjoyable gameplay elements in Final Fantasy XIV that WoW-schooled veterans and MMO rookies alike will love. It's been a long time coming, but A Realm Reborn is finally here, and Square Enix makes the most compelling case for subscription-based gaming in almost a decade.

We like

  • Vivacious, unparalleled soundtrack
  • PC-grade, WoW-competitive MMO on a console
  • Jobs, Materia, narrative, gameplay... Incredible

We dislike

  • Visual and technical compromises
  • Bland voice acting taints otherwise-stellar audio
