Final Fantasy XIV

Overview

Fourteenth edition of the Final Fantasy series has been introduced with the Final Fantasy XIV. It can be played with multiple players through online role playing. Square Enix is known to be the publisher of this incredible and exciting game. Four languages have been incorporated in this game for the benefit of the gaming enthusiasts. It is available in languages like French, Japanese, English and German.
After having an online run from 30th September, 2010 to 11th November, 2012, the creator has decided to launch the game completely on 27th August, 2013. It has been a successful re-launch on the PlayStation and Windows. Various changes have been done on the Final Fantasy XIV since the first launch. It has been made available to the public after testing of the four cycles. Final Fantasy XIV will surely capture the imagination of the gaming enthusiast all over the world.

Game Description

Explore the adventure of running through a magical land with Final fantasy XIV. It can be played on the personal computer and the PS3. The game of Final Fantasy has been set in the dream land of Eorzea. In the history of the game, the time has been described as well. An event of the apocalypse has been brought forward by the descent of the lesser moon just before the time of seventh Umbral.
Eorzea is a land filled with treasure. It is known for its treasure and tyrant ruler. Gamers will be surprised here with every twist and turn. An out of the world is created in the fantasy land of Eorzea where Garlean wants to invade the country of Eorzea from the northern side of the state. The country is trying to protect itself by summoning the descendent of moon Dalamud who can wash out every stress of life outside Eorzea. Dalamund has escaped after thousands years of imprisonment and Dalamund has come to fight in the battle between Garlean Empire and descendant of moon. A thrill has been infused in the gaming enthusiasts with the narrative of the game.
It takes 15 to 20 minutes in order to choose the races and classes of the game as the interface is very intimidating. It is possible to take avatars in this game of Final Fantasy XIV.  Gamers can customize an avatar for themselves or load existing character data. In this game the players participate in the events leading to the battle between the Garlean Empire and Dalamund’s Descents. Various nations of the fantasy land of Eorzea have taken part in the coming war. They have been preparing themselves for the impending war between both forces and alliances are forged according to their needs.
Character creation is an important aspect of the game. It is possible to import character in the game and retain an inventory of weapons and skills. It enables you to change the name, race and appearance of the characters. You can choose from Hyur, lalafell, Rogadyne and Miqo’te. Hyur has been introduced in the Final Fantasy XI as well. However the other races such as Miqo’te have a close resemblance with mithra and Roegadyn is an orcish race. According to the class of the game, you may choose the weapons of your choice.

Pros

Immerse in to the game of Final Fantasy XIV with dungeon and questing. It is a quest to achieve something at the end of the game. This quality of game has increased its popularity among the gaming enthusiasts and fans. Once again the guild level system has been incorporated in the game for the benefit of the player. However, such feature has lost its popularity. A new feature of FATEs or Full Active Time Events have been included as well. It has captured the imagination of the player with large scale quest. It will be possible to include a lot of characters. Intricacies of the game have made it more interesting. It is generally used to reach to a same level with the other character, and it can be termed as a little impersonal method of leveling with the characters. Witty dialogues of the characters have enhanced the charm of the game further.
Different classes can be learned in a single game of Final Fantasy XIV through gathering, capturing and crafting. An effective tool of swapping can be used as well to learn a class within a single game. The results of the game can be changed with the help of these tools. The player can come across a champion after using these tools of the game.  With myriads of option, the players are baffled to choose an appropriate class for themselves. There are about 8 crafting class, 9 advanced jobs and 3 gathering classes.  With a simple move, the player can lead to a destructive spell. Clarity of the graphic has turned boring and simple task in to a sensation.

Cons

The advantage of having a great story has submerged due to use of MMO structure. It can be identified as one of the downfall of Final Fantasy XIV and therefore, should not be introduced in the MMO system. It has all the qualities of an exciting game in its own way and players can feel a sense of nostalgia while playing this game. The beauty of the characters and classes cannot be utilized completely with the MMO structure. The players have been restricted in many levels due to the use of this structure.

With incredible atmosphere and characters, the beauty of the game has improved dramatically. However, the inclusion of several bands has ruined the game. Force dungeon compels the player to team up with other players from different servers and not all players are interested to join random strangers for dungeon runs. It is a MMO structured game with hardly any interaction between the multi players and often, you’ll end up running on solo most of the time.

Verdict

Interest of the gaming enthusiast has been retained in the game with the introduction of amazing narrative and beautiful fantasy world. With the addition of MMO structure to the game, the gameplay suffers as a result. Overall it can be said that Final Fantasy XIV is a great experience to have and still worth playing if you’re a true fan to the Final Fantasy series.
