    Despite the lack of new jobs in the expansion, and the difficulty of the Promyvion zones, there is plenty of new content to warrant a pickup for any but the newest players. [Jan 2005, p.76]
  2. It does have charming graphics and sound, but the maddening grind really drives down the fun factor.
  3. It's designed exclusively for Final Fantasy XI's most dedicated players, and probably should have been a downloadable update for those players.

    Though it's a fairly robust expansion, most of its content isn't immediately accessible, nor is it even readily apparent, especially for beginning players.

    Promathia should offer worthier excursions than this. [Jan 2005, p.108]
  6. In all fairness it’s a title that is probably geared towards the more experienced MMORPG gamer who should get a lot of enjoyment from the title, while more casual gamers or those new to the genre may find the experience a little daunting.

    Chains of promathia is simply amazing.
    it offered super challenging but very fun and rewarding group content, beautiful new areas that were unlike anything else in the game. awesome memorable NPC heroes in the storyline. very long very in-depth story that finishes the main story arc started in the first 6 nation missions and rise of the zilart expansion with tons of epic cut-scenes and dialogue.

    now it is easy to solo on a max level character and recommended just to see/relive the story. totally worth the long hours it takes to finish.
