    This game is great in almost every aspect...only problem is that it needs more levels. I can't count the number of hours i've spent in valkrum dunes.

    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

    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.

  1. 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.

    FFXI may not technically be the future of MMORPGs, as there’s no ignoring its derivative nature. However, it has cleverly assimilated all the elements that make the genre so popular and married them with international brand popularity well beyond the reach of other, more ghettoised MMORPGs.

  3. This game is one HUGE, never-ending game of Final Fantasy with plenty of life in it. It left me continuously wanting to come back for more. [Review of FFXI & Chains/Zilart Expans.]
