  1. Whether you're a seasoned veteran or wet-behind-the-ears newbie, Chains of Promathia adds even more to see and do in the already robust world of Vana'diel.

    From the moment I got in game and started doing the new quests and missions, I knew that I would see some great things. However some of the content in the Empty areas seemed to be more difficult than needed.
  3. The expansion is only $29.99, and well worth it for the hardcore FFXI player.
  4. 80
    Bigger is exactly what Final Fantasy XI: Chains of Promathia truly is, as it adds a considerable amount real estate compared to most enhancement bundles out there -- with storyline superfluities that are rarely seen in appendices of this type.
  5. 80
    Those that have yet to exceed level 40 and undertake some of the main game’s tougher challenges are probably unprepared for the trials this expansion pack has to offer and will likely find them frustrating and unrewarding. For those prepared to throw down the gauntlet, though, there’s a lot of fun content and gorgeous new areas to be discovered.
  6. The enemies were incredibly intelligent. Antlions would not only attack you in a mad rush straight on but they would also construct sand traps and wait for you to walk over them whereupon they would attack you from below.
  7. 60
    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.

    Simply one of the most amazing stories in a Final Fantasy to date, sure you had to go through hell in order to complete the main quest lineSimply one of the most amazing stories in a Final Fantasy to date, sure you had to go through hell in order to complete the main quest line but it was well worth it. Reaching "Sea" and exploring it for the first time was such a memorable moment and then a few months later being able to finally conclude the story was truly amazing. Expand
