    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 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.

    Surely overshadowed and not memorable enough but the game is fun and there is a lot to it with the gameplay and the replay value cause the series always succeeds at replay value.

  1. It's designed exclusively for Final Fantasy XI's most dedicated players, and probably should have been a downloadable update for those players.

    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.

    While the geographical and story elements Chains introduces are top-notch, it is regrettably light in other areas. [Holiday 2004, p.88]
