    A Realm Reborn is one of the biggest reversals in fortune we've seen for a game in many, many years. A must for MMO and Final Fantasy fans alike.

    PS4 power and updates have made a great game, even better.

    By adhering to the cookie-cutter conformity of MMO tropes, A Realm Reborn doesn’t attempt anything wholly new but shines in its familiarity.

    A Realm Reborn is a well crafted theme park with a healthy variety of activities for the players, but those who strive to participate in the End Game shall see a lot of grinding ahead of their path.

    Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, PS4 version, has got a higher gear, takes advantage of the hardware in an intelligent way, it marks a milestone in the MMO genre and in the history of Square Enix. This is the best MMO available on a console.

    Even on PS4 A Realm Reborn is a great game, with the upgrade to Full HD which is especially useful for a better HUD management. The DualShock 4 is comfy enough, and the touchpad helps to navigate better the interface. The game's major issue remains the excessive lag (but it's still better than on PS3).

    As it stands now, A Realm Reborn vastly improves on its predecessor and delivers a wonderful fantasy world to spend countless hours in. It has its fair share of flaws, especially in regard to the quest structure, but I imagine fans of the genre will enjoy their time with the game regardless.

The game comes out with new content every few months or so that adds to the games story, therefore adding new quest, dungeons, and features that will keep you wondering what's next and will make you stay until you see. All of this is why I've put more hours into this game than any other ps4 game, and highly recommend this game to anyone seeking out a great gaming experience. Expand

    First of the PS4 controller works great with this game you can tell the dev team devoted alot of time getting the controls right, next finalFirst of the PS4 controller works great with this game you can tell the dev team devoted alot of time getting the controls right, next final fantasy 11 is one of my favourite mmo's of all time, FFXIV has topped it by a great margin, Eorzea is a magnificent immersive world with wonderful music that captures the final fantasy trademark, I spent endless hours in the beta and am glad to say I will be spending many many more in the full game, one fault I wish they would of considered though they could have had more npc's with voice acting.

Great for anyone looking to explore a new world, or perhaps indulge in a combat system that differs from most other MMO's on the market today. The main story quest's has it's ups and downs. I felt as if certain phases of the story were dragged on too long. Worth a try. Expand

    Too much Fedex between the good parts.
    I stopped caring about the story pretty quickly and of the three months I've got to play, I did 120 hours which were mostly a chore with a few nice dungeons in between.
    Every time I think I'll play a bit with friends, I find something else to do : washing the dishes, taking a nap, playing a game that is challenging interesting and fun, ...
    I've been told it will be better once I'm level 70 ... but i doubt it's worth the pain going there.
