    Not only does Endwalker offer a satisfying conclusion to one chapter of Final Fantasy XIV, but it creates an amazing foundation for the MMO’s future. Endwalker will ensure that Final Fantasy XIV’s recent meteoric rise won’t come crashing back down to earth any time soon. Final Fantasy XIV’s prospects are over the moon.

    There's plenty of laughter and tears along the way, and Endwalker manages to send off the Zodiark and Hydaelyn saga on an incredibly high note. Final Fantasy XIV: Endwalker is a real crowdpleaser, and it should also leave everyone hopeful for what the future has in store for the MMORPG, even if this expansion is going to be incredibly difficult to top.

    In Endwalker, Final Fantasy XIV does the impossible: bringing a complex narrative arc, woven over the last decade, to a nigh-perfect conclusion. The latest expansion is a masterpiece that justifies the game’s current popularity and the best new story released in the franchise in recent memory, and it sets an excellent foundation for the MMORPG’s next years.

    With Endwalker, Final Fantasy XIV definitely proves that it deserves its place in the pantheon of the best episodes of the saga. It's simple, this new expansion brilliantly succeeds in concluding the narrative arc of Hydaelyn and Zordiarche thanks to strong moments sublimated by dungeons and epic challenges. Despite a rhythm that knows a few lengths, the adventure provides many satisfactory answers and benefits from visually successful environments as well as a high-end soundtrack that allow us to forget the dated technique inherent in this kind of game. extension which therefore does not include any major new features, but rather additions such as new jobs and many more than welcome adjustments. Now, we can't wait: to find out what Naoki Yoshida and his teams are preparing for the next patches and the future of Final Fantasy XIV.

    This is as satisfying a finale as any devoted FFXIV player could reasonably have hoped for. [Issue#368, p.106]

    The final fantasy to final all fantasies. This can be considered the ultimate Final Fantasy, all the staples are well represented there withThe final fantasy to final all fantasies. This can be considered the ultimate Final Fantasy, all the staples are well represented there with tasteful reference to many previous games and mythology. The characterization of the classes/jobs here is the definite version for most of it, each class/job manage to be so unique and still retain the flavor that made them known through the franchise. And the writing.... The latest expansion finishes a saga that started in 2010 and its a history that manages well to juxtapose realism with cosmic fantasy. When its telling more humane stories it succeeds in depicting politics, war, economy and revolution in a very complex, realistic and nuance manner. Nothing is black and white and the whole representation is very coherent. On the other hand, the fantastic aspects are as over the top as you would expect from a Final Fantasy full of non-sense jargon and crazy concepts while still being cohesive and compelling. Expand

    The feelings this story creates, the culmination of a gaming experience I started on the ps3 beta way back in 2013, it's indescribable. Truly.The feelings this story creates, the culmination of a gaming experience I started on the ps3 beta way back in 2013, it's indescribable. Truly. I was worried they wouldn't surpass Shadowbringers, but now I worry no mainline FF title will EVER be able to top this. XIV has officially stolen my top spot from IX, and typing that is such an odd feeling. I finished MSQ on day 3 or so of early access and I can't stop thinking about it still. All I can do is put the soundtrack on repeat and cry. Expand
