Final Fantasy XIV: Rebirth of the realm is a gorgeous convenient and flexible MMO

I told myself, I’ve had enough of massively multiplayer online role-playing game. No, because I have some kind of addiction, but that’s all, I’m just tired, shortcut bar filled with magic and attack missions, constantly nagging villagers, and woodland creatures mass murder. The world of things, such as World of Warcraft, Guild Wars 2 Lord of the Rings Online, play more after a few years, I think I had my fill.

But, you know what I did not play online games? 2010 Final Fantasy XIV. Like I love the Final Fantasy series (I hit every major number, single project), I’ve heard about FFXIV nothing but terrible things. Critics called it a boring, confusing mess.

Ah, someone in the company must agree to publisher Square Enix. Mistakes in trying to fix it, there are a few patches, but went ahead Square and restart the whole thing. The result is a Final Fantasy XIV: reborn, and now the PC and PlayStation 3 realm.

Despite my MMO fatigue, but I’m very curious to see what that looks like this scale restart. Shockingly, I found my new favorite in the genre.

Gorgeous World
Rebirth of the realm Eorzea, a beautiful continent, which is home to many races, like the tall wizard Elezen or tiny, cute Lalafell (like my character in a fantasy world, there were a lot of people, you will see in the this review screenshot). While most online games go exaggerated, cartoon style (such as the World of Warcraft, and even “Star Wars: The Old Republic), a realm of rebirth sticks Final Fantasy veterans, especially those who play Final Fantasy XII familiar with the artistic style of its results there is no experience of a handsome, cheap MMO feel.

The common task, usually involves killing monsters and collect items simple tasks, such as they are often surrounded by an interesting narrative framework. In addition to the main storyline, each class has its own task chain, providing a complete story
