Final Fantasy XI review

  • Gigantic world to explore
  • Playing with other people
  • That rewarding feeling when leveling up
  • Three-hour space-hogging installation
  • $50 up front + $13 per month
  • Losing levels after losing fights

Despite its flaws and frustrations, FFXI's age gives it one thing that no other 360 game can match: massive amounts of content. You could easily lose 200 hours of your life (not to mention your spouse) during the first month of exploration. All those uncharted realms could make Final Fantasy XI worth its $12.95 monthly subscription fee (and yes, that's in addition to the $50 price of the game itself) as long as the repetitive gameplay doesn't chase you away before you see most of it.
