while i was checking up on game.co.uk's coming soon section i found that Final Fantasy 11 was being released again on 360 with all expansions for Â£25. Quite naturally i was turned on as it gives me an excuse to renew my XBL account and its final fantasy with loads of other killing plus with no uni expenses til october i can afford to pay the fees plus its a mumorperger and for me thats all new and exciting because with my parents needing the PC i couldn't play WoW....plus it was as entertaining as getting an arrow through your neck with a recent bank statement attached.
anyway before i plan my fake death so i can lock myself away and play this has anyone else had a go on it? i want to know if its worth it otherwise ill get Haze instead...
no vid reviews, just written. like all mmorpgs its a love/hate affair. apparently it also takes 4 hours to install plus registration but thats expected really (WoW was similar). with 30 days free i feel like its worth a go...need a new 360 title before Fable and Gears of War 2 anyway.
I own a copy of Final Fantasy XI for the 360, actually. Since I bought it (for some unknown reason) at the time that the 360 version came out, I don't have any of the latest expansions.
Based on my experience, it was pretty fun to play. I played the PC version (like an addict) for a few months so I was accustomed to the controls and basics of the game already. Transitioning to the 360 version wasn't too hard, though I do recommend getting a USB wireless keyboard so you can chat with other players and use macros/commands.
I don't know much about the latest expansions but I don't foresee myself going back to play the game anytime soon. I didn't have the time required to play a MMORPG and the money was also fairly expensive for my budget.
Oh and another thing: Since I had to buy this game to play it, (you cannot rent this game) I found out that I could not trade in the game for store credit at GameStop (a US-based retailer) due to a console and software lock. So if you find out that you don't like this game, you're stuck with it.
ill get the messenger kit for 360 that comes with a keypad that fits into the controller

all i need is something like that really, if it lets me talk to people in the game i'll take it. I know i can get other keyboards for much cheaper but its just a space issue, i have enough stuff lying around so i don't want to add a large keyboard to it.
plus it also seems that i'll have to get the messenger kit, i asked in my game store and he said usb keyboards were hit and miss. i did find a nice one for Â£10 (came with ps2 adapters) but with the added delivery charge to get it quick i dunno if its worth the risk...even though this one could be used on last gen.
Well after doing some researchy-search i found that any usb keyboard will work. i need it to type rather than play which is why the guy at the shop probably misunderstood.
