FINAL FANTASY XIV Online: A Realm Reborn Review

Play NOW!

FINAL FANTASY XIV Online: A Realm Reborn is the make-over of the original and not very successful FINAL FANTASY XIV title featuring updated graphics, a gripping story of Good and Evil, an interesting class system and an amazing fantasy world to explore.

The game implements one of the most extensive and detailed character creation processes; there are literally hundreds of customization choices that will help you design a unique hero. There are five available classes but with an interesting twist; you can simultaneously train in different classes. The only thing you have to do is change the type of weapon equipped. What is more, once you reach level 30 in your primary one and level 15 in your secondary one, you can acquire a brand new specialization. The whole process allows for mixing skills and abilities resulting in a unique character that better suits your way of playing.

The intriguing quest-driven story will have you explore the fantasy world of Ezroa and visit a great variety of locations such as dense forests, vast deserts, snowy peaks and stormy coasts, all beautifully depicted with breathtaking 3D graphics and inspired artwork. Combat is what you would expect from a title of the genre, although you can use your chocobo (mount) to help you by acting as a tank, healer or damage dealer according to your needs.

End-game content consists of numerous raids that require absolute coordination from the participants since the various bosses not only hit hard but also have devastating abilities that will put everyone’s skills to the test. What is more, there are dynamic events called FATE that happen randomly in the world, have a level limitation and offer an alternative way to gaining experience. PVP enthusiasts can test their skills in two different modes; Wolve’s Den is an arena where two teams of four or eight fight to the end and Frontlines is a huge battleground where players from all servers try to kill each other and rip the rich rewards.

It is almost certain that FINAL FANTASY XIV Online: A Realm Reborn is a must-have for every fan of the Final Fantasy series. However, to attract new players Square Enix offers a 14-day free trial where newcomers can have a taste of the world of the game before they create the subscription plan needed to fully enjoy it. Ezroa awaits for new heroes, will you rise to the challenge?

It was back at 1996 when Theodoros bought his first Personal Computer and with it a copy of Shogun : Total War. That was the beginning of many sleepless nights of exploring the fantastic world of gaming. He calls himself an “expert” defender and that’s his favorite gameplay style but he will not hesitate to grab a shield and go forth to protect his team as a tank. So next time you adventure in Azeroth and see a shield bearing cow named Klaras, you have found our guy! He is also a great fan of Role Playing Games. From Icewind Dale to Neverwinter Nights and Skyrim, you name it, he has played it all! He is not your average casual gamer, he is a dedicated fan!
