Final Fantasy XIV a Bust

The word is out about Squaresoft’s equal to the hit MMORPG Final Fantasy XI. And the word is…………..
That it is awful!
I am really disappointed to hear that, as I am an avid Final Fantasy fan. Customers and review companies such as GameSpot are complaining that the controls are not fluid, even with the special Final Fantasy XIV controller (which needs to be completely set up after installing.) There is also complaints for the lack of an auction system, as well as a very unfriendly interface. To give you an idea of just how unfriendly it is… it takes several clicks to bring up the inventory system, and they do not have hot keys in the game.
Other complaints include the fact that a huge portion of the Final Fantasy XIV world is just the same stuff copied and pasted over again. Furthermore there are level five monsters and extremely high level monsters right next to each other. Quests can be finished in no time and there is a quest per day limit. This leaves users without much to do since there is not much to explore. There are several other issues that customers have been complaining about, but you can read those reviews for yourself. Since I haven’t played the game I cannot give my opinion.
On a positive note however, Squaresoft lives up to its name and displays beautiful real-time graphics and cut scenes. I also am completely confident in Squaresoft’s ability to fix many of these downfalls. Final Fantasy Online (FFXI) was bad at first but evolved as well after all.
