While I’m sure most Final Fantasy fans have already read the majority of mixed for reviews for Final Fantasy XIV on the PC, we couldn’t help but take notice of IGN’s poor verdict, only scoring the game a 5.5/10.
According to their review, Final Fantasy XIV isn’t a game worth getting, highlighting key issues regarding the ‘terrible interface’ ‘slow menu response times’ and the the lack of user-friendly features which makes the game very confusing for new players.
However, they do reserve special praise for the game’s visuals, while they also say the story mode is pretty interesting. After reading their review though, the criticisms definitely outweigh the positives unfortunately.
With a lasting appeal score of just 5.0 from IGN, this is almost unheard of for a Square-Enix title, especially a Fantasy Fantasy MMO. To say the game ‘isn’t worth playing’ is a pretty bold statement, so we’d love to hear your side of the story.
Firstly, those of you who already have the game, is the criticism justified or not? For those who are yet to buy it, has the 5.5/10 score completely put you off?
