I was actually acting kind of gitterish ,as if i couldn't wait to get in and play,i was looking forward to this game.
As soon as i entered the game,my head dropped,i gave out a gasp of dissapointment.The game instantly reminded me of any of the latest 3 FF console games.
I would say it is a good thing to spend time and money on cutscenes,but i actually want to play the game and feel part of the world.Instead of feeling part of the world ,i felt like i was drawn into a linear console game that is telling me what and where to go and i have no choice in the matter.Some doors don't move,game won't let me enter certain areas,i was thinking that there is no way the same people that made FFXI are involved in this debacle.
You click an NPC and only a few have voice overs and you cannot just walk away from a conversation,you have to actually exit from the menu at least in most cases.
You start off with the well known Gobbue,of course the graphics ar nice,the sound effects are cool,but it is a linear cutscene,i have no realistic bearing on the opening scene what so ever.This so called ferocious beast literally walks right through me [another pet peeve] like i wasn't even there,yet we are to beleive he is some threatening beast to the villagers.
I have not felt this same urge to leave/exit from a game so early on in quite some time,i was just badly dissappointed.I only played about an hour,and i already lost interest,it will be VERY hard for me to go back in and try more of the game,but i can already see it has that exact same linear/console/single player game feeling that turned me off in FFXIII.This game is all about better graphics and cinematics,but it totally misses the design of a realistic MMORPG world,it all feels generic.
Sad day for me,now i guess i will have to wait for some other title to catch my interest.The worst part is that i had some convictions about this game but had hoped to be surprised,however once i entered it was like far worse than i had imagined.
