I'm tired of theme parks. Am I wrong for not giving ARR a chance?

    You can die anytime, but you probably won't really start wiping until level 20. And that's with "new" teammates.

    I'm not gonna try to dazzle you because I'm not selling. But let's not slant the game here, it's a good product, it really is.

    Edit: I haven't ran one Leve, it's just one option amongst the oh so many other options for leveling, gearing, gilearning, w/e.

    I played 1.0 and did not hate it, but did not like it enough to keep playing.

     

    I honestly say if you have $39.99 to spend on a game, then go for it. It is a Final Fantasy title and they are trying to "redeem" themselves for the first botch up, it is Square Enix, if you are like me if anyone has earned a second chance its them for providing years and years of entertainment to be TV screen.

     

    Also, like a lot of people said if you are just this burned out of Theme-parks then don't try it, a "gem" is all opinion not fact for everyone.

    I'm only level 10 but I don't see the game changing to be anything like FFXI at later levels. I wish the servers were up now so I could play. Even though I hate the game. :( fml

    Is this...sarcasm? I can't really tell.

    If it's not, I'm confused. How can you foresee what the game has to offer at even level 20, much less 50, if you are currently level 10? That's like saying, "I watched the first five minutes of a horror movies, and it wasn't scary, so I can't see the rest of the movie being scary."


    I played alpha to max level. I also have pmed lots of high level characters in the beta and talked to them.

     

    I though the high level stuff wasnt available in either alpha or beta.

    That's correct.    Both Alpha and Beta had a level restriction. Beta only has content to level 35 and i belive Alpha had a lower level restriction.

    If that's the case, why tell us that you're level 10 and you don't "foresee" it being like FFXI? Adding in the last comment tell us that you have a lot more experience than just being level 10, but using the word "foresee" makes it sound like you don't. Again, confusing.

    If you get the chance to try it free why not?

    If you don't get this chance then wait for a free trial or weekend. after launch

    If neither of these happen skip it and move on.In the end it's only a game and your life won't be drastically changed in either way.

    If you're tired of themeparks, you'll likely get tired of this one in record time.

    It literally does nothing new.  It has the same dumbed down, simplistic gameplay that's been plaguing the genre for years.

    Playing it yourself is the only way to really tell if you'll like a game or not, but if you've played any themepark MMO in the last 10 years, then you've already played FFXIV.

    Hell hath no fury like an MMORPG player scorned.

    OP, if you are tired of themeparks, no themeparks will make you happy unless you take a break from them. Not FF14, not the rest of them. Play something else for a while and you might get to a point where you will miss themeparks and go back to them, or might not happen at all. Take a good break from themeparks and see if thats helps. It works for other games and genres so i dont see why not here.

    Just my opinion.

    image If the character customization is really good, I might be able to get my competitive jones off that way.

    its not the best, still feels very limited compared to other MMOs with this feature.!

    I'd say a handful of MMOs have more customization options than ARR. TERA, Aion and MMOs in that vein do. Compared to most others, though, ARR is pretty damn open now. They've increased the options substantially over 1.0.

    ARR leaves very little remove for distinction with only 4 face options, other than color of your skin. You pretty much look like everyone else.

    Am I wrong for just dismissing this mmorpg? Yes, I know I can try for myself, but I'm so burnt out on the traditional themepark style,  I don't even want to compromise my pc performance while downloading one in the background. 

     

    Yes, I know there will be a hand full of haters who respond. I've been around these boards long enough to spot one, don't worry about them. Can you tell me, "BC, you're missing a real gem"?

     

    Thank you for your time.

    I had the same problem when i tried Rift for free.  Im so done with themeparks and that whole questing system, i logged in tried the game and  just thought to myself " i have done this a million times " npc to npc getting lame quest of kill this kill that fetch this fetch that moving from area to area doing the same exact quest over and over and over. themepark is dead to me i wont ever spend money on another one, i will only try it if its free so i can remind myself why im done with them.

    If you like final fantasy series, then that alone would be a reason to try it, but if you are sick of MMORPGs, it is an mmorpg about FF.

     

    Either way, the people that re going to be playing it won't miss you if you don't play and don't care if you do, makes no difference to them. Its just you that has to decide for yourself what to play lol.

    GAME TIL YOU DIE!!!!

    They are going to have a vanity tab so you can look how you want. Chose any armor you like as a look and another as stats.

    Did you even play this last weekend?

     

    I know for a fact there is more then four options for a couple races... I don't know about all of them I have only played two

     

    Now while I agree there could be more options your being a little dramatic. ARR has pretty good customization compared to alot of the games out now....

     

    Could it use more, Sure what game cant?
