Guide to Final Fantasy 11 on the PlayStation 2

Final Fantasy XI on PS2 has been a long time coming, having being first announced in January 2000. It's an ambitious project, for sure, taking the long-loved and successful Final Fantasy Role-Playing Game (RPG) series and porting it into a massive multi-player on-line role playing game (MMORPG.) The game is also supplied to only work on the new PS2 portable Hard-Drive accessory, and once installed the game works strictly off the hard drive and on-line.

The world of Vana'diel, where Final Fantasy 11 is set, is massive and impressive. Vana'diel consists of three rival kingdoms, who together defeated the evil Shadow Lord 20 years prior to the game. The Shadow Lord is rising again, the beastmen seem to be up to something, and heroes are called for once again. Hence, you heed the call, and enter the game by choosing your side from the six races available.

You also have a choice of six jobs (or trades) to assign to your character. However, the game is very progressive, which means that as you advance in the game your job and trade choices increase to 15. There are also sub-jobs options available, and you can progress to more important positions as you advance in the game and get more points.

Final Fantasy 11 is also consistently upgrading, which means that the developers are constantly providing tweaks and changes to some of the jobs and options, creating a new experience almost daily.

Final Fantasy XI on PS2 is very flexible there are a lot of quests, sub-quests, or just general things to do. If you so wish, you could spend your time just fishing, crafting items or just exploring. The world is vast, and choice of character trade and skills are also vast. There is always plenty to do, and plenty to explore. The only draw-back is the actual 'look' of the characters are very limited, which means that you are bound to find a few of your 'twins' within the world as you play.

Also, most PS2 gamers are not used to MMORPGs, and it is a good idea at looking to invest in some MMORPG speciality controllers (such as Nyko's iType2 controller, or Logitech's NetPlay.) If neither of these are in your price bracket, you may consider just getting a USB keyboard or Mouse. The use of the normal PS2 controls, while not bad, do take some getting used to for this kind of game.

Final Fantasy 11's graphics are above average on the Sony PS2 Console (admittedly, though, the PC version is able to deliver a better graphical experience) and the music is pretty average. However, the sound effects are brilliant, and add a unique surrealism to the game, where every slash and crunching footstep is played in full 5.1 surround sound. This gives the game an incredible atmosphere, making you feel that you truly have entered another world.

Another point about Final Fantasy XI, being an RPG game (an adventure/task game mixed with combat) is that the combat system can be somewhat dissappointing. It is more automatic than manual, but many RPG players prefer exploration over combat.

Admittedly, a MMORPG for the Sony Playstation 2 console is a very ambitious and significant project, and the boys and girls at Square-Enix have done a fantastic job with the latest in the Final Fantasy series. MMORPGs are certainly not for everyone, and can be expensive (a monthly fee, over and above the original package price) but can be a highly enjoyable experience that can result in not just months of playing, but years.
