Julian Cannon back for a new post and it is straight from this year’s New York Comic Con. Final Fantasy 14 : A Realm Reborn was shown today and I have tried it for the first time today.
The first thing I have noticed was that the interface and the movement speed is much faster than Final Fantasy 11. Everything just flows in motion as there is no moments of a slowdown. When I landed a few attacks on a few enemies, the game never transitioned to normal free roam to battle mode. It was similar to Final Fantasy 12’s battle system where you can attack and cast spells and use items all at once without having to take away the battle screen. This was something that Final Fantasy 11 did not have.
Another great thing about the game is that, unlike in Final Fantasy 11, there is pvp (player vs player) after a certain level you reach with your character. You can also store and select the abilities you want to use however way you want to during battle. The version I played was the PC version that was on display and there was no signs of lagging or glitching. I was playing with 8 people at once doing a boss battle event and we all won with double EXP for the party for the hour. Once I get the playstation 4, then I will play this game in full swing.
