It's the first and only MMO for the 360, give it some slack, it's already been around for years so you can't expect anything greater than a high resolution port. Personally I don't like the game but there are some who absolutely adore this.

It's built on the same graphics engine and is working much better than the PC- or the PS2-version - framerate, and probably graphics. They can't of course add objects as it would be considered as cheating for us X360-owners, and the draw distance is as good as the bandwith can deliver.

The misstake wasn't to don't upgrade the game as they did, the misstake was to decide to release the game for X360 in the first place. Square should have thought about this. Microsoft should have thought about this. They should have remembered Phantasy Star Online.

what could MS possibly do, forbid it to be released for the xbox and send a bad message to all japanese developers about game quality? I think it's an asshat move of squeenix but they can keep making their cg movie and ff games but don't pretend like you care about one system with this releasing a hit game several years later with no improvements whatsoever. But whatever.

Man they might aswell make a PS2 emulator for the Xbox 360 if they want to get this kind of crap on the 360(not that Sony would ever approve it). I mean if they really wan't to release the game with this type of quality... what the hell are the waiting for then? I mean it's obviously a direct port, nothing has really changed... why wasn't this released at the Japanese launch?

Terrible, however this may ease some PS2 gamers getting to XB360 while keeping their PS2 FFXI chars.

:) seems im the only one happy about this game coming to the 360..

This game is huge and would take way too long to upgrade the graphics, Many fans of this series won't stop playing because of a new generation, so SE are releasing it for 360 and PS3.

MMO's aren't about graphics they are about gameplay and online comunnity.

If you don't like it, *or the look of it* then don't buy it ...

As Manager said it runs better on the 360 when you have 40-50 chracters on screen at once most PC's and ever PS2 would come to a holt..

I played the Beta and it was a waste of time in the end for me, in fact everyone I used to play with stopped playing the game cause they agreed with me. And even if I liked the game I'd never buy it and play it often cause of the subscription.

The game just isn't as fun as other MMOrpgs, stuff you do feels like a chore and most missions I've played are long and boring. I'd rather play Guild Wars, WOW and even the Matrix Online over this game any day.

Yea i agree as a low level player FFXI can be very boring, but once you get to level 30 it gets more fun.

If you don't put much into FFXI you won't get much out of it .. WOW on the otherhand is a game that you don't need to put so much effort into but really has no story or purpose.

SE could do with adding more content for low level players ..

Not entirely true, anything of some sort of significance (artifact quests, level cap quests, missions, sky) all require use of a full group or alliance and you will always need a white mage (healer) to get anything done.

The game was fun for a bit for me (had 5 level 75 jobs) but after a while it feels a lot more like a chore or job rather than a game where you are having fun.

Chocobos looked never better!

The game looks great for an update of an existing game.

Instead of all you guys whinning over the game..think of the concept behind it.

THIS IS SQUAREENIX! and they released one of their most successful games for the XBOX 360!!!!!!

Final fantasy 11 for the xbox360 is just squareenix's testing game of the console's potential..they obviously released this game to see if it's worth spending time and money in creating new games for it..since xbox was a failure..

Because of the reaction held by FF11's demo and how people are embracing xbox360 more than they did xbox in japan..square is taking notice on it more..and tada! we have Sylph!

You guys should appreciate what we got! this is amazing..final fantasy on xbox360..hell this could mean we might even have final fantasy 13 ported over on xbox360..or better yet a final fantasy game solely for xbox360.

take out the "Square Enix", and "succesful", and what do you have?
An RPG.

It may be a good RPG, but the other arguments here hold much water.
(i.e, yes it looks like doo).

I don't know, maybe you're right, this endeavor may lead to greater things, but I'd rather think it's a cash in, or experiment.

Oh ofcourse it's an experiment..end of the day..companies are out there for profit..even if you and i are in squareenix's position..we would do the same.

we wouldn't shell out our hard earned cash and money on a console that might be doomed to failure..we might only do that on a console that guarentees huge sales and profits.. SquareEnix doesn't want to ignore xbox360..it has potential and they can see it..

They are just showing their support and just saying " if you do good..we will make games for you..epic ones"..

But this is never the less, great news..SquareEnix on xbox360..wow..one of japans biggest companies..so big they're games are system sellers..and they were sony's exclusive last gen! this is great anyway..the future looks bright for xbox360 and square.

This game is technically very lacking--I understand that it is an MMO and that they "had" to use the same assets across the board..but is the thier technology really so limited that using a different texture pack on the 360 would break game compatability? Also, as much draw distance as bandwidth will allow? Whose bandwidth? If that's the reason why then how come there are so many other MMO's built for windows that smash that draw distance? Would it have been impossible to atleast FILTER some of those textures?

Every short comming that this game has can be blamed on the way they developed it--they made this game for the PC--with the PS2 in mind..and then ported to the Xbox 360..and that is quite a handy-cap for a "new" game to have.

It is fun though, and the art direction is fantastic (my favorite FF art..Square should fire every artist except Amano)..but it doesn't look great for an update to an existing game--because really--it doesn't look updated.

If Blizzard were to port WoW to the 360, it would look dated as well, but it would still sell. Personally, I think we should all be hoping FFXI sells like hotcakes, as it increases the chances of more (hopefully original) Square games actually making it to the system. That said, I think it would be wise of Square to sell the game at a lower price tag, given the dated nature of the visuals (they'd make up the cash from subscribers anyways...).
