Ten Ton Hammer Contributing Writer Ralsu recently traveled to San Francisco to take part in a special pre-GamesCom hands-on preview of Final Fantasy XIV. From the article:
"Several aspects set Final Fantasy XIV apart from other MMOs. Mechanics, particularly the controls, may act as a hurdle to the mildly interested gamer who tried to pick up the game and jump right into play. The reward for learning a unique system is high for players who want an engaging story from a game that values player skill over time spent online. "
New details on the much talked about FFXIV control scheme, two never before seen cities, and our first ever experience with level 40 grouped content highlight our newest Final Fantasy XIV Hands-On Preview!
