Final Fantasy XI: Scars of Abyssea Review
We may be a step behind in covering this title... that actually puts us about five steps ahead of the FFXIV dev team.
12.12.10 - 11:17 PM

I'm sure you all heard, and perhaps were a part of, the buzz coming from a particular public statement from Square Enix regarding Final Fantasy XIV. It was kind of a big deal.

Meanwhile, their legacy MMORPG, Final Fantasy XI, continues to remain in fairly good standing, despite the rather dated graphics and what I'm sure is a clunky back-end after 8 years of content updates.

While last week saw both the release of the final Abyssea add-on, Heroes of Abyssea, as well as the final story portion of the now three-year-old Wings of the Goddess expansion, we have reviews ready for neither. Instead, we bring you a review of the second of three Abyssea add-ons, Scars of Abyssea, released back in September.

Hey, MMO coverage doesn't come easy!

Expect a very thorough review of Final Fantasy XI: Wings of the Goddess before year-end, as well as a review of Final Fantasy XI: Heroes of Abyssea sometime in January. To hold you over, feel free to send me love/hate mail for my opinions and generalized ranting after having spent way too much time in the [A] forms of Vunkerl, Misareaux, and Attohwa.
