This is the second of a multi part review. And honestly it's the best I've seen for XIV. I read the first one, and he seemed lost and dissapointed, but seemed to be keeping an open mind. In this one we get a bit more done than the first (and a shoutout to ZAM). Overall I wish all MMO reviews were like this (some sites won't review until X amount of time played which leads to an out of date review, or will only play for 5 minutes and destroy any chance a product has of being tried by folks who only use one source). I really like the style and effort.
The review shows most of the flaws we complain about, but doesn't completely trash the game. And besides as I said, there's a quick blurb about ZAMs awesomeness.
