FINAL FANTASY XI is the first online game in the award-winning FINAL FANTASY series. How you play is up to you, with limitless possibilities for adventure. Set out on your own to discover the countless secrets of Vana'diel, or form a party with your friends to purge the beastman forces and bring home sensational spoils!
The world of Vana'diel stands at the brink of war. Three powerful nations, united in their plight against the beastmen forces, look to their last hope -- brave adventurers like you!
Will the beastmen gain the upper hand, and thrust the once-peaceful Vana'diel into another war? Step into the world of Vana'diel and journey forth on grand adventures with players from all across the globe!
The first step in your adventure is to create your character's traits, including race, gender, face, hair color, body size, job, and nationality. This will become your on-screen "alter ego" in the world of FINAL FANTASY XI.
The classic Job System of the FINAL FANTASY series returns in FINAL FANTASY XI. You can acquire a wide variety of abilities with various jobs -- and even discover new jobs as you play!
Rumor has it that with the proper training, Vana'diel adventurers can become paladins, bards, and rangers. What other jobs will you be able to discover?

This game was one of the first MMORPGS I played, and it was one of the best. The reason I had to stop playing is because of the insane grind factor, though that is essentially what MMORPGs are. The fact that 75% (made up statistic) of the players on when I played speaked Japanese didn't help matters either. The combat system was great and working well with a group was important. I'll always have memories from this game, but it is getting quite dated now.

I personally do not own this game but seen it played. it was a very well done addition to the FF world that I have played in many times in all the FF releases for nintendo up to the sony playstation. I am a fan of the FF series and will be for a long time.
Awsome game! The best online RPG ever played. I bought it 1 week ago and played 50hours and i'm not ready to stop there, I'm sure that I just done 1% of the game. If you like online game, and the Final Fantasy Series, you must buy it!
I am currently taking a break from the game, however I will definitely be starting it up again in 2 or 3 weeks. This game is very well done. I have not had any technical issues with it. If you buy a PS2 to USB converter (Not sure if NCIX carries these), the game will be much easier to control since it was designed around the PS2 controller, not the keyboard. Great game, especially for those who love FF style games.
