Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn

The virtual world of Eorzea is so real that players stop fighting just to admire the scenery. Unlike other Final Fantasy games, this one lets you play multiple classes using the same character. Switch your weapon and you change the class - from archer to warrior, when you swop bow for axe. This excellent reboot infuses the storytelling and lore of the Final Fantasy series into the trappings of a modern MMORPG.
