Now that's what I call a Collector's Edition!
on 27 August 2013
First of all, I've bought a lot of collectors editions in the past, and I have to say this is one of the best!
The box itself is HUGE. Beautiful illustrations on the front, looks very sleek and sophisticated. It also comes with a nice (mini) soundtrack CD, some really lovely art cards, 4 in game items, and a Blu-Ray disc which tells the story of the first game. It also comes with a security token (which are worth £8.99 on their own!) as a bonus to protect your account security. Well worth it in my opinion.
The game itself is outstanding as well. I tried XIV in it's first outing, and couldn't have been more bored. Really excited by how they have changed the game and recreated it into something really special. Yes there have been issues with early access and login limitations, errors have indeed abounded, but those will be sorted out. I don't think anyone realised quite how big this launch would be, especially as it's first iteration was an out-and-out flop.
Teething problems at the beginning are to be expected, but don't let that spoil what is a really fabulous game.
