The Final Fantasy XI Starter pack is a great way to experience the game without having to pay the full retail price for the game. When I was deciding whether or not to purchase FFXI, I came across the starter pack, and thought that it suited my needs perfectly. I wasn't sure if I would have the time to play the game, since I have two children under the age of 2. The starter pack enabled me to try the game without having to commit to paying the full price for the regular game, or without having to commit to the monthly fee. The starter pack includes a 30 day trial of the popular MMORPG (massive multi-player online role-playing game) Final Fantasy XI (FFXI). Inside the package is the DVD-Rom disc, which allows you to install the Playonline viewer and the full game of FFXI. Also included are the registration codes needed to setup your account. The starter pack is great, it allowed me to get into a really great game populated by thousands of people. If you are looking for a game to play that allows you to associate with many real live characters but not willing to pay full price for something you may not like, then this is definately for you.
