After playing the reborn Final Fantasy XIV for nearly three years, each expansion feels like a game of give and take. They're very good, but tend to fall into the same routine as the base game. That's not so much of an issue if that routine is a winning one.
Stormblood doesn't do much to shake up the general design Final Fantasy XIV has followed since its relaunch, but never before have its familiar elements worked quite so well. You'll find some boring sidequests, yes, but it makes up for that flaw with an unforgettable story filled with moving cutscenes and acting, great new primal fights and dungeons, two wonderful new combat classes, and new lands that reward the explorer in us all.
Ultimately, I found Stormblood to be something of a letdown after the brilliance of Heavensward. It's still a good expansion in its own right, and I loved the vast majority of the instanced content (particularly the trials and raids), but the uneven main story, dull new zones, and some of the lackluster music means that it doesn't quite reach the bar set by its predecessor.
