This review is from: Final Fantasy XIV - A Realm Reborn (PS3) (Video Game)
After playing on the PS4 beta and enjoying it a lot i decided to get this for my PS3 to upgrade in April. Even on the PS3 the graphics are beautiful. All 3 starting cities are well designed and look stunning.

The main story is interesting and makes you feel a part of the world. Even the side quests make you feel involved and not like they are just tacked on as filler. The dialogue is well written and is funny in parts although i would draw your attention to the fact it has a 16 certificate. There is quite a bit of swearing in it at times but nothing that most kids wont have heard anyway. Just be aware its not for younger children.

I havent played all the classes yet but the ones i have feel unique and not like in other games where they feel too similar. Crafting is also more involved than your regular "collect materials and press button" way of doing it.

The dungeons i have been in were fun and actually require tactics to do the harder stuff.

There seem to be regular updates that add a lot. Today patch 2.2 was released with an immense amount of content, almost enough to be an expansion for other games.

If like me you have been playing MMOs for a long time, back as far as Ultima and Everquest, and you are bored of the same old stuff then Final Fantasy A Realm Reborn is worth a look at.

Playing on a controller felt weird at first but now i actually prefer it to keyboard and mouse. It is still playable using those on a PS3 though and i would still suggest having a keyboard for chatting as using the controller to talk to people is near impossible.

An important note about playing with a keyboard and mouse on the PS3 so that whoever reads this review doesn't buy the game expecting full K+M support..

You can't really play with a keyboard and mouse on the PS3. Yes, you can still control the cursor and move your character around with the mouse, but the UI is designed for using a controller and I think you can't assign commands to keys.

The PS4 version (that you'll be able to upgrade to for free if you have the PS3 version) is the one that will have full K+M support.
