2.0 out of 5 stars Pretty, but boring, 13 Dec 2013
= Fun:2.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Final Fantasy XIV Online (PS3) (Video Game)
I'll keep this as short as possible

Good Points:

1. Very Good Graphics and Fluid Game Play.
2. Nice Music.
3. There are a lot of items and armor to craft and upgrade.
4. It's Final Fantasy.

Bad Points:
1. There is basically no voice over in this game outside the main story line, you will find yourself quickly bored with the monotonous side quests and skipping through meaningless text dialog.
2.Character Customization is pretty basic and crippling if your an imaginative sort.
3.There aren't really many character classes to choose from.
4.The combat feels unspectacular at best, it involves routinely pressing buttons in almost the same pattern for maximum damage. Character attacks are unimpressive.
5.There are a lot of items to craft, but.....in order to craft them you need to level up in that class. This involves creating hundreds of items and takes hours to do. This seemed novel and interesting at first but quickly became a chore.
6.What hindered my experience of this game the most was the lack of voice communication as I have a group of friends I play with and enjoy chatting to and joking with. Tapping messages on a keyboard hooked up to the PS3 is outdated and somewhat boring.

Sadly all in all I found some of the free to play MMORPG's far superior and more fun to play than this game and did not think this game was worth a subscription charge at all. If the charge was dropped and voice communication was added I would definitely return to this game.

I hoped this helped.
