    After reading all the reviews of how horrible the UI is, I think I'll pass.

    Yeah UI is bad confirmed. World is nice though you are right. But just like anything the UI you get used to. I will level and sell and make a few bucks though as usual. Just wanted some one to hang with.

    I played it and got to rank 14. Didn't feel like starting over after beta so didn't buy the game.

    The best thing about FFXIV are the footsteps, turn up your speakers and listen to how realistic they are on different terrain, I notice the weirdest stuff apparently.

    I really tried to bring myself to enjoy any aspect of this game during the beta, but I couldn't find anything redeeming. The graphics are indeed nice, but that isn't enough of an allure to players anymore. Games need to have depth, and there are too many things in FFXIV that will be restrictive to players.

    Many different game review sites have been hammering FFXIV with low scores--deservedly so. With all the knowledge of what works and doesn't work in the MMO industry, it's a shame to see a title this rushed and underdeveloped.

    In an article I just read from Massively featuring two FFXIV producers, Eliot Lefebvre states, "Sundi and Kurosawa both mentioned that while they want to improve the interface on the PC, they also need to make sure that the interface works for both PCs and the PS3, which means that there are limited options for how many changes they can make. Balancing the needs of both systems leads to certain compromises."

    I don't know about the rest of you, but I'm tired of compromises. I'm sure that's why we're all here.

    It looks terrible. How they made it worse than final fantasy 11 i have no idea.
    Square have lost the plot FF 11,12,13 and now 14 the list of crappy final fantasy games continues

    Watched the review on gametrailer and checked a couple of others. The game...is epicly broken
    Its a shame because im kind of a huge fan of a the series so its kind of a blow.

    I will give it a couple of months then try it.
