I was pretty curious about this article, largely because its negative and because its from a website that gets a huge amount of traffic.
They noted that the combat is slow, (and I assume at E3 they played the beta version of combat) and not only that but as slow as FF11. (They also didn't like the 3D) I find this particular since everyone seems to act like combat is much faster with the changes and while I've seen at least one gameplay video it didn't seem like the person was really playing it at the speed it could be played at in the demonstration. (But maybe I'm wrong?).
I think Final Fantasy 14's success (and I measure success by doing better than 11) depends on convincing gamers that FF 14 isn't just another FF 11 rehash. One of the largest criticisms of FF11 is the combat speed and if writers are still convinced it as slow as 11 I feel this could negatively impact 14's chances on the market. Theres also few articles out there really talking about FF14 especially compared to Old Republic(which will probably be coming out sometime near the time of FF14 I imagine).
What is everyone else's opinion about this?
