I'll be honest - I don't want to take this poll because I was actually expecting more voice acting. I guess I am spoiled by games like Oblivion, Fallout, and Fable where nearly everything is voice acted.
I guess I had higher expectations for XIV since they were so intent on using top of the line technology. I didn't expect that so much of the game would still rely on in-game text and the occasional cut scene.
I remember when I first started out in the Alpha test and was blown away by the intro scene coming in to Limsa. The graphics, the music, the way the characters were modeled and animated, the voice acting... I thought to myself "well, this is going to be a winner". Then I got into Limsa itself and was let down by the lack of this polish present throughout the rest of the time I was in game. The quest scenes were nice, but no better than XI's are (ignoring obvious engine improvements). I put this down to the nature of the Alpha.
Then time progressed and we entered Beta. Much to the same, the quality of the opening/intro scene was not brought through with the rest of the game. Again, I put it down to being a test. Later in the Beta the other two cities were made available. Again, quality intro scenes, and again not continued. My heart truely sank when, after a week of playing the released live game, I encountered none of that polish anywhere else in the game. SE had stated they were using voice acting, but to date the only source of said acting I have encountered has been in the opening scene and I have a suspicion that it is all there is.
This made my hark back to Age of Conan. I still feel that Tortage, the newbie area, is the most polished, slick, well presented starting area of any MMO made to date. You're in the story, you're part of it. The whole context of your character being where s/he is is brought to life by imaginative story telling through great voice acting and cut scenes. Then you exit, realise the rest of the game is just like any other MMO and can't help but feeling disappointed.
