I played Final Fantasy XI and loved it. Since all my friends are moving away and I work a night shift sometimes I'm thinking about playing this game. If I liked Final Fantasy XI would I like this game? What's different? What's the same? Is it so tedious to level up? Does this game have things in common with other Final Fantasy game?

Pretty much I'm asking what to expect from this game, because I don't want a get a computer that will run The Old Republic and just get it for PS3 (I don't care if it's inferior or whatever.)

It is becoming more and more similar to FFXI, which some people are not happy with. However, I find that the underlying feel of the game is much different.

I can log on and advance with minimal time. I can gain levels without a party fairly easily.

In these ways it is the opposite of FFXI, at least the FFXI when I left it.

However, over time the lack of key features becomes more and more apparent. There are ways to work around most things for now, but if you do have the patience for things that are not fully complete, you would be best off waiting for more of the patches to be implemented, or even the PS3 release.

I can tell you that lately there are more and more people having a great time playing. But even those of us who are palying are waiting for the day when we can finally tell our friends honestly that FFXIV is now an awesome game. Not quite there yet.

Does FFXIV have in common with other Final Fantasy games? Yeah, I guess. It has more of a Final Fantasy-ish feel than XIII had.

If you played FFXI, you'll be feeling a lot of time like "wow this feature was so great in FFXI, why did they murder it/take it away/change it", once you get past that, it's not all bad, there's just not all that much to do yet.
