I played Tri and World. I don't like how World is so much more grindy. Tri gave the player access to almost all gem types from the start, so you could really get a synergized build going at low levels. World withholds most of the good gems/armor until you've ground out 100 hours of gameplay. Tri had armor sets that made sense and did good things even at low levels. World requires you to mix and match different armor in order to get an optimized build. Tempered fights in World are the only way to get really useful gems, such as size 3 gems. So you have to play for some 300 hours if you want a perfect build. I had that at the 120 mark in Tri.
Finally, too many monsters in World fly around forever. It's really annoying even if you have a bunch of flash to down them with.
Edit: One thing I really do like about World is that it uses missions to make grinding for rare parts easier. Now, if only they could do the same when it came to grinding for gems. =/
