I did not play ATITD I or II, so when I say NEW I really mean NEW!
Let me start by saying that after about 4 hours of gameplay I am beginning to get the hang of it, and can see how a game without PVP or PVE can be enjoyable. However, if you are a hardcord FPS gamer than I doubt that you will find anything of interest here. On the other hand, if you like RPG or Strategy them this could appeal to you.
The game was developed by a much smaller team than other MMORPGs, and it shows. There is no manual. The initial quest, to become a Citizen, is meant to be a tutorial but it took me over half an hour of play, and a couple of posts on a player forum to accomplish the first, very simple, task. My problem was that I was supposed to gather slate near the shoreline. (There is lots of it) But I couldn't find any! NADA! My problem was that I expected to find it in, or near, the water's edge. After all there was other stuff there. But, for some reason, the devs made it so that when your character passes over slate a small icon at the top right of the screen appears BRIEFLY! (Unless you happen to stop right on top of it.)
However, once I had that figured out the rest of the Citizenship quest went smoothly, and I am now about 80% of the way thru it. There is talk of a manual being produced. I hope it doesn't take long. In a previous life I wrote (business) software and recall learning that the best software is that where the dev writes the manual first! Then codes the app to match up with the manual. These devs must have been working from a story line--it might have been wise to turn that into a manual before starting to code.
Ah well, if only I were the king....
Conclusion--you will either love or hate this game depending on your genre preferences. I suspect I am going to love it.
