I have just been looking over my new home for the coming years. Funcom allowed their pre-orders access to The Secret World today. It was a day that I have both been looking forward to and dreading. Looking forward to because to me TSW is the only game this year that shows an ounce of originality, all the rest are just reiterations of a worn and played to death formula. Dreading it because as has been posted on these forums again and again, Funcom has had a few shaky launches.
Well, I am glad to say, it works, they've done it. Apart from a pretty annoying delay in claiming your preorder items, I couldn't find any glitches. They have delivered on their promises, animations have been improved. Character generation has been improved. There were no problems logging on to the server, but boy was it packed. Kingsmouth was teeming with players getting their feet wet and slaying zombies like there was no tomorrow, still, lag was not an issue I noticed. As an Nvidia owner, I did not experience any glaring graphical glitches. Combat animations have been improved, there is more weight to the weapons now, active dodge is in...
4 hours of playtime is not enough to do this game justice and write a proper review, but I thought I would share my experiences as there has been a lot of negative posts regarding this game. It is not everyones cup of tea, you actually need some patience, but it is a beautifully fleshed out universe. The amount of detail, especially lore wise is just staggering.
I just hate that I have to go to work in the morning, otherwise I would stay in TSW until the break of dawn. Funcom, you finally did it, two thumbs up for going above and beyond my expectations.
And now, I will leave this thread and pass the word to others that have played the early access, how has your experience been? Similar experiences, or am I just a smitten fanboy (I admit, Funcom has a special place in my gaming heart).
Good night, and may your path always be well lit, and the shadows weak and terrified.
