I broke down and bought the game. Great so far...but man..the instancing. They should call this game Pocket Worlds. I hear so much complaining about instancing and lack of an open world in other MMos and then this comes out...and so many seem to like it so much. People who complained that SWTOR was instanced to hell yet dont find this worse in that way...are talking out of their arse.
Only thing that has really bothered me so far is instancing...usually it doesnt but this game seems extreme with the "swirling portals".
Combats cool. Wish it wasnt tab targetting and more like TERA or RaiderZ but still very fun imo. I like the gradual upgrade and unlocks of skills without seeing a trainer. I know you'll need tol ater for some things but not at the beginning.. The items you can pick up off the ground and use (RaiderZ does this too). All add a little something different and keeps it a bit fresh. The community areas/quests are great. Mobs dont seem to fuck around here...and the last ditch efforts (downtime recovery) is great.
I like the customization....right now I'd say its "baby bear". Just right. Though more is always good with customizing an avatar. I especially like that you can change the basic colors (the ones you have a choice of in character creation) of your gear without paying in the market.
Quests and stories are engaging enough and the world looks fantastic. I have 3.4 ghz cpu i7 2600..8 gig ram..win7 (64)..gtx580 and it runs great. Usually 45-60 with vert sync on with all settings maxed. Pretty bad server lag at times but it just launched so that will clear up I'm sure.
I haven't made it too far yet....10th level Char Warrior....5th level Human thief....but I think I can safely recommend the game to those who are not all about end game.. Hell if its no hurry for you wait a few months..I'm sure the box price will drop....as it does with most games ("fail" or not). then its smooth sailing. The shop doesnt seem to have much of importance ..well...it really has nothing you need..so this can truly be B2P.
Well just a quick 2 cents at the start...
