Unless you are an explicit sadomasochist...
To sum the game up
-Good character customization(lots of races and lots of classes, which is cool)
-Bad graphics (not unforgivable, but Dungeon Siege on the PSP looks better for goodness sake),
-ATROCIOUS coding (get stuck in a bush. Use /stuck. Walk away for 5 seconds. Get teleported back to bush. Repeat until you get tired and exit. Log back in. Teleport back to bush. Not even mentioning the floating buildings and general torturous process of moving)
-HORRIBLE lag (in the sense of lag so bad the game is unplayable.. It takes at least 5 mins to load a (rather large admitedly) tile of terrain on a broadband connection
, and the whole move 100 metres teleport back 50 metres due to latency, jump forward 25 metres, run in the opposite direction where you clicked issue. On top of that, combat is often impossible as you click the skill to use, the casting animation starts and... nothing (excepting getting lag killed by the monster of course, and losing all the items in your inventory in the process). Lag out in a strife zone and you are dead (No, wait, you are dead when you enter a strife zone anyways, because there are always 10 max lvls ganking people, but more on that later)
-Mental servers ( Up.... Down.............. Up. No DOWN.. U..No, wait still down)
-Generic skills/combat system (excepting the party/siege system. And flight(which is rather cool)
-Ridiculous amounts of traveling (have to spend 10 mins minimum running to a place to grind, not mentioning the fact that you will most likely get killed at the grind zone, as soloing is not a smart idea, and any group will be 100 times more likely to kill you and loot your body than help you)
-THE WORST COMMUNITY I HAVE SEEN IN ANY GAME EVER!
(Wish there were more effects that I could apply to this text, as it cannot be over emphasized. In the painfull week I wasted playing this, this monstrousity, 5 people (no, I over exaggerate) 2 people actually used the chat channels! Nobody talks, ever! Not in party chat, not in guild chat, not in class chat, not in local chat... Maybe an ad for a gold-selling website or item now and then, but other than that nothing. I have not found 1 helpful person in the entire game, only ganking high levels that try their very best to make the game as unpleasant as possible. And the worst is, it is impossible to level after you leave the safety area, as you cannot get to a grinding zone without getting ganked (Oh yes, they say "Join a strong guid, they will help you"
good one! Try that, I beg of you. After you succeed you should fly to the moon and fetch eggs from the silver pigs that live there, as for to have the delusion that someone is going actually help you you have to be on either very illegal drugs or another plane of existence..)
Maybe, just maybe I would be able to play the game if the community was not composed of (lets save the obscenities) , but until then I would rather make parmezan of my testicles...
