Well I got a trial key for this game and downloaded it the download finished maybe 2 hours ago and since then I've been online.
My computer specs arn't great but not bad either my video card though is definitly lacking:
AMD 4400+ x2 (dual core)
2 GB RAM
Gefroce 7100 GS with 256 MB of vid ram and 256 MB shared ram (making for 512 total)
Of course my video card can't handle the game at maxed out settings so their at low but even at low the terrain is gorgeous by far the best I've ever seen. Characters though? they look plain out...weird. They seem to almost be metalic......I'm not sure if this is an issue with my video card or just some quirk of Vanguard but it's not a huge issue.
I havn't gotten far in terms of gameplay yet but so far it seems to be nice.....but fighting seems a bit generic like I said I havn't gotten far into yet but so far what I've experienced is cookie cut fighting action.
The crafting system I havn't got into yet but it's the whole reason I'm even trying Vanguard and I've heard good things about it.
Edit: the classes are also nice I like the setup and diversity. Also I have experienced no lag so far.
I already hit a huge bump with crafting....
I'm doing the tutorial for blacksmithing and I did everything right have everything eqpuiped and it says I'm missing Smithing when I'm not.
I talked with someone ingame who tried to help me but after an hour of me and him working together he was stumped to so I abdoned it all then reaccepted re went through and same problem.
Good thing though the community is very helpful.
edit 3: I got crafting working on a new toon but couldn't get it working on my old one still. Either way I love the crafting system
So far this game gets a 8/10 and at least for the moment is still holding my interest once I get into crafting I think that rating will go up (or if fighting starts to become unique in any way)
Also if people havn't noticed I update my rating of the game as I go along.
