This is NOT a review just some general info.
Let me start off with saying that i have not played a mmo in the last year for more than 2 weeks at a time.I have revisited old favorites(AO)and played socalled "hits"(WoW or EvE).BTW EvE is a stellar game imho as it does seek to break new ground in a genre dominated by "medievial"times.
It needs change in a desperate way so between CCP and NCSOFT it hopefully will be for the better.
Anyway i purchased AA about a week ago and at 1st i wasnt impressed.The game was laggy as all get out so i adjusted some settings and logged back in to find a smooth running game.
If your tired of fantasy and want some game that is great on all levels then this is the game for you.Take EvE,AO and Fallout and mix in some complex crafting throw in some Madmax for good measure and you have AA.
The game itself numerous classes to choose from but creating a character is not too complex limited choices as far as looks go.I figured it as a bit like EvE in that you spend quite a bit of time in your car.
The graphics and game music are really good as well.Remember when people were complaining about graphics in WoW being dumbed down?Well in AA this is a post apocolyptic world so there is a LOT of dust and garbage and deserted buildings.In other words it is appropriate for its setting.Think somewhere between AO and twisted metal.(but polished up a bit)
Have i mentioned that EVERYTHING is destroyable?(most evrything anyway).
When you blow up a gas barrel it BLOWS up real good!!
Ive not been this excited about logging into a mmo since my 1st.
Remember that feeling?
Well i do too as does the wife.(she is NOT going to like this 1 bit
The game does need some tweaking here and there but what mmo doesnt need it when it 1st launches?
Want to ENJOY an mmo?
Dont start a guild and dont be a leader or volunteer to be coleader or captain.
Just play the damn game:)
