I started playing AA shortly after launch.
After playing so many mmo's i was prepared to be dissapointed.I was wrong.
In a nutshell the game is a cross between AO,Eve Online,and a 1st person shooter with some unigue crafting options available to all players.
YOU should be playing AA because get this its actually FUN!!
I havent felt this excited about an mmo since i played AO.
Dont pay attention to the reports of low pop servers there are plenty of people playing this game.
Anyhow here is my top 10.
1.Its a good scifi game.
2.Addictive gameplay style.
3.Most everything is destroyable.
4.Lots of drops.
5.No ogres,trolls,elves or darkelves or any of the trappings of a fantasy setting.
6.Unique crafting system.
7.The ability to create new and unique items.
8.All the BEST items are player created.
9.No death penalty.This is a plus for casual players.Yeah i know been there done that.I dont have time for harsh death penalties or a corpse run so i dont have a problem with it.
10.ACTION.This is the most action packed mmo ive ever played.
Not to mention that if it s seen as a "hit" it will help to push the genre forward a bit and may get more scifi titles produced.
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:)
