After finally having time to review the NcSoft game, WildStar, I am quite content with not 'missing a thing'.
NcSoft is one of my trusted gaming companies and has my highest level of respect, admiration and loyalty. I can not help but feel that WildStar, a dream that happened far too late in time, is out-of-date.
I truly wanted to not feel stoic -if that is even possible and sided on the fact that everything is already done.
As I plowed through fifty quests and looked down at my progress, I nodded and thought, 'Ok...Level 10 isn't that bad for four hours of play'. Then I decided, if this were the year 2000 it would make sense. So, I deleted my character and tried a new class... same results. While I didn't expect to reach end-game in four hours, I expected to feel my class divide from being 'noob' to class development. After deleting my third character, I realized that my first character felt more like my play style, Engineer. So, within a couple hours, I was staring at level 10 again... nothing spectacular, just one of many levels.
I then decided to look at end-game play and saw myself repeating level 10 over and over again in my mind.
The classes are awesome! The lore is superb. The content is endless... nothing short of NcSoft's genius. But... I'm still level 10.
Level 10.... Level 10....
For those who enjoy the game, there is nothing wrong with that, I speak for myself. I'm going to put the game on the shelf and wait for the next NcSoft release.
