Summary: After playing a few hours of this game, i made up my mind on getting the hard version for the founder benefits. If you want to see the benefits, here is the link [...] When you enter the activation code, make sure to enter it the second time backwards to get the founder status. Having the 8 character slots makes buying the hard version worth it. You'll spend more money if you buy one character slot at a time which is $5. The game itself is pretty good.
Summary: I had gotten this before the game was free to play. However, if you are getting this to have a collection of the physical Box, then it is a great addition to your collection. I'm not sure of the price by the time you read this.

Summary: This is probably the best MMORPG I have played. The combat system is extremely unique for the genre and behaves almost more like a FPS. The graphics are spectacular and the story lines are superb! The game is free to play, but it is totally worth buying the physical copy which provides Founder status. This gives more character slots and more bank space than the free download version from the website.
