Review: The Secret World (PC)

GameAxis
11 October 2012
  • Excerpt: With no classes, no levels and no high fantasy setting, The Secret World was something that looked set to stir things up in the MMORPG cauldron. While the MMORPG is a genre I have little time for now, Funcom promised this would be special. And special it really is. Yet for all its strengths and courage, I couldn’t help but walk away from the piles of undead feeling disappointed.

  • Excerpt: Have you ever played a game that you wanted desperately to like, yet you knew was inherently flawed? That’s how I felt playing Funcom’s The Secret World – for the past month or so, I’ve desperately tried to find redeeming qualities for this game. But before I talk about what ruined it for me, let’s talk about what I loved so much about it. Firstly, the game’s writing is superb.

The Secret World review

GamesRadar
12 September 2012
  • Excerpt: World of Warcraft launched eight years ago, and MMORPGs still don't know what to do with themselves. It's no longer enough to just clone WoW, if it ever was, and the genre's massive shift toward a free-to-play revenue model has developers scrambling to reinvent yesterday's premium games as sufficiently alluring freebies.
  • Pros: Original world-building, fun writing, Tons of valid build possibilities, Promise of long-term updates
  • Cons: Flimsy, unsatisfying combat, Repetition kills the fun factor, Some free-to-play titles execute better

The Secret World Gaming and Performance Review

Hi Tech Legion
20 August 2012
  • Summary: In my opinion, one of the greatest MMORPG games was the original release of Star Wars Galaxies, not World of Warcraft. I’ll admit, WOW is one of the most successful MMOs in history, but not the best in terms of quality and game play. WOW is, ultimately, an equipment based, raiding game. Star Wars Galaxies contained so many good things. There was an in depth dynamic crafting system.

The Secret World (PC)

  • Excerpt: I have a real fear of playing massively multiplayer online games. From what I’ve heard and seen is that they have a real ability to turn your life-upside down and tap away at your free time until you have nothing left. Plus, it doesn’t sound like a lot of fun grinding hour upon hour only to get to the endgame.

Violent MMO has drugs, sex, and cursing; for mature players.

Common Sense Media
5 August 2012
  • Summary: Parents need to know that The Secret World is a Mature-rated MMORPG (Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game). The game has to be purchased and a monthly subscription is required to play beyond the first month. Bloody violence, sexual encounters, smoking, drinking, drug use, religious cults, and casual cursing in voiced content are all found in this game.

  • Conclusion: I can’t say whether you should pay a subscription for The Secret World , but if you do despite some quibbles of mine this is a world you will enjoy being part of. Albeit not a very secret one though.
