  • Excerpt: Funcom's attempts at making MMORPGs never go quite like the company expects. Starting with Anarchy Online well over a decade ago, their online games have shown a streak of brilliance combined with multiple issues at launch, and unfortunately in the MMO space, that can break the game entirely for some players. I'm not really pleased to say that the same thing has happened again to Funcom with The Secret World , but it has.
