  • 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.

Expert Review

GameSpot
11 July 2012
  • Summary: In a genre filled with dryads and dragons, The Secret World emerges as a dark and thoughtful counterpoint to the enchanted forests of most modern online role-playing games. Even when the skies are bright, an emotional cloud hangs over your every action.
  • Pros: Creepy and unique modern-day setting invites you to explore, Intricate writing and lore entries draw you into the ongoing narrative, Investigation quests are an intellectual change of pace, Open-ended combat system allows for experimentation, Fantastic sound design
  • Cons: Movement and combat are floaty and unsatisfying, Unacceptable quest bugs and execution flaws lead to major frustrations, Disappointing player-versus-player
