Only hard-core who commit long-term and love mind-numbing grind need apply

Summary: Don't get me wrong, I really like this game for a lot of reasons but I equally dislike many aspects of it, as well. And it definitely isn't a game for casual players. Best thing about the game? Hands down, it's the modern day, modern dress setting.
Summary: Okay, ever since I've seen this game on sale on steam last year, I've always been curious about trying it out. But after skimming through reviews and opinions about it, I always decided it's not worth wasting $20-30 on a game I could hate.
Summary: If you love the cathartic, "find yellow punctuation marks, click stuff, get loot" format of WoW-like MMO's, you will find a good amount of that in the Secret World. However, there are also quests that make you think outside of the box and look at the game world in unique ways.
Typical grinding MMO, button spamming combat and content that hasn't been done before.

Summary: When I bought this game I had thought that the setting was interesting and the lore would be the greatest draw, a kind of Vampire the Masquerade Bloodlines MMO. I was wrong. Although the writing does a decent job of pushing you forward that actual content is ninety nine percent what you would find...
Summary: I just got this game a week ago and i'm really enjoying it. The game kind of feels like a resident evil just because you're fighting zombies and monsters. The missions are really interesting and will keep you hooked. I've been bouncing around mmos for awhile.
Summary: I know for a fact that Windows 8 is the problem. With 8 gb of memory and 2 gb of dedicated video memory the hardware should handle the game. Once I get downgraded to Windows 7 I should be fine.
Pros: Graphics look good
Cons: My laptop is running Windows 8.1 and the game freezes to the point of having to restart the computer.
Awesome setting and environments, great mechanics, terrific occult/end-times themes and references to cult and pulp stories.

Summary: 30-second flavor intro: The Secret World (TSW): Join a secret society in resisting the coming darkness, fight back against the horror-harbingers of the apocalypse, and discover your hidden power over melee, guns, and magic.
Summary: I love this mmo. It isn't your normal "go collect rat tails" or "wake up the sleeping workers" type mmo. It is a go through a portal, pick up your shotgun and start blasting the zombies and mutants that spawned around this little town and help the survivors type mmo. And that is fantastic.
Summary: Very Unique game and great game play. I'm a long time MMO player since eq1 and a bit tired of the sword and sorcery games. This game is fresh, with great in depth stories and story line. By far my favorite MMO.
