Summary: Many folks have rated this game as 5 stars and the only thing I can guess at is they have not played any really good games so they don't know any better. The controls and the ability to set them up is 1 star at the best but Funcom has never been known for setting up good controls. Anarchy online one of there other games was still very good even with poor control setup. I have to wonder if this one was setup by the same people.
Summary: Word of advice, Do not buy this game, it is one of the worst MMO's i have ever played, think of World of Warcraft only with guns andmake the animations sloppy and the movement boxy, even i thought World of warcraft was better than this, and i hate that now, I played this for about 20 minutes before i stopped and cancled my subscription,seriously, when someone sais "oh, its worth buying just for the story.
Summary: This game is worthless, there really is no one playing. Character creation is pretty bad. So pretty much all chaacters look the same. The faction thing which was supposed to make it great, does not seem to matter at all. Its a constant grind mmo with no lasting appeal to keep people playing.
Summary: This game has some great original ideas, I was really looking forward to making it a new gaming 'home' for a while. It ended up being a surprisingly huge disappointment though. The bugs are bad and the lack of basic MMO features is mind boggling. - This game has no functioning auction house. It launched without one because Funcom couldn't get it working properly. One month after launch, there was a patch to put an auction house in..
Summary: There is nothing lasting about this game. Factions which they make a big deal about don't matter at all. Chacter creation is horrible. And so called great combat is very bland. It is a typical mmo with no lasting features, constant grinding and no real feel like your doing anything important.
Summary: I'm gonna keep this short and sweet. Amazon does not allow zero stars, so I was "forced" to give this game a one star review. This game might be fun to play in 3 to 5 years after the bugs have been worked out. This game will not play after almost 23 hours of updating and reloading and no, I did not call tech support. Shouldn't have to since the game was designed to play on my computer with my OS. Buyer beware. You may be disappointed by purchasing this game.
Summary: I love everything The Secret World is trying to bring to the table. I enjoy Lovecraftian settings and stories, and The Secret World brings some of the moods and themes of Lovecraft's stories to the MMO space. The game looks, plays, and feels like a love letter to Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines, which is one of my favorite games.
Summary: I was lucky enough to be a closed beta tester for this game, so I didn't have to waste any money on it to learn what those who purchase is are going to learn. It is a mess in so many ways. Graphics: Absolutely nothing to see here. It looks like a 5 year old game. Story Telling: Not bad, but not great.
Summary: There are some serious bugs in the way the game downloads and patches (basically it requires multiple simultaneous ports open to work) and many folks can have an issue with this; especially if you use AVG virus checker. I know you want the game right away but PLEASE order the DVD version! Avoid the possible headaches as you will get NO HELP from Amazon or Funcom (lots of finger pointing). Again ...
