Summary: Love, love, love this game. Been waiting for years for something to be as difficult as Vanilla/BC WoW or FFXI - the game is really fun, leveling - raiding - world bosses - tradeskills - gathering. You name it - it's fun. The amount of content on release is ridiculous. I'm busy all time in the game - and I didn't get to 50 in two days.... it actually took a couple weeks! GASP! It's fun, buy it. It's worth it.
Summary: You should buy this game, whoever is reading this. Perhaps you were searching for something else, and this game showed up in the list for some reason. No, it's not a garden implement, that's true. But your garden can grow profitably next year. This year you should play this game instead. Plus less dirty hands. Plus hoverboards. Like in Back to the Future>>. Plus you can have a garden in this game.
Summary: Due to my own fault I didn't realize there was a subscription at it's current price... with that said I think the game is put together well and think others will enjoy it. The vast majority of bad reviews happen to be those who haven't leveled all the way or even played the game so I suggest trying it out for yourself. The biggest complaint I find true would be the graphics. The actual objects and characters are modern, it's the landscape that people have an issue with.
Summary: All the elements you'd want in an MMO and more. For the full effects, it is extremely demanding on a processor and video card. It is cartoony. With ground targeting attacks instead of selective targeting, skill based players will enjoy the PvP. Nice change in crafting. It is more of a 'build what you want/need' system. I have 3 characters so far with 20 being th highest and all three have been fun to play. Plan on adding at least 1 more so I can experience all 4 'Paths'.
