So, this came up from
read the first few pages of the thread if you want. But to sum it up, this guy reviewed most games from level 1-10 and people are replying that he has no basis to make a review.
If I'm not enjoying the game from the beginning then why do I need to torture myself to get to "end cap" to see the "real" game? WTF? Why can't the WHOLE GAME BE THE REAL GAME
Thats why I hate themepark MMOs so much, its always the "end" game that is the "best". Sandbox style MMOs (UO, Pre-ruined SWG, Asheron's Call, Saga of Ryzom, Vanguard and the few other sandbox MMOs) hooked me right from the beginning.
So yes, you can judge a game from level 1-10 because if a game doesn't start to level 60 or 80 or whatever, then it isn't worth playing, why torture yourself through the "fake" game. A sandbox game hooks you from the start.
