OP  3/14/12 3:10:24 PM#1

During last week's Game Developer's Conference, our team had the opportunity to learn a lot more about Funcom's The Secret World. In the first of our two previews of TSW, we give our readers an overview of the game and our thoughts about it. Read on!

My initial impressions of The Secret World are of a love child between the Dresden Files, Left 4 Dead, and maybe some Deus Ex: Human Revolution and Alan Wake thrown in there for good measure.  Funcom's MMORPG has a fun, refreshing modern world with a clean, minimalist user interface and cinematic story dialogue sequences.  It also has a dark and cryptic feel to it, with great lighting effects and some scripted survival/horror type events in the Templar area that I got to play with.  Fighting monsters in TSW feels pretty comfortably like MMO combat, but a little more action-oriented with the ability to run-and-gun, and I liked that my NPC party members were chatting away through combat, providing a context and tone for what we were up against.  The demo build that I played looked polished and ran well, with a few framerate issues and rough edges here and there.

I think gameplay videos are better than write-ups - then you can get a real feel for the game.

This game really looks good. I love the concepts, the settings, the mechanics. At least according to what's been released.

But I will wait for a while on this one. I need to know that they aren't going to pull the same crap in this game's Cash Shop that they pulled in Anarchy Online's Cash Shop.

The combat didn't really impress me at all.... Non of the zombies (just before the boss fight) even moved..... They wales up pulled 2-3 of them and the rest stood there. Rinse and repeat. Not much fun there.

The "fun"is dictated by the dificulty of the mob.  as the voice explained it was a Wave thing, so first 1, then 2, then 4 then the remaining 8 ..then the boss. 

but eh 5 sec of video sure can show you the lack of fun in a game eh.

Looks cool, but I still remember the AoC launch ... taking a wait and see on this. Given the recent articles, I'm glad I took a wait and see approach with TOR too.

I don't if I want less content that's more polished and less buggy, but something's gotta give with MMO launches. Half finished games and broken content just doesn't cut it anymore.

If you don't worry about it, it's not a problem.

People have been saying this for years too. And yet, it continues.

I'm really starting to worry about the close proximity of THIS game's release to GW2.  I have to buy 2 to 3 copies of games when the family is playing and they've expressed interest in both these games.  This makes me a little....I don't know....sad.  I don't want to miss either game, but if I am forced to choose due to close release will be GW2 for me.

This summer is going to be awesome.  I may age 10 years due to lack of sleep however.
