Ba-na-na!

Pre-ordered and got 6 + 2 months sub + master package. Its a great game if you play it with friend(s). Otherwise not so much. Funcom portrays TSW as something you've never done before in your life. I am not sure which zombie booze they have got themselves drunk with. Game mechanics is a regular quest system. They have cutscenes and good story element like in LOTRO. Customization is ok I guess, but I'd say its lacking. Crafting system is very boring and falls behind because you can get everything from questing and looting.

Setting is great, great graphics and pretty much everything that is not related to game mechanics is great. But looting, combat, crafting, PvP all those are so so. Some games have it done better others worse. TSW is somewhere in the middle. Presentation is great but after you play a bit you start running into bugged quests that dont advance, lack of customization (while Item Store has huge inventory of cosmetic clothes you will find little to none of those in game until you reach specifc faction standing or get a specific achievement).

All in all - good fun with friends. Even though a lot of quest objectives are not shared between team members so you have to do them multiple times for each team member. Dungeons are fun, but pretty much everything gets to the same as on surface except mobs have more HP and Boss int he end sometimes has 'some' strategy behind killing it.

As further you get in game as duller it becomes. Seems likes a regular case of beginning levels polished like in every MMO and then higher level contect gets dull with time.

Right on target imo.

If they ignore just how horrendous the combat is then you know there's something fishy going on here at MMORPG..

Same for their generic "F2P options" for character creation to force people into their cash shop for anything different.

Quests are about all the game has going for it..

I played during the very last beta weekend prior to release. The combat was unfortunately the major detractor for me in buying this game. Most other things about the game I really liked including the overly-complicated skill wheel advancement.

 

But the combat is what you (typically) spend the most time doing, and I really couldn't get past the whole 'wow rogue' thing with every weapon. I'll definitely be giving this game another look if they have a free trial, and see if I can get past that hitch.

Current MMO dev teams = Keystone cops.A pure comedy of errors,sadly its not as intentional.

7/05/12 11:05:02 AM#25

"Character creation was something I felt all along would be a make-or-break feature for TSW and I think that Funcom has done OK in this regard. It’s not perfect, but it’s not a game breaker"

 

Sums up the review right there....Its a make or break feature, that isnt make or break.......I dont know which made me laugh more,the above, or the continued hype that this game has a "learning curve" to speak of....Course,the idea that a skill deck is complex is in the running also.

oh and how the clothing choices "just make this game",why its like playing with paperdolls :P Or, so im told......Hey ! Perhaps that could be funcoms next game ! The Barbie Fashion MMO ! Just imagine the learning curve they could put in that game,which shoes go with which earings,etc....OH and the shopping trips,sure to appeal to every preteen girl !

Hahaha. It's precisely this that got me to say, "OK. I need to actually look at this game for real now. Either this game is good or someone poisoned all of our forumites!"

Good and fair review. 

I totally agree. TSW really bring something new and fresh to the mmo genre. The ambiance is indeed amazing. The sound, the music, cutsenes the very very dark environments, just makes me wan't more of this. Just love the horror theme. I said it before and i say it again. I really believe this mmo is one of the most important mmo's released the last years.

They dare do do something new. To challenge to player. Make them use their brain, when they play.

A game that could be so much more if they had took on board the criticisms of the combat animations/mechanics that had been being raised for the last 2.5 years.  I like many others chose to not buy it (the first major MMO since 2005 I haven't) based on this and they missing out on a massive part of the market due to it. 

 

Almost everyone I know who hasnt bought it which is 99% of my MMO Playing friends,  have chosen to stay where they are or nto play anything at all than pick up TSW and all list that exact same reason for not purchasing.

A good read of early thoughts, but I'm looking forward to more on the actual gameplay in the next round of the review. I am glad the character creation has been improved - even if marginally - as I am a huge fan of customization and (like most) was disappointed in beta.

While I would consider playing in a trial again in the future, with the release of GW2 coming I just don't see myself investime time into this game in the near-term. I am very interested to see how it shapes up, as it looks like it could be a pleasant alternative to the Fantasy/Future/Space MMOs out there.

AoC was all about the combat and little else. We all remember how that worked out.  Maybe Funcom decided to put some man hours into content and story this time around. That being said, the combat isn't *that* bad.  I've seen worse.  *cough cough Shadowbane coughhh*

Well, the world is very instanced, though TSW isn't bad. I was closed beta tester, but I am not playing at launch. Game is a mishmash of esoteric and occult ideas. Ultimetely,t hough, it isn't anything particularly new, so as an mmo I think it likely niche to those interested in the subject of the mmo. There are some iritating features to the game which are touch upon in review part one, and also there are some bugs present.

 

My review score 7/10

 

my review of your post is a 6/10

Agreed, hopefully this game breaks the mold of the genre and we less and less games like Tera/Rift/TOR

I like the review.   Also like the game.  I purchased and downloaded it yesterday, and was able to snag about 3 hours of playtime before having to go to bed.  So far I've been pleasantly surprised.  I know 3 hours isn't nearly enough time to draw a solid conclusion, but I am looking forward to some more playtime over the next few days/weekend.. much more so than any other game I have played recently.

I agree with everything aside from needing a respec option. It requires the same amount of experience to get an AP at every point the game. Later on, if you don't like what you have, you can literally fill out an entire innner skill ring in about 30 minutes. I've switched from blades, to blood, to elemental, to pistols all on the same character and still feel on par with characters that haven't changed specs at all.

My review score 7/10

 

I have read your comments and it seems like you were not happy with the game or style. I don't know any other game that has story I like as much. I really enjoy seeing enemy target zones show to get out of the way and the active dodge. There is so many different ways to play that after a couple of hundred AP you can have different builds that do different things while still heading toward finishing your deck to pick up a costume. This doesn't seem like any other game I have played in any way except Chronicles of the Spellborn.

 

I would like more robust characters but then again they don't really bother me too much. I do try but not too hard as with clothing options then might not be exact body type I would like but most times I am looking at my backside.

 

My review of the game is 8 out of 10

 

Overall I am not interested in the esoteric and occult. I enjoy the gameplay and storytelling enough to play though it doesn't really appeal to me. Give me space or steampunk.

 

My review of your post is 0 out of 10.

Regarding cut-scenes at least, I figured that's why SWTOR didn't allow body size customization. On the other hand, Aion has the most extreme variation of body sizes you'll see, and it didn't seem to impact their cutscenes; there are very few cinematics though, not like SWTOR or TSW.

Actually SWTOR has body size customisation. You can choose between thin, athletic and powerlifter body types.
