Argo game play isn't too bad for a FTP game, better than a lot of them, but it is a typical grind fest and it sufers from the ported game syndrom. The bugs don't get fixed . The forums are pretty much dead looking at the dates on the posts. From what I have read there are hardly any people still playing. I managed to get to lvl 17 and did the pet quest, but I havn't managed to find a pet merchant in Inisum. The marker is there but no npc. So I figure that got taken out along with the vehicles. I noticed a post on their forums about the vehicles being taken out for some repairs, so I asume they did the same with the pets and that was months ago.
If you are looking for an mmo single player game because your board then go for it, but if your looking for a community don't bother.
I have been watching the progress of Ao for a while now and I even tried it a few months back. I am a massive fan of sandbox games. I used to play SWG back in 2003 and EVE-online which I still have an active account, both of those games good or bad brought out updates and EVE still does constantly.
Looking at the AO website there seems to be a huge lack of any meaningful updates over the past years, apart from money making expansions of course. My biggest concern is why it has taken all these years to improve the graphics and fix major bugs which I have noticed people asking for ?. It seems to me they gave up on it and just left a skeleton crew to keep the servers running and little else.
One day I will find another sandbox game to call home, untill then I will remain a game hopper.
