Saw they have a 7 day trial so I thought I'd D/L it and give it a go.  I was in on the pre-launch beta and stress testing so I had a good idea of what to expect.

First downer was my guy was gone.  Don't know if it was a pre-launch wipe or the server went away, but all in all it was probably for the best as it forced me to replay it from the start.  Lots of it was familiar, some new.

After leaving the island I got my first big upper as I see they totally redid the estate setup.  Much nicer now IMO.  Actually seems like an estate should vice the old tract housing setup.

5 more days.  It's still pretty much on rails and it wasn't completed in the higher levels I know, but it makes for a nice change of pace.

Yeah the game is pretty much DOA but to their credit they are leaving it open. I don't know where but somewhere you can buy the game for 10 dollars or less and not have to pay again until the game gets a F2P overhaul or they give up on it.

 

As far as people I think it is a very low pop and scattered but there are some that hang around here and in the forums so you might be able to find some kindred spirits for grouping or chat.

 

Good luck and whether you stay or move on, hope it works out.

Very true.  Well just to add, here's from playing abit more:

It was released, bombed as a P2p / subscription game and is now B2p until / if they ever go to a F2p model. They still have the 7 day trial for people to check it out.

As far as buying goes, you can pick it up for $9.95 (got mine at GameTap with a bonus item included) and can play without a subscription for as long as you want.

I was one of the Beta / Stress testers way back before launch; it had bugs, not alot of quests and your estate (kind of like housing) looked like tract housing in R/L.

Since launch; they've added a bunch more quests, your estate actually looks like a villa (which needs repair, but some of the quests you get are one's that fix the place up), and it still has some bugs and is a bit laggy. Think AoC for the spec's and your pretty close.

For what you get for $9.95, it is more cost effective than alot of offline SPG's. The fantasy element is better described as a mythological element with faun's, centaurs and your choosen God talking to you and giving you some quests.

The starter island is on rails for quests, but once out of there it goes more sandbox style with quests scattered all over and exploration points. Best part is the minion system which allows you to build up a squad of troops to command.

Not alot of people play now a days. Saw a high of 4 the other day and 1 player was questing in the same area I was today. Best way to play would be for you and a few of your friends to get together and all play together.

For those that might wander that way I'm Alolos on the Bacchus server.

Still no news, nothing. I guess it is as dead as it can be. Sad. It had potential, but then again, with noone that knows how to program there, it will never happen.
