its a themepark,it has your standard instances,battle ground type pvp.Other than that, it is one of a kind.

And, ironically, there is a fun, family-friendly theme park in the 2nd map.   Be sure to bring the kids.

Well they sure put themeparks back on the map again

 

but back to the orriginal question..

i dont think there are any mmos out there that you can compare this game with...  There are just to many great stories out her that you dont want to miss.

Best MMO experiences : EQ(PvE), DAoC(PvP), WoW(total package) LOTRO (worldfeel) GW2 (Artstyle and animations)
Currently playing : The Elder Scrolls Online and Wildstar

The Critical Hit Pretzel!

I'd say... GW2 would be the best way to describe its combat at least. A bit clunky and floaty feeling at times. Outside that though, it tends to be its own kind of beast. Can't really compare games exactly to it. While the combat isn't stunning, its entertaining enough and you might be more attached then me (Found it far to weak in GW2, though TSW the setting and all managed to hold my attention at least a little more).

Coh is the closest comparison

Both tsw and gw2 borrowed its state based combat / gameplay, although coh is tab target of course.

It takes place in modern times like coh

The player characters are basicly superpowered humans in tsw

Both games have an emphasis on rp and small scale pve

Both games have a complex and good character progression system

Both games have your clothing being statless and your gear bonuses coming from invisible upgrades

Both games aren't particularly quest hub driven and instead have quests dotted about the place

Both games have a flexible group composition where you don't need a dedicated tank and healbot, providing you have damage mitigation / crowd control / heals spread throughout your team

Both games have hidden lore items you collect through the world

Both games have outdoor zone bosses you can fight.

Both games are the only heavy pve mmos I've actually enjoyed playing (well early wow too)
