I do appreciate the video, but didn't Pokket already do a "first impression" type video for this game already? I do have to say Ripper is more animated in his video than Pokket (sorry Pokket, still love you >.<).

Either way the game was still not worth the effort of anymore videos! It has such a slow cutscene feature and old graphics/gameplay that I only got about 40 min into the game before wanting to slice my wrists! If this game came out in 1990 it may have been thought of as a "good game", but there just is not a polish to the game that needs to be there in present day gaming.

I lasted about an hour in beta.  This game just isn't up to the standard we expect in a modern MMO.  Apart from the hitching and poor perfomance we hope improves at launch, the slooooowww cutscenes, seemly endless text from quest givers, and animatons make be think  this game belongs in the time of the original Wizardry series.  By the way, Wizardry VIII remains one of my fondest memories of a RPG.  Sadly, Wizardry Online just doesn't do it for me.

(Yes the NDA was lifted for beta)

Nonderyon writes: Good luck with the leveling, you have to hit the soul lvl 2(around character lvl 7 or 9, i dont remember well...) to kill another player(who is min. soul lvl 2). anyway,i dont have problems with graphic or sloooooow cutscene, but i cant tell it about that for combat, that just not work for me...i definetly play this game when they do something about the combat system, i mean useable one. <- my poor english, sorry about that :) Tue Dec 18 2012 6:30AM Report

Opening door might be cool for the first time, but I'm betting after 10.000th door it wouldn't be anymore.
